  1. Warning about creating folders with invalid characters

    The web application does not currently warn users about creating folders with invalid characters. For example, if you create a folder name that ends in a period [.] via the web, that folder never comes down to the Box client on a Windows machine. This is a limitation of windows.

    However, other cloud providers WARN users before creating the folder in the first place and some even prevent the creation of the folder (Egnyte for instance).

    A warning of "The folder you are creating contains an invalid character that may not be visible to users on Windows machines" or something…

  2. Make scroll bar wider

    When viewing a CSV file via Box's web portal/app, would love to see the tiny thin scroll bars made wider. (This form won't let me upload a screenshot of exactly what I'm referring to).

  3. Option to remove visible file version tag

    We'd like the ability to hide the file version tag both from the list view and preview. The box version does not match up with our own versioning thus creating confusion for end users

  4. "Are you sure" pop-up when dragging & and dropping folders

    I'd like a pop-up message confirming if I'm sure to appear when trying to drag and drop folders on the web app. Especially in a GxP environment this is important to reduce risk of human error.

  5. Folder Lock from Web UI

    Currently, Folder Lock can be configured only through API. We would like to be able to configure it on Web UI, e.g. Folder Settings.
    Folder Lock function is very useful, but not used widely. Probably it's because API is not very friendly for some users.

  6. Sharing UI

    More clearly subdivide the "Sharing" panel between the upper "Invite People" section and the lower "Share Link" section. The minutely thin gray line between the two doesn't adequately differentiate the two options. New users will tend to complete both options when only one sharing method is needed.

  7. Add "Open in Box Drive" function

    Add an "Open in Box Drive" UI option for the web app.
    This solves the problem of identifying a file or folder in the web app, wanting to work on the file or folder in Box Drive, and needing to leave the Web App to navigate through several steps to find that file in Box Drive.

    Ideally this should only be active on hosts that have Box Drive installed; it could be not presented, or disabled, on other hosts.

    For hosts that have Box Drive installed, this would allow:
    1. When activated for a folder, that folder as presented by…

    Box Shared links, If it was currently disabled at Enterprise setting level. But, we want that feature to be enabled for One folder where we can shared to General Public, is there any option we can enable that shared link to one folder ? Box Shared Link should be enabled at folder level.

  9. Ability to filter recent files by file extension

    It would be great to be able to filter files in the Recent Files section by extension, access date, etc. Currently you can't sort anything. My use case was easy. I knew I had access one Excel file one week before but couldn't remember the name nor the real date. instead of scrolling in the whole list, I could have selected "Excel / spreadsheet file" to see only these files for a faster search.

  10. Ability to preview contents of the files contained in the zip file

    Box can list all the folders and files contained in the zip file, however it doesn't allow us to preview the contents of each files contained in the zip file.
    We need to download the zip file to preview the contents.

    It would be better to have ability to preview the contents of the each files so that we can complete our work within Box.

  11. Display folder path under file/folder listings

    For example, for a folder "Project 1" several levels down in the Box hierarchy, display the folder path under the folder name:

    Project 1
    All Files > Level 1 > Level 2 > Level 3 > Level 4

    The folder path would be in a font smaller than the folder name and a slightly muted colour compared to the folder name

  12. Default sort only savable from All files page

    The default file sort (name or last updated) can not be saved as a default. When refreshing the page it goes back to the last sort that you used on the "All Files" page.
    Similar to other online file sharing platforms, when you change teh default sort to name or last modified it saves that sort for all other folders. On Box.com if you change the default sort to by last modified on the All Files page it then applies that as the default sort for all other sub folders. I found this bug with Box support after entering a…

  13. Updated date and Uploaded date are not the same thing

    We would like to be able to retain the file updated date or modified date during file upload. Right now the updated date is the date file was uploaded which is not really the updated date and time from the local machine.

    This is very critical as updated date is very important to end users when migrating or uploading files to Box. Imaging thousands of files uploaded to Box all have the same uploaded date under Updated date column.

    Thank you!

  14. Leave the username on approval tasks intact even after account deletion

    It is hard to trace approval history on a file after the related users are deleted. This causes a lot of friction with customers. It would be better if all usernames would stay on approval tasks even after their respective accounts are deleted.

  15. URL to open folder or file by full English path name.

    Box allows me to create named folders and files. Box SHOULD allow me to use a URL to get there? The File ID is visually useless. Box should store the English name as an alias to the ID -- and allow this feature. I am astonished this wasn't a base product feature. I'm also astonished you haven't added it as it's clear in the feedback from others it's WANTED. Shame on Box for not providing this feature.

    In the meantime, I'll be forced to find another cloud-based file storage solution.

  16. Back Button Updates

    Could you update Box to have the Back button return you to the same spot you were at before you hit the Back button? Currently it takes you back to the top of the previous page you were on. When you have a list of 200 folders, its very cumbersome to have to scroll through the all the pages just to find where you left off.

  17. Enable Box Web column headings to be displayed when scrolling down beyond first page of content

    Currently, as soon as user scrolls down beyond first page of content, the column headings are lost.

    There should be a user-level configuration setting that enables the headings to remain on screen (similar to Excel where column headings can be frozen/displayed, despite scrolling down several pages of rows

  18. Box Web Sort (NAME and UPDATED) should INCLUDE Bookmarks

    Currently, sorting the content of a Box folder sorts the content for all but Bookmarks, then shows sorted Bookmarks below the other content - this happens for Sort by NAME and Sort by UPDATED.

    Users might reasonably expect that subfolders might be sorted first, and all other documents and bookmarks be sorted secondly - similarly to Windows File Explorer (which does this, where shortcuts are treated as documents and sorted along with other documents)

    I believe the reason that this may be happening is that [Mssrs Box] has omitted to record any modification made to bookmarks (yes, the name of…

  19. Improve Move operation to offer choices when destination folder already has file of same name

    Currently, if a number of files are selected to move to another location, if the destination location already has filename(s), Box simply advises that the moves for those files has 'Failed', and lists then 'already exists in the folder '....'

    Box should instead, like other products, offer a pop-up window, indicating the filenames, locations, dates last modified, (and additionally, if any files are signed), with the option for user to select/unselect file(s) to overwrite or ignore. Filenames selected/ticked would then be moved, together with other files where no match was found.

    To simply offer no choice, leaves the user knowing…

  20. Enable users to select alternative applications to open files with in Account Settings\Integrations, other than MS office - such as for imag

    The application used to open some filetypes is 'hard-wired'. Users are not offered option to select the application 'to open with'. For example, images can only be opened in MS Paint when opened from Box on Web.

    Box should either A) offer the option to select an application to open with (for applications where viewer shows content, or B) should refer to the PC/laptop's Settings\Default apps and use that application

    For example, Box displays a preview of an image (jpg/png) selected, but when Open button selected, only MS Paint is offered to open the file. The world has moved on…
