  1. 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.

  3. Reports

    I want to be able to create a a custom report, which I want to run on a monthly basis. Why can I not create a report and save as a custom report. That way each month I do not have to apply the filters each month.

  4. SSO Required to have exemptions for Admin(s)

    This actually makes a lot of sense as we have it for Device Trust, but we would like SSO Required WHILST exempting an admin or two. If the IdP is down, no one can get in and this would create a catastrophic business impact.

    This is not currently prioritized. We will reconsider with additional use cases and demand.

  5. Ability for admin to disallow certain characters to be used in filenames

    For example, illegal characters that windows won't recognize

  6. Access Stats: Ability to get Access Stats programmatically per-file

    Provide an a file API endpoint to obtain Access stats similar to the functionality in the Webapp.

    Right now, we have to collect all the relevant events and do the math every time to get an accurate count. This complicates the application logic. Would be much easier to obtain the stats without having to calculate them on your own just like the UI does.

    For example having the ability to pass a field and get summary figures in the response. Having to create an event parser to do this is a high barrier to entry to get this type of…

    We are re-designing the managed users page and will focus on adding advanced filtering of managed users by status as a follow up. Right now, releasing the re-design will be our first priority, so filtering by status is not on the near-term
    (6 month) roadmap. We will revisit this after we release the new page.

    This proposed enhancement to email notifications and to custom branding is a reasonable idea, but an area that we are unlikely to invest in this year.

  10. 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.

  11. Report on contents with tags

    Would like the ability to create reports for content with tags. To ensure that the tags are correctly assigned, the BOX administrator would want to check them regularly.

  12. Report on files containing PII

    We would like the ability to run a report which will identify files with PII in our environment, such as social security numbers or credit card numbers. Currently, notification is provided upon upload of the content, and only if the customer has governance and the appropriate content security classifications

  13. 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.

  14. Access Stats: Include IP information from report preview in report export

    While previewing the Access Stats, IP information is shared. When we export the report, it doesn’t give that information anymore. We would like for the IP information from the Access Stats preview to be included in the exported report.

    Currently the option is to allow or disallow group admins to run reports. Admin wants to disable certain reports but not others.

  20. Store all generated Box Reports into a Single Shared Folder for the Enterprise

    Need a common folder in the enterprise to store reports generated by box by admins and various co-admins. This will reduce the load on the box platform as well as it will significantly reduce duplicate runs. One such way to do this would be Instead of creating new "Box Reports" folder under every user who runs the report enhance the report generation feature to module to look for a folder name "Box Reports" and if exists then upload the reports there. Alternatively make a it an enterprise setting where admin can pre-designate a folder where all generated reports will be…
