  4. Improve annotations for Box Previewer UI element

    One of the main feature of our proof-of-concept utilizes Box’s concept of collaborations. We want to demonstrate beyond the capability of the basic file/folder sharing by utilizing the Box Previewer UI element and enabling the annotation feature. The annotation is such a great feature to enhance business and client relationship in the digital space. We implemented this feature however we found there are some challenges and we are hoping Box can help us find a solution to create a better experience.


    1. We were able to activate the annotation but only within app users. Both our employee entities and customer entities…

  5. make the current page more obvious in the ppt preview panel

    In the (ppt) preview the current page in the left panel has a rather innocuous grey border that is difficult to spot, so it's too easy to loose track of which page I'm looking at in the overall document.

    It would be better if it used a brighter accent colour, or maybe change the colour of the entire whitespace around the current page.

  6. 0 Second .mov files do not preview

    If a .mov file is 0 seconds in length, it fails to preview on Box.com and mobile applications. iOS for new versions defaults pictures to this file format. Therefore, many pictures taken on newer iPhones do not preview in Box.

  7. Disable Preview Thumbnail feature

    It would be good to have a profile setting to disable the Preview Thumbnail feature for my account. The feature should also remember whether you toggle the feature off for a specific file, so you don't have to repeatedly toggle it every time you view the file.

  9. I would like the kind of functionality in BOX that I get with GoogleDocs

    My main input is that I would like the kind of functionality in BOX that I get with GoogleDocs – in particular the ability to work in a document at the same time, see who is editing the document at a time, track their changes, revert to newer versions. In box, the work is linear and when you are working at the same time and save (if you haven’t lockd people out), it makes another copy. Seems so slow compared to GoogleDoc speed.

  10. View only share link to have a print option

    When you give someone a share link to view only, it would be really useful if there was a print option as is available for normal previews.

  11. A method/feature to be able to preview each version on wide screen

    Regarding versioning – We can preview each old version but it reverted to the current version once we click Hide Sidebar ([>]).

  12. Treat .todo files as plain text

    There is a plugin for Sublime Text that lets you create .todo files for task lists. These are just plain text files so it would be great if they could be previewed and treated as plain text. I'm mainly interested in being able to use the versioning to see the history of these files.

  13. Add-ons tab and drawing ability

    The one crucial thing is that people cannot today leave google docs or other Word editing software. Because the G-suite integration misses the add-ons tab. You can buy stuff via the add-ons tab in google drive, like icons and symbols. These cannot be used in the g suite integration.

    Also the draw option is not available. I want to be able to draw tables and figures in my documents, i can't do that. So if im Writing in a document, at some Point i have to stop and refer back to google drive, which makes the whole idea of using…

  15. Real time collaborative PDF Markup

    Real time collaborative PDF markup between multiple users. Similar to how the iwork suite can be used collaboratively but with PDF. Drawing tools and iOS integration would be important. maybe using something like https://www.pdftron.com

  17. Preview support for PST and MBOX

    AS A Box User who accesses pst and mbox files in Box
    I WANT to be able to view those files in the Box Preview window
    SO THAT I do not have to download the files from Box and open them with another application.

    2. We support our Corporate Investigations, People and Culture, and Legal Services teams with e-discovery requests - specifically gmail and Google Chat exports from Google Vault.

  19. Support frame-by-frame video preview

    I am shocked that Box doesn’t allow frame by frame movement through web viewing. This is something that should be addressed as a priority. I won’t be subscribing to Box until this is an available function. This is so necessary in the television industry without downloading.
