  2. Access Stats: Ability to export faster at scale

    Exporting Access Stats report some times take long time to get generated, especially many reports are requested at the same time. We would like the Access Stats export be generated faster at scale.

  4. Allow users to share built workflows

    Allow workflow builders to share their workflows with each other. Currently workflows need to be rebuilt by each user whereas it would save a lot of time to be able to share these workflows that have already been built.

  5. Update "Not Part of Company" Text to Look Like a Button

    When you share a folder or document with a client who is not a part of your organization they receive an email, they then create a login, they are then sent to a page that says "Company uses your network username and password to login to Box. Continue to login to Box through your network." There is then a Continue button and then text that read "Not part of Company" All 66 of my clients have clicked on the button and not on the text because the text does not look click-able. It would be fantastic if that text could…

  6. Bring back pagination

    Please bring back pagination! I work with thousands of files and continuous scrolling makes it much harder to search for the last file I was working on. Pagination allows me to view a certain number of files on a page which helps so much when working with thousands of files of data.

  7. Box Drive icon size

    Would like for the Box Drive icons to be bigger again. On the latest version of Box Drive 2.16, they are smaller and that makes it harder for them to determine whether or not files are locked.

  8. Allow editing of annotations

    Sometimes I want to change the comment I left with an annotation. But the only option I get is to delete the annotation. So I'm forced to copy the previous text, delete the old annotation, and create a new one. That's annoying!

  9. Notification when someone is editing a file

    Since we don't have an option to check-in/check-out of files, can you add a feature like Dropbox's badge which alerts a user when someone else is editing a file so we prevent any simultaneous version history/editing issues?

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re actively researching in this area right now, so I’d love to collect any additional feedback you might have on use cases. For example: are you primarily looking for this notification on Preview? The files list? And in which applications – Web? Box Drive? Box mobile applications?

    Any additional information you provide will be much appreciated.

  10. Copy All Folder Settings when copying a Folder

    When copying a folder, all folder settings should be copied over as well (or have the option to do so). As is, some settings do copy over while others don't. For example:

    Can Copy: Restrict Collaboration to within ETF, Disable Commenting, Shared Link Access, Watermarking, Uploading (Overwrite files) and Email notifications
    Won't Copy: Only Folder owners and co-owners can send collab invites, Hide Collaborators, Allow Uploads to this folder

    This would be especially useful when copying a template folder with a folder structure that needs the same settings when copied for a new project/customer/etc.

  11. Box Drive Integration with Windows Information Protection

    Some users want to protect all or part of the folders on Box Drive with Windows Information Protection (WIP) as a corporate area, but Box Drive do not currently have direct integration.
    So, they want to be able to cooperate Box Drive and WIP.

  12. Collaborator Clean Up

    Collaborator Clean Up - In Account Settings / Collaborators, we want to add the ability to click on any collaborator and see what files and folders they have access to. When looking at the list, have a button available to remove them from specific folders as needed. This will be especially helpful when performing a CBN, Audit or Digital Clean up.

  13. The "File Request" function available not only to the managed users but also to external users.

    We'd like to see the "File Request" function available not only to the managed users but also to external users.
    If possible, we'd like this setting to be able to be done by folder from "Folder Settings".

    We are confident that this feature will expand the use of Box even further.

    「ファイルリクエスト」機能を管理対象ユーザーだけでなく、外部ユーザーも利用できるように利用可否の選択肢を広げて欲しい。
    可能であれば、この設定は「フォルダ設定」からフォルダ単位で行えるようにして欲しい。

    この機能があればBoxの利用の幅がさらに広がると思います。

  14. We want the update date item shown in the file list to be the date and time of the update.

    In the order in which they appear on the file list screen, there is an item called "Updated".
    We would like this to include the "Date and Time" of the update, not just the "Date" of the update.

    Also, the most recently updated items will be listed as "today" or "yesterday" as the date of the update, but we would like to see this listed with the official date.

    ファイル一覧画面で表示される順番に、「更新日」という項目があります。
    これには、更新日の「日付」だけではなく、更新日の「日時」も含めて記載してほしいと思います。

    また、最近更新されたものは、更新日が「今日」「昨日」と表示されますが、これは正式な日付で表示してほしいです。

  15. Rename items and custom order in Collections

    Collections are great! Now the possibility to customize the display order as well as to rename items without affecting the actual folder/file name would be great additions

    Thanks for the feedback. Currently, collections are sorted by 1) Favorites and 2) personal Collections in alphabetical order. We do not have plans currently to allow renaming items or sorting order.

  16. Changes to workflow builder functionality

    Create changes to workflow builder functionality:
    1. Allow folder Editors to be able to build workflows (we have very few co-admins)
    2. Allow the workflow builder to specify who is assigning the task (or make it generic.) Just because Bob builds the workflow doesn't mean his name should be on the assigning task.

  17. Box/MS Teams integration - prevent native file sharing

    Need to add an explanation to the webpage on integrating the Box app with MS Teams:

    Box file sharing is not practical in Teams if users are still able to attach files using the built-in Sharepoint capabilities of Teams. Box needs to explain how to turn off the native file sharing in Teams, thereby forcing users to use Box.

    Apparently, there is a way to turn off the ability for teams to create SP doc libraries.

  18. Open shared links in Windows Explorer

    It would be great having the option for shared links to be opened in the Windows Explorer directly (if Box Drive / Box Sync is installed). Today, when a shared link is clicked, e.g. on Slack, it opens in the web browser, adding complexity to the workflow (e.g. having to log in, limited editing functionality, etc.). Most of our team today revert to clicking the shared link just to identify the location of the file in the browser, then finding and opening the file manually on Box Drive.

  19. User activity report

    In the activity report, exporting Collaboration Approval gives the following output:


    1. Invite external users to the "folder" of your company tenant.
      Only the folders invited to "Processed Items" are displayed.


    2. Invite external users to the "file" of your company tenant
      The folder path is displayed in "Processing item", but the file name and file ID of the invitation file are not displayed.


    This specification confuses the user and is not suitable for following the path to the invite folder.
    Please unify "Folder path", "Folder/file name" and "Folder/file ID" as output results.

  20. Box Notes Export or Download to Common Formats

    It would be great if Box Notes supported a simple way to Download/Export into non-Box format like plain text, html, markdown, rtf, or Word. I am hesitant to leverage Box Notes until this feature is present.
