  2. Have a download policy similar to the upload policy

    When someone is downloading content with social security numbers, EINs, tax numbers, etc. then someone is notified

  3. Add ability to query if a user is under Legal Hold via API

    Currently, Legal Hold objects have assignments, and if you get information about the assignments via the API you could see if a user was assigned to them.

    However, we want to access it from the user perspective - something like an islegalheld field on the user object.

  4. Include link to folder/file shared in admin email notification for sharing policies

    Currently, the email notification for a sharing policy only shows who sent the collaboration invite and to whom rather than showing the content that was shared. This requires an admin to pull a collaboration report each time to verify what was shared.

  5. Collaboration Domain Whitelisting at Folder Level

    We want to whitelist other domains at the folder level so that collaboration can be open with certain clients on external folders while also being completely blocking collaboration with any other domains.

  7. Allow Export / Download of all 'Held' Content in a Legal Hold via UI (aka Add an 'Export Content' Button)

    There are already exposed API endpoints for customers to programmatically export/download all content that's being held as part of a Legal Hold Policy - https://docs.box.com/reference#legal-holds-object, but some customers don't have development resources and would prefer for this functionality to be simply exposed as an 'Export Content' button on the Legal Hold Policy UI itself.

    Hi everyone! 


    We're pleased to announce that legal hold exports will be generally available in FY23 Q3 (September timeframe). This will include exporting items from trash! Please be sure to contact myself or your CSM to learn more. 


    Best,


    Will Carlson

    Sr. Product Manager

  8. Hide admin from access stats when viewing/downloading content on legal hold

    We do not want users on legal hold to know that their content is being previewed or downloaded. We want to be able to "hide" their actions from the access status.

  9. Allow export of content from Content Manager

    When reviewing content from users who are on legal hold, allow admins to export data directly from Content Manager instead of requiring the admin to navigate to the file in Box.

  10. Apply retention policy to all existing content

    Currently with Governance, you have the ability to apply a retention policy to all new content. This policy does not touch any of the existing content within the domain. This is a large issue for an enterprise that wants to apply a single retention policy to the entire domain.

  12. The ability to limit the options for extending the retention period

    We only want content to live in Box for a set period of time and want to limit the ability for content owners to extend retention after period is up.

    This is currently not on the roadmap as we have not heard this request from many other customers. We will consider it in the future if there is increased customer demand.

  13. Easily identify folders owned by an individual user via Content Manager

    I have a need to determine what folders are owned by a certain person and wanted to know the easiest way to get that information. When viewing under Content Manager I see all the folders the person has access to but cannot filter it for the one she owns. I also tried running the Folders and Files report but am getting an error.

    For example, I need to look up all folders owned by one user in order to change them after a name change.

  15. Restrict the move to the trash in Retention and Legal Holds

    Currently, Retention and Legal Holds prevent contents from deleting them permanently, but it's more helpful to let contents not to move to the trash. We would like to choose from either option. ion.

    This is an understandable request, but if fulfilled, would create a situation where users had no way of removing files from view.

  16. Apply disposition action based on "Move" date

    We would like to move active projects to a completed projects folder that deletes content after 30 days.

    The disposition action should occur 30 days after the project is closed and the folder is moved, rather than when the files were initially uploaded or last edited.

    We cannot apply a policy to the active folder because we need to be able to delete files.

  17. Collaboration Whitelisting - Add Ability to Whitelist Specific External Users

    The Collaboration Whitelist feature is currently scoped to whitelist entire domains

    REQUEST: Take this current domain whitelisting a level deeper by only allowing certain users from a given domain to collaborate with ones own EID, aka introduce user-level external collaboration whitelisting controls to where a company can say "block all collaboration with all @acme.com users except for X @acme.com users"

  18. Classification Reporting - Add Details of Classification Changes to Usage Logs

    Currently, when a file's Classification level is changed, a 'Metadata -> Edited Attributes' event is generated in Usage Logs. However, this event entry doesn't say WHAT changed (aka, it could be a Classification change, it could be any other metadata change - the admin can't tell).

    REQUEST: Add information to the 'Details' column of Usage Logs (and the Excel export / API event stream) about what Classification attributes (aka tell the admin what the Classification WAS, and what it is NOW).
