  1. Make available an email address that consists of only numbers

    In our file request settings, the "Email address" is set as mandatory.
    Users whose email address consists of only numbers will be marked "Invalid email address" and will not be able to upload.
    In the current specification, users of companies that use email addresses consisting of only numbers cannot upload.

    Make sure that an email address consisting of only numbers is recognized as a valid email address.

    ファイルリクエストの設定にて「メールアドレス」入力を必須にしています。
    メールアドレスが数字のみで構成されているユーザーは「無効なメールアドレス」と表示され、アップロードできません。
    現在の仕様では、数字のみで構成されたメールアドレスを利用している企業のユーザーはアップロードが行えません。

    数字のみで構成されたメールアドレスが有効なメールアドレスとして認識されるようにしてください。

  2. We want the ability to display a list of tags.

    I'd like to see this kind of feature because it makes it easier to check tags by displaying them in a list.

  3. We want the ability to add tags in batches.

    Adding tags individually can be time-consuming, so I would like to see the ability to add tags in batches.

  4. Default sort by date to descending (most recent first)

    The default sort order is Alphabetical by folder name. When I sort by Updated date, it defaults to ascending -- oldest items first. I'm most often looking for something in a folder that was updated very recently; I would prefer that the default for sorting by Updated date be descending -- newest items first.

  5. Enhance feedback when a user unlocks a file locked by another user

    There is no warning given if a user unlocks a file which has been locked by another user.

    Currently we have users who are locking files, while they edit content in desktop Office apps, but other users are unlocking as they also have to make urgent changes. This is causing a conflict of edits and loss of changes.

    If a user, other then the person that locked a file, unlocks a file then there should be a warning message displayed that asks for confirmation before the unlock is implemented.

  6. Where'd the rollover filenames on web go?

    Am I crazy or did I used to be able to see the full file name when I rolled over and held the cursor over a file link? I no longer see tool tips of the whole filename.

    Long filenames get truncated visually unless your web browser is wide enough to show them. The only way to see the full filename now is to click the rename pencil and view it there.

    This is really inconvenient. Can we have our tooltip filenames back, please???

  7. file upload api

    Please remove the "/" after 'content' in the "File Upload" API URL from the official documentation. When triggered from Postman, the current API generates HTTP Error 400.

  8. Ability to view Box folders and files more clearly

    Currently, when we look at a list of folders or files, we feel that they are displayed in a cluttered way.
    This makes it difficult to find a particular item.
    We manage and respond to items by grouping them by tags.

    We believe that the following features will make Box even more convenient for us to use in the future

    ・Assign any colour to the folders in the box
    ・Assign any colour to the tags in the Box
    ・The order of the tags in the Box can be rearranged by dragging.

    [Boxのフォルダやファイルを更に見やすくする機能]

    フォルダやファイルを一覧で見た際に、雑多に表示されており、特定のアイテムを見つけるのが難しい。
    現在は、タグによってグループ分けを行うことで対応している。

    今後以下の機能が増えることでより便利にBoxを利用できると考えています。

    ・Boxのフォルダに任意の色を付けられるようにして欲しい。
    ・Boxのタグに任意の色を付けられるようにして欲しい。
    ・Boxのタグの順番をドラッグで並び替えられるようにして欲しい。

  9. Easy way for co-owners to see the deletion operations of collaborators in a co-owned folder.

    Currently, only the owner of the item and the user who deleted the item can see the deleted item from the Recycle Bin.
    Users with co-owner rights will not be able to see/restore deleted items in folders that they co-own.
    Co-owners are not authorised to output reports.

    In some cases, tenants who are managed by closed folders ask co-owners to manage the folders.
    One of the key roles of the co-owners is likely to be to ensure that necessary items are not deleted by the collaborator.
    We want an easy way for co-owners to see the deletion operations of collaborators…

  10. Awful UI problem when adding collaborators

    Please fix this awful UI problem: I tried to invite collaborators to a folder, and send a message. I hoped to include my contact info so it would show up in the email. Apparently any sort of URL is not supported in this message box. Ok, fine. But instead of giving me an error message and allowing me to save the last 15 minutes I spent compiling the list of collaborators and writing the message, the box disappeared and AFTERWARDS I got a red message box stating that URLs are not supported in this message box. I lost a lot…

  12. Bulk Move Items that are not Updated for a Certain Period of Time

    We would like to request for a function that automatically moves items which the last updated date is earlier than a certain period.

    For example, if there are items that includes personal data, and those items are not updated for a long time, Box automatically moves those items to a different folder, where access is limited to admins only.

  13. Passwords on File Request links

  14. Update "Not Part of Company" Text to Look Like a Button

    When you share a folder or document with a client who is not a part of your organization they receive an email, they then create a login, they are then sent to a page that says "Company uses your network username and password to login to Box. Continue to login to Box through your network." There is then a Continue button and then text that read "Not part of Company" All 66 of my clients have clicked on the button and not on the text because the text does not look click-able. It would be fantastic if that text could…

  15. Add an optional custom message when locking the file

    When you lock a file in Box, it would good to add your own message when locking the file as to why you have locked the file. By providing this, you can inform others who go to unlock the file why you have the file locked in the first place and either

    a) discourage them from racing through the confirmation dialog and unlocking the file
    b) provide additional context to them as to how much longer you will be with the file

    The message is optional so if you don't want to add additional comments, you can still lock the…

  16. Custom Support information (including displayed text)

    Currently, when you edit support information in the Admin Console (phone number, email, support URL), this is displayed in the "Get Help" section but it is, in my opinion, too rigid. For example, the Support Site URL is displayed as "Help center" in the callout and this cannot be changed to match the language we use internally.

    It would be great to customize this "Get Help" callout to customize existing items as well as add additional items to help point users to the correct resources e.g.


    • Add an item called "Raise a ticket" so users can click a link to…

  17. add an option to set a password when locking a file

    functionality that allows users an option of setting a password when locking a file to stop other users editing would be very useful in our business.
    ideally users would be able to set a time limit and select actions that can/cannot be performed when a file is password locked.
    eg: file cannot be edited/downloaded/copied/deleted/etc..
    option for password protection to be overwritten by system admin would be an essential.

  19. Rename our favourites

    Rename Favourites
    It would be useful if we could rename the way we can see our Favorites.
    For example, we want to add in our favourites a folder named "Project XXXXXX, Area YYYYYY, Section ZZZZZ". But we are only working on this project, so we know this is for project XXXXXX, and we would like only to see "Section ZZZZZZ" in the left panel.
    Another example: we want to favourite a document named "Tracker XXXXX" - but we have a lot of favourite trackers with very similar names and we would like to add a nuance (for example: Project ZZZZZZZ,…

  20. Notification when someone is editing a file

    Since we don't have an option to check-in/check-out of files, can you add a feature like Dropbox's badge which alerts a user when someone else is editing a file so we prevent any simultaneous version history/editing issues?

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re actively researching in this area right now, so I’d love to collect any additional feedback you might have on use cases. For example: are you primarily looking for this notification on Preview? The files list? And in which applications – Web? Box Drive? Box mobile applications?

    Any additional information you provide will be much appreciated.
