Currently, Box users can't search by a criteria of the user who updated some document most recently. There's a search filter for 'owner', but not 'last updated/modified by'.
REQUEST: Add a 'last updated/modified by' filter to the quick search and full search results filter options.19 votes
Thank you for the feedback. The ability to search over recent editors is on our roadmap.
I'd like to be able to use search to search over the contents of scanned PDFs21 votes
Due to shifting priorities in this unprecedented time, this feature will be delayed. We are updating the status to “not planned” until we are confident we can deliver the feature. At that time, we will update the status on this site.
Hi, thank you for the feedback on how to improve Box. Unfortunately, OCR for images to capture data from images is not on our roadmap at at this time. However OCR for scanned PDFs is on our roadmap. Link to OCR for scanned PDFs idea: https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/35984620-native-ocr-optical-character-recognition-support.
This feature is available for a limited set of customers. Contact your Box representative for more information.
Box already has in-file search ('full text search') on other Office file types (Word Docs, PowerPoint files, and Excel spreadsheets), so users expect that Visio files (which are part of the Office suite) would also be indexed by Box. REQUEST: Include contents of Visio files (.vsd, .vsdx, etc.) in Box's search index. Context - here's the externally-documented list of file types supported by Box's in-file ('full text search') feature: https://community.box.com/t5/Managing-Your-Content/Search-Overview-and-FAQs/ta-p/354#search_hdsiw11 votes
Thanks for the feedback! We have and added this to our backlog. Due to low customer demand for these types, they are currently not prioritized on the roadmap.
