  1. Detailed List of Managed Users in Tenant

    We would like the option to view a detailed list of managed users in tenant that has all the information of the following that is provided in the Admin Console's Users & Groups":


    1. User Account Details

    2. User Access Permission

    In the case of a large enterprise with many users registered,
    this would greatly help check and sort through each user's permissions conveniently without having to click each user's profile.

    (Currently, neither "List enterprise users" API nor "User Details" report provide for this use case.)

  2. Managing Groups

    ■Request
    For "Group Management", we would like to request the permission settings that meet the following requirements.
    ・Can freely create groups
    ・Can only manage groups created by themselves
    ・Cannot manage groups for the entire tenant

    Currently, a group administrator can have administrative rights for only certain groups, but cannot create groups.
    We would like to achieve the above by segmenting the "Group Management" authority of co-administrator or expanding the "Group Administrator" authority. Could you consider it?

    ■Background
    Since it takes person-hours to grant folder access rights on a per-user basis, it is desirable to grant access rights on a per-group…

  3. 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.

  6. Direct link creating and reporting for an entire folder. Custom Direct LInks

    Ability to create for an entire folders contents the Direct Links and a report listing those links so they can be uploaded to the app needing the direct links. Currently you have to touch each and every file you want a direct link too. Phase 2 would be allow custom URL for part of the direct links.

  7. Bulk Add someone as a co-owner to existing folders

    Make a way to bulk add someone to multiple existing folders in Box as a co-owner. This stems from if you want to make someone a co-admin so they can assist with existing folder creation/access for newer employees of your company you would have to add them to a folder individually to achieve this. If you have many folders this would take a long time as a manual process so a bulk add would make it that easier to do.

  11. Reporting function for file size and type by folder

    A reporting function for file size and type by folder, including a breakdown of this information for enclosed folders, per-folder.

    For example, we are interested in the space taken (per-folder and by file type) for a body of data in Box, but the aggregate of these folders has roughly 1.1 million files and takes 3.5TB of space. We would like to see a breakdown such that we could see, for example, that of the 3.5TB, XX% is PDF, pictures, music, movies, MS documents, etc., as well as the size of each enclosed folder.

    I started running a "Files and Folders"…

  12. Azure groups - not modifiable

    The azure managed groups should not be modifiable from BOX, as this brings inconsistency in what azure says, as well as brings clutter.

    My example:

    If you have group 1 in azure, replicated in box group 1, you should not be able to modify box group 1 in box, it should be blocked.

    This is already the case in tools like Atlassian, where synced groups from AD are non modifiable.

    This brings security breaches, as, in the admin user console, when you search a user, all the access that he has been given by azure groups, do not apear in…

  14. I want to be able to check the checkbox on the "Group Administrator" setting screen when I click the checkbox.

    In the setting window of "Group Admin Permission",
    the items cannot be check/uncheck although the operator click the check boxes.
    (The item can be checked if the operator clicks over the item names, but not in the check box.)
    It would be nice if the item can be checked as its check box is clicked.

  18. Allow more capabilities in the Reports module

    It would really be nice if you would allow filtering on more than just a couple reports, and/or the ability for admin to create their own reports.

    For instance the Files and Folders report, I may not care to run a report on all files and folders, should be able to filter based on metadata or on just specific folders.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
