  1. Set "SSO Required"/"SSO Enabled" for each user

    The current "SSO Required" is for all managed users.
    When creating "administrator user and general user" as a managed user, there are the following problems.
    -It is necessary to create an administrator user ID on the IdP side.
    -When accessing as an administrative user, it takes time and effort to log in from the IdP and access Box.
    -A license fee will also be charged on the IdP side.

    If we can set "SSO required" and "SSO enabled" for each user, the problem will be solved.

  2. Make Workflows Shareable Among Users (Box Relay and Box Relay Lite)

    In Box Relay, we can check the progress of workflows in the [Tracking] function.
    Currently, only the owner of the workflow, and Admins who are granted to access to workflows can see this [Tracking].

    However, the progress of workflows within the enterprise should be visible to other users as well.
    (e.g. Users who have tasks assigned in the workflow, or Co-Owners of the folder where the workflow is triggered.)

    It would be useful if the owners could share their workflows to other users.

  3. Relay Workflow period Allocations based on work days rather than natural days (i.e Exclude Weekends)

    When assigning a task in relay you can assign the period in days associated to the task. at This point in time this does not allow the option to assign such days to working days but only natural days. Therefore if and when a weekend occurs during the timeline of the workflow action weekend days (non-working days absorbs the task timeline. the request is that there must be an option to assign a task only for working days (excluding weekends)

  4. Copy All Folder Settings when copying a Folder

    When copying a folder, all folder settings should be copied over as well (or have the option to do so). As is, some settings do copy over while others don't. For example:

    Can Copy: Restrict Collaboration to within ETF, Disable Commenting, Shared Link Access, Watermarking, Uploading (Overwrite files) and Email notifications
    Won't Copy: Only Folder owners and co-owners can send collab invites, Hide Collaborators, Allow Uploads to this folder

    This would be especially useful when copying a template folder with a folder structure that needs the same settings when copied for a new project/customer/etc.

  5. cascading auto-start workflows

    cascading auto-start workflows. We have a specific use case defined that would greatly benefit from this capability - shield classification being applied automatically alerts the uploader of the file that the content needs to be moved. This would be a big win for USAA

  6. We want the ability to display a list of tags.

    I'd like to see this kind of feature because it makes it easier to check tags by displaying them in a list.

  7. We want the ability to add tags in batches.

    Adding tags individually can be time-consuming, so I would like to see the ability to add tags in batches.

  8. I want to lock an instance's value of a metadata template

    Given that a template has multi-select that has A, B and C as value. Currently, if a user has attached an Instance of a Template to a file, on that Instance, a multi-select field has the value of “B”. If the Template is updated so that multi-select option “B” is changed to “D”, then that change will also affect the value in the Instance (and all other Instances of the Template). Because the value of “B” no longer exists as a valid option on the Template, Box cannot keep that value in the Instance. Similarly, if the option “B” was…

  9. Limit the use of specific metadata templates to specific folders and specific user-owned content.

    When using metadata, it is important to gain the benefits of adding and managing metadata templates, but at present, anyone with authority can use any metadata template.
    You can manage your content more sophisticatedly by limiting the use of specific metadata templates to specific folders.

  11. Make sync actually work correctly and reliably

    Box seems to have abandoned any effort to improve sync. It has the same problems that it had 5? 6? 7? years ago. It takes forever to sync. It consumes huge amounts of CPU. It gets hung up all the time. A former associate who was friends with an employee of Box once (about 5 years ago) complained to the friend about the problems with sync. The employee's response: "use sync less." That appears to be Box's strategy: they don't fix the problems with the program; rather, their advice is use the program less. That's pathetic. Fix your software.

  12. 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…

  14. Add a setting to prevent the "Add Task" from being displayed.

    When we preview the file, on the right side of the screen, in the Activity column, we will see "Add Task".
    However, there are times when we don't want our users to use the task feature.
    Please add a setting to prevent the "Add Task" from being displayed.
    For example, it would be nice if we could disable the task function in the folder settings.

    ファイルをプレビューした際、画面右側、アクティビティのカラムに「タスクの追加」とあります。
    しかし、タスク機能をユーザーに利用させたくないことがあります。
    「タスクの追加」を表示しないようにする設定を追加してください。
    たとえば、フォルダの設定でタスク機能を無効にするなどできると嬉しいです。

  16. Cursor leaves folder name field after creating new folder

    I've found two bugs in the we-based box app. These have both been happening for a while now... several months at least.

    First, when you create a new folder, you can no longer just start typing the name, as the cursor leaves the Folder Name field upon creation of a new folder. Having to click back in the field is a bit of a pain.

    Second, often when I'm uploading something - particularly if it's hundreds of megabytes, or part of a larger upload, after finishing the list of uploads, it will begin uploading the list again. I've uploaded a…

  19. Update "Not Part of Company" Text to Look Like a Button

    When you share a folder or document with a client who is not a part of your organization they receive an email, they then create a login, they are then sent to a page that says "Company uses your network username and password to login to Box. Continue to login to Box through your network." There is then a Continue button and then text that read "Not part of Company" All 66 of my clients have clicked on the button and not on the text because the text does not look click-able. It would be fantastic if that text could…

  20. Shared link expiry notification to link generator

    Today shared link expiry notification is sent only to Shared Link Owner which is not practically sound. Pls upgrade service to send the shared link expiry notification to Link generator along with Shared Link Owner.
