  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. Enable a "notes" field for each Managed User and External User in the Admin Console.

    Enable a "notes" field for each Managed User and External User in the Admin Console.

    Sometime special permissions are given and a place to record it would be convenient.

  6. Ability to not display the Dev console

    For company operations, the Admin does not want end users to develop Box applications.
    Therefore, we would like to configure the admin side to not show the "Dev console" to end users.
    Please make a button to control the display of the "Dev console" in the Admin console.

    (Japanese)
    会社の運営上、管理者はエンドユーザーがBoxアプリケーションを開発することを望んでいません。
    そのため、管理者側でエンドユーザーに「開発者コンソール」を表示しないように設定したいと考えています。
    管理者コンソールに「開発者コンソール」の表示を制御するボタンを作ってください。

  7. Wants to find move operation from the source folder

    User Activity report searches the destination folder which the file currently exists. However in move operation, the customer wants to search not only the destination folder but also the source folder.

  8. Ability to customize file and folder report

    File & folder report execution customization has to be there So that we can run the report only for a particular or a list of the user account. Rather than running for a whole domain, Which really makes no sense on having huge reporting dumps.

  9. Quicker way to export legal hold info at scale

    For enterprises that leverages Legal Holds at a very large scale (hundred of them or more) some would like a quicker snapshot to see which users are custodians under legal holds in their environment, and how much content is being affected (in GBs, without listing every individual piece) without running hundreds of legal holds reports individually to gather this data. A quick check like this would then allow them to decide which legal holds they need to run more granular reports on, saving time and resources

  11. Collaboration Allowlist - Ability to Download and Sort

    On Admin Console enterprise settings > collaboration allowlist the domains are not in order and there’s no good way to search it. When you have more than 20 domains it becomes unusable for anything but adding. Need ability to sort/filter as well as export allowlist details.

  12. Capture time spent on the Box Resource

    Time spent on the Box Resource

    We would like to get information on the amount of time spent on a particular resource(viz like pdf, ppt etc). We looked into the api documentation and could not find this info.

    when a user views a certain resource we want to log the time the user spent on the resource.

  13. Enhance User Details Report to indicate storage used in 'Bytes'

    Show the storage used in Bytes in User Details Report:
    When we run the user details reports from the admin console, we notice that there is users showing as owning 0 amounts of storage, however when we look at the account manually, we can see that they do own content in their accounts. The User Details Report shows storage used in MB. We need to be able to report accurate metrics on the usage of Box across our departments on storage used.
    We are recommending that the Storage Used column please be measured in Bytes so we can accurately determine…

  14. Improvements on output of collaboration report

    There is a time lag in the output of the collaboration report.

    There is a 24-hour time lag since the recent revision.
    I would like to see improvements so that the content of the collaboration report is reflected in real time.

  15. Ability to create or edit access level to permissions

    Like to be able to create or edit Access Level to permissions we want not just what you decide. For example, we want to add the Rename permission to the Viewer Uploader Access Level but can not so we have to choose to give Editor rights that include delete ability as alternative which is not acceptable. There should be some ability to alter the Access Level roles to the Enterprise using your software and permissions should be individual even if not administered that way.

  16. Generate report that includes folders where users have set notifications

    We need a report that allows us to see which folders users have set notifications for.
    If there is a problem that does not get notified, the administrator can check the report to find out what is going on.

    (In Japanese)

  17. Store all generated Box Reports into a Single Shared Folder for the Enterprise

    Need a common folder in the enterprise to store reports generated by box by admins and various co-admins. This will reduce the load on the box platform as well as it will significantly reduce duplicate runs. One such way to do this would be Instead of creating new "Box Reports" folder under every user who runs the report enhance the report generation feature to module to look for a folder name "Box Reports" and if exists then upload the reports there. Alternatively make a it an enterprise setting where admin can pre-designate a folder where all generated reports will be…

  18. Receive notification when a folder is renamed.

  19. 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.

  20. Disable all Web App Integrations with selective permit (whitelist)

    There are many Web App Integrations and some are "added by default" or are "available". Would like to change this behavior to disabled by default and then selectively enable (whitelist) specific applications.
