  2. Enhancements to Box Search Results – both END-USERS & BOX ADMIN

    Export of Box Search Results to csv – END-USERS & BOX ADMIN
    Background:
    • There are two methods of searching content in Box, for end-users
    o Box Drive – limited information
    o Box Web – more detailed

    • Box end-user’s Web Search results, have two views
    o List view
    o Grid view

    • Box Admins have Content Manager to search for content

    Enhancements:
    o Both end-users and Box Admins search results should both be enhanced

    END-USERS Search Results:
    • Box search results should CONTINUE to:
    o exclude content in Personal user folders
    o offer existing filters, but include NEW filters…

  4. Box search filters - ability to select bookmarks

    Without any filters (ie not selected Files or Folders), the Box Web Search results INCLUDE bookmarks matching the word/string selected in the search.

    HOWEVER, if a user wishes to isolate only the bookmarks listed in the results, THEY CANNOT.

    Bookmarks ARE a Box type I would argue, therefore the 'Type' filter should list 'Bookmarks' amongst the other types listed (to search for these only), as well as CONTINUING to display Bookmarks in results of 'Any type'

    Whilst it is recognised that bookmarks may be to both FILES and FOLDERS (inside and outside of Box), this should not be preventing them…

  5. Content owners to be searchable even if they own more than 1 million items

    Currently, Box's search function becomes unstable when the owner of the content you want to check owns more than 1 million pieces of content,
    making it impossible to hit the file correctly. It takes a huge amount of time to check the number of contents of the owner of the content to be confirmed each time in order to perform a file search correctly,
    which affects business operations. Please improve the search function so that it can be used correctly even if the content you want to check has more than 1 million owners

    (日本語)
    現在Boxの検索機能は確認されたいコンテンツの所有者が100万コンテンツ以上所有している場合、ファイル検索の動作が不安定になり正常にヒットできません。
    正しくファイル検索を行う為に確認されたいコンテンツの所有者のコンテンツ数を都度確認するのは膨大な時間がかかり業務に影響がございます。
    確認されたいコンテンツの所有者が100万以上所有されていても正しく検索機能が使えるよう機能改善をお願いします。

  6. Ability to set "Updated" as default in search results

    Search results can be sorted by "relevance" or "Updated".
    However, the default is "Relevance".
    Since "Updated" is used more frequently than "Relevance", please implement the ability to specify the default on the user side or in the tenant settings.

    検索結果は、「関連度順」または「更新日」に並び替えることが可能です。
    しかし、デフォルトは「関連度順」になっています。
    「関連度順」よりも「更新日」を頻繁に利用するため、ユーザー側やテナント設定でデフォルトを指定できる機能を実装してください。

  7. Add keyword conditions to search filter.

    Currently, possible to search by combining Boolean operators and keywords, it is a hurdle for users to use without knowledge.
    It would be easier to search if the search filter had a narrowing criterion such as "includes ~" or " not include ~".

    (日本語)
    検索フィルタにキーワードの条件指定を追加する
    現在ブール演算子とキーワードを組み合わせることで検索することは可能ですが、知識がないとユーザーが使用するのはハードルが高いです。
    検索フィルタに”~を含む”、”~を含まない”のような絞り込み条件があればもっと簡単に検索ができます。

  8. Please implement the ability to check "Search only in this folder" on the search results screen.

    The search function has a check box that says Only search inside of THIS FOLDER.
    Sometimes we click the search button without checking this checkbox, and after the search results are displayed, we regret that we should have specified a folder to search.
    Thereafter, if we then decide to search within a particular folder by checking a checkbox, we have to go back to the original folder, which is time-consuming.
    Please implement the ability to select "Only search inside of THIS FOLDER" without having to return to the previous screen, even after the search results are displayed by clicking the…

  9. Please change the specification to recognize "AND" when a word is separated from another word by a space.

    In general, if we put a space between words when searching, Explorer, Google, etc., will do an "AND" search.
    However, in the case of Box's search function, the same operation will result in an "OR" search.
    Therefore, if we wish to use "AND" search, we must state "AND".

    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043696314
    >Using this operator is not necessary as we implicitly interpret multi-word queries as OR unless another supported Boolean term is used.

    To avoid user confusion, please change the specification to recognize "AND" when a word is separated from another word by a space, as is the case on other sites.

    一般的に、単語と単語の間にスペースを入れて検索すると、エクスプローラーやGoogleなどでは「AND」検索になります。…

  10. Please add some items to the search function so that users can specify the priority.

    The current search function displays files in order of relevance by default.
    However, it is sometimes difficult to find the file one wants to look for in order of relevance, which affects business operations.
    Please add some items to the search function so that users can specify the priority.
    For example, it would be great if it is possible to select files created by me, files updated by me, modified date, created date, ABC order, etc.

