  1. Request for improvement of mail upload function

    I found a problem with the current mail upload function, so I would like Box to improve it.

    [Request (1): Adding Management Console and Folder Settings]
    Users with Editor permission can change the settings of the folder's mail upload function.
    However, I would like to add the ability to restrict this permission to owners and co-owners to the administrative console and the settings for each folder.

    [Request (2) Timing for saving the settings of the mail upload function]
    If you click "Allow uploads to this folder via email" about the mail upload function of the folder, the URL for the…

  2. More specific error messages when uploads fail

    When manually uploading a new version of a file, I received a "Some Uploads Fail" message. Only later did I see it was because there was another file of the same name in the folder. The error message should be more specific to this problem.

  3. Increase Upload File Size Limit

    Currently, the Upload File Size Limit for Enterprise Plus is 150 GB. The ask is to increase this upload limit, ideally up to 1 TB.

  4. Unintentional redirects in filerequests

    When accessing a file request link created by another tenant, you may be redirected to your own environment with the error "This page is unavailable or no longer accepting submissions." error.
    The conditions under which this error occurs are
    The publisher is in an environment that requires SSO
    The "Require uploader to login to Box" is ON in the settings.

    I would like to be able to upload files correctly without redirecting to my environment even under these conditions.

  5. Zoom video recordings archival into Box under closed folder structure.

  6. Add a captcha to the File Request module.

    Add a captcha to the file request module especially when the module is available from the public. This will prevent file upload from spam.

  7. File Request URL Parameters

    It would be awesome to be able to pre-populate the metadata fields via URL parameters. This is particularly useful when sending the request to clients and wanting to make it as easy as possible for them to upload their documents. Some other functions along with that which would be nice are.

    1. Pre-fill metadata (all metadata types) from URL parameters
    2. Disable metadata field when it is pre-filled by URL
    3. Hide metadata field when it is pre-filled

    Thanks for the consideration.

  8. File Request uploads to Box include uploader's user information

    The following would be ideal:
    When uploaded via File Request and logged into Box, the uploaded file(s) will contain the uploader's user information such as name, email address, and more (more detailed information such as tracking code values) in metadata.

    This idea is based on a use case of a college where a large number of students submit documents via File Request, and college administrators want to make sure which document was submitted by who, referring to the document's metadata.

  9. Show uploaded files in the recent page.

    Show uploaded files in the recent page.

    I do have cases that I want to view the files I uploaded recently. However, if I uploaded a file without previewing, it doesn't come up the list.

  10. I would like to be notified when an error occurs and an item cannot be uploaded, or to be able to check the error log in the report.

     エラーが発生してアイテムのアップロードができなかった際に通知、またはレポートでエラーログを確認できるようにしてほしい

    内容
     When an error occurs when uploading a large number of items, it is difficult to list the items that could not be uploaded from the UI.
     For this reason, we would like the following functions to be added.
      ・If an error is detected when uploading to a folder that contains file requests, notify the user who uploaded the file or the owner of the file via e-mail or on the web.
      ・A function to output the log of failed uploads to the user activity report.

    <Japanese>
     大量のアイテムをアップロードしたときにエラーが発生し他場合、UI上だとアップロードができなかった対象アイテムをリストアップすることが難しい。
     そのため、以下機能を追加してほしい。
      ・ファイルリクエストを含むフォルダへのアップロード時に失敗したことを検知したらアップーロードしたユーザや所有者にメールもしくはWEB上で通知する機能
      ・ユーザアクティビティレポートにアップロードに失敗したログを出力する機能

  11. I want to set conditions for files in File Request

    I want to limit the types of files that can be received by checking file extensions (Word, Excel, Power Point, PDF, image, video, audio files, etc.)
    I want to be able to set a single file size limit.

    Implementing this function improves security.

