    This change would also require an admin console change which would add additional overhead. It is not one we are considering at this time.

  3. Allow Group Admins make a GET call for enterprise users

    Group Admins are able to use the webapp UI to add managed users to a group. The UI allows them to start typing a username or email address and will return any results that match. If a Group Admin wants to add a member to a group via the API, they need to know a user's user ID. However, GET calls to https://api.box.com/2.0/users?filter_term=email@domain.com by a Group Admin fail with a 403 error. The same call made by a Co-Admin succeeds.

    Thanks for your feedback. We’re currently working on improving some of the existing product notification emails in the short and medium term. We will take your feedback into account as we review our overall notification strategy.

    Not currently planned for our existing roadmap. We’ll reconsider when there’s more demand.

  7. Adding "auto_sync_email_aliases" as name of service when an SSO provider passes a new primary or secondary email.

    Currently admin reports show the events as taken by the user. This is very misleading to an admin reading the logs, especially when the enterprise disallows users to update their primary email.

  9. Expose Box Server Time for setting JWT exp claim within expected values

    Currently, there are a few different places that developers can use to sync the time of their requests which can lead to some confusion/issues with properly setting the exp claim when generating a JWT assertion.

    For example, pool.ntp.org offers up a time that's ~25 seconds ahead of epochconverter.com (where support currently suggests that folks sync their time from).

    Exposing the "current timestamp" somehow, or syncing up with a framework that allows users to be in sync with Box time will allow for fewer questions/issues with the JWT claims process.

  12. Ignore unreadable files in Box Sync.

    The users environment causes Excel to create unreadable temporary files. Box Sync will not sync temporary files. However, not being able to read the file causes Box Sync to throw and error and quit. The user would prefer Box Sync to ignore unreadable files.

  13. 'Remove Formatting' / 'Clear Formatting' Option

    Remove formatting entirely when a user first copy/paste something into Box Notes. Whenever I have to paste blocks of text into Notes, I first copy to a text editor, then select all and c/p from there.

    The other option is a button in the header for "remove formatting." Both would be nice but the copy/paste one is way more inconvenient.

    We recommend the ‘Paste and match style’ command found in most browsers and our new desktop app.

  14. Sync with lower than edit permissions

  15. Automatic warning when generating "people with link" shared link

    Generating a shared link with "people with link" settings is very easy for end users, to the point where they might not realize the degree to which they open that content up to hard-to-mitigate, external distribution. An automatic warning, when an end user selects" people with link," is required per company security policy.

    We understand the concern and believe the proper way to implement this is to either allow the admins to default shared links to “people in my company” and/or when a user selects “people with link” and admin can select a setting to pop up a warning message. We wouldn’t want to implement this by default to all customers since this is adding friction to sharing which will have a negative effect on that action.

  16. iOS Preview SDK should provide listeners for events like the Content Preview UI kit.

    The events for the JS Content Preview UI kit can be found here, https://developer.box.com/docs/file-types-events. It would be beneficial to have similar events to have emitters within the iOS preview SDK.
