  1. Selective Bulk Trash Restoration

    Enable the ability to further filter trash folders by folder path and date deleted and perform a bulk operation to restore affected files. Alternatively allow a view to see a full list of all deleted items, rather than the smaller pages.

    The current bulk method is to restore all deleted items in trash. In organizations where the trash retention is set to never auto-delete, trashed files are maintained indefinitely which can create a very large trash folder for users. We do not want to restore files and folders for all time, just a select period.

    Example:
    Files below a specific…

  2. Ability to Sort comment order by page

    When using Adobe Document Cloud, it keeps comments grouped on the same page versus oldest to newest. It's useful when reviewing one page at a time. Can we get a sort filter system that allows: by page, oldest, newest, commenter?

  4. Ability to change the initials format in Box

    Initials are heavily used in Box and I want the ability to change the format of how these are displayed as currently the only option is first letter of first name and surname (Joe Doe becomes JD), for companies that use non-standard email addresses, initials are different.

  5. Hide "editable" so it's not accidentally selected

    A feature that allows editing from a shared link has been released.
    At the time of release, the settings are released as "View and Download and Editable" according to the Box Note settings.
    After the release, the setting was changed to "View and Download Available" in the tenant settings.
    Editable" is now displayed when attempting to configure shared links in a tenant environment after settings have been made.

    We would like it to take over the settings when they are not editable and hide the "editable" setting so that it is not accidentally selected.

    (In Japanese)

  6. Save Sorting Preferences

    When using Box in-browser, create a setting to change the default sorting preference. For example, so you can make the default sorting for all folders Name, Ascending. This is not currently an option and means every time you open a folder you need to manually resort it, as the default sorting is always set to Updated, Ascending.

  7. Disable version history deletion for the entire tenant

    To comply with Japan's Electronic Bookkeeping Law, transaction documents are stored in Box, but there is always a risk that the files may be modificated with or deleted.

    File deletion and modification can be restricted by retention policies, etc., in addition to folder level of access.
    Deletion of version history can also be restricted by folder access permissions.
    However, users who have been granted editor or higher privileges can delete version history, and there is no other way to control this.

    Request the ability to control the deletion of version history in tenant settings.

    (Japanese)
    テナント全体でバージョン履歴の削除を無効にする

    日本の電子帳簿保存法遵守の為、取引関係の書類をBoxに保存しているため、ファイルの変更、削除されてしまうリスクが常に潜んでいます。
    ファイルの削除、変更の制限は、フォルダのアクセス権限以外にリテンションポリシー等で制限をすることができます。

    バージョン履歴の削除もフォルダのアクセス権限で制限できます。
    しかし、編集者以上の権限が付与されているユーザーはバージョン履歴が削除できてしまい、他に制御する方法がありません。

  8. Accurate display of number of files

    Fixed the problem of inconsistent number of files

    Inconsistencies in the number of files can occur when large amounts of data are owned or moved for business purposes.
    There is a workaround for this in the support page, but it does not work in some cases.
    Even if we can confirm the exact number of items in the report, the size may differ due to data inconsistencies.
    We feel that it is inconvenient for business use to not be able to accurately grasp the number of data.
    Please fix the inconsistency of the number of files.

  9. About the Delete All Button in the Recycle Bin.

    About the Delete All Button in the Recycle Bin.

    When pressing the Delete All button in the Recycle Bin, the deletion process fails and an error occurs.

    It was an answer to the problem that occurred in the following procedure from Box Support (ticket number: 2694308),

    1. Among the folders in the parent-child relationship, the child folder is deleted first.
    2. Delete parent folder after.
    3. Folders of parent-child relationship are displayed separately in the trash box as different folders.
    4. In this state, if [Delete All] is pressed, an error occurs.

    The Delete All button is not available until you delete the parent-child…

  10. Disable expiration period change for public shared links only

    Currently it is possible to set up automatic expiration period for public shared links in Admin Console, which is an important security feature. However, users can extend the expiration period in Shared Link Settings. It would be more secure to disable expiration period extension for public shared links by users, while allowing them to change expiration periods for other types of shared links (company or collaborators only)

  11. Ability to rearrange the image files displayed on Box Drive and Box Web

    For image files (photos), such as jpg and png files, there is a Date taken item in the "Properties".
    On Box Drive and Box Web, We wants to organize the photos by descending or ascending order based on the Date taken.
    However, since [Box Drive] and [Box Web] do not have the Date taken attribute, files cannot be organized by the date and time they were taken.
    Thus, we would like you to add the Date taken attribute.

  12. Improve messaging when moving folders between owners

    Currently in the web app, a co-owner of a folder is able to move that folder to another location with different ownership. It makes sense that this is allowed and I don't want that to change. However, when the user does this action, they are presented first with an error dialog that suggests the action failed. If they click the "Details" button, they then see a confirmation dialog that ultimately lets them complete the operation.

    I think a confirmation dialog is appropriate, but it should be presented to the user immediately and not hidden behind the initial error dialog.

  13. share link permission to group

  14. Display actual user name instead of "Previous Collaborators"

    About the owner and last updater of files and folders on BOX. If you delete the owner's account, the owner will be displayed as "Previous Collaborators", but I would like you to leave the owner name without changing to this display. It is necessary to comply with the Japanese local electronic bookkeeping law. Please consider.

    BOX上のファイルやフォルダの所有者、最終更新者についてです。所有者のアカウントを削除すると所有者は「以前のコラボレータ」表示になりますが、この表示に変更せず所有者名を残していただきたいです。日本ローカルな電子帳簿法対応で必要です。ご検討ください。

  15. End collaboration for multiple files

    It would be really useful it we could end collaboration on multiple files at once, rather than having to select each file individually.

  16. Cannot see # of files in current folder (without subfolders)

    In order to get the # of files in a given folder, I have to look at the total files for that folder from the parent directory, and go through each subfolder and subtract from the total. This is a very silly way to do this and seems to be an oversight. Can BOX add this data?

    Same thing applies to folder size as well.

    The "Details" tab should include: Current folder: # of files, Current folder: size, Current folder / subfolders : # of files, Current folder / subfolders: size.

  17. Addition of a function to confirm whether or not to overwrite a file with the same name if it exists in the destination folder when a file w

    When copying a file from another folder in a Box, if the destination folder contains a file with the same name, a message will appear asking if the file should be overwritten.
    The message "There is a file with the same name, do you want to overwrite it? and if the user selects "Yes", the file can be overwritten.

    Currently, the process is: "Add (1) to the end of the copied file"⇒ "Rename the file that already exists" ⇒ "Remove (1) from the end of the copied file".

  19. To default folders to sort files descending not ascending.

    Not sure why the Box program does not offer a default for folders/files to sorted descending not ascending. Who or what application does it benefit for the folders/files to be defaulted to the ascending, other than the constant secondary clicking of a mouse to hit the name sort button.
