  1. share link permission to group

    It would be great if we can add a four option as a share link permission to "Group Only" so I can share it to the users who belong to my group.

  2. Let user disable shortcut top menu () or load shortcut menu before files listing

    Hi everyone,

    whenever we user move from one folder to the next, using the web app in a browser, the page load is delayed by the shortcut menu on top. This shortcut menu displays buttons for [Upload][Folder][Word Document][Excel Spreasheet].

    The current implementation is sooo annoying, since these four buttons are loaded on page and after the files listing in the directory. Unfortunately this shifts the file list of the directory down on the page each time.

    This shifting down the file listing on the page is so annoying for browsing directories, since in that time one can't aim for clicking…

  3. View the modification time of files in the box.com web interface (currently only the date is shown)

    I would like to see a file modification time (instead of just the date) on the box web app.

  4. Improve accessibility to make sure screen readers work while limiting downloads

    There is gap in the product today relating to voice over tools with specifically only shared links with preview only privileges and collaboration with previewer only privileges and lower. The gap is that the html text is suppressed.

    We need to limit downloads via shared link or using Previewer access while making sure individuals who need screen readers are not denied access.

  5. Metadata Templates for External Collaborators

    There is no way for external collaborators to add metadata templates to folders and files. If templates are added for them, they can edit the templates, but they are unable to add the templates themselves.

    Allowing external collaborators to add metadata templates on their own would be beneficial to enable collaboration that leverages metadata.

    An example use case is photographers who use our Box environment to share image assets with us and would be the best people to classify the images.

  7. Addition of a function to confirm whether or not to overwrite a file with the same name if it exists in the destination folder when a file w

    When copying a file from another folder in a Box, if the destination folder contains a file with the same name, a message will appear asking if the file should be overwritten.
    The message "There is a file with the same name, do you want to overwrite it? and if the user selects "Yes", the file can be overwritten.

    Currently, the process is: "Add (1) to the end of the copied file"⇒ "Rename the file that already exists" ⇒ "Remove (1) from the end of the copied file".
    However, it is not possible to manage the version history as a…

  8. Ability to color code folders per agency within an Enterprise account while in the web portal view.

    To clarify/differentiate different agencies/companies under our main Enterprise, we would love to have the ability to apply color coding to folders in order to make it easier for those individuals who have access to multiple companies.

    Thank you!

  9. Box Embed Should Support Additional Query String Parameters to Show/Hide Content

    Box Embed currently uses query string parameters to show/hide certain content, for example "showParentPath" and "showItemFeedActions". For our use-case, we would benefit greatly from expanding the supported query string parameters to hide additional elements from the iframe. Examples include the ability to hide the filename with dropdown menu (including the All Files and Folders hyperlink), the "Download" and "Share" buttons, the arrows that let you navigate between recently viewed files, and the "X" button that allows you to close out of the currently viewed document and be returned to the "All Files and Folders" view.

    By supporting additional boolean query…

  11. Save Sorting Preferences

    When using Box in-browser, create a setting to change the default sorting preference. For example, so you can make the default sorting for all folders Name, Ascending. This is not currently an option and means every time you open a folder you need to manually resort it, as the default sorting is always set to Updated, Ascending.

  12. Include HTTP Last-Modified / Current Version Header of Direct Link

    When you as a web client access to the direct link to a file in Box, the HTTP server responds only
    {...,

    Expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT,

    which does not include "Last-Modified" information.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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".

  17. 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。

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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
