  1. 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.

  2. When a new sandbox is created, automatically inherit the IP whitelist setting from the primary EID

    When we created our primary EID, we needed to provide IP address ranges so we could restrict access to our enterprise instance of Box to only users from within our corporate network. Each time we create a new Sandbox we need to ask Box support to apply the same IP range. We would like the Sandbox EIDs to automatically inherit the whitelist settings from the primary EID. This will reduce any risks of a malicious individual potentially creating a new Sandbox and not configuring the restrictions so that it is only accessible from within our corporate network.

  4. UAR

    When running a UAR from Admin Console, I think it would be very helpful if either on row 1, or perhaps in its own sheet of the resulting excel report, to include a summary or quick SQL-type list of what parameters were used to run that report. This would cut down back and forth in some cases on troubleshooting whether the person who generated the report did or did not include the correct date range, actions, User/Content IDs, etc, to resolve these issues quicker.

  5. Report the history of Apps enabled / disabled in Individual Application Controls

    We would like to be able to get a history of apps that we have enabled / disabled in the Individual Application Controls of Admin Console.
    This is under Box Apps & Integrations within the Apps settings menu.
    Currently it cannot be exported from reports etc.

  6. Run report to demonstrates permanent deletion of files

    I really need the ability to run a report that demonstrates that my files have been permanently deleted.

    Given requirements in the various data privacy laws across the world, our company may be required to delete data or files at any time, and provide proof of deletion. However, once something is deleted from our Box account, it sits in Trash for 30 days before being permanently purged. (And, if I understand correctly, the data may be recoverable for 14 days after that?)

  7. Single Pane of Glass for Multitenant Administration

    We currently have 3 Box tenants that we are having to support and currently doing so with 3 different sets of accounts/credentials. We would like to be able to see all tenants under one Admin Console and be able to make changes from that one console to all of our Box tenants.

    We are also using Okta single sign on all domain joined devices. Users login to their laptop with their primary domain account and are signed in to the primary Box tenant. Users that need to access a different Box tenant are having to user another browser or incognito…

  8. Full text folder paths for new shared links report

    Under the new shared links report, the spelled out folder "Path" column is no longer available. Please add this back to make it easier for admins to find content.

  10. Prevent password reset for managed users

    For organizations that require SSO login, we would like to restrict the ability for our users to reset their Box passwords - it causes confusion for our users.

  11. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. "Public" shared link permission to be greyed out on some folder

    User wants the "Public" shared link permission to be greyed out on some folder.
    To prevent information leakage, I want to set "Public" only for a specific folder and gray out it so that it can not be selected in other folders.

  15. Admin Console Report - Only specific admin can retrieve the logs of specific users 

    Currently, Admin is able to retrieve the log of all managed users from admin console > Report. However customer would like to make it possible for only specific administrators to retrieve report information for specific users due to GDPR. Therefor customer wants only local admin in EU to be able to get the logs of users in that country.

  16. Receive Email Notification if Report Times Out

    Currently, reports initiated in Box can timeout or 10 million records or exceeds 12 hours to generate. The user does not receive any notification should this happen to know that report will not be received.

    Enhancement request would be for the user to receive email notification that report timed out.

  19. Root folders report

    It would be very beneficial and time saving if there was a filter on the Box side that will give you a list of all root level folders in the entire enterprise

  20. Increase options for File Version Limit in Admin Console

    Currently you can only choose between 1 and 100, or Unlimited. We would like options in-between 100 and Unlimited. Preferably a custom option like trash retention was recently updated to. I would like to be able to set it to 1000 or 2000, for example.

    Justification: When moving folders that have excessive versions (7000+ for example) the folder moves can fail or take a very long time. However, setting to 100 is not enough for many of our users due to the frequency of increases when using Excel Online.
