  2. Capture in the native Box App

    We would like to put together a mobile adoption plan but think it would easier for users to adopt mobile if Capture was not a secondary app, rather in the native app.

  4. Expose Favorites in Box Drive

    Favorites are becoming more and more popular now that they're better exposed (in the left rail) in the new Web App.

    As such, users expect to access their Favorites list regardless of which endpoint they're using - webapp (supported), mobile (supported), or desktop (not supported via Sync or Box for Desktop).

    REQUEST: Add a 'Favorites' view to Box for Desktop content (somehow) that allows the user to view only their Favorites (files + folders) just like they do in the webapp.

  5. Support opening apps from App Gallery in a new tab or window.

    With 141 pages of apps in the marketplace, if I page through and find an app that I want more detail on, I click the app link (I cannot open this in another tab or window).

    This takes me to a page with more detail on the app. However if I go back to the marketplace, it takes me back to page 1. I then have to page through scores of views just to get back to where I left off.

  8. Folder-Level Activity Reporting: Ability to Report on Activity and Access Stats at the Folder Level

    Add an 'export' option available for folder Owners & Co-Owners to export various items at the folder level (meaning in the webapp - not the Admin Console) for--Activity (uploads, download, moves, previews, create shared link, invite collaborators, etc.) in the folder--Collaborations--Etc.

  9. Metadata Versioning History

    As we need to meet specific regulatory or compliance requirements, it's helpful to have a history of the metadata attributes that are applied to a folder or file.

    It would be ideal if this was versioned on files/folders in the UI or reportable via user reports.

  10. Support External Users in Box Groups

    Currently only Managed Users can be added to Groups in Box. This request is to allow both Managed and (NEW) External Users to be added as members of Groups to easier bulk collaborator management.

    We are beginning to develop solutions that will allow external users to be placed in groups. We’ll post an update when this feature officially makes it onto our roadmap.

  11. Folder specific usage reports

    A number of our teams need the ability to run usage reports based on the folder in contrast to the typical usage report which is based on the user/group.

    We want to store highly sensitive documents in Box but need visibility into this kind of activity. This would also function as a very scalable way of measuring content adoption for the Team Leads.

  12. Shared Link Details: Add 'Last Usage' Column

    The Shared Link Details report is a great report currently that provides admins a wealth of information when performing an 'inventory' or security review of all existing shared links.

    One additional column that would be very helpful to include is a 'Last Usage' column that would provide a date entry for each shared link.
    Usage is defined as the last time someone actually used that link in a browser. This is helpful to admins to be able to know if a link is still being used or not (prior to disabling it for security reasons.)

  13. Security Report: Log when apps are disabled/enabled in the Admin Console

    Currently, when admins/co-admins mark apps as 'available' or 'disabled' in the Admin Console -> Enterprise Settings -> Apps page, no reporting event is triggered, meaning companies have no way to self-identify who enabled/disabled which applications/endpoints, and this is a major security concern for some customers. REQUEST: Add entries to the Security Report in the admin console whenever:1. A published app's status is changed between Available, Disabled, and Added by Default (via the Enterprise Settings -> Apps page)2. An API key is added/removed from the Unpublished Applications Whitelist field on Enterprise Settings -> Apps

  14. 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)

  15. 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.

  16. True versioning with Office Integrations

    Our users are in Office online documents for several hours as they are working on legal documents. What this does is creates hundreds of versions of one document due to the auto-save feature and eliminates the benefits of versioning because the versions saved are not true versions.

    It makes it difficult to see what the previous changes were that the other user made. We need true versioning for forensic value for our legal documents.

  17. 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 users2. A specific set of Groups3. 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.

  18. 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
