  1. Custom Terms of Service - Prompting External users to accept terms after change to terms

    It has been noted that if the text of theCustom Terms of Service is changed for internal users, internal users are prompted to re-accept the new terms. However for external users, if the text of the terms is changed, the external users is not prompted to accept the new terms until they are invited to a new folder. Can the external users be prompted to accept the new terms once the text is changed?

  4. Search contents of Box notes (or other documents) even when encryption is enabled

    I understand that if data is encrypted outside of Box (as is likely the case for any enterprise user), the search functionality for Box is limited to file names only. Can Box add support for search within documents (Box notes at a minimum, but ideally other document types) even in the case where the enterprise user has encryption enabled? Not having this functionality makes search useless for many of our use cases as a large development team.

  5. Exclusive control

  6. I want to divide the public folder setting of the shared folder

    I want to open folders to an unspecified number of people in the company.

    When I contacted the administrator, he said that he could not do it because there are only the following two setting values.
    1."Anyone with the link", "Company users", "Invited users only"
    2."Invited users only"

    Only the people in the company need to see it, so I would like to divide them into the following three settings.
    1."Anyone with the link", "Company users", "Invited users only"
    2."Company users", "Invited users only"
    3."Invited users only"

    If you can divide it into three, you can get permission because you…

  7. File Request - Assign to Other Collaborator Permission Levels

    Please allow Editors to send File Requests. Currently, only Owners and Co-Owners can send file requests. It would be extremely helpful if Editors could as well. In our organization, we have many with editor rights that could take advantage of this feature and would gain great efficiency . Making these users a Co-Owner will not work with our current permissions segregation.

  8. 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.

  9. Global ability to lock all files that are opened

    We want all files "locked" when opened so that any other user would be notified that the file is opened by another user and they can look in "read-only" view.

  10. Ability to filter events by "Affected" on user activity report

    We would like to have the ability to filter events by "Affected" column (currently, user and affected folder/file are only available filter options).
    For e.g., for "Add login app" event, device information is logged in "Affected" column, and so having this filter option will help us identify new login from unintended devices and improve monitoring.

  11. Increase the 10,000 Limit for Groups

    Currently if you create more than 10,000 groups, the groups at the bottom of the list alphabetically cannot be searched for when creating a collaboration.

  12. Display Shield classification labels by default beside the name of each item in a folder

    When viewing the contents of a folder, it would be beneficial to the user experience to see which items are classified and how without needing to select the item or attempt to preview it.

  13. Ability to create an index of a folder structure

    1) A way to create an index of a folder structure to make it easier for outside collaborators to get an idea of whats down the folder tree. We’re looking for some sort of index (like a table of contents) in an orderly fashion for a particular set of folders. I ran a files and folders report but as just an excel sheet it was relatively useless as a table of contents

    2) A way to schedule a report to run daily or weekly

  15. Add an identifier that ADFS can find that app is Box for EMM in User-Agent.

    Could you please consider adding an identifier that ADFS can find that app is Box for EMM in User-Agent.

    We found Box for EMM does not include any identifier like "Box for EMM" in its User-Agent when doing authentication with MAM checked-in. We just only allow access that "Box for EMM" includes in User-Agent. Therefore, ADFS cannot determine whether an application is Box for EMM or not and the user is unable to access from Box for EMM.

  16. Box Tools - Excel as default application for CSV and XLS

    We would like Box Edit to have Excel as the default application for all excel files, including CSV.

    Right now we run into an issue with CSV files where it is necessary to perform an operation to copy and then paste to Excel from Notepad. (Since opening CSV files might cause garble due to a character code (UTF-8), we are opening Notepad first and then open Excel files)
    Another workaround would be editing the registry which is risky and inconvenient - which is why we would like Edit to automatically open CSV with Excel as the default

  17. Box/MS Teams integration - prevent native file sharing

    Need to add an explanation to the webpage on integrating the Box app with MS Teams:

    Box file sharing is not practical in Teams if users are still able to attach files using the built-in Sharepoint capabilities of Teams. Box needs to explain how to turn off the native file sharing in Teams, thereby forcing users to use Box.

    Apparently, there is a way to turn off the ability for teams to create SP doc libraries.

  19. Allow the use of Linux devices as approved devices.

    We had Linux based user using Box web console and as of the July update, they are no longer able to access Box. I would like to see Linx OS be added to the approved Operating Systems list in the Admin Console for enterprise settings.

  20. Shield reports suspicious IP location when opening files through O365. Adds lots of unnecesary noise

    In Shield, when a user previews/opens a file to Office Online it tracks as a suspicious IP location. It would be great if it could be separated and designated a lower priority than a genuine account compromise. Just a suggestion to clean up the Shield alert queue
