  1. Locked Files

    It would be REALLY great if there were a way in Box to pull up all of the files you have locked. My team shares tons of excel files all day long. If I forget to unlock a file, no one else knows if they can get in. Half the time I'm not in it but forgot to unlock it. If there were a way to pull up all files at any given time in one place that I've locked where I could unlock them from that screen if I'm no longer in them, it would save us a lot…

    Please put the tag button back on the page! I hate having to search through the drop down with the new updates. Weirdly, it appears when you highlight more than one document - but we need it back when only tagging one document!

  3. Support Smart View when using Excel Online by Box Edit

    When filtering an excel file on Box by Excel Online, that filter does reflect to the other users. We would like an option to have the independent filter between users. For Microsoft environment, Smart View is now generally available so we want the same functionality on Box as well.

  4. create folder

    Can we create a new folder that way we can organize documents we upload onto BOX? like if i have a bunch of pictures from a specific vacation, and other pictures from other vacations, i'd rather each picture be in specific folders rather than all over the place and i have to guess when and where the picture or file is and where it belongs to.

    thanks

  5. Add ability to cancel opening a file through Box Edit

    If a large file is accidentally clicked on to open through Box Edit, it would be nice to be able to cancel opening the file. That way, you wouldn't have to wait even longer for the correct file to open.

  6. Box Tools - Excel as default application for CSV and XLS

    We would like Box Edit to have Excel as the default application for all excel files, including CSV.

    Right now we run into an issue with CSV files where it is necessary to perform an operation to copy and then paste to Excel from Notepad. (Since opening CSV files might cause garble due to a character code (UTF-8), we are opening Notepad first and then open Excel files)
    Another workaround would be editing the registry which is risky and inconvenient - which is why we would like Edit to automatically open CSV with Excel as the default

  7. Box Tools: Change Cache location

    Ability to customise the location of Box Tools folder

    We would like to have the feature to customise the location of Box Tools folders such as logs and cache folder. We want to have those under drive of other volume letter instead of the default location under C drive. This is because the storage size of C drive can be limited.

  9. Accessibility Issues in new version

    The new app version has blocked the possibility to read in loud voice for blind people. with the two fingers gesture.
    That is a very handfull accessibility tool. And it always worked, until now.
    Thank you.

  10. List of All Folders that I own.

    New Feature to allow individual users to pull a Report of all the folders that they personally "Own".

    The reasoning behind this is due to the fact that Lotus Notes Teamrooms are being sunset, and BOX is becoming the repository for many Accounts Contractual Data. From a business controls perspective, "Owners"must now must ensure that they "Secure" confidential contractual data via folder Settings. Since BOX has been around for some time, we could have access to hundreds of folders, and it is very time consuming to check which are the ones we "Own".

  11. DocuSign Drafts in Box

    If we have a large signing process going through DocuSIgn, we could have 100 documents that need to go to clients over a short period of time. In DocuSign, we regularly use the Save and Close option to prepare a document, rather than send it. Once we have all the docs preparared with signature blocks etc, we go into each draft and hit Send.

    It would be good if Box could track the Draft in DocuSign, and allow you to go back into the document in Box and send from there. The only workaround is to login to DocuSign to…

  12. It would be nice if the "Updated" column showed a time, not just a date, stamp

    We update our files so frequently that the date stamp is not sufficient; we need a time stamp. Thank you!

  13. Binding existing files/folders to a virtual folder for sharing

    Situation
    I've been working on several projects for a client, with a main folder for each project containing the project files, organised in sub folders. My client asked me if it was possible to point him to one folder that contained the neccessary files from each project for simplified access, without having to send him multiple sharing links to each folder instead.

    Approach
    Normally I would set up that folder on my local computer, put in all the necessary files and upload it, providing a sharing link to my client.

    Suggestion
    What if it was possible to bypass this step…

  14. Meine Daten herunterladen

    Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

    Wie so gibt es bei Box keine Möglichkeit alle Daten zu markieren zum Herrenunterladen?

    Nach der europäischen Verordnung und dem Deutschen Recht sind Sie dazu verpflichtet ohne noch mehr Abkassieren zu müssen.

    Sollten Sie diesen Butten nicht einführen werde ich Anwälte dafür beauftragen die Bürger der Bundesrepublik und der Europäischen Union das Recht bekommen!
    Denn was Sie hier betreiben geht so überhaupt nicht und werde ich so nicht dulden.
    Von daher bitte ich sie Höflichst darum einen Butten zu setzen so das man auch die Möglichkeit hat Daten herunterzuladen und das nicht nur mit Windows,…

  18. Is there a way to make comments on MBox folders private/directed toward specific individuals in an MBox group without seen by others?

    I am part of a team that uses MBox to securely upload and view videos of infants who are identified at risk of adverse neurodevelopmental conditions to conduct a standardized assessment on each infant. Typically, when team members upload videos of their patients, we have to send multiple emails in order to a) notify the team that a new video has been uploaded and b) respond to the individual who uploaded the video to offer feedback/scoring. Is there a way to make the MBox comments privatized in order to reduce a bias effect on scoring the videos (and minimize the…

  19. O365 Collaboration Speed Improvement

    Whatever API is being used with your Microsoft partner is causing a diminished experience when collaborating with more than 10-12 users in an Excel spreadsheet compared to Google Sheets. I understand that these platforms are fundamentally different and handle collaboration with their own set of customized tools, but the experience in collaboration for Excel for numerous users should be as smooth as working on SharePoint or OneDrive. We don't allow Google in our workflow, collaboration in Excel is laggy, slow and terrible.
