  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Add Relay Trigger action for Folder Metadata

    Currently you can trigger on the metadata values for a file. Can we add the same trigger for a metadata change on a folder?

    Situation: Parent folder metadata change should cause an action that affects all children. i.e. move the folder and all children to another location.

  11. Custom Subdomain on Upload API Endpoint

    When a Box instance is setup to use a custom subdomain, the upload API endpoint should use the subdomain. For example, acme.upload.app.box.com instead of upload.app.box.com. This will make it easy to setup corporate firewall rules that prevent users from uploading content into personal Box accounts

  13. Freedom to move folders

    Content sprawl is our #1 challenge. Please let us organize our folders. We don't want to interfere with the permissions, but I want to have an "Active Projects" folder and a "Project Archive" folder where I can drag and drop those relevant folders in.

  14. Global ability to lock all files that are opened

    We want all files "locked" when opened so that any other user would be notified that the file is opened by another user and they can look in "read-only" view.

  16. Email Upload Limit

  17. API endpoint to return ALL objects (recursively) but simplified to create browser tree

    I am using the jstree library in my application to create a full browser tree of a user's BOX resources. Please create an endpoint to return ALL objects (recursive) available to an authenticated user inside one root folder . These objects would only require the object ID, TYPE, NAME, VERSION and PARENT(parent-id as string instead of parent object). The jstree lib can take this data and create an entire file browsing tree and then users would call up more information when they click on an object. This would greatly reduce the number of API calls to your server and possibly…

  18. We would like to have the ablilty to create two folders in different places within our BOX environment and for these two folder to stay sync

    We would like to have the ability to create two folders in different places within our BOX environment and for these two folder to stay sync'd. If we add a file into one folder it is added to the other folder also. If we remove a file from one of the folders it is removed from the other folder. What ever change takes place in one folder is duplicated in it's sync'd folder

  19. separate owned file/folders view from all files/folders view

    We need the ability when viewing a users list of files and folders to show only content owned by user. Right now files that have any collaboration at all do not show differently if owned by user or not. Ideally, we could toggle a view filter to show only files/folders owned by user if needed.
