  1. Stop disabling access to content when its owner account is deactivated.

    If content owner's account is disabled, any collaborators lose access to said content. A different workflow needs to be put into place to allow these collaborators access to content previously shared with them.

    Either automatically transfer ownership to a co-owner or when the original owner account is being suspended, add options for preserving access to other collaborators.

  2. Prevent users to change their own permission level

    Prevent users to cange their own permission level in order to avoid "downgrading" the permission from Co-Owner to Viewer (for example) just for yourself.

    Or not allowing a user to remove himself/herself from a folder.

  3. Increase the 10,000 Limit for Groups

    Currently if you create more than 10,000 groups, the groups at the bottom of the list alphabetically cannot be searched for when creating a collaboration.

  4. External collaborator redundant expiration notice

    If a Box folder is created in one Box org. and external collaborators are added, they’re already set to expire depending on the rules.

    If you move the folder to another org., and the new org has the same domain as the added collaborators that were set to expire, they still get the expiration notice, even though they shouldn’t expire because the new org. matches the added collaborators.

  5. Sharing Content to Alternate Email Address

    Currently when sharing content via email address, if the address used is a secondary email on their account, the UX is to show that the email address is for an external user, rather than a user in your box tenant. Additionally, the full name of the user does not resolve, leading users to believe that the address they selected is inaccurate.

    All alternate email addresses should be treated as searchable attributes that bring up the user profile rather than just the primary.

  6. Extend expiration dates to be shown in their user activity reports

    For external collaborations, it shows the date the collaboration is going to end when it's first set in the user activity to report as
    -Action: Collaboration expiration
    -Details: To: YYYY-MM-DD

    However when you extend this period, the "To: YYYY-MM-DD" isn't displayed so you don't know until when it's extended until unless you go the individual folder/file itself and look at the "clock" mark manually.
    In the report
    -Action: Extend collaborator expiration
    -Details: [Blank]

    The customer wants to have a grasp of each expiration dates so they're saying looking at each item manually on Box is impractical.
    They would like the…

  7. API: "email_alias" Is it possible to register other than the same domain?

    API: "email_alias" Is it possible to register other than the same domain?

    At this time, if you disable it until the email address is confirmed with
    the same specifications as when registering from the UI,
    I think that you can prevent misuse.

    Example)
    Suppose a customer wants to give a user two email addresses in different
    domains before the company integrates.

    This specification allows administrators to bulk register using
    the API without user effort.

  8. whitelist external users for File Request Link

    In business you frequently work with external partners or agencies and need to have the ability for those entities to manage a File Request Link. Limiting the File Request Link to just managed users limits the collaboration ability of the business needs.

  9. Specific Access to subfolders in the same Folder

    Is it possible to give to users view permission only to specific subfolders within a folder? Example: I want to upload to a master folder 5 subfolders to our daughter company partners and I want to make sure that the 3 subfolders out of the 5 of them will be viewed only from their bosses. This flexibility helps you to avoid creating 2 different folders for the same Task-Subject.

    We need to be able to assign co-admin roles to Box group and have these groups sync with our active directory.

  12. Box settings fail to provide needed permissions for those who upload data.

    Box settings (limitations) in connection with Anderson Business Advisors are very frustrating. Uploader's should be able to edit what they upload. I have complained about this for two years. The impact is that garbage is scattered all over the site because I can't property rename or reposition files. This causes further confusion and extra communications with Anderson employees. I'm becoming incredulous about this - it seems like such a simple expectation to be able to rename a folder, or move a simply file into a folder after it has been uploaded. Please provide this simply capability ASAP.

  13. Automatically generated user report emails

  14. Keep Cost Center Field populated when user invited as a Managed user

    If creating an account and you have to send the user an Invite to come over as a managed user, the Cost Center field (If filled out) will not stay after the user accepts the invite. Forcing you to have to go back and re-add info you may have already included.

    I would request that if the Cost Center field is populated on a user creation, that it remain after an invited user accepts their invite to stop double work.

  16. Bulk invitation

    We have multiple clients that we give access to several folders. I'd like to be able to send a single collaboration invitation, rather than inundating their mail with multiple invitations.

  17. Need to be able to view group members before adding to a folder

    Would be great to be able to see members of a group prior to adding them to a folder. At the moment, even those groups which are listed as being viewable by anyone in the company can't be viewed until AFTER they are added to a folder, unless someone is a group admin. It means that either someone has to contact an admin to be sure they have the right group, or they have to add the group and then check right away to make sure they added the right one.

  18. Add second Box user name filed

    There is First and Last name filed available now when Admin create Box user. When customer integrated with SSO in Japanese, active directory name will be used. However, some Box user will communicate with oversea members, they like to use English name, not Japanese name which synced with Active Directory. So, please add additional filed for user name.

  19. Ability to have guest accounts

    We'd like to have guest Box account for external vendors. Vendors are not allowed to create free Box accounts by their policy. In order to collaborate with external vendors, we'd like to have guest Box account for our vendors.

  20. Eliminate confirmation email for manually created or provisioned accounts

    We feel that the confirmation email step should not be utilized with accounts that are manually created in the portal or that are auto provisioned from AD. When we create a new account, there is a "delay" with the new email address being propagated and established in our third-party cloud-based email security system. This causes the new email to be added to the hard bounce list at Box due to the email address not being valid (yet). We understand the need for a confirmation email when it comes to an individual user signing up, but if an account is created…
