  1. 3D/CAD File preview zoom function

    <improvement>
    Improve zoom/enlargement in 3D file preview function

    With the current 3D file preview function of Box, the display of the 3D model is small, and there is a limit to the distance that can be brought close to the 3D model even when zooming, so I would like to improve.

    <Use case>
    - BIM/CIM-based 3D CAD data can be easily displayed on a browser, which can be expected to improve communication with relevant parties and productivity.
    - The viewer of a CAD maker has high performance and high affinity with CAD data, but it has a large burden such…

  2. I would like to add attachments (with shared links) in Outlook on the Web and make the attachment location at the top of the email body.

    When you add an attachment (with a shared link) in Outlook on the Web, it is attached at the bottom of the thread if the text field is expanded.
    However, it is difficult to see the attachment at the bottom of the thread, so please change the setting so that the attachment is added to the top of the email every time. (or add a feature).

    With the current specification, attachments are displayed at the bottom of the message, especially when the body of the message is long, so the recipient may not notice the attachment.

  3. Increase size of left-side menu on Home screen

    The left-side menu on the Home screen is too narrow and cuts off the names of folders/files saved under My Collections/Favorites.

    Users should be able to set whatever width is needed for the menu.

  4. Request "yml" for preview

    "yml" is not supported as text preview while "yaml" is available. It is major extension as YAML file and supporting it will help BOX usability. Hoping quiet soon implementation.

  5. Microsoft Teams and Box Notes integration

    Being able to view Box note files without login required within the Microsoft Teams desktop platform. Ideally you would also be able to edit Box notes within the MT platform or have a link that opens the note up in your Box notes desktop so you can easily find and edit the document through MT, rather than open up Box online or Box notes to dig around and find the note.

    Anyone else find the process a bit cumbersome?

  6. When using BoxDrive, sometimes the folder or file actually exists, but the message "This folder is empty" is displayed.

    When using BoxDrive, sometimes the folder or file actually exists, but the message "This folder is empty" is displayed.
    When opening a folder, I want you to incorporate the logic to judge whether it is empty and display "This folder is empty" or "Searching". If it says it's empty, you'll be checking Box.com. If it is displayed that it is being searched, a simple refresh is enough, such as transitioning to one parent folder and returning..

  7. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  8. Requests regarding Box For Teams V2

    I would like to use the Box For Teams V2 integration, but the following functions are bottlenecks and cannot be used.

    Therefore, I want to be able to turn off only the following functions in the tenant settings.
     
     ・Automatic creation of Box folders for teams/channels
     ・Automatic mapping of user permissions

    In most cases, Japanese companies use a controlled system in which the administrator owns the items.

    However, if folders are automatically created or permissions are automatically attached with the Box For Teams V2 integration, control cannot be taken, so we requested this.

  9. Allow Marking Folders as "Move Locked" To Prevent Users From Moving Certain Folders Regardless Of Permissions

    Our admins are constantly dealing with users who accidentally drag and drop folders into other folders. This can have a big impact across our org, especially when a high level folder that's shared across the company is moved. Here's a common use case:

    We have a top level Projects folder. That folder contains a subfolder for every organization we do business with. Those Organization folders then contain subfolders for individual projects. We'd like to be able to mark the Organization level folders as Move Locked so that our users don't accidentally move folders from one Organization into another. This happens…

  10. Add "ent" to the URL of the shared link

    Please add "ent" to the URL of the shared link.

    Currently, "ent" is not appended to the URLs of shared links issued by tenants who have enabled the Box Verified Enterprise feature.

    In certain countries and regions, access to "box.com" may not be possible.
    One effective way to get around this is to access Box from a URL with "ent.box.com".

    When a shared link is issued by a BVE tenant, if the URL has "ent" attached to it, there will be fewer actions by the customer beyond that point, making the interaction smoother.

    (日本語)
    共有リンクのURLに「ent」を付加してください。

    現在、Boxベリファイド Enterprise機能を有効にしたテナントにおいて、発行した共有リンクのURLに「ent」が付加されません。

    特定の国や地域では「box.com」へのアクセスができない場合があります。
    これを回避するための有効な手段として「ent.box.com」がついたURLからBoxにアクセスするというのがあります。

    BVEのテナントで共有リンクを発行した際にURLに「ent」が付いた場合、その先のお客様によるアクションが減るため、やり取りがスムーズになります。

  11. I want the ability to add comments to the version history

    Now in the version history you will find the version number (for example: V1,V2...) is currently listed in the version history, the version number (for example: V1, V2...).
    We check the contents of V1, V2... in the preview and restore the version.

    However, as the number of versions increases, it is difficult to find the exact version you need, so please add the ability to add a simple note in addition to the version number.

    【日本語】------------------------------------------------------------
    現在バージョン履歴では、バージョンナンバー(for example:V1,V2...)が記載されています。
    私たちは、V1、V2...の内容をプレビューで都度確認し、バージョンを復元しています。

    しかし、バージョン数が多くなってくると、必要なバージョンを的確に見つけるのは難しいため、バージョン番号のほかに簡易なメモを併記できる機能を追加してください。

  12. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  13. google shared drive

    Allow Google Drive "Shared drives" content to be copied directly to the integrated Box extension in Gsuite. Currently, this is only available from "My Drive". The work around is to copy "Shared drives" content to "My Drive" (which in itself is awkward, because only files, and not folders, can be copied directly in the cloud), and then copy content from "My Drive" to Box.

    It would be great if we can view all notifications in one webpage the same as you can do with tasks instead of just a drop down window.

  15. Block file extensions lists in Shield malware detection

    As part of Governance it is possible to move certain file types to a Quarantine folder. This is useful for a lot of ransomwares, as they change the extension of files.

    Currently this "old" functionality has not yet been moved to Shield. Shield does have a malware detection, which uses threat detection technology. We would like to have the ability to extend this with a list of known extensions.

  16. Request to add the file type "yml" for yaml file to preview

    Currently, BOX preview supports the file type "yaml", but file type "yml" is not supported. The 3 characters file extension (it is same as file type) is general especially Windows environment, so I want to support the "yml" file on preview.

  17. Playback Speed on Mobile for Videos

    I would like to play video contents with double speed in the mobile app's preview mode.
    Currently you can change the speed of the video on web but it is not possible on mobile.
    It would be great if you can add the playback speed (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) on mobile too.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  18. cache Box Drive

    Refresh function in Box Drive

    Currently, it is necessary to logout/login to clear the cache and errors, but this is troublesome.
    I would like to be able to do this with the touch of a button.
    This is expected to improve the efficiency of our business.

    現状ではログアウト/ログインしてキャッシュやエラーをクリアする必要がありますが、これが面倒です。
    これをボタン一つでできるようにしてほしいです。

  20. Relay:Users who have already been invited in a group will not be invited with "Invite assignees as Viewers/Editors"

    [Background]
    A new feature has been added to Relay called "Invite assignees as Virwers/Editors".
    "Invite assignees as Virwers/Editors" are sent to users who have already been invited in the group.
    This is confusing because additional invitations are carried out to users who have already been invited.
    Furthermore, operationally, this requires the collaboration to be removed from the relevant file each time.
    *As a company rule, we are not allowed to collaborate with individuals individually, except in groups to which they have been previously invited by Admin.

    [Request]
    Users who have already been invited to a group should not be invited.
