  2. We would like to be able to preview files encrypted with Microsoft MIP from Box./Microsoft MIP

    We would like to be able to preview files encrypted with Microsoft MIP from Box.
    Because it is not supported by the current MIP integrator.
    Microsoft MIPで暗号化されたファイルをBox上からプレビュー出来るようにしてほしい。
    現在のMIP統合機能でサポートされていないため。

  3. Shared Link Lookup Tool

    Problem: Admins often need to do investigation of files stored in Box and all they have to go off of is the file/folder's shared link. Since admins can't search by shared link in the current Content Manager UI, a Shared Link Lookup tool would provide similar information.

    Key Features:
    -Provide ability to enter a shared link (standard or vanity URL)
    -Information returned after searching:
    -File/folder name
    -File/folder owner
    -File/folder location (Owner -> Folder hierarchy)
    -Status (whether the file/folder has been deleted or not)
    -Admin-level 'delete' (ability for the admin to delete the file on the spot)

  4. Approval Task With Box Relay Enhancements

    When allocating approval tasks in Box Relay, users are able to uncheck the "Invite the person in charge as a viewer" function.
    In addition, if "Invite users as viewers" is enabled, and the members in charge have been granted permission as members of a group, which prevent them from being invited to the file as viewers.

  5. Please separate the colors of the icons displayed in folders and files.

    Due to the release of Box Shield's new classification indicators, the colors of the "lock icon" and "shared link icon" displayed on folders and files are all grayed out.
    In the past, the "lock icon" was red, and the "shared link icon" was blue, etc., making it easy for users to see and use.

    We believe this is a far cry from Box's goal of accessibility, which is "ease of use for all users."
    In order to provide an easy-to-use environment for all users, please restore the icon colors to the previous specifications or color code them.

    (Japanese)
    フォルダ・ファイルに表示されているアイコンの色を分けてください。

  6. Large Folder Operation email notification when the operation is finished

    I would like to have the user and admin to receive an email notification once the large folder operation (LFO) is finished so that each counterpart knows when the operation is finished.

    We're actively considering several initiatives to increase visibility around large folder operations, including notification mechanisms to track the status of such operations.


    Please continue to share your feedback to help us prioritise this idea.

  7. Custom Watermarking based on metadata or manually.

    Opportunity where main requirement was to distribute content to various locations, but add custom watermarking as they are published out. Typically with the location name content is publisehd to.

    This request is still under consideration. The team is working on its sequencing among the rest of enhancements for our watermarking capabilities. 

    Feel free to share any specific need on the customisation aspects of watermarks (texts, metadata specifics, etc) you may have, as well as use cases you are considering it for. Such details will be extremely helpful towards understanding this ask's impact.

  8. Option to request access to a folder

    Request: If an external or internal user is forwarded a Box folder invite and they are not a current collaborator, they should have a mechanism to request the access and such request should automatically go to folder Owner/Co-owner for approval or decline. This should be done in a way that does not display or communicate the folder owners name.

    Rationale: We have many external users that are part of large teams. Adding all (and maintaining) in the team is not feasible. These external users often forward the folder invites.

  9. Templates - Restrict Templates to Specific Users/Groups and/or Folder Structures

    Metadata templates are currently global across an entire EID. This does not scale well for large organizations with 50,000, 100,000 or more than 200,000 users.

    This request is to add 'scope' parameters to Metadata Templates such that a specific template can be restricted to...
    1. A specific set of users
    2. A specific set of Groups
    3. A specific Folder structure

  10. Shield Shared Links: Password Requirement

    Passwords for public links are wonderful, however, the capability to enforce all links (even those with internal or collaborator scope) would be beneficial for users and content security. If this password requirement could be tied to classifications as an access policy, that would make it increasingly difficult for negligent or malicious actions on Box content. Currently, we can only decrease the scope available for shared links, but by requiring a password, there will be additional adoption for Box and Shield, especially within highly regulated industries that require external or public distribution of content.

  12. COPY / MOVE API events to include origin file's ID, name and location

    Currently there is no way to know which file was copied/moved in Box Events API. It is only possible to see the destination file name and location, and only if the file was copied/moved within one Box instance. This presents a major challenge for customers who want to build custom programs that monitor copy/move activity both inside and outside their Box instances.

  13. Make Workflows Shareable Among Users (Box Relay and Box Relay Lite)

    In Box Relay, we can check the progress of workflows in the [Tracking] function.
    Currently, only the owner of the workflow, and Admins who are granted to access to workflows can see this [Tracking].

    However, the progress of workflows within the enterprise should be visible to other users as well.
    (e.g. Users who have tasks assigned in the workflow, or Co-Owners of the folder where the workflow is triggered.)

    It would be useful if the owners could share their workflows to other users.

  14. 【New UI】 Ability to limit authorization settings by co-administrators.

    After the change to the new UI, co-administrators are no longer able to grant or revoke co-administrator privileges to other users for security reasons.
    Some users have voiced a lack of convenience because they are no longer able to do things that were previously possible with co-administrator authority.
    We would like to see a restriction feature added to allow operation only by some co-administrators.

    新UIに変更後、セキュリティ強化の観点から共同管理者では他ユーザーに対し共同管理者権限の付与や剥奪の操作が行えなくなっています。
    これまで共同管理者権限で実施出来ていたことが出来なくなっているため利便性が欠けている声が上がっている。
    一部の共同管理者のみ操作を可能にする制限機能を追加してほしいです。

  15. Report / Customizable dashboard for a workflow

    I would like to get an overall view of my workflow and which files are at which stages, including:
    - How many files are in Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, etc.
    - How many files have completed
    - How many files were denied (or stopped in process)

  16. Shield Alert - mark as resolved

    On the dashboard for Shield, you see a list of alerts generated through threat detection policies. We'd like to see the functionality where end users could mark an alert as seen and/or resolved so everyone who monitors the Shield alerts would know whether it's been resolved or open. This is similar to a ticketing system, but a simple notes body on the alert where someone could put an explanation of their response to the alert would greatly enhance visibility and drive better usability. Thanks!

  17. Ability to read the EXIF data in the photos that are uploaded

    I need Box to read the EXIF data in the photos I upload. Having access to that would make categorizing and finding assets infinitely easier. If I could sort by the metadata already included with an image file I would be able to find by date, location, resolution, etc automatically. A default metadata template should be created that matches that of EXIF data so that it automatically loads. You could then find the images you want by searching the EXIF data then could apply other metadata to add more relevance.

  18. File request - Allow only Manage Users from an EID to upload via File Request

    In file request, have the ability to state that only a managed user in the EID or an external user that has been invited to the folder can upload, no one else. By doing this, it prevents a file request link from being randomly guessed or found on the internet AND prevents a random user from uploading bad or malware/virus infected content. The current state of requiring the user to login is too generic and doesn't meet the requirement of keeping the file request locked down. Using the collaboration role for upload is not what is needed. The File Request…

  19. Box Sign requests default "my requests" folder

    Box Sign requests default to save into a "my requests" folder for all users. We don't always need the sign request saved into our regular Box folder structure and having a separate place for each user to send their requests to would be more beneficial.

  20. disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled

    We would like a Function to disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled in the "Privacy" folder settings.

    We want this because If you invite multiple external collaborators, we don't want external people to detect who you are inviting.

    There is a function to hide collaborators, but if invited external users use comments, tasks, version history, it will be possible to see who is invited, so we would like to disable these functions as well.
