  1. Add Multimedia Embedding Functionality

    The minimal approach to Box Notes is great. There are times where I'd like to use my note as a report and insert embedded HTML code for video or document preview that pulls from Box documents.

  2. docusign

    If we have a large signing process going through DocuSIgn, we could have 100 documents that need to go to clients over a short period of time. In DocuSign, we regularly use the Save and Close option to prepare a document, rather than send it. Once we have all the docs preparared with signature blocks etc, we go into each draft and hit Send.

    It would be good if Box could track the Draft in DocuSign, and allow you to go back into the document in Box and send from there. The only workaround is to login to DocuSign to…

  3. [Microsoft Edge] Hidden files and shortcuts should be uploaded by using the Upload Folders feature with Microsoft Edge

    [Microsoft Edge] Hidden files and shortcuts should be uploaded by using the Upload Folders feature with Microsoft Edge
    Current Edge(not Chromium based) is not able to upload hidden files and shortcuts by using the Upload Folders feature due to browser limitation.

    Enterprises who have a policy to only allow the usage of the legacy version of Microsoft Edge. Therefore, cannot back up hidden files to Box

  4. Is there a way to make comments on MBox folders private/directed toward specific individuals in an MBox group without seen by others?

    I am part of a team that uses MBox to securely upload and view videos of infants who are identified at risk of adverse neurodevelopmental conditions to conduct a standardized assessment on each infant. Typically, when team members upload videos of their patients, we have to send multiple emails in order to a) notify the team that a new video has been uploaded and b) respond to the individual who uploaded the video to offer feedback/scoring. Is there a way to make the MBox comments privatized in order to reduce a bias effect on scoring the videos (and minimize the…

  5. Integrate with best-of-breed content lifecycle management (CLM) tools

    This is not native Box capability. Integrate with Conga, Aptus, or Ironclad would help bring this functionality into Box. Used by Legal, Deal Desk, and Procurement.

  6. box-ui-elements content-explorer needs real thumbnails

    The Content Explorer element needs at least the option to use actual file thumbnails rather than the generic ones based on file type currently shown. Otherwise browsing large collections of images and videos is severely handicapped. The API appears to have a thumbnail/representation endpoint so hopefully this is not a big ask.

    Other things that would really improve Content Explorer for our use case:
    - list/grid toggle button
    - ability to hide the modified date and owner (useless for our application which is a repository of read-only archived files uploaded by an uploader app)

  7. Provide read-only scope for user information

    I'd like to provide our central identity management team a way to tell whether or not a given Box user has a > 0 byte usage before they delete the user's account (for example, as someone leaves our organization). I'd like to give them read-only API access to https://api.box.com/2.0/users, without giving them any additional access. Support tells me that this isn't currently possible. It'd be nice if it was--this could be useful for a number of other uses, too, such as reporting.

  8. Allow to freeze changes to file and/or folders

    Allow to freeze file and folders, which will not allow any collaborators including the owner to create new versions of the files, to prevent move content in trash, to prevent change metadata. The purpose is to manage enterprise records. May be some sort of retention policy that lets us do the above. The current lock feature does not provide the level of freeze we are looking for.

  9. Allow the use of Linux devices as approved devices.

    We had Linux based user using Box web console and as of the July update, they are no longer able to access Box. I would like to see Linx OS be added to the approved Operating Systems list in the Admin Console for enterprise settings.

  10. Make Box Tags visible in Box Drive (on Windows)

    We have used Tags extensively to categorise content in Box, it would be great now that we have moved to Box Drive that these are visible against the folders displayed in here too.

  11. Lock a file being accessed with Office Online

  12. Integrate Tasks with personnel systems like Active Directory, Workday

    I spoke with a customer who wants to be able to create rules so that tasks can be assigned to specific individuals based on their reporting relationship. This would allow for a task to be assigned to the appropriate manager when any employee submits certain kinds of requests, perhaps with a file upload. The best way to do this would be with some kind of integration to the HR system of record.

  13. mfo

    Make MFO content searchable locally via spotlight/finder. With Box Sync locally downloaded content can be searched and accessed via Automator workflows. MFO in Box Drive should mirror Box Sync to truly be considered "Made Available Offline".

  14. Alert admin when users is reaching their allocated storage cap

    When allocating a maximum storage amount to a given user it would be very useful to as an admin receive an email notification when the user is approaching their limit so that the admin can proactively increase the limit to decrease any disruption to their workflows.

  15. New accounts requests should come to the admin for approval.

    New accounts requests should come to the admin for approval. Users should not just be able to make an account without any permission, it makes it very hard to control license usage.

  16. Freedom to move folders

    Content sprawl is our #1 challenge. Please let us organize our folders. We don't want to interfere with the permissions, but I want to have an "Active Projects" folder and a "Project Archive" folder where I can drag and drop those relevant folders in.

  20. Reduce increase in file size when watermarking content

    It is expected behavior that watermarking files will convert files to pdf upon download (if the user is not a collaborator) and greatly increase the file size.
