    Hi Ben,

    I'm not sure if you are referring to the Box app upload user interface or the API it self.

    You're right, the user interface does not allow the user to predefine the description of a file about to be uploaded, forcing the user to manually click the file and update the description.

    Neither does the API, however when dealing with the API there is nothing stoping the developer to capture that information from the user or app and immediately after the upload (which returns a file object) make a call to the file update end point and update the description.

    This would make the user experience of your custom app seamless. 

    Maybe I'm miss interpreting your question, if that is the case please elaborate.
