  1. Enable ability to auto-organize folders (e.g. by Name, Size, Date Updated), rather than manually doing so, similar to my desktop experience

    Enable ability to auto-organize folders (e.g. by Name, Size, Date Updated), rather than manually doing so, similar to my desktop experience.

    Today, if I create a new folder, it does not automatically fall into the organization structure that I've applied to my folders (e.g. alphabetically). I'd like this to be done automatically.

  2. Enable ability to hide files or folders in my All Files view

    Enable ability to hide files or folders in my All Files view.

    These files and folders would still be searchable via the search bar, but they would be hidden from All Files.

    Also include the ability to review all files and folders that I've previously hidden in a separate "Hidden" tab, similar to how there is a "Recents" tab and "Notes" tab.

  4. Improve UI for folder structure drop-downs

    I find it visually confusing that the drop-down carat for my Folders is the same size, color, and thin-stroked icon as the "X" which deletes my folders. I can't tell you how many times I've inadvertently deleted a Favorite because my brain is expecting a 2nd drop-down menu. Some differentiation in color, size, position, treatment, etc. might help.

  6. Improve breadcrumbs/file paths

    Improve breadcrumb usability. As of now, only 1-3 file paths show before opening a folder. You have to click the btn-content button to view previous folders and/or navigate back to all files.

    Decreasing the size of the text (or maybe only showing 10-12 characters) would help with this.

  7. See folder MB/GB/TB size in the Size or "..." portion of my User Interface, rather than only the Details section

    See folder MB/GB/TB size in the Size or "..." portion of my User Interface, rather than only the Details section.

    Currently, the Details section is tucked away, and it is not intuitive.

  8. Improve Box File Request to include more fields (e.g. multiple File Description fields) and larger image uploads for the theme

    Improve Box File Request to include more fields and larger image uploads for the theme.

    Today, I can only add one File Description field and also my image at the top (for the theme) can only be 1.5 MB, which is an extremely tiny image file.

    Converting File Request into a fully functional SurveyMonkey or Google Forms competitor would be awesome!

  9. UI: Minimize menu bar of Box.com

    Minimize the size of the blue menu bar in Box.com.

    It takes up space cutting off file names.

  12. Box uses low contrast fonts which make reading messages difficult

    Emails from Box render with a grey font against a grey background in Outlook. Emails are unreadable.

    Fonts on the website are low contrast making it hard to read.

  14. Ability to hide the name of the user who uploaded the document./資料をアップロードしたユーザーの名前を非表示にする機能

    Please make it possible to hide the name of the user who uploaded the folder or file.
    We would like to be able to customize each folder so that only the owner or co-owner can see the name of the user who uploaded it.

    (In Japanese)
    フォルダやファイルをアップロードしたユーザーの名前を非表示にする事ができるような機能を作ってほしい。
    フォルダ単位などで所有者及び共同所有者以外はアップロードをしたユーザーの名前が見えないといったようなカスタマイズができるようにしてほしい。

  15. Ability to edit the way Box Looks

    Is box changing the way it looks constantly ? I don't like the changes and would prefer the choice to pick the way the program displays on my screen and would also like to rename my Favorite Tabs to what I want them to say not what the file name is.

  16. Change order of the buttons in web interface

    Putting the "Trash" and "Download" buttons right next to each other in the web interface is a recipe for disaster. About 5 times a day I accidentally click trash instead of download.

  18. UI usefulness and flexibility

    Concerning your UI, your lists should be more manageable. Why is it for instance that on the Relay menu you can only sort by the Workflow name. What if I want to sort by the user so I can more easily find workflows created by a specific user. Same is true for the list of managed users, there should be more fields on the list such as Date Created, Created By, and Status. Your reporting module also needs more flexibility in the reports an admin can create.

  19. Usability of action icon

    I am using box with google chrome. I always use action icon, dots right side of each file, to download a file, but I cannot select download when browser for box is fitted to main display of laptop because actions are pop-up to upside of a display and cannot be seen every actions.
    It is not happened if I see box with second display which is bigger than main one. It must be fixed.

  20. Customize Your Account's Branding | Menu Text Color

    Unfortunately you can not change the text color of the navigation/menu box on the left with "Customize Your Account's Branding".

    For example: our brand color is a dark green and box.com automatically determine the text color to a dark grey. It looks very dark and weird now, there is any contrast and it is not very reader friendly.

    The ideal thing here would be to make the text white, such as on the navigation/menu box from the admin console page, a dark gray background with white text.

    It would be very helpful to add another option in the "Customize Your…
