  1. 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.

  2. Ability to save search filter conditions

    I would appreciate if the previous settings for contents filters could be saved so that I can call and use it when searching items with similar criteria.
    Frequently using the same condition to search files, so I think it could improve the work efficiency to use saved filter settings.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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...

  7. 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.

  8. Search by Created Date and Modified Date

    When uploading a file by FTP, the Created Date and Modified Date on Details tab shows timestamp from the local PC.
    Box's search function only allows to search by Updated Date that is not the date from Modified Date from Details tab of a file, so please add the finction to search by Created Date and Modified Date for FTP uploaders.

    Possibly, 120 users could be affected by this function change because most of important files are in their local PCs, and it would be really helpful if they could search them by the dates that on their local PCs.

  9. Access to file link from search results

    When a search is executed in the browser, it is not possible to open a file in the search on another tab. The only option available seemingly is to open on the same tab. It is handy to manage the exploration through the search list to be able to either open a particular file or folder in the search list in a new tab, or copy the file link without having to create a share link to open file in a new tab.
    Thanks!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Search for keywords in File content and not only in file names

    Just like Explorer search, Box should be able to list PDF files that contain the keywoard in their content and not only in the File name.

    Example:
    If using Box to store CVs, Box should be able to list CVs that has a specific skill.

  15. Adding commas in tags

    We'd like to be able to add comma's in tags we apply files. For example, we'd like to place a tag for "1,250" on a file. Right now if we try that, it will show up as two tags, "1" and "250".

  16. 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.

    AS A Box User
    I WANT to be able to sort search results alphabetically (currently relevance and updated are the only sort options)

  18. Support infix (middle of the word) matching such as %ox%.

    It would be more efficient if infix matching is available for at least metadata search, or even just metadata search and folder/file name search.

  19. search spaces

    I have trouble with searching for file names with numbers.

    As an example: I have a folder called "AB123", and another called "AB 123".

    A search for "123" returns "AB 123"
    A search for "AB" returns both.

    I'd very much like it if "123" returned both.

    This example is from a macbook, using box through a chrome browser

    (The other option is to try to implement a new naming convention in my organisation - and get people to stick to it without a stray space or not messing it up! Taking the option for human error out would be far…

  20. Search API for Tags

    The Box search endpoint should be able to query based on Tags.

    The Web App is able to do this already:
    https://obfuscated.app.box.com/folder/0/search?tags=Select

    That search returns tagged results as expected.

    The postman API collection offers a search endpoint example with:
    https://{{api.box.com}}/2.0/search?query=sales

    An error occurs when changing that to:
    https://{{api.box.com}}/2.0/search?tags=Select

    This should more closely match the web ui.
