  2. Allow Marking Folders as "Move Locked" To Prevent Users From Moving Certain Folders Regardless Of Permissions

    Our admins are constantly dealing with users who accidentally drag and drop folders into other folders. This can have a big impact across our org, especially when a high level folder that's shared across the company is moved. Here's a common use case:

    We have a top level Projects folder. That folder contains a subfolder for every organization we do business with. Those Organization folders then contain subfolders for individual projects. We'd like to be able to mark the Organization level folders as Move Locked so that our users don't accidentally move folders from one Organization into another. This happens…

  6. Create reports for Shield actions/tracking

    Create reporting for Shield activities, including the following:
    1) Classifications applied by their name (i.e. 'externalpublic used on 157 folders/files'). This would help determine popular and unpopular classifications.
    2) User who applied the classification label and each time they applied one (i.e. Person A applied shield classification labels on 10/1, 10/2, 10/3, etc). Helps see who is using the labels and how frequently.
    3) User and which label they applied (i.e. Person B applied the external
    public label on 10/1, 10/2, 10/3, etc.). Helps see a combo of the above two bullets.
    4) Number of times a shield classification…

  7. Not able to see all the overdue tasks for all users

    Currently I only can see the overdue tasks assigned to myself and the tasks I sent to others. We would like to see overall overdue tasks for all groups and other users. This overdue report is very important to our business process.

  8. Notifications from Box Relay aren't very useful without linking back to the file or folder

    Relay is a great tool - but the Notifications aren't very useful. There is no way to link to the actual file or folder that is involved, so the user gets a very nebulous notification that is basically meaningless. Instead of being helpful, it could actually cause confusion for the user, if there are multiple activities happening at the same time.

    Please update this functionality! Thanks!

  9. Please include a list of hard/soft limitations on the BoxSupport page, as described in "Product and API Scale Guidelines"

    Please include a list of hard/soft limitations on the BoxSupport page, as described in "Product and API Scale Guidelines".
    This information is currently available on request.
    However, hard/soft limits are variable information and you will need to request information on a regular basis.
    When obtaining the information on an request basis, there is a time lag before the contents are known.
    We always want to get the latest information independently ourselves, so we would like Box Support to keep us up to date with the latest informations.

    BoxSupportのページに、「製品およびAPIの規模に関するガイドライン」に記載されているような、ハードリミット/ソフトリミットの一覧を記載してください。
    この情報は現在、リクエストに応じて提供されています。
    しかし、ハードリミット/ソフトリミットは変動する情報なので、定期的に情報をリクエストする必要があります。

    リクエストベースで情報を入手する場合、内容が判明するまでにタイムラグが生じます。
    私たちは常に最新の情報を自身で入手したいと考えておりますので、Box Supportページには常に最新の情報を提供していただきたいと思います。

  10. Allow bulk actions to be interrupted (such as copy/move/restore/delete)

    When users copy / move / restore / delete a large number of items, we want them to be able to cancel if they notice a mistake along the way.
    Currently, when processing a large number of items in Box, we need to wait until the process is completed even if we notice a mistake.
    When processing large numbers of items, processing may require several days.
    During that time, folders and files are locked.
    Please make it possible to interrupt the process on the way.

  11. Add fixed-width font options

    Ticket # INC4849532 - Customer wants to use Box Notes to write documents that contain code-snippets and excerpts from logs. They would like to use a fixed-width font for these snippets, but Box Notes doesn't allow them to select font and there's no style for fixed-width.

    The issue is the same as the one described in this forum post: https://community.box.com/t5/Web-App-Forum/Boxnote-fixed-width-font/td-p/31194

  12. Insights map uses wrong geoip database

    We have noticed that the map displayed on the insights page does not use the same information the report attached to the map does. On the map we see connections to countries that are not in the report.

    This massively reduces the value of the map and has raised multiple security alerts, as we see connections from countries on our "forbidden list" that we cannot explain with the report.

    Lack of correct information is removing trust in the overall solution in our security department. This should be fixed soon.

  14. Entering multiple accounts should auto-populate under in Assignee(s) field.

    For the Relay window, users should enter emails one at a time so that the assignee options populate. For collaboration window, if entering all emails at once works, pasted accounts will be auto-populated. So it should also work in the Relay window.

  15. relay in progress view showing too many tasks

    Box lacks a dedicated way to see what tasks require my immediate attention.

    Tasks "in progress" show all tasks I haven't worked on, plus all tasks that my (former) colleagues have not yet finished. As we have some group tasks that not all colleagues respond to, the list of tasks is getting very long and makes it very hard for me to organise my work.

    A dedicated view "my open tasks", holding only the tasks that require an action for me, would greatly help.

  16. WoW Storage Usage Metric

    I'd need week over week total space used report that can be exported for the past several years. (ideally 7 years, same as other reports)

    Part of this data is currently available in Insights (Admin Console), but it only displays for the past 30 days and doesn't have ability to export in CSV or Excel.

    Background:
    To calculate our ROI on Box and to report to our executive, we'd need a way to find out the historical data and its increase rate.

  17. Ability to Enable/Disable Annotations

    We would like to request for a feature to be able to enable/disable Annotations.

    Annotations is very convenient, but sometimes it could make users confusing, if they do not know how to use it.
    Therefore, we would be grateful if there is a feature to be able to disable Annotations, and then enabling afterwards.

  18. Candidate destinations are not displayed when inviting files to collaborate(Box for iOS)

    Box for iPhone/iPad and Box for EMM don't offer suggested recipients when you invite collaborators to a file.

    When inviting a collaboration to a folder, a list of possible recipients is displayed. Please do the same in the mentioned app.

  19. Thumbnail previews of documents should show file type: docx vs pdf

    The new BOX.Com format no longer shows Word Docs with a Symbol vs PDF with
    a different symbol.

    i.e. they have removed the prior, very visual, cues as to document type.
    We can still see EXCEL symbol, but hopefully that will not be lost

    This is a problem for us since we have many documents with long names, and
    can't always see the final extension
    Not to mention visual cues are exceedingly useful and helpful.

  20. Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    You cannot delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.
    It is not necessary to display Notes that are no longer relevant to the user or that they no longer need to access.

    By deleting the history, only the Notes that are relevant to you will be displayed, which will improve the efficiency of your work in Box Note.


    Box Noteの「受信トレイ」と「最近のノート」の履歴を削除する。

    ボックスノートの「受信箱」と「最近使ったノート」の履歴を削除することはできません。
    ユーザーに関係のないノートや、ユーザーがアクセスする必要がなくなったノートを表示する必要はありません。

    履歴を削除することで、自分に関係のあるノートだけが表示されるようになり、Box Noteでの作業効率が向上します。
