  5. Inactive folder owners content not available to other collaborators in the folder

    Currently, if a folder owner is made inactive, the collaborators in the folder can't access the content. If you allowed users to copy content to a new folder, it would cause issues if retention polices are in place as users can't currently set policies for folders.

    Additionally, if they copy the content to a folder with a greater retention period the extended timeline will then be applied to the content.

    If a folder owner is made inactive and the folder has a retention policy applied to it can this folder automatically be transferred a nominated person with Governance admin rights…

  7. Add Item Owner to content-related events

    Currently the API events do not contain the item owner for content-related activities (download, preview, etc.). Finding the owner of an item associated with an event requires subsequent API calls to inspect the object (file/folder).

  8. Custom Terms of Service - Rich Text Formatting

    We will be sending many external collaboration invitations to users and would like to format their custom terms of service (Bold, Underline, bullets, spacing).

  9. Expose timestamp in the Web UI on date fields for Custom Metadata

    This has to do with how metadata is presented in the Box UI - it should show both date and time values.

  10. Non Compliant Device signing onto Device Trust seeing Domain

    We have enabled Device Trust for our organization, but we noticed that when a non-compliant device attempts to use Box Sync with their Children's account, it sends a response listing the domain in which the device must be registered to.

    "Device must be a member of one of the following domains: kidsnet.childrenshc.org"

    We would prefer if the domain name is not sent out to the web and instead the message "Device is not a member of the allowed Domain(s)" as a security concern.

  11. Sharing Policy - Allow Pasting of Multiple Domains

    The UX for admins to enter in domains on the Policies -> Sharing policy is pretty bad.

    Box does not currently allow admins to paste in a list of multiple (even 2) domains at the same time, whether they're separate by spaces, semicolons, etc.

    If we have a list of 40 domains to enter, the admin types them in one by one.

    Request: allow for copy/pasting of multiple domains at once, just like we allow for in the 'invite collaborators' pop-up in the webapp.

  12. Respect the EID's Shared Link Default when Using 'Upload & Attach' in Outlook to Save to 'All Files'

    When using Box for Office inside of Outlook, specifically using the 'Upload and Attach' button when composing a new email, users are able to choose a Shared Link access level (such as 'people with the link') even if that access level is disabled in their EID. Once the user clicks upload, they receive an error because the shared link was not able to be generated due to that restriction. This behavior specifically occurs when the user is choosing to save to their 'All Files' page when using the Upload & Attach feature.

    If the user chooses a specific folder (a…

    We are focused more on the Office native integration.

  14. Global setting to control "Items per page on All Files" for managed users

    Want ability to update default items on All Files page to 100 for all managed users, and not make users do this individually.

    This is not a setting we are likely to build. We hope the relatively new Files app enables users to more easily find this setting in their end user experience to change it themselves.

  15. Allow Auto-Provisioning from Box for Office App

    Currently, users who get Box for Office pushed to their computer (so they see the Box buttons in Outlook/Word/Excel/PowerPoint) but haven't gone to the Web App to auto-provision their account end up not being able to log into Box for Office as the Box for Office login flow does NOT support auto-provisioning.

    Request: Allow a user to auto-provision their account from any endpoint, including Box for Office.

  16. Bulk Add - Allow Adding of >1,000 Users at Once

    The Bulk Add tool currently can only handle adding about 1,000 users at once, which isn't scalable when our enterprise has tens or hundreds of thousands of users.

  17. Mobile - Enable Seamless App-to-App Login Flow for 'Add a Place -> Box' within Office Mobile Apps

    Currently, when users have the Box/Box for EMM app and are logged in, when they go to the Office apps (Word, Excel, or PowerPoint) and click Add a Place -> Box, they have to ALSO manually log in there.

    This could be improved through an 'app-to-app'-style login handoff.

    Ideal UX:
    1. User is logged into Box / Box for EMM app
    2. User either taps 'Open in Excel/PowerPoint/Word' from the Box app OR taps Add a Place -> Box within Office app
    3. The Box and Office apps 'talk' to each other and perform a login handoff (like Capture does…

  19. Customize 'Download Box Edit' URL for Companies that Restrict Users from Installing Software

    We restrict user computers and do not allow end users to download software to their machines (even if that software installation does not require admin rights). As such, the 'download Box Edit' prompt in the Webapp when a user tries to use Box Edit for the first time (when Box Edit isn't previously installed) is very confusing as users will click 'download' but then the installation will fail.

    REQUEST: 'Customize' the 'Download Box Edit' button, including choosing a custom URL that the button points to (for example, 'we have an internal software download catalog - I want the 'download Box…

  20. Support Kerberos Authentication for Macs (Box for Desktop)

    We require authentication for all traffic on our corporate networks/proxies.

    We leverage Kerberos and request full support of the Kerberos protocol for all calls made by Box for Desktop.

    Context: Currently, Box Sync supports Kerberos for the login flow (due to the Sync login page being an embedded WebKit browser which DOES support Kerberos), but Box Sync doesn't actually support Kerberos for its own network requests (that happen after the login flow).
