  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. I want multiple approvers on every workflow.

    We have external approvers and one of them should be able to advance this workflow.

  14. 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).

  15. Direct Links for files on Box Drive

    We have Excel files that reference each other that we moved from local drives to Box Drive. The links change to whatever box folder we move them to, but the path is listed as "C:\users\username\filename"... etc. We need these links to reference the actual Box URL so that other people who have access to the file can still get the updated reference.

  16. Ability to set a legal hold on multiple users in one operation

    would like to be able to set a legal hold on multiple users (400 users) in one operation. The reason behind why is that “it would be a huge time saver for organizations that have lots of users to be able to add them all to a legal hold or other governance policy at once rather than one at a time. If there were a master distribution group such as “all users” that could be used instead of having to start typing each user’s name one by one that would do the trick.”

  17. Print in Preview Mode when using web-based Box

    It would be a game changer if Box added in the ability to print documents directly from the preview view while using the browser version of Box. It is very time consuming and labor intensive to have to open each document in their native application to print them. If we could instead print documents directly from the preview mode in the browser, it would make things much easier.

  18. possibility to call another relay automation

    I made a scenario with relay and I would like to use it into another instead of creating again and again same flows. So it would be nice to get the possibility to combine different scenarios as sub-scenarios (like procedures in a program).

    As part of paid Relay, you can set various metadata values to trigger different aspects of the process.

  19. Able to get Box user ID by querying the username

    Hi, currently in order to find a box user id for ONE user, we need to use
    https://developer.box.com/reference#get-all-users-in-an-enterprise
    to get ALL users and then filter for the specific user.

    If would be nice if we can simply query a user's box user id by the username.

    There is an optional parameter called `filter_term` which can be used to retrieve a user on the basis of the name or login. See link below and a snippet from the dev docs.
    https://developer.box.com/reference/get-users/#param-filter_term

    `filter_term`
    Limits the results to only users who’s name or login start with the search term.

    For externally managed users, the search term needs to completely match the in order to find the user, and it will only return one user at a time.

  20. Provide VDI Support for Sync

    Alternatively, get added to the citrix virtual computer to your account.
