  1. 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.

  2. Search for external users by email domain

    We want to search external users by specific email domain. We can do this for managed users, but not for external users.

  4. Ability to create Box reports by API

    To import snapshot data (folders and files, collaborations etc.) to SIEM like Splunk, it's convenient that Box reports data can be created by API.

    not planned  ·  jfain responded

    Customers can utilize the existing events infrastructure to gather this data, so we do not have any plans to provide snapshots in fewer API calls in the short term.

  5. Password Expiration Notice "Prior to" the Date

    We would like to see the message like: "Your password will be expired in 7 days". Currently, BOX asks us to reset our password on the day of expiration. This can be a problem especially when we are at airport and try to see box.

    At the Admin console, we would like to see "0 day" or "7 days" as options.

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  9. 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,

  10. Operation history in box.com/folder/000000000/settings

    There isn't a way yet to see how and when the setting was changed. We're trying to know is who and when and how did the Collaboration and Privacy settings change on Admin Console User Activity reports.

  12. Change Unique Identifier to Something other than Email Address

    This is the grouping for the common request for Box to use a unique identifier other than email address for managed users.

    Key pain point with the fact that Box uses email address as the unique identifier: Email addresses change often in large companies, thus requiring these companies to use custom API scripting to keep emails in Box updated based on changes in AD.

    This unique identifier (whether a mapped value from the customer's user store, aka AD, or the Box unique user ID) should also be the identifier used when users authenticate to Box using SSO (via SAML).

    not planned  ·  katiele responded

    This feature request isn’t currently planned on the roadmap, but we are considering the notion of user attributes that can be placed on a user and then used for better context while sharing / collaborating and searching in the Admin Console.

    Please provide more use cases in the comments to help us understand the problem better.

  15. Display folder path when Admin select folders to run User Activity reports.

    There are many same folder names. When Admin like to select specific a folder to run the report, he or she can not select right folder due to having the same folder name. If there is folder path, Admin is able to select right folder to run the report.

    I'd like to be able to run reports, like the failed login report, on former employee's deleted accounts. Once their account is deleted, they can no longer be searched so impossible to run a report on that group of individuals.

  17. 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.

  19. 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
