  1. WebApp UI - Ability to collapse left sidebar

    New Box layout New Box layout takes up space, reduces visibility and ability to recognize folders/files

    Perhaps I am missing something. With the new Box web application, there is now a wide, persistent orange menu in a left sidebar. That menu does not appear to be something that I can hide. I use Box on a laptop with limited screen real estate, and the new sidebar eats up a lot of the space previously available to show data. As a result, my list of folders and documents is squeezed into a smaller space, and I see a much smaller set…

  2. Option to replace new Recents Carousel with older slider view

    I would like an option to replace new Recents Carousel with the former horizontal slider view when using a browser on a PC. On a wide screen the older view is a more efficient use of space.

  3. UI improvements - Download Button

    received multiple feedback from users, where their client missing out the button on how to download, ended up they trying to sign up, which not ideal in term of fast pace workflow
    should be making the Download button bigger and colored, so more stands out,
    currently the button a bit hard to notice, but instead the Log In and Sign up superseded the overall view

  4. Select all the files in the folder and easily move or copy them

    I need a feature that allows me to select all the files in a folder (or similar features) and easily move or copy them.
    Because, when we use "Ctrl + A" to select all the files, it takes a lot of time to load all the items, so it's not possible to actually select all the files in the folder with "Ctrl + A".

  5. Display error when entering unsupported characters when renaming folders and files

    When creating a new folder or file, if you include characters not supported by Box (other than Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane characters), receive an error.
    However, when renaming, I can name files and folders using characters other than BMP.
    (After renaming a folder or file, the character will automatically change to "_" after a while.)

    Please allow the same error to be displayed when an unsupported character is entered when renaming a folder or file,as when a new character is created.

    (日本語)
    <フォルダ名・ファイル名の変更時にサポートされていない文字を入力するとエラーを表示させる>

    現在、フォルダやファイル作成時にBoxでサポートされてるUnicodeの基本多言語面 (BMP)以外の文字を入力するとエラーが表示されます。
    しかし、名称変更時にはBMP以外の文字を使用したファイル名・フォルダ名を付けることができます。
    (変更後しばらくすると自動的に「_」変わります。)

    サポートされていない文字を入力したときに、新規作成と同じようにエラーを表示できるようにしてください。

  6. To enhance trash for users who had an access to contents to be able to see them in it

    Currently, only owner of deleted content or user who deletes content can see them in Trash. It would be helpful if deleted contents in trash can be seen by all of users who had collaborator permissions (e.g. above previewer).
    This is needed because when a user deletes contents (accidentally), the "non-owner" collaborators have a difficulty of knowing what happens on contents. For some enterprises, content owner is typically a service account so every time this happens we need to find the "culprit" or connect to IT who can access as owner, which is very painful.

  7. The ability to search shared links (incl. disabled ones) as an end user

    Once a shared link is disable, it is hard to trace it. As a user, we would like to have a functionality to search shared link that the user enabled

    Scenario: A user pastes a shared link on an email and the shared link is disable after sending. After a while, the user comes back to email to find the file but it can't be accessible. The more shared links users take advantage of, the more painful it becomes

  8. Option to enforce Box account login on public shared link

    Provide an option to require a user to login to a Box account in order to access a public shared link. This becomes useful when you want to record a specific access audit trail but do not have a specific person in mind and therefore cannot invite them as a collaborator

  9. □ I want to be able to increase and customize the definition of shared links

    □ I want to be able to increase and customize the definition of shared links

    What you want to achieve
    ・I want to be able to set the definition of shared links by the administrator.
    ・ I want to be able to specify whether or not to access the link by the domain of the email address.
    ・I want to set a shared link for the created group.

    As a business impact, in the case of school use, all faculty members and all students can see it in the "company user" of the shared link.
    In some cases, students may…

  10. Add simple editing functionality for videos in Box (e.g. trim or stitch)

    Add simple editing functionality for videos in Box (e.g. trim or stitch).

    We take a lot of videos. Mostly from Zoom. Sometimes 8 hour learning sessions. Simple stitching or trimming would be valuable. Dropbox has this.

  11. Improve messaging when moving folders between owners

    Currently in the web app, a co-owner of a folder is able to move that folder to another location with different ownership. It makes sense that this is allowed and I don't want that to change. However, when the user does this action, they are presented first with an error dialog that suggests the action failed. If they click the "Details" button, they then see a confirmation dialog that ultimately lets them complete the operation.

    I think a confirmation dialog is appropriate, but it should be presented to the user immediately and not hidden behind the initial error dialog.

  12. Hide "editable" so it's not accidentally selected

    A feature that allows editing from a shared link has been released.
    At the time of release, the settings are released as "View and Download and Editable" according to the Box Note settings.
    After the release, the setting was changed to "View and Download Available" in the tenant settings.
    Editable" is now displayed when attempting to configure shared links in a tenant environment after settings have been made.

    We would like it to take over the settings when they are not editable and hide the "editable" setting so that it is not accidentally selected.

    (In Japanese)
    共有リンクから編集する事ができる機能がリリースされています。
    リリース時点での設定はBox Noteの設定に準じて「表示とダウンロードおよび編集可能」の状態でリリースされています。
    リリース後にテナント設定で「表示およびダウンロード可能」に設定変更を行いました。…

  13. Comments with Links

    It would be ideal if links to Box content that are pasted into comments would default to open in a new browser tab, not replacing the current view of workflow needed while reading other comments.

  14. Add a home to the web UI

    Add Home to the menu in the Web UI above All Files and allow it to be the default we a user first logs in. It should be associated with what they set their home page to be (i.e. Favorites, Collections, etc.). When using a closed folder structure where users can't create files and folders on the All Files page it makes no sense to take them to this page by default because natural thought would be that they should be able to create on this page not need to navigate to another page.

  15. Disable expiration period change for public shared links only

    Currently it is possible to set up automatic expiration period for public shared links in Admin Console, which is an important security feature. However, users can extend the expiration period in Shared Link Settings. It would be more secure to disable expiration period extension for public shared links by users, while allowing them to change expiration periods for other types of shared links (company or collaborators only)

  17. Have Google Docs/Sheets/Slides be a choice for new content instead of MS Docs/Excel/PPT

    When you're in the folder view, at the top of the screen, Box presents the ability to click in to create a new Word Document or Excel Spreadsheet. We use G-Suite and it would be great to have Google's documents listed here.

  19. All owner vs. co-owner distinction in filtered search in web app

    All the distinct of owner vs. co-owner when searching for content that you own. The importance of this is for when an employee needs to leave a project or company, it can be difficult to make sure that all relevant information has been appropriately transferred to the right individuals without putting that burden on the admin or manager after the employee has departed.

  20. Export the accessing users area and their IP addresses to the access statistics reports

    It will be more convenient if the accessing users area and their IP addresses is exported in the access stats report.

    We can see the areas where the accessing users are and their IP addresses in "the access stats dialog box".
    However, when we export access statistics, we can't export the above information.

    As we know, the activity reports can help us as a way to see the user's operation history and IP address,
    But I think those information should be exported to the access statistics reports, not just displayed in the dialog box.
