  1. Bulk Delete (Delete 2 or more users at once)

    Add a native Bulk Delete tool on the Users tab of the Admin Console to complement the existing Bulk Add and Bulk Edit tools that we already have.

    Key Asks:
    1. Use a similar Excel sheet as the Bulk Add/Bulk Edit tool
    2. Ability to have a column with the user email to be deleted
    3. A column to choose who to automatically transfer the user's content to (the spreadsheet version of the existing Delete & Transfer UI that we have)
    4. Columns to choose whether to notify each user (the user being deleted and the user receiving the deleted…

    We are not planning releasing bulk delete functionality at this time since we are focusing our efforts on building faster and more usable users pages. We will revisit this feature request next year.

  2. Report on installed Box Drive versions by user

    Need a report admins can run that will show all users who have ever used Drive and what the last version of Drive they last used was. Ideally there is a Device ID or Device Name as well.

    Use Case - Often admins do not have a device management system which would be used to run this report. Without that system in place OR without all devices being managed under it, admins have no visibility into what software is installed on their unmanaged users machines. Box won't be able to tell them all users who have it installed (if it…

  3. Real-time security dashboard

    We want a realtime dashboard that shows flow and actions around content. Would give security researchers insight into security events happening in their instance.

  4. Auto-Created 'All Users' Group

    Add the option to the Groups tab to have a 'smart' group that auto-adds all Managed Users - this is a commonly used practice to provide all users with a 'getting started' folder, but currently must be either managed manually or sent to Box via SAML (meaning the customer must keep the group updated in AD).

  5. 【New UI】 Ability to limit authorization settings by co-administrators.

    After the change to the new UI, co-administrators are no longer able to grant or revoke co-administrator privileges to other users for security reasons.
    Some users have voiced a lack of convenience because they are no longer able to do things that were previously possible with co-administrator authority.
    We would like to see a restriction feature added to allow operation only by some co-administrators.

    新UIに変更後、セキュリティ強化の観点から共同管理者では他ユーザーに対し共同管理者権限の付与や剥奪の操作が行えなくなっています。
    これまで共同管理者権限で実施出来ていたことが出来なくなっているため利便性が欠けている声が上がっている。
    一部の共同管理者のみ操作を可能にする制限機能を追加してほしいです。

  6. ADD LOCKED FOLDERS LIST IN THE USER ACTIVITY REPORT

    Currently we have no way to look up which holders are locked via FolderLockAPI.
    To avoid any trouble not knowing who has been locked,
    we'd like to request to add the locked folders list in the user activity report.

    FolderLockAPIを利用してLockされているフォルダの一覧をレポートに出したい:
    FolderLockAPIを利用してLockしたフォルダーについて、
    どのフォルダーがロックされているかがわからなくなるなどのトラブルを防ぐために、
    現時点でロックされているフォルダの一覧をアクティビティレポートに出力したい。

  7. 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…

  8. Request Compliance Reports from Admin Console

    It would be great if customers could request SOC reports (and possibly other Compliance reports) directly from the Admin Console. This way requests go to the right people right away, expediting the report return rate!

    As we work to build out a more robust compliance framework, this is absolutely something we’ll be considering. However, it is not on the near-term roadmap.

  9. Ability to run custom in-app messaging banners from the Admin Console

    Admins would like to create custom in-app messaging banners to display to their users when they are logged into Box.

    In-App Messaging banners could be used to promote training, drive awareness and adoption, inform users of new features or internal policies, etc.

  10. Password Protected Folders

    Would love to be able to password protect certain folders within an unprotected folder. Since permissions "waterfall", I am unable to have a private folder within a public one. After reading the forums, this would be a very useful and widely used feature for businesses who want to limit access to folders to certain groups.

  11. User-Level Sharing Controls: Control sharing permissions at the User level

    This request is specific to controlling external sharing permissions and defaults at the user level. For example, an admin should be able to permit whether a user can generate Open Shared Links (e.g., disable open links per user), invite external collaborators, and the default shared link permission that is generated by that user, even if those users are within a folder that has external sharing enabled.

