  1. Request Content Box Task Type

    Upload Content action needs to be optional, not required.My pretty hacky workaround now is for them to create a BoxNote or word doc that says "no content required" and link to that as the upload content step for now.

  3. "Lock" a folder taxonomy

    This allows a folder owner (or developer) to lock a folder taxonomy in place so that Editors can add and update documents but not create or rename folders.

    Definitely an interesting suggestion! Please comment below with your specific use cases and challenges regarding locking a folder taxonomy.

  4. User-Level Option to Default to 'In This Folder' Search

    Currently, 'in this folder' searching is an opt-in for each search that a user performs. Some users, however, would like webapp search to mirror the experience we already provide on mobile, aka always defaulting to doing an 'in this folder' search.

    REQUEST: Add a user-level setting (within a user's Account Settings) that allows them to opt-in to always defaulting to 'in this folder' searching (meaning the 'in this folder' checkbox in the quicksearch filter will always be checked unless the user manually unchecks it for a specific search).

  5. 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.

  7. Custom Watermarking based on metadata or manually.

    Opportunity where main requirement was to distribute content to various locations, but add custom watermarking as they are published out. Typically with the location name content is publisehd to.

  8. The ability to perform advanced searches despite having KeySafe enabled.

    They are open to, similar to the KeySafe concept, having a way to plug Box search into their own index.

  9. Indicators / Progress Bar for Large Folder Operations (Moves, Ownership Transfers, Delete, Copy)

    When doing a move of a large folder or changing the owner of a large folder, users often receive a 'this may take some time' banner notification in the webapp, but that quickly disappears and the user is left wondering... "so...has it finished fully yet?"

    REQUEST: Have more indicators (progress bar, e-mail updates, etc.) of progress in the operation, especially for folder moves/ownership transfers.

    Example: In our mobile apps, we provide a 'job manager' that shows the user progress when they're performing various actions.

    - How many files were denied (or stopped in process)

  13. Request to add Chunk Downloads, download resume feature

    When a large file fails to download, users will have to start the download from the beginning all over again. We would like a retry/resume feature.

  14. Unmanageable API Key Whitelists

    Enterprises with a lot of active software development groups have unmanageable API Key whitelists. This manifests in a lot of ways.

    There is no way to limit API Keys to development (limit liability). Typical dev-qa-prod cycle requires 3 API keys. No way to associate API Keys to specific projects. There is no way to tell if old API Keys are still in use.

    We have addressed whitelist management for JWT apps and OAuth app support is coming soon.

    Separately, we plan to support the dev / prod / QA process with Sandboxes in a much better way. More details soon.

    Definitely have heard this from several of our customers. To help us with prioritization, please add additional context regarding your specific use cases!

  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.

    Nice to have the step instructions in the email notifications.
