  1. Native to Box Music Player integration

    We would like a native-to-Box music player. Formerly, the 'autoplay' function, when enabled on a music file such as MP3, would then cause all the remaining songs in a folder to play through, ie so you could listen through to a full album instead of needing to press 'play' on each track one by one. Now that function is gone. But we'd like to see a better solution in general for listening to music files we own.

    We store an archive of music albums for our organization and this would definitely make accessing them more practical. Right now, we have…

  2. Download selected version when preview unavailable

    Download currently selected version in main window when preview is unavailable on Box.com

    Presently, if the preview is unavailable when reviewing file versions, there is a "Preview is unavailable" message and a "Download" button appears there, but it only downloads the current (latest) version, not the version selected in the side bar.

    While the file is available in the side bar with the ellipses, the download button does not indicate that is will only download the latest version, and not the version selected (but not preview able) in the side. This has caused confusion with our employees as our large…

  3. I want you to make the preview of Excel easier to see

    Excel is hard to see the preview.
    The page is split unnaturally.
    For example, in the case of Google Sheets, it looks the same whether it is Read Only or editable.
    In the same way, I want you to improve it so that it looks the same regardless of whether it is Read Only or edit OK.

    エクセルがプレビューが見にくい。
    不自然にページが分割される。

    例えばGoogleスプレッドシートの場合、Read Onlyでも編集OKでも、見た目は変わらない。
    同じように、Read Onlyでも編集OKでも、見た目は同じになるように改善して欲しい。

  4. Please enable autoplay for multiple files in a folder

    You used to be able to enable autoplay for files in a box folder. Now, even if you click on "enable" for autoplay, it does not. Why????

  6. Correct the wording of 'Prior Versions'

    Your Website states that:
    The maximum number of prior file versions you can access corresponds to your Box account type:

    Personal Free - 1 Version

    This simply isn't true, and I have argued this in a ticket and with a live agent, but the statement implies you can access a prior version of your file.

    Definition of Prior is "earlier in time or order" so this makes your statement false as you cannot access anything but the CURRENT version in the Free version.

    I would suggest the wording:
    The maximum number of file versions you can access corresponds to your…

  8. Add 'share current page' tickbox to sharing popup

    As a user, I want to be able to share the current page of a file I'm previewing in Box so that I can direct my colleagues to a specific point in a slide deck as opposed to the start

  9. Edit thumbnails

    We would like the ability to choose/change the thumbnail of an MP4 file. The random thumbnail
    of my latest project shows our guest speaker in an awkward manner. We don't want her to be hesitant to share it! We offer a library of MP4s and consider thumbnail modification an esthetic/branding opportunity.

  10. open a file in a defined app in a folder

    i store files in a folder that are simple text files that can be viewed by any text editor. your preview option will not allow me to view them online simply because the extension is not txt.

    sometimes its ".dat" or something else, but its still plain text. I should be able to select the viewer in the preview option and not have to download a text file to view it. your ms office word viewer would even allow me to see it.

    thanks

  11. convert

    Is there a way to convert the documents to pdf files in Box instead of downloading them and convert them manually to PDF file? If no, can you consider adding it to a setting where this option is available?

  13. SVG thumbnails corrupted

    Hi,

    We are using box to store loads of SVG images of apartment floor plans.
    When looking at a folder containing these images, the thumbnails are filled with large black areas, making it impossible to make out anything.

    From what I can see, the svg image preview is a .jpg image, so when the thumbnail is generated it probably fills some transparent areas with black.

    Would it be possible to just use the SVG as a thumbnail instead? in our case all the generated jpg thumbnails are actually larger than the original svg.

    I would provide an image / example…

  14. enlargement of previewer movie over 100%

    Though Box previewer has the full screen mode, further enlargement beyond the screen size cannot be realized.

    Share screens of Zoom can be enlarged up to 300% by participant's manipulation. This function is convenient to selectively read a document written in small texts.

    I wish the legibility when a recorded movie of Zoom is redistributed via the Box viewer.

  17. Large file preview support

    A 360 degree video is taken and processed for upload to Box with the ".360" extension
    The files could potentially be very large (up to or sometimes more than 5 GB)
    With the use of Box sharing features, the 360 degree videos to be viewed/previewed by others

  18. Specify where the preview starts.

    We upload a video to the Box and previews be accessed through a shared link.
    In this case, the preview starts at the beginning of the video (0 minutes and 0 seconds).

    We'd like to be able to specify where the preview starts (e.g., 5 minutes and 0 seconds).

    We believe that being able to freely determine where to start the video preview will broaden the use of the video preview.

    We hope this feature will be added as a new feature.

    私たちはBoxに動画をアップロードし、共有リンクを介してプレビューにアクセスすることができます。
    この場合、プレビューは動画の先頭(0分0秒)から始まります。

    プレビューの開始位置(例:5分0秒)を指定できるようにしたいと考えています。

    動画プレビューの開始位置を自由に決められるようになることで、動画プレビューの利用の幅が広がると考えています。

    新機能として追加されることを期待しています。

  19. Subtitle Format Expansion (SSA)

    Right now the only supported subtitle formats are SRT (subrip), WebVTT, mov_text, and ccaption.

    We have a large number of videos that utilize a widely utilized standard called Substation Alpha (SSA).

    Please update the product for support of the SSA format.

  20. Word Document preview blurry

    Text in Word document previews is awfully blurry and splotchy.
    Looks as though it was rendered and then rescaled to fit the window.
