  1. Managing Groups

    ■Request
    For "Group Management", we would like to request the permission settings that meet the following requirements.
    ・Can freely create groups
    ・Can only manage groups created by themselves
    ・Cannot manage groups for the entire tenant

    Currently, a group administrator can have administrative rights for only certain groups, but cannot create groups.
    We would like to achieve the above by segmenting the "Group Management" authority of co-administrator or expanding the "Group Administrator" authority. Could you consider it?

    ■Background
    Since it takes person-hours to grant folder access rights on a per-user basis, it is desirable to grant access rights on a per-group…

  2. Allow the use of Linux devices as approved devices.

    We had Linux based user using Box web console and as of the July update, they are no longer able to access Box. I would like to see Linx OS be added to the approved Operating Systems list in the Admin Console for enterprise settings.

  3. New accounts requests should come to the admin for approval.

    New accounts requests should come to the admin for approval. Users should not just be able to make an account without any permission, it makes it very hard to control license usage.

  5. Account Creation Notification: When new users are added, email admins => unclear wording and missing feature

    When a new account is created, notifications should not go to all admins. Admin should have the choice to select who gets the notification (all Admins, main admin, co-admins, specific co-admin)

    Most large organizations have co-admins assigned to monitor created users, to support / track and managed account creation and tie it to SSO or internal helpdesk processes.

  7. Add or modify accepted invite action so that an admin can easily see all folders that a user has auto-accepted

    If a user invites a set of users that has auto-accept invites on, the action the invitation shows up under is >Auto accepted collaboration invite<. You cannot search for the user that accepted it. This action shows under the user that invited the collaborator.

    However, if the user does not have auto-accept on, it shows up under both >invited collaborator< and >accepted invite.<

    Basically, if a user does not have auto-accept on, it is easy to find accepted invite and what folders they manually accepted. If a user has auto-accept on, there is no way to search for them easily…

  9. Ability to report on files moved from managed enterprise folder to external collaborator folder

    Show when content is moved out of a folder managed by the enterprise into another folder managed by an external collaborator. We would like to at least see the Move event surfaced in the audit logs.

  10. Add Metadata Template name to Details column for Metadata > 'Edit attributes' action

    Currently, when you run a report for Metadata > 'Edit attribute' you cannot see the metadata template whose attribute was changed. This makes the action much less useful to an admin.

    For example, if there were 2 metadata templates plus a classification policy on a file, and an attribute value in one of those templates were changed, it would be impossible from Usage Logs to see which template an attribute was actually changed.

    This information is already exposed in the Enterprise Event.

    REQUEST: Allow viewing Usage Logs in the UI for as long as they're able to be exported (i.e., 7 years).

  17. Update user endpoint to allow admins to retrieve a list of all unconfirmed users

    Currently, admins cannot retrieve a list of all users whose primary email addresses are not confirmed. Admins may get confused if they try to edit a user whose primary address is not yet confirmed, as this currently triggers a permissions/403 error.

  18. Correct log when a user creates an item in Box

    Currently, "Uploaded" and "Downloaded" are logged when a user creates an item like Word document, Box Note etc.

    However, it should be logged as "Created".

  19. Usage Logs - Indefinite Timeframe for Retrieval (Extend Current 7 Year Limit)

    Currently Box Usage Logs are retained by Box for 7 years. Box customers can export up to 7 years worth of Usage Logs from the Box Admin Console.

    As a customer, I want that 7 year limit to be raised to 'indefinitely,' meaning we can pull Usage Logs for actions taken at any point in time, not just the past 7 years.

    REQUEST: Remove 7 year limit for Admin Console Usage Logs exports.

  20. Display Collaboration Invite as account Creator in Daily User Account Creation Summary Email.

    Admin for enterprise is requesting to add Collaboration Invite as an account creator in Daily User Account Summary Email and Report's display results online.

    Admin received Daily User Account Summary email and it did not display the creator of some accounts within the email. It was represented by "--" in the field.

    The Admin ran a report and the results were the same when displayed within the window.

    Only when the user exported the report were they able to see that the accounts were created through a collaboration invite.
