  1. Update the layout of My Collection

    Under My Collections, please change the layout of the toggle button that pops open Collections folders so that it's not the exact same size/shape/location/color as the "X" boxes on individual favorites. More than once, when a page loads slowly, I've gone to expand a Collection and accidentally hit an "X" and wiped out an important favorite from my sidebar!

  2. Add a "request to share with me" button to Box folders

    Lets say that a folder has Mary as the owner and Bob as the co-owner permissions wise. I would like a button that any other Box user can click on (for example a 'request permission' button) which when clicked, Mary and Bob will receive an email informing them that a user has requested viewer/editor rights for the folder (the user can select what permissions they are asking for). Mary or Bob can easily click an approve or a decline button from the email to grant or deny the access.

  3. Allow me to set default sorting to alphabetical anywhere

    Please, pretty please — allow me to set default sort of folder contents to alphabetical within a folder, for any folder. Should be an option under Settings for the folder.

    I have folders numbered for steps in a publication process, and I have to click "Name" every single *#$% time I display the folder list because it defaults to most recent. I may need to access any step in the process at any point in time; recent is USELESS to me. This is sooooo cognitively draining because I am touching dozens to 100s of files a day.

    Note: this is…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  16. 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.

  18. 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)

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
