  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. 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.

  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. 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。

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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。

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Publish Box Collections to Users and Groups

    Admins need a way to publish pre-defined collections to Users / Groups . Its also necessary to make these collections visible in Box Drive App.

  13. Have a personalized name for a shared file or folder

    It would be great if we could apply a tag, or rename a file or folder to something private to the user rather than what the original owner named the file.
    Today we can move those items into Collections to manage them with our own naming, but that doesn't resolve the issue of individual files or folders with ambiguous names.

    For example: I need to track certain files that a bunch of different teams are working on as part of "Company Project 1". I don't need to see everything the teams are doing, so they don't grant me access to…

  14. Better workflows for organizing content

    A colleague of mine works in an a department we'll call "DepartmentX" in a larger organization. Within other departments in the org they create a "DepartmentX" folder and share that to my colleage's box account.

    My colleague now has several "DepartmentX" folders and cannot at a glance see where they are from.

    In the initial view in Box and even on BoxDrive the "root" is polluted with other people's stuff and it is not possible to organize that into sub folders that are meaningful.

    If a user tries to drag a shared-folder into a folder they created Box attempts to…

  15. collections available in modal windows

    Everywhere that uses a modal window should surface collections. For example in Teams adding a file to a chat to share, modal window appears. Show collections.

    Another example - When creating a workflow and then using the file picker modal window appears. Show collections.

    Collections should be everywhere, it is a killer feature that would get more use if you could rely on every interaction with box showing collections. (otherwise it makes using box more difficult remembering where content is)

  16. Search Box Collections

    We think it would be great to be able to create a Collection of specific folders. Then utilize a Collection only Search. It would be great to even include it as a Metadata option. Allowing users to search across collections via a Collection Specific Metadata Template.

  17. Collections items are not allowed to be dragged and dropped onto Trush.

    Users can drag and drop folders and files registered in "My Collections" and "Favorites" to "Trush".
    In this case, the folders and files will be moved to Trush.
    On the other hand, the user recognizes that this operation unregisters "My Collections" and "Favorites".
    This difference in perception caused operational problems.
    A user has moved a folder containing tens of thousands of files from "My Collection" to Trush, which has stopped the business of that person.
    My request is:
    Folders and files displayed in "My Collections" and "Favorites" are prohibited from being moved to Trush by drag and drop.

  18. 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.

  19. Save a Search Query as a Collection

    When you search, have an option to save the search query as a Collection that then gets dynamically updated.

    Good use case: search query for "Folders Created Today" and save that as a Collection (or some other entity in Box).

    Other platforms do this with search already and users enjoy it!

  20. Add folder shared with all people in my company to favorites and collection

    Hi Box Team,

    When I share a folder with all people in my company, then my colleagues can access the folder with the link but they cannot add the folder to their favorites or collections. It would be great if folders shared with people in my company can be added to collections or favorites by my colleagues.

    Regards Nils
