  1. Re-Add Owner / Co-Owner Labels to the File List in Amsterdam

    The Legacy UI had Owner and Co-Owner 'labels' that were shown in the file list next to the folder name. This made it easy for end users and admins (using Instant Log-In from the Admin Console) to see - at a glance without having to select individual folders - which folders a given end user either owned or was co-owner of.

    These labels were removed from the new UI, making it much harder to identify owned folders (as both owned and not-owned collaborated folders are blue).

    REQUEST: Re-add the 'Owner' and 'Co-Owner' labels to the file list in the new…

    Interesting feature request! However, we’re not able to prioritize it at this time due to competing priorities.

    Thanks for your feedback. We’re currently working on improving some of the existing product notification emails in the short and medium term. We will take your feedback into account as we review our overall notification strategy.

  5. Automatic warning when generating "people with link" shared link

    Generating a shared link with "people with link" settings is very easy for end users, to the point where they might not realize the degree to which they open that content up to hard-to-mitigate, external distribution. An automatic warning, when an end user selects" people with link," is required per company security policy.

    We understand the concern and believe the proper way to implement this is to either allow the admins to default shared links to “people in my company” and/or when a user selects “people with link” and admin can select a setting to pop up a warning message. We wouldn’t want to implement this by default to all customers since this is adding friction to sharing which will have a negative effect on that action.

  6. Add "editor" and/or "viewer" permissions in the dropdown menu using the Attach From Box feature.

    Currently when you Attach From Box, we are only able to select WHO we want to share the link with - People in your company or People in the folder. The option of WHO we want to give permission to, could stay, but it would be really nice if another drop down menu could be added in that same window, allowing the user to designate what type of permissions you want to give the employee receiving the link. Editor or Viewer

  8. Adding a collaborator for more than one folder at once

    Somebody wants to share several folder with the same person/group at the same time. Right now every folder has to be selected and the collaborator has to be added every time.

  9. Remove highlighting in snippets from search results that aren't indexed (e.g. Boolean operators)

    Currently if you search with a Boolean operator (e.g. AND, OR, NOT), our search does not index those words. However, we still highlight those terms if they appear in the snippets, leading to confusion over whether the search is indexing them or not.

  13. Include total number of actions per batch email notification in subject line

    Currently, the email subject line for batch emails is along the lines of "Items were moved to [folder]". Within the email, it will surface some specific examples, but at a certain number of items, the bottom has a small gray text link that says "[number] additional items. Click View All to view."

    It would be helpful for users who rely on these notifications as part of their workflow to be able to easily see how many actions are accounted for in each batch notification, perhaps in the subject line or elsewhere.

  16. Add messaging to password reset confirmation page re: no existing account

    If users can't remember whether they have an account or can't remember their password, sometimes they try the reset password. Currently, entering any text with an "@" in the middle will give the same confirmation page that an email has been sent. The current default messaging advises those who haven't received the email to 1) check their spam or 2) try a different email. I would suggest adding additional messaging around the possibility of there never being an account in the first place. e.g. "If an account was found, an email has been sent" or "Another reason why you may…

  18. I would like to double click to open.

    When you want to open a file in Box you always have to do 2 steps.
    Open the file in the webapp, and the "open in"
    Or, via the ... menu and then "open in"

    Can you make a doubleclick function like users know from the OS ?
