  1. Add "Like" button to comments

    I would like to "like" comments on the preview so that is is easier to show that I have checked the comment without typing a new comment to say I have checked it.
    We are now getting more use to using reactions from Slack/Teams that it would be nice to react with a "like" or a thumbs up reaction.

  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. Need more input field types and options for Box Sign

    Requested Box Sign Fields: Drop-down boxes, radio buttons, attachments

    Requested Options: Conditional fields, KBA authentication, bulk sign, embedded form links

    We need more fields and options to be able to adopt Box Sign fully like the current major eSign providers have.

  5. Box Sign Template Edit Underlying Document

    My customers who use DocuSign today are accustomed to applying a Signature template to a document. For example, I have a contract I am going to make edits to the language of the contract, the date, the dollar amount, etc. and then apply a signature template and send it off.
    In Box today, I've found that you can either use a template (but the underlying document cannot be changed) or you can utilize template tags via API (which are handy, but I imagine my less tech savvy clients would find them challenging to set up).

  7. Intercom Integration

    With the level of customizations and integrations available in Box, it becomes necessary to offer live internal support for our users from time to time. We would like to integrate our customer support solution, Intercom, into Box to help us quickly field questions and walk people through issues.

  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.

    (日本語)
    Box For Teams V2連携を利用したいが下記の機能がボトルネックになり利用できない。
    そのため、テナント設定で下記機能のみをOFFに出来るようにして欲しい。
     ・チーム/チャネル用Boxフォルダの自動作成…

  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. Ability to reduce file size when image is scanned via the Box mobile app

    Ability to reduce file size when image is scanned via the Box mobile app.
    - Currently, the size of PDF files obtained when we scan a document via the Box mobile app, is very large.
    - Example: Box app on iPhone file size - 7.4MB; Apple's "import from iPhone" file size: -3.9MB. - Could we have the ability to resize / reduce quality of these files?

  11. Add a report that lists metadata set for folders and files.

    There are many metadata templates, and each users can set them.
    In this situation, being able to see in lists what metadatas are actually applied to which files/folders and what values ​​are set can be very helpful in managing contents and metadata.

    Our Product Managers are gathering feedback and additional use cases regarding this suggestion. Please add your comments and support this suggestion so we can prioritize it accordingly. If you can add a sample or a report structure you'd like to see, that would be helpful!

  12. Users should be able to set up 2FA on their phones

    We invite external users who only have phones. However, we are set up for 2FA. That means these users need to find a computer to login via the webapp to set up 2FA before we can begin collaborating. This is an issue. The mobile interface should allow 2FA to be set up.

  13. UI enhancements for easy viewing of pdf files on iPhone & iPod

    When displaying pdf files using the Box App on iPhone & iPod, after scrolling to view the top of the file, the app seems to take control over the display and auto-scrolls the file upward causing the top of the file to be outside of the screen. Is there any way to correct this? Thank you! 8-)

  14. I want the ability to add comments to the version history

    Now in the version history you will find the version number (for example: V1,V2...) is currently listed in the version history, the version number (for example: V1, V2...).
    We check the contents of V1, V2... in the preview and restore the version.

    However, as the number of versions increases, it is difficult to find the exact version you need, so please add the ability to add a simple note in addition to the version number.

    【日本語】------------------------------------------------------------
    現在バージョン履歴では、バージョンナンバー(for example:V1,V2...)が記載されています。
    私たちは、V1、V2...の内容をプレビューで都度確認し、バージョンを復元しています。

    しかし、バージョン数が多くなってくると、必要なバージョンを的確に見つけるのは難しいため、バージョン番号のほかに簡易なメモを併記できる機能を追加してください。

  15. + button should be disabled with "Restrict content creation"

    Users belonging to tenant with "Restrict content creation - Only admins can create and delete first-level folders, files, and bookmarks" setting enabled can see "+" button for adding content on their root folder screen of Box for iOS mobile app.
    They can operate through "+" button, but it fails due to the restriction.

    The customer believe that "+" button should be grayed out if this restriction is in effect.
    The customer wants the same to happen because "+" button is grayed out in the folder that the user is accessing with VIEWER privilege.

  16. 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.

  17. Box for Teams v2: Bunch of files will be shown when the files has shared in direct chat

    When the files has shared in the direct chat, it will be uploaded in "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder on sender side, on the other hand, for the receiver side, files will be listed in the top directory, which leads to list bunch of files in the top directory.

    It would be nice, if the new folder will be created for the each chat under "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder and add collaboration for the folder when the direct chat has started.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
