  2. Create the folder settings that allows only owners to create subfolders

    <We want you to add a feature to the folder settings that "only owners can create subfolders">
    By adding this feature, we can prohibit the creation of folders while granting invitation rights.
    This will prevent collaborators with co-owner and lower permissions from creating folders, which will prevent unnecessary subfolders from being created and will be easier to control.

    <フォルダの設定に「サブフォルダを作成できるのは所有者のみ」という設定を追加してほしい>
    この機能を追加することで、招待権限を与えつつフォルダの作成を禁止することができます。
    これにより共同所有者以下の権限をもつコラボレータはフォルダを作成することができなくなるため、不要なサブフォルダの作成ができなくなり統制がしやすくなります。

  4. Specify a dynamic port for "OAuth 2.0 Redirect URI”

    Following the "LoopbackInterfaceRedirection" specification described in "RFC 8252 OAuth 2.0 for Native Apps", I would like to configure Box to receive the authentication code on an unused free port on Windows and send it to the Box custom app configuration screen (https://app .box.).
    However, it is not possible to specify a dynamic port for the "OAuth 2.0 Redirect URI" in the Box custom app configuration screen (developers/console/app/xxxx/configuration).
    I would like you to specify the dynamic port as per the specification of "LoopbackInterfaceRedirection" described in "RFC 8252 OAuth 2.0 for Native Apps".

  5. Enhance Box for Gmail attachments, to show recent files.

    When attaching a file I just worked on, I often need to click through five or more pages of alpha-sorted folders to find the file I want. Recents don't always populate as I would expect. Could we have a toggle for the folder view to sort by Recents OR Alphabetical, especially in Favorites? Or make the default sort by most recent first for all views?

  6. Embedded Widget Video or Link Video

    For Videos that are Tagged for View Only (Embedded or Link) types... Remove the Log in and Sign Up options on the Top Right of the Video Player. My goal is to eliminate the possible Move away from my Web Page that is presenting the Video so that I can take full advantage of my Visitor's presence.

  7. Shared Link Dashboard

    Customers want to have the ability for a user to see and manage a dashboard of all the shared links they own. Admins should be able to get a global view within the tenant. The dashboard should show if a link is public or has an expiration date and allow the user to modify it as such.

  8. Improved messaging for "Share" dialog box and handling of Links

    I have been using Box for a couple of years and still find the Share function and creation of Links very confusing and non-intuitive. For example, what are "Invited People?" and how are they different than 'People with the Link?" Why have 2 different places to copy the link? One is on the first dialog box and it appears that one takes the viewer to Box.com and they can view or download the file, but then if you click on "Link Settings" adifferent dialog box opens and there is another link you can copy. This one says Direct Link above…

  9. Add file count to Folder Properties

    Folder properties on browser based app should display the number of files in the folder. We use Box for photoshoot asset sharing while still in production (before moving to our DAM) and it's really a pain to verify file count.

  10. Ability to have Automatic sorting enabled post file rename

    It would be nice to have Box simply update a name after the file has been renamed. As of right now, it's difficult to start on a folder renaming image files, closing out, then coming back in and all of the files have been automatically sorted alphabetically, which is a nightmare for images that have ascending or descending filenames. If we could just save changes as-is and have everything still in place when we log back in after closing out of the folder, that would be very useful so that one could simply pick back up where they left off.

  12. Templates for Comments

    When someone sends me a document I did not ask for ... I want to know three things ... what is it ... why are you sending this to me ... and what, if anything, do you want me to do with it ...? Would be nice if I could create a template for comments, like we have in notes, where someone could select a custom template (like the one I just described) and answer it in the comments section of a document.

  16. Onboarding - Typo on account setup page

    Currently, the onboarding setup flow account creation page contains a typo.

    The page title is "Setup your Box account | Powered by Box" but it should be "Set up your Box account | Powered by Box" instead. This is because the word "setup" is a noun and "set up" is a verb.

    https://app.box.com/onboarding/setupflow

    Example of Incorrect Usage: A user wants to setup their account.
    Example of Correct Usage: A user wants to set up their account.

    Please fix this as this is a user-facing component.

  18. Enable someone to invite others to edit a file or folder through a Shared Link, NOT as a Collaborator

    Enable someone to invite others to edit a file or folder through a Shared Link, NOT as a Collaborator.

    Currently, I can invite someone to edit my files/folders as a collaborator, but I cannot invite them to edit my files/folders through a Shared Link.

    Google Workspace offers this.

  20. Collect user info when a box link is shared with non-box users

    The goal is to require non-box users enter their first, last name and email before accessing a Box shared link set to permission "People with the link".

    I.E, user will click on the link, re-direct to a sign up page requiring first, last name and email. After submitted they are routed to the training videos hosted on Box.
