  1. Allow for native editing of video content in Box

    This is a pretty difficult ask but one of my customer has to migrate their video content stored in Box into another cloud app that's focused on video editing. That's alot of content to move and my AE was wondering if we could be better positioned to help them if we offered the ability to do some editing of video in Box.

  2. Prevent text files from being truncated in Preview Mode

    When working with Box, we gather data which we lock down using the classification tooling within Box. This prevents engineers from downloading sensitive or customer data to their personal workstations or unauthorised areas and is generally very useful.

    However a main use case for us is allowing engineers to read through very verbose (long) log files which our product generates. When a customer provides us with these log files, we cannot always read important information, as box will truncate the view of these long files and inform the user that they should download the file to read it in it's…

  3. Compatibility with MadCap Flare PDF Output (Fix copy/paste in preview mode)

    In Box.com preview mode of a PDF that was built via MadCap Flare, when you copy text and paste it somewhere, it removes all of the spaces in the text and makes it one big string (see example below). The copy/paste feature works fine from PDFs built out of InDesign and in all downloaded PDFs. This has been a common issue for our Support reps who want to simply copy/paste text from a previewed product documentation PDF into a Support case without having to download it each time.

    For example:
    TheCopyReturnItem(s)WizardontheTaxReturnswindowinCorptaxallowsyoutoquicklycopyanexistingtaxreturnitemandcreatethesamecalculationforadifferententityorforalloftheentitieswithinagroup

    MadCap Flare is a widely used authoring tool for…

  4. I would like to be able to play video and audio when previewing.

    I would like to be able to play video and audio when previewing.
    For security reasons, I would like to share video and audio without allowing external users to download them.
    This will be a useful feature for media users.

  5. Enable excalidraw on box

    minimal case: enable preview of excalidraw files. excalidraw is open source (MIT) and strongly draws attention to fast hand-drawn sketches done quickly for more and more people.

    optimal: include excalidraw capability editing online, store the file directly in box, enable inline editing similar to office documents.

  6. Native to Box Music Player integration

    We would like a native-to-Box music player. Formerly, the 'autoplay' function, when enabled on a music file such as MP3, would then cause all the remaining songs in a folder to play through, ie so you could listen through to a full album instead of needing to press 'play' on each track one by one. Now that function is gone. But we'd like to see a better solution in general for listening to music files we own.

    We store an archive of music albums for our organization and this would definitely make accessing them more practical. Right now, we have…

  8. Download selected version when preview unavailable

    Download currently selected version in main window when preview is unavailable on Box.com

    Presently, if the preview is unavailable when reviewing file versions, there is a "Preview is unavailable" message and a "Download" button appears there, but it only downloads the current (latest) version, not the version selected in the side bar.

    While the file is available in the side bar with the ellipses, the download button does not indicate that is will only download the latest version, and not the version selected (but not preview able) in the side. This has caused confusion with our employees as our large…

  9. I want you to make the preview of Excel easier to see

    Excel is hard to see the preview.
    The page is split unnaturally.
    For example, in the case of Google Sheets, it looks the same whether it is Read Only or editable.
    In the same way, I want you to improve it so that it looks the same regardless of whether it is Read Only or edit OK.

    エクセルがプレビューが見にくい。
    不自然にページが分割される。

    例えばGoogleスプレッドシートの場合、Read Onlyでも編集OKでも、見た目は変わらない。
    同じように、Read Onlyでも編集OKでも、見た目は同じになるように改善して欲しい。

  10. Gestures for jump 10 seconds rewind/forward in video player

    Please implement in video player some gestures for jump 10 seconds rewind/forward, eg double tap on sides like in youtube and many other apps. Because when I watch a long video, it's very hard to jump a little back-forward via tabs on the scroll bar, but this action (especially back) is needed very often, when I listen to the speech.

  11. Highlight Text and Translate the word

    Inside the preview, it would be great when I highlight a text in a file, it would automatically translate the word into a language thats is set on the browser. For example highlighting an English word and translating it into Japanese.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

  12. Data files that are textual are not identified as text for preview

    I'd LOVE for the ability at the enterprise level to be able to say that ANY file with a given extension should be previewed as if it were this other extension. This would both add extensions as WELL as override the Box.com default content type logic.

    examples:

    myCustomersOrderData.edi should be previewed as is it were a text file, so .edi as .txt

    .json as .txt
    .funky as .md

    I say at the enterprise level so this works for manually uploaded files. However, if an appropriate attribute could be sent in the file upload|modify|version APIs, that would be better than nothing.

  13. Add the ability for previewer/uploader, viewer, and previewer to preview video files that contain watermarks.

    Currently, due to the specifications in the following article, previewer/uploader, viewer, and previewer cannot preview watermark enabled video files from Box.


    Box Notes, video, audio, flash, .msi, .exe, .zip, and 3D files do not support watermarking. Enabling this feature prevents previewer uploaders, viewers and previewers from viewing these file types.

    Watermarking Files:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044195253


    For company operations, when sharing video files with users outside the company, it is a rule to collaborate and share with users outside the company with previewer.
    Since there are many situations where we want to prohibit downloading and screenshotting, we don't want to be unable to…

  15. Please enable autoplay for multiple files in a folder

    You used to be able to enable autoplay for files in a box folder. Now, even if you click on "enable" for autoplay, it does not. Why????

  17. Correct the wording of 'Prior Versions'

    Your Website states that:
    The maximum number of prior file versions you can access corresponds to your Box account type:

    Personal Free - 1 Version

    This simply isn't true, and I have argued this in a ticket and with a live agent, but the statement implies you can access a prior version of your file.

    Definition of Prior is "earlier in time or order" so this makes your statement false as you cannot access anything but the CURRENT version in the Free version.

    I would suggest the wording:
    The maximum number of file versions you can access corresponds to your…
