  1. Sharing a Collection

    I understand that collections are meant to be a user specific setting, however, it would be great to have the ability to share a collection with a co-worker.

  2. We want the update date item shown in the file list to be the date and time of the update.

    In the order in which they appear on the file list screen, there is an item called "Updated".
    We would like this to include the "Date and Time" of the update, not just the "Date" of the update.

    Also, the most recently updated items will be listed as "today" or "yesterday" as the date of the update, but we would like to see this listed with the official date.

    ファイル一覧画面で表示される順番に、「更新日」という項目があります。
    これには、更新日の「日付」だけではなく、更新日の「日時」も含めて記載してほしいと思います。

    また、最近更新されたものは、更新日が「今日」「昨日」と表示されますが、これは正式な日付で表示してほしいです。

  3. Rename items and custom order in Collections

    Collections are great! Now the possibility to customize the display order as well as to rename items without affecting the actual folder/file name would be great additions

    Thanks for the feedback. Currently, collections are sorted by 1) Favorites and 2) personal Collections in alphabetical order. We do not have plans currently to allow renaming items or sorting order.

  4. View Tags in Collections

    The organization heavily uses tags to help with search and sorting. We'd like to have our Tags show on files folders/files when looking at a Collection

  5. My Collection folders to be kept open when opening another My Collection Folder

    Hi Team,

    A client has requested to be able to keep the My Collection folders open when they open another My Collection folder.

    Currently, when you select one of the folders in the left side menu, you can only open up one folder. When you select a new folder, it closes the previous one.
    It would be great if it is possible to keep the previous folders open unless the user wants to close it by clicking again.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    Thanks for the feedback. We have decided to allow only one expanded collections in the left side menu so we can maximize the performance of loading the left side menu.

  6. My Collection and Favorite to be independent on the Web

    Hi Team,

    The client requested that My Collection and Favorite to be independent from each other on the Web so that it is easier to see each folder inside.

    The client has an image something similar to what is now on the mobile app.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration!

  7. A Custom Collection Portal Page

    Business goal: The ability to share a visual customized page (like a web page) with various Box artifacts and other modules (described below) with peers, customers, team members, etc. Use cases:


    1. A project collaboration page

    2. Policies and procedures page

    3. Manuals and instruction page

    4. Product information site

    5. Business Development collaboration site

    6. Various

    Major Feature
    The ability to create a blank page and drop multiple "favorites" on the page. In essence, it is similar to sharing a "collection" of Box favorites, but a more visually appealing view. Other features of this custom portal page:


    1. Ability to filter the contents of the favorites…

  8. Collections Page as My Homepage

    So as designed, I think "My Collections page" is underutilized. Sure here is the only place you can edit/delete your collections and their titles...but this would be a wonderful place to drive users too as their homepage. Obviously, you all thought of that as well since it can be selected as "My Homepage" but right now I think a lot of folks won't want to because there isn't enough useful information on the basic page.

    Please allow the user to better configure this page or at least have the collections unfurled/unnested. So that each time they go to this page…

  9. collections folder is cumbersome and awkward, very hard to use

    My favorites randomly auto populate in the left margin when I open box. My work efficiency is greatly affected by having to click on the collections folder and wait for a new screen then dig through the page to find the bookmark favorite that I want. The "old way" of displaying my favorites had no issues and the order in which my favorites were organized worked well for me. Please find a way to revert back to my favorites always being displayed in the left margin.

  10. The ability to name the title of a collection

    I have a number of folders that were invited by external users (grey folders) and those folders are typically named such as "shared folder" and it is often difficult to identify which organization I am invited by. So I would like to organize those folders by naming when collection.

  11. Enable Collections for users in bulk via Admin Console

    We have a list of 100 people to enable Collections for, and we are not able to copy/paste email addresses or names in the admin console. The only way we can get it to work is to type out one name at a time. Do we really have to enter each of the 100 names? We need to enable this today.

    It'd be helpful to either allow copy and paste of multiple email addresses at once, or to allow some sort of csv upload method.

    Thanks for the feedback. This component was originally planned for customers to enable new features for a small group of users before rolling out to the all users. We will keep this in mind for the future, but unfortunately, we are unable to prioritize this against other priorities.
