  1. Allow the "User Activity" report to be run for a folder and all sub-folders & content within that folder

    Today, the admin may select to run the "User Activity" report for a particular folder. When run for a particular folder, the report will only filter on the contents of the selected folder, and not the contents of subfolders within. Request that the report includes the folder and all sub-folders & contents within that folder, removing the need to run the report at the enterprise level and filtering to a particular folder path from there.

  2. Customize Collaborator Permission Levels

    Any chance that we can have some flexibility in the "Collaborator Permission Levels." Can we develop a tool to edit these levels, like check which function the user can have. Having set levels with no flexibility is difficult because every user needs different access.

  3. Make admin console reports (Folders & Files, Collaborations, Shared Links) run at scale

    I saw on the Community site that there is a 10 million item limit, but my company has way more items than that. It is important for us to have these reports for security audits.

  4. Full text folder paths for new shared links report

    Under the new shared links report, the spelled out folder "Path" column is no longer available. Please add this back to make it easier for admins to find content.

  5. Folder path under Trash

    Under Trash, please add "folder path". If there was a bulk delete of many files in a folder, we want to confirm the file belongs in the folder path, before we restore the files.

  6. Pre-defined reporting

    Request for Box to create pre-defined reports. Currently, we have to input criteria everytime, reallocate the parameters and reset it up again. Goal is to have admin be able to pre-populate a report thats saved and say run it every Sunday night. Any thought to utilizing Relay to run Manual Start, predefined reports?

  7. When user share folder/file to group, please be able to use copy and paste.

    When user share folder/file to group, please be able to use copy and paste.

    When share folder/file to Group, if group name includes "@" and user copy and paste that group name to 'Invite People', it is judged mail address not group name.
    So, user cannot invite that group.

    If user enter group name and select from suggestion, they can invite group normally.

  8. "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" when running a report on a specific folder

    When running a report on a "Selected Folder" would be helpful to be able to "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" versus having to select each and every file/folder.

  9. Display folder path when Admin select folders to run User Activity reports.

    There are many same folder names. When Admin like to select specific a folder to run the report, he or she can not select right folder due to having the same folder name. If there is folder path, Admin is able to select right folder to run the report.

  11. I want to divide the public folder setting of the shared folder

    I want to open folders to an unspecified number of people in the company.

    When I contacted the administrator, he said that he could not do it because there are only the following two setting values.
    1."Anyone with the link", "Company users", "Invited users only"
    2."Invited users only"

    Only the people in the company need to see it, so I would like to divide them into the following three settings.
    1."Anyone with the link", "Company users", "Invited users only"
    2."Company users", "Invited users only"
    3."Invited users only"

    If you can divide it into three, you can get permission because you…

  12. Ability to filter events by "Affected" on user activity report

    We would like to have the ability to filter events by "Affected" column (currently, user and affected folder/file are only available filter options).
    For e.g., for "Add login app" event, device information is logged in "Affected" column, and so having this filter option will help us identify new login from unintended devices and improve monitoring.

  13. Ability to create an index of a folder structure

    1) A way to create an index of a folder structure to make it easier for outside collaborators to get an idea of whats down the folder tree. We’re looking for some sort of index (like a table of contents) in an orderly fashion for a particular set of folders. I ran a files and folders report but as just an excel sheet it was relatively useless as a table of contents

    2) A way to schedule a report to run daily or weekly

  14. Allow the use of Linux devices as approved devices.

    We had Linux based user using Box web console and as of the July update, they are no longer able to access Box. I would like to see Linx OS be added to the approved Operating Systems list in the Admin Console for enterprise settings.

  16. When users delete folders, we want not only the folders but also the files within to be shown in Trash.

    When users delete folders, we want not only the folders but also the files within to be shown in Trash. Here is the behavior we noticed: a. We enable "Restrict content creation" in Enterprise Settings. b. User who is not the owner of the folder deletes files. -> The files will be shown in Trash. c. The same user deletes the folder which the files above existed in. d. The files which were deleted in process "a" are no longer shown in trash, making users unable to restore them, unless they restore the folder itself. e. However, the files will…

  17. Report Data by Zone - Very Helpful for GDPR

    Allow admins the ability to run reports and show data residency by zone. So if I was looking to run a report on a specific folder I could essential get information such as:

    File\Folder Name
    Uploaded\Created Date
    Owner
    Storage Location (US, Ireland \Germany, Japan)

  19. Improve exported report by showing both moves into and moves out of the folder.

    If you run a User Activity report for a single folder using the 'Moved' filter and click 'Run,' the in-browser run of the results will show moves both into and out of the folder you selected.

    If you build a User Activity report with the same parameters and click 'Export,' the generated spreadsheet of results will only show moves into the folder.

    The report would give more thorough information if the exported report showed both moves into and moves out of the folder.
