  3. Collaboration Allowlist - Ability to Download and Sort

    On Admin Console enterprise settings > collaboration allowlist the domains are not in order and there’s no good way to search it. When you have more than 20 domains it becomes unusable for anything but adding. Need ability to sort/filter as well as export allowlist details.

  4. 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…

  5. Add Box User IDs to the Managed User Report

    It would be great to have the Box User IDs added into the Managed User Report. Currently, when we deprovision a large batch of accounts, we have to run a report in the Box CLI to grab the Box IDs and then add them to the Managed User Report.

    Adding the Box User IDs into the Managed User Report will help us simplify our deprovision process.

  7. When user share folder/file to group, please be able to use copy and paste.

    When user share folder/file to group, please be able to use copy and paste.

    When share folder/file to Group, if group name includes "@" and user copy and paste that group name to 'Invite People', it is judged mail address not group name.
    So, user cannot invite that group.

    If user enter group name and select from suggestion, they can invite group normally.

  9. SSO Federation Page in Box

    Some customers with different divisions want to authenticate through multiple IDP/AD's - We address this by redirecting app.box.com to an internally (customers app server) hosted page which has a redirect button for each business division user to click to be taken to the appropriate IDP for authentication. I'd like to see a redirect page in the SSO configuration where we can configure this routing for each business division. Rather than have to host this outside of Box.

  10. Improvements to Collaborations Report

    The current report misses of two vital items of data when managing External Collaborators. Namely the data last logged in and the date the account expires.

    This extra data would allow administrators to see who is using their Box account and who is due to expire in the forthcoming period.

    Please vote for my idea.

  11. Removed Collaborator Report That Show Affected Folder Path, Folder Owner, & Link To Affected Folder

    Recently, my company ran into an integration bug between Okta and Box, which result in a mass deprovisioning of users account. We were able to reprovision user account fairly quick but there as a mass folder permission lost.

    If the user permission was granted via a group, all permission was successfully restored. However, if the permission was granted individually, that permission was lost. Ticket was open with Box support to request for assistance with folder permission restore but they could not help.

    So the next best thing was try to run "User Activity" report on "Removed Collaborator" on the service…

  13. Add ethical walls to collaboration

    This is currently not planned. We are looking into restrictions that admins could set at this level, but there is nothing planned on the roadmap for this as of now.

  14. Location and IP address in Access Stats Export

    Make location and IP address visible in the exported file to have a uniform view and behaviour in both the exported file as well as the pop-up window when a file is accessed.

  15. Ability to import/export group information to edit

    To edit group settings efficiently, it's helpful that Box Admin can import/export group information for bulk edit.

    not planned  ·  katiele responded

    There is a clear ask for bulk operations (edit/delete/add) for user management in the Admin Console, but we are currently focusing on making our user management pages and APIs scale and perform more quickly. While this is on our radar, we are not currently prioritizing this on our near term roadmap.

  16. 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.

  17. Make inactive users their own category vs. remaining as licensed users

    Inactive users shouldn't be regarded as licensed users; we need to maintain user history so we never delete users.

  20. Pre-defined reporting

    Request for Box to create pre-defined reports. Currently, we have to input criteria everytime, reallocate the parameters and reset it up again. Goal is to have admin be able to pre-populate a report thats saved and say run it every Sunday night. Any thought to utilizing Relay to run Manual Start, predefined reports?
