  1. Direct Links for files on Box Drive

    We have Excel files that reference each other that we moved from local drives to Box Drive. The links change to whatever box folder we move them to, but the path is listed as "C:\users\username\filename"... etc. We need these links to reference the actual Box URL so that other people who have access to the file can still get the updated reference.

  2. Changes to workflow builder functionality

    Create changes to workflow builder functionality:
    1. Allow folder Editors to be able to build workflows (we have very few co-admins)
    2. Allow the workflow builder to specify who is assigning the task (or make it generic.) Just because Bob builds the workflow doesn't mean his name should be on the assigning task.

  3. Display warning if you are opening a file in, for example, Word Desktop when someone else has it open in Word Online.

    I know that you can see that teeny icon in the upper right of the preview window when someone is editing the file in Word Online, for example. But it would be great if there were a warning that pops up to tell you that someone has it open in Online, and to warn you of the consequences of editing it in Desktop. Users get really freaked out when they get the conflict error after the fact, and a warning would at least explain the consequences.

    0 comments  ·  Box for Office  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    Hello. This feature already exists in Box. When you have a file open in an online editor (either Office Online or GSuite), there are two indicators that this is occurring:
    (1) a tinycon next to the file name to indicate an open online editing session
    (2) the Open With menu is restricted only to the current online editing session, so you can join a co-editing session for the active tool, but desktop and any other editing tools are disabled for entry

  4. Auto-Update Drive so there is no end user interaction needed

    We have 15000 users and trying to manage manual updates for Drive is tedious and often painful.

    Box Drive will silently update without user interaction if an update is available when the user launches Box Drive (such as after they reboot their machine)

  5. Easily replicate folder structure for projects

    We would like the ability to better manage templates of existing content so that he can very easily replicate a folder structure within Box for ongoing projects.

  7. Create robust shared link reporting

    Such as: The ability to nominate specific folders and all content within for which a report should be generated; Timestamp for when a Shared link was created; Who created it; What share permission was set and any settings that were applied; Timestamp for when a Shared link was changed/updated; What the new permission and settings are; Who changed it; Timestamp for when a shared link was removed; Who removed it

  9. Swipe between previews on mobile (outside of webapp)

    Currently, users would need to click on a picture to preview it, then close the preview in order to preview something else. This is not an acceptable user experience.

    Dropbox does provide this functionality. Would it be possible to add the "swipe" option to navigate between previews?

    This feature is currently available in our iOS app when previewing images. When on an image preview, swipe left or right to view other images in the folder.

    To see all images in a folder at once, you can also take advantage of gallery view. From an image preview, tap on the icon in the top right corner that looks like four squares. This will launch you into gallery mode, allowing you to see all images in a folder and select between them.

  10. Export audit report of completed workflows

    The customer has a requirement to be able to export information out of Relay in report of Excel format - ex) export a report of the steps completed in a workflow with due dates, dates of completion, by whom etc so they can present this information to clients or have it for internal audits. the workflow dashboard view is a helpful visual but they don't want to click in to each workflow to visually consume that information each time and be able to send it to other folks outside of Relay

  11. Metadata driven Automations

    Customer wants the ability to push an approved item into multiple folders at once, which would be done using Box automations with metadata, where specific metadata can be added to push items into specific folders. For example adding metadata ?a?, ?b? and ?c? to a document will move the file to folders ?a?, ?b? and ?c?.

    Paid Relay customers can leverage metadata to configure different outcomes

  12. Provide Workaround for 'New Note' Button when EID Has 'Restrict Content Creation' Enabled

    If an admin has the "Restrict content creation" setting turned on in Admin Console -> Enterprise Settings -> Content & Sharing, the new note button will be grayed out. This is because new notes are created at the first-level (root folder) and this setting blocks that.We should provide a workaround - either still allowing the 'My Box Notes' folder to be auto-created or by replacing the 'New Note' button with additional functionality that allows the user to choose an existing location in which to create the new note.

  13. Ability to create "search folders" or "saved searches"

    Instead of doing a new search each time, it would be great to be able to save a search and run it at any time with one click. That search could appear in your All Files view as a Search Folder (e.g., named "New PDFs re XYZ") and when you click the folder it runs the search; or as a saved search accessible on the left menu.

  14. Relay: Copy or move the contents of a folder rather than the folder itself

    Currently Relay can copy a file or a folder, but not all the contents of a folder to a location. This would be really useful for content propagation, where the use case would be that every time a folder is created copy the content of a template to it.

  15. Allow admins to log users out of all box sessions or api for revoking tokens

    Admins would like to have the ability to force a log out from all devices and sessions. This could be for:


    • User termination

    • User's SSO credentials compromised (attacker could grant access to a third party app, which keeps a session alive even if sso credentials are reset)

    On an API perspective, there could be an endpoint which destroys all tokens for a user, and it would require "manage users" from an admin perspective.

  16. File folder tree report needed for potential security breach

    Scenario: Employees have improperly stored data in box.com by marking data as public that should not have been labeled in such a manner. The data is sufficiently sensitive that the company would like to quantify and evaluate what has been labeled in such a way to make the data public.

  20. Boolean search term support for web and Drive

    Would love to have boolean search support for both the web and Drive. If anything, an functional wildcard would be extremely useful.
