  2. Gmail - Expose Box Links as Pseudo-Attachments like Drive Links Already Do

    When an email contains a link to a Drive file, Gmail is smart enough to keep that link in the email (of course), but also adds a nice 'attachment' UI element to the bottom of the email to make it easier for 1) the user to know what files are attached (really just linked) in the email at a glance, and 2) easy to click on the right one that they want to see.

    REQUEST: Provide this same UI/UX for Box shared links that are in emails within Gmail too.

    This is feature is available within our Box for Gmail Add-On, where the add-on will detect and expose Box Shared Links in the add-on sidebar (Gmail does not allow third-parties access directly in the email UI)

  3. Picker: Allow to be configured for files only or folders only

    Connections uses picker in different contexts.

    For files: allow only file selection, but still allow nav down folder tree. Remove the 'add file' button.

    For folders: Allow only folder selection, do not show files. Do not show add files or all files button.

    Actions, like Download, taken within Box for Desktop are already logged in Access Stats that are exposed in the webapp.

  5. Expiring OAuth Tokens by App

    We need to force users to reauthenticate with Sync, Mobile, or other OAuth applications. We seek to make this a configurable time period.

  7. Add 'Description' Field for Groups in Box

    Groups in AD have a custom 'descriptions' field; the Groups feature should have the same parity to give more context to Groups within the Admin Console, especially, as a large company, we have many Groups that have similar names.

  8. File Picker: Add file preview pane to file picker widget.

    We are using the file picker widget in a custom app. We are requesting the addition of a preview pane to the file picker widget so our end users can get a preview of files they are potentially adding.

  9. Make a Custom Action app available to managed users only

    Create a public app that is available to members of the enterprise only. We would like to create a custom app that allows users to launch a Record Manager app that's tied to the main enterprise record software.

    Currently Box only allows this to be available as a public app, which we do not want to do. We prefer to limit this app to be available to managed users of this EID only.

  11. APEX SDK need group collaboration support

    We are working on building out our SFDC integration to support some additional work flows. We leverage groups heavily and would like the ability to collaborate groups using the APEX SDK, which currently is not supported. User collaboration is.

  12. Previewer Uploader Able to Download Files

    When a link is sent with the access level set to "Collaborators Only" a "Previewer Uploader" Collaborator can then open the link from their email and have the option to "Open in App" and the IOS app will give them the opportunity to Download the File. The file can then be uploaded to Google Drive and then viewed on a desktop or mobile device. This basically gives the Previewer Uploader the ability to download the file.

  14. Apply File-Based Policies via API

    Having retention policies at the file level (even if only available via API) would make integrations simpler when retention logic is coming from external sources (i.e., other systems).

    Providing this functionality would allow for more elaborate use cases. For example, if a classified document is uploaded and identified, it can be automatically retained for a set period of time.

    Folder-based retention for everything, as it leads to over-retention of content. In an ideal process, for example, when a document is switched from Draft to Final, the retention policy would be applied to the document (and would work for that version…

  15. Add date due date for all workflows launched from Template

    The ability to add a due date (ex 7/31/18) in to the template that all workflows launched from that template would inherit automatically, instead of it being entered manually by the workflow owner at launch.

  17. Assign task to specific user after workflow launch

    Example: during a creative request an AE may need a mockup to be created for a customer they are working on. They start a creative services workflow, which gets routed to the Creative Director. The creative director reviews request and based on skill and bandwidth assigns next step to appropriate creative team member. Right now that would have to be decided in Step 1 at the launch, rather than in the workflow process

    The runtime changes feature should suffice for now. Otherwise, we will also look at the prompting for a user assignment at the outcome of a step later in 2018.

  18. Replace all OpenLibre excel conversion servers with genuine MS Excel conversion servers OR Excel UI within Box Preview

    Currently there are several display errors and discrepancies with our OpenLibre office conversion engine. (incorrect aates are shown, shapes are not rendering, comments are blacked out, fonts are incorrect etc).This could be resolved by leveraging a native Microsoft Excel conversion mechanism OR by replacing Box Preview with a native O365 Excel Online-based viewer within the Box webapp.

  20. Exempt New Box View service account from the "Restrict Content Creation" setting

    If an enterprise admin has enabled "Restrict Content Creation" for their enterprise (under Admin Console > Enterprise Settings > Content & Sharing), only Admins and Co-Admins are able to create folders and files in the All Files location. This restriction also applies to the service account associated with New Box View apps. This means that if an admin wants to keep "Restrict Content Creation" enabled, they cannot use the New Box View with the same enterprise. The New Box View service account cannot be made a Co-Admin. The "Restrict Content Creation" flag also limits this user from owning any root-level…

    Try using Service Accounts. It’s similar to what New Box View (App Token Apps) offer except that they manage the folders where they upload the content to. You would have to manage how they redistribute the content across different folders in their service account.
