  1. 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。…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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)

  6. 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.

  7. Not inviting a user on a single file via SFC when the user is already collaborated through group

    Currently, when single file collaboration (SFC) happens where an invited user is collaborated via Group, it doesn't catch the fact that the user already has an access permission

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Ability to Sort comment order by page

    When using Adobe Document Cloud, it keeps comments grouped on the same page versus oldest to newest. It's useful when reviewing one page at a time. Can we get a sort filter system that allows: by page, oldest, newest, commenter?

  11. Move the location of Welcome to Box pop up

    When I set the custom terms of service and a new user logs into Box for the first time, it is hidden by the "Welcome to Box" pop up. Could you please move the location of either one so that the new user can see the custom terms of service please?

  12. Update File Request Date range

    File Request Date selector should show a wider range of years when selecting from the dropdown.

    Currently it shows from 10 years in the past to 10 years in the future. This makes entering date of birth very difficult.

  13. When moving / copying a file in the web app, allow me to paste a URL for a destination folder

    I often interact with box folders via the web app (people send me links to specific files). When moving around files, I find it EXTREMELY HARD to find the destination folder that I want. This especially frustrating when I have that same folder open in a different tab.

    In the move/copy dialog, I'd love to be able to paste the URL of a folder, and have box automatically jump to that destination. Searching for "Status Updates" is useless, if, when I search, I see all "Status Update" folders I have access to, and not the one tucked under "Project Pineapple"…

  14. Prioritize "Open with" on document "..."

    Reduce the list of when you click the "..." on a document so "Open with" is always shown on the screen. Currently, when you click the "..." next to a specific file it opens a whole list of options from which to choose, including "Open With" which I use a lot. However, recently the list length was increased and now the "Open with," probably the most used function, is pushed off the top of my screen - very annoying. On another note, allow me to post a pic here showing the issue...

  15. File counts do not refresh often enough for our needs

    The file counts within the webapp do not update regularly enough.

    We need to be able to see if there are files in folders and if so, how many, without having to look inside each folder.

  16. Accurate display of number of files

    Fixed the problem of inconsistent number of files

    Inconsistencies in the number of files can occur when large amounts of data are owned or moved for business purposes.
    There is a workaround for this in the support page, but it does not work in some cases.
    Even if we can confirm the exact number of items in the report, the size may differ due to data inconsistencies.
    We feel that it is inconvenient for business use to not be able to accurately grasp the number of data.
    Please fix the inconsistency of the number of files.
