  1. Allow Relay notifications to include manually entered email addresses instead of limiting the list to existing collaborators

    Currently the Relay system will only allow notifications to be sent to existing collaborators or users. There should be a way to allow any manually entered email address to be a notification destination. This would allow for group or shared email accounts to be a notification destination. Group email addresses or shared email accounts may not exist as specific collaborators but still could be useful for notifications.

  2. I want the BoxSign signature log to be able to apply the tenant's set time zone.

    I want the BoxSign signature log to be able to apply the tenant's set time zone.

    Currently, the signature log is written in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
    I would like to be able to set the tenant's time zone to make the log content explicit.
    If the UTC is left as it is, there is a high possibility that the approval time will be pointed out in internal audits due to the difference from the actual time, as it is different from the time that we use regularly.
    In addition, we are concerned that it will increase the man-hours of…

  3. Password protected feature to Box Sign

    Box allows to send a password to the signer for the signing purposes but it is not kep on after that. I recommend adding password protected feature on the documents sent from Box Sign, so any sensitive data could be protected.

  4. Lack of reports on copy operations to external folders

    We strongly request the improvement of the display specification when the log of copying an item to an external tenant's folder is output to the report.

    In the current specification, when the destination folder is an external tenant, the report only shows the copied file as "External File".
    In other words, we can determine "who" copied "when" and "some file," but we cannot determine "where" and "what" was copied.

    We believe this is a major problem in monitoring and preventing information leaks.
    I thought it was one of Box's great strengths that most of the operation logs are stored and…

  5. Ability to recognize a similar document to prepopulate signature, text, and other fields

    In Docusign, we can upload a document and place the signature and text box fields required to save it as a template. Then later, when we upload that same document generated from our software (that is populated with the deal specific information), it recognizes a matching document as a template, so it places the fields without us having to manually place them. Using a template doesn't work since each contract has different information and it would be more information to manually transcribe than generate and place signatures.

  6. Ability to manually update Box Tools

    If Box Tools fails to update automatically, you may need to install or reinstall the latest version of the installer (after uninstalling Box Tools).

    Depending on the company, installation may require administrator privileges on the PC, and updating may not be easy.

    Therefore, it is very convenient to develop a button that can be updated without installation as a standard function of Box Tools.

  7. Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    To improve report performance, Box migrated legacy to new data platform on collaboration report recently. However, new one will take about 24 hours to reflect latest data into exported report. It could be harder for admin to audit new collaboration on enterprise using report feature. There are two request for this change :

    • Make sure that admin knows when the exported report is as of
    • Reflect much faster like User Detail Report which can reflect 1 hours ago

  8. Provide appropriate warning before moving a folder to a different owner in Box Drive UI

    In Box Drive, moving folder to a different owner looks like it works (a folder dragged to new Box location in Box Drive/Finder appears in the new location), but it actually fails and an OS notification pops up only briefly. The suggested fix (if the user notices the problem and can find the message about it) is also not ideal -- Box wants you to manually move the folder back yourself, but if you don't see this message right away then you might not remember where you moved it from.

    Ideally, this would warn the user about the change in…

  11. Display folder sync warning message and revers sync from local folders

    Dear Admins,
    would it be possible to have an option , warning about all data deletion or when whole box folder is being removed from box, be shown before sync. with local folders? This would prevent data loss.
    As well option to sync. from local copy will enable option to easily restore data from Box, this would be appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Klara Satinova,
    Kyndryl

  12. Ability to customize collaborator privilege

    Want to automate the task of "when the viewer / uploader notices the need to update a particular locked file, ask the editor to confirm and approve the file update"?
    To do this, from the perspective of user permissions, you need collaborator permissions that remove one permission from the viewer / uploader and grant one permission.

    -Collaborator authority that grants manual workflow startup authority to viewer / uploader authority and cannot unlock files.

    By realizing this authority, the following workflow can be automated in combination with Box Relay.

    (1) Lock the approved document managed by the editor.
    (2) The viewer…

  13. Ability to add branding to Box Sign notifications

    Could fall under this request as well "Allow custom logo in Box notifications" - but just had a customer surface the need to add a logo to their Sign notifications, which would escalate the urgency to complete and return the document to the next signature.

  16. Auto lock/unlock for read-only file.

    Currently, BoxDrive works with AutoLockUnlock=1 as below.

    1. When we open a read-only settings(Windows OS file property), it is locked automatically.
    2. And then, when we close the file, the read-only setting is gone.

    Please improve as below.

    1. When we open a read-only settings(Windows OS file property), it is not locked automatically.
    2. And then, when we close the file, the read-only setting keeps.

    Best,

  18. Move checked off items to the bottom of list

    It would be fantastic if you have a list in Box note, the items you mark as "complete" get moved to the bottom of the list.
