  1. Ability to Upload an Email in PDF format to Box

    Box for Office: Add capability to upload PDF of a selected email to Box as a PDF (with options to also PDFs attachments appended to the email PDF).

    Rationale: It is against policy to store MSG files, however, archiving of email content is a high volume activity for many teams. Our company uses an Outlook enabled NuancePDF add-in, but the process of exporting a PDF, then uploading to Box is tedious

    Currently we’re not looking to store email backups in Box. However, we are investigating the idea of attaching emails to specific documents that would give more context to the document/file.

    This is not planned for our current roadmap. We will let you know if anything changes.

  3. Upload/Change User Avatars (Profile Pictures) from Managed Users Page in Admin Console

    Currently user avatars (profile pictures) can only be added, removed, or changed from an individual user's account settings and these avatars are not editable whatsoever via the admin console. Meaning for an admin to add one on behalf of a user or to remove one, they must use instant log in (which not many co-admins have).

    When clicking to edit a user from the Admin Console -> Managed Users page, options to manage the user's avatar should be presented (just like we have for editing their name, email, etc.).

    This proposed enhancement to email notifications and to custom branding is a reasonable idea, but an area that we are unlikely to invest in this year.

  7. When the Allow Content to be Deleted by Users option is selected, allow admin to customize follow-up reminders

    For a retention policy, the retention notification is sent to the owner 14 days prior to the expiration date. It looks like this is the only reminder the owner receives.

    REQUEST: When the Allow Content to be Deleted by Users option is selected, all admin to customize follow-up reminders to the Owner/Co-Owners once the retention period has passed. This option does not auto-delete the content so reminders would help ensure that they review the file and delete if necessary.

    This is an interesting use case. We will re-consider this work if we find it has a large impact on a substantial amount of our users.

  10. Expose A360 Viewer Integration Better (Preview & Context Menu)

    There are 2 main issues with this UX:
    1. It's buried in the More Options menu instead of being exposed at the top of the More Options menu, similar to the 'Open with' location for other files.
    2. In Preview (or when using a Shared Link to a non-collaborator), the user is not shown any option to use the A360 Viewer (since the full context menu isn't in Preview), so they see a 'we cannot preview this file type' error message.

    REQUESTS:
    1. Expose the A360 Viewer integration better in the More Options (context) menu
    2. Expose the A360 Viewer…

  12. Add Content Classification as a 'Then take this action' Option for Sharing / Upload / Download Policies

    Right now, the Upload, Sharing, and Download policies have various options in the 'Then take this action(s)' section of the Policy.

    REQUEST: Add ability to use Content Classification as part of the 'Then take this action(s)' section.

  13. Expose EXIF Metadata in the Box Webapp when Media (Photo, etc.) is Uploaded via Box Mobile App

    Currently we do not expose media EXIF metadata (location info, camera type, etc.) for files uploaded to Box using the standard Box mobile apps (we do for media uploaded through Capture though).

    This request is to provide a similar experience like we've already implemented with Capture.

  14. Error Messaging - Update 'File Type Not Supported' Error Message to Be More Specific When the Error is Not Related to File Types

    This is a request to update error messages for Box Edit to be more specific.

    Currently, the red bar that says 'Box Edit does not support this file type' appears for a variety of reasons not limited to just errors due to file type incompatibility. Users could see that error message when trying to use Box Edit with a PowerPoint, Word, or any other supported file type.

    This error also occurs when the Web App is having issues connecting to Box Edit on the actual computer and in other scenarios that are entirely unrelated to file types.

    For this reason,…

    Thank you for this suggestion. It is a niche request and I am not sure which problem it solves. We will reconsider with additional use case and demand info.

  18. HD Video Preview: Allow User to Download the Lower Quality (720P, 480P, etc.) Renditions of Video Files

    With HD Preview, users can choose the quality of the video in the Preview (based on network/bandwidth speed, etc.), but users cannot download those downsampled/lower quality 'renditions'.

    REQUEST: Allow users to download the lower quality renditions of video files on Box. For example, I upload a 1080P file, and I can choose to Preview the video in reduced 720P or 480P quality, and I can also choose to download those same renditions if I'd like. Think of it like adding a 'which quality/size output would you like?' option added after clicking 'download' for a video file.

    Thank you for the suggestion!

    Providing a way to create a copy of an HD video, but at a lower quality so that it is easily downloadable is a low priority for the team.

    It’s a niche use case at the moment and there’s a workaround (use a tool to downscale the video and upload that in addition to the HD video into Box).

    Proposed:
    "Your account has been deactivated. Your administrator has deactivated this account. If you think this was a mistake, please contact the Company Helpdesk."

    We are not prioritizing custom messages for in app pop-ups at the moment. This is an edge use case, resource-intensive, and has a low ROI for the majority of our users. We will let you know if anything changes.
