  1. Add column for Modified date, and allow sorting on it.

    It would be really handy to be able to add a column for and sort based on "Modified date" field. Currently the "Updated" column is not useful if you are doing content migrations from outside sources. While the files maintain the "modified date", they get an "Updated date" of the day it was migrated.

    We are considering migrating our existing LAN contents to Box. Our users frequently need to sort on last modified date. We are uploading all data to Box and retaining the original date stamps where possible. Sorting is key.

  3. Shared link to open file directly in Box Drive

    Instead of opening in Web App, we should click a shared link to open in Drive.

  5. 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

  6. "Lock" a folder taxonomy

    This allows a folder owner (or developer) to lock a folder taxonomy in place so that Editors can add and update documents but not create or rename folders.

  7. Add fixed-width font options

    Ticket # INC4849532 - Customer wants to use Box Notes to write documents that contain code-snippets and excerpts from logs. They would like to use a fixed-width font for these snippets, but Box Notes doesn't allow them to select font and there's no style for fixed-width.

    The issue is the same as the one described in this forum post: https://community.box.com/t5/Web-App-Forum/Boxnote-fixed-width-font/td-p/31194

  8. Box Tools - Excel as default application for CSV and XLS

    We would like Box Edit to have Excel as the default application for all excel files, including CSV.

    Right now we run into an issue with CSV files where it is necessary to perform an operation to copy and then paste to Excel from Notepad. (Since opening CSV files might cause garble due to a character code (UTF-8), we are opening Notepad first and then open Excel files)
    Another workaround would be editing the registry which is risky and inconvenient - which is why we would like Edit to automatically open CSV with Excel as the default

  9. Seamless Sign On - Box Drive

    Like OneDrive, we want the ability for the box drive client to seamlessly sign into box without any user integration at login. This will benefit;
    - VDI users
    - Hot desk users
    - Students (e.g. lab machines)
    - First time logon for staff allocated devices

    We understand this won't work for everybody but we to SSO to box via Azure AD and all of our 7,500 managed devices are joined to both on-premises AD and Azure AD. In fact we're starting have a slow migration to pure Azure AD.

    This has stopped any large scale rollout and we have seen…

  10. Remember sort order for a folder

    Remember the sort order chosen for a folder, whether by date or by name. Some folders will always need to be sorted one way or the other - currently have to re-sort multiple times a day when going back and forth between folders.

  12. Sorting: Fix the Incorrect Numerical Sort Order

    The webapp currently handles number sorting in an odd (non-standard) way.

    For example:
    --For three file names beginning with: 1, 2, and 12
    --The webapp would sort these as: 1, 12, 2
    Which clearly isn't in the correct numerical order.

    Windows (and Finder) sort these correctly as: 1, 2, 12.

  14. Box Sign via Text / SMS

    Make it possible to send documents to be signed via text messages and other apps, such as WhatsApp, etc. Many of our clients don't have email addresses.

    Box Sign via Text/SMS is not under consideration for the future 2024 roadmap due to other priorities and effort. 

    Please continue upvoting the request, we will review this request again next year. 

  15. Trash file from its preview

    The trash command is missing from within the "..." button of the document view.
    The workaround requires a lot of extra steps: navigate to the parent folder, select the file, trash the file.
    Moreover it is not consistant with what is possible with folders: you can trash a folder from its own view.

  16. Sync multiple accounts to Box Drive

    Allow multiple accounts to sync with Box Drive.

    Many of us have multiple corporate/personal accounts that require local drive sync'd access.

    We’re not planning a ‘fast switch’ option to allow a user to easily switch between 2 different Box accounts on Box Drive while maintaining all cached data. The only option we have now is that users can ‘logout’ of their current account and sign into another account, but the caveat is that this will delete all their local cached data/MFO settings from Box Drive

  17. Convert BoxNote to PDF, DOCX, etc...

    BoxNotes would be much more useful if there was an ability to able to generate a PDF or other document format that can be stored in a more traditional method in Box. Some customer that work in the regulated space can't use BoxNotes for various reasons. But, in many cases there is an issue with the fact that BoxNotes does not follow the same retention capabilities we have in Governance. Also, Keysafe does not support BoxNotes, so it may be a workaround if BoxNotes were archivable.

    The initial idea would be to support PDF generation, but i can also see…

  18. Add Linux to Web app QA process

    The web app UX is horrible on Linux. It's not just one bug, but dozens of bugs that affect Linux and ChromeOS users.

    Examples:
    - Downloading a Docx will prompt you to open with Word instead
    - Clicking Open will prompt you to install Box Tools
    - Clicking install Box Tools will download an EXE file

    All of these are completely irrelevant and an annoying hurdle for Linux users. Box Tools for linux doesn't exist. Linux Users can't run EXE files. Open With Word doesn't make ANY sense, as Word doesn't exist for Linux.

    Please fix.

  19. Add separate "status" column to Box Drive application

    Box Drive has a known issue of overlay iconography sometimes not displaying after installed. This is affecting about 10% of our client installs and is an absolute headache and nightmare to resolve without registry updates.

    This is caused due to the Box Drive apps's reliance on the "Image­List_Set­Overlay­Image" function in Windows which has a hard limit of 15 values. Thus Box Drive's icons "compete" with other cloud providers' icons on priority and is totally unsustainable as you are at the mercy of how other cloud providers code their software to take precedence over others in this list (by playing the…

  20. Custom collaboration expiration periods for individual folder collaborators

    Currently, the only options for collaboration expiration on a folder is set at an enterprise level.

    The request is multipart, for the options to
    1) Set a custom collaboration expiration period at the folder level only (regardless of what the enterprise setting is)
    2) Set different expiration periods (e.g. 30 days vs 60 days) for different collaborators or groups within the folder
