  1. Please implement the function to restore the contents in the trash to a folder other than the original folder location.

    Please implement the function to restore the contents in the trash to a folder other than the original folder location.

    Currently, when restoring files/folders from the trash, it will be restored to the same folder as before the deletion.
    If we accidentally delete a large number of items that we plan to move, it will take a considerable amount of time to restore and then move, and the items in the move process (delete / move / copy) will be temporarily locked, which will hinder our business.
    We are confident that if we can select the restore location, which will…

  2. Don't point users to the EID's Primary Admin when users try to access a disabled app

    Don't point users to the EID's Primary Admin when users try to access a disabled app. This is problematic for our larger customers as it prompts the user to reach out to an email address that may not be monitored or inundates the admin with what should be HelpDesk tickets.

  3. Mentions

    Specify multiple people at once when commenting on a comment.

    You can use @mentions to notify users of files in Box, but I think it is extremely inefficient to have to enter the user name from @ every time.

    However, we think it is extremely inefficient to have to type the username from @ every time.
    For example, it would be very convenient to be able to specify @mentions with a single click or by copying and pasting.

    (和訳)
    Box上のファイルに対し、@メンションでユーザーに通知することが出来ますが、毎回@からユーザー名を一から入力する必要がするのは極端に作業効率が悪いと捉えています。

    例えばメールの返信の様な形でワンクリックで指定出来たり、
    コピー&ペーストで指定できるなど、簡単に@メンションが付けられると非常に便利だと思います。

  4. Please add Linux to the support for Box.

    【Background】
    As we use many Linux servers, the total size of the log files is also large.
    Please add Linux as supported, as we want to save the log files stored on the Linux server to the Box.

    【Request】
    Box does not support Linux.
    In the past it was possible to access the Box via WebDAV, but this is no longer supported.
    Please add Linux to the support for Box.
    It would be preferable if it could be mounted like WebDav.
    If the folder on the Box can be mounted on Linux, the application can simply change the specification of…

  6. I want to restrict the installation of the desktop application by user

    Is it possible to add a feature to the management console that allows me to limit the installation of desktop applications (Box Drive, Box Note, etc.) per managed user?

    Once this is achieved, there will be more control over which desktop applications a corporate user can install.

  7. Invite users to file request

    We would like to inform our users that we have created a file request area for them. As soon as we create a file request we would like to be able to send a number of users a notification that they should upload their files there.

    Currently we have to manually copy the URL into an email to inform people, which breaks the flow. We would like the same functionality we see when creating shared links.

  8. Ability to automatically remove deleted users from admin console settings

    Currently, you can enable features like Mark for Offline and folder-level metadata cascading by adding a user to the setting on admin console. When a user is deleted, the deleted user is left listed in the setting. We would like the deleted user be automatically removed from the settings.

  9. Shield classification user permissions

    Request to make classification application settings specific to the classification. Currently, the setting for who can apply/remove a classification is for all classifications, but there are cases where it would be helpful that a classification to be only applied by owners and other where co-owner, or even editor would be allowed to apply certain classifications.

    Examples:
    1. A classification tied to a Shield access control rule that only owners can apply or remove
    2. A classification tied to a Shield access control rule that owner/co-owners can apply or remove
    3. A classification identifying a type of content that owners/co-owner/editors can…

  10. Limit the SFDC tenant which can be integrated via Box for salesforce to the one allowed by Box Admin

    In the current Box for Salesforce integration, Box Admin can't limit the Salesforce tenant which can be integrated and Box for Salesforce integration can be setup with normal Box accounts so normal employee can set up Box for Salesforce by using their normal Box account and Salesforce Developer edition.

    Even if the company prohibit to access Box from a private computer from home or outside the company network, once this integration was setup and access token was give to Box for Salesforce application a user can retrieve the contents via Box for Salesforce from a private computer.

    So this can…

  11. Show the password when typing to avoid typo's

    Add an option for the user to see the password they are typing to avoid typos when sending to the client. At the moment, there is no option to see what you have typed until the client is telling you that the password doesnt work. Especially with caps, symbols etc.

