  1. Ability to sort bookmarks with other files (e.g., alphabetically)

    Please allow links/bookmarks within folders to be sorted (e.g., alphabetically) and not stuck to the end of the list. This would make it easier to find items that are dated; I, for example, have all my items dated, and it's super inconvenient to have the bookmarks located separately/out of order within my folders.

  2. File Request URL Parameters

    It would be awesome to be able to pre-populate the metadata fields via URL parameters. This is particularly useful when sending the request to clients and wanting to make it as easy as possible for them to upload their documents. Some other functions along with that which would be nice are.

    1. Pre-fill metadata (all metadata types) from URL parameters
    2. Disable metadata field when it is pre-filled by URL
    3. Hide metadata field when it is pre-filled

    Thanks for the consideration.

  3. Sorting Files Uploaded By File Request

    A single file request collects multiple files which all end up in the same folder from many users. There is no automated way to sort this content e.g. In a case where 500 files are submitted. Can a method to automatically sort this be created e.g. upload zones sending content into separate sub-folders or Relay moving groups of content based on metadata into new folders created upon upload

  4. Difference upload

    I want a function or API that can upload only the difference in order to synchronize the local folder and the Box folder.

    ローカルフォルダとBoxフォルダを同期するために、差分のみアップロードできる機能やAPIが欲しい。

  5. Universal and Individual Upload Pause and Throttle

    Problem: I'm uploading a lot of relatively large files. The urgency for these is low, but it will take a long time to upload. During this time, I have smaller high priority files to send to a client for approval. However, uploading these smaller, but more important files using a different service is extremely slow. A 30 second upload becomes a 10-minute upload.

    Solution: Have individualized pause buttons on each uploading item AS WELL AS a universal pause on uploads. Also, a throttle to limit it from using all of the bandwidth would be nice, too. Please also make this…

  6. Provide API Access for file upload to the 'file request' URL. The existing file upload API does not provide a method for anonymous uploads

    Provide API Access for file upload to the 'file request' URL. The existing file upload API does not provide a method for anonymous uploads to a 'file request' link. Both the bearer token and folder id are not known and are not available within the URL.

    a possible solution would be to implement an 'OPTIONS' call to the URL to return a throw-away bearer token and the folder id so that the existing file upload API calls can be used.

  7. Make file description visible in the email notification

    When users upload data through the file request feature and enter in a file description, have that description display in the email notification that comes through.

  8. Request for improvement of mail upload function

    I found a problem with the current mail upload function, so I would like Box to improve it.

    [Request (1): Adding Management Console and Folder Settings]
    Users with Editor permission can change the settings of the folder's mail upload function.
    However, I would like to add the ability to restrict this permission to owners and co-owners to the administrative console and the settings for each folder.

    [Request (2) Timing for saving the settings of the mail upload function]
    If you click "Allow uploads to this folder via email" about the mail upload function of the folder, the URL for the…

  11. File upload restriction to ensure file name matches the folder name

    We would like to store files in the correct folder for each customer.
    What I want to say is that we have to accurately store files entrusted to us by our clients in the proper folders. However, this is done manually by a person, so it is possible to make a mistake but we are not allowed to make mistakes.

    Therefore, when storing files in a folder, we would like to establish a mechanism to block attempts to store files that do not match by having the file name and folder name match.
    Is this possible? If this is not possible,…

  12. Upload DICOM images via File request

    I was wondering if it would be possible to send someone a file request link and have them upload with the Ambra DICOM image tool directly instead of having them first upload the files then having to convert them manually after.

  13. Update Box File Request with additional functionality so that it can perform as a PBC request list similar to Suralink.

    Update Box File Request with additional functionality so that it can perform as a PBC request list similar to Suralink.

    E.g. add more fields, enable option so the File Request does not have to all be completed all at once, enable a dashboard for sender and receiver to see completion progress on the full File Request, enable ability for creator of file request to approve items on the file request and mark them complete, enable ability for sender and receiver to edit the File Request retroactively after submissions.

  14. Can't Use Buttons "Under" Green Update Box

    Please fix this annoying issue. Currently when I upload a document or rename something, a green update box pops up at the top of my screen. When that confirmation happens, I'm not able to click on anything to the direct left or right of it (i.e. my search bar, more options sometimes, etc.) until it goes away or I specifically click the 'x'. It's like everything is "behind" the update box, and it gets a bit annoying when I'm renaming or uploading several things.

    Ideally I'd like to be able to use the buttons/features to the left and right of…

  15. Integration with Shutterfly: Ability to send photos of build progression to Shutterfly

    I work for a swimming pool company. We are taking pictures as the pool is being built. Once the pool is completed, we would like to send 20 to 40 pictures, as a group, to Shutterfly to have them create a picture book for our customers.

  16. File size limits for File Request uploads

    We have tried using the File Request to encourage our supply chain to upload files directly to our filing system on Box instead of using unathorised file transfer services, however it frequently fails due to file size. I note in the FAQ that the maximum file upload size is limited by that permitted by the content submitter - it would be more useful if the file upload size was based by that permitted by our account as the organisation requesting the file. As the File Request service also doesn't permit uploading of folders, this often means our content submitters have…

  17. Increase upload limit for files in a folder

    For people like myself who have a large number of files that need to be categorized in appropriate folders it is imparative that I make uploading easy for my team members.

    Box only allows 500 files per folder, which I understand is to prevent many files being lost at the same time, which I am thankful for.
    BUT....
    It would be great that during the upload process that box.com automatically created another folder to accommodate any files over the 500 mark.

    Don't you think?

  18. Dynamic File Requests

    The ability to utilize File Request to send dynamic file requests. We often request multiple files from our clients. These requests can be 25+ items. It would be beneficial to send a list of required information where the client (external user) could could upload the requested file and the file would retain the name of the item on the original list.

    The ability for external users (those with the file request) to see what items on the request list have been fulfilled and which items are still outstanding would be ideal.

    It would also be extremely helpful to be able…

  19. Max_Upload_Size Field Needs a Box CLI Switch for User Record Updating

    Each user now has the maxuploadsize field in their user record, which designates the largest single file size that a user can upload. This setting can be viewed in the user's profile in the WebUI and is set as an Enterprise level setting.

    Just as the user's spaceamount (their quota) can be set via the Box CLI, using the --disk-space switch when updating a user's record, there is a need to be able to access a switch to set maxupload_size when updating individual user records via the Box CLI.
