  1. drag and drop jpegs

    • You currently do not have the ability to simply drag and drop a JPEG from Box in to PowerPoint (or any other document), which means you either have to open the doc, take a screen shot and copy/paste the screen shot OR use the “insert” function on PowerPoint and them go through your files to find it

  2. Bring back pagination

    Please bring back pagination! I work with thousands of files and continuous scrolling makes it much harder to search for the last file I was working on. Pagination allows me to view a certain number of files on a page which helps so much when working with thousands of files of data.

  3. [ACCESSIBILITY] Enable preview with non-embedded captions

    Currently video player requires subtitles to be embedded in the video file. It would be a great enhancement to adopt the industry standards and enable captions to be in a different file (same filename, different extension) on the same folder. That would simplify the work to be done when publishing a video with captions.

  4. Set certain folders to default to searching only within that folder

    As an example, we have a Knowledgeable folder. When users go to that folder and search, I want to confine search to just that folder by default (most users won't want to tick the box).

  5. Web interface improvements

    Two things:
    1) Within the Box Web App, allow for the creation of a New Folder and other features when you "right-click" within the view area. Google Drive already has this.

    2) After clicking the "New" > "Folder", to create a new folder, a pop-up window appears. Please have the cursor automatically highlight the "Folder Name" field, so that you don't have to click within the text field first to type a name.

    These UI improvements will help with the overall experience. Thanks!

  6. Request about 'People in your company' for shared links

    There is a permission called "People in your company" for shared links.
    When a link is set to "People in your company", it can be viewed by "People in your company" and "Invited people only".
    Some end users think this is confusing.

    Please change the name of the item to "People in your company and Invited people only".

    ご要望:
    共有リンクの「会社のユーザー」という権限があります。
    「会社のユーザー」権限を設定した共有リンクは、「会社のユーザー」と「招待されたユーザー」が閲覧可能です。
    これが紛らわしいというエンドユーザーがいます。

    そのため、項目名を「会社のユーザーと招待されたユーザー」に変更して欲しいです。

  7. progress when move files

    Similar to when Upload files to Box, show a progress bar when Move files within Box. This is particularly helpful when move over a large number of files and folders.

  8. Change default Account Setting for "Files and Folders Per Page" from 20 to 100

    I've been a Box Admin for 10+ years and I've met zero users who prefer to only see 20 items per page. I recommend either changing the default to 100 for everyone or at least allowing Admins to configure that as the default for all users in our Enterprise. When I set up a new users I log in to their account and change this for them as many people dislike the WebApp partly because they have to scroll through so many pages and they aren't aware that they can change this account setting.

  9. lock reservation function

    Currently, we cannot make a reservation to lock the file.
    Customer wants lock reservation function.

    Example : If folder owner select lock date to 1/2, User can edit its file until 1/1. After 1/2, user will be not able to edit it.

    Use case :If this function was implemented, user can create deadline to editing file.

  11. 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.

  12. Improve web site usability

    When I share image folder with someone who does not have account at Box.com - their browsing experience is currently poor: it's not possible to see all photos as previews, changing their size, not possible to use arrows / swipe to navigate between previous and next full-sized picture and so on... Web site usability needs to be greatly improved to match best cloud services on the market.

  13. Box Notes and Collections

    The Box Notes interface, at the moment, only works with Favourites. It'll be great if you could choose a collection to put your Box Note into, directly from the Box Notes interface, as opposed to having to navigate to the Box folder where the note is, then select the collection.

  14. New / Folder Modal Window on Web App - Fields Lose Focus

    I'm a creature of habit and don't like change, so there are plenty of grumblings I could make about the new UI.

    That being said, there's one thing that absolutely gets my goat, and I'm told that this is "expected behavior" in the new web UI.

    When I click the upper right "new" then "folder" and the "lightbox" modal window appears to add information about my new folder, the old UI would focus the cursor in the naming field allowing me to just start typing.

    In the new UI, this window loses focus after a short load of some small…

  15. Improve the UI so that the "Owner" is not displayed when changing the permissions of a sub-folder.

    Improve the UI so that the "Owner" is not displayed when changing the permissions of a sub-folder.

    In subfolders that have inherited access rights from the parent folder cannot change the owner to collaborators other than the co-owner.
    However, after selecting the folder, select the collaborator shown on the right side of the screen and try to change the access permissions, will visible "Owner" in the menu. And if select "Owner" in the menu, nothing works, which is not a good UI as it can cause confusion when changing access rights.
    If change the access permissions in the "Manage Collaborators"…

  16. Locked Files

    It would be REALLY great if there were a way in Box to pull up all of the files you have locked. My team shares tons of excel files all day long. If I forget to unlock a file, no one else knows if they can get in. Half the time I'm not in it but forgot to unlock it. If there were a way to pull up all files at any given time in one place that I've locked where I could unlock them from that screen if I'm no longer in them, it would save us a lot…

  17. Fix slow and unstable sync behavior

    We all use the Web app in my workplace to upload and edit MS Word files. Recently, sometimes uploaded files are not visible to a person on another terminal. They appear about 5 to 10 minutes late which is detrimental in our business which has strict broadcasting deadlines.

    Yesterday my colleague uploaded her file several times but I could not see it in the folder at home. When it finally appeared it was Ver.11! But I had not seen any of the uploaded versions until that point.

    Syncing also seems to be unstable in Box Drive. I completely gave it…

  18. Visible Folder Tree Setting

    Problem: users often have files/folders shared with them by collaborators, and the titles of these folders can be the same - e.g. 3 folders all named "Photos." Without clicking into these folder, you don't have context as to who owns it/where it came from.

    Request: Allow folder owners to decide if they will allow folder tree visibility on their collaborated folders. This would provide context without giving direct access to content they should've have access to.
    e.g. They can add Folder Visible on an upstream folder and they would see the folder but no content until they get to the…

  19. Allow non-admin users to export the access stats for enterprises that enables Restrict Content Creation

    We would like to unlock the limitation mentioned in the below article and allow end users to a report of access stats by themselves.

  20. Update Issues with creating new folder and naming folder.

    With the new updates, when you create a new folder and the window pops up to name it, you have to click into the type box to name the folder. The typing cursor should just automatically be ready for you to type. It used to be this way until the last update. Messing up my workflow...
