  1. When users delete folders, we want not only the folders but also the files within to be shown in Trash.

    When users delete folders, we want not only the folders but also the files within to be shown in Trash. Here is the behavior we noticed: a. We enable "Restrict content creation" in Enterprise Settings. b. User who is not the owner of the folder deletes files. -> The files will be shown in Trash. c. The same user deletes the folder which the files above existed in. d. The files which were deleted in process "a" are no longer shown in trash, making users unable to restore them, unless they restore the folder itself. e. However, the files will…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Allow selecting multiple folders in Folders & Files Report, instead of one folder

    When reports are required for tens or hundreds of separate folders, it'd be unrealistic to run reports one by one separately.

  5. Reporting - Add EID, tenant name and proper folder name to Outbound collaboration report

    Current Outbound collaboration report display outbound collaborator's login and folder ID. Administrator cannot exactly tell who those users are with this limited information.

    If EID, Tenant name, and Folder name could be added Administrator could gain more insight on who their managed users are collaborating with and prevent data lost.

  7. Report on all Upload email addresses that are created

    Currently we can create a report on shared links. There is not a way to track all upload email addresses that have been created. The features surrounding upload email addresses is rather limited compared to the features associated with shared links.

  9. Upload/Change User Avatars (Profile Pictures) from Managed Users Page in Admin Console

    Currently user avatars (profile pictures) can only be added, removed, or changed from an individual user's account settings and these avatars are not editable whatsoever via the admin console. Meaning for an admin to add one on behalf of a user or to remove one, they must use instant log in (which not many co-admins have).

    When clicking to edit a user from the Admin Console -> Managed Users page, options to manage the user's avatar should be presented (just like we have for editing their name, email, etc.).

  13. Restrict Number of users in Group

    I would like the option to restrict the number of users in a group.
    The reason is each department has a cap to how many users they can register and if we can stop other admin adding more than they are allowed, it would make the management easier.

  14. We would like to be able to preview files encrypted with Microsoft MIP from Box./フォルダ・ファイルレポートのフォルダ絞りこみ機能でフォルダIDを指定できるようにしてほしい。

    The function to filter by the current folder name wastes time because it does not know which folder is the target folder when there are multiple identical folder names.

    (In Japanese)
    現在のフォルダ名で絞込をかける機能は、同一のフォルダ名が複数存在した場合にどれが対象フォルダなのかが分からず無駄な時間が発生します。

  15. Allow Excel to open "Export Users" report (csv) without worrying about garbled characters

    Admin Console > Users&Groups > Managed Users > Export Users

    Please change "Export Users" report to the format of the UTF8 csv file with BOM

    The format of the "Export Users" report has been changed to csv.
    Therefore, when you import it into Excel as it is, the characters will be garbled.

    ​The workaround now:
    We change it to csv file with UTF8 BOM in a text editor now before importing it into Excel.

    However, this workaround would required few extra steps before importing it into Excel.

  18. Custom Terms of Service - Prompting External users to accept terms after change to terms

    It has been noted that if the text of theCustom Terms of Service is changed for internal users, internal users are prompted to re-accept the new terms. However for external users, if the text of the terms is changed, the external users is not prompted to accept the new terms until they are invited to a new folder. Can the external users be prompted to accept the new terms once the text is changed?

  20. Improve the de-provisioning process in Box

    Improve the de-provisioning process in Box so that old content isn't stored when it's not needed, and if it is needed, the right people are taking over ownership of the content. Workflow should look something like this: -User leaves company and is removed from AD group or marked somehow as "removed" -Collaborators on their shared folders are notified that they should take ownership of the folders, if the content is still needed. For example "you have 30 days to take ownership of X folder." -When they click to take ownership, the folder/file is now owned by them and other collaborators…
