  1. "inactive" or "archive" flag maps to less-expensive storage

    FEATURE IDEA:
    Provide ability to flag/classify files and folders in a way that allows Box to move them to a less-expensive storage offering on the back-end. This can be referred to as an "inactive" or "archive" flag.

    BENEFITS & BACKGROUND

    During the Box Higher Education Community Monthly Open Discussion on January 11th, an idea to submit to Box Pulse was formed, and seemed to have support from all in attendance (25-30 institutions).

    Box acknowledges that there is a growing concern around constantly increasing storage, and the costs associated with it. The majority of files stored in Box are perceived (or…

  2. Watermark of PDF and Excel files

    We are not able to use watermark of PDF and Excel files on mobile devices such as iPhone and iPad. We would like to use this feature.

  4. Ability to force sync of Box Drive

    Currently, Drive relies on event poll for updating cached contents, and if events (updates on web) are not picked up by Drive in a timely manner, then local contents get outdated (out of sync with web). As a workaround, we want the ability to force sync of a selected folder (maybe add a right click menu to force sync/refresh cache).

  5. cascading auto-start workflows

    cascading auto-start workflows. We have a specific use case defined that would greatly benefit from this capability - shield classification being applied automatically alerts the uploader of the file that the content needs to be moved. This would be a big win for USAA

  6. We want to update the sync on the Box Drive in real time.

    The data edited by myself on the Box Drive will be reflected, but I would like the synchronization to be updated in real time for data edited/saved by other users.

  7. Add "remove collaborator" option as option in a Relay workflow

    In the same vein as being able to Add a collaborator as part of a Relay workflow, it would be nice to also Remove a collaborator as well. Customer would like to Add a collaborator as part of a workflow, have that collaborator do their part, then have them removed as they no longer need access to the content going forward.

  8. Support multi-file for rejected task trigger in Relay

    Suppose you like to assign an approval task to a person with multiple files and when the task is rejected, you like to move the package of those “rejected” files to a different folder("Rejected folder) instead of having them sat in the triggered folder.

    For a single file, you can create the following workflow containing 2 flows and it works perfect as expected, however it doesn't work for multi-files...
    Flow 1: Trigger Manual start-> Outcome: Assign task -> When rejected, the flow is end
    Flow 2: Trigger Task -> Outcome: when the task is rejected, move the file to “Rejected…

  9. "Smart Access: Download restriction" for G-Suite

    We want "Smart Access: Download restriction" to control the download/printing capability of G-Suite apps. We want the integration just like office online which restrict download/print on office online apps.

    For security perspective, we want to minimize the risk of data breach, so we are planning to store the confidential files on box and restrict the content to be downloaded to the devices. However currently if user opened the files on G-Suite, the files can be downloaded or printed.

  10. Allow configuration of permissions to apply and change each classification created

    To apply or change a classification, select "Owners/co-owners and editors" in the classification settings, and then click Users with editorial privileges or higher can apply and change the classifications.
    However, by implementing a feature that allows configuration of permissions to apply and change each classification created, the Security can be enhanced.

  11. Auto overwrite if the file is uploaded with the same name in the folder via File Request.

    In the current spec, the file with the same name in the folder is uploaded via File Request, the file name is automatically changed to containing date and time.
    I want the option to overwrite the file when it has the same name of existing files.

  12. Create a Box group/alias or ability to select a different name to replace the workflow owner’s name.

    I’ve created several Relay workflows across the business and the issue I found is that people are reaching out to me because my name is tied to a task that is assigned to them. Often times, I do not have any context to the workflow so it results in me having to reach out to the person who started/uploaded the document. We want to avoid approvers having to reach out to the workflow owner vs. the actual owner of the program. This process would not be sustainable if it were rolled out to a larger company.

    Currently Example: Hayley creates…

  13. File Request Email Validation

    Provide the ability to have the email address provided in a File Request form to be validated either generically to make sure the email is a real address or to require them to authenticate themselves. This is critical for organizations that have strict security and compliance requirements and can't accept the risk of someone getting a hold of the File Request link and uploading malicious content or inundate their folders with nonsense files.

  14. Tale over the settings in shield trial mode

    Currently, the trial mode classification and settings will disappear at the end of the trial period.
    If we have a Shield contract, we would like to take over its classification and settings.

    By eliminating the need to set them up again in the production environment, we can make a smooth transition.

  15. Email Address Lists Shield

    To support ethical walls, it would be advantageous to be able to create lists of email addresses for different teams within the same company so that collaboration and shared link access can be restricted. Example for private side, public side employees within an investment bank content could be classified for each with access controls in place to prevent sharing and collaboration.

  16. Relay lite: allow admin to change the workflow owner

    Box Relay creates a workflow (Folder creates a task that requests invoice processing and is used to manage outstanding tasks) that enables clerical employees to process invoices more efficiently. However, when the employee is transferred, the workflow that has been created is not transferred to the next person in charge. If a useful workflow can be managed as a company, not as an individual (Change the workflow owner for contact changes), it will be very useful for business efficiency.

  18. Log Access Policy Violations

    Box currently only logs successful actions. We would like to see when a user attempts to share content that is blocked by Shield Access policies. From a DLP and insider threat perspective this would be huge in determining what people are attempting to do, not just what they are successful at doing.

  19. Allow bulk actions to be interrupted (such as copy/move/restore/delete)

    When users copy / move / restore / delete a large number of items, we want them to be able to cancel if they notice a mistake along the way.
    Currently, when processing a large number of items in Box, we need to wait until the process is completed even if we notice a mistake.
    When processing large numbers of items, processing may require several days.
    During that time, folders and files are locked.
    Please make it possible to interrupt the process on the way.

  20. Allow users to share built workflows

    Allow workflow builders to share their workflows with each other. Currently workflows need to be rebuilt by each user whereas it would save a lot of time to be able to share these workflows that have already been built.
