  1. Insights map uses wrong geoip database

    We have noticed that the map displayed on the insights page does not use the same information the report attached to the map does. On the map we see connections to countries that are not in the report.

    This massively reduces the value of the map and has raised multiple security alerts, as we see connections from countries on our "forbidden list" that we cannot explain with the report.

    Lack of correct information is removing trust in the overall solution in our security department. This should be fixed soon.

  2. Ability to set an expiry date for external collaborators

    It would be very helpful to secure access to our files if we were able to set an expiry date when inviting external collaborators to a folder. It seems the only option is to share a link with an expiry date, but that leaves it open for the link to be sent to others and doesn't help if a collaborator needs wider access permissions, or just flag it up as a reminder in our Outlook calendars!

  3. ”Box Edit” ”logs”

    About the addition of the automatic log deletion function of Box Edit

    I understood that the current maximum value for log storage is as follows
    (現在のログ保存の最大値は以下のようになっていると理解しています。)

    ・Box Edit log: 5 files with a maximum of 5MB per day
    ・Local Com Server Log: 5 files of up to 5MB per day
    ・Upgrade Service Log: 10 files with a maximum of 10MB per day

    Although there is an upper limit per day, the Box Edit logs will continue to accumulate forever.
    We are concerned that if we use the system for a long period of time, the storage capacity will keep increasing…

  4. Allow group administrators of SSO-enabled tenants to change the email addresses of group members

    According to the information provided by following link,
    group administrators are authorised to change the email addresses of managed users.

    *
    Link:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043692374

    Manage group member accounts:
    Edit non-admin user accounts in the Managed Users tab, including user name, email, storage, and settings.
    *
    In the case of tenants using SSO,
    only the administrator and co-administrator can change a managed user's email address.

    In this case, the group administrator cannot change the email address of the group member.

    However, in a tenant with a very large number of users,
    it is very difficult for the administrator/co-administrator to complete all the…

  5. Box for Slack

    When sharing a file with Box for Slack, a pop "Do you want to share it?"

    Some files do not want to be easily collaborated. Therefore, not only "Do you want to share?" But also "Share" and "Do not share" should be selected.

    With choices, you don't accidentally collaborate on important files easily.

  7. Watermarking feature turns document to a PDF and loses all formatting

    Currently the watermarking feature turns the selected document to a PDF, therefore losing all formatting from the original application. In excel the document loses all formatting features, including tabs, etc. Watermarking should not lose the formatting of the original document - and/or allow for watermarking feature to only be used when downloading and not in the view features.

  8. Watermarking only for downloads

    Watermarking in the Box view is intrusive. Allow for water marking feature to be marked as an option for downloaded materials only.

  9. Ability to open password protected files from mobile devices

    Until a few weeks ago, password protected files could be opened through the mobile app from a mobile device. Now the attempt to open a password protected file results in an error of "Decryption failed. (null). Password protected files cannot be opened from mobile device from m.box.com or www.box.com either (error is different). Seems to defeat purpose of cloud based storage since so many users depend on a mobile device to open view files from Box storage.

  10. Box for iOS shows activity bar as default onscreen

    When using box, the activity and comment tab is always showing onscreen. I must hit the full screen tab each time I open a new document. This should be defaulted to full screen, and a selectable feature to show comments, not the other way around imo.

  11. "inactive" or "archive" flag maps to less-expensive storage

    FEATURE IDEA:
    Provide ability to flag/classify files and folders in a way that allows Box to move them to a less-expensive storage offering on the back-end. This can be referred to as an "inactive" or "archive" flag.

    BENEFITS & BACKGROUND

    During the Box Higher Education Community Monthly Open Discussion on January 11th, an idea to submit to Box Pulse was formed, and seemed to have support from all in attendance (25-30 institutions).

    Box acknowledges that there is a growing concern around constantly increasing storage, and the costs associated with it. The majority of files stored in Box are perceived (or…

  12. Feeds and tasks in the carousel.

    I want to see feeds, tasks and notifications in the carousel instead of opening feeds, not pop-ups or email notifications.
    By doing so, the user can notice it quickly.
    However, the current carousel has few display items in the first place.

  13. Allow Marking Folders as "Move Locked" To Prevent Users From Moving Certain Folders Regardless Of Permissions

    Our admins are constantly dealing with users who accidentally drag and drop folders into other folders. This can have a big impact across our org, especially when a high level folder that's shared across the company is moved. Here's a common use case:

    We have a top level Projects folder. That folder contains a subfolder for every organization we do business with. Those Organization folders then contain subfolders for individual projects. We'd like to be able to mark the Organization level folders as Move Locked so that our users don't accidentally move folders from one Organization into another. This happens…

  14. Direct link creating and reporting for an entire folder. Custom Direct LInks

    Ability to create for an entire folders contents the Direct Links and a report listing those links so they can be uploaded to the app needing the direct links. Currently you have to touch each and every file you want a direct link too. Phase 2 would be allow custom URL for part of the direct links.

  15. notifications group

    Allow users to set per-group notification preferences. My work recently created several umbrella groups that contain 100's of people and these groups get added as collaborators to announcement type documents. These documents generate a lot of noise with comments, etc. Now I have to choose whether to get flooded with notifications or turn them off. I would prefer to disable notifications of just the documents associated with these big umbrella groups, not the notifications for documents to which my account has been specifically added as a collaborator.

  16. Copied photos do not carry any of the comments made on the original file.

    Comments that I have added to photos do not remain when I copy those photos to other folders within box. This is terrible as I now have to go through all of the copied photos for a second time and manually add all the comments that are associated with the original picture files.

    Please fix this.

  17. Move whith leaving a bookmark menu

    【Request】
    I would like to see "Move whith leaving a bookmark" added to the file menu.

    【Background】
    We are trying to centralize data management by using Box, but
    Copying files and folders within Box becomes inefficient if it becomes the norm.
    Searchability is reduced, file merging becomes more time-consuming, and the risk of editing or sending the wrong file increases.

    We want users to use "move" as their main tool, but
    However, if a file is removed from the source folder, other users will be confused and it will be difficult to use.

    The bookmark creation function is difficult to…

  19. Custom error messages when shared links cannot be accessed

    【Request】
    I'd like to be able to customize the error message when I can't access a shared link in Enterprise settings.

    【Current Status and Issues】
    The current error message is
    "This shared file or folder link has been removed or is unavailable to you.
    Think it's a mistake? No worries: Just email the owner or get in touch with Box support. We're here to help."

    However, it doesn't help with the next step at all.

    Even if the owner or administrator is contacted, they often can't identify the file and can't provide any support.
    Also, it is not always possible…

  20. Navigation of Box Notes

    We absolutely love using the Boxnotes in many ways - including as an index for projects that have for example, many presentations that are similar but different. We insert a preview and check through and check through versions to find slides we want. Some of our Box Notes therefore get very big and it would be great if there was the functionality to insert contents ad the top, or to collapse and expand based on the text style. We don't want much extra functionality - simplicity is the name of the game with Box Note.
