  2. data loss in mobile applications

    Box is currently unable to save any new files directly from office mobile applications to Box fileserver locations, and the files disappear into the void when attempting to do so. After a few wasted hours of troubleshooting Senior Box Support indicated this is a result from a lack of support for mobile co-authoring functionality. An error message at the absolute bare minimum to instruct users to only save data locally would be the expectation when a file cannot be saved before data loss occurs.

  3. Outlook attach from box sort preference

    When using the 'Attach from Box ' feature in Outlook. I always want to see most recent items because it makes it easy to attach a link for a file that I have just worked on. I have to change how files are sorted every time to Name to Date: Newest to Oldest.

  5. Open PowerPoint Shows (.pps, .ppsx) in Box Web

    Box should recognise additional Microsoft Office file-extensions - particularly .pps and .ppsx - which when opened, immediately runs the Powerpoint Slide Show

    Currently, it is necessary to download instead, or keep as .ppt / .pptx - which would not run the Slide Show immediately, and would enable users to edit (unnecessarily)

  6. Microsoft Office

    When collaborating on Office documents shared via Box we're unable to track changes. It would be nice to have this enabled. Essentially the same functionality as if we were working within Sharepoint.

  8. Please allow us to set the default sort preference for individual folders.

    It is very frustrating, that the folders all default to descending order by file name. This should be able to be set for each folder.

  9. launching office pop up box

    Can you add an option to tick a box 'do not show this again' for the launching office pop up. I have to shut this so many times a day and it's totally pointless for a regular user.

  13. When inviting people, I would like to search not only by name but also by photo, department name, etc. Is there a way to do this?

    When making an invitation, please include not only your name and account.
    Linked to microsoft account etc., the account's photo and
    By making it possible to search by department, etc., it is more accurate.
    I think you will be able to receive an invitation.

  15. Box for Microsoft Office Co-Authoring for Password Protected Files

    Unfortunately, co-authoring option is not currently supported for password-protected files. Box have told me this is because the system considers the password protection as a lock.
    Therefore bringing it your attention to add this feature request.

    Also we are finding that co-authoring takes a lot long to open files and it is not as smooth as its made out to be.

  16. Do not create folder in "All Files" when a user already has access to a folder in higher hierarchy

    Everytime a Box folder is added to a Microsoft Teams team using the box plugin, or a user is invited to a box folder, the according folder appears in All files. We have a large number of teams and a lot of projects, so "All files" gets messed up quite quick. Box and the box plugin should check if a user already has access to a folder in the higher hierarchy. In this case the folder should not appear separately in "All Files".

  17. Shared Link creation doesn't automatically add user to folder when adding file in Box for Office in Outlook

    When adding a file to an email in Outlook and using the Box for Office integration to upload it to Box and create a shared link, you have the option to make the link visible to Invited Users Only. However, when doing this, it does not add all users as collaborators to the file so they can access the shared link. Ideally, the integration should add the users CC'd in the email ass collaborators if they are not collabed already so that they can access the Invited People only link

  18. Option to choose Can View or Can View and Download Outlook pop up

    Currently there is no option edit shared link permissions (between Can View, or Can View and Download, or Can View Download and Edit). In order to do this, a user has to go to box and make those settings changes. It would be a better user experience to be able to make those changes in the Box for Office Outlook UI directly.

  19. In Excel Preview - Ability to Sum up a total of a column

    Since we can already click on and highlight cells in an Excel file in Preview mode on Box, I would love the functionality of being able to highlight and get a Total (Sum) of cells that is displayed in Preview mode without having to Open or Download the file.

  20. Box for Outlook Add-in fixed to save emails as .msg

    When trying to save an email using the "Save to Box" Add-in, the only option is .eml. This was an old format for outlook express. Once an email is saved in this format, it cannot be opened in Outlook client. There needs to be an option for .msg. Using the File > Save As option allows you to change the extention, but that is extra steps. Outlook web will allow you to open the saved email, but you cannot save it as a .msg after the fact.
