  1. Root Folder Organization: Organize folders into personal subfolders even if they are not owners

    Requesting ability to move folders shared with you into sub-folders you choose to create & manage (not impacting the true location/hierarchy of the shared folder itself established by the folder owner)

  2. Usage Logs - Better Reporting when Shared Link Permissions are Changed

    Right now you can see WHEN a user changed the value of a shared link (closed to open for example) but not to what, so if a link was changed, we have to guess as to what level of access. This seems like a gap security wise and may lead to us shutting down shared links.

  3. Templates - Restrict Templates to Specific Users/Groups and/or Folder Structures

    Metadata templates are currently global across an entire EID. This does not scale well for large organizations with 50,000, 100,000 or more than 200,000 users.

    This request is to add 'scope' parameters to Metadata Templates such that a specific template can be restricted to...
    1. A specific set of users
    2. A specific set of Groups
    3. A specific Folder structure

    We are evaluating options to improve the findability of metadata templates as well as to restrict the scope of access to templates based on dimensions such as application, group, and folder. If you have a use case for this please leave a comment on the request with an explanation of what problem you are trying to solve and how such a change would benefit your organization.

  4. Folder transfer takes too long - user loses access

    Currently when content is transferred from one owner to another owner, collaborators lose access to the transferred content until the move is complete. Depending on the size of the move it can be an extended period until collaborators can access the content

  5. Added an event trigger for FILE.RENAME and FOLDER.RENAME for V2 webhooks

    This events would trigger v2 webhooks when an item is renamed.

  6. Bulk assign metadata attributes to multiple folders/files at one time

    We were a previous heavy user of tags and our users enjoyed the ability to assign tags to multiple files at once in the old UI.

    Because they have tens of thousands of users deployed, they often have the same attribute needed to be assigned to many files.

    We are evaluatig options to assign metadata values to multiple files and/or folders in a user friendly manner. We currently offer the ability to define a Metadata Cascade Policy on a folder, which will assign a metadata template and, optionally, default metadata field values to all files within that folder structure. More information is available https://community.box.com/t5/Organizing-and-Tracking-Content/Cascading-metadata-templates-in-folders/ta-p/67801

    If this is insufficient to satisfy your use case, leave us a comment with the problem you are trying to solve and what would help you to address it.

  7. Slack: Show Preview of Box Files within Slack

    Currently, the Box + Slack integration auto-unfurls Box shared links that are posted into a DM/Channel in slack.

    The only Box file type that unfurls to a native (in-line) preview are image files (jpg, png, etc.).

    Slack has a native preview for a video file uploaded directly in Slack, but no preview for the same file when shared via Box.

    REQUEST: Add in the native (in-line) preview (that already exists for image files shared from Box) for many more common file types (Office files, PDFs, mp4s, etc.) -- possibly by leveraging the Box Preview API.

  9. Create Box folders associated with Slack channels

    Similar to the SFDC integration where Box folders can be tied to SFDC records

  10. Request to increase item count per folder limit

    We would like to be able to add more than 15,000 items per folder. We are working with multi-level folders structures within our environment and anticipate having more than 15,000 items within the first level of their subfolders.

  11. Metadata key values of type {number, date} only searchable by range (gt, lt) and not equality

    Assume I have a metadata template "Template" with a key - value of type Number. In both the web app and API, it is not possible to do an equality search:

    templateKey = template
    filters = {"value": 2}

    Instead, the search requires specifying both lower and upper bounds. If you're searching for a single value, you then have to approximate it with a gt = 2, lt = 2 combo.

    a) Most importantly, the API documentation implies that the range parameters are not required when searching by number or date.

    b) I think both the webapp UI and the API…
