  1. Shared With Me - Folder Management for Collaboration Folders

    We would like to have a "Shared with Me" folder for any folders we have been collaborated into.

    We continually get feature requests for Box to allow a way to organize content shared with me. For example, I'd like to create a "Shared with me" folder that all the content shared with me could be organized into.
    I envision this could happen in one of a few ways and there would need to be some determination how much control the end user has....

    Option 1:
    - Allow end users to check a setting that would create a folder called "Shared…

    We have a feature on the roadmap that will allow you to organize content that you own or that has been shared with you into private groupings. We are also looking at the best way to solve for additional shared with me features based on common customer pain points

  2. Folder-Level Activity Reporting: Ability to Report on Activity and Access Stats at the Folder Level

    Add an 'export' option available for folder Owners & Co-Owners to export various items at the folder level (meaning in the webapp - not the Admin Console) for--Activity (uploads, download, moves, previews, create shared link, invite collaborators, etc.) in the folder--Collaborations--Etc.

  3. Root Folder Organization: Organize folders into personal subfolders even if they are not owners

    Requesting ability to move folders shared with you into sub-folders you choose to create & manage (not impacting the true location/hierarchy of the shared folder itself established by the folder owner)

  4. Dark Mode Option

    I think it would be nice to be able to either turn on a Dark Mode when I'm in a browser at Box.com or, have an option to select a different background color.
    Just one of those folk who have a time with bright white light ..

    Thank you for your suggestion. This is not currently planned for development. We will let you know if anything changes. Please continue to share your use cases in the comments.

  5. 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.

  6. Remove multiple collaborators from folders

    Box currently does not have a way to remove multiple collaborators at bulk.
    Currently, admin needs to manually remove multiple users by opening the appropriate folder and removing users one at a time.

    Suggestion can also apply to removing collaborators from multiple folders.

    We’re definitely considering this feature given the pain points that users are facing today! Please comment with your specific use cases and the challenges you’re facing so our team can prioritize and solution accordingly.

  7. Notification when someone is editing a file

    Since we don't have an option to check-in/check-out of files, can you add a feature like Dropbox's badge which alerts a user when someone else is editing a file so we prevent any simultaneous version history/editing issues?

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re actively researching in this area right now, so I’d love to collect any additional feedback you might have on use cases. For example: are you primarily looking for this notification on Preview? The files list? And in which applications – Web? Box Drive? Box mobile applications?

    Any additional information you provide will be much appreciated.

  8. Collaborators Page (Item-Level) -- Add Ability to Sort by Column Headers / Filter by External Collab

    The Collaborators page (at the file/folder level) currently does not allow any sorting capabilities. Add a simple ability to click the column headers to change the sort order to things like "added most recently at top" or "reverse alphabetical order by name". Additionally, adding an "external?' filter to only show external collaborators in the folder would be awesome.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Though I see how useful additional sorting on the Collaborators page would be, due to various technical constraints we don’t currently plan to implement this functionality.

  9. Add Linux to Web app QA process

    The web app UX is horrible on Linux. It's not just one bug, but dozens of bugs that affect Linux and ChromeOS users.

    Examples:
    - Downloading a Docx will prompt you to open with Word instead
    - Clicking Open will prompt you to install Box Tools
    - Clicking install Box Tools will download an EXE file

    All of these are completely irrelevant and an annoying hurdle for Linux users. Box Tools for linux doesn't exist. Linux Users can't run EXE files. Open With Word doesn't make ANY sense, as Word doesn't exist for Linux.

    Please fix.

  10. User-Level Option to Default to 'In This Folder' Search

    Currently, 'in this folder' searching is an opt-in for each search that a user performs. Some users, however, would like webapp search to mirror the experience we already provide on mobile, aka always defaulting to doing an 'in this folder' search. REQUEST: Add a user-level setting (within a user's Account Settings) that allows them to opt-in to always defaulting to 'in this folder' searching (meaning the 'in this folder' checkbox in the quicksearch filter will always be checked unless the user manually unchecks it for a specific search).

  11. Add column for Modified date, and allow sorting on it.

    It would be really handy to be able to add a column for and sort based on "Modified date" field. Currently the "Updated" column is not useful if you are doing content migrations from outside sources. While the files maintain the "modified date", they get an "Updated date" of the day it was migrated.

    We are considering migrating our existing LAN contents to Box. Our users frequently need to sort on last modified date. We are uploading all data to Box and retaining the original date stamps where possible. Sorting is key.

  12. Locked Files

    It would be REALLY great if there were a way in Box to pull up all of the files you have locked. My team shares tons of excel files all day long. If I forget to unlock a file, no one else knows if they can get in. Half the time I'm not in it but forgot to unlock it. If there were a way to pull up all files at any given time in one place that I've locked where I could unlock them from that screen if I'm no longer in them, it would save us a lot…

  13. "Lock" a folder taxonomy

    This allows a folder owner (or developer) to lock a folder taxonomy in place so that Editors can add and update documents but not create or rename folders.

    Definitely an interesting suggestion! Please comment below with your specific use cases and challenges regarding locking a folder taxonomy.

  14. Custom 'Views' / 'Labels' to Organize Folders in Box

    Request: provide the ability for end users to label or categorize folders in order to create different 'views' or 'workspaces' for their folders

    on roadmap  ·  Stephanie Zhang responded

    Soon, we’ll be releasing our new collections feature within the web application to allow users to group together their content within their Box account!

  15. Folder path under Trash

    Under Trash, please add "folder path". If there was a bulk delete of many files in a folder, we want to confirm the file belongs in the folder path, before we restore the files.

  16. Indicators / Progress Bar for Large Folder Operations (Moves, Ownership Transfers, Delete, Copy)

    When doing a move of a large folder or changing the owner of a large folder, users often receive a 'this may take some time' banner notification in the webapp, but that quickly disappears and the user is left wondering... "so...has it finished fully yet?"

    REQUEST: Have more indicators (progress bar, e-mail updates, etc.) of progress in the operation, especially for folder moves/ownership transfers.

    Example: In our mobile apps, we provide a 'job manager' that shows the user progress when they're performing various actions.

  17. Custom collaboration expiration periods for individual folder collaborators

    Currently, the only options for collaboration expiration on a folder is set at an enterprise level.

    The request is multipart, for the options to
    1) Set a custom collaboration expiration period at the folder level only (regardless of what the enterprise setting is)
    2) Set different expiration periods (e.g. 30 days vs 60 days) for different collaborators or groups within the folder

  19. File Request - Display Icon on Folders with File Request Enabled

    On the website, much like the icons on/next to folders for Shared Links, Descriptions, or Sync To Desktop, it would be nice to have an icon for folders that have the File Request feature enabled on them. It would greatly assist with being able to easily identify folders that have the feature enabled at first glance. Thank you.

    Thank you for this feedback! We are actively exploring options to both indicate when a File Request is active on a folder, as well as when a file submission came in through a File Request. We should have a more comprehensive update in 1-2 quarters after we update the core feature/functionality in Q1 and Q2. Thanks!

  20. Menus are cut off and unusable

    When I select one of the files closest to the top of the list, the menu options for "open with" and sometimes "download" are cut off. No matter how I resize my screen I can't reach those menu items. This is an issue across multiple computers, usually using Chrome.
