  2. Signature on our Terms of Service / Box Sign

    We need a signature on our Terms of Service. It'd be great if Box Sign could be utilized on the TOS so that our users can draw their signature for it to please our oversight.

  6. Allow for conditional rules-based retention policy.

    Allow for conditional rules-based retention policy.
    Example: For a dealer we need to see what the newest document is based on a metadata field. The field is corporate copy date.
    If that is greater than 7 years, then delete all documents with that dealer id.
    You need to get a list of all dealer id’s and find the newest corporate copy date. If any dealer id's are greater than 7 years, delete all for that dealer. In a nutshell, we need to hold 7 years of data after there has been an interaction with a dealer.

  9. Allow for alerts or other actions on file downloads with sensitive content.

    Under Governance and content security, allow policies to be created for file download that would alert or quarantine files on Download with sensitive information such as social security numbers, credit card numbers, bank account/routing numbers, PII, CUI, Proprietary, Confidential, Classified, or Secret. You can create policies for these files that trigger on upload which seems backwards. I want sensitive content to be uploaded into Box rather than other locations. I don't want it to be removed from Box.

  10. Ability to conduct e-discovery investigations without being noticed by the User

    When investigating a lawsuit or security incident, we sometime want to do so without letting the target users know that he/she is under investigation.

    In such case, Box admin login to the target account 'as user' from admin console. But under current specification, the target user can know this admin's activities in the 'Access Stats' and Activities in Box UI.

    So I want Box to enhance the function that admin or co-admin can login as user and investigate without letting the target users know that he/she is under investigation.

  11. Allowing policy creation for longer than 50 years.

    We've realized that retention policies have an upper limit of 50 years. If we want to apply a 90 year retention policy to documents based on their creation date we can not do that at the moment.

    Though workarounds can be implemented such as applying indefinite policies or creating a policy tight to a date field set up into the future, those require extra effort at implementation level or changes at a future moment.

    Could the upper limit be removed or increased please?

  12. Review Custom Terms of Service after accepting them

    As a user that was invited to a folder but had to agree to a Custom Terms of Service before being allowed in, I would like to be able to access those Custom Terms of Service for reference after accepting them.
    I know there's an option to download them at the time of accepting, but if I lose that copy...
    Also, this would just be more convenient.

  13. Export all data belonging to a Custodian on Legal Hold

    There is currently no way through Box to export all of a user's data for offline preservation and legal review. This workflow is necessary for the EDRM model, as the files may still be altered while under Legal Hold.

  14. Search for Users Currently on Legal Hold

    Currently we are dealing with a matter that has spiraled into a huge undertaking because of the way Legal Holds are implemented. Our client has enabled over 25 Legal Hold policies, each one has an average of 50 users. We have a list of over 20 custodians that we need to know which Legal Hold they are currently on, if any.

    There are two ways to implement this:
    1 - Allow Admins to see whether the custodian (or any of their data) is currently on a Legal Hold policy, which Legal Hold Policy it is currently on, and why it…

  15. Enable ability to permanently delete a Box Governance policy

    Enable ability to permanently delete a Box Governance policy.

    I created some test policies and want to clean up my Box Governance user interface, but I can't do so because it's impossible to permanently delete a Box Governance policy.

    Also, I have policies that require a specific nomenclature, but I can't use that same nomenclature because a previous policy shares the same nomenclature, and I can't permanently delete the previous policy.

  16. UI display on box links to indicate utility of Box for ECI or CUI

    I just noticed the ECI/CUI restrictions on shared Box folders. The fact that I was caught off guard about these restrictions, even though it is very clearly written at the time of requesting a Global Share folder, means I suspect many others LM employees are as well. I am concerned about the potential for misuse, especially the way Box was sold as DX for LM, etc. It seems like ANY shared Box link should have a large, bold banner that says NO ECI or CUI permitted.

    Parenthetically, these restrictions make Box useless for all of my programs and projects.

  17. Create custom alerts if user/subset of users performs "X" amount of Downloads/Copies in "Y" amount of time

    We would like the ability to Create custom alerts to send email notifications if any user, or a specific subset of users, performs "X" amount of Downloads/Copies/Shares/Uploads/etc in "Y" amount of time (where we can select what "X" and "Y" are). We know that there is a way to setup a "Content Security - Download" policy that will send email notifications if download activity is "Low, Medium or High" based on your preset definitions of what that means (for instance "High = 12 per hour" in the preset rule), but that doesn't necessarily correspond to what we would want to…

  18. Collaboration Whitelisting UI Enhancement (enable labels and filter/search)

    When we have dozens of domains in the whiltelist for external collaboration, it is hard to manage.

    We think that it needs some UI enhancements such as
    1) enabling to add a label to each domain e.g. company name, descriptions, etc.
    2) filter or search for the registered domains.

  19. Retention policy should be able to remove folders in addition to files.

    Currently the governance retention policy only delete files. We are using the integration with Oracle NetSuite and as such we have a folder that then gets a folder setup for each Case as we are sending and/or receiving data from customers via the Case we have with them. The policy is set to get data for 30 days. The files are getting removed, however, the folders still exist. This makes it challenging when you look from the Box web interface. It would be nice to have the ability to set folders to remove if they are empty.

  20. restrict by file type at folder level

    Would like the ability to restrict File Types at the folder level, (with Waterfall rule would be ok, but ability to break waterfall would be a bonus).
    Currently we use Quarantine Policies to restrict .msg files in Box, but does not allow us to make exceptions by folder. (eg. to allow certain departments this ability, but block from others).