    (Japanese)
    【ファイルリクエストでファイルに条件の設定をしたい】

    ファイルの拡張子(Word, Excel ,Power Point , PDF、画像、ビデオ、オーディオファイル等)のチェックを付けられるようにして受け取れるファイル種別を制限したい
    単一ファイルサイズの上限の設定をできるようにしたい。

    この機能を実現することでセキュリティ面が向上します。

  12. Request: Monitoring function when uploading and labeling

    With security reasons, automatic labeling function when uploading is very important for our user.

    Our users request the functionality to see the upload and labeling status in real time.

    The labeling function is very useful, however, sometimes it seems not working, so if the user can see the status up uploading and labeling, it is very useful for users.

    I hope that you will offer that funtion in the near future.

    セキュリティ上の理由から、アップロード時の自動ラベル付け機能はユーザーにとって非常に重要です。

    当社のユーザーは、アップロードとラベル付けのステータスをリアルタイムで確認する機能を要求しています。

    ラベル付け機能は非常に便利ですが、うまく動作しないこともあるので、アップロードやラベル付けの状況が確認できると、ユーザーにとっては非常に便利です。

    近い将来その機能を提供してくれることを願っています。

  13. Rollback all files uploaded even if one fails to upload

    Under the current design, when uploading multiple files, the successful files are stored in Box, even if one of the uploads fails. As a result, subsequent processing, e.g. adding metadata, may also not take place. This is inconvenient for the user under the usecase of using File Request+Metadata. The user has to look for files that were not uploaded and has to check the metadata for files that were uploaded. And if the uploader is anonymous, it's impossible. This Pulse requests that if one or more uploads fail, the uploads of other files performed in that File Request are also…

  15. Box needs an ability to pause certain file uploads/transfers

    When trying to upload files to meet a deadline, I sometimes have large working files using up all my transfer space. The ability to pause or stop certain files from uploading, prioritizing others would be extremely helpful. This would also be beneficial for metered connections while travelling. Thanks.

  16. Can't Use Buttons "Under" Green Update Box

    Please fix this annoying issue. Currently when I upload a document or rename something, a green update box pops up at the top of my screen. When that confirmation happens, I'm not able to click on anything to the direct left or right of it (i.e. my search bar, more options sometimes, etc.) until it goes away or I specifically click the 'x'. It's like everything is "behind" the update box, and it gets a bit annoying when I'm renaming or uploading several things.

    Ideally I'd like to be able to use the buttons/features to the left and right of…

  17. File size limits for File Request uploads

    We have tried using the File Request to encourage our supply chain to upload files directly to our filing system on Box instead of using unathorised file transfer services, however it frequently fails due to file size. I note in the FAQ that the maximum file upload size is limited by that permitted by the content submitter - it would be more useful if the file upload size was based by that permitted by our account as the organisation requesting the file. As the File Request service also doesn't permit uploading of folders, this often means our content submitters have…

  18. Enable to obtain information about the uploader of a file uploaded via file request.

    I would like to use the Box API to obtain information about the uploader of a file uploaded via a file request.
    In the current specification, the "createdby" and "modifiedby" names of these files are both "Anonymous User" even if the file was uploaded by a user who is logged into Box.

  19. File Request's new email notification format is a step backwards - it doesn't tell us the email address of the uploader (but it used to)

    A few months ago, the format for the email notification would show the email address of an uploader that used the "file request" feature.

    The updated format has LESS information, now it simply says that "someone" uploaded a file. Go back to the prior version which showed the email address of the uploader.

  20. Box File Request - Limit number of files and/or file type for upload zones

    When creating a file request for a folder, we would like to have the ability to limit the number of files able to be uploaded in an upload zone from the standard 500 uploads. It would also be ideal to limit the type of files that are able to be uploaded. For example, if we wanted a customer to upload document x in pdf format, we could use these limitations to ensure they upload in the correct format and all in one file, instead of uploading 20/30 png photos of the document we request. While we can provide guidelines on…
