  1. Allow default sorting to "Favorites" and created "Collections" so that they appear alphabetically.

    If you have dozens or hundreds of folders in your "Favorites" and they are not sorted alphabetically, then it is nearly impossible to find your subject folder. Just make Favorites and Collections default sort alphabetically or give us the choice to set the default. Other people may want the last visited folder to be at the top, but still others may want to see it alphabetically. Please give us the option to do so as a default treatment.

  3. Box Drive search for specific folder

    Currently there is not way to search for a folder name offline. All you can search for is a file name. This can be problematic if you have multiple files with the same name, but just in different locations. Suggest being able to search for file name and then open file.

  4. Google Doc "share" from google.

    When using V2 of the box integration with google docs, apparently the ability to "share" the document from google itself, was apparently removed (it shows as available at 1:05 of this box video https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043696854-Inviting-Collaborators )

    Removing this functionality is not only cumbersome, it creates HUGE potential security issues.

    I would like users in our organization to be able to store these google documents in box, to avoid having to manage multiple file storage systems. For one thing, it is cumbersome and unintuitive to have to go to box to invite a person to collaborate with my google doc. And then…

    When using the integration, users can now share a Google file directly within the editor, using Box’s sharing modal permissions and settings.

  5. Sort Content preference saved

    In the old UI, you can sort by name or updated ascend/descend and the preference retains as you traverse the folders. In the new UI, the default is sort by updated and reverts after you change the sort order and traverse the folders.

  6. 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,…

  8. 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.

  10. Simplify "File Request" window

    I have users on my team still using ShareFile to specifically "request files" from external people because the process is simpler. Three key suggestions for the Box "File request" feature:
    1) Can you streamline the pop-up window to focus on the "link" versus the embed widget link. 2) Expose the option/checkbox of the requestor to receive an email when the content is uploaded.
    3) Allow the requestor to adjust the expiration date. Default would be tied to the admin link share policies

    Thanks!

  11. Box Shield

    It is common that companies have non-executive directors, and that they work without corporate email accounts. They could use gmail or another personal email accounts so they might want to blacklist free email domains, but have special dispensation for these exec's email addresses. So blocking all free email domains, with an additional granularity to allow certain addresses on a whitelist.

  12. Show progress bar for uploads when using file request widget

    We would like for the File Request Widget to have a progress bar for uploads, so users can see if their upload made it to Box or if it failed.

  13. Saving File Request Options

    If you open “…” > File Request in the folder, you will see the “File Request” function.

    There are 4 items in “Customize options” of file request.
    There is a checkbox for each.

    If you close the screen with this checkbox selected, the next time you open it, it is unchecked.

    Can there be a save button so that we are not mistaken that we selected settings for the link? Or can the settings remain checked so that when we re-open the option, we can see that we did select settings for the link?

  15. Either/Or Approvers

    Currently Relay does not support "either/or" approvers.

    We have use cases where we have multiple approvers in a process but only need a certain amount of approvers to continue the workflow. i.e. There are 3 approvers in a process but we only need 2 out of the 3 to approve.

  18. Getting Notifications that Don't apply to non-admins

    When I logged into Box this morning, I saw the following note in the lower right-hand corner of my home screen.

    Your Box account has been growing!
    A growing number of users at your company have signed up for Box accounts – exceeding the number seats included in your plan by {{MLDATAOVERAGE_SEATS}}. To adjust this license overage, add seats to your plan using the link below.


    1. We do have seats available

    2. I am not an admin so this shouldn't be a notification I should receive.

  20. Allow Metadata search for files uploaded via Box API

    Documents in BOX are not searchable based on Metadata when uploaded using BOX API

    Document uploaded into BOX via EPHESOFT using BOX API and 3 metadata elements are attached to the document. We can see the document in the BOX and the metadata elements are present in the Custom Metadata section in the BOX.

    There are two ways to find files in Box based on the metadata. The existing Search API provides a metadata filtering option and also indexes metadata content. The Metadata Query API provides SQL-like syntax for finding files based on specific metadata condtions. See https://developer.box.com/guides/metadata/queries/create/ and https://developer.box.com/guides/search/full-text-search/

    If there are unmet needs please add a comment!
