  1. Re-associate accounts when deleted user with same email re-joins enterprise

    We need the ability to re-associate accounts when deleted user with the same email address joins (re-joins) our enterprise.

    We have many scenarios where contractors become employees or employees are re-hired. We would like these transitions to be seamless from a Box perspective.

    Thank you for your suggestion! The best way to temporarily disable user accounts is to change the user status to inactive.

  2. Auto Provisioning for Japanese name (lastname->firstname)

    When Auto Provisioning option is enabled, the user's name is set "firstname lastname", but we hope to have "lastname firstname".

    Currently, Japanese users set firstname information to "lastname" and lastname information to "firstname" in SAML Response.

    Firstname and Lastname should be separated like in Salesforce.

    Thanks for filling this. Because there is a workaround (though not ideal) to this issue, we are not likely to prioritize this request.

  3. Audit behavior of how enterprise settings are applied.

    Most of our settings are applied day forward. We should add an option to apply immediately to all existing users and folders.

    Day forward settings for example are Expiration settings, Domain Whitelist settings.

    Retroactive application of settings is not scalable. We are unlikely to implement this change and the current behavior is by design.

  4. Password reset email notifications to admins: Add possibility for admin to auto-reply to the affected user

    When Enterprise Setting: Notify Admins when users request a password reset email is checked, any other admin will to receive a notification whenever one of their Managed users request a new password.

    It would help being able to reply to the managed user from this notification in order to provide better interactivity between admin/user and control/security over the request.

    This is a reasonable request, however we do not have enough user demand to prioritize this feature. Please keep submitting your use cases!

  5. Ability to add a comment to a user.

    If we mark an account as Inactive, we'd like to be able to add a comment to the user for tracking purposes e.g., "Disabled by Jane D. per contract non-renewal."

  6. Report to see who has set external passwords

    Is this for a shared link use case? If so, please provide additional feedback in the comments.

  7. Total File Count by File Type via Admin Console

    We would like to see how many files are in Box at any given time and by file type. This would help drive the seamless use of Box across our org. due to the amount of content we already have stored.

    This information is available via API or by using overall size of storage as the proxy for number of files if possible

  8. Folder Level Custom Terms of Service (TOS)

    Currently, terms of service is enterprise-wide. This presents a conundrum for large enterprises who have several departments, some of which do want the TOS feature but some of which do not.

    We do not plan to implement this at this time given its narrow use case.

  9. Adjust Hyperlinks in Usage Logs Reporting in the Admin Console run in-app

    The hyperlinks that appear don't actually hyperlink out to the file/user/etc. in question and only add filters to that existing report, in-app

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

    We will reconsider with additional use cases.

  10. Ability to edit a file if it is in the Trash

    Once a file is in the trash, the only way to remove tags, metadata, is by restoring the file, making the changes, and sending it back to Trash.

    This is not planned at this time. Do BCRs help you address this request?

  20. Change email in deletion notification to users.

    We would like to include a different email in the deletion notifications to users than the default of including the admin email.
