  1. Box Zones Japan with using Microsoft Azure

    Comply to Japanese regulation which requires to store flies in Japan.
    That helps to accelerate Microsoft co-sell motion in Japan.

  2. Require Editing ONLY via Office Online for Certain Files (disable Box Edit at the file level)

    Use Case: I have a spreadsheet that I know will be highly collaborative; as such, I want to prevent people from being able to use Box Edit with the file and I want to require that they edit it using Office Online due to enhanced co-authoring, etc. Basically, this would be a 'only allow edits using Office Online'-type setting at the file level.

  3. Last Activity - Add 'Last Activity' Info & Sort Option to Managed Users Page

    We currently do not expose the 'Last Activity' field for Managed Users anywhere in the Admin Console. This is a very helpful piece of information for admins to have easy access to in order to get a good idea, quickly, whether a user has recently been active in Box or not. REQUEST: --Add a 'Last Activity' field/value for each user in the list of users on the Managed User page--Add 'Sort By: Last Active Date' to the Managed Users page so that admins can easily see who is recently (or not recently active)

  4. Allow bulk actions to be interrupted (such as copy/move/restore/delete)

    When users copy / move / restore / delete a large number of items, we want them to be able to cancel if they notice a mistake along the way.
    Currently, when processing a large number of items in Box, we need to wait until the process is completed even if we notice a mistake.
    When processing large numbers of items, processing may require several days.
    During that time, folders and files are locked.
    Please make it possible to interrupt the process on the way.

  5. Remove multiple collaborators from folders

    Box currently does not have a way to remove multiple collaborators at bulk.
    Currently, admin needs to manually remove multiple users by opening the appropriate folder and removing users one at a time.

    Suggestion can also apply to removing collaborators from multiple folders.

  7. Box for Teams Integration for Private Channels

    Today, Box for Teams Integration does not support Private Channels.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044673394-Box-for-Teams-FAQ

    Many customers are using Private Channels and need full integration between Box and Microsoft Teams. We do want Microsoft and Box to work together to improve it.

    This limitation is due to Microsoft’s platform not allowing integrations to surface as messaging extensions (Box icon to upload and share documents). Until Microsoft supports this for third parties, Box is unable to deliver this functionality. We are working with Microsoft but there is no timeline for delivery at this point.

  8. 'Compare Versions' View in Preview

    The ability for a user to view 2 versions of a file side-by-side in Box Preview to compare the differences.

  10. Admin Trash -- Include Items in 'Trash' when using Search in Content Manager from the Admin Console

    Search in the Content Manager does not currently include items in Trash. This is a security/eDiscovery challenge currently.

  14. 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.

  15. Notification when someone is editing a file

    Since we don't have an option to check-in/check-out of files, can you add a feature like Dropbox's badge which alerts a user when someone else is editing a file so we prevent any simultaneous version history/editing issues?

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re actively researching in this area right now, so I’d love to collect any additional feedback you might have on use cases. For example: are you primarily looking for this notification on Preview? The files list? And in which applications – Web? Box Drive? Box mobile applications?

    Any additional information you provide will be much appreciated.

  16. Updates for Task Management

    Task management should:
    -Show a total number of tasks outstanding
    -Have the ability to categorize tasks
    -Have the ability to prioritize tasks
    -Include summary of time elapsed since task assignment
    -Always allow the user to check the task off, reject the task, or delegate the task to another
    -Task list should ALWAYS be searchable
    -Task lists should have the ability to have filters applied (age of task, assigned by, prioritization level, category, etc.)
    -Task auto assignment based on adjustable rules would be a plus

  17. Allow beta, 1st party, and 3rd party app whitelisting for Groups in addition to users

    When Box launches a beta for a feature, we can now opt-in to the beta directly from the Admin Console - which is great!

    Currently there are 4 options to enable:
    -- Enable for all managed users
    -- Enable for select managed users (whitelist)
    -- Enable for all managed users except specific users (blacklist)
    -- Disable for all managed users

    This request is to allow admins to select Groups for the whitelist in addition to Users which are already supported.

    We are currently developing solutions to enable 1st / 3rd party apps and specific enterprise settings by groups of users in the enterprise. We will provide an update when this makes it onto the roadmap.

  18. Drive: Search for offline files when disconnected from internet

    Box Drive should have search functionality when offline and for items that are marked for offline.

    Thanks for your great suggestion! We know this capability would be hugely valuable. This is not something we’re currently working on, but we’re always considering feedback from customers like you in how we work with Microsoft to enhance secure productivity and collaboration.
