  1. Ability to rearrange the image files displayed on Box Drive and Box Web

    For image files (photos), such as jpg and png files, there is a Date taken item in the "Properties".
    On Box Drive and Box Web, We wants to organize the photos by descending or ascending order based on the Date taken.
    However, since [Box Drive] and [Box Web] do not have the Date taken attribute, files cannot be organized by the date and time they were taken.
    Thus, we would like you to add the Date taken attribute.

  2. URL to open folder or file by full English path name.

    Box allows me to create named folders and files. Box SHOULD allow me to use a URL to get there? The File ID is visually useless. Box should store the English name as an alias to the ID -- and allow this feature. I am astonished this wasn't a base product feature. I'm also astonished you haven't added it as it's clear in the feedback from others it's WANTED. Shame on Box for not providing this feature.

    In the meantime, I'll be forced to find another cloud-based file storage solution.

  3. Option to enforce Box account login on public shared link

    Provide an option to require a user to login to a Box account in order to access a public shared link. This becomes useful when you want to record a specific access audit trail but do not have a specific person in mind and therefore cannot invite them as a collaborator

  4. Back Button Updates

    Could you update Box to have the Back button return you to the same spot you were at before you hit the Back button? Currently it takes you back to the top of the previous page you were on. When you have a list of 200 folders, its very cumbersome to have to scroll through the all the pages just to find where you left off.

  5. Improve messaging when moving folders between owners

    Currently in the web app, a co-owner of a folder is able to move that folder to another location with different ownership. It makes sense that this is allowed and I don't want that to change. However, when the user does this action, they are presented first with an error dialog that suggests the action failed. If they click the "Details" button, they then see a confirmation dialog that ultimately lets them complete the operation.

    I think a confirmation dialog is appropriate, but it should be presented to the user immediately and not hidden behind the initial error dialog.

  6. Select all the files in the folder and easily move or copy them

    I need a feature that allows me to select all the files in a folder (or similar features) and easily move or copy them.
    Because, when we use "Ctrl + A" to select all the files, it takes a lot of time to load all the items, so it's not possible to actually select all the files in the folder with "Ctrl + A".

  7. Make it easier to share with Box App Service Accounts or App Users

    It'd be nice to allow users to be able to share with Service Accounts and App Users via the Service Account's application name and the App User's user name like how it works with other users rather than having to directly input the email addresses like "AutomationUser1234567aBC12DeF3g@boxdevedition.com" or "AppUser12345671aB2CDEfgh@boxdevedition.com"

  8. Export the accessing users area and their IP addresses to the access statistics reports

    It will be more convenient if the accessing users area and their IP addresses is exported in the access stats report.

    We can see the areas where the accessing users are and their IP addresses in "the access stats dialog box".
    However, when we export access statistics, we can't export the above information.

    As we know, the activity reports can help us as a way to see the user's operation history and IP address,
    But I think those information should be exported to the access statistics reports, not just displayed in the dialog box.

  9. share link permission to group

    It would be great if we can add a four option as a share link permission to "Group Only" so I can share it to the users who belong to my group.

  10. Display actual user name instead of "Previous Collaborators"

    About the owner and last updater of files and folders on BOX. If you delete the owner's account, the owner will be displayed as "Previous Collaborators", but I would like you to leave the owner name without changing to this display. It is necessary to comply with the Japanese local electronic bookkeeping law. Please consider.

    BOX上のファイルやフォルダの所有者、最終更新者についてです。所有者のアカウントを削除すると所有者は「以前のコラボレータ」表示になりますが、この表示に変更せず所有者名を残していただきたいです。日本ローカルな電子帳簿法対応で必要です。ご検討ください。

  12. Addition of a function to confirm whether or not to overwrite a file with the same name if it exists in the destination folder when a file w

    When copying a file from another folder in a Box, if the destination folder contains a file with the same name, a message will appear asking if the file should be overwritten.
    The message "There is a file with the same name, do you want to overwrite it? and if the user selects "Yes", the file can be overwritten.

    Currently, the process is: "Add (1) to the end of the copied file"⇒ "Rename the file that already exists" ⇒ "Remove (1) from the end of the copied file".

  14. To default folders to sort files descending not ascending.

    Not sure why the Box program does not offer a default for folders/files to sorted descending not ascending. Who or what application does it benefit for the folders/files to be defaulted to the ascending, other than the constant secondary clicking of a mouse to hit the name sort button.

  15. Option to replace new Recents Carousel with older slider view

    I would like an option to replace new Recents Carousel with the former horizontal slider view when using a browser on a PC. On a wide screen the older view is a more efficient use of space.

  16. Remove uploader's name

    It'd be useful to turn on/off the name of the uploader from files/folders.

    My VAs upload files and I don't want my clients to see who's uploading them as they sometimes think the designs are not done by me, but by other people, so it's causing confusion.

  17. Ability to Sort comment order by page

    When using Adobe Document Cloud, it keeps comments grouped on the same page versus oldest to newest. It's useful when reviewing one page at a time. Can we get a sort filter system that allows: by page, oldest, newest, commenter?

  18. Box.com - When sharing folders with External collaborators, to have a copy of the email from Box with the message I added

    Marked as optional, we should get a copy of the email that Box sent when using the "Message (optional)" option. I work with lawyers and law-related users that need proof of sending invites to external collaborators. There's no confirmation when you invite someone to collaborate to your folder, you only get an email once they accept the invite.

  19. Let user disable shortcut top menu () or load shortcut menu before files listing

    Hi everyone,

    whenever we user move from one folder to the next, using the web app in a browser, the page load is delayed by the shortcut menu on top. This shortcut menu displays buttons for [Upload][Folder][Word Document][Excel Spreasheet].

    The current implementation is sooo annoying, since these four buttons are loaded on page and after the files listing in the directory. Unfortunately this shifts the file list of the directory down on the page each time.

    This shifting down the file listing on the page is so annoying for browsing directories, since in that time one can't aim for clicking…

  20. Include HTTP Last-Modified / Current Version Header of Direct Link

    When you as a web client access to the direct link to a file in Box, the HTTP server responds only
    {...,
    Date=Sat, 09 Jul 2022 02:53:40 GMT,
    Expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT,
    ...},
    which does not include "Last-Modified" information.
