  1. Show full folder path at top

    Too much of the file path is collapsed at the left while there is plenty of space along the top to show more of the path.

  2. Ability to send e-mails from Box Web UI when "Restrict collaboration to within <Enterprise name>" in folder setting are activated

    Following enhancement was made at May 7th, 2021.

    Collaboration Allowlist Enhancement
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500008585062

    Customer are setting collaboration for internal only by folder setting.
    In this state, shared link are used to share files with external users.

    But with the update above, we can no longer send shared links by email from Box Web UI.
    Copying the shared link and sending a separate email is a workaround, but it doesn't get users to understand.
    A growing number of users are confused by the clumsy error messages that appear when sending email, and some mistakenly believe that shared link wasn't created properly.

    We…

  3. Customize default view

    The side bar that shows who the folder/file is shared with always appears and takes up way to much space so I always close it. I wish I didn't have to close it all the time and my preferred view was remembered or I can customize my views in my account

  5. File request custom theme transparent logo suggestion tooltip

    When putting themes for file request, using logos with existing color backgrounds does not look as clean. It would be great to add a tooltip suggestion to use a transparent logo for the user designing the theme.

  8. Please add a button to switch between 'available', 'Add by Default' and 'Never show' for "the items displayed in this Box web app".

    In the near future (2021 7/15 JST) there will be an update to the user app settings in the Box web app.
    Once this update is in place, applications that are 'available' in the app settings of the management console will appear in the Box preview screen.

    While we are very happy about this, we do not want to confuse end users with this update.

    We would like to see only the applications that are set to "Add by Default" on the screen as now, and not the applications that are "Available".
    Please add a button to switch between 'available',…

  9. Comment Replies and Thumbs Up/Down

    It would be great to give a comment a thumbs up or down and be able to reply directly to someone's comment (ideally showing it indented under the person's comment, not at the bottom of the Activity/comment sidebar). This would help collaboration!

  10. I would like to see BoxWeb implement a function to sort files by extension.

    The current BoxWeb does not allow sorting by file extension.
    However, in some fields, a large number of photos and videos are often taken for measurement and development work, and many types of files are miscellaneously stored in a single folder.

    For example, when searching for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...) For example, if you are looking for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...), you can search for them by file name, but you may also want to check them by file extension.

    We currently use a method of dividing files into categories by file type, such as blocks of image files, blocks of video…

  11. Accessibility - Update 'Not Part of [Organization]?' text on company-specific URL's to indicate that it is a link for screen readers

    We have a company URL, for example organization.box.com; there is a link that reads, "Not a part of [organization]?" Clicking it brings you to the generic Box login page. However, this text is not handled correctly by screen readers. We propose that this should be updated for the benefit of our current and future clients who may rely on a screen reader.

    From our accessibility department: "So when the screen reader gets to that line, it does not indicate that it needs to be clicked "if you are not part of [the organization]." It is vague, and does not guide…

  12. Please unify the order of folder names in the browser versions of Box and Explorer.

    In Windows Explorer, symbols can be added to folder names to make them appear higher in the list.
    For this reason, symbols are placed at the beginning of the names of frequently accessed folders for smooth access to the folders.

    However, in the browser version of Box, the rules for folder name order are different, causing confusion in operation.
    Please unify the order of names in Explorer and in the browser version of Box.

    Windowsのエクスプローラーでは、フォルダ名に記号を付けて上位に表示させることができます。
    そのため、頻繁にアクセスするフォルダ名の先頭に記号を付けることで、スムーズにアクセスできるようになっています。

    しかし、ブラウザ版のBoxでは、フォルダ名の並び順のルールが異なるため、操作に混乱が生じます。
    エクスプローラーとブラウザ版Boxでの名前の順番を統一してください。

  13. Shared Link Unavailable Prompt

    User believes that current 'shared link has been removed or is unavailable to you' page could be confusing to users that have access but are not logged in, and that the messaging should include a prompt to log in if user believes they have reached the page in error.

  14. Improve reliability of email upload

    Improve reliability of email upload

    Email upload can sometimes get delayed. Most of the time upload is completed relatively soon, but sometimes it takes hours to complete. We want this feature to be more reliable and predictable.

  15. Allow bulk actions to be interrupted (such as copy/move/restore/delete)

    When users copy / move / restore / delete a large number of items, we want them to be able to cancel if they notice a mistake along the way.
    Currently, when processing a large number of items in Box, we need to wait until the process is completed even if we notice a mistake.
    When processing large numbers of items, processing may require several days.
    During that time, folders and files are locked.
    Please make it possible to interrupt the process on the way.

  16. To have shared file Information field open to public (non-logged) viewers

    Hello, I would like to suggest that Information field of public file shares are shown without requiring login. I believe that both the class of utility that particular field offers to visiting viewers as well as the practical aspect of having to log-in in order to view that text is not realistic and should be open to public viewers.

  17. Please implement the function to restore the contents in the trash to a folder other than the original folder location.

    Please implement the function to restore the contents in the trash to a folder other than the original folder location.

    Currently, when restoring files/folders from the trash, it will be restored to the same folder as before the deletion.
    If we accidentally delete a large number of items that we plan to move, it will take a considerable amount of time to restore and then move, and the items in the move process (delete / move / copy) will be temporarily locked, which will hinder our business.
    We are confident that if we can select the restore location, which will…

  18. new tab opens for link destination

    It would be nice to be shown link destination in a new tab or window (w/o right clicking function) when clicking on URLs/hyperlinks for comments, search results etc. on Box.
    Jumping to link destinations in the same windows makes me unhappy cause I have to re-open original site each time.

  19. Mentions

    Specify multiple people at once when commenting on a comment.

    You can use @mentions to notify users of files in Box, but I think it is extremely inefficient to have to enter the user name from @ every time.

    However, we think it is extremely inefficient to have to type the username from @ every time.
    For example, it would be very convenient to be able to specify @mentions with a single click or by copying and pasting.

    (和訳)
    Box上のファイルに対し、@メンションでユーザーに通知することが出来ますが、毎回@からユーザー名を一から入力する必要がするのは極端に作業効率が悪いと捉えています。

    例えばメールの返信の様な形でワンクリックで指定出来たり、
    コピー&ペーストで指定できるなど、簡単に@メンションが付けられると非常に便利だと思います。
