  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…

  2. 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

  3. Instructions for installing cli on Linux

    Why don't you at least include some guidance on https://developer.box.com/docs/box-cli regarding where to start if you are using Linux? I have been unable to effectively use my box account since the webdav support ended, and every so often take another stab at it. It would be nice if this page at least pointed to the best resources for installing on Linux, rather than just giving a link to the download pages.

  4. 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…

  5. 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!

  6. 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".

  7. 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,…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  15. Ability to find a file or folder using just the ID.

    Is Box working on an easier tool to lookup files and folders based off of ID?

    I'd like to suggest a box tool where we can find the file and folder using just the ID. Having to run a 40+ min report on all of our files and folders anytime a user asks is very time consuming. I get 5+ requests a day.

  16. I have asked to be notified (in the folder settings) when someone uploads a document but I don't receive any emails.

    I have asked to be notified (in the folder settings) when someone uploads a document but I don't receive any emails. I used to receive emails but I don't anymore. Why did that change??

  19. update date information

    When someone update files on the box, the "edit date" has not been updated on my box system.
    How should I change the setting?
    Or are there some issues on the box now?

  20. viewing annotated PDFs with 100% opacity highlights completely blots out text on browser but not acrobat or Docutments by Readdle

    I like to annotate PDFs on my iPad (through Documents) and browser (through Box tools). When I preview a document with 100% opacity highlights on a browser it begins to load with readable text but switches to completely blotted out text when fully loaded. I used 100% opacity because it looks the best on acrobat PDF and ipad app Documents by Readdle. Please change settings so that 100% opacity highlights do not completely blot out text when previewing in browser.
