  2. Supporting Text Format in Box for Outlook

    Currently, Box for Outlook is only available in HTML format, which is the only format supported by Outlook and OWA.
    Some companies make only plain text available.
    In this case, Box for Outlook cannot be used, so please make sure that the text format is also available.

    For companies that only use OWA, Box for Outlook is a great way to share data on Box.
    This is expected to improve work efficiency.

    (日本語)
    現在、Box for OutlookはOutlookおよびOWAでサポートされている形式はHTML形式のみです。
    企業によってはプレーンテキストのみを利用可能としています。
    この場合、Box for Outlookが利用できないため、テキスト形式も利用できるようにしてください。

    OWAのみを利用している企業にとって、Box上のデータを共有する手段の一つであるBox for Outlookは非常に最適です。
    これによって作業効率化が期待できます。

  3. I want to make it so that access statistics for operations by administrators are not left behind (stealth).

    【Current Specifications】

    1. Log in to the target user as a proxy and access the site.
      → The operation by the administrator is recorded as the access statistics of the proxy-logged user.

    2. Access from the "Contents" function of the management console.
      → The operation by the administrator is recorded as the access statistics of the administrator.

    【background】

    When a user deviates from the organization's rules (service rules, security rules, etc.) in the use of Box, a case is envisioned in which the administrator wants to view or download files owned by the user concerned as evidence of the deviation.
    If access…

  4. Sharing a Collection

    I understand that collections are meant to be a user specific setting, however, it would be great to have the ability to share a collection with a co-worker.

  5. Run User Activity Report with API

    We would like to be able to run User Activity Report through the API.
    Users, groups and affected folders/files can be selected as a filter to export/run this report against. But today, keyboard typings and mouse clicks are required to select each filtering, which would be unrealistic to specify tens or hundreds of users, groups, folders and/or files.
    Thus, We would need API to utilize/filter User Activity Report at scale.

  7. Ability to resize photos uploaded from Box Capture

    The size of the photos taken and uploaded by Box Capture is about 5MB each.
    In addition to Box, we also sync uploaded items to our on-premise server, so there is a capacity control on the server side, and a 5MB image is too large.

    We would like to be able to choose some upper limit of capacity when we take a picture with Box Capture.
    (We would like to have the ability to automatically resize the image when shooting in Box Capture).

    (e.g. high quality mode, standard quality mode, low quality mode, etc.)


    <Box Captureからアップロードされた写真をリサイズする機能>
    Box Captureで撮影し、アップロードされた写真のサイズは、1枚約5MB程度です。
    Boxのほかに、オンプレサーバーにもアップロードしたアイテムを同期しているのでサーバー側に容量の制御があり、5MBの画像は大きすぎます。

  8. Co-admin should be able to login to other co-admin accounts and service accounts

    Box co-admin should have the ability to log into other co-admin accounts and application services accounts to manage content. Today, you rely on using Box APIs or the primary Box admin account. It would be more convenient for coadmins to use the Box webapp instead.

  9. Box for Teams v2: Bunch of files will be shown when the files has shared in direct chat

    When the files has shared in the direct chat, it will be uploaded in "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder on sender side, on the other hand, for the receiver side, files will be listed in the top directory, which leads to list bunch of files in the top directory.

    It would be nice, if the new folder will be created for the each chat under "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder and add collaboration for the folder when the direct chat has started.

  10. Support more preview fonts

    Zinc Group uses fonts that are currently not supported for Box web UI preview, Klavika and Stag. Since these fonts are used extensively in the company's approved document templates, they wish to have them added to the list of supported fonts for preview.

  11. We need to have AND support in Metadata multi-select fields

    There needs to be an option, in searching for Metadata attributes which are multi-select, to choose AND or OR relationships between the chosen attributes.

  12. Highlight Text and Translate the word

    Inside the preview, it would be great when I highlight a text in a file, it would automatically translate the word into a language thats is set on the browser. For example highlighting an English word and translating it into Japanese.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

  13. Boolean search should generate results as part of type ahead query

    Boolean search should generate results as part of type ahead query. Today, we can search for "text AND text2", but it will not generate results until the user submits the full query. This would improve usability.

  14. File request custom theme transparent logo suggestion tooltip

    When putting themes for file request, using logos with existing color backgrounds does not look as clean. It would be great to add a tooltip suggestion to use a transparent logo for the user designing the theme.

  15. Add auto-lock/unlock feature in Box Drive or provide a configuration tool

    Add auto-lock/unlock feature in Box Drive or provide a configuration tool

    In Box Drive v2.21, it is possible to enable the ability to automatically lock/unlock files when they are opened in Box Drive by modifying the registry.
    However, it is difficult for end users to modify the registry, so we would like to see Box Drive include the feature to automatically lock/unlock files, or provide a configuration tool (such as a batch file for registry modification) to modify the registry.

  17. Operation history in box.com/folder/000000000/settings

    There isn't a way yet to see how and when the setting was changed. We're trying to know is who and when and how did the Collaboration and Privacy settings change on Admin Console User Activity reports.

  18. Add the ability for previewer/uploader, viewer, and previewer to preview video files that contain watermarks.

    Currently, due to the specifications in the following article, previewer/uploader, viewer, and previewer cannot preview watermark enabled video files from Box.


    Box Notes, video, audio, flash, .msi, .exe, .zip, and 3D files do not support watermarking. Enabling this feature prevents previewer uploaders, viewers and previewers from viewing these file types.

    Watermarking Files:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044195253


    For company operations, when sharing video files with users outside the company, it is a rule to collaborate and share with users outside the company with previewer.
    Since there are many situations where we want to prohibit downloading and screenshotting, we don't want to be unable to…

  19. Ability to turn off optional message field on shared link email and add collaborator dialogs

    Many customers in regulated industries do NOT like the fact that some email notifications from Box have the ability to enter an optional message that will be included as part of the notification. Because this email bypass the customer email gateway they don't have visibility into what that message is. This feature is a compliance issue and should have the ability to turn it off.

    The Box Compliance Email Archive is not sufficient for some customers and that is why one way to solve this would be disabling the feature.

  20. Use customer's own email gateway to send email notifications

    Many customers in regulated industries do NOT like the fact that email notifications from Box come from the Box Service with a noreply@box.com email address. The emails that Box sends on the user behalf do not go through a customer's email security or e-discovery system thus it creates problems in regulated environment that need to capture ALL communications between internal users and external customers. Box needs to have a configuration where a customer can configure their own SMTP gateway that Box can use to send email notifications with the proper TO and FROM data so they can better document and…
