  1. Accurate display of number of files

    Fixed the problem of inconsistent number of files

    Inconsistencies in the number of files can occur when large amounts of data are owned or moved for business purposes.
    There is a workaround for this in the support page, but it does not work in some cases.
    Even if we can confirm the exact number of items in the report, the size may differ due to data inconsistencies.
    We feel that it is inconvenient for business use to not be able to accurately grasp the number of data.
    Please fix the inconsistency of the number of files.

  2. Transfer Workflow Ownership (not sending it as a template but as a workflow)

    Recently the workflow ownership transfer has been released.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/4402945686291-Transferring-Your-Workflow-to-Another-User

    However, this is to make the template of the workflow that is needed to be transferred.

    There is a need to transfer the actual workflow for below reasons:

    1. the new owner needs to check the past workflow activity but with the template it is not possible
    2. since it is a template, the new owner still needs to make the workflow

    Thank you for your consideration.

    We definitely want to address this use case (new owner sees past workflow activity) but do not have plans to address it in the near term. We will update when we have a firmer idea of when this can be tackled.

  3. Disable expiration period change for public shared links only

    Currently it is possible to set up automatic expiration period for public shared links in Admin Console, which is an important security feature. However, users can extend the expiration period in Shared Link Settings. It would be more secure to disable expiration period extension for public shared links by users, while allowing them to change expiration periods for other types of shared links (company or collaborators only)

  4. Unique domain name for Box Sign

    To minimize Box Sign being blocked by customers who block app.box.com, Box Sign should have its own unique domain name. Example, sign.box.com.

  5. Incorporate Box Sign in Box Relay

    Including the ability to ask for signatures with Box Sign as an action on Relay would be useful, just as being able to assign a task which is available at the moment. This is vital especially in the case of approvals that need to be legally valid.

  6. Box Sign - Add Setting to Require Login

    Have option to require login for users to complete a Sign. Allow for same functionality for a user to have some level (even free) of Box, very similar to File Request.

  7. Box Sign Font for Japanese

    Currently there is only one font available when signing in Japanese.
    It would be great if there are more font options in Japanese as well.

  8. Need more input field types and options for Box Sign

    Requested Box Sign Fields: Drop-down boxes, radio buttons, attachments

    Requested Options: Conditional fields, KBA authentication, bulk sign, embedded form links

    We need more fields and options to be able to adopt Box Sign fully like the current major eSign providers have.

  9. Relay: Involve external Users to a manual workflow as "not-owner" of the folder/file

    Hi,

    i discribe a situation:
    The Admin is the owner of all folders/files, directors has co-owner-rights and all employees are editors. It is similarly discribed in "Folder Structure Best Practices" under "Business Unit Drive"
    Now we invite some external users... not only the owner can invite them.
    Then we create some relays for specific folder, especially some manual ones, assign a task and set the Assignee to "Specify at startup"...not only the owner can do this.
    Last but not least we start the manual workflow and choose as Assignee an external user... but wait...ONLY the owner of the folder (1…

  10. Box Sign Template Edit Underlying Document

    My customers who use DocuSign today are accustomed to applying a Signature template to a document. For example, I have a contract I am going to make edits to the language of the contract, the date, the dollar amount, etc. and then apply a signature template and send it off.
    In Box today, I've found that you can either use a template (but the underlying document cannot be changed) or you can utilize template tags via API (which are handy, but I imagine my less tech savvy clients would find them challenging to set up).

  11. Box Sign: add option to require recipient 2FA on template definition

    Add the option to define that 2FA is required for some recipients (signers), on template definition itself.
    That way, in combination with template locking admin can enforce users to set it while using the template

  13. Allow for multiple primary admins

    There are several functions within the Admin Console that are only accessible to the primary admin. Setting up SSO for example requires the primary admin, and co-admins are unable to integrate with SSO. In many environments there will not be a single administrator with privileged access across multiple systems, which means the primary admin role will need to be assigned and re-assigned multiple times to perform necessary tasks.

    To promote a secure environment where tasks may need to be performed by multiple administrators, I would request either 1) admin console allow for multiple users in the primary admin role, or…

  14. Require PIV/CAC card authentication upon signing

    The US government relies upon PIV/CAC card authentication for existing digital signature validation. This is a key requirement for usage within this market segment.

  15. Ability for users to set sorting preference

    Box is not longer default showing files by file name. This requires resorting of files every time I open a folder, which is hundred of times a day.

    Please enable users to set the default sorting order for folders or restore the prior defaults

  16. Ability to change the Signed Date format

    Currently the date field is automatically filled based on the signer's PC device language.
    When the language is set in Japanese, the date will be written in Japanese but when it is set in English, the date will be written in English.
    It would be great if we can set the language/format of the date to be the same when there is multiple signers with different language setting.

  17. Enable spell check in Annotation comments

    Annotation comment pop up windows do not currently have a spell check function. Comments can be modified under the activity section, but spell check doesn't work there either.

  20. Home & End Keyboard Button Support

    Hello,

    The home & end buttons in box notes move the view to the beginning/end of the document, where the expectation precedent that other text editors have set is that the cursor moves to the beginning and end of the line.

    If this is possible, it would be an amazing feature so that I can interoperate between my usual text editors (VS Code, IntelliJ, etc) and box notes without having to readjust my keyboarding habits.
