  1. Open files in Box from "Box Files" tab in Microsoft Teams

    Currently I only see a way to launch a file in Box (for editing, commenting, etc) from the content card posted in a Team Channel conversation. I can't see a way to launch a file directly from the "Box Files" tab in Teams. Even an overall "Open Folder in Box" button would help to direct the user to the correct Team/Channel folder created in Box.

  2. Managing/Drawing Diagrams in Box

    Box already integrate MS Office to be able to temporary dowload a office document for edit but also allows to update MS Office documents online in the browser.

    I would like to see similar functionality for diagrams.

    Draw.IO is a diagram tool that you can use offline and online app.diagrams.net
    So it would be easy to provide working with diagrams in Box very easy.

    Function A: Online Editing of draw.io files with embedded drawio or passing it to app.diagrams.net

    Function B: Allows to temporary download drawio files same as with ms office documents.

  4. Outlook add-in

    I like the saved folder location feature so that I don't have to navigate thru folders every time to choose the destination folder when saving attachments. Thank you.

  5. approve TOS via Salesfotce integration

    you cant approve TOS through the SF integration. you get the notification, they you click agree, then there is a white screen and nothing happens.... then you need to approve again.
    looks like a bug.
    you can only approve via webapp.
    very frustratins

    you should have same capabilities via the SF integration as we get on webapp.

  6. Salesforce integration default permissions

    Currently the Box for Salesforce integration only allows for 2 collaborator levels; Editor & Viewer. Our users require higher collaboration permissions in order to manage the folders. It would be ideal that you could use some sort of admin console on the Salesforce side to manage the integration. Of course, that access wouldn't only be for the user acting for the Box Service account.

  7. Ability to edit file on external apps without saving files locally

    Ability to edit file on external apps without saving files locally.

    For example, if user would like to edit files on "Microsoft Office" app, they need to set “Files can be saved to device: On “ on Admin console > Enterprise settings > Mobile
    But some users cannot set "ON" due to their security policy. "Open In" icon is grayed out.

  8. NetSuite move folder contents and link when converting lead-prospect-customer

    I discovered that when you change a customer between the stages of lead/prospect/customer that because each type is linked it's own "Box Record Type Config" and each of those have their own "Record Type Folder Name", that when you go from lead->prospect the files that were originally uploaded to Box that have a folder inside the "lead" folder group does not move with the NetSuite customer change. Hence to the user it seems that the files are lost but really just the link is lost.
    There needs to be code change that when a customer stage is changed that any…

  9. Could Box have integration with Adobe Bridge?

    When I add tags to files in Bridge, they do not show up on the file when I look at the image in Box. I was told by your support department to contact you so that this integration could be created.

  12. Ability to Change Current Root Folder for Box.com integration with Salesforce

    To make sure our Salesforce sandboxes are kept up to date with our production instances. We refresh our Salesforce Sandbox every quarter. With the manage package installed after we refresh the Salesforce instance. We don't have the ability to change the Current Root Folder to a different folder meant for our Sandbox (We have different folders for different Salesforce Sandboxes) and the refresh sandbox is pointing to production. We have to uninstall the manage package and then reinstall and change it to the right folder. Since we have code that is using this, this can't be easily done. Asking for…

  13. Edit Box files directly in Teams

    When files are stored directly inside of Teams, you can click on these files and “Edit in Teams” directly. If you click on files sourced from Box, however, you get an ugly preview of the file and have to navigate to Box in order to make edits, which is a clunky experience.

    Doing this will require Box to inherit sharing rules as defined in Teams. In other words, I should be allowed to at least view if not edit files shared with me in Teams, even if I don't have access to the underlying folder in Box. Perhaps it could…

    We are exploring approaches to enable editing within Teams as this is a highly requested feature. Given the complexity to implement, we do not have a shareable timeline at this point.

  15. Ability to use Box embed widget on separate Salesforce apps (such as "Sales Console")

    Ability to use Box embed widget on separate Salesforce apps (such as "Sales Console")

    Salesforce has features like "Sales Console" that has a different UI/UX than what Box for Salesforce integration currently supports, and Box embed is not behaving correctly within those apps. We would like Box for Salesforce to support the apps of this kind.
