  1. New Files take 10 minutes to appear in the search (Content Explorer)

    It takes ~10 minutes for a newly added file to appear in the search of the Content Explorer UI Element. In the meantime, if you attempt to search for that file based on the name, it displays no results, making it look like a bug. It can take even longer if the servers are busy (it took ~20 minutes for a file I uploaded to appear in a search one time)

    Please look for ways to reduce the turnaround on this. A suggestion: the file should be available to search by name right away, if it takes ~10 minutes to…

  2. Improvement plans about privacy settings of folders

    Are there any improvement plans below?

    BoxNote is not available when a folder is set privacy - "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" - active.

    OfficeOnline is not available when you set folder privacy - "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" - active.

    I often want to refer to Boxnote and MS Office documents for the purpose of reference much data and information with our business partners.

  4. Time based relay tasks

    Support time based triggers in Relay. For example, 180 days after an item has been uploaded to a folder either delete the file or move it to another location.

  7. Count previewing large Video files as "preview" in User Statistics Report

    Count previewing large Video files as "preview" in User Statistics Report.

    Sometimes previewing large Video files is not counted as "preview" in User Statistics Report.

    It should be counted.

  8. Report the history of Apps enabled / disabled in Individual Application Controls

    We would like to be able to get a history of apps that we have enabled / disabled in the Individual Application Controls of Admin Console.
    This is under Box Apps & Integrations within the Apps settings menu.
    Currently it cannot be exported from reports etc.

  9. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. When we open a PDF with the Box app (Box for EMM) on iPad, the Activity column appears on the right side of the screen.

    When we open a PDF with the Box app (Box for EMM) on iPad, the Activity column appears on the right side of the screen.
    It takes a lot of work to maximize this PDF, as you have to make one click each time.
    We would like to prevent Activity from being displayed by default when previewing a PDF.

    If we use our iPad vertically, Activity will not be displayed, but it is assumed that we will use it horizontally.

  15. Proper 2-factor authentication with TOTP not SMS

    Using SMS for 2-factor authentication is oudated and insecure. Using TOTP is an industry standard and should be implemented.

  16. Box Drive: Support ARM processors

    The new Microsoft Surface Pro X uses an ARM based processor and Box Drive doesn't support ARM processors. I'm sure use of the ARM processors will increase rapidly since it allows for much longer battery life and support cellular data connections.

  17. Two-factor authentication with authenticator apps

    It should be possible for 2FA login to be via an authenticator app as opposed to SMS. This is arguably more secure and more convenient and something competitors offer.

  18. Keep third party's login token or credentials when logging out from Box Drive

    Users need to log in to a web gateway before logging in to Box Drive.

    If they log out, they need to login to the gateway again.

    In WebApp, they don’t need to re-login the gateway after logging out from Box.

    Therefore, Box should have any way to prevent this.

  19. See a longer duration for the pop-up that appears at the top of the screen when moving or copying is performed.

    We would like to see a longer duration for the pop-up that appears at the top of the screen when you move or copy.
    It would be great if it could be set up on a per-tenant basis if possible.

    If we accidentally manipulate it, we'll get flustered.
    We need a little more time to calmly click the "Undo" button.

    <移動・コピー時に画面上部に表示されるポップアップの持続時間を長くして欲しい>

    移動・コピー時に画面上部に表示されるポップアップの持続時間を長くして欲しいです。
    可能であれば、テナント単位で設定できるとさらに良いと思います。

    誤って操作してしまった場合、慌ててしまいます。
    冷静に「元に戻す」ボタンをクリックするには、もう少し時間が必要です。

  20. Add a report that lists metadata set for folders and files.

    There are many metadata templates, and each users can set them.
    In this situation, being able to see in lists what metadatas are actually applied to which files/folders and what values ​​are set can be very helpful in managing contents and metadata.
