  1. Email to Box

    Box to email is a powerful feature when combined with email services. If you would like to automatically forward emails when using Gmail, its either all or nothing (all the emails would have to be sent, or none).

    This is due to the fact that Gmail requires a verification code to be entered when creating an email rule to addresses off the Gmail account domain.

    If there would be a way to read the body of the message for the verification code, this could reduce issues with forwarding and the volume of messages forwarded to Box.

  3. Enable auto complete for internal users when collaborating

    When going to share a file or folder with an internal user, unless you have collaborated in the past, auto complete does not come up. In fact when you put in the internal email address, it shows a globe as if the user is external. A way to use a directory sync would be helpful, but since not all users have Box in our domain, showing just those with accounts suffices and would actually be the most helpful.

  4. Bring back WebDav support

    Please bring back WebDav support. It had better performance than Box Drive or Sync and was easier to setup for Linux or Windows.

  5. 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.

  6. Ability to download more than 10 concurrent zip downloads at once

  8. Password Mail

    When we share the open link with password, currently we need to create the new email and send the password separately.
    If we have the Email Icon to send password, we can work this on only Box.
    We would like to create the new Email icon to send email from Box web console.

  9. Redirect for URL Should Always Fire After Box Subdomain Change

    After changing your Box subdomain, the URL redirect should always fire, regardless of logged in status, sharing permissions on the file, etc. Currently, it will not fire if the file is shared with "anyone with the link" and the user is logged into their Box account.

  10. Permission expansion - excluding folder management

    I’d love a “File manager” permission that doesn’t include Folder management capabilities.
    We have a large folder structure that I need to allow our users to have Editor permissions to for them to properly do their job. My issue is that it is CRITICAL that the folder structure doesn't change.

  11. Prevent copy/move actions during upgrade

    When upgrading, current files should be maintained so there is no loss of workflow and access to files other than for making change.s. There should be a freeze on all changes to the folders so that folders are inadvertently moved and duplicated and manipulated by those that have access. Currently those without anything but viewing permissions can go in during the upgrade and copy and move files and change permissions so they have access. That should not be. Files should be frozen.

  12. "inactive" or "archive" flag maps to less-expensive storage

    FEATURE IDEA:
    Provide ability to flag/classify files and folders in a way that allows Box to move them to a less-expensive storage offering on the back-end. This can be referred to as an "inactive" or "archive" flag.

    BENEFITS & BACKGROUND

    During the Box Higher Education Community Monthly Open Discussion on January 11th, an idea to submit to Box Pulse was formed, and seemed to have support from all in attendance (25-30 institutions).

    Box acknowledges that there is a growing concern around constantly increasing storage, and the costs associated with it. The majority of files stored in Box are perceived (or…

  13. Add the optional message text on Shared Link Email to the event in the API

    When a user clicks the email button the Share Link screen they have the ability to enter an optional message to the person they are sending the link too. This optional message is not captured anywhere in the Box system or event stream. The only way to capture a record of this optional message is with the Compliance Email Archive. Customer would like for this optional message be captured in the event stream so 3rd party compliance software can capture that information. This is an issue in regulated industries like Wealth Management in Financial Services that require logging ALL potential…

  14. Can't access a file shared with me

    Collaborators are uploading files to my user folder, but I can't see them.
    When they send me a link, I get a message that file has been removed or is unavailable for me.

  15. Back Button When Viewing Collaborators

    Usually when you go "in" or "down" a level by opening a folder or a file within that folder, there is some sort of "go back" feature in Box itself like a file path where you can click back out to the parent folder or an X to close a document. But when you click on the icon to show you who the collaborators on a document are, it seems the only way back is to use the browser's back arrow.
    (Also it would be even better to simply show the list of people who can access the file at…

  16. Expose Box's "Notification Email" field to SAML provisioning and syncing

    The "Notification Email" functionality in Box is very helpful for @mentions, file sharing invites and other user notificaitons that need to go to an email address other than the email address used to sign into Box. This can be the necessary when a company has subsidiaries on a common directory infrastructure, but one or more subsidiaries is still maintain the old email identities for day to day work. There are likely other reasons to use this field.

    Email: john.doe@mothership.com (Used to sign in.)
    Notification email: jdoe@subsidary.com (The correct email address for user notifications.)

    Box's SAML integration allows an Identify Provider,…

  17. View file audit log with "Deleted users" name on files even after users have been removed.

    It is not a feature of Box to allow "file audit logs" to persist on files showing a deleted users name as the person who made the changes and currently when you remove a user all the collaborators (non-admins) can see is "user made change" instead of the person's name. Yes, you can pull a file management report, but that is for admins and does not provide the teammates of the file any insight as to who was the person that made this change, nor does it help admins determine it easily either. I would like for the product to…

  18. Ability to access box when email is updated and user is signed via SSO

    that when a client is using SSO and it sees an email update that it will update the email address in Box. Reference Case #2497722.

    e.g. john.doe@company.com has a box account via sso, the box account is under john.doe@company.com. When John changes name to john.doe-smith@company.com, the user cannot access Box because the Box account did not automatically update with the user.

  19. Please add Linux to the support for Box.

    【Background】
    As we use many Linux servers, the total size of the log files is also large.
    Please add Linux as supported, as we want to save the log files stored on the Linux server to the Box.

    【Request】
    Box does not support Linux.
    In the past it was possible to access the Box via WebDAV, but this is no longer supported.
    Please add Linux to the support for Box.
    It would be preferable if it could be mounted like WebDav.
    If the folder on the Box can be mounted on Linux, the application can simply change the specification of…

  20. Allow multi-file downloads greater than 20GB by streaming as gzipped tar

    Downloading multiple files via the Box web interface is currently limited to a total file size of 20GB. I assume this is due to needing server-size storage to create a temporary zip file for the download. If, instead, there were an option to download the selected files in gzipped tar format, there would be no-need for additional server-side storage (because both tar and gzip are streaming formats) and there would be no need to cap the download size.
