  1. Ability to apply Retention Policy retroactively to Trash

    The trash folder retention policy was enabled after the implementation of Governance.

    Files in the trash show a deletion date if it was deleted after Governance was implemented.

    The vast majority of the Trash files were deleted prior to Governance, and do not show a delete date.

    Will these files be deleted? If not, how do we add these files to the 60 day retention policy?

  4. Unlimited Version History

    Version history should be changed to allow people to restore file versions going as far back as the file's inception.

  8. Metadata driven Automations

    Customer wants the ability to push an approved item into multiple folders at once, which would be done using Box automations with metadata, where specific metadata can be added to push items into specific folders. For example adding metadata ?a?, ?b? and ?c? to a document will move the file to folders ?a?, ?b? and ?c?.

  12. .PKG File for Deploying Box Edit

    We currently only provide a DMG file for deploying Box Edit on a Mac. This is not really scalable and not the preferred way to deploy apps to Mac workstations in large enterprises.

    Documentation: https://community.box.com/t5/For-Admins/Large-Scale-Deployments-Box-Edit/ta-p/6591

  13. Automation task email appears to come from root admin.

    The email that gets sent out to users informing them of a task awaiting completion as part of an automation is sent on behalf of the main root admin for the EID.

    In other words, even if the automation was created by a co-admin and assigned to a random user, the email that user receives will appear to come from the root admin, not the co-admin who created the automation.

  15. Custom dialogue upon login

    I would like the ability to have a text alert at the top of our page that promotes a tool, such as Box for Office, on the All Files and Folders page.

    I did look at the terms of service option, but I do not think that is what we are looking for. We were hoping there would be some way to either add text to the All Files view that could alert members to features we wish to promote, such as the co-authoring or the DocuSign app, maybe like the way people are prompted to accept or reject folder…

  16. The ability to edit comments

    Editing comments would make the comments section less cluttered and allow for mistakes to be fixed.

  17. Allow selecting a different root folder post install

    After we mirrored our production environment to a SFDC sandbox, the sandbox comes with the Box integration pre-installed and the Salesforce Root Folder pre-populated to point to the same folder connected to the production instance.

    We would like the ability to configure the sandbox instance of the integration to point to any other folder, either via UI or exposed via SDK/toolkit.

  18. Assigned Tasks needs to be all Completed and not declined for Automation to trigger the next action

    Automation won't move a file for "complete task" action unless all the tasks on it are completed. No task can be Declined.

  20. Hide parent folder path in Box Embed

    Box Embed in Salesforce currently shows the full path of the folder. Users can click on the path to navigate away from the current record folder.

    This can be confusing for some users, so the admin would like to hide this part of the embed widget.
