  2. Simplify "File Request" window

    I have users on my team still using ShareFile to specifically "request files" from external people because the process is simpler. Three key suggestions for the Box "File request" feature:
    1) Can you streamline the pop-up window to focus on the "link" versus the embed widget link. 2) Expose the option/checkbox of the requestor to receive an email when the content is uploaded.
    3) Allow the requestor to adjust the expiration date. Default would be tied to the admin link share policies

    Thanks!

  3. Saving File Request Options

    If you open “…” > File Request in the folder, you will see the “File Request” function.

    There are 4 items in “Customize options” of file request.
    There is a checkbox for each.

    If you close the screen with this checkbox selected, the next time you open it, it is unchecked.

    Can there be a save button so that we are not mistaken that we selected settings for the link? Or can the settings remain checked so that when we re-open the option, we can see that we did select settings for the link?

  6. Collaborator list size is too small

    We have a few users complaining the list view is limited.
    Why is this constrained to only 11 collaborators per page? The paginated UX is cumbersome

    I’m pleased to report that this change has now been released to all users. When looking at the Collaborators page for a given file or folder, you should now see far more than just 10 users per page, meaning less pagination clicks for you.

  7. Advanced settings on file request link – expiration and password

    Would like the ability to protect links through password and expiration.

  8. Email Upload feature that uploads content of email, not just attachments

    Currently, with the way the Email Upload feature works, is it uploads attachments into the folder specified. Can we also add a feature where it give us the option to store the text content of the emails as well?

  9. Please make it convenient to receive files from guest account. I want to contact the upload URL with one button, like a file request of D

    Please make it convenient to receive files from guest account.
    I want to contact the upload URL with one button, like a file request of Dropbox, and manage contacts.

  11. Add a personal message box when inviting a collaborator to a FILE

    Currently this process is completed via the Box Web interface. When we grant access to a folder, we are given a personal message text box that allows the user to leave a comment, or instruction for the audience the user is sending the collaboration to. Currently, when sending an invite to collaborate on a FILE, the user must send a separate email, giving direction to the employee receiving the collaboration invite to a file. Having this enhancement added would remove one step of inviting a collaborator to a file.

  12. Make the "More Options" menu more visible in the Preview mode.

    We would like to see something similar to the menu you see (tags, email, download, move/copy, etc.) when you highlight a file name in a folder list, but perhaps smaller icons/buttons.

  15. Support new High Efficiency Image Format (HEIF) in Box Preview (Desktop/Mobile)

    In iOS 11 Apple has changed the default camera image format from JPEG to HEIF. So, if you have an iPhone 7/8 your photos are now in a .heic files and not .jpg. If you try to upload a HEIC file to Box you will not be able to preview the file. Same goes for mobile. We want the ability to preview these images in Box

  16. "Make Current" and "Remove" action options on version history should be removed for certain permission levels

    Certain options show up in the Version History modal even though clicking them leads to a generic red "Server Error" banner (since they don't have permissions to do it). This leads to user confusion - why is there an error? Why is this action even here if I shouldn't be allowed to do it?

    Observed behavior (reproduced from user):

    Viewer Uploader
    -can currently see all three options (Download, Make Current, Remove)
    -"Remove" option gives a Server Error (option should just be removed entirely)

    Viewer
    -can currently see all three options
    -"Make Current" or "Remove" options give Server Errors (options should…

    I’m happy to report that we have now launched this improvement to the Version History pop-up experience.

  17. Upload Widget - Make the Upload Widget Function Like a File Request with URL for Sharing

    Allow users to do a 'File Request' where they are able to send a link to a person who can then upload a file/content without the person needing a Box account.

  18. Allow Searching by Last Name - Invite Collaborators / Email Shared Link / Comment @Mentions

    In the Invite Collaborators modal (and other locations such as the Comment composer), Box's autocomplete feature only allows the user to search by either email address and/or first AND last name. Meaning for user John Doe with email jdoe@box.com, a search for...--"John D" will populate correctly--"jdoe" will populate correctly--"Doe" will NOT populate correctly REQUEST: Allow searching by last name (without having to enter first name before).

    Thank you for submitting this request. We’re pleased to announce that we have added support for searching by last name and email address when sharing from the Box web application. We hope to expand this functionality to our comments support in a future release.

  19. Show Exact Timestamp for Comments (Instead of 'X Months Ago')

    Make new Web App comment timestamps exact, just like they were in Legacy.

    We’ve updated the timestamps shown in the Activity sidebar of Amsterdam for Comments and Tasks such that they now show a more logical mix of exact and relative dates. Additionally, you can always hover over a timestamp to see a tooltip with the full day/date/time for any entry.

  20. Enterprise level option to default collaborator permission to either Viewer or Editor

    We would like to default all collaborators to Viewer vs the standard/OOTB Editor role
