  1. Add the ability for previewer/uploader, viewer, and previewer to preview video files that contain watermarks.

    Currently, due to the specifications in the following article, previewer/uploader, viewer, and previewer cannot preview watermark enabled video files from Box.


    Box Notes, video, audio, flash, .msi, .exe, .zip, and 3D files do not support watermarking. Enabling this feature prevents previewer uploaders, viewers and previewers from viewing these file types.

    Watermarking Files:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044195253


    For company operations, when sharing video files with users outside the company, it is a rule to collaborate and share with users outside the company with previewer.
    Since there are many situations where we want to prohibit downloading and screenshotting, we don't want to be unable to…

  3. I want to display the same date and time as the original file when I preview the file.

    Please fix the following issues in the preview, which are also noted as known limitations:.

    [Excerpt from the article]
    Excel preview does not follow time information in the original file. When previewing Excel documents in Box, the time-related functions (for example, TODAY() or TIME()) do not display accurately. This is because Excel date/time functions are dynamic, while the previewed document is static. Box preview obtains and displays the date the file was previewed. A static version of the time/date is displays in the previewed document, based on the time the preview was generated.

  5. I want to name or add descriptions to the different versions of a file

    I have some documents with hundreds of versions. Right now, though, the only versions I would ever refer to are those uploaded in the past few weeks, when I remember the changes made and have context for why the file was updated. Looking back on new versions a year ago, I have no way of knowing what changes were made, what versions were major changes and what were marginal. The ability to preview prior versions is nice, but without the ability to review changes to the text, I would spend hours trying to understand what was different about a prior…

  7. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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。

  13. 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。

  14. 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

  18. We would like to be able to open other file types (those not currently listed in the supported file types) as text files,

    We would like to be able to open other file types (those not currently listed in the supported file types) as text files, so we don't have to download those files. We'd prefer not to have to download the files just to view them.

  19. Ability to add tags to multiple photos at once

    There needs to be a way to Quickly add a tag (after one is created) to additional photos. In other words, once I create a tag once, I need to be able to add this same tag to many other photos (one at a time though) with the simple click of the mouse, or keyboard shortcut, or similar. Having to go through the process of adding tags (as I'm reading in the instructions) is too time consuming when dealing with 1500+ photos. End goal is to flag photos as "favorites", that others can see and also add flags/favorites, and/or sort…
