  1. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  2. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  3. Relay lite: allow admin to change the workflow owner

    Box Relay creates a workflow (Folder creates a task that requests invoice processing and is used to manage outstanding tasks) that enables clerical employees to process invoices more efficiently. However, when the employee is transferred, the workflow that has been created is not transferred to the next person in charge. If a useful workflow can be managed as a company, not as an individual (Change the workflow owner for contact changes), it will be very useful for business efficiency.

  4. Allow the "User Activity" report to be run for a folder and all sub-folders & content within that folder

    Today, the admin may select to run the "User Activity" report for a particular folder. When run for a particular folder, the report will only filter on the contents of the selected folder, and not the contents of subfolders within. Request that the report includes the folder and all sub-folders & contents within that folder, removing the need to run the report at the enterprise level and filtering to a particular folder path from there.

  5. Allow bulk actions to be interrupted (such as copy/move/restore/delete)

    When users copy / move / restore / delete a large number of items, we want them to be able to cancel if they notice a mistake along the way.
    Currently, when processing a large number of items in Box, we need to wait until the process is completed even if we notice a mistake.
    When processing large numbers of items, processing may require several days.
    During that time, folders and files are locked.
    Please make it possible to interrupt the process on the way.

  6. filter the activity report with specific classification

    We want to get the activity reports for specific classification(just like specifying the folder).

    We need to audit user activities for confidential files every quarter. Current activity reports can only specify the user, date, folder and action, not classification.

  7. Jump to the same path on Box Drive directly from Box Web

    Like Dropbox app, we would like a capability to move directly from Box Web to Box Drive. The usecase behind this is that we want to edit a file from Box Drive not Box Edit but want to search on Box Web.

  8. box drive sync progress

    When syncing large amounts of data or many items into Box, I don't have a number of items remaining unless I try to log out of Box drive while it is uploading. Could we take that information and put it into the Box Drive icon like it was displayed in Box Sync?

  9. Allow users to share built workflows

    Allow workflow builders to share their workflows with each other. Currently workflows need to be rebuilt by each user whereas it would save a lot of time to be able to share these workflows that have already been built.

  10. Box Drive: Change cache location

    It would be really awesome to allow the box drive cache location to be placed somewhere other than C:\Users<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Box\Box\cache, say on on a separate volume that doesn't consume space on C: (boot / application drive). Ideally I would like to place it on my second ssd D:

  12. Add "remove collaborator" option as option in a Relay workflow

    In the same vein as being able to Add a collaborator as part of a Relay workflow, it would be nice to also Remove a collaborator as well. Customer would like to Add a collaborator as part of a workflow, have that collaborator do their part, then have them removed as they no longer need access to the content going forward.

  14. Edit Box files directly in Teams

    When files are stored directly inside of Teams, you can click on these files and “Edit in Teams” directly. If you click on files sourced from Box, however, you get an ugly preview of the file and have to navigate to Box in order to make edits, which is a clunky experience.

    Doing this will require Box to inherit sharing rules as defined in Teams. In other words, I should be allowed to at least view if not edit files shared with me in Teams, even if I don't have access to the underlying folder in Box. Perhaps it could…

    We are exploring approaches to enable editing within Teams as this is a highly requested feature. Given the complexity to implement, we do not have a shareable timeline at this point.

  15. Tables - need change the background color

    I think the table need to be change background color. Background color can use to make table header or important table cell.

  17. Automatic classification based on filename

    We would like to be able to automatically classify certain files based on filename. We have files of a certain type, that always have the same file extension, that are always high-value assets for us. To be able to automatically classify these and change permissions around external sharing for them would be a big win for us. Without it, we either have to educate our users to always classify these manually, or be content with the possibility of them being outside our security preferences. However, we should also be able to un-classify them, in the rare event that one of…

    Thanks for the feedback! Users already have the ability to selectively sync (mark content for offline access) today in Box Drive. What I believe you’re asking for is a curated view of content you select to show up in Box Drive. That’s something we’re considering as we think about how to solve the content sprawl issue in Box Drive.

  19. "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" when running a report on a specific folder

    When running a report on a "Selected Folder" would be helpful to be able to "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" versus having to select each and every file/folder.

  20. bulk manage Shared Links

    Provide a way for all shared links in an account to have their permission levels / access levels / expiry dates modified in bulk, rather than having to change each one individually which is extremely time consuming for large doc sets.
