Currently, texts in Metadata can only be searched by exact match especially for Japanese characters. We would like to see an improvement to make it "contains" search as it is available in the standard search.85 votes
We are planning improvements to how we handle Japanese language queries but this work is not currently on the roadmap in the next 12 months. We will take this into consideration for the annual roadmap for next year.
AS A Box user searching for content
I WANT to be able to see the number of search results returned when I enter a search
SO THAT I know if my search query needs to be refined or expanded20 votes
We believe that there are some key data elements that should be filters in the search (and are collected by Box so they should be searchable) and hope to see them in the future. The main one is the "creator" since the "owner" is the only filter that allows you to determine who created the content. Since our Box instance is configured in a way where BoxAdmin owns all of our content, BoxAdmin is also the "owner" of everything. This makes search useless when someone is looking for content that they created.40 votes
There may be times when you just want to see a list of the hits without looking at the actual files, or download the files themselves without the details28 votes
Currently, multiple tags return items that include any of tags in the search29 votes
Add a new “Number of Versions” filter to the Search page in Box that allows you to filter by number of versions a file has. For example, “Only show me files with the word ‘cloud’ that have less than 10 versions”.5 votes
We need this feature for legal eDiscovery purposes.
We were doing some file name search testing, and we found some odd results based on our filename searches.
If the filename was alphaomega and we tried searching for omega the search does not pull up any results, but searching alpha does pull up the alphaomega files.19 votes
Thank you for the feedback. We have noted this feature request and understand the value of this feature. Unfortunately, it is not on the current roadmap.
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.35 votes
This is currently not on the roadmap and will be revisited in the nearest future.
Customers would like the ability to modify the Box search service to point to a customer specific index from within the Box UI since KeySafe disables 10k character capabilities.8 votes
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.
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_hdsiw15 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.
