  1. Box Drive: Display pop up warning when content is moved to external folder

    Just like below warning pop-up displayed in WebApp, Box Drive shall pop up a warning to let the user know the item ownership will be changed to external user, when moved to external folder. (also to prevent accidental moves)

    Change Item Owner
    By moving this item you will be transferring ownership to John Doe (john.doe@boxsample1[.]com) at Box Sample1 Company. In some cases, you may not be able to undo this action based on restrictions in the destination location.

  2. Shared link expiry notification to be sent to shared link creator as well

    As of today, Shared link expiry notification is only sent to the owner of the folder, can we extend this notification to the creator of the shared link as well.

    Reason being owner of the folder might not always be the creator of the shared link, it can be anyone from co-owner, editor etc.

    This will help us limit out the chance of users missing out on the notification.

  3. Enhance flexibility to expiration of Public Link

    When a Public Link expires, the link is disable and not traceable. Often time endusers do not know what file/folder it was. Especially, when a receiver of the link was an external user like customer, we would like at least to identify which one it was internally. So I would like an option to automatically update Public Link to Company Link or Collaborator only link upon expiration.

  4. Create a Task to provide a notification

    Create a Task to provide a notification to a user. For example if a document has been moved, this Task would create a notification to Bob that the file has been moved. He shouldn't have to do anything with this or approve or complete it, just be notified.

  5. Mobile: The operation of accessing Box from an Office application and opening a file requires increased security.

    Access Box from an Office application and open the file.
    Current status,The contents can be copied and pasted regardless of the Enterprise setting.
    This will lead to the leakage of the content without the intention of the administrator.

    They need to control the copying and pasting of content when you access Box from an Office application and open a file.

  6. Retain annotations in subsequent version(s) of a document

    We use annotations when a group of us is proofing and suggesting edits to a document. When we're finished, when the designer makes our edits to the document, and then uploads a new version. Unfortunately, once the new version is uploaded, unlike general comments, the annotations are gone so we can't check in our changes. It would be great if you could make it possible to view annotations from the previous version of a document. Right now, the only workaround is to avoid using annotations, or to open the previous version of the document in a separate browser window and…

  7. Please add popup when adding or moving a file from local to Box

    We can easily add or move file from local storage to Box drive or browser.
    However, box does not prompt any popup when we add or move file.

    It may cause miss operation.
    So, Please add popup when add or movefile.

  8. Alert users to communication failures between box and Office Online

    Three times in the last two months, we have lost hours of edits to box files made in PowerPoint Online. Box’s position is that this is a communication failure on the Microsoft side: box passed the file to Microsoft and Microsoft failed to pass the file back. The edits made are lost with no recovery possible.

    Since Microsoft has published its auto-save frequency for all of its integration partners (see https://wopi.readthedocs.io/en/latest/scenarios/coauth.html), could box implement a process to check for the auto-save in the window specified by Microsoft, and alert the end user if it’s not occurring? If box sees…

  9. Allow users to easily set retention on an individual file or folder

    End users need to have the ability to easily apply retention policies to individual documents. They should be able to click an apply policy button, choose the policy and click OK
    Policies should be able to be configured so that users only see policies that apply to them or they have access to.

  10. Metadata table(row: files, column: metadata keys)

    We are looking for a table type of view of files(row) and metadata keys(column), that allows us to be able to configure their own views of data in Box.

    It allows us to...
    - configure the view with applying metadata templates(can select the keys to show)
    - filter and sort the view
    - update metadata directly from this view
    - export the view of data to a csv file

    This sort of solution helps users to reduce the time spent for searching the content and updating the metadata values(and it would be competitive with SharePoint library view).

    A box-native metadata table is not currently on the roadmap, but we have launched our metadata query toolkit alongside a content-explorer element that can emulate the same experience.

  11. Ability to reject group collaboration by individuals.

    The user may be invited as a group to a folder that is of little relevance to him.

    If we are invited to a folder as a group, we cannot remove the collaboration as only an individual.If we invite a group, but individuals within the group do not need to collaborate, please add a setting that allows us to de-collaborate (reject) only the relevant users.

    <個人がグループコラボレーションを拒否するための機能>

    ユーザーは、自分とはあまり関係のないフォルダにグループとして招待されることがあります。
    グループとしてフォルダに招待された場合、個人のみで連携を解除することはできません。

    グループを招待しているが、グループ内の個人がコラボレートを必要としていない場合、
    該当するユーザーのみコラボレートを解除(拒否)する設定を追加してください。

  12. Box Drive: Change cache location

    It would be really awesome to allow the box drive cache location to be placed somewhere other than C:\Users<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Box\Box\cache, say on on a separate volume that doesn't consume space on C: (boot / application drive). Ideally I would like to place it on my second ssd D:

  13. Locked Files

    It would be REALLY great if there were a way in Box to pull up all of the files you have locked. My team shares tons of excel files all day long. If I forget to unlock a file, no one else knows if they can get in. Half the time I'm not in it but forgot to unlock it. If there were a way to pull up all files at any given time in one place that I've locked where I could unlock them from that screen if I'm no longer in them, it would save us a lot…

  15. New Files take 10 minutes to appear in the search (Content Explorer)

    It takes ~10 minutes for a newly added file to appear in the search of the Content Explorer UI Element. In the meantime, if you attempt to search for that file based on the name, it displays no results, making it look like a bug. It can take even longer if the servers are busy (it took ~20 minutes for a file I uploaded to appear in a search one time)

    Please look for ways to reduce the turnaround on this. A suggestion: the file should be available to search by name right away, if it takes ~10 minutes to…

  17. Offer preview of images for Box Drive or Box Sync.

    As a designer, when working on a publication, it would be helpful to be able to have a preview of images saved in Box for quicker identification directly from the Desktop Box Drive. Right now, we have to preview with Finder, which is an additional step and makes the process cumbersome. Thank you for your consideration.

  20. Decrease the line space between each files on the New UI

    Hi team ,

    I received a feedback from a client that the new UI made the line spacing bigger and would like to make the line space to decrease to before so that they can see more files in one screen.

    Can you please consider this or be able to have option to change the line space?

    Thank you in advance for the consideration

    Thanks for the feedback. We have made this change in order to make it easier for users to read and scan their file lists. While other users have made similar comments when they first saw the change, many of them have also told us they adapted to the change and prefer the new design.
