  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…

  3. 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…

  4. Generate a report that show the files versions sizes in BOX

  5. Ability to restrict target users who can be logged in login as user by admin and co-admin

    When investigating internal fraud, for example, the login as user function may be used to log in to the user under investigation. Currently, all users can log in if they have login as user privileges.

    For example, it is possible to access management user accounts and top secret information.
    Therefore, we would like to see a function implemented to limit the target users who can log in.

  6. Lack of reports on copy operations to external folders

    We strongly request the improvement of the display specification when the log of copying an item to an external tenant's folder is output to the report.

    In the current specification, when the destination folder is an external tenant, the report only shows the copied file as "External File".
    In other words, we can determine "who" copied "when" and "some file," but we cannot determine "where" and "what" was copied.

    We believe this is a major problem in monitoring and preventing information leaks.
    I thought it was one of Box's great strengths that most of the operation logs are stored and…

  7. Admin Console Report - Deployment Trends

    A report in the admin console that tracks licenses deployed over a set period of time (e.g. month-to-month) would be helpful for understanding deployment trends and ensuring we have purchased adequate seats for our enterprise.

  8. 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

  10. Automatic Image folder in chronological order

    As an administrator would be great to have all image files collected automatically in a single location where it would be shared easily with the team regardless of where the individual filed it. Need a global visual in chronological order.

    Include select items or all feature.

  11. Exception to password expiration rule

    There is a need to allow for specific user accounts to have a longer password expiration policy applied to them. However, Box's policy is EID-wide, which means that there has to be workarounds to deal with specific use-cases in which the user accounts require longer password expiration.

    It would be great if there could be an exception added to the user account like what Box does with device pinning. This would be an easy solution to the problem, the admin could go into the users' settings, provide their password expiration time frame as the exception.

  12. Include file and folder IDs in user activity report

    Running a user activity report for a deleted user shows the parent folder names the user was removed from, but no ID so there is no way to determine which folder they were removed from. (i.e. a searching for the parent folder called ACE returns 180 such folders).

  13. Collaborations Report: Add Folder Filter

    My customer would like to filter down to a specific parent folder and see a report on all collaborators on that root folder and all child folders below. Right now the Collaborations report shows ALL folders which takes a long time to run and requires filtering after the report is run. Ideally we could filter to the correct folder at the beginning.

  14. When an email address is marked as undeliverable, show that status in the console

    When your system marks an email address as undeliverable, there's currently no way to see that in the admin console. The Resend Invite button is available but the invite will never be sent because you're suppressing the address.

    In an ideal world, we'd be able to see that and toggle the status, but even if we could just see the status it would save time.

  15. Even if a group is set as Admins only, Admin wants to invite the group by selecting the folder and click share button.

    In the group settings, if Permission Settings is set to Admins Only, Admin can only add this group to collaborate on content from within the admin console. (Invite from share button does not allow Admin to select that group.)

    Even if a group is set as Admins only, Admin want to invite it by selecting the folder and specifying the group from the share button.

  16. 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。

  17. Run User Activity Report with API

    We would like to be able to run User Activity Report through the API.
    Users, groups and affected folders/files can be selected as a filter to export/run this report against. But today, keyboard typings and mouse clicks are required to select each filtering, which would be unrealistic to specify tens or hundreds of users, groups, folders and/or files.
    Thus, We would need API to utilize/filter User Activity Report at scale.

  18. Ability to specify items that have been moved to the recycle bin when outputting the user activity report.

    It seems that the specification is also intended to check the movement of items before and after they are moved to the recycle bin, but I would like you to be able to specify the items that have been moved to the recycle bin when outputting the report.

    Currently, it is a specification that can not be searched if it is moved to the trash box when the item name is surely grasped.
    Items cannot be specified in the target folder and file items.

    If it can be specified at the time of reporting even if it has been moved…

  20. Ability to view reports as a group administrator

    I would like to see a fix for the error that occurs when a group administrator displays a report.

    If you try to view the report as a group administrator, you may get the error message [Unexpected error.] error may occur.
    The current workaround is to run a report.
    We use the report function when we need to take immediate action for recovery, but if we use [Run], which takes a long time to output, the action will be delayed, which is a problem for our business.
    Therefore, we request that the function of displaying reports be migrated to the…
