  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.

  3. 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. Create a Task to provide a notification

    Create a Task to provide a notification to a user. For example if a document has been moved, this Task would create a notification to Bob that the file has been moved. He shouldn't have to do anything with this or approve or complete it, just be notified.

  6. 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).

  7. Locked Files

    It would be REALLY great if there were a way in Box to pull up all of the files you have locked. My team shares tons of excel files all day long. If I forget to unlock a file, no one else knows if they can get in. Half the time I'm not in it but forgot to unlock it. If there were a way to pull up all files at any given time in one place that I've locked where I could unlock them from that screen if I'm no longer in them, it would save us a lot…

  8. Folder path under Trash

    Under Trash, please add "folder path". If there was a bulk delete of many files in a folder, we want to confirm the file belongs in the folder path, before we restore the files.

  9. Allow the use of Linux devices as approved devices.

    We had Linux based user using Box web console and as of the July update, they are no longer able to access Box. I would like to see Linx OS be added to the approved Operating Systems list in the Admin Console for enterprise settings.

  10. "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.

  11. 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…

  12. Increase the 10,000 Limit for Groups

    Currently if you create more than 10,000 groups, the groups at the bottom of the list alphabetically cannot be searched for when creating a collaboration.

  13. Save the actual name of past collaborators on box rather than have them named prior collaborator

    Would like to have the ability to keep the name of a past collaborator on a Box file instead of it being named past collaborator

  14. Email Address Lists Shield

    To support ethical walls, it would be advantageous to be able to create lists of email addresses for different teams within the same company so that collaboration and shared link access can be restricted. Example for private side, public side employees within an investment bank content could be classified for each with access controls in place to prevent sharing and collaboration.

  16. remove the character limit on invite messages. the message portion is vital my account and sending specific instructions on folder use

    remove the character limit on invite messages. the message portion is vital my account and we need to sending specific instructions on folder use and access. this is best when included with the link to the folder as sent by box. ALSO there is nowhere on the site or in the share section that even states there is now a character limit, instead it's just kicking back the invite and preventing it from being sent.

  17. 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.

  18. File Type request: .log files (text)

    A lot of applications output their logs with the extension .log. These are just text files (.txt) with a .log extension. Unfortunately, files with .log extensions can't load in preview. Please allow .log files to load in preview (for desktop and mobile interfaces).

  19. Using Smart Access

    When entering a List when creating a Shield Smart Access Policy, have drop down appear that shows all available lists with short descriptions so the user doesn't have to try to remember the names of the lists they created or what they generally contain.

  20. Make DocuSign Required Envelope Fields show in the Box Integration

    We currently have fields that are required on every envelope for our DocuSign account (Envelope Custom Fields). These fields are not available to enter data (in our case, it is a pull down list) in the Box Integration. Therefore, envelopes created through the Box integration do not have these fields.

    We can get the fields on the envelope via applying a template that includes the fields. However, we would like to see the fields without using a template.
