  1. Dynamically name signed documents based on metadata: signer's full name, company, email and others

    When there are documents in the same folder or templates that are repeatably signed with the same name (Ready Sign Link, Batch Send), Box Sign adds a number and () to the filename to note the different/unique files.

    There needs to be a better way to name the files - perhaps using metadata or using the unique id of the sign request. And then all files - signed docs and signed log would be renamed with the same name. Otherwise it's very hard to tell files apart when they all have the same name with just a number and ()…

  2. Box Drive performance improvement request when using VDI

    The VDI is experiencing operational delays when using Box Drive, and this is affecting our business.
    It was found that the delay was caused by a large number of disk I/Os.
    We checked the Box Drive logs and found that Box was reflecting 1,000 to 2,000 operation logs on Box to each user every morning.
    Since the above operations occur simultaneously for all users, there is a large load on the infrastructure.
    Please improve performance.

    「VDI利用時におけるBox Drive性能改善リクエスト」

    Box Drive利用時のVDIで操作遅延が発生しており業務影響が出ております。
    操作遅延の要因としては多数のディスクI/Oによって発生していることが判明しており、
    Box Driveのログを確認した所、Boxから毎朝1000~2000のBox上での操作ログを各ユーザーへ反映されていました。
    上記操作が全てのユーザで同時に発生する為、インフラストラクチャに大きな負荷が掛かっています。
    性能改善をお願いします。

  3. External references between Excel files saved in Box by URL.

    In Excel saved in SharePoint, the URL can be used to refer to the value of a cell in the other Excel file.
    We would like a similar functionality in Box.
    For example, if the file ID is "1234567890" and we want to refer to cell A1 of "sheet1", do the following.
    ex) ='https://****.ent.box.com/file/1234567890[sheet1]'!A1

  4. Box Sign via Text / SMS

  5. Unify move and copy behavior between BoxDrive and the Web browser.

    There is a detrimental effect caused by the fact that BoxDrive and the Web browser have different specifications for the operation of "move and copy," which is a basic operation of Box (it is actually upload and download).
    In particular, the fact that Shield's Access Policy and Classification Labels "maintain the original labels when moved and copied" is a major reason to use that feature.
    However, BoxDrive does not maintain labels, which does not lead to enhanced security or control of usage.
    Since there are many users who use BoxDrive as their main application, we would like to see the…

  7. Collaborations Report: Add Folder Filter

    My customer would like to filter down to a specific parent folder and see a report on all collaborators on that root folder and all child folders below. Right now the Collaborations report shows ALL folders which takes a long time to run and requires filtering after the report is run. Ideally we could filter to the correct folder at the beginning.

  8. I would like shortcut files created on Box Drive to be reflected on Box Web as well.

    I am aware that shortcut files (.lnk) created in Box Drive (on Explorer) are ignored as a file type and cannot be synchronized.
    However, in my work, I use Box Drive a lot and sometimes create shortcuts, but I can't share them because they are not synced, and they are deleted when I log out of the system.
    I feel this kind of specification is very inconvenient.
    I would love to see you respond to make this happen.

    (Japanese)
    Box Drive(エクスプローラー上)で作成したショートカットファイル(.lnk)は、
    無視されるファイルの種類として対象となっており同期が出来ないことは認識してます。
    しかしながら業務上、Box Driveの利用が多くショートカットの作成することがありますが、
    同期されないことで共有もできず、またログアウトしたことで削除されてしまう。
    このような仕様だと大変不便に感じてます。
    実現に向けて是非対応してほしい。

  9. use @mention in the Office suites of software (Words, Excel, PowerPoint)

    Currently, we are able to do commenting of the document in Box by using the @mention. But we are not able to do the same when we are editing document in the native Ms Office software eg Words, Excel & PowerPoint. The @mention does not work.

    Would like to have the same feature when we are working in the native document?

  10. Shield Malware Threat Detection False Positives on Excel Documents with Macros

    Multiplan (160k ARR) turned on Malware Deep Scan and was getting 3-5 false positives per day because users across multiple departments often work on Excel Documents with Macros. Due to their process, users need to upload new versions of these Excel documents daily (they cannot use Version Control to handle this). So the IT team is being pinged every time a new version is added. This has been so overwhelming that the IT team has turned off Malware Detection. They will enable again if Macros are not accidentally flagged as potentially malicious.

  11. Box Drive specification improvement request

    Box Drive is downloading a large amount of event streams, which can overwhelm company's network bandwidth. Due to the network bandwidth pressure, the business other than Box has been affected, so please take measures.
    Here are the details:

    Box Drive is likely retrieving folder and file events that the logged-in user has access to, but is aware that there may be a large number of event downloads in the following cases, for example:.
    ・A specific user performs bulk operations on a folder in which many users are collaborating. (All events are downloaded to Box Drives of all collaboration users)

  15. Ability to change the Date Field format

    Currently the date field is automatically filled based on the signer's PC device language.
    When the language is set in Japanese, the date will be written in Japanese but when it is set in English, the date will be written in English.
    It would be great if we can set the language/format of the date to be the same when there is multiple signers with different language setting.

  16. Ability for users to set sorting preference

    Box is not longer default showing files by file name. This requires resorting of files every time I open a folder, which is hundred of times a day.

  17. The option to cascade Relay triggers to subfolders for all triggers

    Box needs to add the cascade option to all Relay triggers to catch activity in underlying subfolders. The legacy automations feature that Box had did this by default. Now, the alternative is having to create several relay workflows that is too cumbersome to manage and doesn't scale.

  18. Add configuration option to hide the right-hand sidebar automatically

    When a file is opened, the right-hand sidebar is open by default. My preference is to have it closed, so I must close it each time. Please add a configuration option that would allow for users to set that sidebar closed at startup by default.

  19. Add "ent" to the URL of the shared link

    Please add "ent" to the URL of the shared link.

    Currently, "ent" is not appended to the URLs of shared links issued by tenants who have enabled the Box Verified Enterprise feature.

    In certain countries and regions, access to "box.com" may not be possible.
    One effective way to get around this is to access Box from a URL with "ent.box.com".

    When a shared link is issued by a BVE tenant, if the URL has "ent" attached to it, there will be fewer actions by the customer beyond that point, making the interaction smoother.

    (日本語)
    共有リンクのURLに「ent」を付加してください。

    現在、Boxベリファイド Enterprise機能を有効にしたテナントにおいて、発行した共有リンクのURLに「ent」が付加されません。

    特定の国や地域では「box.com」へのアクセスができない場合があります。
    これを回避するための有効な手段として「ent.box.com」がついたURLからBoxにアクセスするというのがあります。

    BVEのテナントで共有リンクを発行した際にURLに「ent」が付いた場合、その先のお客様によるアクションが減るため、やり取りがスムーズになります。

  20. disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled

    We would like a Function to disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled in the "Privacy" folder settings.

    We want this because If you invite multiple external collaborators, we don't want external people to detect who you are inviting.

    There is a function to hide collaborators, but if invited external users use comments, tasks, version history, it will be possible to see who is invited, so we would like to disable these functions as well.
