  1. Box report on keyword

    BOX report does not have a feature to create a report based on keyword. For example I wanted to find out any folder named Ring Central but there is no way to do it. It only searches for the entire of our box and sometimes fails to give us the report

  2. moving a file within a folder

    As in Datasite, I wanted to move a file to a higher hierarchy within a folder (say file #4 should actually become #1), and also number the files (or folders within a folder) so we can talk about a number., not a full name. In Datasite you just drag and drop the file or folder and move location. Can this happen in Box as well? Thank you

  3. Report changes in the date of automatic deletion of folders

    Operations that set an auto-delete date for a folder will appear in the report, but operations that changed the auto-delete date is not.

    If the date is changed by someone to an earlier date than the originally set deletion date, the folder may be deleted without others being aware of the change in the deletion date.

    In that case, you need to check the change history in the report to know which user made the change.
    However, we cannot know this unless the change in the automatic deletion date is output to the report.

  4. Ability to prevent all managed users from approving invitations from free accounts

    Implement a feature that prevents all managed users from approving invitations from free accounts

    We believe that receiving invitations from personal free accounts is not desirable from the perspective of possible information leakage, such as intentionally moving or copying company information to a personal account.
    If the domain of the owner of the invited folder is not on the domain whitelist, it will result in a considerable time loss before the domain is registered and the invitation is made, leading to a loss of work efficiency.
    If this function is implemented, invitations from corporate tenants and approval of invitations will…

  5. Reporting on admin 'log in as' feature

    For security reasons it would be useful for Box to be able to report on all admin activity, in particular when admins use the 'log in as' feature to view a user's files, so we can see a list of which users 'logged in as' which users and when, to ensure the feature is being used appropriately.

  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. Folder access expiration date for internal and external users access to folders

    Add a feature to allow user's access to folders to expire on a pre-set date that can be determined at the time you are adding them as a collaborator. We have various students and interns floating through our department that only need temporary access to certain folders and its become incredibly challenging to go back and remove access on a rolling basis.

  9. 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。

  10. I would like to be able to output the print log from the report as well.

    The operation log on the box can be output from the basic report, but I think the log when printed cannot be output from any report.
    I would like to see printing added to the report conditions so that we can see who printed it.

    <翻訳>
    Box上の操作ログは基本レポートから出力は可能ですが、印刷された場合のログはどのレポートからも出力できないかと思います。
    誰が印刷したか確認できるようにレポート条件に印刷も追加してほしいです。

  11. Add application ID and e-mail address of the service account of the custom application in the new Custom Application Manger

    New custom application manager doesn't provide the application ID ( not client id ) and the automatically created email address for the service account. We need these information to do daily box operation so it would be very useful if we can check these information in the new Customer Application Manager.

  12. Reporting the monthly MAU usage for each application

    In the large enterprise, many customers charge the usage of Platform API call and MAU to the department, group company, subsidiary which owns Box Platform based custom application.

    But currently Box doesn't provide the report to know the usage of MAU per customer application. So I strongly request to add this to the existing report or add new report.

  13. Add a search bar to Groups menu when creating new user

    When creating a new user in the Admin Console, it is possible to search for specific folders to add this user to as a collaborator. Unfortunately, there is not a search function for adding users to groups from this New User page, and when these group names are rather long and the full name of the group is not able to be seen in the menu, and when an organization has a large number of groups, it can be difficult to determine which group to add the user to.

    Can there be a search bar added for the Groups menu…

  14. Scheduled reports enhancement

    Add relative data filter option for reports instead of just absolute dates. For example, report can provide information for selections like, previous day, last week, last month, last quarter, last year, current month, and today. The option to specify specific dates could be listed as custom date range. This would be useful both for ad-hoc reports as well as scheduled ones. It would also be helpful if in the future, reports could be scheduled as reoccurring.

  15. 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.

  16. Enforce Box Drive naming limitations in WebApp

    It would be great to be able to enforce Box Drive file naming conventions in the webapp. This would prevent users from naming files with unsupported characters or . at the end of the file name. This would limit the number of Box Drive errors.

  17. Consistent TimeZone Reporting

    Good morning,
    I think it is important that all the reporting is consistent in the way it is generated. Right now there are three linked reports that are treated differently and make more difficult to compare them. Though the underlying purpose is different, it is clear that they are related and it would help a lot that they use the same exact time zone.

    These reports are:
    - Platform Activity. Generated by using PST time zone.
    - User Activity. Generated by using the report requester time zone.
    - App Diagnostics. It allows to specify the time but it is based…

  18. 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.

  19. Groups - Customizable Permission Settings

    None of the 3 permissions options - Company, Group Members, Admins Only - are ideal. Would love to have more options or perhaps a customizable setting where we can select which options to allow.

    For example, as the primary admin, I apply groups to root folders and I want anyone shared to that folder to be able to view the group members for any group collaborating on that folder. Only way to do that now would be to set the groups' permissions to "Company". However, I do not want everyone to be able to invite any group to folders, and…

  20. Groups - Show the full Group name when editing Members and Shared Folders

    When editing Members or Shared Folders for a group, the breadcrumbs at the top show "Group > [Group Name] > Edit Users/Edit Shared Folders". The Group Name is truncated so you can't read the whole name, and there's no mouse-over help text either. Seems like it'd be a pretty simple fix to adjust the font size or rearrange the layout slightly to show the whole group name.
