  1. Pop-up message when not able to copy ALL data

    It would be strongly needed a pop-up message that informs the user when Box stops copying the data and an information on which data has been copied and which not.

  3. Direct "Save As" when saving from Box Edit to a navigable area on local machine.

    Currently if you hit Save As on the default Box Edit location, it will save the version of the file to the cache and this causes version/maintenance issues with a document.

  5. Automatic update of Box tools from the company LAN via a proxy.

    Box Tools automatic update fails in an environment where Internet communication is performed from the company LAN via a proxy.

    Please change the BoxTools update "Box Edit Upgrade Service" to the specifications that read the ProxySetting of CurrentUser in the Local System and communicate.

    With the current specifications, automatic updates are not possible.
    Therefore, every time there is a version update, a manual update is performed, which takes a lot of man-hours.

    (OS used: Windows10)

    We have verified and confirmed the following. (The log file has also been confirmed.)

    (1) If the logon of "Box Edit Upgrade Service" is "Local…

  6. Box Tools(or other app) Reports

    Ability for Box Admins to run reports to see users who have Box Tools(or other Box Apps) installed. It would make it easier and more efficient for us to contact users who need to update to the latest version if we knew who had which apps and what version.

  7. LocalSystem sees current user's Proxy settings during automatic Box Tools update

    Box Tools Automatic Updates:"Box Edit Upgrade Service", please make sure that LocalSystem refers to the current user's Proxy settings as well as Box Drive automatic update.

    If the logon of "Box Edit Upgrade Service" is LocalSystem, the automatic update of Box Tools will fail. By changing the logon of "Box Edit Upgrade Service" from LocalSystem to the current user, communication via Proxy will be possible and the update will be successful. Also, by setting the Proxy setting equivalent to the current user for LocalSystem with the following command, Box Tools will be updated automatically.

    bitsadmin /Util /SetIEProxy LocalSystem Manual_Proxy <Server…

  8. Ability to go back to the root directory of the box tenant

    When editing documents in box, you should leave the file path at the top of the document preview as well as include a mechanism for going back to my box tenant. Navigating backwards via the browser stops all edits and is delayed. Being able to tell box ignore changes and go back to the box directory listings is a better behavior for the user.

  13. Advanced web based Text/Code editor functionality

    The box is missing a Web-based Text/Code editor, providing capabilities similar to Notepad++ with format & code-based markup using Scintilla-like capabilities.

  14. Action Item Register

    As a user of BOX I would like to be able to have one consolidated lists of all the action items that arise during meetings and I capture in the agenda template provided by Box. This way I can keep track of these action items in one place rather than having to open each agenda/meeting minutes document to list these in another location for tracking purposes.

  16. new box layout is worse than old

    When you upload long list of images, you can't track any more which one was just opened. It is used to be a bar on left hand side to track where I was last, now not even highlight??? It is going to take me 3x time to find out what was the last image I viewed. So disappointed. Can I please return old layout style, or add the bar to track individual files in each folder.

  18. ability to upload direct from a clients google drive to Box

    We have found that most of our clients use google drive for storage of content for us to work with. We could really use a tool that assists us in transfers direct from google drive to our Box

    Thank you

  19. Make an Exit Button Available Again

    The new update removed the ability to exit a document from the File tab. Now I have to type in Box in a new tab and go back to the folder I want by hand every time I want to exit a document and edit another one. Also, it does not always automatically open a new tab anymore when I open a document, which prevents me from being able to have the folder open in another tab.

  20. embed picture without file name

    I'm trying to embed a picture saved to Box into a project, but the title of the photo, as well as the options to log in or sign up appear always. I'd like to remove that header information from my embedded image.
