  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Request to add Chunk Downloads, download resume feature

    When a large file fails to download, users will have to start the download from the beginning all over again. We would like a retry/resume feature.

  6. Bulk Download Speed Increase

    We're attempting to download files over 10 GB using the bulk download feature but it is taking longer than it would take if they were to download each file individually. It appears we are hitting a limit to which the bulk download feature is actually improving their speeds.

  7. Slack: Sync 'Comments' on Files Between Box & Slack

    Right now, when using the Box + Slack integration, Slack imports a 'pointer' to a Box file (when a shared link is posted), and then keeps that file's search index updates based on changes that happen in Box.

    REQUEST: Extend this integration further to sync any Comments made on the file between Box and Slack.

    In Slack, I can add a Comment to the imported Box file by clicking 'add comment', and in Box I can 'add Comment' -- it'd be nice if the comment added to the file directly in Slack also synced and was added automatically as a…

  9. 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…
