  1. Ability to tag groups

    I want a function like Teams' "tag".
    Currently, only individuals can mention comments in the data saved in the box,
    I would like to be able to mention in groups.
    Can't you make better use of groups in your management console?
    One of the features of box is that multiple people can edit the same data at the same time, and there are also convenient functions such as comment fields and mention functions.
    Please consider further improving usability.

    Teamsの「タグ」のような機能が欲しい。
    現状、box内に保存したデータ内のコメントにメンションできるのは個人だけだが、
    グループでメンションをできるようにしてほしい。
    管理コンソールのグループを上手く活用できないでしょうか?
    boxには一つのデータを複数人同時編集が可能という特徴があり、コメント欄とメンション機能という便利な機能もあります。
    さらに使い勝手を良くするために検討をお願いします。

  2. We would like to see Box Tools improved to support an on/off switch for proxies

    Currently Box Tools does not support the ON/OFF switch for proxy settings, so Excel cannot be used without restarting Box Tools when switching to a connection to another company's service.
    It is inconvenient to restart Box Tools every time we connect to another company's service, so we would like to see Box Tools improved to support an on/off switch for proxies so that Excel can be used without restarting Box Tools.

    <Box ToolsがプロキシのON/OFFのスイッチに対応するよう改善してほしい>
    現状Box Toolsがプロキシ設定のON/OFFのスイッチに対応していないため、他社サービスの接続へ切り替えの際にBox Toolsを再起動しないとExcelが利用できません。
    他社サービスの接続のたびにBox Toolsを再起動するのは不便なので、Box Toolsを再起動しなくてもExcelが使えるようにBox ToolsがプロキシのON/OFFのスイッチに対応するよう改善してほしいです。

  3. shared file links are unique URLs and not a file path we need the file path!!!!!

    shared file links are unique URLs and not a file path we need the file path!!!!!
    The URL is meaningless to the end user and the file path would create an easier way to return to the same document and recognize where it is saved

  5. How can I set an opening date and time for files?

    I need to open files progressively for a class. There is an expiration setting but not an opening setting. It would be ideal to have both an opening and expiration date/time setting.

  7. Ability to select BoxEdit even when Box for Microsoft Office co-editing is enabled.

    When Box for Microsoft Office co-editing is enabled, microsoft office files cannot be edited in Box Edit.
    However, there are use cases where we may not want to co-edit.
    Even if the Box for Microsoft Office co-editing feature is enabled, we want to choose whether or not we want to edit in Box Edit.
    Box for Microsoft Office coauthoring – Box Support

    【Box for Microsoft Office共同編集機能が有効化状態でもBoxEditを選択できる機能】

    Box for Microsoft Office共同編集機能を有効にすると、microsoft officeファイルはBox Editで編集できません。
    しかし、ユースケースとして共同編集したくない場合もあります。
    Box for Microsoft Office共同編集機能が有効化されている場合でも、Box Editで編集するかどうか選択したい。

  8. I would like to use the orange/yellow comment box as a frame without the comment box showing up

    When presenting a PDF in front of a client. The pen is messy. The highlighted (comment box) works really well. How can I eliminate the comment section?

  9. Request for improving a behavior of Box tools in checking if network is recovered

    Currently, Box Tools keep attempt to ping to box during offline to check if its network is recovered. Sometimes, this wouldn't be good and may affect to the network environment.

  10. Filter during multiple edits

    When multiple users are editing the same document online, if one person applies a filter condition, it is applied for all users. Can we have options to apply filter only for self or for all users as per individual's choice? I have seen this feature while editing excels in Sharepoint. It would really help when we have lengthy spreadsheets to edit.

  11. I would like the BoxTools auto-update re-entrant interval to be shortened.

    I would like the BoxTools auto-update re-entrant interval to be shortened.

    Currently, BoxTools checks for new updates every 5~6 hours.
    If an update fails and it takes 5~6 hours to get the next update, users will not be able to use the latest version of the software, which will have a significant impact on them.
    Therefore, we would like to see the re-entrant interval shortened when an update fails.

    BoxToolsの自動更新のリエントラントの間隔を短くして欲しい

    現在BoxToolsは5~6時間ごとに新しい更新がないかを確認する挙動です。
    更新が失敗した場合に次回の更新情報の取得までに5~6時間要すると最新のバージョンでの利用が出来ず不具合が生じるなどのユーザー影響が大きいです。
    その為、更新に失敗した場合のリエントラントの間隔を短くして欲しいです。

  12. Future tasking

    Sometimes I drop a file on box and needed a reminder in the future to look at the file again. I wish that box had a function where I could task myself to look at a file or take an action on a file in the future.

  14. Allow Pin Feature to files

    Allow a Pin Feature to allow the user to fully customize filing. Make it possible to pin a file(s) in a folder so it will not move in a numerical or alphabetical order but in the order that works for your company or organization.

  15. Transition from Sandbox to Production

    When transitioning from the Sandbox to the Production environment, a tool to automate the transfer of all configuration settings (and relay settings) from the Sandbox to Production would be very helpful. It would also help to prevent errors that can occur with a manual transition.

  17. Ability to lock file to prevent other users from editing a file

    Lock and Unlock feature: The lock feature should be set so that when the Person A locks a file so that they can work on the file, it should prevent the others listed on the Share from being able to Unlock the file. It defeats the purpose of locking the file if someone else can just unlock it while Person A is still in the midst of editing a file. The only person outside of Person A who should have the option is the Owner and Co-owner of the Box folder. All others like Editor, Viewer etc, should NOT be…

  18. Default email notification for a folder

    Set a default notification setting for a folder (i.e. Every collaborator gets a notification email when a new file is uploaded), until the individual wants to change that and override it. This would be helpful in the case where we want to utilize Box to share files with external clients and avoid sending a separate email to them to let them know that we've uploaded a new file. It would be a hassle (and maybe not likely to happen) to rely on external clients to change their own personal notification settings.

  19. Automatic update of Box tools from the company LAN via a proxy.

    Box Tools automatic update fails in an environment where Internet communication is performed from the company LAN via a proxy.

    Please change the BoxTools update "Box Edit Upgrade Service" to the specifications that read the ProxySetting of CurrentUser in the Local System and communicate.

    With the current specifications, automatic updates are not possible.
    Therefore, every time there is a version update, a manual update is performed, which takes a lot of man-hours.

    (OS used: Windows10)

    We have verified and confirmed the following. (The log file has also been confirmed.)

    (1) If the logon of "Box Edit Upgrade Service" is "Local…
