  1. Ability to set a custom attribute in the Box Capture application

    We would like the ability to set an attribute in the Box Capture application to automatically name photos with a desired store name.

    For example, rather than automatically name the photo 2016-05-23_001.jpg, we would like to have the option to set the default name via an attribute or prefix that would enable them to more easily identify, search on, and organize them.

    As an example they would like the option in the Box Capture application to be able to Set Photo Name Prefix to "Boise" so that the resulting photos would be saved to Box as: Boise2016-05-23001.jpg; Boise…

    Thanks for the feedback. We’ll be exploring a better way of providing value in the naming convention of repeated saving actions within a session.

  2. Documents password protected in external applications (such as Excel) preview as garbled text.

    It would be better to have some sort of messaging that explained these types of documents aren't supported

    Thank you for providing this feedback! We don’t believe there is a strong enough use case to pursue this.

    We believe our efforts are better spent making it easier to keep permissions up to date on folder vs. different expiry on collab invites.

  5. Audit behavior of how enterprise settings are applied.

    Most of our settings are applied day forward. We should add an option to apply immediately to all existing users and folders.

    Day forward settings for example are Expiration settings, Domain Whitelist settings.

    Retroactive application of settings is not scalable. We are unlikely to implement this change and the current behavior is by design.

  6. Password reset email notifications to admins: Add possibility for admin to auto-reply to the affected user

    When Enterprise Setting: Notify Admins when users request a password reset email is checked, any other admin will to receive a notification whenever one of their Managed users request a new password.

    It would help being able to reply to the managed user from this notification in order to provide better interactivity between admin/user and control/security over the request.

    This is a reasonable request, however we do not have enough user demand to prioritize this feature. Please keep submitting your use cases!

  7. Auto-update Python

    The version of Python that is installed with Sync doesn't auto update. Concerned about security vulnerability.

    Python 2.7 and 3 are both supported releases. Python 2.7 will be supported through 2020.

    We review and update our python version periodically through Sync auto-update. We currently use python 2.7.9 with Box Sync. We plan to update to the latest version (2.7.11+).

    We only install Python to Box specific location on Windows (%ProgramFiles%\Box\Box Sync) and Mac (inside Box Sync.app bundle). Other applications will not use our python installation.

    We reviewed the CVE list of Python and there’s no CVE that requires immediate update from 2.7.9.

    Previews may load more slowly the first time if the file has not been converted yet. Some file types may not be pre-converted. Subsequent viewings should be faster for these files.

    Preview loading performance is something we’re always focused on improving, but there are no specific efforts on the roadmap for this right now.

    We encourage Kofax to build against our API to create this integration.

    Our new release of “Box Verified” is designed to try to solve this issue by allowing a box subdomain that is specific to enterprises (and not to personal users).

    This is a different approach, but there are so many technical issues with the customer-domain approach (HTTPS certs, DNS syncing, etc.) that it is not feasible at this time.

    Only AV checks and FW checks will not work on Windows Server today. This is because the info we use to evaluate is not available on Servers (it is available on Windows Workstations).

    This enhancement is not planned for now, but we will investigate what will be required to support Windows Server in the future.

  14. Enhance document capturing capabilities with our mobile app

    Add OCR, cropping, image stabilizer etc.

    This is not planned.

    We don’t see enough customer demand for this yet, and supporting every additional content type takes a significant amount of engineering time and effort.

  16. Ability to add a comment to a user.

    If we mark an account as Inactive, we'd like to be able to add a comment to the user for tracking purposes e.g., "Disabled by Jane D. per contract non-renewal."

    Is this for a shared link use case? If so, please provide additional feedback in the comments.

  18. Total File Count by File Type via Admin Console

    We would like to see how many files are in Box at any given time and by file type. This would help drive the seamless use of Box across our org. due to the amount of content we already have stored.

    This information is available via API or by using overall size of storage as the proxy for number of files if possible

  19. Provide more clear password guidelines when creating a new account

    For example, add a real-time check that tells the user what is missing in the current password while typing it.

    Thank you! This is not something we are planning to revise. We will reconsider with additional feedback.

  20. Folder Level Custom Terms of Service (TOS)

    Currently, terms of service is enterprise-wide. This presents a conundrum for large enterprises who have several departments, some of which do want the TOS feature but some of which do not.

    We do not plan to implement this at this time given its narrow use case.
