  1. Update Box Sign font and style

    Right now the default signature font is much smaller than the date field and the signatures are, to be frank, childish looking. Just give me a boring monospaced font + date, maybe a watermark so that it looks professional. I feel like I'm going to be laughed at if I try and present this as an alternative to Adobe Sign or Docusign as it is now.

  2. Shared Box Sign group status dashboard

    When sending out Box Sign requests we need the ability for multiple team members to check in on how current Box Sign requests are progressing. They can't be tied to just the sender as sometimes staff work part-time and another staff member has to go in and push the signature along.

    It would be amazing to see Box Sign have access to groups for a group based dashboard e.g. Finance Team. That would enable everyone in the group to go in and track the current Sign requests and push them along when another team member isn't around to do so.

  3. Offer ability for "sign on behalf" in addition to "reassign"

    Need ability to have an option on signature page where you can choose to forward to someone else to "sign on behalf" in addition to "reassignment". Use case comes up when a admin assistant or designated party can sign "Jane x on behalf of John" versus just capturing Jane's signature when reassigned.

  4. Require PIV/CAC card authentication upon signing

    The US government relies upon PIV/CAC card authentication for existing digital signature validation. This is a key requirement for usage within this market segment.

  5. Box Sign - Ability to enable/disable for groups

    This request specifically impacts all Higher Ed accounts with student users. Universities are specifically concerned about students having the ability to send e-signature requests on behalf of the University or using University letterhead and have requested a way to have Sign mass-disabled for student accounts. The easiest way for now would be to include the ability to enable/disable by group on the Configure Sign modal.

  6. Query 2+ Metadata templates together

    I am interested in querying 2+ metadata templates together via the MD Query API. Right now, I can only query 1 template at a time.

  7. Shared Link Password Policy

    Much like the default link expiry policy we would also like one specific to forcing passwords for shared links and preferably being able to define that policy with minimum characters and complexity.

    Bonus would be passwords that are auto-generated and viewable by the creator of the shared links to minimize the need for external tools.

  8. Requests regarding Box For Teams V2

    I would like to use the Box For Teams V2 integration, but the following functions are bottlenecks and cannot be used.

    Therefore, I want to be able to turn off only the following functions in the tenant settings.
     
     ・Automatic creation of Box folders for teams/channels
     ・Automatic mapping of user permissions

    In most cases, Japanese companies use a controlled system in which the administrator owns the items.

    However, if folders are automatically created or permissions are automatically attached with the Box For Teams V2 integration, control cannot be taken, so we requested this.

  9. COPY / MOVE API events to include origin file's ID, name and location

    Currently there is no way to know which file was copied/moved in Box Events API. It is only possible to see the destination file name and location, and only if the file was copied/moved within one Box instance. This presents a major challenge for customers who want to build custom programs that monitor copy/move activity both inside and outside their Box instances.

  10. google shared drive

    Allow Google Drive "Shared drives" content to be copied directly to the integrated Box extension in Gsuite. Currently, this is only available from "My Drive". The work around is to copy "Shared drives" content to "My Drive" (which in itself is awkward, because only files, and not folders, can be copied directly in the cloud), and then copy content from "My Drive" to Box.

  11. Access policies for individual folders

    Would it be possible to set up access policies that can be applied per-folder instead of by Classification label?

    We have Ethical Walls and security concerns where we need to prevent sharing of files of Client A with Client B and also with preventing individual users from being shared folders.

    One way to do this would be classification policies - but I have far more clients than the twenty five label limit.

    The way around this would be to allow access policies by folder, regardless of classification, as well as the Box-wide access policy for unclassified content.

    Client A -…

  13. Show Auto-Classification Criteria Matches on Classification Label On File

    Auto-classification matches are currently stored within metadata on a file. If auto-classification classifies a piece of content, we'd like for the classification label indicator on a file (or hovering over the label) to show what criteria was met which requires a specific label. The purpose of this is to have a visual indicator to reinforce the sensitivity of content within a file.

  14. Restrict Collaboration for Individual External User

    Customer would like to have the ability to block individual external users from collaborating on their enterprise content. The external domain allow list is too broad if only one or two external users need to be blocked from collaborating on content.

  15. Retain annotations in subsequent version(s) of a document

    We use annotations when a group of us is proofing and suggesting edits to a document. When we're finished, when the designer makes our edits to the document, and then uploads a new version. Unfortunately, once the new version is uploaded, unlike general comments, the annotations are gone so we can't check in our changes. It would be great if you could make it possible to view annotations from the previous version of a document. Right now, the only workaround is to avoid using annotations, or to open the previous version of the document in a separate browser window and…

  16. Automatic email response for file request submitter

    Would like a feature whereby the person submitting files using Box File Request receives an automatic confirmation email with a customizable message. For example, after the submitter uploads files using the File Request web widget, that person gets a email to the effect of, "Thank you for contacting us. A team member will review your submittal and follow up within 24 hours." The person would be required to provide an email address but not required to have a Box account. Many of our external customers send us application materials using File Request, and then they contact us separately wanting to…

  17. Notification when someone is editing a file

    Since we don't have an option to check-in/check-out of files, can you add a feature like Dropbox's badge which alerts a user when someone else is editing a file so we prevent any simultaneous version history/editing issues?

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re actively researching in this area right now, so I’d love to collect any additional feedback you might have on use cases. For example: are you primarily looking for this notification on Preview? The files list? And in which applications – Web? Box Drive? Box mobile applications?

    Any additional information you provide will be much appreciated.

  18. Zoom.us video recordings archival into Box.

  19. ipad app

    I would like the ability to open documents from the Box iPad app in new tabs. Chrome allows me to do a long hold and be given the option to open in a new tab. This would be a nice function in the iPad app.

  20. Shield Alert - mark as resolved

    On the dashboard for Shield, you see a list of alerts generated through threat detection policies. We'd like to see the functionality where end users could mark an alert as seen and/or resolved so everyone who monitors the Shield alerts would know whether it's been resolved or open. This is similar to a ticketing system, but a simple notes body on the alert where someone could put an explanation of their response to the alert would greatly enhance visibility and drive better usability. Thanks!
