  1. Company Intranet Functionality

    Would be great if Box had a company intranet functionality similar to platforms like Simppler, Igloo, Claromentis, Jostle, etc... Many of them integrate with Box, but one stop shopping is always preferred. A digital workplace is so important now that so many are working remotely. Bringing all of our apps under one roof (e.g., Box, Salesforce, Teams, Zoom, Yammer...), giving employees a portal/hub to go every morning to improve communication, lighten the inbox, providing a place to hold not only our knowledge but our policies, forms, news, process management for things like onboarding new hires, training staff, etc...

  2. Long live server side auth master access token

    A server side authentication token that is long lived and provides access to all endpoints, not just read and write like JWT auth. I have posted a support ticket here describing my needs: https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/1500000258202-Server-Side-Authentication-Scopes

  3. Ability to update files by pathname

    Instead of having to provide a fileId to perform an action on any given file, it would be nice to be able to pass a pathname as an alternative option

  4. Tag files from iOS devices

    Be able to tag files from iOS devices within the Box app. This will be helpful for people on the go who want to be able to do tasks from their iPhone or iPad.

  5. Box Content Explorer: Resize Column Widths

    Box Content Explorer currently supports dynamically sized columns with the browser window width, but user-resizable columns are needed to accommodate large items' names.

  6. 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…

  7. We need Box enablement to all the App user to "see" the refreshes of documents periodically

    We want app user functionality to crawl a given Box folder and refresh every 24 hrs so we always have the latest document ingested into Watson Discovery.

  8. Improve wording on Box Edit confirmation prompt

    Improve wording on Box Edit confirmation prompt

    When a file is opened with Box Edit from UI elements, we display a confirmation prompt that asks user to proceed or not (this is UI elements only and not displayed when opening file from webapp). Currently, the prompt lets you choose approve/reject, but we want this text changed to OK/cancel (just like other Windows apps).

  9. Boxnotes changes are not reported in calls to list user and enterprise events

    When calls are made to https://developer.box.com/reference/get-events?stream_type=changes, we expect changes made to Box Notes to be reported. Currently, they're not being reported.

  10. Location of Open with message using UI Elements

    Change the location where appearing warning message on Box Edit when opening with "UI Elements Open with"

    Would like Box Edit to appear warning message on the monitor where is located browser that users try to open with it
    Currently the warning message appears in primary monitor but this would be inconvenient if they try to open with it on browser in secondly monitor.

  11. Run reports in api

    We would like to be able to run reports through the API. Having the ability to automate running reports would be very helpful for automating processes.

  14. Need to send message with collaborator invite by using java SDK or any rest point

    We have to automate the process where I need a code to send an optional message along with a collaborator invite. With Box Ui we can send optional message along with collaborator invite but I didn't find any method in BOX SDK .

  16. Allow multiple OAuth Reply URLs

    Currently, an application can only be defined with a single OAuth Reply URL. This is very restrictive for applications where multiple authentication endpoints are required.

    The workaround is to define multiple applications, but this doesn't scale well.

    In my experience, all other OAuth providers I've used allow for many URLs to be defined within a single application.

  17. Box UI Content Explorer and Content Picker: Support Download ZIP Natively through top-level Element options

    Box's REST API now supports ZIP downloads via the external API in addition to the internal managed web app. It has been a common ask to provide native support for this endpoint in the Box UI Elements - Content Explorer & Content Picker UI Elements through exposing the feature as a top-level option/property when rendering the UI Elements.

  18. Granular control of API calls within UI elements

    Mitie use Box platform to surface payslips to their employees. For this they use a Box UI element. As they analyse their API consumption they feel that the UI elements are using a lot of API calls - more than planned for and they are worried this will impact the price of their engagement come renewal. One thing in particular they have noticed is that when a user previews a document, the UI elements pre-fetches what looks like the next five documents, presumably for performance reasons. Since their users only every preview one document (the current months payslip) they are…

  19. Instructions for installing cli on Linux

    Why don't you at least include some guidance on https://developer.box.com/docs/box-cli regarding where to start if you are using Linux? I have been unable to effectively use my box account since the webdav support ended, and every so often take another stab at it. It would be nice if this page at least pointed to the best resources for installing on Linux, rather than just giving a link to the download pages.

    We are in the process of gathering feedback on usage of the Box CLI. If you would like to share how you intend to to use it, please feel free to do so in the comments. Once we’ve reached on a decision we’ll make sure to update this request.

  20. extend external collaborators

    Our internal policy expires external collaborators after 90 days. We have a few folders where we have over 400 external collaborators where we would like to maintain access beyond 90 days Is it possible to programmatically extend access to the users in those folders.
