  1. Setting Folder Autodelete via API

    The automatic deletion date of a folder can be set from the web screen, but it seems that it cannot be set from the API.

    Could you please provide the ability to set this date from the API?

    We have a process that automatically creates thousands of folders using the API, but since it is not possible to set an automatic deletion date, a large number of past folders will continue to remain.

  2. Content owners to be searchable even if they own more than 1 million items

    Currently, Box's search function becomes unstable when the owner of the content you want to check owns more than 1 million pieces of content,
    making it impossible to hit the file correctly. It takes a huge amount of time to check the number of contents of the owner of the content to be confirmed each time in order to perform a file search correctly,
    which affects business operations. Please improve the search function so that it can be used correctly even if the content you want to check has more than 1 million owners

    現在Boxの検索機能は確認されたいコンテンツの所有者が100万コンテンツ以上所有している場合、ファイル検索の動作が不安定になり正常にヒットできません。
    正しくファイル検索を行う為に確認されたいコンテンツの所有者のコンテンツ数を都度確認するのは膨大な時間がかかり業務に影響がございます。
    確認されたいコンテンツの所有者が100万以上所有されていても正しく検索機能が使えるよう機能改善をお願いします。

  3. Want to be able to specify the number of times each user uses BoxAI

    Want to be able to specify the number of times each user uses BoxAI

    Box AI can currently limit the number of users who use it, but it is not possible to limit the number of times it can be used.
    This is very inconvenient. I would like to be able to specify users who can only use Box AI up to 20 times, or specify users who can use Box AI more than 20 times.

    BoxAIのユーザーごとの利用回数を指定できるようにしたい

    Box AIは、現状利用するユーザーを制限することはできますが、利用回数を制限することが出来ません。
    これは非常に不便です。20回までしかBox AIを利用出来ないユーザーを指定、または20回以上利用出来るユーザーを指定出来るようにしたいです。

  4. Ability to see deleted items only in the trash of the user who deleted them.

    In the case that a user accidentally uploads a sensitive file to an invited folder and delete it to avoid the access of others, the folder collaborator with viewer-uploader or above access permission can find it by searching the trash and moreover he/she can restore it.
    We need to limit the ability to see deleted items only in the trash of the user who deleted them.
    It would be even better if this could be configured in the admin console.

    ユーザーが誤って招待されたフォルダに機密ファイルをアップロードし、他のユーザーのアクセスを避けるためにそれを削除した場合、ビューアー/アップローダー以上のアクセス権限を持つフォルダのコラボレータは、ごみ箱を検索することでそれを見つけることができ、さらに彼/彼女はそれを復元することができます。
    削除されたアイテムを見ることができるのは、削除したユーザーのごみ箱だけに制限する必要があります。
    これを管理コンソールで設定できればさらに良いと考えています。

  5. Request to improve synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive"

    Request to improve synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive"

    We would like to request an improvement in the synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive so that they can be synchronized within 5 seconds.
    Our investigation of the synchronization speed is based on the following items.

    Pattern (3) Upload to Box Drive and check the screen update on WebUI: Result: No automatic update even after waiting for more than 5 minutes.
    Pattern (5) Delete the file on WebUI and check the update on Box Drive: Result: 20 seconds
    Pattern 6: Delete the file on the Box Drive…

  6. Get Rid of Waterfall Permissions - Allow Subfolder Security To Be Set Differently

    It is absolutely ridiculous that a company as large as Box is using waterfall permissions for all enterprise accounts.

    In a business environment, it is absolutely necessary to be able to set specific permissions on subfolders within a large data folder that all users have access to. This is a simple feature included with every other cloud file provider we've ever used.

    Needs to be included ASAP.

  7. 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?

  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. 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)

  12. 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.

    Please enable users to set the default sorting order for folders or restore the prior defaults

  13. Ability to read the EXIF data in the photos that are uploaded

    I need Box to read the EXIF data in the photos I upload. Having access to that would make categorizing and finding assets infinitely easier. If I could sort by the metadata already included with an image file I would be able to find by date, location, resolution, etc automatically. A default metadata template should be created that matches that of EXIF data so that it automatically loads. You could then find the images you want by searching the EXIF data then could apply other metadata to add more relevance.

  14. Ability to customize the notification emails sent from Relay

    We would like to incorporate this into Relay as a review and tracing task by forcing notifications to specific people or groups.

    It is difficult to do the above with the current e-mails being sent.
    It can't be reached with a single click because there is no file name or link to the trigger folder in the email only.
    Therefore, we would like to see the following improvements.

    [About the image]
    ・It could be mistaken for spam.
    ・Most of the mail body is occupied by images, making it difficult to read fixed messages.
    At the very least, We would like…

  16. Enhance user experience for searching files with tag

    As legal department, we manage contract documents using tag but when we search files filtering with them, user experience is not intuitive when I follow steps described below.

    1. search a keyword filtering with tag
    2. change the keyword on search box
    3. filter for tag set in 1 is reset and disappeared

    Also, we would like to search file filtering with tag without any keywords in the search box as populating keyword is currently a must to start to search unlike Metadata, which is also inconvenient.

  17. Search by Created Date and Modified Date

    When uploading a file by FTP, the Created Date and Modified Date on Details tab shows timestamp from the local PC.
    Box's search function only allows to search by Updated Date that is not the date from Modified Date from Details tab of a file, so please add the finction to search by Created Date and Modified Date for FTP uploaders.

    Possibly, 120 users could be affected by this function change because most of important files are in their local PCs, and it would be really helpful if they could search them by the dates that on their local PCs.

  18. About the scope of expiration notice to co-owners.

    Currently the expiration of the invited user to a folder is notified to the owner and co-owner of the folder,
    however, any co-owner cannot receive the expiration of the invitee of its child folder while owner receives all the expiration notification.

    We would like to request to cascade the scope of co-owner's privilege to its child folders so that the co-owner of the parent folder can receive all the expiration notification of the descendant folders.

  19. Folder color and icon customization

    Current UI, it is not easy to recognize which folder is important in visually.

  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.
