  1. Setting Folder Autodelete via API

    The automatic deletion date of a folder can be set from the web screen, but it seems that it cannot be set from the API.

    Could you please provide the ability to set this date from the API?

    We have a process that automatically creates thousands of folders using the API, but since it is not possible to set an automatic deletion date, a large number of past folders will continue to remain.

  2. Box Drive performance improvement request when using VDI

    The VDI is experiencing operational delays when using Box Drive, and this is affecting our business.
    It was found that the delay was caused by a large number of disk I/Os.
    We checked the Box Drive logs and found that Box was reflecting 1,000 to 2,000 operation logs on Box to each user every morning.
    Since the above operations occur simultaneously for all users, there is a large load on the infrastructure.
    Please improve performance.

    「VDI利用時におけるBox Drive性能改善リクエスト」

    Box Drive利用時のVDIで操作遅延が発生しており業務影響が出ております。
    操作遅延の要因としては多数のディスクI/Oによって発生していることが判明しており、
    Box Driveのログを確認した所、Boxから毎朝1000~2000のBox上での操作ログを各ユーザーへ反映されていました。
    上記操作が全てのユーザで同時に発生する為、インフラストラクチャに大きな負荷が掛かっています。
    性能改善をお願いします。

  3. External references between Excel files saved in Box by URL.

    In Excel saved in SharePoint, the URL can be used to refer to the value of a cell in the other Excel file.
    We would like a similar functionality in Box.
    For example, if the file ID is "1234567890" and we want to refer to cell A1 of "sheet1", do the following.
    ex) ='https://****.ent.box.com/file/1234567890[sheet1]'!A1

  4. Request to improve synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive"

    Request to improve synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive"

    We would like to request an improvement in the synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive so that they can be synchronized within 5 seconds.
    Our investigation of the synchronization speed is based on the following items.

    Pattern (3) Upload to Box Drive and check the screen update on WebUI: Result: No automatic update even after waiting for more than 5 minutes.
    Pattern (5) Delete the file on WebUI and check the update on Box Drive: Result: 20 seconds
    Pattern 6: Delete the file on the Box Drive…

  6. Get Rid of Waterfall Permissions - Allow Subfolder Security To Be Set Differently

    It is absolutely ridiculous that a company as large as Box is using waterfall permissions for all enterprise accounts.

    In a business environment, it is absolutely necessary to be able to set specific permissions on subfolders within a large data folder that all users have access to. This is a simple feature included with every other cloud file provider we've ever used.

    Needs to be included ASAP.

  7. I would like shortcut files created on Box Drive to be reflected on Box Web as well.

    I am aware that shortcut files (.lnk) created in Box Drive (on Explorer) are ignored as a file type and cannot be synchronized.
    However, in my work, I use Box Drive a lot and sometimes create shortcuts, but I can't share them because they are not synced, and they are deleted when I log out of the system.
    I feel this kind of specification is very inconvenient.
    I would love to see you respond to make this happen.

    (Japanese)
    Box Drive(エクスプローラー上)で作成したショートカットファイル(.lnk)は、
    無視されるファイルの種類として対象となっており同期が出来ないことは認識してます。
    しかしながら業務上、Box Driveの利用が多くショートカットの作成することがありますが、
    同期されないことで共有もできず、またログアウトしたことで削除されてしまう。
    このような仕様だと大変不便に感じてます。
    実現に向けて是非対応してほしい。

  8. use @mention in the Office suites of software (Words, Excel, PowerPoint)

    Currently, we are able to do commenting of the document in Box by using the @mention. But we are not able to do the same when we are editing document in the native Ms Office software eg Words, Excel & PowerPoint. The @mention does not work.

    Would like to have the same feature when we are working in the native document?

  11. Box Drive specification improvement request

    Box Drive is downloading a large amount of event streams, which can overwhelm company's network bandwidth. Due to the network bandwidth pressure, the business other than Box has been affected, so please take measures.
    Here are the details:

    Box Drive is likely retrieving folder and file events that the logged-in user has access to, but is aware that there may be a large number of event downloads in the following cases, for example:.
    ・A specific user performs bulk operations on a folder in which many users are collaborating. (All events are downloaded to Box Drives of all collaboration users)

  12. Using Box Sign for forms

    It would be helpful to leverage Box Sign to fill out forms. Currently, Box Sign does not allow for the Sign process to proceed unless a signature field is dropped into the document. We have a scenario where we wanted to have someone fill out text fields with various information as a step before a signature is placed. Perhaps a separate feature called Box Forms which allows those fields to be dropped in and populated onto a document before it gets to Sign?

  13. Import/Store external own contacts to use regularly as recipients

    This is where users have their own contact list with email addresses and want to use these regularly in unique documents rather than templates. The request is to import and maintain these so they can be easily looked up when adding the signers to send a document to.

  14. Disable signature frame

    Recently the Signature Frame is released on Box Sign.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/6993092241043-Signature-frame-in-Box-Sign

    I would like to have an option to disable this because we do not need it for internal sign.

  16. Ability for users to set sorting preference

    Box is not longer default showing files by file name. This requires resorting of files every time I open a folder, which is hundred of times a day.

    Please enable users to set the default sorting order for folders or restore the prior defaults

  17. Ability to read the EXIF data in the photos that are uploaded

    I need Box to read the EXIF data in the photos I upload. Having access to that would make categorizing and finding assets infinitely easier. If I could sort by the metadata already included with an image file I would be able to find by date, location, resolution, etc automatically. A default metadata template should be created that matches that of EXIF data so that it automatically loads. You could then find the images you want by searching the EXIF data then could apply other metadata to add more relevance.
