  2. Add 'type' in column sidebar features.

    Currently the features at the column sidebar only can sort by 'Name', 'Updated' and 'Size' only. 
    It would be nice if the column sidebar from box layout features can be add another item on it, Which is I'm looking for 'Type' of folder/file to be add. 
    This will make the layout neater and more organized because the colors of files and folders in the waeb app makes them cluttered which makes the layout seem not regulated efficiently, and it will also make it easier to search for files and folders especially in large quantities of files in one folder. Looking…

  3. 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。

  4. 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 actually can be viewed by "People in your company" AND by "Invited people" there as well.
    Some end users missed out the fact that those "invited people" would also be viewing it with the generated link.

    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、実は「会社のユーザー」だけでなく「招待されたユーザー」も閲覧可能です。
    エンドユーザーによっては、この「招待されたユーザー」も生成された共有リンクで閲覧可能であることを見逃すことがあります。

    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。

  5. Show only files that are not in the "Collections".

    There are so many files on "All files". In such a situation, it is very useful to be able to show only the files that are not in the "Collection".

  6. Export menu of the Access Statistics for non-administrators

    【Request】
    I would like you to make the access statistics export menu available to non-administrative users.
    I think this can be achieved by allowing the user to select the destination folder after clicking the export menu.

    【Current status and issues】
    Currently, only co-administrators or administrators who have the authority to output reports can export access statistics.
    General users other than administrators can check the access statistics, but cannot export them to a file.

    The PR department has voiced the desire to export access statistics to a file.
    However, we do not want to give them co-administrator privileges because of the…

  7. Passwords on File Request links

    I would like to be able to add a password on public file request links to protect these file request pages (like how I add passwords on public shared links)

  8. About the scope of expiration notice to co-owners.

    Currently the expiration of the invited user to a folder is notified to the owner and co-owner of the folder,
    however, any co-owner cannot receive the expiration of the invitee of its child folder while owner receives all the expiration notification.

    We would like to request to cascade the scope of co-owner's privilege to its child folders so that the co-owner of the parent folder can receive all the expiration notification of the descendant folders.

  9. Make collections have the ability to playlist sequence a song list. The web client is missing any ability to playlist songs.

    On the web app, we're missing any way to playlist and sequence a song list. The iphone app does this automatically with folders, but we need this feature on the web app! The collections would be the perfect place to be able to do this!

  10. 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.

  11. Cursor leaves folder name field after creating new folder

    I've found two bugs in the we-based box app. These have both been happening for a while now... several months at least.

    First, when you create a new folder, you can no longer just start typing the name, as the cursor leaves the Folder Name field upon creation of a new folder. Having to click back in the field is a bit of a pain.

    Second, often when I'm uploading something - particularly if it's hundreds of megabytes, or part of a larger upload, after finishing the list of uploads, it will begin uploading the list again. I've uploaded a…

  12. When restoring a version, keep the original Modified Date

    When restoring a version, keep the original Modified Date. Creating a new modified date implies that the file was modified when it was not. Versions should be restored to previous state.

  13. Sort or filter files in a folder by the presence or absence of comments.

    Sort or filter files in a folder by the absence or presence of comments. Feature would be helpful to spot files that should have been reviewed and weren't.

  14. Add the ability to abort operations such as moving, deleting, and restoring from the Trash Box that involve large amounts of content.

    Add the ability to abort operations such as moving, deleting, and restoring from the Trash Box that involve large amounts of content.

    Box does not have a function to abort operations such as moving or deleting folders or files containing a large amount of content, or restoring from the Trash Box. By adding this function, users can abort the operations they have done by mistake.

  15. 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.

  16. The "Other Options" menu is missing

    The menu display of "Other Options" is cut off.
    I want the menu display to be always displayed in its entirety.

    When files and folders are at the top of the screen, "Other Options" may not be displayed at all.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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???

  20. 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.
