  1. login page Customization

    The login page is very confusing for our external collaborators. Despite the creation of "How to log on to Box" with pictures, external collaborators still click on the wrong link as the "Continue" button (for our managed users) is very large compare to the small font link for the external collaborators. The natural instinct is to click on "Continue" which gives the external collaborator an error since they are not part of the "managed users" and will not be able to SSO to our Box. Our staff is having to help our external customer on regular basis.
    Can the login…

  2. Sharing a Collection

    I understand that collections are meant to be a user specific setting, however, it would be great to have the ability to share a collection with a co-worker.

  3. Relay Workflow period Allocations based on work days rather than natural days (i.e Exclude Weekends)

    When assigning a task in relay you can assign the period in days associated to the task. at This point in time this does not allow the option to assign such days to working days but only natural days. Therefore if and when a weekend occurs during the timeline of the workflow action weekend days (non-working days absorbs the task timeline. the request is that there must be an option to assign a task only for working days (excluding weekends)

  4. When copying a folder with File Requests configured within it, add an option to have the File Request configurations copied as well.

    We have a need to setup folders with File Request features for our customers. When we do this manually, it takes a lot of time to set everything up as we need it. We'd like to be able to copy a folder (along with its subfolders) and its File Request setup. This would make any existing setup, like a template, which we can simply copy and rename in preparation for another customer.

    Currently, we can only copy the folders with or without contents. But either action does not copy the File Request configurations in the source folder.

    Thanks for your…

  6. Notify me when a file is unlocked by another collaborator

    When a file is locked for editing by another user, on a case-by-case basis, I would like to be notified via email when that file is unlocked.

    Either:


    1. a file-setting that always notifies me after a user unlocks a specific file or

    2. a one-off subscription to a file when it is locked that I can set that notifies me via email when that file is unlocked. After this one-off notice occurs, the subscription would be deleted.

  7. Please stop removing features and services for paying Personal Pro accounts; or give us the chance to upgrade without 3 users min

    I have been paying for Personal Pro since 2014. Since then I have been paying the same amount every month, and have had features and services removed.

    First was tracking file downloads/views. Then this week I lost the ability to make Custom URLs.

    When I asked about my options, I was told that I could upgrade to a Business account; but for that I'd need a minimum of 3 users. I am a freelancer and work by myself. I have no need to pay for 3 users when it's just me.

    I think it's completely unprofessional and unethical to not…

  8. Select folders from hard drive to sync with box

    Rather than syncing to a separate Box folder on my desktop, I would an application that would make it able to flag folders and files that already exist on my hard drive. I would very much prefer to be able to open my Windows Explorer and right-click on a folder and make a selection that would automatically sync that folder from where it is in my hard drive to Box.

  9. Flexibility to adjust column settings on the left panel

    Flexibility to adjust column settings on the left panel - where favorites are listed. It is very small and you can not see the entire field name.

    This field is stationary and will not adjust.

  10. The support for Large contents migration

    The support for large contents migration

    Snowball(AWS) type of migration should be supported by Box. Especially the customers who have tons of files/folders as TB/PB level has a hard time for content to move from Windows servers to Cloud systems like Box.

  11. Email Upload Confirmation Failure reason

    For Email Uploading to a folder, it would be nice if the confirmation email received by the sender would specify the reason for it failing so a ticket doesn't to be submitted to support for answer to that.

  12. Box new account

    Here is an idea to make Box new accounts on-boarding more user friendly.
    My account team was not clear on any ETA when to expect the account to become active.
    Not a single email was sent what to expect and at what time. After 2 weeks the purchased licenses were assigned to another account. After that I was told to submit a ticket to support to resolve the problem created during the initial provisioning of the account.
    I have to say that's not the level of customer service I was expecting from Box.com

  15. Increase Basic upload limit during COVID-19 stay home mandate?

    At least during this crisis, could you allow for a much higher upload limit, say 1GB? Please? Your user interface is the very best for those who are unfamiliar with large file transfers and there are many people unfamiliar right now.

  16. layout for accepting custom terms of service needs improving for lower resolution screens

    I just had to change to another device, from my laptop, in order to make the "accept" button visible on a custom terms of service popup. Any click outside the popup dismissed it so scrolling didn't work to gain access to the button.

    The screen in question is 768 vertical resolution, so not too unusual, and there was a lot of unnecessary vertical white space on the popup that pushed the button off screen.
    Browser was Chrome on windows.

    Simply making this popup less high, or moving the button away from the lower corner, would enable a much better sign…

  17. Have cursor be in New Folder name input upon selecting New/Folder

    This used to happen automatically but now when a user creates a new folder, they have to click into the folder name input box; last month, this was not an issue (i.e., when a user clicked New, then Folder, they could instantly start typing the name of the new folder and then click Create to make the folder).

  18. Function to disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled in the "P

    We would like a function to disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled in the "Privacy" folder settings.

    If you invite multiple external collaborators, you don't want external people to detect who you are inviting.
    There is a function to hide collaborators, but if invited external users use comments, tasks, version history, it will be possible to see who is invited, so we would like to disable these functions I do.

  19. We want to use the Box embed widget to display PDFs for the public on our website. But the widget is too cluttered for public consumption.

    The embed widget would be much more useful if it wasn't cluttered up with things like who uploaded the file, the file size, a login window (which is super confusing for a public website) and so on.

    There needs to be a plain vanilla embed widget or better yet, the ability to turn on and off the extra clutter.

  20. Provide a glossary?

    Seat, user, internal user, external user, collaborator, link sharer, editor, viewer, “inviting collaborators,” “sharing links,” and more - that's a LOT of jargon. How about providing a glossary of your terms for the uninitiated?
