  1. How to check the number of stored events

    We want to get the number of events from the Box via the API.
    There is a limit of 500 events per call.
    We need to know what percentage of all events we can get with the 100,000 call limit per month.
    We believe that getting the events is essential for automation, integration with other solutions, and advanced analytics.
    We would like to see more functionality in the event API and administrator console.

    (In Japanese)
    BoxからAPI経由でイベント数を取得したいです。
    1コールで500イベントの制限があります。
    月あたり100000コール制限で全イベントの何%を取得できるのかを知る必要があります。
    イベントを得ることは自動化や他のソリューションとの連携、高度な分析などに必要不可欠と考えています。
    イベントAPIや管理者コンソールの機能を充実させてほしい。

  2. Governance, Retention policy for folders with no content

    hen a retention policy removes files, it's possible to end up in a situation where there is a very long list of folders without any files. It would be helpful if there was a way to remove these folders quickly.

  4. Improve Quarantine capabilities in Box Governance

    mprove Quarantine capabilities in Box Governance - specifically when it relates to file types like .eml or .msg.
    1) Allow for exceptions - e.g. quarantine all content that is uploaded with .msg, but allow it for Y folder. Use case: one team in particular needs to be able to save this type of content to Box and has permission from legal to do so.
    2) Change the "Email" option to include "User who violated the policy" - for example, in addition to sending a warning email to Admins who want to track upload of .eml files, also send the email…

  6. The Ability to query which legal hold policy is assigned to a file.

    We have 10s of millions of files assigned to a single legal hold policy. We would need to be able to query by file ID to see which policy is attached to the file instead of the current way which is query by legal hold to see what files are assigned. That way doesn't work for us due to the number of files assigned to a single policy.

  7. View Legal Hold Policy for File/Folder in Web App

    Need the ability for users to be able to view in the web app which Legal Hold Policy their content is held under. Just like how the web app currently shows in case of Retention Policies.

  9. Ability to move deleted trash items to org wide "Vault"

    User some times delete trashed items by accident (instead of restoring them), asking Box Admins to raise support ticket to retrieve from the backup.

    Also, some organizations have legal requirements or policies to retain files & folders indefinitely, yet want to hide from users when user have decided to deleted completely from their Trash.

    This shall hide permanently deleted trashed items from the users, but allowing Box Admins to see/retain them and quickly restore accidentally deleted trashed items.

  10. Ability to automatically set auto-deletion of subfolders under a given folder.

    Currently, we can manually set auto-deletion of a folder via folder settings. We want auto-deletion be set automatically for all newly created folders and files that are under a given folder (in a similar way as how folder-based retention policy auto-delete file versions under the folder.). Unlike retention policy which only admins can configure via admin console, we want this feature to be configurable by end users.

  11. Compliance & Retention of File Activity Comments

    We are using the Activity section on each file to keep a running list of processing notes for each documents - ie invoice approvals, marketing and advertising review, etc. More granular control of comment governance would be very helpful.

    For instance, including comments in permission settings to prevent a user from deleting comments, or include in Governance Admin Panel an option to disable comment editing. Comments should also be subject to the same retention requirements imposed on the file itself - ie if the file has a 5 year retention period.

    Also, while there is a User Activity report that…

  12. Allow to freeze file and folders

    Allow to freeze file and folders, which will not allow any collaborators including the owner to perform any changes to files and folders. Example: prevent creating new versions of the files, prevent moving content to trash, prevent change of metadata etc. Basically complete lock, which can only be unlocked at the end of a retention period. The purpose is to manage enterprise records. May be some sort of retention policy that lets us do the above. The current lock feature does not provide the level of freeze we are looking for.

  13. Add an event for file being released from legal hold.

    We already have an event for removing the legal hold assignment, but that doesn’t tell us if each of the files under that hold is released from the hold or not.

  18. UI for Legal Holds

    A piece of UI feedback on legal holds: the buttons “release” and “report” are quite close to each other, but do drastically different things. While there is a secondary confirmation screen, it still might be useful to create more physical separation between the two to prevent mistakes.

  19. Contents Security should report the cause of policy violation

    When [Contents Security] catches a policy violation, Box tells the name of policy only.   So Box users need to find the violation data though the file.   If Box can explain a detail point of violation, it will help users to understand and find the cause of violation quickly and easily.
