  1. Ability to change the destination of Microsoft Teams Chat Files to any other Box folder

    We would like to be able to change the destination of Microsoft Teams Chat Files to any folder.
    Currently, it is not possible to change the destination of the Box to a different folder.

    (In Japanese)
    Microsoft Teams Chat Filesの保存先を任意のフォルダに変更できるようにしてほしい。
    現在はBoxの保存先を別のフォルダに変更する事は出来ないため。

  4. Ability to annotate pdf

    my users would really love a feature to allow PDF annotation of the actual PDF document without having to open the document in another tool. We can then retain the document/presentation and the notes for record keeping. makes for a super efficient meeting

    Hi Everyone, 


    please be informed you can annotate a pdf in your Box mobile app. 

    For more information, please refer to the following support articles:

    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360061177014-Drawing-Annotations-on-Android-Devices

    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360061632673-Drawing-Annotations-on-iPads-and-iPhones

    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360059971834-Document-and-Image-Files-You-Can-Annotate

    We hope this is helpful and your meetings are even more efficient with the annotations feature. 


    Thank you for helping make Box better!

    In case of any questions, feature requests or ideas please reach out to us.

  5. Ability to resize photos uploaded from Box Capture

    The size of the photos taken and uploaded by Box Capture is about 5MB each.
    In addition to Box, we also sync uploaded items to our on-premise server, so there is a capacity control on the server side, and a 5MB image is too large.

    We would like to be able to choose some upper limit of capacity when we take a picture with Box Capture.
    (We would like to have the ability to automatically resize the image when shooting in Box Capture).

    (e.g. high quality mode, standard quality mode, low quality mode, etc.)


    <Box Captureからアップロードされた写真をリサイズする機能>
    Box Captureで撮影し、アップロードされた写真のサイズは、1枚約5MB程度です。
    Boxのほかに、オンプレサーバーにもアップロードしたアイテムを同期しているのでサーバー側に容量の制御があり、5MBの画像は大きすぎます。

    Hello,

    thank you for sharing this idea with us. This suggestion is an existing feature, to change photo size please navigate to 'Settings' -> 'Continuous Capture' -> 'Photo Quality' and choose desired option. Hope this is helpful. 

    Thank you for helping make Box better! 

    Cheers,

  6. Add Folder Icons To Files In Mibile Application

    Currently, it is difficult to check whether files are locked or not in mobile application.

    The folder icon will be added to a file in mobile application as well as web browser.

  7. Application exemptions from Anomalous Downloads rule

    When configuring Box Shield rules, the anomalous downloads rule seems to be missing the option to exclude application names. I would like to exclude a specific application from the anomalous downloads detection rule.

  8. When choosing where to save email attachments, we would like the collection to be reflected in the choices.

    When importing email attachments into Box from the standard iPhone mail app, the Box collection feature is not available.
    This makes it difficult to reach the specified folder in the Box.

    Please make it possible to choose where to store email attachments from collections as well.
    In other words, when choosing where to store email attachments, the collection should also be reflected in the choices.

    iPhoneの標準メールアプリからメール添付ファイルをBOXに取り込む際、BOXのコレクション機能が使えません。
    そのため、Box内の指定のフォルダに到達するのが困難です。

    メール添付ファイルの保管先をコレクションからも選択できるようにしてください。
    つまり、メールの添付ファイルの保存先を選ぶ際には、コレクションも選択肢に反映させて欲しい。

    In order to accomplish this request, please first save the file to a location inside Box. You may then select the file and “add” it to a collection for reference.

    Collections are links to files rather than their saved location, hence you are not able to save a file directly into a collection.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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?

  14. Threat detection at the classification level

    Threat detection at the classification level. Specifically, we would like the ability to monitor suspicious location and/or suspicious download for a particular dataset rather than the entire content population of our account.

    Today, you can easily add previews of your desired file types (pdf, word, video, etc) by using the Embed button in the tool bar, or by selecting “Include Preview” when pasting a shared link in the Box Note.

  16. 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.

  17. Allow multiple OAuth Reply URLs

    Currently, an application can only be defined with a single OAuth Reply URL. This is very restrictive for applications where multiple authentication endpoints are required.

    The workaround is to define multiple applications, but this doesn't scale well.

    In my experience, all other OAuth providers I've used allow for many URLs to be defined within a single application.

  18. Instructions for installing cli on Linux

    Why don't you at least include some guidance on https://developer.box.com/docs/box-cli regarding where to start if you are using Linux? I have been unable to effectively use my box account since the webdav support ended, and every so often take another stab at it. It would be nice if this page at least pointed to the best resources for installing on Linux, rather than just giving a link to the download pages.

    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.
