Is it possible to use File Requests in the Content Explorer?
We use the Content Explorer (https://developer.box.com/guides/embed/ui-elements/explorer/) in our internal application, but we have found that it does not seem to have all of the functionality of Box.com, such as the File Request in the menu. On Box.com you can select a file's menu and click File Request, but that same feature does not show up in the Content Explorer on our internal application. Are we using an old version of Content Explorer, or does that not have all of the features the full website has?
That's correct - the Content Explorer doesn't currently support generation of File Request objects, chiefly because the File Request API doesn't exist yet. However, it's on the roadmap:
And while I haven't seen any commitments around adding it to the Content Explorer element, I think it would make a good addition if you want to try your hand at creating a post on Pulse!
