  1. Enhancement to the UI when the user violates the limit on the number of items in the trash can that can be confirmed on the screen.

    I want to improve the behavior when the user violates the limit on the number of items in the trash can that can be confirmed on the screen.

    I want you to display up to the latest ○ items instead of displaying the contents at all.
    If it is difficult to realize this request, please display the screen of the reason why it is not displayed and the workaround screen instead of the error screen of "The specified page does not exist" to reduce the business impact.

    If it disappears suddenly, you will not be able to restore or confirm…

  2. Comments with Links

    It would be ideal if links to Box content that are pasted into comments would default to open in a new browser tab, not replacing the current view of workflow needed while reading other comments.

  3. Add a home to the web UI

    Add Home to the menu in the Web UI above All Files and allow it to be the default we a user first logs in. It should be associated with what they set their home page to be (i.e. Favorites, Collections, etc.). When using a closed folder structure where users can't create files and folders on the All Files page it makes no sense to take them to this page by default because natural thought would be that they should be able to create on this page not need to navigate to another page.

  4. Bulk converting files to most-recent latest version

    Recently for some unknown reason, many of my files content were lost (size showed 0 bytes and could not be opened).

    I had to revert those files back to most recent previous version MANUALLY, 1 BY 1 to recover my files (there were 200+ files affected). Please consider allowing bulk version revert.

    Also, will be great to be able to search files with potential errors (e.g. 0 Bytes), so I don't have to manually locate them.

    Thanks

  5. File counts do not refresh often enough for our needs

    The file counts within the webapp do not update regularly enough.

    We need to be able to see if there are files in folders and if so, how many, without having to look inside each folder.

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to customize the display of the root folder of [Box for Salesforce]

    About the display of the root folder of [Box for Salesforce]

    I would like to prevent the root folder of [Box for Salesforce] from being shown when I log in to [Box Web].
    The reason is that I want to refer to documents attached in [Salesforce] only in the [Salesforce] screen.
    When logging in to [Box Web], we would like to tighten the access control of documents by making it impossible to operate the target documents from [Box Web].

  9. Ability to restore/delete files only by Box tenant administrators

    【Background】
    Due to the revision of the Personal Information Protection Law, the company's policy will be changed.
    The policy will be to erase unnecessary data after a specific period of time.
    This policy change will also cover data residing in personal Bin.

    Currently, as a specification of Box, if an item in the Bin is maliciously "deleted from the Bin" or if data is automatically deleted from the Bin after a certain period of time, it will be unrecoverable after 14 days.
    We would like to set up a specification like "Archive function of the Bin" so that we can…

  10. Have Google Docs/Sheets/Slides be a choice for new content instead of MS Docs/Excel/PPT

    When you're in the folder view, at the top of the screen, Box presents the ability to click in to create a new Word Document or Excel Spreadsheet. We use G-Suite and it would be great to have Google's documents listed here.

  11. Ability to print PDF documents without downloading

    In order to make it easier for the end user to print PDFs it'd be nice to have a print option directly in the context menu (both in the document preview and on document list).

    As PDFs tend to contain forms to fill in either interactively or manually it might be consiedered as useful to print them directly from the browser. Currently it's not possible as after user hits 'command + P' there's only 1 blank page to be printed.

    The current user path for printing a PDF is:
    1. Open a PDF in box webapp
    2. download it to…

  12. Not inviting a user on a single file via SFC when the user is already collaborated through group

  13. All owner vs. co-owner distinction in filtered search in web app

    All the distinct of owner vs. co-owner when searching for content that you own. The importance of this is for when an employee needs to leave a project or company, it can be difficult to make sure that all relevant information has been appropriately transferred to the right individuals without putting that burden on the admin or manager after the employee has departed.

  14. Menus are cut off and unusable

    When I select one of the files closest to the top of the list, the menu options for "open with" and sometimes "download" are cut off. No matter how I resize my screen I can't reach those menu items. This is an issue across multiple computers, usually using Chrome.

  15. 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…

  16. Ability to change the destination of Microsoft Teams Chat Files to any other Box folder

    We would like to be able to change the destination of Microsoft Teams Chat Files to any folder.
    Currently, it is not possible to change the destination of the Box to a different folder.

    Microsoft Teams Chat Filesの保存先を任意のフォルダに変更できるようにしてほしい。

  17. Forcing a page refresh when access is revoked

    Currently within the webapp, if someone created a public link and scope of the link access changes from "People with the link" to either of the more restrictive options, the user can still view contents of the page despite getting an updated floating notification that says "Sorry, you no longer have access to this note."

  18. Inactive Status - Should have visual indicator that shows the account is inactive when user is still a collaborator on folder/file

    When I change a user to inactive in the admin console, The user is still a collaborator on a folder or file. There is no way for the active folder collaborators to know if people are active or inactive. The inactive user should either appear greyed out in the list of users or have an red x or something to indicate this user is no longer active. You would become aware if you try to send a comment or at mention to the inactive user it will not pop up but that still doesnt emphasis that person is no longer…

  19. Provide the ability to have multiple brands under Box

    We are a financing company that has a section of our business that operates under "Private Label Branding." This means we are the financing arm "acting" under the brand of our partners. Currently, how box operates provides a unique problem for us. If we want to utilize file sharing with the Private Label End-users, our actual company logo and information is what is seen while having them engage in either typical file sharing/collaboration, and while using the File Request link.

    It would be great to have the ability use the colors, logos, etc of our Private Label customers while still…
