  1. Increase size of left-side menu on Home screen

    The left-side menu on the Home screen is too narrow and cuts off the names of folders/files saved under My Collections/Favorites.

    Users should be able to set whatever width is needed for the menu.

  2. 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

  3. 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. I want the ability to add comments to the version history

    Now in the version history you will find the version number (for example: V1,V2...) is currently listed in the version history, the version number (for example: V1, V2...).
    We check the contents of V1, V2... in the preview and restore the version.

    However, as the number of versions increases, it is difficult to find the exact version you need, so please add the ability to add a simple note in addition to the version number.

    【日本語】------------------------------------------------------------
    現在バージョン履歴では、バージョンナンバー(for example:V1,V2...)が記載されています。
    私たちは、V1、V2...の内容をプレビューで都度確認し、バージョンを復元しています。

    しかし、バージョン数が多くなってくると、必要なバージョンを的確に見つけるのは難しいため、バージョン番号のほかに簡易なメモを併記できる機能を追加してください。

  5. Playback Speed on Mobile for Videos

    I would like to play video contents with double speed in the mobile app's preview mode.
    Currently you can change the speed of the video on web but it is not possible on mobile.
    It would be great if you can add the playback speed (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) on mobile too.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  7. Run User Activity Report with API

    We would like to be able to run User Activity Report through the API.
    Users, groups and affected folders/files can be selected as a filter to export/run this report against. But today, keyboard typings and mouse clicks are required to select each filtering, which would be unrealistic to specify tens or hundreds of users, groups, folders and/or files.
    Thus, We would need API to utilize/filter User Activity Report at scale.

  8. cache Box Drive

    Refresh function in Box Drive

    Currently, it is necessary to logout/login to clear the cache and errors, but this is troublesome.
    I would like to be able to do this with the touch of a button.
    This is expected to improve the efficiency of our business.

    Box Driveのリフレッシュ機能

    現状ではログアウト/ログインしてキャッシュやエラーをクリアする必要がありますが、これが面倒です。
    これをボタン一つでできるようにしてほしいです。
    これにより業務の効率化が期待できます。

  9. Box for Teams v2: Bunch of files will be shown when the files has shared in direct chat

    When the files has shared in the direct chat, it will be uploaded in "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder on sender side, on the other hand, for the receiver side, files will be listed in the top directory, which leads to list bunch of files in the top directory.

    It would be nice, if the new folder will be created for the each chat under "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder and add collaboration for the folder when the direct chat has started.

  10. Support more preview fonts

    Zinc Group uses fonts that are currently not supported for Box web UI preview, Klavika and Stag. Since these fonts are used extensively in the company's approved document templates, they wish to have them added to the list of supported fonts for preview.

    There isn't a way yet to see how and when the setting was changed. We're trying to know is who and when and how did the Collaboration and Privacy settings change on Admin Console User Activity reports.

  14. About the uppercase / lowercase letters of email address at the time of invitation

    ■Request
    I would like to set an account to be recognized as a registered account regardless of uppercase / lowercase letters of the email address.

    ■Background
    When specifying a collaborator, if I specify a managed user whose email address contains uppercase letters, in lowercase letters only (or vice versa), the globe icon may be displayed (= displayed as an unmanaged user).

    In the Collaborator list after the collaboration is completed, it is automatically corrected on the Box side, and the globe icon does not appear.
    However, by displaying a globe mark when specifying a collaborator, it may cause confusion that…

  15. 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.

  16. cascade

    Box needs to add the cascade option to all Relay triggers to catch activity in underlying subfolders. The alternative is having to create several relay workflows that is too cumbersome to manage and doesn't scale.

  18. 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

  19. Control managed user external collaboration to webmail accounts

    Setting that allows admin of corporate instance to control/limit managed users being collaborated into personal Box webmail accounts. This would be a setting to control/limit an outside Box webmail user collaborating a corporate managed user into its personal account.

  20. Block single user

    Our security has deemed a single email as suspicious. We would like to block this single email from connecting to our Box, or being collaborated into our Box.

    With Shield we can block the whole domain, but that approach is too broad and would limit too many valid email addresses.
