    Currently, Box has a variety of filters on the Search page including owner, folder, type, etc.

    One additional filter that would be very helpful would be an 'Uploader' filter -- allowing me to do a search like "quarterly planning powerpoint file that Jane uploaded".

    As part of the usability enhancements rolling out in the update noted here here – https://community.box.com/t5/Box-Product-Updates/Simplified-Sharing-Public-Beta/idi-p/64620 – we updated the Activity sidebar in Preview to sort comments with the latest comment at the bottom, aligning with the comment composer’s location at the bottom and to make way for future updates planned for the sidebar. As a result, we don’t plan to change sort order.

    Thanks for the feedback. In the updated experience, the sidebar automatically scrolls such that the most recent comments are shown at the bottom of the sidebar upon loading the page (you shouldn't have to scroll just to see the most recent comments). Meaning even when there are many comments on a file, you're always seeing the most recent by default since those are most likely the ones that are most timely for you to see.

    The change is that the most recent are now just at the bottom of the sidebar closer to the area where you write a new comment.

    Please do report back if you're not seeing that behavior.

    Thank you for your suggestion. We currently don’t have any plans to update the current email notifications flow, but will return to this suggestion later in the year. Please stay tuned!

    Currently, any time a user invites someone to a folder, there is always a 'XYZ has accepted your invitation' email notification that's sent to the inviter. This is good, except for the fact that 'auto-accept all incoming collaboration invitations' is set to ON as the default for all Box users, meaning the vast majority of Box users never actually 'accept' invites, and Box accepts on their behalf. This causes the 'XYZ has accepted your invitation' email to go to the inviter even though the recipient hasn't actually done anything to accept the invite (which is deceiving to the inviter).

    Thus, the value of the email notification sent to the inviter when the recipient has auto-accept turned ON is pretty minimal.

    REQUEST: Enhance this UX overall to improve...
    1. Decide whether we should or should not actually send a 'has accepted' email notification to the inviter when the recipient has auto-accept turned ON; perhaps an in-app notification would suffice?
    2. Decide on content changes to the email sent to the inviter when the recipient has auto-accept turned ON (change the language to better explain that the user auto-accepted vs. actually clicking an 'accept' button)

    We have received a lot of feedback around a better need to audit external user activity in the enterprise. We are currently speaking to customers to see what information they’d like available in a report and how we might automate removal of inactive collaborators. Please continue to provide use cases in the comments and stay tuned for updates.

    Currently, admins can sort the External Users page by Login, Name, and Date Added. Customers would like the ability to also sort by 'Last Activity Date' so they can easily identify the External Users that haven't 'touched' (been active) in a company-owned folder in the longest time and can then take the appropriate action (removing from all folders via the right-click menu).

    This would be especially helpful as reporting on External Users is currently very limited in the Admin Console (e.g., they do not show up on the 'Export Users' report).

    The threading that we currently have for Comments is somewhat half-baked:
    When a user clicks 'reply' to a previous comment, when the reply is posted, that 'thread' is not brought to the top/bottom of the comment stream (like it would in Chatter, for example). This causes recently-replied-to threads to be often lost in the abyss of the Comment stream.

    Hyperlinks were previously retained (and clickable) via Preview in Box for PowerPoints. Given a change to the conversion system, hyperlinks in PowerPoint files are no longer retained (thus not clickable anymore), requiring the user to download the file and open in PowerPoint just to access a hyperlink in the slides - which is not the best UX.

    Add ability to filter (like on Usage Logs) for 1 or more specific Managed Users before running the report to avoid having to pull the report for all users (which takes quite a while as we know), then filter down in Excel.

    Though it's currently possible to use the 'Export' button from Content Manager to export a single user's folder tree, customers have very limited #s of admins that have Content Manager access due to security risks of granting Content Manager access.

    Customers would like this same 'export' option added to the Reports -> Folders & Files page (filtering by user) so that co-admins with Reports access can pull this same data without having to gain access to all user content globally (via Content Manager).
