  1. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  2. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  4. Preview files about xdw, xbd and xct in Box for iOS.

    Please support xdw, xbd and xct files in Box for iOS.

    Box for iOS can preview files supported by Box, such as PDF.
    However, Box for iOS can not preview xdw, xbd and xct files (*1) for the following reasons.

    DocuWorks Viewer Light (iOS) (*2) implements Quick Look Preview Extension.
    Thus, an app can preview xdw, xbd and xct files if the app implements QLPreviewController.
    Although Box for iOS has already implemented QLPreviewController, previewing xdw, xbd and xct files are not supported by Box.

    a) DocuWorks Document
    extension : xdw
    MIME type : application/vnd.fujixerox.docuworks
    b) DocuWorks Binder

  6. Box for Teams Integration for Private Channels

    Today, Box for Teams Integration does not support Private Channels.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044673394-Box-for-Teams-FAQ

    Many customers are using Private Channels and need full integration between Box and Microsoft Teams. We do want Microsoft and Box to work together to improve it.

  7. Allow the "User Activity" report to be run for a folder and all sub-folders & content within that folder

    Today, the admin may select to run the "User Activity" report for a particular folder. When run for a particular folder, the report will only filter on the contents of the selected folder, and not the contents of subfolders within. Request that the report includes the folder and all sub-folders & contents within that folder, removing the need to run the report at the enterprise level and filtering to a particular folder path from there.

  8. Box Drive (Windows) - Remember folder view settings

    We’ve been using Box Drive since launch, and it’s been an incredible improvement in our workflow. Only a small issue has made it notably less useful in saving time, and is a known issue documented here (community.box.com/t5/Box-Drive-Known-Issues..)

    Our file name and directory lengths are wider than the default for Box Drive/Windows. Normally Windows remembers preferences around column width, but in this case, as you know, Box Drive does not. This causes us to have to manually resize the “Name” field in every folder/directory, every time we access one. Therefore each user is having to do this perhaps dozens of times…

  9. Relay lite: allow admin to change the workflow owner

    Box Relay creates a workflow (Folder creates a task that requests invoice processing and is used to manage outstanding tasks) that enables clerical employees to process invoices more efficiently. However, when the employee is transferred, the workflow that has been created is not transferred to the next person in charge. If a useful workflow can be managed as a company, not as an individual (Change the workflow owner for contact changes), it will be very useful for business efficiency.

  10. filter the activity report with specific classification

    We want to get the activity reports for specific classification(just like specifying the folder).

    We need to audit user activities for confidential files every quarter. Current activity reports can only specify the user, date, folder and action, not classification.

  12. box drive sync progress

    When syncing large amounts of data or many items into Box, I don't have a number of items remaining unless I try to log out of Box drive while it is uploading. Could we take that information and put it into the Box Drive icon like it was displayed in Box Sync?

  13. Changes to workflow builder functionality

    Create changes to workflow builder functionality:
    1. Allow folder Editors to be able to build workflows (we have very few co-admins)
    2. Allow the workflow builder to specify who is assigning the task (or make it generic.) Just because Bob builds the workflow doesn't mean his name should be on the assigning task.

  14. Add fixed-width font options

    Ticket # INC4849532 - Customer wants to use Box Notes to write documents that contain code-snippets and excerpts from logs. They would like to use a fixed-width font for these snippets, but Box Notes doesn't allow them to select font and there's no style for fixed-width.

    The issue is the same as the one described in this forum post: https://community.box.com/t5/Web-App-Forum/Boxnote-fixed-width-font/td-p/31194

  15. Allow users to share built workflows

    Allow workflow builders to share their workflows with each other. Currently workflows need to be rebuilt by each user whereas it would save a lot of time to be able to share these workflows that have already been built.

  16. Notification when someone is editing a file

    Since we don't have an option to check-in/check-out of files, can you add a feature like Dropbox's badge which alerts a user when someone else is editing a file so we prevent any simultaneous version history/editing issues?

  17. Create a Task to provide a notification

    Create a Task to provide a notification to a user. For example if a document has been moved, this Task would create a notification to Bob that the file has been moved. He shouldn't have to do anything with this or approve or complete it, just be notified.

  19. Create Relay Tasks based on dates defined in metadata

    We would like to create tasks based on dates that have been assigned to the document through metadata. For example a task would be created on September 20 if that date was specified in metadata. We have several scenarios where documents "expire" and we need to renew them. These dates are variable based on when the original document is loaded into Box.
