  1. Ability to save reports to a custom location

    With the upcoming report scheduling function, coupled with improved filters to better streamline reports that are generated, it would be really useful to be able to define a custom save location for a report that is generated as part of that process (i.e. to any folder within your box instance and not just the default 'reports' bucket).

    Our use case is that we'd like to set up a series of scheduled reports (soon possible!), each one filtered to activities within a specific folder (also now possible!) and then have that report automatically save into the folder to which it relates…

  2. Allow for multiple primary admins

    There are several functions within the Admin Console that are only accessible to the primary admin. Setting up SSO for example requires the primary admin, and co-admins are unable to integrate with SSO. In many environments there will not be a single administrator with privileged access across multiple systems, which means the primary admin role will need to be assigned and re-assigned multiple times to perform necessary tasks.

    To promote a secure environment where tasks may need to be performed by multiple administrators, I would request either 1) admin console allow for multiple users in the primary admin role, or…

  3. Users who have permission to output reports should be able to select "target folders and files" within the scope of their access rights

    Under the current specification, only administrators or authorized co-administrators can select the "target folders and files" when outputting the User Activity Report.
    For the sake of business efficiency, I would like to see users who have permission to output reports be able to select "target folders and files" within the scope of their access rights.

    現在の仕様では、ユーザーアクティビティレポートを出力の際管理者または、権限の付与された共同管理者のみ「対象のフォルダとファイル」が選択可能です。
    これをレポート出力権限を持っているユーザーは、業務効率上、自分のアクセス権がある範囲の中で「対象のフォルダとファイル」を選択できるようにしてほしい。

  4. Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    To improve report performance, Box migrated legacy to new data platform on collaboration report recently. However, new one will take about 24 hours to reflect latest data into exported report. It could be harder for admin to audit new collaboration on enterprise using report feature. There are two request for this change :

    • Make sure that admin knows when the exported report is as of
    • Reflect much faster like User Detail Report which can reflect 1 hours ago

  5. Split and transfer data to several users when the owner is deleted (including folder assignment)

    Hi,
    it would be nice if I could split the data of a user to be deleted among more than 1 other user.

    If, for example, a department head leaves the company and another head takes over the disciplinary part on an interim basis, but the technical issues are still mapped in the department, it makes sense to be able to separate the structures. We are currently transferring the disciplinary page manually.

    Best regards,

  6. Transfer ownership of a file

    I was blown away that I can't change the ownership of "files", only folders. We have a user that retired and we need to transfer ownership of all her content to other employees (not just a single employee). Transferring ownership of a "folder" is easy and straightforward.

    Box has a limitation that prevents you from transferring ownership of an individual file. This user has about 40 files at their root of her account (under All Files). The only way to change ownership is to move the file into a folder and then share and change the ownership of the folder.…

  7. Real-Time Reporting on Usage

    For any folder or user we should be able to see what their usage patterns are like without needing to run ad hoc reports. Reports are currently very slow and it's very difficult for the team to know simple information like "did X collaborator view the folder", "who has viewed folder X", "has anyone downloaded any files from X". Even reports themselves are difficult to set up because often you need to make sure to select sub-folders. I'm right now waiting over 30 minutes to answer the question, did X external collaborator view folder Y.

  8. ADD LOCKED FOLDERS LIST IN THE USER ACTIVITY REPORT

    Currently we have no way to look up which holders are locked via FolderLockAPI.
    To avoid any trouble not knowing who has been locked,
    we'd like to request to add the locked folders list in the user activity report.

    FolderLockAPIを利用してLockされているフォルダの一覧をレポートに出したい:
    FolderLockAPIを利用してLockしたフォルダーについて、
    どのフォルダーがロックされているかがわからなくなるなどのトラブルを防ぐために、
    現時点でロックされているフォルダの一覧をアクティビティレポートに出力したい。

  9. Restrict Number of users in Group

    I would like the option to restrict the number of users in a group.
    The reason is each department has a cap to how many users they can register and if we can stop other admin adding more than they are allowed, it would make the management easier.

  10. I would like to see 4 hours added to the session duration section.

    I would like to see 4 hours added to the session duration section.

    【Current Specifications】
    In the current pull-down menu for session duration, there are only 8 hours after 2 hours.

