    We are definitely tracking this feature, but it is not yet on the roadmap for delivery.

    How would envision managing your groups?

    Would you want to sync with an existing directory, or create the Groups directly in Box?

  3. Allow reorganization of received collaborated folders

    I would like to request that all users are allowed, as non-folder owners, to place shared folders inside non-shared folders. This allows for better organization for users and therefore an overall better user experience. All other cloud services that I am a part of allow this.

    Example:
    I own the folders "fruit" and "orange." Someone else owns the folder "apple" and shares it with me. Currently, I cannot place the folder "apple" inside of my "fruit" folder. I would like to request this is changed.

    Currently, Box permissions (and as it was explained to me, security) does not allow it.…

  4. Remove multiple collaborators from folders

    Box currently does not have a way to remove multiple collaborators at bulk.
    Currently, admin needs to manually remove multiple users by opening the appropriate folder and removing users one at a time.

    Suggestion can also apply to removing collaborators from multiple folders.

    We’re definitely considering this feature given the pain points that users are facing today! Please comment with your specific use cases and the challenges you’re facing so our team can prioritize and solution accordingly.

  5. Return character in Classification Definition

    Currently "Classification Definition" can be written with 'return character' in its input form. But when this "Classification Definition" is shown to the user, 'return character' is being ignored and is shown in one line.

    Definition needs to be shown in the same way it was written / configured, and also needs to be shown in several lines when required (e.g. written in multiple languages where each language's definition needs to be shown in each line, instead of all in single line).

  6. Comments / Tasks from Desktop (Box Drive)

    In order to currently leave a comment on a file we have to right click on it, click on view on Box drive, which opens chrome, loads the file, then click on the comment icon on the right and then leave our comment

    A quicker and much simpler way of doing this would be to bring in comments and tasks into the box drive app to save us all of those steps of having to do this through our browser. There are a couple ways of doing this

    1) Bring in notifications, tasks and a comment stream into the system…

  9. Pop-up message when unintentionally shifting folders

    It is strongly needed to have a pop-up message with Box Drive and Box Sync that allows the user to stop an unintentional shift of folders or files.

  10. Using Smart Access

    When entering a List when creating a Shield Smart Access Policy, have drop down appear that shows all available lists with short descriptions so the user doesn't have to try to remember the names of the lists they created or what they generally contain.

  11. 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.

  12. Report on who has Relay enabled

    Ability to report on who has Relay enabled in an enterprise account. Via "Export users" would be nice, but not even Box's own reporting team can produce this data right now which is unfathomable.

  15. name folder based on data created

    When a new folder is created through Relay, have various options to name the file beyond a default name field, such as data created as an insert field variable.

  16. Indicate whether a user is a managed user or app user in Admin event stream

    Adding a parameter in the Admin event stream which indicates whether the user that took an action was a managed user or app user would make it more efficient for administrators or analytics tools to separate activity by the different user types. In an active enterprise the volume of events may be very great, and having this additional level of specificity would simplify reporting.

  17. Upload more than photos in Box Mobile for iPhone

    We need an option to upload directly from Files app/Microsoft products via the Box Mobile App. Currently you can only upload boxnotes and photos directly from the Box Mobile app and to upload anything else you must go to a particular app and upload it from there.

    On Android you can do this, why not iPhone?

  19. Export individual application controls

    The current individual application control has around 150 pages worth of applications. It would be easier for us to better manage individual app (enable/ disable/ add by default) if we can export everything to a report, sort of like bulk edit.
