  2. Show progress bar for uploads when using file request widget

    We would like for the File Request Widget to have a progress bar for uploads, so users can see if their upload made it to Box or if it failed.

  3. Getting Notifications that Don't apply to non-admins

    When I logged into Box this morning, I saw the following note in the lower right-hand corner of my home screen.

    Your Box account has been growing!
    A growing number of users at your company have signed up for Box accounts – exceeding the number seats included in your plan by {{MLDATAOVERAGE_SEATS}}. To adjust this license overage, add seats to your plan using the link below.


    1. We do have seats available

    2. I am not an admin so this shouldn't be a notification I should receive.

  4. Simplify "File Request" window

    I have users on my team still using ShareFile to specifically "request files" from external people because the process is simpler. Three key suggestions for the Box "File request" feature:
    1) Can you streamline the pop-up window to focus on the "link" versus the embed widget link. 2) Expose the option/checkbox of the requestor to receive an email when the content is uploaded.
    3) Allow the requestor to adjust the expiration date. Default would be tied to the admin link share policies

    Thanks!

  7. Allow Metadata search for files uploaded via Box API

    Documents in BOX are not searchable based on Metadata when uploaded using BOX API

    Document uploaded into BOX via EPHESOFT using BOX API and 3 metadata elements are attached to the document. We can see the document in the BOX and the metadata elements are present in the Custom Metadata section in the BOX.

    There are two ways to find files in Box based on the metadata. The existing Search API provides a metadata filtering option and also indexes metadata content. The Metadata Query API provides SQL-like syntax for finding files based on specific metadata condtions. See https://developer.box.com/guides/metadata/queries/create/ and https://developer.box.com/guides/search/full-text-search/

    If there are unmet needs please add a comment!

  8. error in documentation

    On the Authenticate with JWT (SDK) page the Node code snippet creates a const "configJSON," but then when the page references it later, it calls it "appConfig" in another code snippet instead. It references the enterpriseId in the configJSON variable but calls it appConfig.enterpriseId out of nowhere instead. The code breaks like this. Please fix for the sake of people trying to use these code snippets.

  10. Stop interception of browser search shortcut in developer docs

    The box developer docs hijack CMD+F and that's exactly not what I expect it to do

    CMD+F is a shortcut for most (all?) browsers to bring up a native Find dialog, but your reference docs hijack it in favor of some type of auto-complete search on the page which is actually never what I want, or expect to happen.

  11. Saving File Request Options

    If you open “…” > File Request in the folder, you will see the “File Request” function.

    There are 4 items in “Customize options” of file request.
    There is a checkbox for each.

    If you close the screen with this checkbox selected, the next time you open it, it is unchecked.

    Can there be a save button so that we are not mistaken that we selected settings for the link? Or can the settings remain checked so that when we re-open the option, we can see that we did select settings for the link?

  12. Either/Or Approvers

    Currently Relay does not support "either/or" approvers.

    We have use cases where we have multiple approvers in a process but only need a certain amount of approvers to continue the workflow. i.e. There are 3 approvers in a process but we only need 2 out of the 3 to approve.

  13. Request File Marked Malicious Error in Box Web App UI and api

    Constant monitoring the "enterprise events adminlogs" for FILEMARKEDMALICIOUS events is not feasible for our application. Request is to add filemarkedmalicious error, similar to filesizelimitexceeded error, so that the user the can be instantly notified of potential problem at file upload time for best user experience.

    Instant notification is available today in our application, without this ability our users would see a degradation in their app experience.

  14. File Request - Assign to Other Collaborator Permission Levels

    Please allow Editors to send File Requests. Currently, only Owners and Co-Owners can send file requests. It would be extremely helpful if Editors could as well. In our organization, we have many with editor rights that could take advantage of this feature and would gain great efficiency . Making these users a Co-Owner will not work with our current permissions segregation.

  17. Notarize the application for MacOS

    Box Drive seems to be notarized, however the Box Tools / Box Edit installer is currently not, so my system warns me that this is "an application downloaded from the internet".

  18. Retain completed tasks in the Notification CEnter

    We would like to find tasks completed by others in our Notifications Center. Right now, Tasks assigned to other users disappear from our list when the task is complete. We want to be able to see completed tasks.

  19. Disallow group admin from elevating group permission from admin console above their collaboration access

    Currently if a group admin is individually invited to a folder as a viewer, the group admin can add the folder to a group as editors.

    We have removed the ability for group admins to elevate access levels to folders. This has been shipped and is available in production.

  20. Qs re: API and "is_external_collab_restricted" parameter

    I believe that the API allows for updating the "isexternalcollab_restricted" parameter. However, the API documentation and example does not illustrate this. Would you kindly update the documentation on this?

    If I'm wrong and adjusting this paramter via the API actually isn't possible, would it be possible to request this be available?