    【background】
    We feel that the current 2 hours is too short and 8 hours is too long.
    We would like to increase the number of items for session duration to better meet the needs of users.

    (日本語)
    セッション持続時間の項目に4時間を追加して欲しい

    【現在の仕様】
    セッション持続期間が現在のプルダウンメニューでは、2時間の次は8時間しかありません。

    【背景】
    利用する中で現在の2時間では短く、8時間では長いと感じています。
    セッション持続期間の項目を増やすことで、利用者ニーズに細かく対応したいため。

  11. Capability to restrict third party apps from creating folders on first level

    Currently, even if the tenant setting is set to allow only administrators and co-administrators to create folders on the first level, there is a security problem that third party apps can create folders on the first level even if the user-created application as a JWT application is given only the minimum permissions required to run the application, such as "app access only" and "write to all files and folders stored in Box.
    For this reason, I would like to see whether to grant administrative privileges or not clearly added to the configuration item so that it can be controlled.

  12. Products for which a large number of API requests are expected should not be subject to API calls.

    Products for which a large number of API requests are expected should not be subject to API calls.

    [Background]
    The API requests per user is 1000 per minute.
    In this regard, I would like to see API calls excluded for products such as Netskope, which have a clear linkage source and are likely to have a large number of API requests.
    If the API is not executed due to a violation of Box's restrictions, it will have a significant impact on business operations.

    大量のAPIリクエストが考えられる製品については、APIコールの対象外として欲しい

    [背景]
    · 1ユーザーあたりのAPIリクエストは1000件/分となっています。
     →こちらについて、Netskopeなどの連携元が明確化しており、大量のAPIリクエストが考えられる製品については、APIコールの対象外として欲しい。
      Box側での制限に抵触してAPI実行がされなくなると業務に大きな影響を及ぼします。

  14. Allow the tenant administrator to select the folder created by the API account as the owner.

    I want to allow the tenant administrator to select the folder created by the API account as the owner.

    Currently, when you log in as a tenant administrator, if you want to check the folders linked with Box for Teams, you cannot check all the files because you are not the owner.
    I would like to be able to select the owner of the Box folder generated in cooperation with Teams to be the tenant administrator so that management confirmation and control / log acquisition can be performed.

    ・APIアカウントで作成されたフォルダをテナント管理者も所有者と選択できるようにしたい。

    現在、テナント管理者でログインした際にBox for Teamsで連携したフォルダを確認したい場合に
    所有者でないためすべてのファイルを確認することができません。
    Teamsと連携して生成されるBoxフォルダの所有者をテナント管理者にする選択をできるようにして
    管理上確認や統制・ログの取得をおこなえるようにしたいです。

  15. Output a report detailing the operation of a file request.

    The current useractivity report outputs all file requests as "Edit File Request Link" when the settings are changed or when the file request expires, so it is not possible to see the details of what operations are performed from the report.

    Please make it possible to output a report detailing what was set or changed in the operation.

    (Japanese)
    現在のユーザーアクティビティレポートでは、ファイルリクエストについて設定を変更をした時や有効期限が切れた時に、すべて「ファイルリクエストリンクの編集」として出力されるため、どのような操作が行われているかなど詳細をレポートからは確認することはできません。

    何を設定・変更したか操作の詳細をレポートで出力できるようにしてください。

  16. Ability to add custom names to reports

    The ability to specify a custom name for each report would be helpful when creating several custom reports. Having them all say Files and Folders doesn't tell me which one is created against which user or custom folder target.

  17. Add external collaborator's expiration date on collaboration report

    In the collaboration report, there are invited date and accepted date, but there is no expiration date. Would it be possible to add expiration date in the collaboration report?
    Because it is too tough to confirm the expiration date one by one on the collaboration list page or using API, I demand the way to confirm enitre expiration date easily.

  19. Better Platform Report Designed with auditing in mind

    We are requesting a better platform report focused on Security Audit needs rather than payment information, as the current report seems to just exist to break down calls for contract purposes.

  20. Additional users need to have the capability to enable Sign feature

    Need the ability for more than one person to have the highest admin level of access to the product. Your support stated that only one person can enable the Sign feature in the product. This isn't viable in business. That admin becomes a single point of failure
