  1. Ability to preview without comments on word file

    Currently, Box always shows comments on word file in preview.
    This would be a bit hard to see word in preview.
    Since Microsoft Word Desktop application allows you to disable comments on view, we would like Box to implement like this feature.

  3. I would like the kind of functionality in BOX that I get with GoogleDocs

    My main input is that I would like the kind of functionality in BOX that I get with GoogleDocs – in particular the ability to work in a document at the same time, see who is editing the document at a time, track their changes, revert to newer versions. In box, the work is linear and when you are working at the same time and save (if you haven’t lockd people out), it makes another copy. Seems so slow compared to GoogleDoc speed.

  5. Preview password protected documents

    We receive hundreds of password protected documents (excel, word, pdf) from our clients. For security purposes, we want to avoid storing confidential document on local PC and instead view them on the Web.

  11. Slow video preview

    Video files take way too long until the preview starts. Shuttling is not possible until completely buffered.

    To solve this, the preview could be converted in the background into a more web friendly file that starts immediately and allows shuttling. As offered by many other services.

  12. Allow for native editing of video content in Box

    This is a pretty difficult ask but one of my customer has to migrate their video content stored in Box into another cloud app that's focused on video editing. That's alot of content to move and my AE was wondering if we could be better positioned to help them if we offered the ability to do some editing of video in Box.

  13. I would like to be able to play video and audio when previewing.

    I would like to be able to play video and audio when previewing.
    For security reasons, I would like to share video and audio without allowing external users to download them.
    This will be a useful feature for media users.

  14. Data files that are textual are not identified as text for preview

    I'd LOVE for the ability at the enterprise level to be able to say that ANY file with a given extension should be previewed as if it were this other extension. This would both add extensions as WELL as override the Box.com default content type logic.

    examples:

    myCustomersOrderData.edi should be previewed as is it were a text file, so .edi as .txt

    .json as .txt
    .funky as .md

    I say at the enterprise level so this works for manually uploaded files. However, if an appropriate attribute could be sent in the file upload|modify|version APIs, that would be better than nothing.

  16. Please change the resolution of the Box preview function to a higher resolution./ Boxプレビュー機能の解像度を高解像度に変更して欲しい。

    Please change the resolution of the Box preview function to a higher resolution.

    If you specify a magnification level that is sufficient to display the entire page and preview a file containing text, such as PDF or Word, the text resolution is low and the fonts displayed are difficult to read.

    (In Japanese)
    Boxプレビュー機能の解像度を高解像度に変更して欲しい。
    ページ全体を表示する程度の倍率を指定し、PDFやWordなどの文字を含むファイルをプレビューすると、文字の解像度が低く、表示されるフォントが読みづらい。

  17. Option to turn off or remove the Sign Up or Log In screen when clicked on shared links

    I would like the option to turn off or remove the Sign Up or Log In screen when my client clicked on my shared links. This pop-up window confuses them and leading them to think they must Sign Up or Log in in order for them to view and download my shared documents.

    If my client like your product structure, I am sure they will sign up for an account themselves without the need to prompt them every time. This effect my business as I have received many complains about this window. They recommend for me to use other methods.

  18. Please Improve the overwriting of a file with the same name when it is uploaded with "Previewer/uploader" permission.

    Please improve the following problems that occur when using the "Pre Viewer/ Uploader" privilege.

    When a file with the same name as an existing file is uploaded, the file is overwritten and saved.

    When a user with the "Pre Viewer/ Uploader" privilege uploads the same file name, Please the file name should be automatically converted to a different file name from the existing file, such as "File Name_2", so that it can be uploaded.

  20. Box Content Preview: Allow File to be Renamed in Preview UI Element

    Files can only be renamed in the Content Explorer, requiring navigation away from the file to rename while in the Content Preview element. The request is to allow files to be renamed while previewing the file.
