  1. Ignore unreadable files in Box Sync.

    The users environment causes Excel to create unreadable temporary files. Box Sync will not sync temporary files. However, not being able to read the file causes Box Sync to throw and error and quit. The user would prefer Box Sync to ignore unreadable files.

  2. Reports: Replace User ID in the Legal Hold Report with User's Email

    In the current Legal Hold report export (Excel file), users are referred to by their User ID (e.g., 123233124) which isn't really helpful for an admin to identify 'who' that is.

    Using email address would be a much better field to include, either replacing the User ID field OR adding in Email as an additional column.

    We are re-designing the managed users page and will focus on adding advanced filtering of managed users by status as a follow up. Right now, releasing the re-design will be our first priority, so filtering by status is not on the near-term
    (6 month) roadmap. We will revisit this after we release the new page.

  5. Server side un-zipping of files

    Some teams share very large (multi-GB) zip files and a separate team members need to see the contents of these zips.

    Having the full team wait for Box Edit Open with Compressed (zip file) option or using Box Sync are our only workarounds today and not time or network efficient for users.

    While the request here is clear, this is not planned on our roadmap. The workaround would be to alert a set of admins on the account and have them deactivate or make the user inactive.

    Thank you for this suggestion. This would be a pretty big change from a technical perspective and is not currently planned.

  9. Customize Upload Policy Email Notifications

    Ability to add customized logos, hyperlinks, and change the text of the notification email so it makes more sense for our organization.

    As the notification stands now, it's generic and we want to make it more descriptive.

  10. Subfolder Sync: Don't Sync the Files Located in the Parent Folder Path

    One of the nuances of Box Sync 4.X's 'subfolder sync' feature is that files that are located in the folders of the parent path for the synced subfolder are also synced, which creates a weird, and unexpected, experience for end users.

    Reference: https://community.box.com/t5/Box-Sync/How-Do-I-Sync-Subfolders-In-Box-Sync-4-0/ta-p/116

    REQUEST: Fix this behavior so that even when only a subfolder is marked for 'syncing', none of the files in the parent folders are also inadvertently synced, and instead only sync the parent folders to keep the path in tact.

    Customers can use the Get Enterprise Groups API to retrieve groups by name: https://developer.box.com/v2.0/reference.

    However, we do not provide this functionality through the Groups UI in the Admin Console. This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap because we are currently focusing on improving the user interface and performance to manage users.

  17. Remove 'Get our app to view this on mobile' Text/Link in Emails for EMM-Enabled EIDs OR Allow Link Customization

    For customers that use Box for EMM (and have disabled the standard Box apps), the 'get our app to view this on mobile' link/text in the standard Box email notifications (like for @mentions, uploads, etc.) is confusing because users in that EID won't actually be able to log into the standard Box app that it links to.

    REQUEST:
    1. Either provide the option to remove this text from emails
    OR
    2. Allow customization of this text to change the link that it points to (so a customer can link to their software/app catalog where users download the Box for EMM…

    Hey there! Thanks for submitting this feedback, but due to competing priorities, we cannot put this ask on our roadmap at this time.

  18. Users with View Uploader permissions should have the ability to edit folders they create

    In this case, the viewer uploader is the owner of the sub folder they have created, but they cannot do anything to it once it is created.

    Can it be filed to be reviewed or modified? If a person can create a folder, surely they can rename it, move files into it. If Box does not want the viewer uploader to be able to rename a folder or move items into it, do not allow viewer uploader the ability to create a sub folder.

    Agreed that it is somewhat strange a viewer uploader can create a subfolder. I believe this was put in place, because creating a folder is somewhat like taking the upload action.

    Sometimes, when many files are uploaded, it is cleaner to upload them all in one place, and so that is why the Viewer Uploader is granted this permission.

    One particular odd consequence, is this person can now create a folder but not rename it (let’s say they made a typo).

    This is not oft-requested and impacts a small minority of users. We can look at fixing this in the future with additional customer demand.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Based on the current information provided, we don’t currently have a feature like this planned.

    We’d love to hear additional use case context from interested users, however, in why the need exists to have Viewer Uploaders be able to ‘delete’ without simply raising them to ‘Editor’ level. Any additional information would be very helpful.

  20. Live Video Streaming

    Ability to live stream video content via Box.

    Interesting feature request! However, we’re not able to prioritize it at this time due to competing priorities.