  12. Co-Owner should be able to confirm the destination of the file (or the user who operated it)./Co-ownerにもファイルの移動先(あるいは、操作したユーザー)確認をできるようにしてほし

    We know that if we want to know where a folder has been moved to, we can ask the administrator to output it from the report.
    However, We would like the Co-owner to be able to check the destination of the file (or the user who operated it) in case of urgency.

    (In Japanese)
    フォルダの移動先を知りたい場合、管理者に問い合わせる事でレポートから出力する事が可能である事ですが
    急ぐ場合にCo-ownerにもファイルの移動先(あるいは、操作したユーザー)確認をできるようにしてほしいです。

  13. Provide an Endpoint to Manage Public/Private Key Pair

    To retire and generate a new JWT application's public/private key pair, manual intervention is needed by both the Developer Application owner and the Box Admin. It is very common to require periodic rotation of RSA keys and is often required by internal security standards.

  14. Email File Request Link from Box

    Add ability to email file request links directly from Box (similar to collaboration invites). This would allow customers to audit who sent out file request link/ when.

  15. Take action on user based on Threat Detection Shield Rule

    Extending threat detection ALERTS to take action on a user's access would be very valuable. I've heard lots of customers request having a user's account deactivated if they access Box from a suspicious location. Right now, there is not a way to do this through the core Box application, it has to be done through custom scripting or with another tool.

  16. Avatar API Driven Capability

    Avatar —

    Customer would love to have the API Driven Capability to Upload to the user’s Avatar, and might require additional API parameters like “center point” to ensure a portrait is centered.

    Customer stores Avatar/Portraits of their people in centralized personnel databases, which is the key store for that data. Their users engage with it there for uniformity. Also API Driven would allow them to build Avatar Processes into their Native Mobile Apps that also impact their Box Experience in a positive manner.

    They already have several workflows that output Avatar to outside systems upon change internally.

  17. Add "remove collaborator" option as option in a Relay workflow

    In the same vein as being able to Add a collaborator as part of a Relay workflow, it would be nice to also Remove a collaborator as well. Customer would like to Add a collaborator as part of a workflow, have that collaborator do their part, then have them removed as they no longer need access to the content going forward.

  18. Ability to logout and delete cache from Box Drive on OS reboot

    Currently, it is necessary to logout/login to clear the cache and errors, but this is troublesome.
    The burden of performing this operation on a regular basis is on the end user.

    It would be easier to use if the logout/deletion of the cache could be done on OS reboot.
    (If it automatically re-logon after restarting OS, that would be even better)

    現状ではキャッシュやエラーをクリアするためにログアウト/ログインする必要がありますが、これは手間がかかります。
    この操作を定期的に行うのはエンドユーザーに負担がかかってしまいます。

    OS の再起動時にログアウト/キャッシュの削除ができればより便利だと思います。
    (OS の再起動後に自動的に再ログオンするようになれば更に良いと思います。)

  19. Request about 'People in your company' for shared links

    There is a permission called "People in your company" for shared links.
    When a link is set to "People in your company", it actually can be viewed by "People in your company" AND by "Invited people" there as well.
    Some end users missed out the fact that those "invited people" would also be viewing it with the generated link.

    Please change the name of the item to "People in your company and Invited people only".

    ご要望:
    共有リンクの「会社のユーザー」という権限があります。
    「会社のユーザー」権限を設定した共有リンクは、実は「会社のユーザー」だけでなく「招待されたユーザー」も閲覧可能です。
    エンドユーザーによっては、この「招待されたユーザー」も生成された共有リンクで閲覧可能であることを見逃すことがあります。

    そのため、項目名を「会社のユーザーと招待されたユーザー」に変更して欲しいです。

  20. Ability to save search filter conditions

    I would appreciate if the previous settings for contents filters could be saved so that I can call and use it when searching items with similar criteria.
    Frequently using the same condition to search files, so I think it could improve the work efficiency to use saved filter settings.
