  1. "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" when running a report on a specific folder

    When running a report on a "Selected Folder" would be helpful to be able to "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" versus having to select each and every file/folder.

  2. Improve Box Drive Synchronization

    Have experienced slowness of synchronization from Box Webapp to Box Drive. It usually takes 5-7 mins. Need to improve this behavior or to have any function to quickly reflect the change for the certain folders/files.

  3. Display folder path when Admin select folders to run User Activity reports.

    There are many same folder names. When Admin like to select specific a folder to run the report, he or she can not select right folder due to having the same folder name. If there is folder path, Admin is able to select right folder to run the report.

  4. Reports: Capture Failed actions like "Move" and "Copy" as a User Activity Report Error

    Hi Team,

    We wanted to capture the failed "moved" and "copied" attempts whenever generating User Activity Reports.

  5. Allow default sorting to "Favorites" and created "Collections" so that they appear alphabetically.

    If you have dozens or hundreds of folders in your "Favorites" and they are not sorted alphabetically, then it is nearly impossible to find your subject folder. Just make Favorites and Collections default sort alphabetically or give us the choice to set the default. Other people may want the last visited folder to be at the top, but still others may want to see it alphabetically. Please give us the option to do so as a default treatment.

  6. bulk manage Shared Links

    Provide a way for all shared links in an account to have their permission levels / access levels / expiry dates modified in bulk, rather than having to change each one individually which is extremely time consuming for large doc sets.

  7. Shared Link options via Outlook.

    We want to be able to select Shared Link options via Outlook.

    For example, the default setting of [Shared Link] is “People in ***(company name)”.
    Other Shared Link options (Ex: People with the link) cannot be selected, when users “Attach from Box” via Outlook.

    It would be more convenient for users if they can change Shared Link options via Outlook (without opening Box Web App).

  8. Add Support for Windows Server OS

    I see this has been posted int he past, but am going to post again. With the current Remote Work situation the ability to run Box Drive on a Windows Server OS would be extremely useful. We have over 1,000 employees working remotely and collaborating, and those files need to make their way back to our main storage. The best way to do that is by syncing box drive and using a 3rd party application to manage and move the files. This would ideally be done on a server based system for reliability.

  9. Remove OneDrive & SharePoint as storage location when deploying Box for Teams

    Box is our central location for all content across our company. We also use Microsoft Teams for collaboration, which is why we're excited to roll out the new Box integration with Teams. However, there are still ways users can accidentally upload files to OneDrive & SharePoint. This may be a Microsoft limitation, but can Box find a way to remove these as options when we turn on your integration? We want Box as the only storage location for any file uploaded to Microsoft Teams.

  11. Relay workflow sharing across users

    As far as I can tell, only the person who has created the Relay workflow has access to the workflow and I can't share the workflow I have already created with one of my colleagues. As a result, if he wants to start a new workflow using the same flow that I had built, he has to start over as I can't share mine with him. This is a really basic function you need to create ASAP if you want adoption with Relay.

  12. Sync multiple accounts to Box Drive

    Allow multiple accounts to sync with Box Drive.

    Many of us have multiple corporate/personal accounts that require local drive sync'd access.

    We’re not planning a ‘fast switch’ option to allow a user to easily switch between 2 different Box accounts on Box Drive while maintaining all cached data. The only option we have now is that users can ‘logout’ of their current account and sign into another account, but the caveat is that this will delete all their local cached data/MFO settings from Box Drive

  13. Freedom to move folders

    Content sprawl is our #1 challenge. Please let us organize our folders. We don't want to interfere with the permissions, but I want to have an "Active Projects" folder and a "Project Archive" folder where I can drag and drop those relevant folders in.

  14. Universally apply multiple templates to a file

    Universal metadata fields:
    Today, metadata tagging is not universal. This customer sets the metadata tags for particular folders, and one of the universal tags is Community Name. They want to set up that metadata list on multiple file hierarchies; but they can't currently use the same metadata lists over and over again.
    Not every employee can see entire file structure; it's not owned by one person; when you define metadata as a list in Box - you apply it at a folder level, but we have non-overlapping folders that need same metadata.
    A metadata template can be applied, but within…

  15. Box Drive: Display pop up warning when copy / move large number of items

    Just like below warning pop-up displayed in WebApp, Box Drive shall pop up a warning to let the user know when large number of files / folders are going to be copied / moved.  (also to prevent accidental copies / moves)

    Copy Items

    (!) This operation is not immediate and may take some time.

    You are about to copy 9000 items to the folder 'Project Folder 01'. Due to the large number of items, this operation may take up to several hours to complete. During this operation, content within this folder may not be available for access. Do you want…

  16. For files, folders and users name, we need to use U+10000 - U+10FFFF in Unicode characters.

    Today, we can only use BMP in Unicode characters on Box.

    However, Windows OS supports many Unicode characters(eg, emoji), besides BMP, so this can be a problem in data migration from a file servers to Box.

    Also, in CJK, Unicode characters other than BMP are used in personal name, so we consider this to be a big issue.

    We hope to have many Unicode characters available everywhere on Box.

  18. Ability to sync specific folder manually on Marking for Offline only if needed.

    Ability to sync specific folder manually for Marking for Offline only if needed.
    And, Drive should be added new icons for this.
    When PC comes online, if the latest version is available, something icons on folders indicates you can get a new update on the folder.
    it would be very helpful to notice them need to update on the folder.
    This feature would help to reduce network usage between PC and Box.

  19. We have 700+ users. There should be an easy way that an admin or co-admin can notify everyone.

    Example: say we need to do some maintenance and would like to notify all of our users. Right now I was told the only way to do this is to email everyone or share a link with everyone. With over 700+ users that would be a LOT of emailing or sharing. Can you please create a way we can send out a notification to our whole enterprise?

  20. Send a "here's how your items are shared" report to each user periodically

    One of the most common sources of security breaches is due to a user inadvertently sharing an item more broadly or for longer than they intended.

    A simple way to help limit those sorts of security breaches would be for Box to email every user a report periodically (configurable by the admin, but roughly monthly) that said "Here's how everything you own is shared with other people, and here's a link to the KB article that'll tell you how to fix it if it's not what you want", then showed a report of their folders, files, and shared links, with…
