  1. 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。

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. Auto Refresh open files

    Need the ability to have file opened via a Box Web folder auto refresh when changes are made to the file from other locations.
    We display a scheduling form on large overhead monitor and need the file to auto refresh So display is updated.

  14. 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,…

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. [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.

  19. 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).

  20. Protect and unprotect excel file in Box

    Please add a feature or similar to protect & unprotect an excel file (shared file) in Box so we don't have to download the original file and upload a new version.
