  1. Relay: Extend Collaboration as an action

    I would like to have "Extend Collaboration" as an option of "Action" in Relay.
    This is useful when a certain project is longer than the expiration set in the whole account.
    When it is known the finish date for that project, I would like to automatically extend the expiry date beforehand using Relay.

  2. Making Box Notes specific to Folders

    I use Box Notes as a running shared agenda with clients, however, it's difficult to switch between client's notes since they only allow for one default location to save notes. I try to save them directly in the folder the client is working out of.

    Could there be multiple save locations for notes for a specific folder? Or a way to assign it once created?

  3. Auto-open files when downloaded from Outlook to Box Drive

    Currently when one downloads files from Outlook to box drive on one's laptop/desktop, one has to then go to that folder using file explorer (often several clicks or using the quick access menu) to open the file and then editing it. It would be very useful to have an auto open feature once the file is downloaded. Similar features are already available while using say Gmail on the web browser or even downloading a file from WhatsApp's desktop app.

  4. I would like to see 4 hours added to the session duration section.

    I would like to see 4 hours added to the session duration section.

    【Current Specifications】
    In the current pull-down menu for session duration, there are only 8 hours after 2 hours.

    【background】
    We feel that the current 2 hours is too short and 8 hours is too long.
    We would like to increase the number of items for session duration to better meet the needs of users.

    (日本語)
    セッション持続時間の項目に4時間を追加して欲しい

    【現在の仕様】
    セッション持続期間が現在のプルダウンメニューでは、2時間の次は8時間しかありません。

    【背景】
    利用する中で現在の2時間では短く、8時間では長いと感じています。
    セッション持続期間の項目を増やすことで、利用者ニーズに細かく対応したいため。

  5. Open Box Drive in full screen mode

    1 - Box Drive Icon on the Task Bar should Open the Box Drive Search Tool, not the Bod Drive Folder in Windows Explorer.

    2 - The Box Drive application should open up on full-screen view, with the BOX Folders on the left (as in Windows Explorer) - With the Box Search Tool on the right. This will go a VERY LONG way to help new users to "get comfortable with" / transition to BOX!

  6. Need to be able to clip articles from the web and save into Box.

    The web clipper would need to be able to have various methods of clipping (full page, article, snippet..etc) similar to OneNote, Evernote, Google Keep. The capture would also need to retain the web address, date/time of capture. If there are images within the article, those would need to be flattened so that the images are retained vs becoming red Xs in the future.

  7. Add "Updated/Changed" File Event as a Trigger

    Add "Updated/Changed" File Event as a Trigger.

    Triggering a Relay on a specific file when it has been updated directly or updated with an upload, maintaining file history.

    The current workaround is to create a "New upload" Trigger, then the file needs to be Deleted and create/uploaded from new, thus requiring 2 steps and losing file history.

  8. Max_Upload_Size Field Needs a Box CLI Switch for User Record Updating

    Each user now has the maxuploadsize field in their user record, which designates the largest single file size that a user can upload. This setting can be viewed in the user's profile in the WebUI and is set as an Enterprise level setting.

    Just as the user's spaceamount (their quota) can be set via the Box CLI, using the --disk-space switch when updating a user's record, there is a need to be able to access a switch to set maxupload_size when updating individual user records via the Box CLI.

  11. I want you to make the preview of Excel easier to see

    Excel is hard to see the preview.
    The page is split unnaturally.
    For example, in the case of Google Sheets, it looks the same whether it is Read Only or editable.
    In the same way, I want you to improve it so that it looks the same regardless of whether it is Read Only or edit OK.

    エクセルがプレビューが見にくい。
    不自然にページが分割される。

    例えばGoogleスプレッドシートの場合、Read Onlyでも編集OKでも、見た目は変わらない。
    同じように、Read Onlyでも編集OKでも、見た目は同じになるように改善して欲しい。

  12. Knowledge Base

    It would be amazing if there was a way to have something like box notes or an add on that would allow an article based knowledgebase within box. This would be so helpful for a company wide and public kb in the product that we are using day to day.

  13. Create custom alerts if user/subset of users performs "X" amount of Downloads/Copies in "Y" amount of time

    We would like the ability to Create custom alerts to send email notifications if any user, or a specific subset of users, performs "X" amount of Downloads/Copies/Shares/Uploads/etc in "Y" amount of time (where we can select what "X" and "Y" are). We know that there is a way to setup a "Content Security - Download" policy that will send email notifications if download activity is "Low, Medium or High" based on your preset definitions of what that means (for instance "High = 12 per hour" in the preset rule), but that doesn't necessarily correspond to what we would want to…

  14. I want to use BOX instead of PPAP. PPAP is Japanese bad protocol name that file transfer with email.

    Before, most Japanese company used PPAP to send files with email. PPAP is a jargon that protocol name in JAPAN. PPAP is an idea of "Sending crypted zip file with email and sending password of zip with next email".
    Japanese company used the idea for security. But it didn't work well for security because of using same root sending crypted zip file and password.
    So our Japanese company want to use BOX instead of PPAP. This idea is not collaborating function of BOX. The idea is "Sending files (or folder) URL of BOX to BOX users". When receiver want to…

  16. Show full folder path at top

    Too much of the file path is collapsed at the left while there is plenty of space along the top to show more of the path.

  18. Seamlessly take and upload a large number of photos with Box mobile app

    Please add the ability to take many photos in a row with the Box mobile app and the newly added Capture mode (widget).
    In the Box Capture app, this could be done by turning off the review.

  19. Have the Box Metadata Live with the file in in the XMP packet

    Upon EXport of a file from Box all "Box" metadata should be appended to the XMP packet of Valid Formats under a Box Schema. For example, any image format should move with the associated metadata from one system to another if you have to export from box to a 3rd party dam you don't want to have to export all the metadata with it as a separate file - appending to the XMP would be very useful

  20. Using Box Relay on Mobile

    Box Relay's [manually initiated] workflow does not currently support mobile.
    We would like Box Relay to be able to use mobile even more effectively.

    (In Japanese)
    Box Relayの [手動で開始] ワークフローは、現在モバイルに対応していません。
    モバイルを更に効果的に活用するためにBox Relayを利用できるようにしてほしい。
