  1. Copy file url

    From a folder, it is easy to create a copy a shared link, as when I hover over the file name, a button appears to the right of the file name. It would be great to be able to copy the file's direct url that easy (as opposed to the 'shared' link)

  2. Update the layout of My Collection

    Under My Collections, please change the layout of the toggle button that pops open Collections folders so that it's not the exact same size/shape/location/color as the "X" boxes on individual favorites. More than once, when a page loads slowly, I've gone to expand a Collection and accidentally hit an "X" and wiped out an important favorite from my sidebar!

  3. Add a "request to share with me" button to Box folders

    Lets say that a folder has Mary as the owner and Bob as the co-owner permissions wise. I would like a button that any other Box user can click on (for example a 'request permission' button) which when clicked, Mary and Bob will receive an email informing them that a user has requested viewer/editor rights for the folder (the user can select what permissions they are asking for). Mary or Bob can easily click an approve or a decline button from the email to grant or deny the access.

  4. Enable ability to hide files or folders in my All Files view

    Enable ability to hide files or folders in my All Files view.

    These files and folders would still be searchable via the search bar, but they would be hidden from All Files.

    Also include the ability to review all files and folders that I've previously hidden in a separate "Hidden" tab, similar to how there is a "Recents" tab and "Notes" tab.

  5. Improve UI for folder structure drop-downs

    I find it visually confusing that the drop-down carat for my Folders is the same size, color, and thin-stroked icon as the "X" which deletes my folders. I can't tell you how many times I've inadvertently deleted a Favorite because my brain is expecting a 2nd drop-down menu. Some differentiation in color, size, position, treatment, etc. might help.

  6. See folder MB/GB/TB size in the Size or "..." portion of my User Interface, rather than only the Details section

    See folder MB/GB/TB size in the Size or "..." portion of my User Interface, rather than only the Details section.

    Currently, the Details section is tucked away, and it is not intuitive.

  9. Ability to edit the way Box Looks

    Is box changing the way it looks constantly ? I don't like the changes and would prefer the choice to pick the way the program displays on my screen and would also like to rename my Favorite Tabs to what I want them to say not what the file name is.

  10. Change order of the buttons in web interface

    Putting the "Trash" and "Download" buttons right next to each other in the web interface is a recipe for disaster. About 5 times a day I accidentally click trash instead of download.

  12. Usability of action icon

    I am using box with google chrome. I always use action icon, dots right side of each file, to download a file, but I cannot select download when browser for box is fitted to main display of laptop because actions are pop-up to upside of a display and cannot be seen every actions.
    It is not happened if I see box with second display which is bigger than main one. It must be fixed.

  13. Add a RE-DO function to the UI

    I accidentally covered a file (A) with another one (B) when I was UPLOADing (B). I want to re-do that step but I cannot find a way to do that. I tried to get access to older version of that file to recover the old one but there was no older version record, It looks like I lose that file (A) permanently.

    I need your help to:
    (1) Recover the file (A)
    (2) Add a RE-DO function to the UI

    Thank you.

  14. Allow to keep original file name

    When a new version of a file is added, the name of the new file replaces the previous file name. We are doing a great effort to apply a naming convention to the department's folder and is a new Document Owner updates a version of a document, the convention is lost, or needs to be redone.

  15. Not a fan of the new main screen

    Hi - not a fan of the large blue column at the left - it now blocks when I try to do a print screen of files - I could open up a file and print screen the list within that file - now it blocks a good portion of the left side - so I can't see/print screen in formation.

  16. buttons move

    I like the look of the new UI, but I don't like how the download/delete/copy etc buttons change depending on what is selected. For example: if I select a single file or folder the download button is to the left of the buttons. If I select multiple items, the download is now on the right of the buttons. This has caused me to delete files accidentally because I'm trying to work fast.

  17. Tags shortcut removed in new UI

    I am requesting a feature that was already present in the old UI. I worked with support to determine that feature has been eliminated. There was a shortcut in the top right where you could quickly add tags. That feature is now gone in the new UI. Some of our users used that button heavily. Now we are forced to use the more options, or right click which is a couple more steps, each time the user wants to mark a file as read.

    Also, there was a button at the top that allowed you to move files to a…

  18. Menu Bar resizing

    The new menu bar is larger in width in the new UI when the size of the window is large enough to expand it. It would be nice to either have the "hamburger" menu button available all the time to shrink it, or the option to resize the column to what ever length chosen.
