  1. Save Collaboration Invite

    I included an email address in my invite message, so the invite was not sent and I got the error, "Collaboration invite was not sent because URLs are not supported in the invite message."

    I had dozens of invitees and a fairly long invite message, so it was aggravating when the invite was not saved for me to edit (remove the email in the message) and retry.

  3. Please make it possible to send invitations to inactive users.

    Administrator fails when inviting inactive users.
    Please make it possible to send invitations to inactive users.
    After sending the invitation, the administrator activates the target user as required.
    This is a useful feature for large accounts with many administrative users.

  5. Allow inheritance in folder structure

    Windows allows for folders to enable or disable inheritance from Parent folder to Child folders. This is needed in BOX so collaborators who don't need access or shouldn't have access to certain Child folders within a Parent folder can still navigate where access is needed and not expose sensitive data.

  6. Create Folder For New User

    Create Folder For New User

    Within the old UI, an admin had the option to create a new folder while adding a new user. Within the new UI, they do not have this ability.

  7. Collect price offers that are published at a specific time

    Would like to be able to create a user where the user can upload offers for a job. BUT the information must first be published to everyone including admin at a specified time.
    In other words, holding a tender via box.

  8. allowing admins to sort by what folder permissions a user has so we can mirror those for another user

    allowing admins to sort by what folder permissions a user has so we can mirror those for another user. Right now, I can't sort by permissions under a user. I have to manually scroll down the whole folder structure and then have another window open with the user that needs the same permissions to the same folders, and add them manually. Why can't we sort by folder owner, or permission?

  9. Group permission and deleting data

    We would like the ability to modify the Editor group so it cannot delete data, or another role added that can support this. We need a group that can edit/rename files, but not delete.

  10. Blind Guide - Instructions for new collaborators

    I wish to state my ongoing frustration with sharing collaborative folders with my clients via box. The instructions for me, as part of a subscribed user group, are clear. The instructions for a new user who we invite to collaborate ARE NOT. You put me in a position of the blind guide when the client or collaborator asks me for help getting to the files – and Box has not provided sufficient instructions. I suspect Box assumes because I have logged into box as a new user once in the past, that I know how to coach a new user…

  12. Grant customized permissions to users/automation process, as per business requirements.

    Grant customized permissions to users/automation process, as per business requirements. Restricting permissions completely, cripples the automation system. Create additional permissions or permission groups to manage the Collaboration Space allotted to the client's business.
    The client will define the required permission for users, and they will own any responsibility for their resources on Box.
    We are performing automation using RPA, with limited access, unable to automate to maximum extent. Cannot be raising tickets with Box team for every activity that the bot cannot perform.

  13. Associate Group with Shared Email Address

    In Enterprise User Management tools such as GSuite and Active Directory, it is very common to have a group specifically for Distribution lists or shared email inboxes.

    It would be helpful if, within Box groups, a group could be associated with such an email address.

    This email would be able to receive notifications when the group is granted access to a folder or assigned a task (another request I have seen).

    Important, this shared email address must not be associated with a system user account; otherwise a user seat would have to be used for the account, which isn't helpful.

  14. App sign in to specific folder

    I use an iPad app to manage PDFs of sheet music. I can sign into Box from the app, but I don't want to grant access to my ENTIRE BOX FOLDER TREE. I want to limit the app to read-only access to a specific folder and its descendants. Is there a way to do this? Can I set up a pseudo-login that accesses just a portion of my tree?

  15. Grant users with "Viewer Uploader" permissions, the ability to name subfolders they create.

    If a user is granted "Viewer Uploader" has edit permissions and can create subfolders inside of a folder they have permission, why don't the have the permissions to name that subfolder?

    I would like to see permissions changed to allow subfolder created by someone with "Viewer Uploader" permissions to be able to at least name the folder that person just created.

  16. Edit User Access permissions - View Options Needed

    It would be great to see the following enhancements made to the Edit User Access permissions section of the User page; specifically the 'Select folders this user can access' section:
    1) Allow for columns to be Expanded to see the entire folder name
    2) Include a sort option to these columns in order to sort by folder name, owner, file size, or Access level.

  17. No (additonal) Box license should be needed for external guests who have their own box domain

    Guest access should be useable with all Box subscriptions. No (additional) Box license should be necessary.

    Also if guests have their own box domain, no (additional) Box license should be necessary for both parties.

  18. Stop or modify instant suspension of new user email addresses on account setup, or give admins access to your blocklist

    When a new user account is set up, a confirmation email is automatically sent to the login address for the account. Currently, if this message is bounced, the user's email address is immediately placed on your block list.

    So - I create a new staff email account in 365, then use that email address to set up a Box account. Box immediately sends a confirmation email message - but 365 is having a slow day and the gateway hasn't yet caught up with accepting messages for that address. The confirmation message is bounced, and the user's email address is immediately…

  19. Need Permission level between Viewer/Uploader and Editor

    Viewer/Uploader is good, but, not good enough for all use cases; and Editor is too much--especially for external collaborators.

    External collaborators need to be able to fix problems they accidentally create (e.g. uploading the wrong file) or wanting to change the name of a folder when they realize that the current name may be confusing (who hasn't done that?).

    I agree with others' comments that there needs to be a permissions level between Viewer/Uploader and Editor. I can see at least four possible solutions:

    1) Allow collaborators to rename a folder/file. This could help with the accidental upload as well…

  20. Prevent paid accounts from inviting free accounts with the same corporate e-mail domain

    It'd be good If managed users can't invited free accounts who has the same e-mail domain or notify Admin immediately so Box users can comply with fair use policy.
