  1. "Move Owned Items" API call fails for users with a large amount of content.

    We aim to fully automate the deprovisioning of users using Box Platform. This normally involves transferring content the user owned to their manager or another service account. For users who own large amounts of content this is challenging (even via the UI), and not possible at all using API.

  2. Visual Versions: Preview prior versions directly in the web app

    Concurrent editing feature in Office Online can result in 200+ versions of a document within a matter of hours.

    There is no easy way to identify which version we want to roll back to without downloading previous versions.

    We would like a preview of earlier versions to be available in the web app - does not need to be a full html5 but maybe an instant preview?

  3. When a user downloads a folder, the admin would like the individual files shown as downloaded in the access stats reports

    Currently if you download a folder, the report will only show the user downloading a folder, not the individual files iwthin the folder. The client would like to know exactly what was downloaded as the content of a folder can change in it lifetime

  5. increase font size on file/folder picker

    Relay's file picker has a noticeably smaller font size and it's inconsistent with our new ui's brand

  7. Allow Searching by Last Name - Invite Collaborators / Email Shared Link / Comment @Mentions

    In the Invite Collaborators modal (and other locations such as the Comment composer), Box's autocomplete feature only allows the user to search by either email address and/or first AND last name. Meaning for user John Doe with email jdoe@box.com, a search for...--"John D" will populate correctly--"jdoe" will populate correctly--"Doe" will NOT populate correctly REQUEST: Allow searching by last name (without having to enter first name before).

    Thank you for submitting this request. We’re pleased to announce that we have added support for searching by last name and email address when sharing from the Box web application. We hope to expand this functionality to our comments support in a future release.

  8. Show Exact Timestamp for Comments (Instead of 'X Months Ago')

    Make new Web App comment timestamps exact, just like they were in Legacy.

    We’ve updated the timestamps shown in the Activity sidebar of Amsterdam for Comments and Tasks such that they now show a more logical mix of exact and relative dates. Additionally, you can always hover over a timestamp to see a tooltip with the full day/date/time for any entry.

    Transcription and translation capabilities from any ML provider can be integrated into Box today with the Box Skills Kit. These can be automatically added to Box metadata via a Box Custom Skill and viewed in the Box Preview experience.

  10. Enterprise level option to default collaborator permission to either Viewer or Editor

    We would like to default all collaborators to Viewer vs the standard/OOTB Editor role

  14. Allow group admins to search for all managed users

    Currently, group admins can add any managed user into their group, but searching for users will not auto-populate unless the user is already in a group that they manage.

  15. Prevent installation of .msi Box Edit if per-user .exe is already installed

    Users get access to Box before their IT team deploys Box Edit. End users start using Box Edit by downloading/installing the .exe installer. Then their IT team deploys the .msi version. This results in Box Edit issues (usually "Box Edit does not support this file type" errors) and requires their IT team to clean up the per-user installs.

  16. Visual Indicator on Folders with External Collaborators

    Currently, when a folder has external collaborators in it, we show a small globe icon for that collaborator in the Collaborators list (sidebar + full collabs page), but no other visual indicator at the folder level.Often, users want to quickly know "is this folder shared with anyone external/outside my company?" without having to manually comb through the full list of collaborators.REQUEST: Add a visual indicator (either folder color, icon, 'tag'/label, etc.) at the folder level (visible from within the folder and possibly from the files list as a badge) to indicate when a folder has external collaborators in it.

    This is available in the API. Still working on bringing this capability in to the admin experience!

  18. Ability to control and mute email notifications that comes from tasks

    Whenever a task is assigned via an automation, that task is assigned by the main admin, who will also receive email notifications regarding the task.

    Because this is done through automations, the admin will get flooded with emails about the task, which is not desirable in a large organization.
