  1. Support External Users in Box Groups

    Currently only Managed Users can be added to Groups in Box.

    This request is to allow both Managed and (NEW) External Users to be added as members of Groups to easier bulk collaborator management.

  2. 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

  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. Ability to manage suppression lists

    Administrator not able monitor and allow to release own User from Suppression List is a big not good (Cause we won’t know if anyone being accidentally suppress. Till next time User alert and we check to email Spam, check external Mail Security than last check to BOX). When User being capture and put under Suppression List can the system send Administrator notification message and preview and/or release; instead log case check to BOX Support??!

  5. Collaborations Report: Add Folder Filter

    My customer would like to filter down to a specific parent folder and see a report on all collaborators on that root folder and all child folders below. Right now the Collaborations report shows ALL folders which takes a long time to run and requires filtering after the report is run. Ideally we could filter to the correct folder at the beginning.

  6. 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.

  7. Customize Collaborator Permission Levels

    Any chance that we can have some flexibility in the "Collaborator Permission Levels." Can we develop a tool to edit these levels, like check which function the user can have. Having set levels with no flexibility is difficult because every user needs different access.

  8. Allow admins to report on activity of external collaborators.

    We want to report on external collaborator usage of our specific content for a number of reasons:

    1) to be able to access if their external collaborators are no longer using our data and should be removed

    2) to help us understand how their internal users are working with people outside of the enterprise.

    Right now, the reporting is limited to showing when people have accepted folders, or users can go to access stats - neither of these options is sufficient.

    Ability to see activity of external Collaborators.
    a. Downloads, uploads, previews, edits, etc.
    b. We can see my managed…

  9. External collaboration Allow list per group

    We would like to limit the external collaboration to allowed domains for a specific group not the entire tenant.
    This is useful when the subsidiary company, especially a financial company, can have a limited external collaboration for security reason.

  10. Add external collaborator's expiration date on collaboration report

    In the collaboration report, there are invited date and accepted date, but there is no expiration date. Would it be possible to add expiration date in the collaboration report?
    Because it is too tough to confirm the expiration date one by one on the collaboration list page or using API, I demand the way to confirm enitre expiration date easily.

  12. Ability to save reports to a custom location

    With the upcoming report scheduling function, coupled with improved filters to better streamline reports that are generated, it would be really useful to be able to define a custom save location for a report that is generated as part of that process (i.e. to any folder within your box instance and not just the default 'reports' bucket).

    Our use case is that we'd like to set up a series of scheduled reports (soon possible!), each one filtered to activities within a specific folder (also now possible!) and then have that report automatically save into the folder to which it relates…

  14. Need to be able to run user activity report for Box users that were deleted

    Need to be able to run reports for user activity for user account that have been deleted. Once a user is deleted I can't run any historical user activity in case there is any request for that information.

  15. Add "SSO Discovery Service Page" as a standard feature in Box login flow

    We have 5 ID Providers. Box proposed "SSO Discovery Service" to connect 5-IdPs and a Box tenant. But "Discovery Service" needs to build a public web site. We cannot build that site because of their security policy. Please prepare discovery page as a standard feature in Box login flow.

  17. Last Activity - Add 'Last Activity' Info & Sort Option to Managed Users Page

    We currently do not expose the 'Last Activity' field for Managed Users anywhere in the Admin Console.

    This is a very helpful piece of information for admins to have easy access to in order to get a good idea, quickly, whether a user has recently been active in Box or not.

    REQUEST:
    --Add a 'Last Activity' field/value for each user in the list of users on the Managed User page
    --Add 'Sort By: Last Active Date' to the Managed Users page so that admins can easily see who is recently (or not recently active)

  18. Set default file view and sort options by folder (and all sub folders for that folder)

    Ideally, let an owner or editor of a folder set the default view (list or grid) and sort order of the files.

    The system default appears to be by date the file was updated which is rarely (if ever) what our users want.

    Re: view options: For photos especially, the list view is rarely the preferred view.

    Additionally, with the grid view, allow the size of the image also be set as a default.

    This may not be an admin console enhancement. I think it needs to be a under More when you’re looking a a folder.

  19. New type of user - Managed External User

    Box users need a way to: authenticate and manage external users + invite them to collaborate in a more efficient manner, similar to how it is done with managed users via groups.

  20. Export Groups - Add an 'Export Groups' Button to Groups Summary Page & Individual Group Page

    There is currently no way for admins to export a report (xlsx) of their Groups - whether at the summary Groups level or at the individual Group level

    This is problematic for companies that have pages and pages of Groups in the Admin Console, or want to manage just one group (as the current Export Users report from the Users page - the only place any Group info IS currently exported - exports ALL users in an EID, which is overload).

    REQUEST 1: Groups Summary Export - Desired Columns:
    1 Row per Group / Mirror the Columns on the Groups
