  1. Send verification email to user, on the primary email alias update on admin console

    Changing primary email login on admin console for users does NOT send email with verification link to these users. I've had to troubleshoot this for every user I've attempted to make this change on. Please fix.

  3. Add more robust migration options when deprovisioning

    A customer gave feedback about when a user is deprovisioned. Rather than transfer all the users content to a new user, they would like to have an option to only transfer content that is collaborated. All personal content should be deleted or marked for deletion via retention policy. There should also be an option to manage any publicly shared links.

  4. Different Custom Branding for subgroups

    I have a customer that has many different subsidiaries under the same tenant. They would like uses of the subsidiaries to have a different experience when it comes to custom branding for the tenant.

  5. Output a report detailing the operation of a file request.

    The current useractivity report outputs all file requests as "Edit File Request Link" when the settings are changed or when the file request expires, so it is not possible to see the details of what operations are performed from the report.

    Please make it possible to output a report detailing what was set or changed in the operation.

    (Japanese)
    現在のユーザーアクティビティレポートでは、ファイルリクエストについて設定を変更をした時や有効期限が切れた時に、すべて「ファイルリクエストリンクの編集」として出力されるため、どのような操作が行われているかなど詳細をレポートからは確認することはできません。

    何を設定・変更したか操作の詳細をレポートで出力できるようにしてください。

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. Products for which a large number of API requests are expected should not be subject to API calls.

    Products for which a large number of API requests are expected should not be subject to API calls.

    [Background]
    The API requests per user is 1000 per minute.
    In this regard, I would like to see API calls excluded for products such as Netskope, which have a clear linkage source and are likely to have a large number of API requests.
    If the API is not executed due to a violation of Box's restrictions, it will have a significant impact on business operations.

    大量のAPIリクエストが考えられる製品については、APIコールの対象外として欲しい

    [背景]
    · 1ユーザーあたりのAPIリクエストは1000件/分となっています。
     →こちらについて、Netskopeなどの連携元が明確化しており、大量のAPIリクエストが考えられる製品については、APIコールの対象外として欲しい。
      Box側での制限に抵触してAPI実行がされなくなると業務に大きな影響を及ぼします。

  14. Add a function to extract the collaboration list for each specific folder of box by "user (editor etc.)"

    I want you to add a function to extract the collaboration list for each specific folder of BOX by "user (editor etc.)"

    Background:
    Currently, it is necessary to output the report (collaboration) by the administrator,
    but I want to output it by a user without administrator authority, not by the administrator each time.
    Not one department or company that manages all folders,

    Each small folder has a co-owner, and the co-owner grants access rights and strips them.
    Therefore, it is necessary to deal with the intrusion of many people such as personnel changes of those who have access rights to…

  15. Receive notification when a folder is renamed.

  16. Allow the tenant administrator to select the folder created by the API account as the owner.

    I want to allow the tenant administrator to select the folder created by the API account as the owner.

    Currently, when you log in as a tenant administrator, if you want to check the folders linked with Box for Teams, you cannot check all the files because you are not the owner.
    I would like to be able to select the owner of the Box folder generated in cooperation with Teams to be the tenant administrator so that management confirmation and control / log acquisition can be performed.

    ・APIアカウントで作成されたフォルダをテナント管理者も所有者と選択できるようにしたい。

    現在、テナント管理者でログインした際にBox for Teamsで連携したフォルダを確認したい場合に
    所有者でないためすべてのファイルを確認することができません。
    Teamsと連携して生成されるBoxフォルダの所有者をテナント管理者にする選択をできるようにして
    管理上確認や統制・ログの取得をおこなえるようにしたいです。

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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。
