  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. Consistent TimeZone Reporting

    Good morning,
    I think it is important that all the reporting is consistent in the way it is generated. Right now there are three linked reports that are treated differently and make more difficult to compare them. Though the underlying purpose is different, it is clear that they are related and it would help a lot that they use the same exact time zone.

    These reports are:
    - Platform Activity. Generated by using PST time zone.
    - User Activity. Generated by using the report requester time zone.
    - App Diagnostics. It allows to specify the time but it is based…

  4. Improve speed of reflection of latest data for reports less than 1 hour

    Reports other than the User detail report will take 24 hours to reflect the latest data. Only user detail report is live with 1 hour data freshness limit. It is very inconvenient that the latest data is not reflected immediately.

  5. 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.

  6. Restrict content creation at the user or group level

    Request: Root content creation to be set at user or group level instead of the tenant so that the majority wouldn't have to sacrifice a open folder structure for a small subset of users with constraints. Ultimately looking for a hybrid solution.

  7. 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.

  8. New App Management UI needs improvements

    The New App management UI was released the week of Feb 3 2020. We would like to see a few enhancements:
    1) Provide a way copy or export the whitelist of client IDs for custom applications. This is found under Admin Console - App - Custom Apps - Settings - Disable unpublished apps by default
    2) List the App ID or App Name along with the Client IDs that are whitelisted for custom applications. This is found under Admin Console - App - Custom Apps - Settings - Disable unpublished apps by default
    3) Provide better explanation for each section…

  9. User Activity Report to log all User Events that happened in external outbound folder (grey folder)

    Currently, User Events (such as file upload, download and delete by Managed Users) that happened in external outbound folder (grey folder) are logged and can be obtained via Box API. And these user activities within grey folder (by Managed Users) shall be logged in User Activity Report.

    These User Events may be required to be kept for few years due to organization's security policy. But currently, User Events are only stored between 2 weeks and 2 month, and user ID needs to be specified when ever it needs to be obtained via API.

  11. 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)

  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。

  17. Add list of Groups user is currently a member of to the Managed User Screen

    In the "Edit User Access permissions" section of the Managed User page, there is a list of all the groups and a column to indicate if the user is a member. Admin must scroll through all the groups (1000's) to find which groups the user is in.

    Would like to see a separate section that just lists the groups the user is currently a member of.

  19. New accounts 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.
