  2. Shared links still show Box's specific branding even after custom branding

    We are a business user of Box. A critical feature for us is file previewing using Shared and Preview links. Even though we have used custom branding in Admin console -> Enterprise Settings, still the shared links show Box's specific branding e.g. Signin, Signup, blue color header bar prompting for signup, etc. This is a problem when we want to share docs to our customers using shared links.

  3. File request custom theme transparent logo suggestion tooltip

    When putting themes for file request, using logos with existing color backgrounds does not look as clean. It would be great to add a tooltip suggestion to use a transparent logo for the user designing the theme.

  4. 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…

  5. Provide a separate label that feeds the "Metadata" tab in search UI on creation of a template

    When user clicks on search options in the web app and on the metadata tab on choosing of the template the UI generates a Form to provide the values for the metadata properties. Today the Web App shows the Metadata Properties label defined during the creation of the template. Sometimes these labels do not read well during search. Example: If the label says "Closed Record Date (Required)" when capturing the values in the template it makes sense but when searching the word "(Required)" is feeding wrong message to user. So provide another label when creating metadata templates for each property…

  6. Metadata removal confirmation message verbiage update

    When trying to remove a template from a file or folder, the buttons say "Remove" but the confirmation message says the word "delete".

    "Are you sure you want to delete <Template Name> and all its values from the file?"

    Please change that to "Are you sure you want to remove <Template Name> and its values...

  7. Calendar Widget UI enhancements

    The today date/selected date in calendar widget is not highlighted enough and makes it difficult for users to view. Suggest to add a square box or additional contrast to make it clearer to the user.

  8. When inviting a user with a secondary address, please show them in the collaboration list with the email address (secondary address)

    Currently, when you invite a collaborator with a secondary email address, the primary address is displayed in the collaboration list.
    However, when you invite someone with a secondary email address, I would like to see the secondary address you invited displayed in the collaboration list, instead of the primary address.

    If the address is different from the one you invited, it will be confusing if the inviting party doesn't know the primary address.

    Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

    現在はセカンダリのメールアドレスでコラボレータを招待した時にプライマリアドレスがコラボレーション一覧に表示されます。
    しかし、セカンダリアドレスで招待した際、コラボレーション一覧にプライマリアドレスで表示されるのではなく、招待したセカンダリアドレスを表示してほしいです。

    招待したアドレスと違う場合、招待した側がプライマリアドレスを把握していないと混乱するためです。

  9. 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.

  10. Easier way to create a bookmark in Box from shared link generation

    Bookmark takes too many steps even when saving a Box's shared link. It should be easier to create a bookmark of a shared Link from adoption perspective.

    As-Is: 1. Generate a shared link 2. Copy the link 3. Move to folder where I want to save a bookmark 4. Create Bookmark and paste&name the link

    To-Be: 1. Generate a shared link 2. Prepare a prompt (probably in the shared Link generation popup) and select "Create Bookmark" and user can select folder they would like to save the link in within the same prompt 3. Save the bookmark (without actually moving…

  11. I would like to see BoxWeb implement a function to sort files by extension.

    The current BoxWeb does not allow sorting by file extension.
    However, in some fields, a large number of photos and videos are often taken for measurement and development work, and many types of files are miscellaneously stored in a single folder.

    For example, when searching for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...) For example, if you are looking for image files (.png/.jpg/etc...), you can search for them by file name, but you may also want to check them by file extension.

    We currently use a method of dividing files into categories by file type, such as blocks of image files, blocks of video…

  12. New Web UI and custom logo

    In the old UI, you could use any logo in the top left corner of the screen.

    We've been given the answer that the only place we can set a logo is in the top right corner of the screen with the new UI.
    However, users are used to the logo being in the top left corner and would like to have the option to place it in the top left.

    Thank you for your feedback! In an effort to modernize our application, we have made significant updates to our Web product to ensure that we improve our user experience while retaining custom branding for customers. Given that this feedback is related to user preference, we will continue to monitor if users continue to feel strongly about this. At this time, we do not plan to change this experience.

  13. Please unify the order of folder names in the browser versions of Box and Explorer.

    In Windows Explorer, symbols can be added to folder names to make them appear higher in the list.
    For this reason, symbols are placed at the beginning of the names of frequently accessed folders for smooth access to the folders.

    However, in the browser version of Box, the rules for folder name order are different, causing confusion in operation.
    Please unify the order of names in Explorer and in the browser version of Box.

    Windowsのエクスプローラーでは、フォルダ名に記号を付けて上位に表示させることができます。
    そのため、頻繁にアクセスするフォルダ名の先頭に記号を付けることで、スムーズにアクセスできるようになっています。

    しかし、ブラウザ版のBoxでは、フォルダ名の並び順のルールが異なるため、操作に混乱が生じます。
    エクスプローラーとブラウザ版Boxでの名前の順番を統一してください。

  14. Shared Link Unavailable Prompt

    User believes that current 'shared link has been removed or is unavailable to you' page could be confusing to users that have access but are not logged in, and that the messaging should include a prompt to log in if user believes they have reached the page in error.

  15. 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.

  17. Show full folder path at top

    Too much of the file path is collapsed at the left while there is plenty of space along the top to show more of the path.

  18. Ability to send e-mails from Box Web UI when "Restrict collaboration to within <Enterprise name>" in folder setting are activated

    Following enhancement was made at May 7th, 2021.

    Collaboration Allowlist Enhancement
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500008585062

    Customer are setting collaboration for internal only by folder setting.
    In this state, shared link are used to share files with external users.

    But with the update above, we can no longer send shared links by email from Box Web UI.
    Copying the shared link and sending a separate email is a workaround, but it doesn't get users to understand.
    A growing number of users are confused by the clumsy error messages that appear when sending email, and some mistakenly believe that shared link wasn't created properly.

    We…

  19. Customize default view

    The side bar that shows who the folder/file is shared with always appears and takes up way to much space so I always close it. I wish I didn't have to close it all the time and my preferred view was remembered or I can customize my views in my account
