  3. Improve Box Drive memory usage

    Box recommend 4GB of RAM as minimum system specifications. But 4GB of RAM is not enough since Box Drive tends to use more than 1GB memory when a user open folder which has a lot of items. Therefore the fetching function should be improved to run efficiently on 4GB of RAM

    We are always striving to make improvements here. There won’t be one release were we resolve this issue though. Instead, there will be trying to make incremental improvements in all Box Drive releases.

    This feature was delivered for Windows in Box Drive v2.25!
    Users can now quickly preview of files in Explorer and Box Drive search without having to open these files. 


    This feature is under consideration for macOS devices.

  5. 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/

    We are considering whether and how to move more operations in region.


    We do not currently plan to move metadata, description or comments in region in the next few years.

  8. Show full path in results when searching for content across the enterprise

    For search results of files/folders are returned for longer folder paths (e.g. think 10 sub folders deep), the folder path in the UI is truncated to only show 3-4 folders deep so it does not display higher level folder or even the root folder of the structure. This makes content discovery within the folder owner's count much more difficult. Click on the results only bring your to the item in Content Manager and still doesn't give you the path information. A solution would be to have the option to click a more info option which displays the full folder path…

  11. Expose Favorites in Box Drive

    Favorites are becoming more and more popular now that they're better exposed (in the left rail) in the new Web App.

    As such, users expect to access their Favorites list regardless of which endpoint they're using - webapp (supported), mobile (supported), or desktop (not supported via Sync or Box for Desktop).

    REQUEST: Add a 'Favorites' view to Box for Desktop content (somehow) that allows the user to view only their Favorites (files + folders) just like they do in the webapp.

  13. Folder-Level Activity Reporting: Ability to Report on Activity and Access Stats at the Folder Level

    Add an 'export' option available for folder Owners & Co-Owners to export various items at the folder level (meaning in the webapp - not the Admin Console) for

    --Activity (uploads, download, moves, previews, create shared link, invite collaborators, etc.) in the folder
    --Collaborations
    --Etc.

    This suggestion is under consideration by the Product Team for future development, however, it is not on our roadmap. Please share additional feedback and use cases to help us understand the importance of this release.

  14. Allow export of content from Content Manager

    When reviewing content from users who are on legal hold, allow admins to export data directly from Content Manager instead of requiring the admin to navigate to the file in Box.

    This request is still under consideration. The team is working on its sequencing among the rest of enhancements for our watermarking capabilities. 

    Feel free to share any specific need on the customisation aspects of watermarks (texts, metadata specifics, etc) you may have, as well as use cases you are considering it for. Such details will be extremely helpful towards understanding this ask's impact.

  16. Option to request access to a folder

    Request: If an external or internal user is forwarded a Box folder invite and they are not a current collaborator, they should have a mechanism to request the access and such request should automatically go to folder Owner/Co-owner for approval or decline. This should be done in a way that does not display or communicate the folder owners name.

    Rationale: We have many external users that are part of large teams. Adding all (and maintaining) in the team is not feasible. These external users often forward the folder invites.

  17. Shared Link Lookup Tool

    Problem: Admins often need to do investigation of files stored in Box and all they have to go off of is the file/folder's shared link. Since admins can't search by shared link in the current Content Manager UI, a Shared Link Lookup tool would provide similar information.

    Key Features:
    -Provide ability to enter a shared link (standard or vanity URL)
    -Information returned after searching:
    -File/folder name
    -File/folder owner
    -File/folder location (Owner -> Folder hierarchy)
    -Status (whether the file/folder has been deleted or not)
    -Admin-level 'delete' (ability for the admin to delete the file on the spot)

  18. Admin Trash -- Include Items in 'Trash' when using Search in Content Manager from the Admin Console

    Search in the Content Manager does not currently include items in Trash. This is a security/eDiscovery challenge currently.

  19. Folder transfer takes too long - user loses access

    Currently when content is transferred from one owner to another owner, collaborators lose access to the transferred content until the move is complete. Depending on the size of the move it can be an extended period until collaborators can access the content

  20. Templates - Restrict Templates to Specific Users/Groups and/or Folder Structures

    Metadata templates are currently global across an entire EID. This does not scale well for large organizations with 50,000, 100,000 or more than 200,000 users.

    This request is to add 'scope' parameters to Metadata Templates such that a specific template can be restricted to...
    1. A specific set of users
    2. A specific set of Groups
    3. A specific Folder structure
