  1. Remove Collaborator Access Policy Security Control in Shield

    When creating an access policy in Shield, there needs to be a security control that removes a collaborator after a specific period of time or on a specific date. It would work very similar to the "Invited Collaborators Expiration Settings" option that is available in the Admin Console under the Content and Sharing tab, but would be tied to a classification setting.

  2. Allow default to full screen view on iPad horizontal view (like portrait view)

    I like to view box in full screen and because I use landscape view often, I have to hit the double arrow every time I go to a page. In portrait view it automatically goes to full screen view. I'd like an option to automatically go to full screen in landscape.

  3. Box Notes and Collections

    The Box Notes interface, at the moment, only works with Favourites. It'll be great if you could choose a collection to put your Box Note into, directly from the Box Notes interface, as opposed to having to navigate to the Box folder where the note is, then select the collection.

  4. When we open a PDF with the Box app (Box for EMM) on iPad, the Activity column appears on the right side of the screen.

    When we open a PDF with the Box app (Box for EMM) on iPad, the Activity column appears on the right side of the screen.
    It takes a lot of work to maximize this PDF, as you have to make one click each time.
    We would like to prevent Activity from being displayed by default when previewing a PDF.

    If we use our iPad vertically, Activity will not be displayed, but it is assumed that we will use it horizontally.

  5. Box for iOS shows activity bar as default onscreen

    When using box, the activity and comment tab is always showing onscreen. I must hit the full screen tab each time I open a new document. This should be defaulted to full screen, and a selectable feature to show comments, not the other way around imo.

  6. There should be a way to copy or clone File Request form templates to new directories instead of resetting to the default template.

    Our department is using File Request links on our Box Enterprise account to provide donors with a simple submission form to upload digital materials for our collections.

    We would like to set up one folder for each potential donor who will be submitting digital collections for us to review and process. (This will make it much easier for us to manage submissions, to review them for security, and to track them for procesing.) However, we also need to customize the File Request submission form for directories to include a standard boilerplate of instructions and to request a description of the…

  7. "Smart Access: Download restriction" for G-Suite

    We want "Smart Access: Download restriction" to control the download/printing capability of G-Suite apps. We want the integration just like office online which restrict download/print on office online apps.

    For security perspective, we want to minimize the risk of data breach, so we are planning to store the confidential files on box and restrict the content to be downloaded to the devices. However currently if user opened the files on G-Suite, the files can be downloaded or printed.

  8. Allow configuration of permissions to apply and change each classification created

    To apply or change a classification, select "Owners/co-owners and editors" in the classification settings, and then click Users with editorial privileges or higher can apply and change the classifications.
    However, by implementing a feature that allows configuration of permissions to apply and change each classification created, the Security can be enhanced.

  9. Display Shield classification labels by default beside the name of each item in a folder

    When viewing the contents of a folder, it would be beneficial to the user experience to see which items are classified and how without needing to select the item or attempt to preview it.

  10. Device Trust Whitelisting

    Provide ability to whitelist devices while Device Trust is enabled. We would like to enable Device Trust requiring both Domain and Certificate. But we also have lab hosts that are not domain members or have issued certificates. We would like to be able to allow hosts not meeting the Device Trust settings to login.

  11. Edit Box files directly in Teams

    When files are stored directly inside of Teams, you can click on these files and “Edit in Teams” directly. If you click on files sourced from Box, however, you get an ugly preview of the file and have to navigate to Box in order to make edits, which is a clunky experience.

    Doing this will require Box to inherit sharing rules as defined in Teams. In other words, I should be allowed to at least view if not edit files shared with me in Teams, even if I don't have access to the underlying folder in Box. Perhaps it could…

  12. Drive: Notifications when there is simultaneous editing happening

    When multiple people are simultaneously editing in Drive multiple versions save as different copies. There should be notifications so people don't have to lock files to let others know they are editing a document.

  13. When I click on a photo in Browse mode to bring it full frame, by default a side panel comes up labeled "Activity." i

    I am running v.5.1.4 IOS for ipad. When I click on a photo in Browse mode to bring it full frame, by default a side panel comes up labeled "Activity." This is very annoying, as I constantly have to click on the photo to make it full frame and eliminate the side panel. My suggestion: this should be a user option, rather than a default that cannot be changed. Most users do not use this Activity feature; why is it the default setting? This is a change on this new version 5.1.4. Please fix this on the next version.

  14. Send Box notifications to a Slack channel

    We've been expanding the use of Slack in our organization and trying to encourage people to reduce the use of email. Ideally, we would like to see the ability to have Box notifications get sent directly to a Slack channel, so people don't have to keep going back to email.

  15. Box Relay variable support

    Could we have a variable for approvers Instead of harcoding them to a relay?

    For example, if a document contained a metadata field for approver and it was populated with a user, could we use that metadata as a variable for the approval step of the relay workflow?

  16. "File Request Link" report similar to the "Shared Link" report

    Would like Org level report on what folders have "File Request Links" very similar to the "Shared Link" report. We need to report on what folders are shared publicly.

  17. bulk manage Shared Links

    Provide a way for all shared links in an account to have their permission levels / access levels / expiry dates modified in bulk, rather than having to change each one individually which is extremely time consuming for large doc sets.

  18. iPhone default preview mode

    With the recent iOS app update, all PDF’s when previewed in Landscape mode display the “activity” screen on the right hand side by default. This is an unwanted feature and I would prefer defaults to show the "activity" screen collapsed.

  19. In App PDF reader changes make the app frustrating to use

    Recently the UI for the PDF reader changed. I use Box primarily to read review copies of comic books, which DC Comics only make available to view in the app. Until recently this worked fine on my iPad, displaying the full page as I flipped through. I even liked the page flip of the interface enough that I upload other review copies to read them in the app. About three weeks ago, something in the UI changed, and now it no longer displays the full page, and I have to scroll on each page to read the whole thing. In…

  20. Email Address Lists Shield

    To support ethical walls, it would be advantageous to be able to create lists of email addresses for different teams within the same company so that collaboration and shared link access can be restricted. Example for private side, public side employees within an investment bank content could be classified for each with access controls in place to prevent sharing and collaboration.
