  1. Service Accounts should be rate limited differently than user accounts

    Currently, when you use a service account to access Box API's, in order to get access to content you need to use the As-User header "impersonate" users in order to access the files that are owned by then.

    So if you are doing something like using a service account to crawl through all the files in a folder in box, you would need to use the As-User header in order to impersonate a user who owns/has access to each file while doing it.

    But there is a huge problem here is that the rate limiting is done using the As-User…

  2. Get documents into and out of Box Notes from other formats

    My organization likes Box Notes for their online-collaboration support. But when we have existing documents, we can't get them into a Box Note. And if we want to get them out, we can't do that either.

    Add import and export support to Box Notes. I'd be delighted with Markdown, but my organization can work with just about any open format. Or publish your own proprietary format. XML or JSON, we don't care! Just make it possible to get documents into and out of Box Notes.

  3. Device Trust documentation and error message should explicitly describe encryption requirements for external drives

    The Device Trust message is misleading as it states “All internal disks must be encrypted” when it should state “All disks must be encrypted”. In addition, the language under Setting-Up-Device-Trust-Security-Requirements here https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044194993 states "Require all disks to be encrypted: Helps protect against data loss by requiring disk encryption software" but it only describes in detail internal disk encryption. It would be helpful if it stated here that all external disks must also be encrpyted.

  5. New Color Scheme

    The new left pane color scheme makes the menu items more difficult to read. In the prod environment the Favorites icons are easily recognized by their color, but in the beta UI they all seem to blend together.

  6. Box Notes and Collections

    The Box Notes interface, at the moment, only works with Favourites. It'll be great if you could choose a collection to put your Box Note into, directly from the Box Notes interface, as opposed to having to navigate to the Box folder where the note is, then select the collection.

  7. Notifications as a Relay workflow outcome

    Add the ability to create a specific notification as an outcome/step in Relay.

    I.E. "If step 2 of workflow is not complete after 5 days notify xyz person"

    or

    "once workflow is completed notify this group".

  9. Run report to demonstrates permanent deletion of files

    I really need the ability to run a report that demonstrates that my files have been permanently deleted.

    Given requirements in the various data privacy laws across the world, our company may be required to delete data or files at any time, and provide proof of deletion. However, once something is deleted from our Box account, it sits in Trash for 30 days before being permanently purged. (And, if I understand correctly, the data may be recoverable for 14 days after that?)

  11. Auto overwrite if the file is uploaded with the same name in the folder via File Request.

    In the current spec, the file with the same name in the folder is uploaded via File Request, the file name is automatically changed to containing date and time.
    I want the option to overwrite the file when it has the same name of existing files.

  12. About setting up a file request

    In the file request link, the setting screen for the name and email address fields has been changed.
    Previously, the "Settings" section of the file request included a section for setting a name and email address.
    The way it's currently set up, it seems like there are more setup steps that prompt you to enter your name and email address.

    As before, please improve the file request so that it can be configured to require a name or email address in the "Settings" section of the file request as well.

    ファイルリクエストリンクの、氏名、メールアドレスの入力欄の設定画面が変更されています。
    以前は、ファイルリクエストの「設定」項目に、氏名、メールアドレスの入力欄を設定する箇所がありました。
    現在の設定方法では、氏名、メールアドレスの入力欄を設定する手順が以前より複雑になっているように見受けられます。

    以前同様、ファイルリクエストの「設定」から、氏名、メールアドレスの入力欄を設定できるように改善してください。

  13. View Tags in Collections

  14. Create Relay Tasks based on dates defined in metadata

    We would like to create tasks based on dates that have been assigned to the document through metadata. For example a task would be created on September 20 if that date was specified in metadata. We have several scenarios where documents "expire" and we need to renew them. These dates are variable based on when the original document is loaded into Box.

  15. Automatic email response for file request submitter

    Would like a feature whereby the person submitting files using Box File Request receives an automatic confirmation email with a customizable message. For example, after the submitter uploads files using the File Request web widget, that person gets a email to the effect of, "Thank you for contacting us. A team member will review your submittal and follow up within 24 hours." The person would be required to provide an email address but not required to have a Box account. Many of our external customers send us application materials using File Request, and then they contact us separately wanting to…

  16. Convert BoxNote to PDF, DOCX, etc...

    BoxNotes would be much more useful if there was an ability to able to generate a PDF or other document format that can be stored in a more traditional method in Box. Some customer that work in the regulated space can't use BoxNotes for various reasons. But, in many cases there is an issue with the fact that BoxNotes does not follow the same retention capabilities we have in Governance. Also, Keysafe does not support BoxNotes, so it may be a workaround if BoxNotes were archivable.

    The initial idea would be to support PDF generation, but i can also see…

  17. Add header and title to Box Note table feature

    The customer would like to be able to fix certain parts of Box Notes to be visible at all times.
    e.g header(row, column etc) of tables ,the title of section

    As you fill in Box Notes, the page scrolls down naturally and then parts of Box Notes above become invisible whether they are a "header" or a "title" of table.
    The customer wants these to be visible at all times even if you scroll down.

    An example would be like the "subject" part at the top of an email in Outlook, which is something that is always visible regardless of…

  19. Please create a BoxCLI that can be used by general users.

    Currently, the BoxCLI is only available to administrators.
    We have received requests from non-administrative Box users to do their own work from the command line.
    This is a very strong request.
    Please create a BoxCLI that can be used by general users.

  20. login page Customization

    The login page is very confusing for our external collaborators. Despite the creation of "How to log on to Box" with pictures, external collaborators still click on the wrong link as the "Continue" button (for our managed users) is very large compare to the small font link for the external collaborators. The natural instinct is to click on "Continue" which gives the external collaborator an error since they are not part of the "managed users" and will not be able to SSO to our Box. Our staff is having to help our external customer on regular basis.
    Can the login…
