  1. Box Reports User Details - Distinguish download to local disk vs. download using Box Drive

    Want a way to tell if the user downloaded it locally to their machine vs. just opening the doc via Box Drive/Office App/Box website. This feature would be extremely helpful to when a user is leaving the company and we want to know if they are “taking company docs”. Having “download” for simply opening and editing a doc is mis-leading. Would be super helpful to differentiate between the two.

  2. Ability to set Default Collaboration Role to Viewer-Uploader

    Please allow the ability to set Default Collaboration Role in admin console to Viewer-Uploader.

    Currently the only options are Editor or Viewer. Editor is too much access as a default and Viewer is too limited. Please provide Viewer-Uploader as a third option or to replacement Editor role. Viewer-Uploader is a safer option as a default as it allows everything Editor role does except delete. Users are not being mindful when they share content and our support team spends time doing search and rescue. If Viewer-Uploader were the default, safer environment and Box will have better appeal.

  4. Make bulk user upload more robust and improve error notifications

    I attempted to bulk-add ~250 users. This turned into a long run of whack-a-mole and required Box Product Support intervention because:

    a) Rows that did not have errors were not processed
    b) Rows that did have errors sometimes failed silently (sometimes perhaps caused by secondary email addresses or external email addresses)

    My net experience was getting not-particularly-actionable errors like this:

    Because some of the information in the file you uploaded may have contained errors or conflicts, not all users were added to your Box account successfully.

    Of the 221 users in the file you uploaded, 221 users were not added…

  5. Don't point users to the EID's Primary Admin when users try to access a disabled app

    Don't point users to the EID's Primary Admin when users try to access a disabled app. This is problematic for our larger customers as it prompts the user to reach out to an email address that may not be monitored or inundates the admin with what should be HelpDesk tickets.

  6. Shield classification - Admin console visibility and user reporting

    1) "Whenever any user tries to apply the classification, Box console is not able to tell the owner which users would be affected due to this."

    2) "As well as while adding external users for collaboration on a classified folder where external users have this limitation, It would be great if the console can let the owner know about it, Otherwise he would think all should work but in actual it's just not enough, He has to whitelist the external domain under classification."

  8. Auto-size content search manager as you go down the tree

    When using the content search manger, the further you go down the tree the less of the folder name you see. This view should auto-expand to show the full name of the folder not just the the first couple characters.

  9. Sort order when User Activity reports filter is selected.

    The content is sorted by content ID, but since it cannot be sorted, visibility is poor, so we want to sort by name, etc.

  11. I would like a report that includes the URL for folders.

    Currently we copy an ID number from our database and go to Box. We then paste the ID number into Box to locate the file we want to work in. I have recently created a field that will hold that URL and at the click of a button, the database will copy the link, go to browser and paste in the URL - a lot of time savings in our workflow. The issue I am having it is taking a long time to collect all the URLs. I would like an admin report that would allow me to export the…

  12. Ability to automatically remove deleted users from admin console settings

    Currently, you can enable features like Mark for Offline and folder-level metadata cascading by adding a user to the setting on admin console. When a user is deleted, the deleted user is left listed in the setting. We would like the deleted user be automatically removed from the settings.

  13. Admin Reports - User Activity -> Actions needs a field for if the user triggered or an automation like Box Drive triggered

    When you see "downloaded" next to Box Drive for the action, you dont know if it was a folder marked for offline just downloading automatically, or if the user is actively opening the file...this needs clarity!

  14. Add Box User IDs to the Managed User Report

    It would be great to have the Box User IDs added into the Managed User Report. Currently, when we deprovision a large batch of accounts, we have to run a report in the Box CLI to grab the Box IDs and then add them to the Managed User Report.

    Adding the Box User IDs into the Managed User Report will help us simplify our deprovision process.

  17. Opening the "Reports" menu, "Create Report" appears by default.

    When we open a "report" from the admin console, we will now see "Report Status" board.
    Before the "Report Status" board was created, "Report Create" was the first thing that was displayed.

    The main purpose of opening the "report" page is to create a report.
    The Report Status is a page to check when something happens, so it is not the main recognition.

    At the moment we have to click on the "Create Report" tab whenever we want to create a report.
    Next we will want to click on the Export button for any report.

    We hope to eliminate this…

  19. Insights map uses wrong geoip database

    We have noticed that the map displayed on the insights page does not use the same information the report attached to the map does. On the map we see connections to countries that are not in the report.

    This massively reduces the value of the map and has raised multiple security alerts, as we see connections from countries on our "forbidden list" that we cannot explain with the report.

    Lack of correct information is removing trust in the overall solution in our security department. This should be fixed soon.

  20. Report or visibility into folders set up to receive emails and upload files to Box

    It would be super helpful to know as an Admin any folders that are set up to accept emails and upload files to box folders. There is no report or visibility in this. As cyber attacks increase, we need to verify and make sure we know all of our external facing components - not knowing what folders has this component is a concern we have.
