  1. Create and add Team Collections via Box Security Group

    We need the ability to create "Team Collections", essentially replicating the function of a Team Drive and provide this shortcut to Users on specific Teams. Given the nature of how Box files/folders are owned by a single User, it makes the function of a Team Drive almost impossible. I think of this as a Mapped Shared Drive in a File server.

    If it were possible to assign Team Collections via Box Security Group, I would be able to provision these Team Collections by an AD Attribute or AD SecGroup, via IdP Rule which maps to a Box Security Group. These…

  2. Box Drive - All files organization

    Box Drive does not currently allow for organization of your All Files folder.

    To reorganize or move folders on this screen, it actively moves the folders, which isn't always possible. Due to different staff members requiring access to only portions of each folder, we cannot bunch together certain folders that would otherwise belong together.

    For the all files screen, Box should implement a way to label and organize folders for your own personal box, that does not affect where the files are located and how they are shared. There is a way to do this with the collections list on…

  3. Manage collections folder through sub-collections

    I have too many Box folders shared with me and they all show up under "All Files". Collections is a good way to organize but I need to have a hierarchy/folder structure for Collections. Currently this can only be achieved through faking a folder structure through naming.

    example
    Project1
    Project1-subproject1
    Project1-subproject 2

    Being able to create sub collections would solve this.

    Currently my Box account is a huge mess of shared folders.

    Cheers,
    Matt

  5. Ability to change order of Favorite/Collection

    I would like to change the order of the content inside of Favorite/Collection freely so I can show the mostly used/viewed content on the top or organize it in the way that is easier to see.

  7. Sharing a Collection

    I understand that collections are meant to be a user specific setting, however, it would be great to have the ability to share a collection with a co-worker.

  8. Drag and Drop documents from collections to different folders

    Hey!

    I keep frequently used document templates in my collections, and it would be great to drag them from the left sidebar and drop them into the current folder I am viewing.

    If I want to copy a document template that is in my collections sidebar to a folder, I have to click into the document and then navigate to copy/move and then find the folder I was just in and select copy.

    I hope this makes sense, but happy to discuss it further.

  9. We want the update date item shown in the file list to be the date and time of the update.

    In the order in which they appear on the file list screen, there is an item called "Updated".
    We would like this to include the "Date and Time" of the update, not just the "Date" of the update.

    Also, the most recently updated items will be listed as "today" or "yesterday" as the date of the update, but we would like to see this listed with the official date.

    ファイル一覧画面で表示される順番に、「更新日」という項目があります。
    これには、更新日の「日付」だけではなく、更新日の「日時」も含めて記載してほしいと思います。

    また、最近更新されたものは、更新日が「今日」「昨日」と表示されますが、これは正式な日付で表示してほしいです。

  10. Improved the operation of the expand/reduce/delete buttons in My Collection./マイコレクションの展開・縮小・削除ボタンの誤操作改善

    The "V" button to expand My Collection is in the same position as the "X" button to delete it from the collection, which often leads to accidental deletion of links from My Collection.
    The "V" button to expand the collection is in the same position as the "X" button to delete it from the collection. If you click the "X" button, you will be prompted to confirm whether you want to delete the link or not.

    (In Japanese)
    マイコレクションを展開する「V」ボタンを、コレクションから削除する「×」ボタンが同じ位置にあるため、良く間違ってマイコレクションからリンクを消してしまう誤操作があります。
    「×」ではなくゴミ箱のマークに変更する。「×」をクリックした場合、削除するか確認画面を表示するなどの改定を希望します。

  11. Nested folders

    With the current collections capability, it looks like collections don’t have any organization within them. If you wanted to organize things into “folders” within your projects you’d have to title collections all at the top level with a naming that implied a hierarchy in order to map shared items into groupings one layer of organization down. Something like:

    Collections:
    Project1-folder1
    Project1-folder2
    Project1-folder3
    Project2-folder1

    I would have preferred to build an arbitrary folder tree and place shared items into specific places in my folder hierarchy.

    Obviously it would be more useful if this organization was available in Box Drive too.

  12. Have a personalized name for a shared file or folder

    It would be great if we could apply a tag, or rename a file or folder to something private to the user rather than what the original owner named the file.
    Today we can move those items into Collections to manage them with our own naming, but that doesn't resolve the issue of individual files or folders with ambiguous names.

    For example: I need to track certain files that a bunch of different teams are working on as part of "Company Project 1". I don't need to see everything the teams are doing, so they don't grant me access to…

  13. View Tags in Collections

    The organization heavily uses tags to help with search and sorting. We'd like to have our Tags show on files folders/files when looking at a Collection

  14. Better workflows for organizing content

    A colleague of mine works in an a department we'll call "DepartmentX" in a larger organization. Within other departments in the org they create a "DepartmentX" folder and share that to my colleage's box account.

    My colleague now has several "DepartmentX" folders and cannot at a glance see where they are from.

    In the initial view in Box and even on BoxDrive the "root" is polluted with other people's stuff and it is not possible to organize that into sub folders that are meaningful.

    If a user tries to drag a shared-folder into a folder they created Box attempts to…

  15. Rename items and custom order in Collections

    Collections are great! Now the possibility to customize the display order as well as to rename items without affecting the actual folder/file name would be great additions

    Thanks for the feedback. Currently, collections are sorted by 1) Favorites and 2) personal Collections in alphabetical order. We do not have plans currently to allow renaming items or sorting order.

  16. Sorting Collections.

    When using "Collections", I want to change the order of them. It would be nice if the user could freely sort the collections. This makes the box easier to use.

  17. collections available in modal windows

    Everywhere that uses a modal window should surface collections. For example in Teams adding a file to a chat to share, modal window appears. Show collections.

    Another example - When creating a workflow and then using the file picker modal window appears. Show collections.

    Collections should be everywhere, it is a killer feature that would get more use if you could rely on every interaction with box showing collections. (otherwise it makes using box more difficult remembering where content is)

  18. Search Box Collections

    We think it would be great to be able to create a Collection of specific folders. Then utilize a Collection only Search. It would be great to even include it as a Metadata option. Allowing users to search across collections via a Collection Specific Metadata Template.

  19. Collections items are not allowed to be dragged and dropped onto Trush.

    Users can drag and drop folders and files registered in "My Collections" and "Favorites" to "Trush".
    In this case, the folders and files will be moved to Trush.
    On the other hand, the user recognizes that this operation unregisters "My Collections" and "Favorites".
    This difference in perception caused operational problems.
    A user has moved a folder containing tens of thousands of files from "My Collection" to Trush, which has stopped the business of that person.
    My request is:
    Folders and files displayed in "My Collections" and "Favorites" are prohibited from being moved to Trush by drag and drop.

  20. Save a Search Query as a Collection

    When you search, have an option to save the search query as a Collection that then gets dynamically updated.

    Good use case: search query for "Folders Created Today" and save that as a Collection (or some other entity in Box).

    Other platforms do this with search already and users enjoy it!
