  1. Entering multiple accounts should auto-populate under in Assignee(s) field.

    For the Relay window, users should enter emails one at a time so that the assignee options populate. For collaboration window, if entering all emails at once works, pasted accounts will be auto-populated. So it should also work in the Relay window.

  2. Don't point users to the EID's Primary Admin when users try to access a disabled app

    Don't point users to the EID's Primary Admin when users try to access a disabled app. This is problematic for our larger customers as it prompts the user to reach out to an email address that may not be monitored or inundates the admin with what should be HelpDesk tickets.

  3. Add "remove collaborator" option as option in a Relay workflow

    In the same vein as being able to Add a collaborator as part of a Relay workflow, it would be nice to also Remove a collaborator as well. Customer would like to Add a collaborator as part of a workflow, have that collaborator do their part, then have them removed as they no longer need access to the content going forward.

  4. Delimiters are not escaped in the collaboration report

    In order to analyze the collaboration report, I am trying to load the CSV file output by Box's reporting function into a tool other than Excel.
    However, the CSV cannot be loaded correctly into the tool because the characters used as delimiters in CSV, such as comma and double quotation marks, are not escaped.
    Normally, these special characters should be escaped when outputting a CSV file, so please improve this feature.

  5. drag-and-drop upload for attachments of rich text format emails

    It would be nice to be able to upload attachments also on the rich text emails to Box by "drag-and-drop" so that Box users can share items by more Intuitive operation.

    So far it's possible to do that for attachments on the text format email, but I would appreciate further functional improvement.

  6. Make Shared Excel files only editable in Excel online, not downloadable.

    Create an access level for Word and Excel files that allows the user to edit them online, but not download them to /upload a new version of them from their computer. Basically, online edit only.

  7. relay in progress view showing too many tasks

    Box lacks a dedicated way to see what tasks require my immediate attention.

    Tasks "in progress" show all tasks I haven't worked on, plus all tasks that my (former) colleagues have not yet finished. As we have some group tasks that not all colleagues respond to, the list of tasks is getting very long and makes it very hard for me to organise my work.

    A dedicated view "my open tasks", holding only the tasks that require an action for me, would greatly help.

  9. Applying classification labels in Box Drive.

    When using Box Drive, classification labels are not visible in Windows Explorer.  Is there a way to apply classification labels without going to the web interface?

  10. WoW Storage Usage Metric

    I'd need week over week total space used report that can be exported for the past several years. (ideally 7 years, same as other reports)

    Part of this data is currently available in Insights (Admin Console), but it only displays for the past 30 days and doesn't have ability to export in CSV or Excel.

    Background:
    To calculate our ROI on Box and to report to our executive, we'd need a way to find out the historical data and its increase rate.

  11. Ability to Enable/Disable Annotations

    We would like to request for a feature to be able to enable/disable Annotations.

    Annotations is very convenient, but sometimes it could make users confusing, if they do not know how to use it.
    Therefore, we would be grateful if there is a feature to be able to disable Annotations, and then enabling afterwards.

  12. Candidate destinations are not displayed when inviting files to collaborate(Box for iOS)

    Box for iPhone/iPad and Box for EMM don't offer suggested recipients when you invite collaborators to a file.

    When inviting a collaboration to a folder, a list of possible recipients is displayed. Please do the same in the mentioned app.

  13. Thumbnail previews of documents should show file type: docx vs pdf

    The new BOX.Com format no longer shows Word Docs with a Symbol vs PDF with
    a different symbol.

    i.e. they have removed the prior, very visual, cues as to document type.
    We can still see EXCEL symbol, but hopefully that will not be lost

    This is a problem for us since we have many documents with long names, and
    can't always see the final extension
    Not to mention visual cues are exceedingly useful and helpful.

  14. Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    You cannot delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.
    It is not necessary to display Notes that are no longer relevant to the user or that they no longer need to access.

    By deleting the history, only the Notes that are relevant to you will be displayed, which will improve the efficiency of your work in Box Note.


    Box Noteの「受信トレイ」と「最近のノート」の履歴を削除する。

    ボックスノートの「受信箱」と「最近使ったノート」の履歴を削除することはできません。
    ユーザーに関係のないノートや、ユーザーがアクセスする必要がなくなったノートを表示する必要はありません。

    履歴を削除することで、自分に関係のあるノートだけが表示されるようになり、Box Noteでの作業効率が向上します。

  15. Please implement the function to restore the contents in the trash to a folder other than the original folder location.

    Please implement the function to restore the contents in the trash to a folder other than the original folder location.

    Currently, when restoring files/folders from the trash, it will be restored to the same folder as before the deletion.
    If we accidentally delete a large number of items that we plan to move, it will take a considerable amount of time to restore and then move, and the items in the move process (delete / move / copy) will be temporarily locked, which will hinder our business.
    We are confident that if we can select the restore location, which will…

  17. Mentions

    Specify multiple people at once when commenting on a comment.

    You can use @mentions to notify users of files in Box, but I think it is extremely inefficient to have to enter the user name from @ every time.

    However, we think it is extremely inefficient to have to type the username from @ every time.
    For example, it would be very convenient to be able to specify @mentions with a single click or by copying and pasting.

    (和訳)
    Box上のファイルに対し、@メンションでユーザーに通知することが出来ますが、毎回@からユーザー名を一から入力する必要がするのは極端に作業効率が悪いと捉えています。

    例えばメールの返信の様な形でワンクリックで指定出来たり、
    コピー&ペーストで指定できるなど、簡単に@メンションが付けられると非常に便利だと思います。

  18. Please add Linux to the support for Box.

    【Background】
    As we use many Linux servers, the total size of the log files is also large.
    Please add Linux as supported, as we want to save the log files stored on the Linux server to the Box.

    【Request】
    Box does not support Linux.
    In the past it was possible to access the Box via WebDAV, but this is no longer supported.
    Please add Linux to the support for Box.
    It would be preferable if it could be mounted like WebDav.
    If the folder on the Box can be mounted on Linux, the application can simply change the specification of…

  20. I would like to see BoxWeb implement a function to sort files by extension.

    The current BoxWeb does not allow sorting by file extension.
    However, in some fields, a large number of photos and videos are often taken for measurement and development work, and many types of files are miscellaneously stored in a single folder.

    For example, when searching for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...) For example, if you are looking for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...), you can search for them by file name, but you may also want to check them by file extension.

    We currently use a method of dividing files into categories by file type, such as blocks of image files, blocks of video…
