  1. Receive Box browser notifications while using Skype

    We would like Box to send Browser notifications in Skype whenever there is a comment directed to you (Facebook does it through Chrome).

    We want to be able to keep a conversation in Box (which is possible now with comments) AND easily notify the participants that are not in Box or have not checked email, but may be in Skype.

  2. Allow multiple Microsoft Tenant IDs for Office 365 to be associated with one EID

  3. Consistent Support Helpdesk Info Across Endpoints

    Currently, admins can control the Custom Support Information (Helpdesk contact info) that appears in the web app. However, admins cannot control the support information shown in all endpoints, like Box for Office.

    This will help large enterprises avoid confusion with their end users.

    We are not planning to change this at the moment. We will reconsider based on additional customer demand.

  4. Office Online Chat

    We want to use the Office Online Chat feature when concurrently editing a Microsoft document in Box leveraging Office Online.

    We want our users to use our commenting feature more instead. It’s not on strategy for us to integration with Office Online chatting features. Please file a Gap Request for web app so this in on their radar when prioritizing commenting features.

  5. Editing from the Preview Pane

    We would like an option to edit the file when in the preview pane.

  6. Auto transcribe associated Metadata into text as the file description upon import

    Our admin would like his metadata fields to be transcribed into basic text and added to the file in the description field.

    This will help admins and users understand more context about the file without having to look at each metadata field.

  7. New User-Level Field: "User Description" (Free Text)

    Other applications (like Slack) have a user-level free text field (similar to a User Description / Information field) where admins or users can enter free text to describe the user.

    This is not currently planned. We will revisit this with additional use case data and customer requests.

  8. Ability to send Confirmation Link to managed user

    Admin would like the ability back to send a confirmation link to managed users. Not reset password like this feature was changed to.

    It is inconvenient to have to contact User Services in order to have this email sent to users.

    We have APIs available to select which user to transfer content to. We do not hold any hierarchical data to determine which user is managed by which other user.

  11. Multi attribute check during SSO login flow

    We do not currently have a mail Exchange server (we use 3rd party for email). Therefore our ADFS mail address attribute is "informational only" and can be changed by local admins or end users. We cannot rely on this attribute for securely logging into Box via SSO.

    WE propose Box change the SSO login flow to have the ability to check for multiple claims, i.e. the existing mail attribute AND another (non-writable) AD attribute which we can trust.

    We have one AD but delegate management of users to local teams and manage hundreds of sub-companies (around 600 email domains).

    These…

  12. Login with Facebook or Google on the Web App

    When a free user initially creates their Box account, they would be given the option in their profile settings to link to their Facebook or Google login credentials.

  14. Localization optional for login and SSO "Continue" page

    We are in Denmark, but our official company language is English and we would like to enforce that settings.

    Hi there,
    thanks for bringing this up!

    Box login page respects one’s browser preferred language so changing your browser preferred language to English should solve the problem.

    As for the SSO “Continue” page, I would recommend you contact your SSO provider and check if there’s a way to always show it in English.

    Thank you!

  15. Legal Hold - Cold storage

    This is not planned at the moment due to the resource-intensive request against our other roadmap priorities. I appreciate this use case and your sharing this feedback.

  16. Add flexibility to edit an existing legal hold

    We would like to be able to adjust the date of the legal hold or be able to only extract a subset of content within the time period established.

  18. Enhance Word Previews

    MS viewer in Box in iOS - specifically the Word viewer. It used to only show the top navigation bar when you long pressed the screen even on the first and last page.

    Now the nav bars do not go away on those 2 pages. For docs with very narrow margins at top and bottom and they are only 1 or 2 pages long.

  19. Enable users/developers to set Content-Type header on file download

    A user requests you treat .PKPass files with a different Content-Type header on download so the iPhone can handle it properly and add it to the user's Passbook.

    However, other users would like to be able to influence/set the Content-Type header when initiating a download.

    It would be helpful for folks who are trying to have greater control over the user experience, particularly when there is no baked in support for every file type.

    We would like to be able to see Access Stats with in the Box for iOS or the Android application. While this is possible from the web client the iOS app currently does not allow to view access stats.
