  2. User activity report

    In the activity report, exporting Collaboration Approval gives the following output:

    1. Invite external users to the "folder" of your company tenant.
      Only the folders invited to "Processed Items" are displayed.

    2. Invite external users to the "file" of your company tenant
      The folder path is displayed in "Processing item", but the file name and file ID of the invitation file are not displayed.

    This specification confuses the user and is not suitable for following the path to the invite folder.
    Please unify "Folder path", "Folder/file name" and "Folder/file ID" as output results.

  3. Shared Links Report

    It would be nice to have options rather than just export as is. Similar to User Activity, the ability to at a minimum choose a start and end date would be extremely helpful. Currently, our report is not working. Having worked with Box support, they believe it is due to the size of the export. If this is the case, being able to limit the report timeframe, will help with the size. Thank you.

  4. 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 This is found under Admin Console - App - Custom Apps - Settings - Disable unpublished apps by default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 This is found under Admin Console - App - Custom Apps - Settings - Disable unpublished apps by default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…

  6. Change Shared Link name from People in your company to People in your university or organization for Higher Education users.

    Current naming for Shared Link option is not appropriated for Higher Education. There is People in your company option for Shared Link. Change Shared Link name from People in your company to People in your university or organization for Higher Education users.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  18. Input file/folder ID instead of folder name in Files and Folders report

    Quite often folders with same name appear when the folder name is entered for filtering the folder to create the report, resulting in the report being incorrect although after long time waiting for the report to be ready.
    By allowing to filter by file/folder ID instead of folder name, such mistake can be avoided and the the filtering can be made more accurate.

  19. Auto Expiration Collaborations - allowing for Editors to extend

    Similar to how an editor can extend a shared link's expiration, it would be great if that functionality worked with extending the expiration for collaborations.

  20. 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.
