  1. File request link and folder metadata in Box embed framework

    Please expose file request link and folder metadata in Box embed framework that is leveraged in the Salesforce integration. This allows Salesforce users to have additional differentiation beyond what salesforce has and would open up our CCM use cases for onboarding as well as some records management.

  2. Upload Completion Notification

    I love how I am notified when a set of files are uploaded into a specific folder but I am having one very key issue. I will receive the notification upon upload, but many times because it is 10+ large images, the images are not done uploading. I will review the folder but be unaware that the Upload is not complete. I may see 5 images with 5 still uploading.

    Is there a way Box could show us of upload progress? OR possibly send a second notification when the upload is complete?

    Thank you for the feedback. Can you please provide more details on the specifics of when you’re encountering this issue? Are you having problems related to status for a file request submission? Or regular file/folder uploads? Any information you can provide (including which application you are using) would be very helpful as we research potential soluitions.

  3. File Request - Display Icon on Folders with File Request Enabled

    On the website, much like the icons on/next to folders for Shared Links, Descriptions, or Sync To Desktop, it would be nice to have an icon for folders that have the File Request feature enabled on them. It would greatly assist with being able to easily identify folders that have the feature enabled at first glance. Thank you.

    Thank you for this feedback! We are actively exploring options to both indicate when a File Request is active on a folder, as well as when a file submission came in through a File Request. We should have a more comprehensive update in 1-2 quarters after we update the core feature/functionality in Q1 and Q2. Thanks!

  4. Reduce file sizes with BOX capture

    Please fix the BOX Capture app to reduce file sizes. It is impossible to work from home given how large of files are (they timeout during upload, they are impossible to transfer to DocuSign given the file size, etc.). Even when I change file size to "Small" under settings, the files are huge. I do not have this issue with other scanning apps, however, we have to use BOX Capture for work.

  5. Make API rate limits more sophisticated, especially for large enterprises

    When working with a Box Enterprise that has tens of thousands of users, scripts designed to do things like user information syncing, group syncing, or user provisioning/deprovisioning often run into real issues with the Box API rate limits.

    Some calls (e.g. downloading or uploading a file) are clearly significantly more resource-intensive than others (e.g. getting a user’s aliases). The method Google has implemented for the Gmail API (see https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/v1/reference/quota) seems like a really great way to balance the need to protect the back-end systems against the need for increased performance for less-intensive calls. It would be nice if Box…

    Thanks for your patience and feedback, Ian.

    I am curious to hear if we were to implement something like what Google has, which endpoints would you expect to see higher rate limits around?

    Also, would you mind sharing some more details around the frequency of the API calls your processes are making right now, and any approximations around what rate limits would suffice for you?

    Thank you!

  6. View versions of documents on ipad ios device

    Currently there is no option to view previous versions and audit history on a mobile device, would be good for those that work entirely off an ipad and not a pc to be able to do this.

  7. Add column for Modified date, and allow sorting on it.

    It would be really handy to be able to add a column for and sort based on "Modified date" field. Currently the "Updated" column is not useful if you are doing content migrations from outside sources. While the files maintain the "modified date", they get an "Updated date" of the day it was migrated.

    We are considering migrating our existing LAN contents to Box. Our users frequently need to sort on last modified date. We are uploading all data to Box and retaining the original date stamps where possible. Sorting is key.

  8. Allow edit access on shared links

    Currently, we can choose the access permissions for shared links. However, we want a way to grant edit permission after accessing the link. (Not through the way of adding a collaborator and then sending a shared link to invited people)

    We would like to request that you consider adding the edit permission which we can set for shared links
    in your future release.

    It is very difficult for us when we want to edit files for multiple people temporarily because we have to create a dedicated area and assign the permissions every time.

    It would also be very helpful if…

  9. Search function included in the Copy or Move option for ipad

    User on ipad report not seeing the option to search for files on the move or copy options like they do in web app. Makes it difficult to move files to destination by going through the file tree list.

  13. Add a threaded ‘Reply’ button to comments and @mentions

    When you are @mentioned, replying to the sender with @mention requires many clicks. It would be simpler to be able to reply to the sender in one click (i.e. add a comment with sender already @mentioned)

  14. Quarantined files indicator for Box mobile app

    Quarantined files currently show a red exclamation indicator icon + tooltip “This file is under quarantine” on webapp, but NOT on mobile.

    This is an issue for users (especially external collaborators) who will try to access these quarantined files on mobile, but not understand why they can’t access it.

  16. New PowerPoint, Excel, Word from mobile

    When on the app, it would be helpful to have the option to create a new PowerPoint, Excel, Word doc. It is a bit confusing to tell the user they have to open the Word app first and save it to the Box mobile app when you don't need to do that from the web experience.

  17. Subject Access Request reporting

    UK users need to be able to provide Subject Access Reporting (by law). Everyone is entitled to a copy of their data held in the system.

    Box needs to be able to report on that. Search (content and/or metadata) will provide the results, but we need a list of this content in a report as well as the ability to download all this content in a zip file.

    See specific GDPR requirements here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organizations/guide-to-data-protection/principle-6-rights/subject-access-request/

  19. Allow admins to report on activity of external collaborators.

    We want to report on external collaborator usage of our specific content for a number of reasons:

    1) to be able to access if their external collaborators are no longer using our data and should be removed

    2) to help us understand how their internal users are working with people outside of the enterprise.

    Right now, the reporting is limited to showing when people have accepted folders, or users can go to access stats - neither of these options is sufficient.

    Ability to see activity of external Collaborators.
    a. Downloads, uploads, previews, edits, etc.
    b. We can see my managed…
