  1. Shared Link Details: Add 'Last Usage' Column

    The Shared Link Details report is a great report currently that provides admins a wealth of information when performing an 'inventory' or security review of all existing shared links.

    One additional column that would be very helpful to include is a 'Last Usage' column that would provide a date entry for each shared link.
    Usage is defined as the last time someone actually used that link in a browser. This is helpful to admins to be able to know if a link is still being used or not (prior to disabling it for security reasons.)

  2. Currently our event log does not log detailed about activity made in External Folders

    For example, copying files from an internal folder to an external folder our admin logs does not log the file name or details about the file. Only logs the File ID and target Folder ID.
    We should log activity made in external folders.

    Registering Webhooks against external folders detailed logs are exported. We should be logging the same details to our admin logs.

  4. 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.

    Thank you for your submission. However, this does not have enough demand in order to be prioritized.

    We will reconsider with additional use cases.

  6. Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    To improve report performance, Box migrated legacy to new data platform on collaboration report recently. However, new one will take about 24 hours to reflect latest data into exported report. It could be harder for admin to audit new collaboration on enterprise using report feature. There are two request for this change :

    • Make sure that admin knows when the exported report is as of
    • Reflect much faster like User Detail Report which can reflect 1 hours ago

  7. Auto Expiration of Collaborations

    For automatic expirations of external collaborators:

    Add criteria to automatically remove an external collaborator after they have not accessed content for X amount of time instead of a fixed day amount. This way, after an external collaborator has not previewed a piece of content in X amount of days, they will be removed. Makes it less manual to extend external collaborators if the system is removing them for us because they are not accessing a folder.

  8. Reporting for Former Employee(s)

    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.

  11. 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.

  12. Users who have permission to output reports should be able to select "target folders and files" within the scope of their access rights

    Under the current specification, only administrators or authorized co-administrators can select the "target folders and files" when outputting the User Activity Report.
    For the sake of business efficiency, I would like to see users who have permission to output reports be able to select "target folders and files" within the scope of their access rights.

    現在の仕様では、ユーザーアクティビティレポートを出力の際管理者または、権限の付与された共同管理者のみ「対象のフォルダとファイル」が選択可能です。
    これをレポート出力権限を持っているユーザーは、業務効率上、自分のアクセス権がある範囲の中で「対象のフォルダとファイル」を選択できるようにしてほしい。

  13. Ability to set Default Collaboration Role to Viewer-Uploader

    Please allow the ability to set Default Collaboration Role in admin console to Viewer-Uploader.

    Currently the only options are Editor or Viewer. Editor is too much access as a default and Viewer is too limited. Please provide Viewer-Uploader as a third option or to replacement Editor role. Viewer-Uploader is a safer option as a default as it allows everything Editor role does except delete. Users are not being mindful when they share content and our support team spends time doing search and rescue. If Viewer-Uploader were the default, safer environment and Box will have better appeal.

  15. 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.

  19. Ability to change idp name.

    Once customer set up SSO connection, that IdP name stays there even after they switch to new IdP. It's UI misrepresentation.
    For example, a company may initially setup SSO with Azure using SelfService. If they switch to Okta, the Azure language will remain.

  20. Personal Folder Auto-Creation

    Similar to the Okta feature (https://support.okta.com/help/articles/Knowledge_Article/36802318-Configuring-Box-to-Create-a-Personal-Shared-Folder), this request is for a native option in Box to automatically provision a 'personal folder' for each user upon provisioning (whether provisioned manually, via Bulk Add, or via auto-provisioning).

    Key Requests for this feature:
    --Ability to customize the name of the folder that's created (such as choosing the user's name + 'Personal Folder' or other custom strings of text)
    --The user's personal folder will be created in their own account and they'll be the owner of it, with no other users in it (even if restrict content creation is turned on)
