  1. A Tab/View That Shows All Uncompleted Tasks

    Is there a way to see an overview of all the tasks needing attention in one location? Either per user or in general from a manager level watching tasks assigned to specific team members.

  2. Stop interception of browser search shortcut in developer docs

    The box developer docs hijack CMD+F and that's exactly not what I expect it to do

    CMD+F is a shortcut for most (all?) browsers to bring up a native Find dialog, but your reference docs hijack it in favor of some type of auto-complete search on the page which is actually never what I want, or expect to happen.

  3. Add uploader role to box relay auto-start workflows

    When you auto-start based on someone uploading or saving to a directory, that workflow should take into account the person who did that - the uploader role. For instance, in a workflow that has a gather feedback and incorporate step, that should be automatically assigned to the uploader not the workflow owner. In general the workflow owner is not a very useful role - it's just the person who happened to write the template - the workflow owner may have no stake in the workflow instances whatsoever. The uploader is a natural role that is missing.

    We released the ability to assign any task to the “workflow starter”, the person who performed the file action.

  4. Reminders for past due tasks

    Adding a Due Date to a task gives a visual within the notification email & the activity slider. Could we add logic to this date where it will send out a reminder as past due and/or change the assignee’s name to red?

  5. Notarize the application for MacOS

    Box Drive seems to be notarized, however the Box Tools / Box Edit installer is currently not, so my system warns me that this is "an application downloaded from the internet".

    Currently you have to search for open assigned Task by checking your Notification folder or through the notification email as the assignee or by remembering the assigned file as the delegator. Could we have a “Task” folder that links us to all associated open Task as the delegator or assignee?

    This suggestion has been delivered and is generally available (GA).  You can find all open tasks assigned to you in the new Task Center. You can get to a list of all tasks you’ve ever been assigned (regardless of status), or all tasks you have assigned to someone else by clicking “View All Tasks” from the Task Center.

  7. Email Upload feature that uploads content of email, not just attachments

    Currently, with the way the Email Upload feature works, is it uploads attachments into the folder specified. Can we also add a feature where it give us the option to store the text content of the emails as well?

  8. Download view message could be improved.

    When users go to a shared link, the notice is "We're sorry, this file type is not currently supported". The phrase "not currently supported" is misleading and although there is download button below it, it causes a unnecessary ripple in the users minds as this information is processed. I suggest changing it to "We're sorry, you cannot view this type of file here, but you may download it." Also, it would be nice to have the file name in this message rather than at the top left-hand corner.

  13. Box Drive should be compatible with Hibun DLP

    Customers using security products Hibun DLP (https://www.hitachi-solutions.com/hibun/sp/) may see unexpected behavior with Box Drive. And Hibun doesn't have an exclusion mechanism. Therefore Box Drive should be compatible with Hibun DLP

  14. Add ability to pre-populate some metadata template values

    We'd like the ability to pre-populate some metadata template values. This way, users aren’t constantly re-typing (or constantly choosing from a drop-down menu) the same responses to attributes when applying metadata to a large number of files.

  16. Request File Marked Malicious Error in Box Web App UI and api

    Constant monitoring the "enterprise events adminlogs" for FILEMARKEDMALICIOUS events is not feasible for our application. Request is to add filemarkedmalicious error, similar to filesizelimitexceeded error, so that the user the can be instantly notified of potential problem at file upload time for best user experience.

    Instant notification is available today in our application, without this ability our users would see a degradation in their app experience.

  17. Send notifications to multiple emails

    We have a separate instance for managed external users. Because they have to create a dummy email for these externals, the email is not one that is able to receive notifications. They would like the ability to tack on working emails (without the unique email constraint) so that these users can still receive email notifications.

  20. Qs re: API and "is_external_collab_restricted" parameter

    I believe that the API allows for updating the "isexternalcollab_restricted" parameter. However, the API documentation and example does not illustrate this. Would you kindly update the documentation on this?

    If I'm wrong and adjusting this paramter via the API actually isn't possible, would it be possible to request this be available?
