    The ability to exclude Box Drive and Box Sync synchronization processes and file opened downloads in the download policy of Box Governance options

    The download policy of the Box Governace option also detects the synchronization process in Box Sync and Box Drive, as well as the downloading of files when they are opened.
    Therefore, it is not possible to detect only those downloads that are intended by the user.
    By adding the Box Sync and Box Drive synchronization process and a setting to exclude downloads when a file is opened, you can detect and monitor large numbers of user-initiated downloads.

  2. Rename items and custom order in Collections

    Collections are great! Now the possibility to customize the display order as well as to rename items without affecting the actual folder/file name would be great additions

    Thanks for the feedback. Currently, collections are sorted by 1) Favorites and 2) personal Collections in alphabetical order. We do not have plans currently to allow renaming items or sorting order.

  3. Allow group administrators of SSO-enabled tenants to change the email addresses of group members

    According to the information provided by following link,
    group administrators are authorised to change the email addresses of managed users.

    *
    Link:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043692374

    Manage group member accounts:
    Edit non-admin user accounts in the Managed Users tab, including user name, email, storage, and settings.
    *
    In the case of tenants using SSO,
    only the administrator and co-administrator can change a managed user's email address.

    In this case, the group administrator cannot change the email address of the group member.

    However, in a tenant with a very large number of users,
    it is very difficult for the administrator/co-administrator to complete all the…

  4. Make available an email address that consists of only numbers

    In our file request settings, the "Email address" is set as mandatory.
    Users whose email address consists of only numbers will be marked "Invalid email address" and will not be able to upload.
    In the current specification, users of companies that use email addresses consisting of only numbers cannot upload.

    Make sure that an email address consisting of only numbers is recognized as a valid email address.

    ファイルリクエストの設定にて「メールアドレス」入力を必須にしています。
    メールアドレスが数字のみで構成されているユーザーは「無効なメールアドレス」と表示され、アップロードできません。
    現在の仕様では、数字のみで構成されたメールアドレスを利用している企業のユーザーはアップロードが行えません。

    数字のみで構成されたメールアドレスが有効なメールアドレスとして認識されるようにしてください。

  5. 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…

  7. Allow users to share built workflows

    Allow workflow builders to share their workflows with each other. Currently workflows need to be rebuilt by each user whereas it would save a lot of time to be able to share these workflows that have already been built.

  8. Offer preview of images for Box Drive or Box Sync.

    As a designer, when working on a publication, it would be helpful to be able to have a preview of images saved in Box for quicker identification directly from the Desktop Box Drive. Right now, we have to preview with Finder, which is an additional step and makes the process cumbersome. Thank you for your consideration.

  9. The ability to have an option to change the font color

    On the new UI, the font color versus the brand custom color makes it difficult to read. Would like to have an option to select the font color by customer

  11. Launch workflow at end of retention policy

    There should be an option to launch a workflow process when a retention policy expires. This would allow for use cases such as moving the file to an archive, destruction approval, etc.

  13. Open shared links in Windows Explorer

    It would be great having the option for shared links to be opened in the Windows Explorer directly (if Box Drive / Box Sync is installed). Today, when a shared link is clicked, e.g. on Slack, it opens in the web browser, adding complexity to the workflow (e.g. having to log in, limited editing functionality, etc.). Most of our team today revert to clicking the shared link just to identify the location of the file in the browser, then finding and opening the file manually on Box Drive.

  14. Integration of Collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console)

    Integration of Collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console)

    The collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console) seem to treat inactive users differently, and the group page intentionally excludes inactive users and only includes active users.
    The Collaborators list page in the web app does not.

    Please consolidate the handling of inactive users as this specification is confusing to users and to administrators.

  15. Allow editing of annotations

    Sometimes I want to change the comment I left with an annotation. But the only option I get is to delete the annotation. So I'm forced to copy the previous text, delete the old annotation, and create a new one. That's annoying!

  16. don't show files till all the files are uploaded

    I often send files to coworkers and I dislike that the file is downloadable to them before it's actually fully downloaded to box. This ends up creating a corrupt/ non-workable file for them. Also I think the files should not show up on their end before all the files are completely downloaded, in batch uploads because I will have coworkers then say only some of the files are downloaded and it looks like a mistake when it's just still uploading. Thanks!

  20. Setting tags for each folder

    For example, I would like to see the setting inherited by a specific folder and its subfolders, similar to the "Override default settings for this folder and all subfolders" in the email notification in the folder settings.

    In a tenant with many end users, tags can be disorganized.
    For example, if you try to create a tag for December, some users may find that there are many ways to describe the month, and when they try to search for a tag, they may not be able to find the desired tag.
    For this reason, many tenants restrict the creation of…
