  1. Toggle the Activity bar or Side by Side off and On when using an IPAD.

    This is regarding the newest version of the IOS APP on an IPAD . When a user is using their IPAD as a laptop or in Landscape mode, the default is to have the Side by Side on. This shows a Blank Activities Pane. It would be great to only show the activities Pane if there are any notes. However the user should have the ability to toggle the bar, and regain the screen real estate.

  2. Changes to workflow builder functionality

    Create changes to workflow builder functionality:
    1. Allow folder Editors to be able to build workflows (we have very few co-admins)
    2. Allow the workflow builder to specify who is assigning the task (or make it generic.) Just because Bob builds the workflow doesn't mean his name should be on the assigning task.

  3. Match on File Folder Names, not Contents

    When I search documents looking for the document TITLE only, files with the text inside the document also show up in search. Can a title only pulldown be added?

  4. Inherit classifications when copying file from one folder to another

    In Box Shield Smart Access, if moved from Folder A, which is assigned the [In-House] classification, to Folder B, which is assigned the [Public] classification, Folder A's classification will be inherited.

    However, the classification of [In-house] in folder A is not inherited when the copy operation is performed, the [Public] classification assigned to folder B is assigned.
    Since the classification is not inherited by the copy operation, this function can be useful to prevent information leakage by implementing this function.

    Although today Box cannot run a report to display all classified content, you can use Box’s search functionality to search for content bearing a specific classification.

  6. Ability to exclude terms from search

    Would like the ability to narrow searches by excluding certain terms. Google permits this by allowing users to type the minus symbol in front of terms to be excluded.

  8. Ability to create "search folders" or "saved searches"

    Instead of doing a new search each time, it would be great to be able to save a search and run it at any time with one click. That search could appear in your All Files view as a Search Folder (e.g., named "New PDFs re XYZ") and when you click the folder it runs the search; or as a saved search accessible on the left menu.

  9. Create the file request link for each doctor's portal page in Japan

    Create the file request link for each doctor's portal page In Japan, the power balance of doctors and pharms are quite unique, and doctors are considered very high class and it is very hard for pharm to ask the doctor to create the box account. So pharm generally creates portal sites for doctors and they wants to create the links and embed to the pages. Create the file request link for each events Pharm host some conferences and they need to gather the documents and videos from doctor and other organization(like university and etc...). And also they are going to…

  10. Ability to draw on images in Box note or on .jpg, .png .gif files on mobile platform

    Hello, it would be great if there was a feature that I could draw on a photo directly (especially on the mobile platform), and ALSO to be able to draw on a photo INSIDE Box Notes.

    I can open a photo from Box on the desktop and it opens the photo in Paint and I can draw on it and save it back to Box, but I cannot do this on the mobile platform Box Edit Can't be used on mobile platforms :''( . I currently have to take a screenshot of the photo I want to edit, draw on…

    The ability to draw on images is available through our new Annotations feature. Simply open the image file in preview mode, tap on the new option for annotations (see attached image) and you can start drawing.

    This functionality is not yet supported inside of Box Notes, but we will consider adding this in the future!

  11. I HAVE JUST SPENT HALF AN HOUR TO FIND THE BOX DRIVE TO DOWNLOAD AND ALL I DID FIND IS ARTICLES OF HELP BUT THE ACTUAL LINK TO THE DOWNLOAAN

  12. Boolean search term support for web and Drive

    Would love to have boolean search support for both the web and Drive. If anything, an functional wildcard would be extremely useful.

  13. Relay: Copy or move the contents of a folder rather than the folder itself

    Currently Relay can copy a file or a folder, but not all the contents of a folder to a location. This would be really useful for content propagation, where the use case would be that every time a folder is created copy the content of a template to it.

  14. My application does not require download permission

    We would like you to provide a way in the developer console to remove the download permission from our application.

    We are worried about leaking access tokens.
    Our application needs Box administrator privileges. Then change the folder name or delete the collaborator.
    However, it does not access the content of files in box.

  15. Display warning if you are opening a file in, for example, Word Desktop when someone else has it open in Word Online.

    I know that you can see that teeny icon in the upper right of the preview window when someone is editing the file in Word Online, for example. But it would be great if there were a warning that pops up to tell you that someone has it open in Online, and to warn you of the consequences of editing it in Desktop. Users get really freaked out when they get the conflict error after the fact, and a warning would at least explain the consequences.

    0 comments  ·  Box for Office  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    Hello. This feature already exists in Box. When you have a file open in an online editor (either Office Online or GSuite), there are two indicators that this is occurring:
    (1) a tinycon next to the file name to indicate an open online editing session
    (2) the Open With menu is restricted only to the current online editing session, so you can join a co-editing session for the active tool, but desktop and any other editing tools are disabled for entry

  16. Allow users to test pre-release builds of the Box for EMM app

    Allow users to test pre-release builds of the Box for EMM app, similar to how users are allowed to test pre-release builds of Box for iOS via Testflight.

  20. Add and more events into a same flow in relay

    When You build a flow in relay, You don't have the possibility to add another event into this same flow as a result. This might help if You need to repeat a part of the flow (similar as a loop).
