  1. 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.

  2. Tables - need change the background color

    I think the table need to be change background color. Background color can use to make table header or important table cell.

  3. "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.

  4. Fix file/folder size, counts, dates and storage

    I'd like to preface this by saying that this is a bug that needs to be fixed, not an idea. Even so, Box suggested we post this here to get others to chime in and say that this should be fixed.

    This is a problem that's been around for at least 1.5 years.

    Often, when an account's folders and files are transferred to someone else, the account from which the data was transferred still shows something greater than 0 bytes owned. This becomes a problem for deleting that user, because we can't be sure if the transfer worked, and we…

    We are working on an improvement here that will correct these file/folder counts, dates within 24 hours and usually much faster, and plan to ship it later this year. This is the first of a few planned improvements.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. "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.

  8. Support AD Conditional Access with Microsoft Azure

    Please support AD Conditional Access with Microsoft Azure. It meets security requirements so easily.
    And it is compatible for third-party apps by configuring SAML settings.

    I think that is not easy to develop Azure cooperation feature, but I require that.

    This capability is partially available depending on the specifics on Conditional Access policies. At the moment we support it under the "Require device compliance" grant, and we aim to cover the "Require app protection policy" grant in upcoming quarters.


    We'd kindly appreciate to hear from you in case you are using any additional grant, as we understand the relevance of this capability for your security posture.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Improved project/task management

    Will be great to have some of the Dropbox paper features in Box notes.
    1. Improved checklists -- tagging people and having dates (must have)
    2. Ability to tag people within the note (great to have)
    3. Improved tables -- for ex sorting (nice to have)
    4. Creating timelines (nice to have)
    5. Adding media

  12. 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)

  13. Ability to have guest accounts

    We'd like to have guest Box account for external vendors. Vendors are not allowed to create free Box accounts by their policy. In order to collaborate with external vendors, we'd like to have guest Box account for our vendors.

  14. Rethink Box Notes as a Collaborative Tool

    Many of the comments about Box Notes, and the shortcomings that make them seem only marginally useful to me, arise from them being treated/implemented as something totally "other", compared to other file types that one might load into Box.

    Unlike other files, Box acts as if Notes all belong together rather than in the user's folder structure, and they have their own type of page or tab that is confusingly different from the standard Box interface, rather than simply opening up in an editing window if the user wants to make changes. An editing window would be much more intuitive,…

  16. Add notifications to Box for EMM

    In the Box Web browser, I can confirm that the new mention is on the left side menu "notifications" with red ● when new notifications appear. We'd like to have those notifications within Box for EMM too.

  19. Support External Users in Box Groups

    Currently only Managed Users can be added to Groups in Box.

    This request is to allow both Managed and (NEW) External Users to be added as members of Groups to easier bulk collaborator management.

  20. Slack: Show Preview of Box Files within Slack

    Currently, the Box + Slack integration auto-unfurls Box shared links that are posted into a DM/Channel in slack.

    The only Box file type that unfurls to a native (in-line) preview are image files (jpg, png, etc.).

    Slack has a native preview for a video file uploaded directly in Slack, but no preview for the same file when shared via Box.

    REQUEST: Add in the native (in-line) preview (that already exists for image files shared from Box) for many more common file types (Office files, PDFs, mp4s, etc.) -- possibly by leveraging the Box Preview API.
