  1. Show Exact Timestamp for Comments (Instead of 'X Months Ago')

    Make new Web App comment timestamps exact, just like they were in Legacy.

    We’ve updated the timestamps shown in the Activity sidebar of Amsterdam for Comments and Tasks such that they now show a more logical mix of exact and relative dates. Additionally, you can always hover over a timestamp to see a tooltip with the full day/date/time for any entry.

  2. Enterprise level option to default collaborator permission to either Viewer or Editor

    We would like to default all collaborators to Viewer vs the standard/OOTB Editor role

  3. Visual Indicator on Folders with External Collaborators

    Currently, when a folder has external collaborators in it, we show a small globe icon for that collaborator in the Collaborators list (sidebar + full collabs page), but no other visual indicator at the folder level.Often, users want to quickly know "is this folder shared with anyone external/outside my company?" without having to manually comb through the full list of collaborators.REQUEST: Add a visual indicator (either folder color, icon, 'tag'/label, etc.) at the folder level (visible from within the folder and possibly from the files list as a badge) to indicate when a folder has external collaborators in it.

  4. Show Current Folder Location (Instead of Top of 'All Files') as Default in the 'Move / Copy' Modal

    In the former Web App UI, the Move / Copy pop-up (modal) always started off in the current location within the user's folder tree. In the new UI, this behavior was changed to always start the Move / Copy modal off at the top of the user's All Files list - no longer auto-navigating to the current location where the Move / Copy is originating from. REQUEST: Revert this change as it is now relatively challenging to move an item between subfolders in a given folder tree.

    The ‘Account ID’ field has been re-added to the new Web App Account Settings.

  7. Access Stats: Ability to 'export' on a per-file basis

    Provide an 'export' button in the Access Stats modal (pop-up), allowing folder Editors, Co-Owners, and Owners to export a .xlsx file containing all preview/download entries for the file (not limited to the 50 most recent).

  8. Auto-Hide Password Field on Login Page ('Smart SSO')

    The Box standard (non-custom branded) login page (account.box.com) does not automatically remove the password field if the email entered is in an EID with SSO Required. This means that users are often presented a password field that they don't even need to fill in, and they often have never even created a Box password, so they end up putting their SSO password into the field, then just have to enter it again when redirected to their SSO / IdP login page.

  9. 'Email Shared Link' - Allow Searches to Include Spaces

    The 'email shared link' feature (in the Shared Link pop-up) does not allow the user to enter a space when typing in the name/email field, meaning a user cannot type someone's first and last name to narrow down to exactly who they want.

    We are planning to add the folder filter back to the search results page. We don’t plan on adding it to the quicksearch dropdown.

  11. New Box UI: Ask users for confirmation before trashing a file/folder

    In the old UI, users were prompted confirm if it was OK to trash a file. In the new UI, the file is trashed immediately

  12. Email Notifications: Customize Subject Line (Shared Link & Collaboration Invitation Emails)

    "Users find the "Item shared with you" and "invited to a folder" subject lines too generic and can be ignored".

    Thanks for the suggestion! We recently updated the subject line of our primary sharing-related email notifications to make them easier to read and more action-oriented. We hope you enjoy!

  13. 'Not available' error message when accessing a link needs to be more specific.

    Please fix the ambiguous 'Not available' and 'Unable to Download File on Box EMM' error messages when users attempt to click on links sent to them that they don't have access to.

    Instead of users being sent shared links, they are being sent URL's for files/folders that only the sender has access to (as designed). They are asking for the error message to be more specific, and to say something like the following:
    "The requested page does not exist, or you do not have permission to view it, or this is not a Box Shared Link. Please check the URL…

  14. Keywordless Search

    Ability to do a search without entering a string of text parameters. In order to fully make use of Box's metadata features (including templates), Box needs to support keywordless search.

    This was released as part of the external access indicators release! We’ve included an icon in the details sidebar to indicate external sharing status.

    We believe we have addressed this request with the Upload URL release. If we haven’t, let us know!

  18. Embed - Custom Branding Should Be Respected

    Currently, an EID's custom branding settings (colors, logos, help URLs, etc.) are not respected/funneled through to the Embed UI. Essentially, the Embed UI is a totally separate UI currently and customers would prefer that it's just a smaller (responsive) window into the full webapp, respecting all custom branding, etc.Customers would like Embed to...1. Respect custom branding coloring2. Respect the 'help' link that's set in the custom branding tab of the admin console

    I believe is will be solved by the Global Recents feature. Let us know if you have additional requests!

  20. See email along with name when inviting collaborators

    This helps with identifying people with different names.
