    This is currently not on the roadmap as we have not heard this request from many other customers.

    We will consider it in the future if there is increased customer demand.

  2. Access Statistics Toggle for Admins

    It would be useful to be able to enable or disable access statistics for non-owners.

    Currently, there are some collaborators that are required to be editors to be able to sync, but should not be able to see access statistics.

    Thank you for your suggestion. This is a niche use case and would cause additional complexity on the Web App side. We will reconsider with additional demand and use cases.

  3. Option to restrict folder owner from inviting other users as co-owners

    We only want certain Project owners to be able to change folder properties.

    This is narrowly valuable, and would be confusing to introduce more customization to permission levels. Therefore, this is not planned.

  4. Add Customizable 'Advisory Message' for Retention Policies

    Just as admins can customize the 'Advisory Message' shown to users for Classification policies, we want to customize the message shown to end users when they click for 'more info' on the 'Retention' UI element in the webapp (aka add an 'Advisory Message' field to the Retention Policy creation UI in the Admin Console).

    USE CASE: We would like to provide customized, specific messaging for our end users when a retention policy is applied. These users might be coming from a world where retention was managed differently. We want more control over the verbiage used.

  6. Automatic Disable of Account Based on Activity

    We would like the ability to technically control the automatic expiration, or alert users that their account has not been used in 90 days.

  8. Detection and blocking of distribution lists

    We use many distribution lists to communicate.

    Technically, Box does not stop you from adding a distribution list email as a collaborator to a folder. All members of the list get email notifications but access to the folder is not granted to anyone on the list. This is expected.

    This suggestion is merely a protection measure that can be addressed by user education, so it may have a low impact.

    This is an interesting request and likely something we should look into for future improvements to how we handle distribution lists.

    Because there’s a workaround and we have higher impact requests, we will table this suggestion for now.

    We are not planning on supporting this feature in the near future and will revisit if we have more demand from customers for this functionality.

  10. HTML5 Video Support in Custom Terms of Service.

    We would like to have a compliance video embedded in the Custom Terms of Service popup that appears in user trying to gain access to Box

    This is a very interesting request, and not one we have considered previously.

    It’s an unlikely addition, but we will consider this with additional demand.

    For now, is it possible to use a Box link for the video?

    Thank you for this suggestion! This is a low priority because it’s a very narrow use case. Changing this functionality does not impact a large enough user base.

  12. Policies: Add Ability to Apply Them Only to Selected Users/Groups

    For some use cases, we would like to enable a Policy (Upload, Download, or Sharing) in Box, but have that Policy scoped to only apply to certain users/groups.

    This is a feature we’ve considered in the past but do not plan to build in the short term. This may become a higher priority with more customer demand.

  14. Able to change reading mode (single/ double page) when previewing PDF doc

    With the new tablet from version 4.7x. Previewing PDF file on landscape mode will force a double page rendering.

    The double page mode works fine when the pdf is created in portrait layout. but with document in landscape (e.g.: pptx) it reduces readability as page is scaled to fit.

    This doesn’t sound like a big issue for Chromebooks. We will re-evaluate based on additional suggestions.

  15. Disable the automatic creation of the My Photos folder when installing Mobile App.

    Disable the automatic upload of camera images and the subsequent creation of a folder to store the uploads.

    Thanks for your note! This does not happen unless you turn on the setting.

  16. Grey out "Require passcode" option when Enterprise requires a passcode.

    It may make for a better UX if, when the Enterprise requires a passcode for the mobile app, the option was greyed out and unable to be toggled.

    As it stands, when you turn it off, it prompts you to create a passcode and then turns back on.

  17. Folder Owner to have the ability to place their own folders or files on legal hold

    It would be really beneficial for the Folder Owner to have the ability to place their own folders or files on legal hold (without making them an admin)

    Most legal holds happen at the admin/legal team level, but I understand the request and will reconsider with additional customer use cases.

  18. Prevent personal email clients from being opened in Box for EMM via 'Email Link' option

    The 'Email Link' functionality in Box for EMM, used when emailing a shared link, directly prompts the user for email clients recognized on the device (e.g. default email client and Gmail). We would like to be able to restrict Box for EMM from presenting the option of the personal email client.

    Or, as a fallback, restrict the 'Email Link' option entirely, as it serves as a security loophole for our team.

    There is no method for the Box mobile app to distinguish between a personal and business email address.

    Even if we were able to remove the email functionality, which many customers use, end users would still be able to copy the shared link and paste it within their desired email client.

    The shared link itself should be where proper security is enforced. These restrictions can be managed through the Admin Console.
