  2. I want BoxEdit/BoxDrive to support the Save As feature

    When a user opens a file from the web interface in a desktop app such as Excel, makes edits, selects Save As, and renames the file, the new file does not get saved. Countless hours' worth of work have been lost because of this significant problem. If a user does all the same steps with the exception of opening a file from File Explorer (BoxDrive) instead of from the web interface, the new file is saved. We need the same functionality in the web interface!

  3. Automatic validation of Box Folder and File access

    At IBM we have various tools that have automated validations, where people who have access to the tool are notified to ensure that they have a continued business need to access the tool. At times the manager is also copied on the email.
    I would like to see Box for IBM implement something for us to manage Box Folders and Files which people have access to IBM Confidential Information be more protected on a regular basis.
    Thank you!

  4. How can I set an opening date and time for files?

    I need to open files progressively for a class. There is an expiration setting but not an opening setting. It would be ideal to have both an opening and expiration date/time setting.

  6. I would like to use the orange/yellow comment box as a frame without the comment box showing up

    When presenting a PDF in front of a client. The pen is messy. The highlighted (comment box) works really well. How can I eliminate the comment section?

  7. I would like the BoxTools auto-update re-entrant interval to be shortened.

    I would like the BoxTools auto-update re-entrant interval to be shortened.

    Currently, BoxTools checks for new updates every 5~6 hours.
    If an update fails and it takes 5~6 hours to get the next update, users will not be able to use the latest version of the software, which will have a significant impact on them.
    Therefore, we would like to see the re-entrant interval shortened when an update fails.

    BoxToolsの自動更新のリエントラントの間隔を短くして欲しい

    現在BoxToolsは5~6時間ごとに新しい更新がないかを確認する挙動です。
    更新が失敗した場合に次回の更新情報の取得までに5~6時間要すると最新のバージョンでの利用が出来ず不具合が生じるなどのユーザー影響が大きいです。
    その為、更新に失敗した場合のリエントラントの間隔を短くして欲しいです。

  8. Future tasking

    Sometimes I drop a file on box and needed a reminder in the future to look at the file again. I wish that box had a function where I could task myself to look at a file or take an action on a file in the future.

  9. I want to create custom report for approval pending and files which was rejected on particular folders

    We are working on multiple approvals on files, so want to track how many files waiting for approval or rejection and how many files got approval by whom and when it will help us to manage the monthly report.

  10. Default email notification for a folder

    Set a default notification setting for a folder (i.e. Every collaborator gets a notification email when a new file is uploaded), until the individual wants to change that and override it. This would be helpful in the case where we want to utilize Box to share files with external clients and avoid sending a separate email to them to let them know that we've uploaded a new file. It would be a hassle (and maybe not likely to happen) to rely on external clients to change their own personal notification settings.

  11. Box Cataloging Spreadsheet

    I would like a live spreadsheet that shows an outline of our folders and files, who updated them, and when - and that we could add columns to that we manually update. This could be within box or another app.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
