  1. Disable version history deletion for the entire tenant

    To comply with Japan's Electronic Bookkeeping Law, transaction documents are stored in Box, but there is always a risk that the files may be modificated with or deleted.

    File deletion and modification can be restricted by retention policies, etc., in addition to folder level of access.
    Deletion of version history can also be restricted by folder access permissions.
    However, users who have been granted editor or higher privileges can delete version history, and there is no other way to control this.

    Request the ability to control the deletion of version history in tenant settings.

    テナント全体でバージョン履歴の削除を無効にする

    日本の電子帳簿保存法遵守の為、取引関係の書類をBoxに保存しているため、ファイルの変更、削除されてしまうリスクが常に潜んでいます。
    ファイルの削除、変更の制限は、フォルダのアクセス権限以外にリテンションポリシー等で制限をすることができます。

    バージョン履歴の削除もフォルダのアクセス権限で制限できます。
    しかし、編集者以上の権限が付与されているユーザーはバージョン履歴が削除できてしまい、他に制御する方法がありません。

  3. Option to Remove "Upgrade Plan" Button

    I'm a business customer with a paid subscription. Please give me an option to remove the "Upgrade Plan" button. It negatively impacts UX and takes up valuable real estate at the top of every page. It also subtly suggests that my current purchase is less valuable/important than a more expensive plan.

  4. Box Web App Clicking on Files

    I've noticed with the recent update to the web ui, that you can no longer click on a file without box wanting to automatically wanting to open the file. In the past, you had options like download, delete, move, etc... Can an option be added to the admin center to re-enable this option for users? Thanks.

  5. Ability to change the initials format in Box

    Initials are heavily used in Box and I want the ability to change the format of how these are displayed as currently the only option is first letter of first name and surname (Joe Doe becomes JD), for companies that use non-standard email addresses, initials are different.

  6. Editable shared link to take precendence over collaborator permission

    Collaborator permissions currently take precedence over shared link permissions. As a result, users accessing an editable shared links can't edit a file if they have viewer permission on the folder. In our case, we have an open folder accessible to all staff as viewer with all content accessible from our intranet. We would like to be able to create editable shared link for users to contribute to selected files.

  7. File Comments - Proposal to add comment previews in a hoover window

    An idea that I have thought about sharing is to make comments visible in a preview window when you hoover over OR when you tap one time on files. This would make it faster for users because currently each files comments are stored within the [!} of each file and only visible one at a time when they are clicked on.

    I propose to have an additional view where you can simply hoover over or tap one time on any file a window will appear showing a scrollable list of comments. The comments would allow the user to select and…

  8. Notification bubble in Grid View for Comments

    I'd like the notification bubble for comments to be returned to the grid view and not ONLY be available in list view. I have some employees that use this feature and now they have to toggle back to list view to see if there are comments of files that have been provided -vs- being able to see them at a glance in grid view as before.

  9. Warning about creating folders with invalid characters

    The web application does not currently warn users about creating folders with invalid characters. For example, if you create a folder name that ends in a period [.] via the web, that folder never comes down to the Box client on a Windows machine. This is a limitation of windows.

    However, other cloud providers WARN users before creating the folder in the first place and some even prevent the creation of the folder (Egnyte for instance).

    A warning of "The folder you are creating contains an invalid character that may not be visible to users on Windows machines" or something…

  10. Make scroll bar wider

    When viewing a CSV file via Box's web portal/app, would love to see the tiny thin scroll bars made wider. (This form won't let me upload a screenshot of exactly what I'm referring to).

  11. "Are you sure" pop-up when dragging & and dropping folders

    I'd like a pop-up message confirming if I'm sure to appear when trying to drag and drop folders on the web app. Especially in a GxP environment this is important to reduce risk of human error.

  12. Sharing UI

    More clearly subdivide the "Sharing" panel between the upper "Invite People" section and the lower "Share Link" section. The minutely thin gray line between the two doesn't adequately differentiate the two options. New users will tend to complete both options when only one sharing method is needed.

  14. Cannot see # of files in current folder (without subfolders)

    In order to get the # of files in a given folder, I have to look at the total files for that folder from the parent directory, and go through each subfolder and subtract from the total. This is a very silly way to do this and seems to be an oversight. Can BOX add this data?

    Same thing applies to folder size as well.

    The "Details" tab should include: Current folder: # of files, Current folder: size, Current folder / subfolders : # of files, Current folder / subfolders: size.

  15. Preview support for .MXF files

    MXF is an industry-standard file format for video and audio. MXF files contain information about the media inside (metadata). This file type is commonly used by marketing teams for video content. Requesting previewing support on Box Web App for .MXF files to allow easy external collaboration on this content.

  16. Ability to filter recent files by file extension

    It would be great to be able to filter files in the Recent Files section by extension, access date, etc. Currently you can't sort anything. My use case was easy. I knew I had access one Excel file one week before but couldn't remember the name nor the real date. instead of scrolling in the whole list, I could have selected "Excel / spreadsheet file" to see only these files for a faster search.

  17. About the Delete All Button in the Recycle Bin.

    About the Delete All Button in the Recycle Bin.

    When pressing the Delete All button in the Recycle Bin, the deletion process fails and an error occurs.

    It was an answer to the problem that occurred in the following procedure from Box Support (ticket number: 2694308),

    1. Among the folders in the parent-child relationship, the child folder is deleted first.
    2. Delete parent folder after.
    3. Folders of parent-child relationship are displayed separately in the trash box as different folders.
    4. In this state, if [Delete All] is pressed, an error occurs.

    The Delete All button is not available until you delete the parent-child…

  18. Ability to preview contents of the files contained in the zip file

    Box can list all the folders and files contained in the zip file, however it doesn't allow us to preview the contents of each files contained in the zip file.
    We need to download the zip file to preview the contents.

    It would be better to have ability to preview the contents of the each files so that we can complete our work within Box.

  19. Updated date and Uploaded date are not the same thing

    We would like to be able to retain the file updated date or modified date during file upload. Right now the updated date is the date file was uploaded which is not really the updated date and time from the local machine.

    This is very critical as updated date is very important to end users when migrating or uploading files to Box. Imaging thousands of files uploaded to Box all have the same uploaded date under Updated date column.

    Thank you!

  20. Disable expiration period change for public shared links only

    Currently it is possible to set up automatic expiration period for public shared links in Admin Console, which is an important security feature. However, users can extend the expiration period in Shared Link Settings. It would be more secure to disable expiration period extension for public shared links by users, while allowing them to change expiration periods for other types of shared links (company or collaborators only)
