  1. 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!)

  2. Functionality to clear pinned device from user's account settings

    Currently pinned devices for the device pinning functionality can be cleared by the admin console only. User should be able to do this so that user can choose which devices to use Box with without asking the Box admin every time.

  3. Ability to sort folders that appear in the "Select folders this user can access" view

    The current view includes both parent and sub-folders. We would like a method for choosing Favorites or such that allows control of that window's view.

    As we have a large number of folders, the current view is unmanageable and searching is cumbersome.

  4. Bulk Edit - Add 'Status' column to Bulk Edit spreadsheet

    There is no way in the Admin Console to update 'status' (active, inactive, etc.) for 2 or more users at once (aka in bulk).

    Enhancements to the Bulk Add/Edit feature are not currently on the roadmap, but will keep track of this request and consider prioritizing if many customers are requesting it. User status can be edited via API or SAML

  5. Create a group of previously created groups aka nested groups

    We have a group of providers that we would like to make a larger super-group of the nested smaller groups instead of adding each individual user

  6. Allow Excel to open report (csv) without worrying about encoding

    The encoding for such csv file is in UTF-8 (no Byte Order Mark) and Excel failed to interpret such file, resulting in non-Unicode character turning garble.

    Since we open this report in a Spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel, it would be beneficial to have Byte Order Mark added to the csv report in the first place.

    The workaround now is either
    1) Open the csv file in a modern text editor and re-save it using UTF-8 (with Byte Order Mark)

    2) Open a blank spreadsheet on Excel. From "Data" tab click on import from text data source. The manually imported…

  7. Inactive State: Do Not Hide Owned Folders for Managed User Collaborators (still hide for External Collaborators)

    Currently the 'Inactive' User Status not only prevents the user from accessing their account, it also hides ALL owned folders for all collaborators.

    Meaning if John Smith is changed to 'Inactive', all of the collaborators that are in his owned folders will no longer see those folders in their accounts.

    REQUEST: Change this status to only prevent the user from accessing their account, while keeping their owned content visible for Managed User collaborators (keeping today's behavior of hiding for External Collaborators).

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. Group-Level Sharing Controls: Control sharing permissions at the Group level

    This request is specific to controlling external sharing permissions and defaults by Group. For example, an admin should be able to permit whether a Group can generate Open Shared Links, invite external collaborators, and the default shared link permission that is generated, even if users in that Group are within a folder that has external sharing enabled.

    For now, we are focussed on solving bulk management issues with Shared Links.

    Box Shield is an additional option for enforcing granular controls on content.

  10. Groups cannot be collaborated via API without Manage groups scope

    Users cannot add groups to folders via the API like they can in the UI without special 'manage groups' scope, which is essentially an admin scope. One direct impact with this is that it prevents our mobile app from having invite parity with our web app,

  11. Split and transfer data to several users when the owner is deleted (including folder assignment)

    Hi,
    it would be nice if I could split the data of a user to be deleted among more than 1 other user.

    If, for example, a department head leaves the company and another head takes over the disciplinary part on an interim basis, but the technical issues are still mapped in the department, it makes sense to be able to separate the structures. We are currently transferring the disciplinary page manually.

    Best regards,

    The Single Sign On feature is currently an "all or none" setting and it would be nice to have the option to exclude certain users from the SSO requirement when enabled.

  18. Ability to create an index of a folder structure

    1) A way to create an index of a folder structure to make it easier for outside collaborators to get an idea of whats down the folder tree. We’re looking for some sort of index (like a table of contents) in an orderly fashion for a particular set of folders. I ran a files and folders report but as just an excel sheet it was relatively useless as a table of contents

    2) A way to schedule a report to run daily or weekly

  19. Make login screen text easier to edit

    In the admin console, there's a "Login Page" section, where it's possible to set a message that appears for all users on the Box login page. Currently, editing/formatting that message requires both access to the admin console, a knowledge of HTML, and an understanding of which HTML tags are and are not valid in that message.

    As the information posted as a part of that message is often something that comes from communications staff, not technical staff, those barriers to editing it are significant. It would be nice if there was both a way to delegate the editing of that…
