  1. Watermarking feature turns document to a PDF and loses all formatting

    Currently the watermarking feature turns the selected document to a PDF, therefore losing all formatting from the original application. In excel the document loses all formatting features, including tabs, etc. Watermarking should not lose the formatting of the original document - and/or allow for watermarking feature to only be used when downloading and not in the view features.

  2. Watermarking only for downloads

    Watermarking in the Box view is intrusive. Allow for water marking feature to be marked as an option for downloaded materials only.

  3. Automated way to manage 2 Step verification for external collaborators

    Provide API support to manage 2 Step verification settings for external collaborators .
    Our use case is to "enable only for select domains/users". It is difficult to impossible to manage this for 1000's of external collaborators via the admin console. looking for an API support here to automate the process of managing the external user's 2 Step verification settings. The API should offer
    1. Add external collaborator domain and specific email id to the 2 step verification
    2. Query status given a domain or user email address
    3. API to remove a given user / domain

  4. Restrict Collaboration for Individual External User

    Customer would like to have the ability to block individual external users from collaborating on their enterprise content. The external domain allow list is too broad if only one or two external users need to be blocked from collaborating on content.

  5. The ability to send a file to a specified user without requesting receiver to create Box account

    We are looking for a way to share a file without requesting external receiver to create Box account. Shared Link with "anyone can access" is too open and risky so we need to specify the receiver by email etc. Dropbox provides this by Dropbox Transfer.

  7. Intermediate collaborator permission level between "Editor" and "Viewer/Uploader"

    "Viewer/Uploader" is the second state in the series of current box collaborator permission levels for general users. However its operable range is very limited comparing to "Editor".

    It would be more convenient for users to have another subdivided level or two, such as "Semi-Editor" which is possible to operate files but unable to change levels.

  8. automatically disable link expiry

    I never want my shared links to expire. I wish there was a way for me to set a link expiry preference on my account since I have to follow this process for every boxnote.


    1. create a boxnote.

    2. navigate to the folder it is in.

    3. create shared link.

    4. go to link settings.

    5. disable link expiry.

    I wish I could instead just create a box note, click share and be done with it knowing my link won't expire.

  10. Upgrade from reCAPTCHA v2 to reCAPTCHA v3

    The pictures shown in reCAPTCHA v2 like traffic lights and crosswalks are vague, leading many users to fail to log in.
    As a result they would like Box to use reCAPTCHA v3 instead.

  12. 2FA when logging in using external password

    When SSO is enabled, users can use external passwords to access services that do not support SSO login. Security teams want to be able to enforce 2FA on logins using external passwords.

  13. Shared link permissions enterprise default

    A way to force reset everyone to the enterprise default for shared link permission level.
    +
    A setting that would allow only a subset of users to have the broader level of sharing – say there is opt 1 – people in company / opt 2 people in company + invited / opt 3 people in company + invited + anyone with the link

    Ex. So the enterprise default for all users would be locked down to a max of option 2 (giving users opt 1 & 2 as choices) – we could allow a small subset option 3 (giving…

  15. Device Trust Whitelisting

    Provide ability to whitelist devices while Device Trust is enabled. We would like to enable Device Trust requiring both Domain and Certificate. But we also have lab hosts that are not domain members or have issued certificates. We would like to be able to allow hosts not meeting the Device Trust settings to login.

  16. Add "Edit" permission to shared link options

    We needs to share a link of many Word documents in Box with a large number of people, problem is we can't make it editable to the people who have the link. (only view and download or View only)

    would be awesome to have this option !

  17. So we used a password on a shared link that contains a greater than symbol and the link does not work

    If you create a shared link with a password that contains a greater than symbol > it will not work.
    Such as:
    T^>&4zjbFzV

    At the very least they should make it so that when you try to save a password with that symbol it throws an error right there on the form.

    Thanks

  18. Sign in with Google Across the Platform

    Sign in options are inconsistent across the Box platform. If SAML/SSO or Sign in with Google is set up with an account, it should always be accessible in any place any user attempts to authenticate. I had an account without a password created via the Sign in with Google process and this meant there was one less password floating out there for account access. In order to sign in in certain parts of box.com or in Box Drive, I am required to set a password.

  19. Additional permission options for files

    Hello:

    The documentation for Collaborator Permission Levels at https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044196413-Understanding-Collaborator-Permission-Levels is very substantially incorrect. At the start of that article it says (capitalization mine):

    "When inviting a person as a collaborator within a folder OR FILE, or sending a shared link, you have the ability to set the level of access that person has to your content. Refer to the following chart to review the different permissions that accompany each permission level:"

    This is completely incorrect--the permissions in that article only refer to permissions for folders, not files. Files only get "Viewer" or "Editor" permissions.

    Ideally it would be nice if…
