  2. Real time collaborative PDF Markup

    Real time collaborative PDF markup between multiple users. Similar to how the iwork suite can be used collaboratively but with PDF. Drawing tools and iOS integration would be important. maybe using something like https://www.pdftron.com

  3. Disable Preview Thumbnail feature

    It would be good to have a profile setting to disable the Preview Thumbnail feature for my account. The feature should also remember whether you toggle the feature off for a specific file, so you don't have to repeatedly toggle it every time you view the file.

  4. Print in Preview Mode when using web-based Box

    It would be a game changer if Box added in the ability to print documents directly from the preview view while using the browser version of Box. It is very time consuming and labor intensive to have to open each document in their native application to print them. If we could instead print documents directly from the preview mode in the browser, it would make things much easier.

    AS A Box User who accesses pst and mbox files in Box
    I WANT to be able to view those files in the Box Preview window
    SO THAT I do not have to download the files from Box and open them with another application.

  8. Support frame-by-frame video preview

    I am shocked that Box doesn’t allow frame by frame movement through web viewing. This is something that should be addressed as a priority. I won’t be subscribing to Box until this is an available function. This is so necessary in the television industry without downloading.

  10. Add-ons tab and drawing ability

    The one crucial thing is that people cannot today leave google docs or other Word editing software. Because the G-suite integration misses the add-ons tab. You can buy stuff via the add-ons tab in google drive, like icons and symbols. These cannot be used in the g suite integration.

    Also the draw option is not available. I want to be able to draw tables and figures in my documents, i can't do that. So if im Writing in a document, at some Point i have to stop and refer back to google drive, which makes the whole idea of using…

  13. Download view message could be improved.

    When users go to a shared link, the notice is "We're sorry, this file type is not currently supported". The phrase "not currently supported" is misleading and although there is download button below it, it causes a unnecessary ripple in the users minds as this information is processed. I suggest changing it to "We're sorry, you cannot view this type of file here, but you may download it." Also, it would be nice to have the file name in this message rather than at the top left-hand corner.

  14. Allow Previewer Role the ability to search (ctrl+F) within a file

    We would like to limit download of a file, but allow for the ability to Search the file on box (i.e. view it and search it for keywords).

    On account of our security stance we don’t want to expose the text layer unless a user has permission to download a file. As the text layer is required to initiate search we can not activate the feature for users who don’t have download permissions

  15. Typo

    There is a typo:
    preview.show(fildId, accessToken, options);
    =>
    preview.show(fileId, accessToken, options);

  18. Document stamp / seal of approval

    In addition to being able to watermark documents, users could be authorized by administrators to customize the image to allow the addition of stamps/chops for legal purposes, approvals, compliance reasons, etc.

  20. Include annotations when downloading a file

    Currently, if there are annotations on a file, these are not downloaded when the file is downloaded from Box.
