    It would be great to get more insight into how you are thinking about this. For example:

    - Who would revalidates the user?
    - Does your company have an idea on how they’d like to revalidate users?
    - How often?
    - What is the current workaround (if any)?
    - How does this impact your use of Box today?

  2. Individualized shared links

    We'd like to be able to send customized links to specific individuals (e.g. company.box.com/JohnDoe) to know, even though they'd normally show as "Someone has Viewed your file", that it can be tracked back to being the particular person from that link.

    We'd ideally like to send that same file to 5 different prospects with 5 customized links

    Great suggestion. This is not currently prioritized since it’s a narrower use case compared to the other items on our roadmap.

  3. Custom Terms of Service: Add the 'Preview' Link/Option Again

    In the Admin Console redesign, Box deprecated the 'Preview' option within the Custom Terms of Service settings.

    This request is to bring that functionality back.

    RATIONALE: Box supports adding HTML into the Terms of Service text, and there's no way (without a Preview link) to validate that the HTML renders correctly.

    Good suggestion! This doesn’t rank high enough on our list of priorities, but we will re-evaluate with additional user demand.

  4. Adding cc of invitation sender to Folder Invitation Emails

    Request: Add the folder invitation sender as a cc to all folder invitation emails

    Rationale: Primary need to ensure recipient is aware of the sending email which generally denotes the company. Right now, it only has the sender's first and last name which is highly arbitrary in many scenarios in inviting external users.

  6. Save-As limits

    Scenario:
    Using Save As to convert a .csv to excel file.

    When saving to my local drive (even though it is in a Box Sync folder) I maintain the programmatic capability to save the file as a different file type.

    When saving to Box (even though it is the same Box Operations folder) I lose the programmatic capability to save the file as a different file type.

    I do file conversion in excel multiple times a week.

    We would like to see additional detail and use cases before considering this for implementation.

  8. Provide support SentinelOne as an antivirus on Mac (already supported on Windows).

    We are currently using SentinelOne as our corporate antivirus. Device Trust will recognize this as an Anti-virus when Box is used on Windows. However, Device Trust will not recognize the Mac version of the same software.

    For Windows, we can support any AV that Microsoft detects in Windows Security Center, which includes SentinelOne.

    For Mac, developing checks for each vendor is a separate effort where we need to both discover a way to detect if a vendor is being used and also re-test and maintain this code.

    Due to the resource-intensive nature, we will not be adding SentinelOne in the near future.

  9. Add column to the User Activity Report that shows the full file path for any file or folder activity

    Currently, it only shows a column called "Contained in Folder" which is not enough for most investigations.

    This is a resource-intensive request. We will reconsider with additional demand.

  11. Button for promoting secondary alias to primary address from Admin Console manage user view.

    Admin would like a quick way to promote secondary address without having to remotely login as user from Admin Console.

    This request is not on the priority list as admins have an easy workaround.

    This is an edge case request. We will reconsider if there is additional demand.

  13. EMM Multi-Window Support for iPad

    I need to be able to open multiple documents and easily switch between them with tabs (like iOS Safari perhaps) and I often need to display two documents side by side or have two views of the same document.

    During our investigation we determined that this flow was not a highly desired capability for how users currently want to work in Box. It would also require a shift in how our application was build.

  14. Control User Names

    Prevent users to enter in their own custom usernames

  20. Folder Level App Integration in Developer Console

    Is there any plan to allow developers to give folder access to Web App integrations without having to request a special permission from Box?

    In the current process, Developers can enable the context menu for folders to present integration features, but to do so they must contact Box first. "Send a request to Box for pre-approval to build a folder-level integration."

    https://docs.box.com/docs/box-web-application-integrations#section-step-4-select-an-integration-from-the-more-actions-dropdown

    We would like the ability to add folder level integrations via the Developer Console without having to contact Box Support.
