  1. New Search Filter - 'Last Updated By'

    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.

    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.

    This feature is available for a limited set of customers. Contact your Box representative for more information.

  5. Search - Add Microsoft Visio Files (.vsd, .vsdx, etc.) to the 'Full Text Search' Index

    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_hdsiw

    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.
