  1. 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 can be viewed by "People in your company" and "Invited people only".
    Some end users think this is confusing.

    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、「会社のユーザー」と「招待されたユーザー」が閲覧可能です。
    これが紛らわしいというエンドユーザーがいます。

    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。

  2. I don't want to show only "Everyone who knows the link" in the tenant settings. I only want to see "Company Users" and "Invited Users Only".

    There are three types of shared links as follows
    All users who know the link
    Company users
    Invited users only

    Of these three types, the current tenant settings are as follows
    ・Show all three types
    ・Show only invited users
    The following two patterns are available.

    Please make it possible to set the following two types of settings instead of only showing "everyone who knows the link".
    Company users
    Invited users only

    The background of the request is that we want to create a folder that all users in the company who use Box can access.
    The reason for the request…

  3. Ability to save search filter conditions

    I would appreciate if the previous settings for contents filters could be saved so that I can call and use it when searching items with similar criteria.
    Frequently using the same condition to search files, so I think it could improve the work efficiency to use saved filter settings.

  4. First search with detaled contents filters

    Currently the initial search for Box items can be filtered by only three types of contents, then you can squeeze the first search results with more detailed filters, like tags or size etc.
    It would be better to be able to use those detailed filters from the beginning.

  5. Box Drive Bandwidth Usage - Can I pause or limit?

    "Every time my Box Drive is syncing large (200-500mb) files, it uses as much bandwidth as it can. While in the office, this was rarely an issue. But, working from home, the rest of my household notices very slow internet while I am syncing files. "

    Please add a feature that allows us to limit the bandwidth of Box Drive.

  7. Company Intranet Functionality

    Would be great if Box had a company intranet functionality similar to platforms like Simppler, Igloo, Claromentis, Jostle, etc... Many of them integrate with Box, but one stop shopping is always preferred. A digital workplace is so important now that so many are working remotely. Bringing all of our apps under one roof (e.g., Box, Salesforce, Teams, Zoom, Yammer...), giving employees a portal/hub to go every morning to improve communication, lighten the inbox, providing a place to hold not only our knowledge but our policies, forms, news, process management for things like onboarding new hires, training staff, etc...

  10. Ability to suppress the sending of email notifications of Collaboration invitation acceptances

    We would like to set up the following notification emails so that we do not receive notifications from users within the company,

    as they are confused with notifications from users of other companies.

    Therefore, we would like to see the ability to suppress the sending of email notifications per collaborator's email domain.

     ・Collaboration invitation acceptances

    下記の通知メールについては、他社のユーザーからの通知と紛れてしまうため、

    社内のユーザーからの通知を受け取らないような設定を行いたい。
    そのため、共有相手のメールドメイン単位で送信を抑制できるよう機能を追加して欲しい。

     ・コラボレーションの招待の承諾メール通知

  11. Allow direct access in saving files from box for Outlook to Box Drive

    Currently the 'box for outlook' add-on for desktop outlook in only linked to box.com requiring passwords frequently.
    Please allow this to direct to 'box drive' , which will ease the process in saving attached files. When working on desktop PC's box drive is quicker to manage.

    Would also be helpful to have functions, such as link/enable collaboration including box notes via box drive will be added soon.

  12. Search API for Tags

    The Box search endpoint should be able to query based on Tags.

    The Web App is able to do this already:
    https://obfuscated.app.box.com/folder/0/search?tags=Select

    That search returns tagged results as expected.

    The postman API collection offers a search endpoint example with:
    https://{{api.box.com}}/2.0/search?query=sales

    An error occurs when changing that to:
    https://{{api.box.com}}/2.0/search?tags=Select

    This should more closely match the web ui.

  13. Multilingual file requests

    We need to be able to create file request forms in French and Spanish to send to folks who do not use English. While we can create some of the language in Spanish in designing the file request, all the instructions, help and error messages remain in English, which won't help our users.

  16. Collaborator invitation "accepted" email notification

    Currently the default setting Account Settings > Sharing > Collaborating on Content is checked to automatically accept incoming collaboration invitations. I would like to request this setting be off by default as we've had many users ask why they receive an email immediately after inviting a collaborator and later found out that the person had never accepted the invite.

    It would also be helpful if there was a Date Accepted column added to the Collaborators page that allows you to see when the collaborator accepted the invite. Currently there is only a Date Added column.

    Thank you

  17. I want to download all files returned from a search

    I am searching for files spread through multiple folders and I want to download all the files that are the result of the search. The only way I've found is to keep scrolling down — again and again — until all the files are displayed, then select all and download.

    But, there are a lot of resulting files and the scrolling is going on forever.

    Is there a way to just have Box download all the files that fit a search?

  18. Taskbar icon overlay for Box Drive to indicate if there are any "Problem Items"

    Currently for Box Drive (for Windows) you have to go into the program then Box Drive Settings to view if there are any problem files. Most users will never do this.

    Ideally there should be a red exclamation overlay on the taskbar icon if there are any problem files and they should be shown immediately when you click to open Box Drive.

    This would help end users to see that not all their files are syncing and then ideally also show them the local path of the problem file (that they can click on to access) AND also give them…

  20. Request to add the file type "yml" for yaml file to preview

    Currently, BOX preview supports the file type "yaml", but file type "yml" is not supported. The 3 characters file extension (it is same as file type) is general especially Windows environment, so I want to support the "yml" file on preview.
