  1. Sharing a Collection

    I understand that collections are meant to be a user specific setting, however, it would be great to have the ability to share a collection with a co-worker.

  2. We want the update date item shown in the file list to be the date and time of the update.

    In the order in which they appear on the file list screen, there is an item called "Updated".
    We would like this to include the "Date and Time" of the update, not just the "Date" of the update.

    Also, the most recently updated items will be listed as "today" or "yesterday" as the date of the update, but we would like to see this listed with the official date.

    ファイル一覧画面で表示される順番に、「更新日」という項目があります。
    これには、更新日の「日付」だけではなく、更新日の「日時」も含めて記載してほしいと思います。

    また、最近更新されたものは、更新日が「今日」「昨日」と表示されますが、これは正式な日付で表示してほしいです。

  3. View Tags in Collections

    The organization heavily uses tags to help with search and sorting. We'd like to have our Tags show on files folders/files when looking at a Collection

  4. Manage collections folder through sub-collections

    I have too many Box folders shared with me and they all show up under "All Files". Collections is a good way to organize but I need to have a hierarchy/folder structure for Collections. Currently this can only be achieved through faking a folder structure through naming.

    example
    Project1
    Project1-subproject1
    Project1-subproject 2

    Being able to create sub collections would solve this.

    Currently my Box account is a huge mess of shared folders.

    Cheers,
    Matt

  5. Rename items and custom order in Collections

    Collections are great! Now the possibility to customize the display order as well as to rename items without affecting the actual folder/file name would be great additions

    Thanks for the feedback. Currently, collections are sorted by 1) Favorites and 2) personal Collections in alphabetical order. We do not have plans currently to allow renaming items or sorting order.

  6. My Collection folders to be kept open when opening another My Collection Folder

    Hi Team,

    A client has requested to be able to keep the My Collection folders open when they open another My Collection folder.

    Currently, when you select one of the folders in the left side menu, you can only open up one folder. When you select a new folder, it closes the previous one.
    It would be great if it is possible to keep the previous folders open unless the user wants to close it by clicking again.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    Thanks for the feedback. We have decided to allow only one expanded collections in the left side menu so we can maximize the performance of loading the left side menu.

  7. A Custom Collection Portal Page

    Business goal: The ability to share a visual customized page (like a web page) with various Box artifacts and other modules (described below) with peers, customers, team members, etc. Use cases:

    1. A project collaboration page
    2. Policies and procedures page
    3. Manuals and instruction page
    4. Product information site
    5. Business Development collaboration site
    6. Various

    Major Feature
    The ability to create a blank page and drop multiple "favorites" on the page. In essence, it is similar to sharing a "collection" of Box favorites, but a more visually appealing view. Other features of this custom portal page:

    1. Ability to filter the contents of the favorites…

  9. Improved the operation of the expand/reduce/delete buttons in My Collection./マイコレクションの展開・縮小・削除ボタンの誤操作改善

    The "V" button to expand My Collection is in the same position as the "X" button to delete it from the collection, which often leads to accidental deletion of links from My Collection.
    The "V" button to expand the collection is in the same position as the "X" button to delete it from the collection. If you click the "X" button, you will be prompted to confirm whether you want to delete the link or not.

    (In Japanese)
    マイコレクションを展開する「V」ボタンを、コレクションから削除する「×」ボタンが同じ位置にあるため、良く間違ってマイコレクションからリンクを消してしまう誤操作があります。
    「×」ではなくゴミ箱のマークに変更する。「×」をクリックした場合、削除するか確認画面を表示するなどの改定を希望します。

  10. Nested folders

    With the current collections capability, it looks like collections don’t have any organization within them. If you wanted to organize things into “folders” within your projects you’d have to title collections all at the top level with a naming that implied a hierarchy in order to map shared items into groupings one layer of organization down. Something like:

    Collections:
    Project1-folder1
    Project1-folder2
    Project1-folder3
    Project2-folder1

    I would have preferred to build an arbitrary folder tree and place shared items into specific places in my folder hierarchy.

    Obviously it would be more useful if this organization was available in Box Drive too.

  11. Sorting Collections.

    When using "Collections", I want to change the order of them. It would be nice if the user could freely sort the collections. This makes the box easier to use.

  12. My Collection and Favorite to be independent on the Web

    Hi Team,

    The client requested that My Collection and Favorite to be independent from each other on the Web so that it is easier to see each folder inside.

    The client has an image something similar to what is now on the mobile app.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration!

  13. Create and add Team Collections via Box Security Group

    We need the ability to create "Team Collections", essentially replicating the function of a Team Drive and provide this shortcut to Users on specific Teams. Given the nature of how Box files/folders are owned by a single User, it makes the function of a Team Drive almost impossible. I think of this as a Mapped Shared Drive in a File server.

    If it were possible to assign Team Collections via Box Security Group, I would be able to provision these Team Collections by an AD Attribute or AD SecGroup, via IdP Rule which maps to a Box Security Group. These…

  15. Ability to change order of Favorite/Collection

    I would like to change the order of the content inside of Favorite/Collection freely so I can show the mostly used/viewed content on the top or organize it in the way that is easier to see.

  16. Drag and Drop documents from collections to different folders

    Hey!

    I keep frequently used document templates in my collections, and it would be great to drag them from the left sidebar and drop them into the current folder I am viewing.

    If I want to copy a document template that is in my collections sidebar to a folder, I have to click into the document and then navigate to copy/move and then find the folder I was just in and select copy.

    I hope this makes sense, but happy to discuss it further.

  17. I want the new Collections to all stay open, unless I close them

    I don't want the other Collections to automatically toggle closed on the sidebar when I choose another one. I want the choice to close it.

  18. Collections Page as My Homepage

    So as designed, I think "My Collections page" is underutilized. Sure here is the only place you can edit/delete your collections and their titles...but this would be a wonderful place to drive users too as their homepage. Obviously, you all thought of that as well since it can be selected as "My Homepage" but right now I think a lot of folks won't want to because there isn't enough useful information on the basic page.

    Please allow the user to better configure this page or at least have the collections unfurled/unnested. So that each time they go to this page…

  19. collections folder is cumbersome and awkward, very hard to use

    My favorites randomly auto populate in the left margin when I open box. My work efficiency is greatly affected by having to click on the collections folder and wait for a new screen then dig through the page to find the bookmark favorite that I want. The "old way" of displaying my favorites had no issues and the order in which my favorites were organized worked well for me. Please find a way to revert back to my favorites always being displayed in the left margin.

  20. Box Drive - All files organization

    Box Drive does not currently allow for organization of your All Files folder.

    To reorganize or move folders on this screen, it actively moves the folders, which isn't always possible. Due to different staff members requiring access to only portions of each folder, we cannot bunch together certain folders that would otherwise belong together.

    For the all files screen, Box should implement a way to label and organize folders for your own personal box, that does not affect where the files are located and how they are shared. There is a way to do this with the collections list on…
