  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. We want the signed document to remain the document object it was before signing

    Currently, the signed document is created as an new file object so that all the metadata info like comments or task will be gone after signing. We would like to have the ability to keep the info even after signing.

  5. Copy or Duplicate existing groups

    Would appreciate the ability to create copies of existing Groups, mainly for its members - not so much the permissions given to that group.

    My use case: We've got an "ALL" group that has access to numerous folders. There is one user that does not want access to one of those folders. So I'd like to be able to copy the "ALL" group and remove that user, rather than re-create our "ALL" group which has a lot of members.

    There also is no good way to bulk add members to a group. Typing each person is cumbersome, it'd also be…

  6. Ability to send customized emails to different roles in Box Sign

    Ability to send a customized email to each of the various roles on one Sign request. For example, we would like folks with the "Approver" or "Get a Copy" role to receive emails with customized text based on their role in the process that is different from the email text sent to the Signer.

    Additionally, the current email sent to those with the "Approver" role is misleading as it indicates they need to sign something. Can improved automated text be crafted that is more clear that this person is receiving an approval task, rather than a sign task?

    When selecting "only me" as the signer, provide same options to edit fields as when there are additional recipients

  8. Ability to adjust display pictures

    Every time I post my profile picture it is sideways. I've tried changing the pictures direction before uploading it, etc and nothing works. It's totally frustrating. Would love to be able to adjust the picture on the program.

  9. Ability to customize promotion settings

    Please add a setting to not show the promotion that appears when users starts Box Drive.
    That promotion can be confusing because it forces the user to see it even if the company does not allow that feature.

  11. 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

  12. Box Sign - Make PDF form fields fillable

    Box Sign does not currently recognize embedded PDF form fields. You can add a text, date, checkbox, or signature field to a PDF document, but the original form fields are unavailable (but left intact).

    Use case: We ask our contractors to complete IRS W-9 forms using the standard IRS fillable PDF forms. If Box Sign could recognize the embedded fields in the IRS forms, our contractors could fill out, sign, and file the forms in one process. As it is, we will have to send them the fillable PDF form, ask them to fill it in and send it to…

  13. 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.

  14. Support for MacOS Finder Tags (the colored dots) in Box is Needed

    Under Catalina and before Finder Tags worked the same on Box Drive as they would on a local drive.

    Finder Tags are a significant feature for MacOS users and not having them any more is a problem. Many MacOS users depend on Finder Tags in work flows and losing this feature has broken long established processes to manage files.

  15. Box Cataloging Spreadsheet

    I would like a live spreadsheet that shows an outline of our folders and files, who updated them, and when - and that we could add columns to that we manually update. This could be within box or another app.

  20. When a folder is moved to another folder, user would like to receive a notification when the folder is moved from the folder settings.

    I would like to receive notifications in the following three cases.

    1. Notification when a user is moved to another folder. (Reason: Because there are many cases where other users are moved by mistake and there is no way to immediately confirm the move.)

    2. Notification when an error occurs while moving an item. (Reason: To be able to determine the situation in which the move failed so that the next action can be taken more easily.)

    3.Notification after the move is completed. (Reason: To be able to confirm that the move is complete, so that it can be judged that the…
