  2. Instructions for installing cli on Linux

    Why don't you at least include some guidance on https://developer.box.com/docs/box-cli regarding where to start if you are using Linux? I have been unable to effectively use my box account since the webdav support ended, and every so often take another stab at it. It would be nice if this page at least pointed to the best resources for installing on Linux, rather than just giving a link to the download pages.

    We are in the process of gathering feedback on usage of the Box CLI. If you would like to share how you intend to to use it, please feel free to do so in the comments. Once we’ve reached on a decision we’ll make sure to update this request.

  3. Support Bookmarks (Weblinks) in Box Drive

    Box allows users to add Bookmarks (weblinks) within folders in the webapp, but these Bookmarks aren't exposed in Box Sync currently (though they're exposed in the mobile apps).

  4. Collaborators Page (Item-Level) -- Add Ability to Sort by Column Headers / Filter by External Collab

    The Collaborators page (at the file/folder level) currently does not allow any sorting capabilities. Add a simple ability to click the column headers to change the sort order to things like "added most recently at top" or "reverse alphabetical order by name". Additionally, adding an "external?' filter to only show external collaborators in the folder would be awesome.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Though I see how useful additional sorting on the Collaborators page would be, due to various technical constraints we don’t currently plan to implement this functionality.

  5. 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

  6. Syncing bookmarks and Windows shortcuts between Box Drive and online.

    To better organize my personal Box files and share with teams, I've saved my files in the team folder and used a Windows shortcut (in Box Drive) in my personal Box folder to link files/folders elsewhere on Box. Box Drive doesn't sync Window's shortcuts so these links are lost when working online. The workaround online is to use the bookmark function, using file/folder URLs to create shortcuts. It would be great if bookmarks or window's shortcuts synced between online and Box Drive modes. At the moment I'm having to bookmark online and shortcut on Drive to link up files and…

  7. Edit Box files directly in Teams

    When files are stored directly inside of Teams, you can click on these files and “Edit in Teams” directly. If you click on files sourced from Box, however, you get an ugly preview of the file and have to navigate to Box in order to make edits, which is a clunky experience.

    Doing this will require Box to inherit sharing rules as defined in Teams. In other words, I should be allowed to at least view if not edit files shared with me in Teams, even if I don't have access to the underlying folder in Box. Perhaps it could…

    We are exploring approaches to enable editing within Teams as this is a highly requested feature. Given the complexity to implement, we do not have a shareable timeline at this point.

  9. 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.

  14. Add external collaborator's expiration date on collaboration report

    In the collaboration report, there are invited date and accepted date, but there is no expiration date. Would it be possible to add expiration date in the collaboration report?
    Because it is too tough to confirm the expiration date one by one on the collaboration list page or using API, I demand the way to confirm enitre expiration date easily.

  15. "File Request Link" report similar to the "Shared Link" report

    Would like Org level report on what folders have "File Request Links" very similar to the "Shared Link" report. We need to report on what folders are shared publicly.

  16. 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.

  17. User-Level Option to Default to 'In This Folder' Search

    Currently, 'in this folder' searching is an opt-in for each search that a user performs. Some users, however, would like webapp search to mirror the experience we already provide on mobile, aka always defaulting to doing an 'in this folder' search. REQUEST: Add a user-level setting (within a user's Account Settings) that allows them to opt-in to always defaulting to 'in this folder' searching (meaning the 'in this folder' checkbox in the quicksearch filter will always be checked unless the user manually unchecks it for a specific search).

  18. Allow admins to see that a user is placed on the email suppression list

    When a user is placed on the email suppression list they are unable to receive any notifications from Box. When they create a support case with this helpdesk about this, time is wasted because they cannot see for themselves that this user is on the suppression list due to bouncing emails.

    This suggestion is not under consideration for our roadmap. We are currently focusing on improving the performance and UI to manage users in the Users & Groups tab. We will revisit this request to make removal of users from the suppression list self-service in the next 6 months. In the meantime, we will explore short-term options to notify the admin if a user is added to the suppression list.

  20. New type of user - Managed External User

    Box users need a way to: authenticate and manage external users + invite them to collaborate in a more efficient manner, similar to how it is done with managed users via groups.
