    This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap because there is not enough demand from customers to sort members by in a group.

    We need more information about this request and customer use cases in order to prioritize this on the roadmap

  7. Show number of collaborations user has

    In the search results view of the Managed Users section of Admin Console, currently all you can see on the second line is Active/Inactive state, and bytes owned.

    It would be very useful if we could also see a numerical count of collaboration invites in this view.

    This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap. We can revisit this request as we see more demand from customers to view the number of collaborations for each user.

    This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap. We are currently focusing on improving the experience to manage users in the Users & Groups tab before we add sorting enhancements to the Groups UI.

  9. Allow group admins the ability to invite lite users as managed

    We use the group admin functionality to allow project teams to manage their Box access. They have hundreds of projects at a time so it is not feasible for the Box global admins to manage this onboarding/offboarding (which occurs on a weekly basis). Group admins have the ability to create new users as a managed user but can not invite existing lite users, which places a bottleneck on IT to invite these users in. Alternatively error messaging around this could be updated to specify why the users can't be added (currently it is not clear).

    This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap. However, we would like more information and details from the requester on whether or not having the ability to invite external users to groups could solve this problem.

  10. Edit User - Add 'Device Name' and 'Device ID' to Installed Applications Section

    The 'Installed Applications' section when editing a user on the Managed Users page currently only shows Application Type (e.g., iPhone) and Install Time.

    This is problematic when a user has multiple devices (e.g., two entries for iPhone or 2 entries for Sync due to being logged in on more than one device).

    Box already tracks Device Name and Device ID in the export of Usage Logs for 'Add Device Association', so Box should also expose this information on the Managed Users page.

    REQUEST: Add 'Device Name' and/or 'Device ID' column to 'Installed Applications' section when editing a user on the…

    This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap. We may revisit adding new functionality to the Installed Apps section with more customer requests for this data.

  11. User statistics to include users with zero activity

    User statistic reports only return users who have an action against the names, rather than reporting all users as it previously did
    Expected Behavior:

    User statistic report should return all users in the box account rather than just those with actions. This is so that the client can target users who have not logged into box

  12. Ping Federate connector to automatically sign people out of all apps when deprovisioning

    Use the API call "Update User" to force a user to change password (and in doing so, log them out of all applications) when deprovisioning a user using outbound provisioning. This isn't necessary if users are being deprovisioned to "Deleted" or "Inactive" status, but if they are being set to "Cannot Delete, Edit & Upload", then the user will still have access to Box via Sync/Mobile clients

    This suggestion is not under consideration for the future roadmap. We are currently focused on improving our user interface and key flows of user management before we add enhancements to the de-provisioning process.

  13. Team Leads - Allow Reporting

    1.  The file Access Stats feature has been requested to be exportable for all records.  Similar to this Q.
      
    2.  A user requested to have access to self-run a filtered view of the Admin-Collaborations report to quickly see the status of all his collaborators (he deals with numerous external users and needs to know who to re-prompt.)
      

    We would like this outside of the Admin/Co-Admin being able to do it.

    We will still require admins/co-admins to grant access to reports such as this. However, we are looking into which controls and reporting might require additional self-serve enablement options.

    Please add more details in the description which will help us understand the problem better.

  15. Add "Box Web App" as the service name associated with webapp upload events

    Currently, User Activity reports (and Enterprise Events) for uploads triggered via the web app do not explicitly mention that the uploads were completed via the web app. Other actions, such as previews and downloads, include "Box Web App" as the service name within the event details.

  18. Add Item Owner to content-related events

    Currently the API events do not contain the item owner for content-related activities (download, preview, etc.). Finding the owner of an item associated with an event requires subsequent API calls to inspect the object (file/folder).

  19. Global setting to control "Items per page on All Files" for managed users

    Want ability to update default items on All Files page to 100 for all managed users, and not make users do this individually.

    This is not a setting we are likely to build. We hope the relatively new Files app enables users to more easily find this setting in their end user experience to change it themselves.

  20. Bulk Add - Allow Adding of >1,000 Users at Once

    The Bulk Add tool currently can only handle adding about 1,000 users at once, which isn't scalable when our enterprise has tens or hundreds of thousands of users.
