  1. Box CLI: Don't require "type" on box trash:get.

    The standard box files:get command does not require a type (so you can actually pull the type by using the get.
    The Trash version of this command requires a type. This means that you have to basically try all three types in order to know which restore command to use (or any other trash command). If you could simply "get" the type, it would make things much easier, and more consistent.

  3. collaborate at "all files/root" level

    It would be nice if you could add a collaborator at the "all files" or root level, so that they would have access to any future folders created. For example we have folders created for each year and now we have to make sure we remember to add collaborators to the next years folder when it gets created. Versus if we had collaboration at the root level they would automatically be included when the next years folder is created.

  5. Rethink how customer feedback is handled for support tickets

    I open A LOT of support tickets with Box as I'm the primary escalation point for support in my enterprise.

    After every Box support ticket is solved and closed by the Box tech, I get an automated "how did we do" survey email.

    I get that you guys want customer feedback but forcing it down customers' throats for EVERY ticket that is solved is not the right approach. They just become repetitive and get to the point of being annoying.

    I've found a solution to get around this annoyance by creating rules to scan for common subject line text and…

  6. Please create a BoxCLI that can be used by general users.

    Currently, the BoxCLI is only available to administrators.
    We have received requests from non-administrative Box users to do their own work from the command line.
    This is a very strong request.
    Please create a BoxCLI that can be used by general users.

  7. If Box can have a feature for contents from Box be easily migrate to our Company's Share Point site as archival items, that will be helpful.

    The documents and photos for our existing stores are no longer needed to be shared with any outside vendors. We would like to migrate and archive those information within our company's share point site. Currently Box doesn't have that a feature for a easy migration. Instead, items will need to be downloaded as a zip file first. It takes time and the process is tedious. If Box can have a migrate feature that can allow the Admin to move Box content back to our desire Share Point site, that will be very helpful.. don't you all think?

  8. Improve overall support response times

    Overall support response times for Box standard support have been terrible as of late. I understand that most staff are working from home but this does not justify >3 day response times on tickets where functionality within your products is broken and is hindering productivity.

    Did you fire half of your support staff?

  10. When copying a folder with File Requests configured within it, add an option to have the File Request configurations copied as well.

    We have a need to setup folders with File Request features for our customers. When we do this manually, it takes a lot of time to set everything up as we need it. We'd like to be able to copy a folder (along with its subfolders) and its File Request setup. This would make any existing setup, like a template, which we can simply copy and rename in preparation for another customer.

    Currently, we can only copy the folders with or without contents. But either action does not copy the File Request configurations in the source folder.

    Thanks for your…

  12. Please stop removing features and services for paying Personal Pro accounts; or give us the chance to upgrade without 3 users min

    I have been paying for Personal Pro since 2014. Since then I have been paying the same amount every month, and have had features and services removed.

    First was tracking file downloads/views. Then this week I lost the ability to make Custom URLs.

    When I asked about my options, I was told that I could upgrade to a Business account; but for that I'd need a minimum of 3 users. I am a freelancer and work by myself. I have no need to pay for 3 users when it's just me.

    I think it's completely unprofessional and unethical to not…

  15. Increase Basic upload limit during COVID-19 stay home mandate?

    At least during this crisis, could you allow for a much higher upload limit, say 1GB? Please? Your user interface is the very best for those who are unfamiliar with large file transfers and there are many people unfamiliar right now.

  16. layout for accepting custom terms of service needs improving for lower resolution screens

    I just had to change to another device, from my laptop, in order to make the "accept" button visible on a custom terms of service popup. Any click outside the popup dismissed it so scrolling didn't work to gain access to the button.

    The screen in question is 768 vertical resolution, so not too unusual, and there was a lot of unnecessary vertical white space on the popup that pushed the button off screen.
    Browser was Chrome on windows.

    Simply making this popup less high, or moving the button away from the lower corner, would enable a much better sign…

  17. Function to disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled in the "P

    We would like a function to disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled in the "Privacy" folder settings.

    If you invite multiple external collaborators, you don't want external people to detect who you are inviting.
    There is a function to hide collaborators, but if invited external users use comments, tasks, version history, it will be possible to see who is invited, so we would like to disable these functions I do.

  18. Provide a glossary?

    Seat, user, internal user, external user, collaborator, link sharer, editor, viewer, “inviting collaborators,” “sharing links,” and more - that's a LOT of jargon. How about providing a glossary of your terms for the uninitiated?

  19. Advance warning before password expiry

    Please add advance warning before password expiry.

    As of today, when password expires box disconnects you with no prior warning. Unsaved work may be lost, it may be an inconvenient time to reset password etc.

    It would be helpful if Box sends an advanced notice, allowing the user to reset password several days prior to final expiry .

  20. Select folders from hard drive to sync with box

    Rather than syncing to a separate Box folder on my desktop, I would an application that would make it able to flag folders and files that already exist on my hard drive. I would very much prefer to be able to open my Windows Explorer and right-click on a folder and make a selection that would automatically sync that folder from where it is in my hard drive to Box.