    現在の検索機能は、デフォルトで関連性の高い順にファイルを表示します。
    しかし、目的のファイルを関連性の高い順に探すことが困難な場合があり、業務に影響を及ぼしています。
    検索機能にいくつかの項目を追加し、ユーザーが優先順位を指定できるようにしてください。
    例えば、「自分が作成したファイル」「自分が更新したファイル」「更新日」「作成日」「ABC順」などが選択できれば嬉しいです。

  11. Please add the ability to sort by file size/file format (e.g., extension in ABC order).

    Currently, there are only a few sorting types that can be selected in the search function, making it difficult to find the information one wishes to search for.
    Please add the ability to sort by file size/file format (e.g., extension in ABC order).

    現在、検索機能で選択できる並べ替えの種類が少なく、検索したい情報が探しにくい。
    ファイルサイズ/ファイル形式(例:拡張子をABC順に並べる)でのソート機能を追加してください。

  12. Please display the time range (hh:mm:ss) in the update date column.

    When sorting search results by modified date, the time (hh:mm:ss) is not displayed in the modified date column.
    This makes it difficult to guess the time range and find the file in the search results if many files were updated on the same day.
    Please display the time range (hh:mm:ss) in the update date column.

    検索結果を更新日時でソートする場合、更新日時の列に時間(hh:mm:ss)が表示されません。
    このため、同じ日に多くのファイルが更新された場合、時間範囲を推測して検索結果からファイルを見つけることが困難です。
    更新日欄に時間範囲(hh:mm:ss)を表示してください。

  13. Display more text in search results

    I would like to have the paragraph or at least several lines on either side that contains the matched search term(s) displayed in search results. We have a significant number of documents that contain similar verbiage. Having more text from the document displayed in search results would allow users to identify relevant documents without having to open them. The API should also return the same amount of text.

  14. Search result print out

    When using the content search on BOX, there is no possibility to print out or uppload (for example in .xls) search result listings. The only method to list search results is to take screenshots which is a painstaking taks when you need to get a large listing.

    I think that this would be an appreciated feature to the search function on BOX.

  15. "search filter" "folder location" unselecting parent still requires to unselect all subfolders

    Asume, when running a search and selecting File Type "Folders" and an "owner", the search results delivers thousands of folders.
    Now I want to use the filter option to exclude a parent folder which I know has several hundred subfolders, but unselecting the parent folder does require me to sunselect all the subfolders inside of the parent folder one by one...
    This is not practical and unselecting a parent folder should also exclude all subfolders from that parent.
    Actually I had never seen it the way it is implemented in Box...

  16. Upgrade Search capability to be included on Fedramp High BOX Accounts

    It would be ideal to keep all of the power of search capability with the BOX Fedramp high accounts. You currently lose the search capability of searching within the first 1000 words in a document when you upgrade your account to Fedramp High.

    If there is a way to update the search capability for those fedramp high accounts to have encrypted search for the first 1000 words that would be ideal. It is one of the better features in the BOX system.

  17. Partial match search for email addresses to generate invitation candidates

    When inviting a user, when I enter an e-mail address or a kanji name, forward matching results in a list of candidates, but partial matching does not.
    I would like to be able to perform a partial match search.

    [In Japanese]
    ユーザー招待を招待するときにメールアドレスまたは漢字名を入力すると、前方一致している場合は候補が表示されるが部分一致だと候補に出てこない。
    部分一致検索ができるようにしてほしい

  18. We would like the ability to search by "items I have deleted" in the trash.

    When searching for items in the Box recycle bin, the "Search only in recycle bin" function will search for items in the entire recycle bin.
    However, if there are a large number of items in the recycle bin, it will take time to search for the needed item.
    Please add the ability to search by "items I deleted".

    Boxのごみ箱に入ったアイテムを検索する際、「ごみ箱内のみを検索」機能を利用すると、ごみ箱内全体のアイテムが検索されます。
    しかし、ごみ箱にアイテムが大量にある場合、必要なアイテムを検索するのに時間がかかってしまいます。
    「自分が削除した項目」から検索する機能を追加してください。

  19. Search function - update date of the property data held by the document as a search condition.

    The current full-text search function searches for the date of uploading to Box,
    But I want to use the update date of the property data held by the document as a search condition.

    現在の全文検索機能では、Boxにアップロードした日が検索対象となるが、
    ドキュメントが保持するプロパティデータの更新日を検索条件の対象としたい。
