  1. Remove File Size Limit

    File sizes only continue to grow as video quality improves due to better technology. Our video teams have some files that are 700 GB or more. We are unable to use Box as a backup solution because of the file size limit.

  2. If I move a file, let me leave a hint to the new location in the original folder

    When a shared file or folder is renamed and/or moved to a different folder, retain a hint in its original location that it's been moved so that "Search in folder" can helpfully inform that the file/folder has been moved or renamed, and provide a link to the new location. The user does not need to see the current name of the file, or its new location. When they follow the link, they access the file/folder according to how it's shared at its new location.

    An expandable "Recently moved" area in each folder could provide a compact list of files and…

  3. Ability to edit file request

    I created a file request with 3 different file request upload boxes (videos, images, quotes), but didn't know that users MUST upload something into the first box or they would get an error. It would be VERY helpful to either be able to edit a file request (so I can change it to just one upload box) or allow people to upload into ANY of the file request boxes.

  4. Folder Under Retention Should Not Be Purged From Trash

    When a folder is deleted from trash that contains files under retention policy it causes issues because the files are no longer visible to the customer to recover them. This happens if the trash admin setting is set to purge all trash in a certain time period.

  5. Ability to recognize shared links with passwords

    I would like to see the icon change to show whether the shared link has a password or not, so that I can easily tell from the file list whether the link has a password or not.
    共有リンクにパスワードが設定されているかどうか簡単に分かるよう、パスワードなしとパスワードありでアイコンを変えてファイル一覧からでも分かるようにしてほしい。

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. "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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
