  2. [Support preview of ".xct" files] Support preview of ".xct" files

    We use DocuWorks for our business.
    At this time, the Box preview supports ".xdw" and ".xbd", but unfortunately ".xct" is not yet supported.

    A similar request was submitted on the following BoxPulse, which was "Delivered" as of 09/2022, but only the ".xct" is still not in preview.
    https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/39875047-preview-files-about-xdw-xbd-and-xct-in-box-for-io

    Therefore, we need to register Fujifilm's source files with AppleStore in order to use DocuWorks from Box for EMM.
    It is very inconvenient that ".xct" cannot be previewed when using DocuWorks, so please add it to the preview support list.


    弊社では業務にDocuWorksを利用しています。
    現時点では、Boxのプレビューでは「.xdw」と「.xbd」に対応していますが、残念ながら「.xct」には未対応です。

    以下のBoxPulseで類似の要望が投稿されており、
    2022年09月の時点で「配信済み」になっていますが、現在も「.xct」のみプレビュー対象になっていません。
    https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/39875047-preview-files-about-xdw-xbd-and-xct-in-box-for-io

    そのため、弊社ではBox for EMMからDocuWorksを利用するにあたって、AppleStoreに富士フィルムのソースファイルを登録する必要が生じています。
    DocuWorksを利用するにあたり、「.xct」がプレビューできないのは大変不便なのでプレビューのサポート対象に加えてください。

  3. Allow preview/editing of Office files other than PW-protected Excel (.xlsx) files.

    We feel that the inability to preview/edit PW protected files makes it less convenient.
    In order to ensure security, we often assign passwords to not only Excel files, but also to PowerPoint and Word files, and there are many opportunities to collaborate on editing PowerPoint and Word files. This is because not supporting online access reduces work efficiency.

    PW保護しているファイルがプレビュー/編集できないことで利便性が低いと感じております。
    当社ではセキュリティを確保する目的で、Excel に限らず PowerPoint や Word についてもファイル自体にパスワードを付与していることが多いという点と、Power Point、Word ファイルを共同編集する機会も多く、Online で対応していないことにより作業効率が下がってしまうためです。

  4. About Comment Function

    ■request
    I would like to have reaction buttons ("Like", "Super Like", "Sad", "Laugh", etc.) for the comments in the box preview screen.

    ■background
    Since the current Box comment function does not have a reaction function, it is necessary to comment even if you agree with or accept the comment.
    We would like to have a reaction button when agreeing with a comment, as we believe this will encourage collaboration.

    【日本語】
    ■要望
    Boxのプレビュー画面でコメントを記入する欄にそのコメントに対してのリアクションボタン(「いいね」や「超いいね」、「悲しい」「笑い」等)が欲しい

    ■背景
    現状Boxコメント機能はリアクション機能がない為、コメントに対して了解したり同意する場合もコメントする必要があります。
    コメントに対して同意する意味を込める時にリアクションボタンがあるとコラボレーションを活発に行う事ができると考えている為機能実装を希望します。

  5. Ability to rotate multi-page TIFF files in Box Preview

    For scanning use cases, Content is typically scanned into Box as a TIFF file that can have multiple pages. For review purposes, it would be great to have the ability to rotate individual apges of the TIFF file if they were scanned incorrectly. Otherwise, end users have to download the multi-page TIFF file to rotate files. For our use case, downloading files to local disk should be avoided because of the sensitivity of the files.

  7. want to prevent Excel from moving files on the preview screen.

    want to prevent Excel from moving files on the preview screen.

    In the Excel preview screen, pressing left and right ([←] and [→]) on the keyboard scrolls the file if a cell is already selected.
    However, when the preview screen is open and no cells are selected, it switches to another file.

    It is confusing for users that the keyboard behaves differently depending on the file and cell selection status. We request the ability to change settings to prevent file switching.