    We are currently focused on building groups for access to 1st and 3rd party apps and specific enterprise settings in Box rather than focusing on groups or individual users for sharing controls. Uservoice request here: pulse.box.com/admin/v3/suggestions/36670615

    To achieve granular sharing controls, you can explore using Box Shield to classify sensitive content and set access policies to that content.

  12. 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.

  13. disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled

    We would like a Function to disable comments, tasks, and version history when "Hide collaborators and their activities from non-owners" is enabled in the "Privacy" folder settings.

    We want this because If you invite multiple external collaborators, we don't want external people to detect who you are inviting.

    There is a function to hide collaborators, but if invited external users use comments, tasks, version history, it will be possible to see who is invited, so we would like to disable these functions as well.

  14. Security Report: Include Changes to Any Setting from Enterprise Settings

    Currently, the Security Report doesn't appear to capture quite a few settings changes that happen in Enterprise Settings in the Admin console, which is bad.

    For example, if an admin is wanting to know who changed the 'save files to device' setting on the Admin Console -> Enterprise Settings -> Mobile tab, there's no in-product way currently to identify that. Also,

    --All Notifications tab settings except for the Compliance Email Archive settings are missing
    --ALL settings from the Apps tab are missing, meaning there are no filters/logs exposed currently for any changes to make apps available/disabled, disabling all published apps,…

  15. Ability to see deleted items only in the trash of the user who deleted them.

    In the case that a user accidentally uploads a sensitive file to an invited folder and delete it to avoid the access of others, the folder collaborator with viewer-uploader or above access permission can find it by searching the trash and moreover he/she can restore it.
    We need to limit the ability to see deleted items only in the trash of the user who deleted them.
    It would be even better if this could be configured in the admin console.

    ユーザーが誤って招待されたフォルダに機密ファイルをアップロードし、他のユーザーのアクセスを避けるためにそれを削除した場合、ビューアー/アップローダー以上のアクセス権限を持つフォルダのコラボレータは、ごみ箱を検索することでそれを見つけることができ、さらに彼/彼女はそれを復元することができます。
    削除されたアイテムを見ることができるのは、削除したユーザーのごみ箱だけに制限する必要があります。
    これを管理コンソールで設定できればさらに良いと考えています。

  16. As an admin I like to be able to search on a folder ID in the admin console

    I just had a user with only a path to a folder with an id (https://company.app.box.com/folder/123456789) for example.

    I didn't have access to it, so I was wondering which folder it actually was.

    I couldn't find a way to search for the ID in the admin console, so I could find the real name and owner.

    My suggestion is to have a search field in the admin console where you can put the Folder ID and it returns the full path and owner.

  18. Merge Users - Ability to Merge 2 or More Accounts Into 1

    A 'merge users' feature would help with the initial administrative burden of cleaning up existing accounts.

    Key asks:
    --The ability to choose 2 or more Managed Users in Box to merge
    --The ability to choose which email becomes the primary email for the user (thus which account will become the owner of the other account's owned content)
    --The ability to choose whether demoted emails should be retained as email aliases or simply removed from the user's (updated) profile
    --The ability to choose whether existing collaborations on externally-owned folders are retained (meaning account 2 is invited into an external folder, when…

    We are currently re-designing our managed users page for performance and usability updates which will be released at the end of this year. We will revisit newer features to user management after we release our new UI. In the meantime, please add your use cases in the comments so we can have this feedback when we decide to pick this up.

  19. Add ability to manage tags

    Admins need a way to mass edit tags. Sometimes people misspell tags when they're adding them, or sometimes an entire tag itself needs to change completely, and everything that has that tag should be updated. (Check out how Zenhub handles tags for inspiration!)

  20. Export list of tags

    We would like to be able to export of list of tags used in a given folder. Ideally, this would be in the form of a spreadsheet or Excel file that aligns tags to a file names. Also, a restricted tags list (i.e., “select only from the drop-down,” or words not on the approved tags list will not be able to be used) would be most helpful.
