  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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).

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. Ability to set specific permissions by default

    Ex: Read only

  8. 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)

  9. Users who have permission to output reports should be able to select "target folders and files" within the scope of their access rights

    Under the current specification, only administrators or authorized co-administrators can select the "target folders and files" when outputting the User Activity Report.
    For the sake of business efficiency, I would like to see users who have permission to output reports be able to select "target folders and files" within the scope of their access rights.

    現在の仕様では、ユーザーアクティビティレポートを出力の際管理者または、権限の付与された共同管理者のみ「対象のフォルダとファイル」が選択可能です。
    これをレポート出力権限を持っているユーザーは、業務効率上、自分のアクセス権がある範囲の中で「対象のフォルダとファイル」を選択できるようにしてほしい。

  10. Capability to restrict third party apps from creating folders on first level

    Currently, even if the tenant setting is set to allow only administrators and co-administrators to create folders on the first level, there is a security problem that third party apps can create folders on the first level even if the user-created application as a JWT application is given only the minimum permissions required to run the application, such as "app access only" and "write to all files and folders stored in Box.
    For this reason, I would like to see whether to grant administrative privileges or not clearly added to the configuration item so that it can be controlled.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    To improve report performance, Box migrated legacy to new data platform on collaboration report recently. However, new one will take about 24 hours to reflect latest data into exported report. It could be harder for admin to audit new collaboration on enterprise using report feature. There are two request for this change :

    • Make sure that admin knows when the exported report is as of
    • Reflect much faster like User Detail Report which can reflect 1 hours ago

  18. 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…

  19. 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. 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.
