  1. Drag and Drop documents from collections to different folders

    Hey!

    I keep frequently used document templates in my collections, and it would be great to drag them from the left sidebar and drop them into the current folder I am viewing.

    If I want to copy a document template that is in my collections sidebar to a folder, I have to click into the document and then navigate to copy/move and then find the folder I was just in and select copy.

    I hope this makes sense, but happy to discuss it further.

  2. Publish Box Collections to Users and Groups

    Admins need a way to publish pre-defined collections to Users / Groups . Its also necessary to make these collections visible in Box Drive App.

  3. Have a personalized name for a shared file or folder

    It would be great if we could apply a tag, or rename a file or folder to something private to the user rather than what the original owner named the file.
    Today we can move those items into Collections to manage them with our own naming, but that doesn't resolve the issue of individual files or folders with ambiguous names.

    For example: I need to track certain files that a bunch of different teams are working on as part of "Company Project 1". I don't need to see everything the teams are doing, so they don't grant me access to…

  4. Improved the operation of the expand/reduce/delete buttons in My Collection./マイコレクションの展開・縮小・削除ボタンの誤操作改善

    The "V" button to expand My Collection is in the same position as the "X" button to delete it from the collection, which often leads to accidental deletion of links from My Collection.
    The "V" button to expand the collection is in the same position as the "X" button to delete it from the collection. If you click the "X" button, you will be prompted to confirm whether you want to delete the link or not.

    (In Japanese)
    マイコレクションを展開する「V」ボタンを、コレクションから削除する「×」ボタンが同じ位置にあるため、良く間違ってマイコレクションからリンクを消してしまう誤操作があります。
    「×」ではなくゴミ箱のマークに変更する。「×」をクリックした場合、削除するか確認画面を表示するなどの改定を希望します。

  5. Better workflows for organizing content

    A colleague of mine works in an a department we'll call "DepartmentX" in a larger organization. Within other departments in the org they create a "DepartmentX" folder and share that to my colleage's box account.

    My colleague now has several "DepartmentX" folders and cannot at a glance see where they are from.

    In the initial view in Box and even on BoxDrive the "root" is polluted with other people's stuff and it is not possible to organize that into sub folders that are meaningful.

    If a user tries to drag a shared-folder into a folder they created Box attempts to…

  6. collections available in modal windows

    Everywhere that uses a modal window should surface collections. For example in Teams adding a file to a chat to share, modal window appears. Show collections.

    Another example - When creating a workflow and then using the file picker modal window appears. Show collections.

    Collections should be everywhere, it is a killer feature that would get more use if you could rely on every interaction with box showing collections. (otherwise it makes using box more difficult remembering where content is)

  7. Search Box Collections

    We think it would be great to be able to create a Collection of specific folders. Then utilize a Collection only Search. It would be great to even include it as a Metadata option. Allowing users to search across collections via a Collection Specific Metadata Template.

  8. Collections items are not allowed to be dragged and dropped onto Trush.

    Users can drag and drop folders and files registered in "My Collections" and "Favorites" to "Trush".
    In this case, the folders and files will be moved to Trush.
    On the other hand, the user recognizes that this operation unregisters "My Collections" and "Favorites".
    This difference in perception caused operational problems.
    A user has moved a folder containing tens of thousands of files from "My Collection" to Trush, which has stopped the business of that person.
    My request is:
    Folders and files displayed in "My Collections" and "Favorites" are prohibited from being moved to Trush by drag and drop.

  9. Nested folders

    With the current collections capability, it looks like collections don’t have any organization within them. If you wanted to organize things into “folders” within your projects you’d have to title collections all at the top level with a naming that implied a hierarchy in order to map shared items into groupings one layer of organization down. Something like:

    Collections:
    Project1-folder1
    Project1-folder2
    Project1-folder3
    Project2-folder1

    I would have preferred to build an arbitrary folder tree and place shared items into specific places in my folder hierarchy.

    Obviously it would be more useful if this organization was available in Box Drive too.

  10. Save a Search Query as a Collection

    When you search, have an option to save the search query as a Collection that then gets dynamically updated.

    Good use case: search query for "Folders Created Today" and save that as a Collection (or some other entity in Box).

    Other platforms do this with search already and users enjoy it!

  11. Add folder shared with all people in my company to favorites and collection

    Hi Box Team,

    When I share a folder with all people in my company, then my colleagues can access the folder with the link but they cannot add the folder to their favorites or collections. It would be great if folders shared with people in my company can be added to collections or favorites by my colleagues.

    Regards Nils

  12. Sorting Collections.

    When using "Collections", I want to change the order of them. It would be nice if the user could freely sort the collections. This makes the box easier to use.

    Thank you for your feedback. Allowing more than one collection expanded in the left sidebar might result in negative performance impact, so we have decided to limit it to one collection at a time. As we continue to make improvements to our systems, we will keep this request in mind.

  14. Swipe through photos in the Favourites section.

    We used to be able to swipe through photo's in "favourites" in iOS (iPhone) but this feature has now gone. Can it be brought back?

  15. I want the new Collections to all stay open, unless I close them

    I don't want the other Collections to automatically toggle closed on the sidebar when I choose another one. I want the choice to close it.

  16. Collections Page as My Homepage

    So as designed, I think "My Collections page" is underutilized. Sure here is the only place you can edit/delete your collections and their titles...but this would be a wonderful place to drive users too as their homepage. Obviously, you all thought of that as well since it can be selected as "My Homepage" but right now I think a lot of folks won't want to because there isn't enough useful information on the basic page.

    Please allow the user to better configure this page or at least have the collections unfurled/unnested. So that each time they go to this page…

  17. We want the update date item shown in the file list to be the date and time of the update.

    In the order in which they appear on the file list screen, there is an item called "Updated".
    We would like this to include the "Date and Time" of the update, not just the "Date" of the update.

    Also, the most recently updated items will be listed as "today" or "yesterday" as the date of the update, but we would like to see this listed with the official date.

    ファイル一覧画面で表示される順番に、「更新日」という項目があります。
    これには、更新日の「日付」だけではなく、更新日の「日時」も含めて記載してほしいと思います。

    また、最近更新されたものは、更新日が「今日」「昨日」と表示されますが、これは正式な日付で表示してほしいです。

  18. collections folder is cumbersome and awkward, very hard to use

    My favorites randomly auto populate in the left margin when I open box. My work efficiency is greatly affected by having to click on the collections folder and wait for a new screen then dig through the page to find the bookmark favorite that I want. The "old way" of displaying my favorites had no issues and the order in which my favorites were organized worked well for me. Please find a way to revert back to my favorites always being displayed in the left margin.

  19. A Custom Collection Portal Page

    Business goal: The ability to share a visual customized page (like a web page) with various Box artifacts and other modules (described below) with peers, customers, team members, etc. Use cases:

    1. A project collaboration page
    2. Policies and procedures page
    3. Manuals and instruction page
    4. Product information site
    5. Business Development collaboration site
    6. Various

    Major Feature
    The ability to create a blank page and drop multiple "favorites" on the page. In essence, it is similar to sharing a "collection" of Box favorites, but a more visually appealing view. Other features of this custom portal page:

    1. Ability to filter the contents of the favorites…

  20. The ability to name the title of a collection

    I have a number of folders that were invited by external users (grey folders) and those folders are typically named such as "shared folder" and it is often difficult to identify which organization I am invited by. So I would like to organize those folders by naming when collection.
