  1. IP whitelisting (Web App only) for BoxNotes

    We have heard that IP whitelisting with Web App only cannot control BoxNotes.
    Could you improve IP whitelisting as you can control BoxNotes with Web App only?

  2. 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. relay assign workflow

    When a user leaves the company, the admin (or the user) should be able to assign his workflows to someone else. So far, the admin can only deactivate a workflow. We have cases where the relay workflow has 46 steps and if the owner leaves the company, the job is lost. It is a waste of time. As well, folder problems should be highlighted if the user is replaced, thus allowing either the assignment of permissions to the folder(s) or the ability to switch to new folder(s).

  5. box drive sync progress

    When syncing large amounts of data or many items into Box, I don't have a number of items remaining unless I try to log out of Box drive while it is uploading. Could we take that information and put it into the Box Drive icon like it was displayed in Box Sync?

    This feature was delivered in Box Drive v2.20!

    Users can easily view upload and download progress in the new Transfers UI (accessible via the system tray on Windows or menu bar on Mac).

  6. Allow editing of annotations

    Sometimes I want to change the comment I left with an annotation. But the only option I get is to delete the annotation. So I'm forced to copy the previous text, delete the old annotation, and create a new one. That's annoying!

  7. Access Stats: Ability to export faster at scale

  8. Save box notes in collections

    Hi Box Team,

    currently I can mark a box note as favorite and it will eventually show up in my favorite folder. However, it would be great if I could add box notes to one or more of my collections. This allows me to better structure the information available on Box.

    Thanks

    Hi there!

    We just released the Collections in Notes feature this week. You should now see the Collections menu item when you go to the “…” menu in your Notes app (next to the share button). Hope this helps!

  9. 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.

  10. relay folder event in several folders

    When You create a Relay automation You only have the possibility to manager an event folder in one folder. If You need the same scenario in other folders, You have to duplicate the stream as many times You have needed folders.
    The best way is to get the possibility to choose all folders You need the same event with the same scenario in one shot and not be polluted with x time the same one only because the event has to be trapped in another folder.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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,…

  15. Keep workflows active even after users are deactivated

    I was reading through FAQs for Box Relay and I see that if a user is deleted their workflows are deactivated....

    With no way to transfer workflows from one user to another don't you see this as a HUGE problem with the product?

    If we are expected to use this in production to manage enterprise documents, what are we supposed to do when someone who created the workflows is removed? This would be a huge impact to any org. Especially if someone on a team is the creator of all the workflows. This would require someone to recreate them, and…

  16. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.
