  1. Add a report that lists metadata set for folders and files.

    There are many metadata templates, and each users can set them.
    In this situation, being able to see in lists what metadatas are actually applied to which files/folders and what values ​​are set can be very helpful in managing contents and metadata.

    Our Product Managers are gathering feedback and additional use cases regarding this suggestion. Please add your comments and support this suggestion so we can prioritize it accordingly. If you can add a sample or a report structure you'd like to see, that would be helpful!

  2. Shared Box Sign group status dashboard

    When sending out Box Sign requests we need the ability for multiple team members to check in on how current Box Sign requests are progressing. They can't be tied to just the sender as sometimes staff work part-time and another staff member has to go in and push the signature along.

    It would be amazing to see Box Sign have access to groups for a group based dashboard e.g. Finance Team. That would enable everyone in the group to go in and track the current Sign requests and push them along when another team member isn't around to do so.

  3. 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.

  4. Enhance Metadata Search for Text field for Japanese language ("contains" instead of "exact match")

    Currently, texts in Metadata can only be searched by exact match especially for Japanese characters. We would like to see an improvement to make it "contains" search as it is available in the standard search.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Offer ability for "sign on behalf" in addition to "reassign"

    Need ability to have an option on signature page where you can choose to forward to someone else to "sign on behalf" in addition to "reassignment". Use case comes up when a admin assistant or designated party can sign "Jane x on behalf of John" versus just capturing Jane's signature when reassigned.

  8. Shared Link Lookup Tool

    Problem: Admins often need to do investigation of files stored in Box and all they have to go off of is the file/folder's shared link. Since admins can't search by shared link in the current Content Manager UI, a Shared Link Lookup tool would provide similar information.

    Key Features:
    -Provide ability to enter a shared link (standard or vanity URL)
    -Information returned after searching:
    -File/folder name
    -File/folder owner
    -File/folder location (Owner -> Folder hierarchy)
    -Status (whether the file/folder has been deleted or not)
    -Admin-level 'delete' (ability for the admin to delete the file on the spot)

  9. Folder path under Trash

    Under Trash, please add "folder path". If there was a bulk delete of many files in a folder, we want to confirm the file belongs in the folder path, before we restore the files.

    Box currently offers Collections and Metadata on the web app. I would love to understand the gap between those two features and the user needs so that we can come up with a solution that will solve your problem.

    (You can use custom metadata to "label" folders; these custom metadata are searchable in the search bar. Please bear in mind that there is some delay in indexing the metadata, so you will not be able to search the new metadata immediately.)

  11. Templates - Restrict Templates to Specific Users/Groups and/or Folder Structures

    Metadata templates are currently global across an entire EID. This does not scale well for large organizations with 50,000, 100,000 or more than 200,000 users.

    This request is to add 'scope' parameters to Metadata Templates such that a specific template can be restricted to...
    1. A specific set of users
    2. A specific set of Groups
    3. A specific Folder structure

  12. Add a threaded ‘Reply’ button to comments and @mentions

    When you are @mentioned, replying to the sender with @mention requires many clicks. It would be simpler to be able to reply to the sender in one click (i.e. add a comment with sender already @mentioned)

    We would like to be able to preview files encrypted with Microsoft MIP from Box.
    Because it is not supported by the current MIP integrator.

  14. COPY / MOVE API events to include origin file's ID, name and location

    Currently there is no way to know which file was copied/moved in Box Events API. It is only possible to see the destination file name and location, and only if the file was copied/moved within one Box instance. This presents a major challenge for customers who want to build custom programs that monitor copy/move activity both inside and outside their Box instances.

  15. Box Sign Template Edit Underlying Document

    My customers who use DocuSign today are accustomed to applying a Signature template to a document. For example, I have a contract I am going to make edits to the language of the contract, the date, the dollar amount, etc. and then apply a signature template and send it off.
    In Box today, I've found that you can either use a template (but the underlying document cannot be changed) or you can utilize template tags via API (which are handy, but I imagine my less tech savvy clients would find them challenging to set up).

  16. Ability to download comments and print comments

    Would like the ability to download and/or print comments associated with a file. Perhaps via additional selections to "Download Comments" and "Print w/Comments".

    I understand downloading comments may need to be a separate file as the content could be in various application types and comments are not created in that document type. Printed files convert to PDF so it would be great if the comments could be converted to PDF and added directly to the printed file.

    Downloading and printing comments has been a request on the Box Community site from multiple people who have also listed some of their…

  19. Automatic email response for file request submitter

    Would like a feature whereby the person submitting files using Box File Request receives an automatic confirmation email with a customizable message. For example, after the submitter uploads files using the File Request web widget, that person gets a email to the effect of, "Thank you for contacting us. A team member will review your submittal and follow up within 24 hours." The person would be required to provide an email address but not required to have a Box account. Many of our external customers send us application materials using File Request, and then they contact us separately wanting to…

  20. 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.

    Please share specific use cases for remembering sort order for a folder. I would be interested in understanding whether this sort order will be determined by the folder owner or will vary depending on the individual users.
