  1. Smaller icons for Box Drive on windows

    The "status" icons on folders/files in Box Drive cover up 80% of the thumbnail for the file (or folder itself). This happens when explorer is set to list or details view.

    This makes scanning a folder with many documents for a particular file type extremely difficult, as there's not much visual distinction between excel, word, and ppt docs when they're all covered by one of the Box Drive syncing status icons. The PPT/Excel/Word logos are completely covered with just a vague hint of color peeking out.

    It would be ideal to figure out some way to make these icons smaller,…

  7. File Request - Assign to Other Collaborator Permission Levels

    Please allow Editors to send File Requests. Currently, only Owners and Co-Owners can send file requests. It would be extremely helpful if Editors could as well. In our organization, we have many with editor rights that could take advantage of this feature and would gain great efficiency . Making these users a Co-Owner will not work with our current permissions segregation.

  8. Box Sync to Box Drive uninstall/install tool

    I currently have Box Sync installed across the enterprise and want to move over to Box Drive without each user having to manually uninstall sync and install drive. Looking for a tool that would allow end users to perform uninstall and install all at once.

  11. Metadata Inheritance (Folder-Level) via Cascade Policies

    Allow metadata fields to be applied at the folder level, with files in that folder (or added to that folder) automatically inheriting the metadata fields AND potentially the values associated with those fields.

  12. Outlook Web App (OWA): Add Box Integration

    Customers with O365 Microsoft licenses need a way to attach from Box in OWA (Outlook Web App). Currently the Outlook web integration only extends to the free version, i.e. Outlook.com (https://www.box.com/blog/new-ways-to-work-box-office/).

  17. Allow Searching by Last Name - Invite Collaborators / Email Shared Link / Comment @Mentions

    In the Invite Collaborators modal (and other locations such as the Comment composer), Box's autocomplete feature only allows the user to search by either email address and/or first AND last name. Meaning for user John Doe with email jdoe@box.com, a search for...--"John D" will populate correctly--"jdoe" will populate correctly--"Doe" will NOT populate correctly REQUEST: Allow searching by last name (without having to enter first name before).

    Thank you for submitting this request. We’re pleased to announce that we have added support for searching by last name and email address when sharing from the Box web application. We hope to expand this functionality to our comments support in a future release.

  18. Group Admin - Customizable Permissions

    Currently the Group Admin role is an all or nothing option, which, for some, provides far too many permissions (instant log in, etc.).Just like Box has customizable co-admin roles, Group Admin permissions should be split out in the same way.

  20. Add Missing Color Profiles in Box Preview

    Image capture devices (cameras, document scanners, etc.) and image display devices (computer monitors, cell phone screens, printers, and so forth) all have different natural color and tone characteristics. One camera may be more sensitive to reds, while another camera will react more to blues. Some LCD displays may naturally be brighter or darker than others. Depending on which two device, we are comparing, these differences may be subtle, or very large and obvious.

    Color profiles provide a means by which an output or display device can make accommodations for these differences, meaning that your image can appear more or less…
