  1. whitelist external users for File Request Link

    In business you frequently work with external partners or agencies and need to have the ability for those entities to manage a File Request Link. Limiting the File Request Link to just managed users limits the collaboration ability of the business needs.

  2. Specific Access to subfolders in the same Folder

    Is it possible to give to users view permission only to specific subfolders within a folder? Example: I want to upload to a master folder 5 subfolders to our daughter company partners and I want to make sure that the 3 subfolders out of the 5 of them will be viewed only from their bosses. This flexibility helps you to avoid creating 2 different folders for the same Task-Subject.

  4. Use box groups to assign co-admin roles

    We need to be able to assign co-admin roles to Box group and have these groups sync with our active directory.

  5. Box settings fail to provide needed permissions for those who upload data.

    Box settings (limitations) in connection with Anderson Business Advisors are very frustrating. Uploader's should be able to edit what they upload. I have complained about this for two years. The impact is that garbage is scattered all over the site because I can't property rename or reposition files. This causes further confusion and extra communications with Anderson employees. I'm becoming incredulous about this - it seems like such a simple expectation to be able to rename a folder, or move a simply file into a folder after it has been uploaded. Please provide this simply capability ASAP.

  6. Automatically generated user report emails

    I'd like to be able to automatically generate a user report email to an admin after each user logs out, be able to see activity on the files they've been given access to.

  7. Keep Cost Center Field populated when user invited as a Managed user

    If creating an account and you have to send the user an Invite to come over as a managed user, the Cost Center field (If filled out) will not stay after the user accepts the invite. Forcing you to have to go back and re-add info you may have already included.

    I would request that if the Cost Center field is populated on a user creation, that it remain after an invited user accepts their invite to stop double work.

  8. Bulk invitation

    We have multiple clients that we give access to several folders. I'd like to be able to send a single collaboration invitation, rather than inundating their mail with multiple invitations.

  9. Need to be able to view group members before adding to a folder

    Would be great to be able to see members of a group prior to adding them to a folder. At the moment, even those groups which are listed as being viewable by anyone in the company can't be viewed until AFTER they are added to a folder, unless someone is a group admin. It means that either someone has to contact an admin to be sure they have the right group, or they have to add the group and then check right away to make sure they added the right one.

  10. Add second Box user name filed

    There is First and Last name filed available now when Admin create Box user. When customer integrated with SSO in Japanese, active directory name will be used. However, some Box user will communicate with oversea members, they like to use English name, not Japanese name which synced with Active Directory. So, please add additional filed for user name.

  11. Ability to have guest accounts

    We'd like to have guest Box account for external vendors. Vendors are not allowed to create free Box accounts by their policy. In order to collaborate with external vendors, we'd like to have guest Box account for our vendors.

  12. Eliminate confirmation email for manually created or provisioned accounts

    We feel that the confirmation email step should not be utilized with accounts that are manually created in the portal or that are auto provisioned from AD. When we create a new account, there is a "delay" with the new email address being propagated and established in our third-party cloud-based email security system. This causes the new email to be added to the hard bounce list at Box due to the email address not being valid (yet). We understand the need for a confirmation email when it comes to an individual user signing up, but if an account is created…

  13. Allow users to see who the file owner is

    If a user does not have access to a file, Box politely reports: "This shared file or folder link has been removed or is unavailable to you." That's fair! How does one know whom to contact regarding access? Would it be feasible and acceptable to let us know who the owner is? A link to "E-mail Owner" or "Request Access?"

  14. Enable account upgrades without needing to have 3 members

    I currently have a Personal Pro account, and I'd like to upgrade to get more storage. It seems, however, that all upgrade options involve at least 3 users. I am but one. As much as I'd like to clone myself sometimes, it's just not practical (or, frankly, ethical...but that's another story).

    Can we make a way to upgrade a 1-person account without having to pay for two unnecessary users?

    If not, you're essentially throwing up a middle finger to solo practitioners, which isn't very nice.

  15. Ability to search by "co-owner" or "editor", I see we can "sort by owners" but that doesn't do any good for users.

    We have detailers come in all the time we would like to be able to sort at the "All Folder" zone by "co-owner" or "editor" to ensure detailer gets put in all applicable folders. I see sort by "owner" but no one is that high in the group. the highest we're at is "co-owner" . the sorting feature would allow us to find, add and remove person(s) from folder(s) without having to open every folder and sort through all the users.

  16. Changing Name in Profile

    Right now, when I went to go change my name as it's shown in Box, I received an error message that said "Your name is invalid."

    Is there another prompt we can use to not allow users to change their name? How do users update so that their correct name is shown in their profile for their collaborators?

  18. sort colaborators list attached to a folder by their last name

    As a teacher I add students to my folder as collaborators. If I want to make sure they are all in, I read my enrolment which is in sensible alphabetical order and have to check each name presence in "share list" in Box which is unsorted. This algorithm is O(n^2). If Box "shared list was sorted" it would be O(2*n). For 20 students that is difference between 400 and 40 compares. --thank you [add new category-- Usability]

  19. Group membership retained when an account is deactivated

    We have scenarios where user accounts are suspended for a period of time e.g while a person is on extended leave. The business process is to disable the account in Active Directory which in turn deactivates the account in our SSO provider which also sets the account as Inactive in Box.

    When the account is reactivated the person retains access to all the folders they were collaborating in but they lose membership to all Box groups and need to be re-added

    We've also had incidents where accounts have mistakenly been deactivated resulting in the same issue

    Generally we prefer to…

  20. Asign tasks in Office documents (Word, Powerpoint...)

    I'm new to BOX (coming off business based on Google Platform) and have a few tips that would be awesome to have.

    This is about collaborating better in teams and working on the document together.

    Is there a chance to higlight a text in the Word/ Powerpoint - and asign that highlighted part to a team member? So on 1 slide I could potentially asign parts to different people to work on...

    Thank you, Michael
