  1. Drop downs to accomodate for State, Country and Currency

    Retail use case where we would like to be able to apply metadata to a store such as state and country. Ideally have a drop down list of the 50 states to easily choose from and have a consistent format instead of having using type it in.
    Finance and Retail use case to be able to apply metadata for a dollar amount and ideally have a currently drop down that include USD $

  2. If we make changes to the metadata template, the changes should be reflected in the metadata of the created file request link.

    If we make changes to the metadata template, the changes should be reflected in the metadata of the created file request link.

    When changing the item name of a metadata template or the display order of text item choices,The changes are not reflected in the configured file request screen.
    When the number of file request settings is large, the metadata templates need to be changed manually one by one when there is a change in the metadata template. This is a burden on workers and leads to a decrease in operational efficiency.

    メタデータテンプレートに変更を加えた際に作成済みのファイルリクエストリンク内のメタデータにも変更を反映して欲しい

    メタデータテンプレートの項目名変更や、テキスト項目の選択肢の表示順を変更した際、設定済のファイルリクエストの画面に変更内容が反映されません。
    ファイルリクエストの設定件数が多い場合、メタデータテンプレートに変更があった際に1つずつ手動で変更が必要なため作業者の負担となり業務効率の低下に繋がります。

  3. HASANY/HASALL implementation of metadata queries / メタデータクエリのHASANY/HASALLの実装

    I would like to implement HASANY/HASALL for metadata queries.
    We have implemented it in the released functionality with reference to the Metadata Query Toolkit, but suddenly it is no longer available and we are having trouble. The answer was that there is no alternative.

  4. Apply Classification labels on multiple items

    It's not currently possible to select multiple files or folders and classify them all at once. We have to click the More Options button on each item to apply the labels one-by-one. I need to apply classifications to about 40-50 existing folders so I'll have to do them individually. Please consider allowing us to click the checkboxes next to multiple items and then show the classify option under More Options, or add a button alongside there next to the Move/Copy, Collections, Trash buttons, etc.

    Update: I discovered that you can use a Box Relay workflow using a Manual Start trigger…

  5. Metadata template creation - option to duplicate metadata template, then edit

    A lot of the metadata templates will have similar fields, so ideally you could duplicate an existing metadata template, then make edits from there rather than just having the option to start new each time.

  6. Metadata in reports

    I would greatly appreciate it if you could assist me in creating a report for the documents within the folder. My goal is to see all the metadata associated with each of the files uploaded to that particular folder. Your help in this matter would be truly valuable.

  8. Metadata additonal column

    Adding metadata as an additional column into Box interface which is similar to Tags can help to check the status.

    The User activity report should have option to pull the report for who add/edit status in the report and should have what the collaborators tried to add.

    The user activity report should have ability to get the Tags Add/Edit from the report.

  9. Metadata Instance Update - Remove when no value should not fail

    When Updating a metadata instance to remove a value from a specific instance, currently today the API fails if the field has no value.

    I would like to propose that if the field had a value it is removed, and if it doesn't - then just ignore the operation. Similar to what add does if the field already has a value, it just silently replaces it.

    As an option, in case others are relying on the failure, maybe add a new operation "forceRemove" so that if there is no value, the code will just ignore it and continue with the…

  10. Metadata export with file upon download

    We use box widget on our website for file upload. We have a metadata form/template that gets filled out, however outside of box there is no way we can use that data. We are looking to automate some process's it would be nice if the information that is filled out could be extracted with the uploaded pdf file upon download. Once the pdf has been downloaded the metadata that goes with the file is gone. I'm told that this isn't possible currently with box. Hopefully some consideration on how box can be used in automation process outside of its own…

  11. Improving metadata input experience from file request links

    The operability of the metadata amount and date input fields should be improved.
    Currently, after entering a numeric value, the input value changes unless the user selects a blank space on the screen or moves to the next item, which does not seem to be a common operability.
    For example, entering 1000 in the metadata amount field from the request link and then entering the next item without selecting a blank space on the screen or moving to the next item will cause the amount value to change to 999.

  13. Increase metadata field API limit from 3 fields to 5+ or more

    Currently, when searching for content using the API, you aren't able to receive results for more than 3 specified metadata fields in the query. If you search for content with fields A, B, C, D, you will only see results for A, B, C. This scale limitation impacts organizations that heavily rely on metadata for use cases at scale.

  14. New Metadata Types that Reference Files, Folders, Users, and Groups

    Provide the capability to store and manage a relationship as metadata. This would allow you to model peer and parent-child relationships between Files, Folders, Users, and Groups. This would store the unique id for the Box object and provide a user experience that would allow you to navigate to each item by clicking on the metadata value.

  16. Allow "date uploaded" / "date triggered" as metadata fields

    Even though a file already has the date it was uploaded and modified attached to it, it would be useful to capture a date automatically like this in the same area where user-submitted metadata appears.

    I would like a field in metadata templates and Relay similar to the date picker except that it only stamps the current date, so a file request could come in with metadata such as a user-entered email address and the date uploaded, without any chance of the user having picked a different date.

    We need to download files and have their metadata visible, so we…

  17. Add metadata to multiple files (without using a folder cascade)

    I was wondering if it would be possible to add the possibility to add metadata to different pictures/files at the same time. We know it's possible to add meta data to a whole folder, but we would like the same to be possible for a selection of pictures within a folder. It is possible to add tags in this way, but not meta data.

  18. Ability to read the EXIF data in the photos that are uploaded

    I need Box to read the EXIF data in the photos I upload. Having access to that would make categorizing and finding assets infinitely easier. If I could sort by the metadata already included with an image file I would be able to find by date, location, resolution, etc automatically. A default metadata template should be created that matches that of EXIF data so that it automatically loads. You could then find the images you want by searching the EXIF data then could apply other metadata to add more relevance.

  19. Download with Metadata

    I would like the option to download a file with its metadata added as a cover page.

    It wouldn't need to be formatted nicely, just anything that keeps the metadata easy to see once the file is downloaded.

  20. Use Metadata Fields to Rename Files

    In Relay, under the Rename outcome, I would like to be able to use fields from a metadata template as pieces to rename the file (and have (2) etc. added to the end of a file name in the case that duplicate names are generated like Windows does).

    If a metadata template is part of a file request for a given folder, then I would like the option to use its fields to rename files through a workflow that is trigged when a file is uploaded. For example, when file is uploaded, rename uploaded file to "Submission by 'metadata-first-name' 'metadata-email-address'".
