  1. 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.

    Thank you for your feedback! This is on our roadmap for Q3. The feature will enable you to cascade a workflow to subfolders, starting with workflows built with the Manual Start trigger. Please feel free to post additional requirements or use cases in this Pulse suggestion for us to consider. Thank you!

  2. Make admin console reports (Folders & Files, Collaborations, Shared Links) run at scale

    I saw on the Community site that there is a 10 million item limit, but my company has way more items than that. It is important for us to have these reports for security audits.

  3. Drive: Notifications when there is simultaneous editing happening

    When multiple people are simultaneously editing in Drive multiple versions save as different copies. There should be notifications so people don't have to lock files to let others know they are editing a document.

  4. Request a file link for Editors

    Many of my customers are requesting for Editors to have the ability to generate request a file links. Owners and Co-Owners have very omniscient capabilities for folder configurations that Editors may not need (nor do the Owners want them to have) but because Editors do much of the editing and information creation/modification, it would be helpful if they could have the ability to request content.

  5. Add an option to File Request only for managed users

    We would like to gather files from internal managed users avoiding spoofing. Currently, one way is to use collaboration as uploader permission but uploader can still see file name each other where multiple users are collaborated. We need to make users authenticate and do not want to let them see information of other's uploaded files.

  6. Proper 2-factor authentication with TOTP not SMS

    Using SMS for 2-factor authentication is oudated and insecure. Using TOTP is an industry standard and should be implemented.

  7. Display Shield classification labels by default beside the name of each item in a folder

    When viewing the contents of a folder, it would be beneficial to the user experience to see which items are classified and how without needing to select the item or attempt to preview it.

  10. When copying a folder with File Requests configured within it, add an option to have the File Request configurations copied as well.

    We have a need to setup folders with File Request features for our customers. When we do this manually, it takes a lot of time to set everything up as we need it. We'd like to be able to copy a folder (along with its subfolders) and its File Request setup. This would make any existing setup, like a template, which we can simply copy and rename in preparation for another customer.

    Currently, we can only copy the folders with or without contents. But either action does not copy the File Request configurations in the source folder.

    Thanks for your…

  11. File Request Notifications when the folder owner is the admin on silent mode

    We are aware that users can get notifications for uploads done via File Request Link - However, these notifications are based off the folder owner.

    Some enterprises have silent mode enabled on the admin, which suppresses the admin activity. If the admin is the owner of the folder, no notifications will be sent for these file request uploads.

    We would like to request a way or setting for the uploads done via file request link, to send a notification - regardless of silent mode.

  12. Box Relay variable support

    Could we have a variable for approvers Instead of harcoding them to a relay?

    For example, if a document contained a metadata field for approver and it was populated with a user, could we use that metadata as a variable for the approval step of the relay workflow?

  13. There should be a way to copy or clone File Request form templates to new directories instead of resetting to the default template.

    Our department is using File Request links on our Box Enterprise account to provide donors with a simple submission form to upload digital materials for our collections.

    We would like to set up one folder for each potential donor who will be submitting digital collections for us to review and process. (This will make it much easier for us to manage submissions, to review them for security, and to track them for procesing.) However, we also need to customize the File Request submission form for directories to include a standard boilerplate of instructions and to request a description of the…

    Scenario for Request Link via API: 1) Ticketing system support case requires the openee to upload files to the ticket 2) Use app to collect case number, authenticate user, create folder with case number 3) Set File upload link "Title", "Add Instructions" and "require users to provide email" 4) Get file upload link from API for pasting into the support ticket

  15. 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.

  18. Create a group and then assign them tasks all at once

    When assigning a task we have to add each assignee one at a time. Can we create a group and assign all at once? I send off to 11 and Barbara has 18 names.

  19. Add list of Groups user is currently a member of to the Managed User Screen

    In the "Edit User Access permissions" section of the Managed User page, there is a list of all the groups and a column to indicate if the user is a member. Admin must scroll through all the groups (1000's) to find which groups the user is in.

    Would like to see a separate section that just lists the groups the user is currently a member of.

    on roadmap  ·  katiele responded

    We’re currently re-designing our Managed Users page and displaying only groups that a user is a member of is a huge improvement we’re introducing in this re-design. This will be released in the first half of 2020.

  20. Disable File Request Feature in Enterprise Settings

    Disabling the File Request feature in enterprise settings should be offered to Admin's of an enterprise that want to restrict any unknown collaborators from uploading content.
