  2. Metadata triggers without folder specification

    --I want Box Relay to be able to kick workstreams off in sub-folders that don't exist yet. We have a general "Accounts" folder, and I want my metadata tag triggers to affect sub folders in that parent folder. However, the metadata trigger requires me to specify which specific folder to trigger the Relay within. I suggest one of two things:
    1. Remove the need for folder specification. If I have a metadata trigger, do I really need to specify the folder in which the content lives? Relay should scan for that metadata tag, wherever it occurs.
    2. Allow for Relay…

  3. Ability to download comments and print comments

    Would like the ability to download and/or print comments associated with a file. Perhaps via additional selections to "Download Comments" and "Print w/Comments".

    I understand downloading comments may need to be a separate file as the content could be in various application types and comments are not created in that document type. Printed files convert to PDF so it would be great if the comments could be converted to PDF and added directly to the printed file.

    Downloading and printing comments has been a request on the Box Community site from multiple people who have also listed some of their…

  4. Force Box Drive to sync status with Box every time file is touched .

    for example: User A locks a file, User B opens the file in drive (the lock status still hasn’t sync’d down user’s machine yet)
    User B edits the file and tries to save but Drive will show that it wasn’t able to save back the change to box and creates a problematic file.
    User B closes the file, and then reopens the file. The change User B made still shows up.
    Onedrive checks for the latest status every time it opens a file or when you try to save a file it will sync status with what is in the…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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…

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
