  1. Box for Office - Access to Collections

    Now that we can organise our files in Box using Collections, it would be good to be able to access this functionality in the Office Apps. This is 'mainly' relevant to the Outlook Box add-in that comes as part of Box for Office for when you want to save to Box or insert from Box.
    Excel/Word/PowerPoint - I would argue that the best experience is opening from Edge/Chrome using Box Edit.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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。

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Whitelisting Access Using Managed User Groups

    Companies frequently hire contractors and provide them with company email addresses to access internal networks and applications. This creates an issue with contractors having visibility into an entire folders and not just the projects/folders that apply to them. Shield's whitelisting capabilities allow us to limit external email domains, but because contractors are given a company email domain the whitelisting capabilities do not apply.

    We would like to be able to create a "Consultants" Managed User Group and whitelist access to break waterfall permission for internal Managed User Groups.

  12. 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.

  13. I would like to see the "running application" pop-up automatically removed after the application is opened.

    When you open a native Office application in Box Edit, Box displays the message "Running application".

    The above message remains even after the file is opened, but it's hard to tell if the file is open or not, so can you change the function so that it disappears automatically after the application is launched in Office?

    【日本語】------------------------------------------------------------
    Box EditでOffice系のネイティブアプリを開いた際に"アプリケーションを起動しています"というメッセージがBoxには表示されます。

    上記メッセージはファイルが開いた後も残り続けますが、ファイルが開けているかどうかが分かり辛いため、Officeでアプリが起動された後、自動で消えるように機能を変更して頂けますでしょうか?

  14. 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。)

  15. 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。

  16. I don't want to show only "Everyone who knows the link" in the tenant settings. I only want to see "Company Users" and "Invited Users Only".

    There are three types of shared links as follows
    All users who know the link
    Company users
    Invited users only

    Of these three types, the current tenant settings are as follows
    ・Show all three types
    ・Show only invited users
    The following two patterns are available.

    Please make it possible to set the following two types of settings instead of only showing "everyone who knows the link".
    Company users
    Invited users only

    The background of the request is that we want to create a folder that all users in the company who use Box can access.
    The reason for the request…

  17. 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.

  18. First search with detaled contents filters

    Currently the initial search for Box items can be filtered by only three types of contents, then you can squeeze the first search results with more detailed filters, like tags or size etc.
    It would be better to be able to use those detailed filters from the beginning.

  19. Support Free Form Handwriting in Box Notes

    Box Notes needs fully embrace digital hand writing support, especially on mobile like with the Apple Pencil on the iPad. This is a fast growing form of taking notes now that many tables and phones support some sort of pen-based input. To be clear this is separate from pen-based annotation support Box now has I am talking about real digital note taking? I use app called Notability (www.gingerlabs.com) and they have executed this very well and already have a Box integration. I would go as far as to say that Box should buy Notability. They already have a…

  20. Allow AppUser in developer sandbox to use API to invite groups to folders in production.

    User groups belong to the production, and production-ready applications are not supported.
    Therefore, we cannot invite groups to folders in production.
