Get directory listing from web GUI

I was advised by my institution that it is not possible to get a directory listing of files in a given Box folder, using the browser interface or any simple non-API type approach. Can someone more authoritatively confirm that this function is unavailable?

I am unaware of a way to get a directory listing within the GUI.

Hi @DavidOdden,

 

Welcome to the Box Community and thanks for your first post in the forum!

 

Admins can export the following items from Content Manager:

  • The user’s entire folder tree
    Right-click the user’s name in the folder tree on the left and select Export from the menu.
  • The paths for files in an individual folder
    Right-click the folder name and select Export from the menu. You can also select Export from the dropdown menu in the More column.

You visit this page for more info.

There isn't a way for a user to do this through the UI though.
