  1. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  2. Admin Console - Ability to sort by options in Metadata

    I'd love to see sort by options when using a drop down list for the option in Metadata. When you have a large subset of choices, it'd be great to see Alpha Ascending order/descending orders and potentially other filters.

  3. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  4. Customize Insights storage graph from PB into TB

    When Admin Insights STORAGE is below 1048TB the storage graph shows changes per 1 TB. Anyone deleting several TB's is quickly visible in the graph. However when over 1048TB, the graph's scale jumps to 0.01 PB, which decimals are way to large to spot large data deletions.(10TB steps !). Request to change STORAGE from PB back into TB's. The graph is a flat-line and unusable since the scale changed from TB into PB.

  5. Improve speed of reflection of latest data for reports less than 1 hour

    Reports other than the User detail report will take 24 hours to reflect the latest data. Only user detail report is live with 1 hour data freshness limit. It is very inconvenient that the latest data is not reflected immediately.

  6. Ability to customize folder description on account deletion and content transfer process

    When the Enterprise Admin deletes an account and data is moved to another person, the destination folder's Description text needs to be adjustable. Instead of "If you have any questions" we do not want the users to reach out to the Enterprise Admin, but instead to raise an IT case.

  8. User activity report - files copied with 'save as' function

    Add a User Activity report File Management action to capture when a file has been saved as a copy with a different name (i.e. "Save as" from Box Edit).

  9. Box report progress bar or indicator

    We want to check the progress of a report being output.
    At the moment We can only see if it is in progress but it is not possible to see when the report will be output.

    It can take quite a while for the report to be output, but we don't want to be uncertain about when it will be completed.
    This is because we have to regularly check the output of the report, which is time-consuming.

    It would be nice to be able to see progress as a percentage.

    <出力しているレポートの進捗状況をパーセンテージで確認したい>

    出力中のレポートの進捗状況を確認したいです。
    現時点では、進行中かどうかを確認することはできますが、いつレポートが出力されるかを確認することはできません。

    レポートが出力されるまでにはかなりの時間がかかりますが、
    定期的にレポートの出力状況を確認しなければならず、手間がかかるため
    いつ完了するかわからない状態では困ります。

    進捗状況をパーセンテージで確認できると嬉しいです。

  10. Include Folder Description in File/folder reports

    Due t the large amount of files, folders and collaborators (internal and external) in our organization we heavily rely on folder/file reports to manage content and educate new users about the content layout. Being able to include the "Folder Description" in this report would be TREMNDOUSLY helpful. Is this something you could add in the very near future? Thank you.

  11. Include a Domains or Enterprise column in External Collaborations Report

    Currently, if you create an external collaborations report in the Admin Console you will have columns that include a user's email address and whether they are External. Ideally, for some use cases it is helpful to be able to organize this data by enterprise/domain so you can see what information/content is not only being shared with which users, but which enterprises as a whole at a more macro level

  13. Register multiple certificates in the certificate presence function of Device Trust.

    Currently, only one certificate can be registered in the certificate presence function of Device Trust. This makes it very inconvenient when the certificate expires. Please make it possible to register multiple certificates to eliminate the time when the function cannot be used.

  14. I want to make it so that access statistics for operations by administrators are not left behind (stealth).

    【Current Specifications】

    1. Log in to the target user as a proxy and access the site.
      → The operation by the administrator is recorded as the access statistics of the proxy-logged user.

    2. Access from the "Contents" function of the management console.
      → The operation by the administrator is recorded as the access statistics of the administrator.

    【background】

    When a user deviates from the organization's rules (service rules, security rules, etc.) in the use of Box, a case is envisioned in which the administrator wants to view or download files owned by the user concerned as evidence of the deviation.
    If access…

  15. Operation history in box.com/folder/000000000/settings

    There isn't a way yet to see how and when the setting was changed. We're trying to know is who and when and how did the Collaboration and Privacy settings change on Admin Console User Activity reports.

  16. Ability to prevent the admin passwords from expiring

    We have our copy machines scan documents directly into Box folders. However those processes periodically fail because Box currently has no ability to stop the Administrator password from expiring.

    Please allow an option in the Admin Console where you can select to have the Admin password not expire.

  18. Capture Device information in the User Activity Report

    We had a situation that ex-employee use Box Sync app using his personal laptop but Admin has no way to figure out whether he accessed them from corporate laptop or his personal laptop. The User Activity Report only shows ip address. It would be good to capture device name or OS version so Admin can double check what device this user is using when accessing synced files.

  20. Add a folder in Bulk

    It would be nice to have the ability to create a folder one time, but as a waterfall in hundreds of other folders. Instead of adding the same sub-folder under all 300 main folders individually, there needs to be a way to add the same sub-folder to all main folders in one step.
