  1. Preview files about xdw, xbd and xct in Box for iOS.

    Please support xdw, xbd and xct files in Box for iOS.

    Box for iOS can preview files supported by Box, such as PDF.
    However, Box for iOS can not preview xdw, xbd and xct files (*1) for the following reasons.

    DocuWorks Viewer Light (iOS) (*2) implements Quick Look Preview Extension.
    Thus, an app can preview xdw, xbd and xct files if the app implements QLPreviewController.
    Although Box for iOS has already implemented QLPreviewController, previewing xdw, xbd and xct files are not supported by Box.

    *1)
    a) DocuWorks Document
    extension : xdw
    MIME type : application/vnd.fujixerox.docuworks
    b) DocuWorks Binder
    extension :…

  2. Box for Teams Integration for Private Channels

    Today, Box for Teams Integration does not support Private Channels.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044673394-Box-for-Teams-FAQ

    Many customers are using Private Channels and need full integration between Box and Microsoft Teams. We do want Microsoft and Box to work together to improve it.

    This limitation is due to Microsoft’s platform not allowing integrations to surface as messaging extensions (Box icon to upload and share documents). Until Microsoft supports this for third parties, Box is unable to deliver this functionality. We are working with Microsoft but there is no timeline for delivery at this point.

  3. Add fixed-width font options

    Ticket # INC4849532 - Customer wants to use Box Notes to write documents that contain code-snippets and excerpts from logs. They would like to use a fixed-width font for these snippets, but Box Notes doesn't allow them to select font and there's no style for fixed-width.

    The issue is the same as the one described in this forum post: https://community.box.com/t5/Web-App-Forum/Boxnote-fixed-width-font/td-p/31194

  4. Sharing a Collection

    I understand that collections are meant to be a user specific setting, however, it would be great to have the ability to share a collection with a co-worker.

    Thanks for your great suggestion! We know this capability would be hugely valuable. This is not something we’re currently working on, but we’re always considering feedback from customers like you in how we work with Microsoft to enhance secure productivity and collaboration.

  6. Box Drive (Windows) - Remember folder view settings

    We’ve been using Box Drive since launch, and it’s been an incredible improvement in our workflow. Only a small issue has made it notably less useful in saving time, and is a known issue documented here (community.box.com/t5/Box-Drive-Known-Issues..)

    Our file name and directory lengths are wider than the default for Box Drive/Windows. Normally Windows remembers preferences around column width, but in this case, as you know, Box Drive does not. This causes us to have to manually resize the “Name” field in every folder/directory, every time we access one. Therefore each user is having to do this perhaps dozens of times…

  7. Rename items and custom order in Collections

    Collections are great! Now the possibility to customize the display order as well as to rename items without affecting the actual folder/file name would be great additions

    Thanks for the feedback. Currently, collections are sorted by 1) Favorites and 2) personal Collections in alphabetical order. We do not have plans currently to allow renaming items or sorting order.

  8. Metadata table(row: files, column: metadata keys)

    We are looking for a table type of view of files(row) and metadata keys(column), that allows us to be able to configure their own views of data in Box.

    It allows us to...
    - configure the view with applying metadata templates(can select the keys to show)
    - filter and sort the view
    - update metadata directly from this view
    - export the view of data to a csv file

    This sort of solution helps users to reduce the time spent for searching the content and updating the metadata values(and it would be competitive with SharePoint library view).

    A box-native metadata table is not currently on the roadmap, but we have launched our metadata query toolkit alongside a content-explorer element that can emulate the same experience.

  9. My Collection folders to be kept open when opening another My Collection Folder

    Hi Team,

    A client has requested to be able to keep the My Collection folders open when they open another My Collection folder.

    Currently, when you select one of the folders in the left side menu, you can only open up one folder. When you select a new folder, it closes the previous one.
    It would be great if it is possible to keep the previous folders open unless the user wants to close it by clicking again.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    Thanks for the feedback. We have decided to allow only one expanded collections in the left side menu so we can maximize the performance of loading the left side menu.

  10. Decrease the line space between each files on the New UI

    Hi team ,

    I received a feedback from a client that the new UI made the line spacing bigger and would like to make the line space to decrease to before so that they can see more files in one screen.

    Can you please consider this or be able to have option to change the line space?

    Thank you in advance for the consideration

    Thanks for the feedback. We have made this change in order to make it easier for users to read and scan their file lists. While other users have made similar comments when they first saw the change, many of them have also told us they adapted to the change and prefer the new design.

  11. Customize Collaborator Permission Levels

    Any chance that we can have some flexibility in the "Collaborator Permission Levels." Can we develop a tool to edit these levels, like check which function the user can have. Having set levels with no flexibility is difficult because every user needs different access.

  12. My Collection and Favorite to be independent on the Web

    Hi Team,

    The client requested that My Collection and Favorite to be independent from each other on the Web so that it is easier to see each folder inside.

    The client has an image something similar to what is now on the mobile app.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration!

  13. Syncing bookmarks and Windows shortcuts between Box Drive and online.

    To better organize my personal Box files and share with teams, I've saved my files in the team folder and used a Windows shortcut (in Box Drive) in my personal Box folder to link files/folders elsewhere on Box. Box Drive doesn't sync Window's shortcuts so these links are lost when working online. The workaround online is to use the bookmark function, using file/folder URLs to create shortcuts. It would be great if bookmarks or window's shortcuts synced between online and Box Drive modes. At the moment I'm having to bookmark online and shortcut on Drive to link up files and…

  14. New Color Scheme

    The new left pane color scheme makes the menu items more difficult to read. In the prod environment the Favorites icons are easily recognized by their color, but in the beta UI they all seem to blend together.

  15. Dark Mode Option

    I think it would be nice to be able to either turn on a Dark Mode when I'm in a browser at Box.com or, have an option to select a different background color.
    Just one of those folk who have a time with bright white light ..

  16. Increase the maximum number of Shield Classifications beyond 25 so that we can classify each clients content to prevent mis-sharing

    I would like to see the ability to add Shield Classifications per client - with the appropriate access policy (restricting to client email domain) we could avoid any possibility to overshare when inviting the wrong clients into a folder or sharing a shared link - There is a maximum number of classifications of 25 so could this be extended to facilitate this use case/control.

  17. File Security Classification, non-compliance label

    When viewing a folder, it is currently not possible to know if there are files within the folder structure that have a differing classification label from the one at the root level. This "non-compliance" could potentially be problematic, or even a signal that someone has inadvertently changed a classification. It would be nice to have some kind of visual indicator that the top-level classification label is not 100% cascaded throughout the folder/file structure below it in the waterfall.

  20. Move "Trash" UI button away from "Upload New Version"/"Download"

    When a file is selected (but not being previewed), the updated placement and design of UI buttons make it easy to accidentally select "Trash" when I mean to select "Upload New Version" or "Download." Please move the "Trash" button to a location that would require more determined thought to select it. Alternately, "Trash" could be spelled out or an otherwise more unique UI button.

    Thanks for the feedback. Currently, we have a tooltip that shows “Trash” when hovering over the icon. We will keep monitoring to see if other users share the same confusion.