    Excelのプレビュー画面でのファイル移動をさせないようにしたい

    Excelのプレビュー画面で、キーボードの左右([←][→])を押すと、セルを選択した後であれば、スクロールされます。
    しかし、プレビュー画面開いてセル未選択の状態だと別のファイルに切り替わります。

    ファイルやセル選択状況によって、キーボードのの挙動が異なるのはユーザーにとって紛らわしいため
    ファイルの切り替えをさせないように設定変更ができる機能を要望します。

  8. Character code conversion of csv file

    When displaying a csv file in preview, full-width values ​​are garbled.
    It was confirmed that the garbled characters were resolved by changing the character code to [UTF-8 (with BOM)].
    csv is automatically generated, so you need to open each file and change the character code.
    I would like a function such as changing the character code when saving in the settings on the box side.

    プレビューでcsvファイルを表示すると全角の値が文字化けします。
    文字コードを[UTF-8(BOM付き)]へ変更することにより、文字化けが解消することが確認できましたが、csvは自動で生成されるため1ファイルごと開いて文字コードを変更する必要があります。
    box側の設定で保存時に文字コードを変更するなどの機能を希望します。

  9. Default to files being in alphabetical order

    it's such a bummer that I have to click the file button on top to sort an alphabetical order… And it's not even me… there are people on my team we don't know how to do this yet… This should be a very standard feature

  10. Google Sheets preview

    The name of "sheet" on Google spreadsheet is normally displayed in the tab style and we can switch several sheets from one to another. However, when previewing Google Sheets file on Box, the name of sheet are displayed at the top of each page, which forces users to scroll down to the sheet they would like to see.
    I want Google Sheets preview to have the same view and style as the native Google spreadsheet.

  11. Reflect Power Point page number settings in Box preview

    When page numbers are inserted in Power Point starting from the slide following the cover page and the slide start number is set to 0, there is a difference in the page numbers when viewed from the Power Point desktop application and when previewed in Box.
    In the Power Point app, the slide on the page following the cover page has a page number of 1, but in the Box preview screen it is 2.

    There is no workaround for users invited with previewer or shared via a view-only shared link, as they cannot edit or download.
    Please reflect the…

  12. Recommended Content Feature on Preview Page

    Proposing the addition of a "Recommended Content" feature on the preview page, similar to the "customers also viewed" suggestions seen on eCommerce sites.

    This feature would leverage analytics on how collaborators interact with files, identifying patterns to suggest relevant documents that others have viewed under similar contexts.
    The goal is to boost user engagement by highlighting potentially useful but overlooked content, thereby enhancing collaboration and productivity.

    The development of this feature should prioritize privacy and permissions to ensure recommendations are appropriate and secure. By making it easier for users to discover and access relevant content, we can significantly streamline workflows…

    Ease preview restrictions on media files.
    Eliminate the need to process files (separate or compress files).
    Reduce resources on Box and traffic on the network.

  17. Provide option to omit the Signup and Login buttons from shared links (downloladable)

    Please provide the option to omit the Signup and Login buttons for shared links (downloadable).

    The presence of the Signup and Login buttons reduces the value of our Box.com account since the only way to circumvent the Box.com marketing fluff is to copy file from box to our CMS rather than just referencing our Box.com files. The existence of the Signup button both on the preview and pop-up that displays after clicking download results in calls to our support center from visitors to our website. The embed widget unfortunately doesn't improve the issue. Alternatively, if we could embed the Box…

  19. Improve the Level of Fidelity of Text Files Preview in Box's Web App

    Can Box please improve the level of fidelity of text files preview in Box's Web App? We have reports that are generated as text files, and these reports are formatted (with spaces) so the information is readable and consistent. Currently, our users have kept providing us with feed back that they are having a hard time using Box's file preview when looking at these reports because Box file preview does not keep the format they have, and as result these reports look messy and sometimes borderline unreadable. Most of our users just have opted to download these reports to open…

  20. Request: Improvement of preview of high resolution movies

    Request: Improvement of preview of high resolution movie in Box

    Currently, when users preview movie files( .mov) in Box web app, sevearal issues happens depending on the files

    1. Unable to read the preview screen

    2. The preview stops suddenly in the middle of the movie file and unable to start again.

    According to the support ticket, the risk to happen the above is likely to increase when the movie file is relatively high quality/ high resolution. Actually the issues happen when we preview movie files which is 8 minute-long and 13 GB/file. So temporal workaround is to tune it and make…
