  1. adding anchor link capability to Box Notes

    Hello. When creating a Table of Contents in Box Notes, it would be helpful to have an anchor links button/function for long pages, so readers don't have to scroll to find each section. Thanks!

  2. Email File Request Link from Box

    Add ability to email file request links directly from Box (similar to collaboration invites). This would allow customers to audit who sent out file request link/ when.

  3. Add “Do something after a certain period of time” option in outcome

    Accessing to some of our manual documents is strictly managed and we would like to delete these documents which are not effective anymore after a certain period of time (e.g. 1 day, 1 week, custom lengths etc.). If Relay is capable of this, we can streamline other systems that are currently implemented.

  4. Adding a granular sharing option for Annotations

    I would like to use annotations as a personal note. It would be great if an annotation is not shared with anyone by default and a user can choose an option to share/show it with collaborators.

  5. Use of iPad’s Markup for annotating. Box’s implementation of annotations is poor.

    iPads have a built in document markup function for annotating documents, it’s tragic that Box doesn’t permit this tool to function.

    My current work around is to copy the file to my iPad then use Markup to annotate my document, then finally copy the annotated document back into Bix.

  6. Set certain folders to default to searching only within that folder

    As an example, we have a Knowledgeable folder. When users go to that folder and search, I want to confine search to just that folder by default (most users won't want to tick the box).

  7. Take action on user based on Threat Detection Shield Rule

    Extending threat detection ALERTS to take action on a user's access would be very valuable. I've heard lots of customers request having a user's account deactivated if they access Box from a suspicious location. Right now, there is not a way to do this through the core Box application, it has to be done through custom scripting or with another tool.

  8. shared link expiry cannot be extended beyond the timeframe specified by the Box Admin

    Once administrators set an expiration policy of a certain time (i.e. 60 days), this policy could not be changed by end-users - expiry time of shared links. End users should not be able to extend the policy for more than the set expiry date.

  9. Change configuration shared links - expiration policy

    Currently it is possible to configure an expiry policy for shared links for a period of up to 10 years, the logic in which this option is programmed is contradictory in itself.

    Once this policy is implemented from the administration console, expecting that links can be removed/expired after a certain period of time in order to have more control and security over the shared content the end user can simply remove this setting (expiry policy) at the time they are creating their shared link.

    The end user is practically overwriting the configuration at the environment admin level.

  10. Add sender's email address to the "Mail All" collaborators functionality.

    Currently when a notification is sent via email through "Mail All" collaborators function, it does not include an email to the person who created the notification. It would be beneficial to add the sender's email address to this notification process for documentation purposes and validation. When the creator does not receive the email, they are reliant on other parties to forward the notification, which is not efficient.

  12. Web interface improvements

    Two things:
    1) Within the Box Web App, allow for the creation of a New Folder and other features when you "right-click" within the view area. Google Drive already has this.

    2) After clicking the "New" > "Folder", to create a new folder, a pop-up window appears. Please have the cursor automatically highlight the "Folder Name" field, so that you don't have to click within the text field first to type a name.

    These UI improvements will help with the overall experience. Thanks!

  14. Ability to logout and delete cache from Box Drive on OS reboot

    Currently, it is necessary to logout/login to clear the cache and errors, but this is troublesome.
    The burden of performing this operation on a regular basis is on the end user.

    It would be easier to use if the logout/deletion of the cache could be done on OS reboot.
    (If it automatically re-logon after restarting OS, that would be even better)

    現状ではキャッシュやエラーをクリアするためにログアウト/ログインする必要がありますが、これは手間がかかります。
    この操作を定期的に行うのはエンドユーザーに負担がかかってしまいます。

    OS の再起動時にログアウト/キャッシュの削除ができればより便利だと思います。
    (OS の再起動後に自動的に再ログオンするようになれば更に良いと思います。)

  15. Request about 'People in your company' for shared links

    There is a permission called "People in your company" for shared links.
    When a link is set to "People in your company", it actually can be viewed by "People in your company" AND by "Invited people" there as well.
    Some end users missed out the fact that those "invited people" would also be viewing it with the generated link.

    Please change the name of the item to "People in your company and Invited people only".

    ご要望:
    共有リンクの「会社のユーザー」という権限があります。
    「会社のユーザー」権限を設定した共有リンクは、実は「会社のユーザー」だけでなく「招待されたユーザー」も閲覧可能です。
    エンドユーザーによっては、この「招待されたユーザー」も生成された共有リンクで閲覧可能であることを見逃すことがあります。

    そのため、項目名を「会社のユーザーと招待されたユーザー」に変更して欲しいです。

  17. Add file path to macOS Box Drive search function

    Since macOS Finder will not search Box Drive by filename correctly, the only real way to search for files is using Box Drives built-in search function. This will successfully find a file, but it does not show you the path in the folder tree. Could you please add the containing folder and path in the search results box? Ideally the user would also be able to open a finder window directly to that containing folder directly from a click in the search results box.

    Thanks!

  18. Change Box Drive Storage Location

    I want to be able to move the storage location of Box Drive to something other than the C drive. The space is limiting. Most days accessing data from Box is not an issue but on days the internet goes down at the office or there is a power outage all work comes to a halt without access to files. I can't make all of my files available offline with Box Drive storing to the C drive. It would be nice to be able to have all of my files available in case of unforeseen circumstances. I would also be…

  20. Allow more capabilities in the Reports module

    It would really be nice if you would allow filtering on more than just a couple reports, and/or the ability for admin to create their own reports.

    For instance the Files and Folders report, I may not care to run a report on all files and folders, should be able to filter based on metadata or on just specific folders.
