  1. I want to be allowed to define a property such as shared-links-target-policy where I will be able to control where a shared link opens

    As the publisher of box shared links I want to be able to define the target-opening policy as for example one of the following "browser", "app", "client" in which 3rd option that choice would be defaulted to "browser" having the end app user change this during installation of app. Also when a url gets intercepted by the box app I believe 99% of the users don't realise that it is the app that asks for login to show content and they complaint to the publisher of the link saying that they don't have anonymous access to the shares as the…

  2. Ability for administrator to set "Legacy Invite Expiration"

    We want the administrator to be able to set "Legacy Invite Expiration" .

    Legacy Invite Expiration cancels outstanding invites to join a Box enterprise that have not been accepted after one year,
    but one year is a long time and raises concerns about security.
    Therefore, we would like to be able to select the timing of expiration, such as 1 month, 3 months, or 6 months.
    cf. https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/4408190692371-Legacy-Invite-Expiration

    【和訳】
    「古い招待の有効期限切れ」の期限を選択できるようにしてほしい

    「古い招待の有効期限切れ」機能では、1年経過した後も承諾されなかった未処理の招待をキャンセルできるようになりましたが、
    1年という期間は長く、セキュリティ面に懸念があります。
    よって有効期限切れのタイミングを1か月、3か月、6か月、のように選択できるようにしてほしいです。

  3. Generate Shared Links as a Relay Outcome

    Would like the ability to automate generating shared links on files within Box Relay as an outcome. One use case for this would be to create a process for generating external shared links. Many security-conscience customers don't want everyone to have the ability to shared content externally without some sort of approval or oversight. If we added generating and sharing shared links as an outcome in Relay we could build approval flows that would allow users to get approval to share a file externally even if they don't have the access do so.

  4. Continue to see the folder that a user is invited to after accepting invitation, though they may have access to the parent folder.

    If you have access rights to a folder higher than the invited folder, when you click "Accept invitation", the invited folder should be displayed.
    /招待されたフォルダより上位フォルダにアクセス権を持っていた場合に、招待を承認をクリックした際、招待されたフォルダが表示されるようにして欲しい

    When you click Accept Invitation in the email sent to you when you collaborate, the invited folder will normally be displayed in your browser.
    However, if you already have access to the top folder of the invited folder, the top folder will be displayed when you click accept invitation.
    Since the behavior is different between the newly invited folder and the one with access rights to the top folder,
    can we make it so that…

  6. File request custom theme image upload from Box

    The File Request theme only allows content to be selected from a local machine. The add image should support the ability to choose content directly from Box.

  9. Ability to turn off optional message field on shared link email and add collaborator dialogs

    Many customers in regulated industries do NOT like the fact that some email notifications from Box have the ability to enter an optional message that will be included as part of the notification. Because this email bypass the customer email gateway they don't have visibility into what that message is. This feature is a compliance issue and should have the ability to turn it off.

    The Box Compliance Email Archive is not sufficient for some customers and that is why one way to solve this would be disabling the feature.

  11. Increase size of left-side menu on Home screen

    The left-side menu on the Home screen is too narrow and cuts off the names of folders/files saved under My Collections/Favorites.

    Users should be able to set whatever width is needed for the menu.

  12. Request to add the file type "yml" for yaml file to preview

    Currently, BOX preview supports the file type "yaml", but file type "yml" is not supported. The 3 characters file extension (it is same as file type) is general especially Windows environment, so I want to support the "yml" file on preview.

  15. Set default branding experience for File Request Links

    In an effort to become "Enterprise Grade" and set certain UI preferences as the default, it would be nice if there was a way to have the enterprise UI settings (logo, color, etc) set as the default user experience when creating a new File Request link rather than having to set that manually. This would also help with consistency across the user created links when making them for external facing entities, reducing confusion for third parties.

  17. 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…

  18. Enhancement to Search (contains instead of exact match)

    Currently, when searching for potential collaborators in Share, Box requires you enter in the exact string to search for a user. Users with middle names, unique characters, will not pop up as suggested in Search unless these middle names or unique characters are typed in exactly as written for a user's account.

    If we could search for potential collaborators without having to give the exact string, it would be easier and take less time to find potential collaborators in a large enterprise.

  19. Shared links still show Box's specific branding even after custom branding

    We are a business user of Box. A critical feature for us is file previewing using Shared and Preview links. Even though we have used custom branding in Admin console -> Enterprise Settings, still the shared links show Box's specific branding e.g. Signin, Signup, blue color header bar prompting for signup, etc. This is a problem when we want to share docs to our customers using shared links.

  20. 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.
