  1. Add recent folders to the "Recents" carousel

    Adding recent folders into the "Recents" carousel would be a huge value add in working through current projects.

  2. Shared Link Password Policy

    Much like the default link expiry policy we would also like one specific to forcing passwords for shared links and preferably being able to define that policy with minimum characters and complexity.

    Bonus would be passwords that are auto-generated and viewable by the creator of the shared links to minimize the need for external tools.

  3. Check the position of Sign field

    I would like to have a feature for the Sign sender to be able to review where they inputted each sign filed ( sign, date etc) so that they can see easily where they have set up wrong.

  4. To retain Tasks even after "task-related user" is permanently deleted

    Currently, if a user is deleted, all of his/her related tasks will be deleted after the user is permanently deleted. Although task activities like approval and completion are recored in the admin reporting, it is not user-friendly and is unintuitive.

  6. Folders to which only managed users can be invited

    【Request】
    Regarding the "Restrict collaboration to within {OrganizationName}" setting in the folder settings,
    I would like the definition of users recognized as users in the organization to be selectable from the following two options
    ・Users who have same domains OR Managed Users (Same as current specifications)
    ・Only Managed Users

    【Current specifications & Issues】
    Currently, for folders with this setting turned on, users can invite others who meet either of the following conditions
    - Managed users of the tenant
    - Users with a Box account with an email address in the registered domain

    As it stands, this specification allows free accounts…

  7. UI enhancements to indicate moving/copying activity in progress

    When moving/copying files and folders in BoxDrive, I want to be able to see visually that an operation is taking place.

    Currently, BoxWeb displays a green dialog at the top of the screen when you move or copy files or folders,
    but However, BoxDrive has an explorer-like feel, so I don't think this kind of display appears even when a move/copy is performed.

  8. Box Drive support MacOS Monterey

    Box does not support Box Drive aliases with Mac OS Monterey. We need this feature back so users don't remove/delete files and folders from Box by mistake.

  9. Ability to select external users who are collaborating on a folder to be notified of workflows created in Relay

    Currently, it is possible to set external users as notification recipients for workflows created in Relay only under certain conditions.

    Conditions:
     ・The folder/file is owned by the creator of the Relay Workflow.
     ・It is the external user who is invited to this folder/file that is set as the notification destination.

    There are many situations in which we want to send notifications to external users in Relay workflows.
    However, in a tenant running a closed folder configuration, it is rare that the workflow creator is the owner of the folder.

    Request:
    For managed users who are collaborating on folders and who…

  10. Allow box sign envelope/request to be edited by sender after sending

    Our box sign files are typically sent from admin, to an approver/signer being a manager or partner, then sent to our client for signing. We deal in financial & tax documents and so the manager/partner needs to check documents and signing packs for completeness and accuracy before sending. We don't have time to create these packs ourselves as this is an admin task (similar to old style drafting letters and putting them in the post).

    If the manager/partner finds an error, the whole document envelope/request needs to be cancelled and started over again. An error might be in the contents…

  11. Ability to manually update a Box Drive version (menu option)

    I would like to see version update added to the right-click menu of the app so that I can manually update when the latest version of BoxDrive is released.

    Currently, Box Edit and Box Drive are designed to automatically update their versions, but depending on the user, the timing of implementation may be delayed or there may be cases where the version is not automatically updated.
    In order to deal with this, we have to uninstall and reinstall the tool, which is very inconvenient.
    Therefore, I would like to see version update added to the right-click menu of the app…

  12. Create automated Relay against multiple folders

    Many times, there is a single automated workflow, e.g. from a file action or folder event, that actually applies across different folders in the structure.

    Today, we can only select one folder for the workflow and therefore have to duplicate the workflow multiple times if we want it to work in different places. Then, if the workflows needs updating, then it has to be done in multiple places, which isn't the best place use of time.

    It would be great if, in the workflow builder, if you can select more than folder for where the workflow should listen for the…

  13. Comments should copy over when files are copied from one folder to another

    Not sure why this has changed, however, when copying files from one folder to another (inside a parent folder) it would be great if the comments would also copy over. They used to, up until mid-2021. For example, I have files I share for approval in a working project, that I copy into an ASSETS folder after approval

  15. Signature logs should also be able to be specified as a trigger condition for Box Relay

    Box Relay and Box Sign integration has been released, allowing for automation on signed files.
    The current specifications do not allow automated processing targeting signature logs.
    In our case, we would like to move not only the signed file but also the signature log to an arbitrary folder.
    Therefore, we request that the signature log can also be specified as a trigger condition.
    English version:Box Relay + Box Sign integration to automate actions based on document status

    <署名ログもBox Relayのトリガー条件として指定できるようにしてほしい>
    Box RelayとBox Signの連携がリリースされ、署名されたファイルに対する自動化を行うことができるようになりましたが、
    署名ログを対象とした自動化処理が現在の仕様では行うことが出来ません。
    私たちが利用したいケースでは、署名したファイルだけでなく、署名ログも任意のフォルダに移動したいと考えております。
    そのため、署名ログもトリガー条件として指定できるようにリクエストします。

  16. Requests regarding Box For Teams V2

    I would like to use the Box For Teams V2 integration, but the following functions are bottlenecks and cannot be used.

    Therefore, I want to be able to turn off only the following functions in the tenant settings.
     
     ・Automatic creation of Box folders for teams/channels
     ・Automatic mapping of user permissions

    In most cases, Japanese companies use a controlled system in which the administrator owns the items.

    However, if folders are automatically created or permissions are automatically attached with the Box For Teams V2 integration, control cannot be taken, so we requested this.

  17. Send Error Message when it is wrong email address in Box Sign request

    Currently in Box Sign, when you input an email address that doesn't exist, it doesn't give any error and in the interface, it is successfully "sent".

    If there is a feature to let the user know that there is an error because it could not send the sign request, it would be very useful.

    The background of this need is that if there is a typo in an email address and the sender doesn't notice it, they would just assume that the sign request email was sent and there is no way to know that the receiver never received it.

  18. View Owner/Creator of Files in Box Drive

    We would like the ability to display accurate information about the Owner/creator of files within Box Drive for Windows. The Owner column in Windows was used prior to our migration to Box to show who originally created the file for a folder all in a single glance. Although Box.com shows the upload history of individual files, it's a manual process of viewing each file-- a pain point-- compared to the table view of File Explorer with the Owner column displaying. Currently, within Box Drive/File Explorer, the Owner column is empty. This would be useful for the users to know who…

  19. Ability to sort bookmarks with other files (e.g., alphabetically)

    Please allow links/bookmarks within folders to be sorted (e.g., alphabetically) and not stuck to the end of the list. This would make it easier to find items that are dated; I, for example, have all my items dated, and it's super inconvenient to have the bookmarks located separately/out of order within my folders.
