  1. Extract transcode and metadata from a video file

    Regrading the video file, it would be great if we can extract transcode and metadata while it is inside Box

  2. Support preview of script files such as Powershell .ps1 and .psm files

    Preview fails on Box Web for Powershell scripts having a ps1 or other related extension.
    Ideally this would allow one to look at the current as well as prior versions of the file in Box Web without having to download each version separately.

  3. Thumbnail previews of documents should show file type: docx vs pdf

    The new BOX.Com format no longer shows Word Docs with a Symbol vs PDF with
    a different symbol.

    i.e. they have removed the prior, very visual, cues as to document type.
    We can still see EXCEL symbol, but hopefully that will not be lost

    This is a problem for us since we have many documents with long names, and
    can't always see the final extension
    Not to mention visual cues are exceedingly useful and helpful.

  4. Default PDF Preview Size

    Can we please set the default zoom percentage on a PDF that is being shared and viewed using Box? When you view a PDF, it would be great to be able set it so each page or spread fills the viewable screen.

  5. Please change the resolution of the Box preview function to a higher resolution./ Boxプレビュー機能の解像度を高解像度に変更して欲しい。

    Please change the resolution of the Box preview function to a higher resolution.

    If you specify a magnification level that is sufficient to display the entire page and preview a file containing text, such as PDF or Word, the text resolution is low and the fonts displayed are difficult to read.

    (In Japanese)
    Boxプレビュー機能の解像度を高解像度に変更して欲しい。
    ページ全体を表示する程度の倍率を指定し、PDFやWordなどの文字を含むファイルをプレビューすると、文字の解像度が低く、表示されるフォントが読みづらい。

  6. Add preview of images in WebP format

    Could you be so kind to add preview of images in WebP format?

    It is already supported by all major browsers (except for Safari, alas) https://caniuse.com/#search=webp I prefer it because its lossless mode consumes less disk space than PNG 24bit and it makes less noise than JPG in lossy mode. At present WebP images are displayed as general files within Box interface, whereas traditional JPG/PNG are displayed better as they have fancy thumbnails. Thank you in advance.

  7. Add 'share current page' tickbox to sharing popup

    As a user, I want to be able to share the current page of a file I'm previewing in Box so that I can direct my colleagues to a specific point in a slide deck as opposed to the start

  8. Option to turn off or remove the Sign Up or Log In screen when clicked on shared links

    I would like the option to turn off or remove the Sign Up or Log In screen when my client clicked on my shared links. This pop-up window confuses them and leading them to think they must Sign Up or Log in in order for them to view and download my shared documents.

    If my client like your product structure, I am sure they will sign up for an account themselves without the need to prompt them every time. This effect my business as I have received many complains about this window. They recommend for me to use other methods.

  9. I want to display the same date and time as the original file when I preview the file.

    Please fix the following issues in the preview, which are also noted as known limitations:.

    [Excerpt from the article]
    Excel preview does not follow time information in the original file. When previewing Excel documents in Box, the time-related functions (for example, TODAY() or TIME()) do not display accurately. This is because Excel date/time functions are dynamic, while the previewed document is static. Box preview obtains and displays the date the file was previewed. A static version of the time/date is displays in the previewed document, based on the time the preview was generated.

  10. Please enable autoplay for multiple files in a folder

    You used to be able to enable autoplay for files in a box folder. Now, even if you click on "enable" for autoplay, it does not. Why????

  11. Please Improve the overwriting of a file with the same name when it is uploaded with "Previewer/uploader" permission.

    Please improve the following problems that occur when using the "Pre Viewer/ Uploader" privilege.

    When a file with the same name as an existing file is uploaded, the file is overwritten and saved.

    When a user with the "Pre Viewer/ Uploader" privilege uploads the same file name, Please the file name should be automatically converted to a different file name from the existing file, such as "File Name_2", so that it can be uploaded.

    「プレビューアー/アップローダー」権限の際に起こる下記現象を改善してください。

    既に存在しているファイルと同一名のファイルをアップロードした際、上書き保存されてしまう事象。

  12. permanently purge file version history

    Hello,

    We have a use case that we use box as a temporary storage location in a workflow. But once the workflow is finished, we would like to purge the information but "keep" the same boxfileid. We thought by deleting the version history, we would have achieved this. But it turns out the deleted version history is restorable.

    I am wondering if it is possible to
    (1) optionally make a file "not" able to store version history
    (2) or optionally permanently delete a version

  14. I would really love to be able to see and use my PDF bookmarks from within the Box preview service

    I have large PDF files that are stored on Box. Rather than having to always download the files I would like to use the bookmarks within the PDF to navigate even if I am in the Box Preview function.

    Thank you for considering this enhancement

  15. Correct the wording of 'Prior Versions'

    Your Website states that:
    The maximum number of prior file versions you can access corresponds to your Box account type:

    Personal Free - 1 Version

    This simply isn't true, and I have argued this in a ticket and with a live agent, but the statement implies you can access a prior version of your file.

    Definition of Prior is "earlier in time or order" so this makes your statement false as you cannot access anything but the CURRENT version in the Free version.

    I would suggest the wording:
    The maximum number of file versions you can access corresponds to your…

  16. Option to disable thumbnail preview entirely or for certain file types

    Thumbnail previews of text based documents are not useful. I had a user reach out about this. they would rather have the icon preview for docx/pdf since the thumbnail is too small to give any info.

  18. Rotate/Zoom PDF within Preview

    Similar to image types (e.g., jpg, png, etc.) where can rotate within the Document Viewer, be able to rotate pdf within Document Viewer in Box. Reason being, sometimes images are embedded within pdf to which may need to rotate to get a better view of.

  19. Edit thumbnails

    We would like the ability to choose/change the thumbnail of an MP4 file. The random thumbnail
    of my latest project shows our guest speaker in an awkward manner. We don't want her to be hesitant to share it! We offer a library of MP4s and consider thumbnail modification an esthetic/branding opportunity.
