  2. Ability to find a file or folder using just the ID.

    Is Box working on an easier tool to lookup files and folders based off of ID?

    I'd like to suggest a box tool where we can find the file and folder using just the ID. Having to run a 40+ min report on all of our files and folders anytime a user asks is very time consuming. I get 5+ requests a day.

  3. I have asked to be notified (in the folder settings) when someone uploads a document but I don't receive any emails.

    I have asked to be notified (in the folder settings) when someone uploads a document but I don't receive any emails. I used to receive emails but I don't anymore. Why did that change??

  6. update date information

    When someone update files on the box, the "edit date" has not been updated on my box system.
    How should I change the setting?
    Or are there some issues on the box now?

  7. viewing annotated PDFs with 100% opacity highlights completely blots out text on browser but not acrobat or Docutments by Readdle

    I like to annotate PDFs on my iPad (through Documents) and browser (through Box tools). When I preview a document with 100% opacity highlights on a browser it begins to load with readable text but switches to completely blotted out text when fully loaded. I used 100% opacity because it looks the best on acrobat PDF and ipad app Documents by Readdle. Please change settings so that 100% opacity highlights do not completely blot out text when previewing in browser.

  9. Ability to PAUSE during an audio recording in BOX CAPTURE

    During an audio recording, be able to PAUSE, then continue with same recording - so all audio is contained in same audio file (for transcription) Example; audio interviews; record intro with identifying information, including confidential ID, pause recording, then invite interviewee into interview, then re-start recording. When we send these files for transcription the confidential identifying information is included at the beginning of each file - but the interviewee is not aware of the confidential ID.

  10. Reorder Files within a folder

    There needs to be an option to reorder files in a specific order besides files size, name, and updated.

  11. Translations from English to Japanese

    Immediately after editing a file, I will receive a warning message of monitoring. The screen remains in English. Would you please translate to Japanese?

  12. Box connector to streamsets

    I am not sure if there is a box connector to streamsets. Would help a lot if there is a way to connect to streamsets.

  13. Notarize the application for MacOS

    Box Drive seems to be notarized, however the Box Tools / Box Edit installer is currently not, so my system warns me that this is "an application downloaded from the internet".

  14. Ability to set default application for Box Edit opening .md file

    Sometimes Box Edit opening files in the program not set as default on MacOS

    If a user installs Xcode on Mac OS, the user cannot open .md files with default application which set on Mac OS. The user would like to open .md file with Atom.app but it opened with Xcode.
    User can do nothing to change the application. it is the OS that it's selecting XCode when it's installed.

  15. Box Tools install to be shown as "Box Edit" instead of "Box Tools"

    While I understand the Box Tools installer also contains the Box Local Com Server application, it is there to support Box Edit so labeling the entire installation more explicitly as Box Edit, instead of Box Tools, will be more clear.

  16. Option to open links directly in desktop applications (rather than Box Preview)

    Currently when I receive a link to a file on Box via email, clicking the link takes me to Box Preview. A couple of steps are needed before I can open the file using the relevant desktop application (e.g. Word, rather than Word Online or Box Preview), which is invariably what I want to do. It is problematic to need to access files via a web browser if I am not connected to the internet or if my connection is poor. Please could you introduce a way to quickly open lists directly in desktop applications?

  17. Folder Tree View in WebApp (Windows Explorer/Finder, eBuilder)

    I noticed that Box does not have a high-level folder tree view, except in the 'All Files' page (you click on the arrow next to "All Files"). Many Box folders in my company's folder structure take a very long time to load - however the folder tree view on the 'All Files' page loads quicker, but still not as fast as another application like eBuilder. Having a permanent option on the web application would be very efficient when tracking down files, and load times won't be as cumbersome. Currently, having to click through multiple folders in order to access the…

  19. 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.
