  1. 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.

  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.

  3. 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.

  6. Tags

    I'd like to see Box further realize and exploit the power of tags. From what I have seen, Box has only utilized the tip of the iceberg when it comes to tags. Below is a list of capabilities that would be amazing to use!

    • Tag Viewer: a place to manage, rename, delete tags, and more.
    • Tags appear and clickable in search results
    • Ability to tag document in editor

    I’ve been a devout Evernote user for years and they have a strong tag game. Evernote has been the backbone of my business for 10 years, and tags are the backbone of…

  10. Bulk edit folder settings in the admin console

    Grant the ability to bulk edit folder settings in the Admin Console. We recently made changes to our Enterprise folder settings. Updating these settings was not completely retroactive and did not propagate for all subfolders, resulting in either having to update folders individually or using the API. We would like the ability to have a feature for bulk editing folder settings natively in the Admin Console that can be retroactive and will propagate to subfolders.

  11. Change the design of Admin console in the custom settings

    The design of Admin console menu is only black. We need to identify that Admin console is production or sandbox by design(ex. color).

  12. 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,

  13. IP address restriction setting in admin console

    We would like to be able to configure IP address restriction setting in admin console.
    It cannot be set up IP address restriction without a service request to product support.
    Therefore, any customer have to wait long time to set it and also is inconvenient.

  14. 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

  15. Add Box User IDs to the Managed User Report

    It would be great to have the Box User IDs added into the Managed User Report. Currently, when we deprovision a large batch of accounts, we have to run a report in the Box CLI to grab the Box IDs and then add them to the Managed User Report.

    Adding the Box User IDs into the Managed User Report will help us simplify our deprovision process.

  16. About the "Restrict collaboration to company" setting

    Request
    Please add the item "Limit collaboration within the tenant" in the folder settings to the following location.

    [Management console > Enterprise settings > Content and sharing > Content collaboration]

    ■ Background
    Currently, the company definition of the per-folder setting "Restrict collaboration to company" refers to:

    ・Accounts created with the domain registered in the tenant
    ・Accounts belonging to tenants

    The "company definition" of the shared link can be customized from the management console, but it is unnatural that the internal collaboration cannot be defined.
    By arranging this function on the tenant side and controlling it by the administrator, it will…

  17. 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…

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

    We will reconsider with additional use cases.
