  1. Ability to start a workflow from the "New +" section

    My customer would like to trigger a workflow that copies a folder (and subfolders) IN the folder where it is created.

    Customer use case:

    A financial services company needs to create a deal folder within the company folder a fund team is working from. Instead of going to the deal folder template to copy it into the specific company folder, they would like to trigger the workflow to copy the deal folder template to the company specific folder with one click and from the company folder.

    This would be similar to using a manual trigger but having a dynamic variable…

  2. Ability to save email addresses for future use

    We are a law firm and send multiple documents to clients to sign over the course of the case. It would be nice to have the option to save an email address/client name so that it would auto-populate the next time you entered that client name.

  9. box sync ignore files

    Are you kindly considering adding a feature to skip / ignore certain paths (directories, files) stored on local machine from syncing? Some examples of situations where inability to exclude files from backup causes undesired issues: 1) There are programs which store temporary files among synced folders. These temporary files frequently change and are deleted on program exit, which results into frequent unnecessary synchronization and deletion of files in cloud, therefore waste of computing resources and bandwidth. 2) Specific program creates empty file "running" to indicate it's in running state. Box Sync does not sync empty file but warns user each…

  10. Comments with Links

    It would be ideal if links to Box content that are pasted into comments would default to open in a new browser tab, not replacing the current view of workflow needed while reading other comments.

  11. Relay Folder Workflow - add naming options

    Please add an option to use the name of the "manually" created main folder(that starts the relay workflow) as a prefix/suffix for the subfolders created automatically by relay.

  12. Add a home to the web UI

    Add Home to the menu in the Web UI above All Files and allow it to be the default we a user first logs in. It should be associated with what they set their home page to be (i.e. Favorites, Collections, etc.). When using a closed folder structure where users can't create files and folders on the All Files page it makes no sense to take them to this page by default because natural thought would be that they should be able to create on this page not need to navigate to another page.

  13. Provide ability to deploy custom code

    Provide the ability to deploy Box-related backend and front-end code using tier-1 Box SDKs and Box UI Elements respectively. This would allow customer-specific business logic to be created and to expose those capabilities as a custom endpoint without needed to deploy the cost to 3rd-party platform such as Heroku, AWS, Azure, or GCP. This would also allow external applications to invoke the use case-specific endpoints to tie into external business processes.

  14. Drag to re-order lists and tables in Box Notes

    I use lists in Box Notes quite frequently for lists of tasks or priorities. After entering the list items, I often wish to reorder the items. If you could add a simple drag to re-order list items behavior, lists would be a far more useful capability within notes.

    This same drag to re-order functionality would also be very useful in tables within Box Notes

    The best implementation that I have seen is in the OSX notes app, where a faint grabber icon appears next to the row and column of a table that you are editing. You can re-order rows…

  16. To be able to TAG documents using keyboard shortcut

    I would like to be able to assign shortcuts to functions in box both in the dashboard view and in the document review. Tagging a document takes too many steps and too many mouse clicks to do which defeats the purpose of using tags. A TAG icon on the right side menu along with the metadata icon would also be nice to have to be able to TAG documents faster.

  17. Allow a Custom Size for Chunked Uploads

    Currently, each part should have exactly the size that was returned from post-files-upload-sessions (Link: https://developer.box.com/reference/post-files-upload-sessions/) API call in Upload session object (Link: https://developer.box.com/reference/resources/upload-session/#param-part_size)

    Depending on a user's network configuration, allowing a user to determine the specific part size for chunked uploads can allow them more control in completing these uploads quicker, and preventing failures based on network restrictions they may possibly have in place.

  18. Warning before deleting files or folders

    Before deleting files and folders, there should be a warning, so you don't accidentally delete a file or folder you didn't mean to.

  19. Remove the user account assigned to Task from Relay Workflow Template when publishing it

    When we create the workflow template to publish it company-wide from the existing workflow, the user account assigned to the task defined in the workflow are maintained in the template.

    In the current specification of Box Relay, the workflow invites the task assignee if he/she doesn't have access to the contents related to the task.

    Template is intended to be used by company-wide Box user, so if the task assignee is remained in the template and if the template user doesn't remove it when creating workflow from template, this original task assignee will be invited and given access.

    This leads…

  20. Copy or Duplicate existing groups

    Would appreciate the ability to create copies of existing Groups, mainly for its members - not so much the permissions given to that group.

    My use case: We've got an "ALL" group that has access to numerous folders. There is one user that does not want access to one of those folders. So I'd like to be able to copy the "ALL" group and remove that user, rather than re-create our "ALL" group which has a lot of members.

    There also is no good way to bulk add members to a group. Typing each person is cumbersome, it'd also be…
