  1. Lock Sorting Settings of Files & Folders independently

    We would like to be able to lock the sorting settings of files in folders? If we sort the folders based on A-Z the files inside the folders swap to Z-A. We would want them to be fully independent from each other.

  2. Keep certain folder's contents from showing up in search results

    I have several folders w/ very common words and randomly generated filenames, that keep popping up when i am using the search function in box.
    It would be nice, to have the option to shield a few folders from appearing in search results.

  3. Search file contents for non-standard file types (e.g. py, R)

    It would be a wonderful if Box could be adjusted to index and search the file contents for files beyond Microsoft Office and text files. For example, much of what I would like to search is in python or R scripts, so being able to index and search those files as well would be very helpful.

    (it would also be very useful to search specific metadata field such as "name" or "type", like windows explorer enables)

  5. Email notifications based on saved search

    Provide the ability for a user to save an arbitrary search query (including the use of Metadata templates if applicable) and be notified of new content that arrives in a Box folder when it matches that saved search.

    This would immensely help our Box users be notified in real-time as we upload content that they are interested in. Otherwise, they have to periodically search the entire folder at some period of the day to find this new content of interest. Using the current notification capability that triggers on all uploads would be too much "noise" to the user; they need…

  6. Please make it possible to search by file ID/folder ID when searching in the Recycle Bin. ごみ箱内検索するときにファイルID/フォルダIDで検索できるようにしてほしい。

    Currently, you can only search by file/folder name, and there is a risk of restoring the wrong target if there are files with the same name.
    (In Japanese) 
     現在は、ファイル名/フォルダ名でしか検索することが出来ず、同名ファイルがある場合に誤った対象を復元するリスクがあります。

  7. Support for CorelDraw (*.cdr) files as a recognized "image" or "drawing" for search filters

    Support for CorelDraw (*.cdr) files as a recognized "image" or "drawing" for search filters. It is most similar to Adobe Illistrator, so perhaps it should be in the same category as *.ai files.

  8. Better searchability on assets

    inside of a folder with hundreds of assets, it would be amazing to have the letters a-z on the left side so you can click on the letter that corresponds with the first letter in an assets title and go directly to those assets. For example, if you click on 'G'. all assets that start with the letter 'G' come up.
    Currently you have to scroll. sometimes for a while to get to the proper file. When you have hundreds of assets within 1 folder it's laborious to get to the one you want!

  9. Being able to search through files by the date the file was created (in the metadata)

    A feature I've wanted many times now, and would love to see implemented, is to be able to search through my files with the filter of Date Created (regarding the creation date of the file in its metadata), not just the date of when I uploaded the file.

  10. Search content in public shares

    I would like to be able to search content in public shares the same as if the content were shared internally.

  11. Boolean search should generate results as part of type ahead query

    Boolean search should generate results as part of type ahead query. Today, we can search for "text AND text2", but it will not generate results until the user submits the full query. This would improve usability.

  15. Enhance user experience for searching files with tag

    As legal department, we manage contract documents using tag but when we search files filtering with them, user experience is not intuitive when I follow steps described below.

    1. search a keyword filtering with tag
    2. change the keyword on search box
    3. filter for tag set in 1 is reset and disappeared

    Also, we would like to search file filtering with tag without any keywords in the search box as populating keyword is currently a must to start to search unlike Metadata, which is also inconvenient.

  16. searching for users (external or managed)

    Suggestions for improvements : search field for users (external or managed) should look for characters. For instance , if you type a domain name or name, you should be able to filter the (external or managed) users list according to the characters entered into the search field and look into both the name and email info if the characters can be found. We don't always know the exact email or name...

  17. First search with detaled contents filters

    Currently the initial search for Box items can be filtered by only three types of contents, then you can squeeze the first search results with more detailed filters, like tags or size etc.
    It would be better to be able to use those detailed filters from the beginning.

  18. Month and Year options when searching Metadata date fields do not select

    When you try to select a month or year in the date picker when searching or filtering against metadata, the date picker disappears.

    This means you have to scroll through the various months to get the date you want to select instead of using the filter options.

  19. Please implement the search filter of "User who deleted" in the Trash.

    Please implement the search filter of "User who deleted" in the Trash.
    (This is not same as the filter of "Items I owned" or "Items I deleted".)
    Currently we can use owner filtering when searching for content in the Trash.
    For further convenience, we need the feature to use filtering even for users who have deleted content.

  20. Disable full-text search for a subset of Box content

    Suggest adding the ability to disable full-text search for only a subset of Box content versus just enterprise-wide.
