  1. "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…

  2. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  3. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  5. Published Version Indicator

    Add the ability to mark(flag) a specific version as "Published" then provide filtering at API and in UI for "Show Published Only" - This is basic capability required for any controlled doc use case, allows for single version tree audit of documents. Should also provide "Was Published" to distinguish between past released and draft versions.

  6. File uploads are extremely slow.

    File uploads are extremely slow. For example, a group of 3 x 20Mb files might take an entire day to upload on a 5mb.s connection. This has happened in the past 3-4 weeks.
    I found the root cause of it. I am in New Zealand and redirected to the Tokyo server, which is very very slow. I verified that this upload path is an issue thus:
    Tried to upload a 20Mb file using browser (via Tokyo) - 2 hrs later the file was at 20% upload. Cancelled the upload.
    Connected a VPN onto Los Angeles. Uploaded the same file (and…

  7. Copied photos do not carry any of the comments made on the original file.

    Comments that I have added to photos do not remain when I copy those photos to other folders within box. This is terrible as I now have to go through all of the copied photos for a second time and manually add all the comments that are associated with the original picture files.

    Please fix this.

  8. I want to be able to upload/stream data in real time to a secure Box folder

    Drone operators, Tik Tok users, event planners, wildlife professionals, military training heads, aircraft pilots -- off the top of my head, these are just a few great uses for streaming media files in real time directly to a secure Box folder. Omit the extra, less-secure step of capturing material on a mobile device (laptop, outdoor camera, phone, and so on), and then uploading it to Box. And never worry about the camera, phone, or other device holding your precious content failing or becoming lost before you've had a chance to view/upload the data.

  9. Moving shared folders should be simple and not involve changing ownership

    Many people in my organization share folders with me. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM ends up in my top-level directory. But some should be in one folder and some in another. I should be able to move any shared folder, even ones I am not a collaborator on, to ANY place in my directory structure without changing the physical storage space and without worrying about ownership. Why should the sharer have a right to clutter up my top-level directory with so many folders? It's pages and pages of stuff on the web interface. Since the real data is physically stored…

  11. box is blocking PSD and PNG files embedded in PDF files

    Box is blocking PSD and PNG files embedded in PDF files. The PDF will be uploaded, but the space where the PSD or PNG file should be is blank.

  12. upload speed limit

    There should be a possibility to limit the upload speed in order to still being able to work during the upload of larger files. Currently there is no possibility to limit the upload speed which leads to Box using all my upload bandwidth.

  13. Ability to restict folder view to only show folders the user owns

    Allow ability to restrict folder view to ONLY those folders which the user owns. Either a separate view or something like a checkbox to enable/disable the restriction.

    For example, a user is leaving the company and wants to transfer ownership of their folders to another user. There is no easy way to see what folders you own. With hundreds of folders it could take a long time to find the ones you know to transfer them.

  14. Removing Selected Subfolders

    I am a software developer, and I use Box so that I can access my code at work and at home. If there is a folder called Project1 with my solution files in it, the act of opening that solution or building that solution will create both a "bin" and an "obj" folder that both contain several hundred megabytes of data that does not need to be sync'ed. When I stop debugging and change the code to run it again, now I have 2 copies of nearly identical data still being pushed up to the cloud and being downloaded by…

  15. Add non-client usage tracking

    I often give out links to content in my box.com account. It would be great if you kept track of how often the content was actually accessed. For instance, number of clicks per link per day including whether item was previewed only or downloaded.

  16. Ability to request a bulk download of data sent to us via hard-drive .

    Allow us to request a bulk download of our data which Box would fulfill at their technical support center. This would enable us to receive multiple Terabytes of data without bogging down our corporate network or using applications which are prone to download failures. The data would be stored on hard-drives or solid state drives either purchased through box or sent to box to fulfill the request

  17. Ability to see (and if permitted, restore) deleted files

    Box currently does not have the ability to show deleted files in a particular folder. Only the owner and the user who deleted files will see them in Trash but not by folder. With large numbers of files in multiple folders, this becomes quite unmanageable quickly and relying on the folder owner to restore files is unnecessarily restrictive.

    Folders should have an option to see deleted files and if permitted (editor or higher, or a separate permission) allow users other than the owner and the user who deleted files to restore them.

  18. Fix file/folder size, counts, dates and storage

    I'd like to preface this by saying that this is a bug that needs to be fixed, not an idea. Even so, Box suggested we post this here to get others to chime in and say that this should be fixed.

    This is a problem that's been around for at least 1.5 years.

    Often, when an account's folders and files are transferred to someone else, the account from which the data was transferred still shows something greater than 0 bytes owned. This becomes a problem for deleting that user, because we can't be sure if the transfer worked, and we…

  19. secondary domain

    Add the ability to resolve a second or multiple number of subdomains to one box instance.
    ie; companymain.app.box.com AND companytwo.app.box.com would both resolve to one managed instance. This would be useful for using shared links and having a drodown or option to use a different subdomain for either a department or umbrella organization housing data for various organizations.
