  1. Governance Download Policy settings to be conditional upon defined working hours.

    Only > 3 standard deviations notifications during working hours (i.e. >37 downloads in 1 hour, therefore a high setting for low sensitivity)

    Anything >1 standard deviation during non-working hours (i.e. a low setting, or high sensitivity)

  3. Allow owners to permanently delete content even if it is in a folder that is under retention policy.

    Allow owners to permanently delete content even if it is in a folder that is under retention policy.

    Legal would like owners to have the ability to still purge content when necessary (without moving the content to a different folder).

    While we have considered retention policies that do not block early deletion, this is not something we plan on pursuing right now.

    The original purpose behind retention was to support highly regulated use cases. With more customers requested this “non-regulatory mode”, this may become prioritized later.

  4. Notification Policy - Notify if not part of certain domains

    It's desired that Notification Policies have the ability to notify if an external collaborator is added that is not part of the EID's domains.

    Currently, companies must set a notification policy and detail all of the domains they want a notification policy for.

    While this is possible to implement, we are not making significant changes to sharing policies in the near future.

    Thank you for this feedback! This is not currently planned. We will reconsider this with additional demand.

    This is not planned at the moment due to the resource-intensive request against our other roadmap priorities. I appreciate this use case and your sharing this feedback.

  9. Add flexibility to edit an existing legal hold

    We would like to be able to adjust the date of the legal hold or be able to only extract a subset of content within the time period established.

  11. Add Enterprise Events and Usage Log actions for creation/edit/deletion of "Content Controls"

    We have Events / Usage Log actions today for Metadata, Policies, and Legal Holds (all have several specific actions that are reportable).

    But we don't have reports for "Content Controls" (i.e.. Classifications). This seems like a gap in reporting, and is inconsistent with other reporting capabilities we use for content workflow features.

    We do not allow users to reinstate retention periods since it would create a lot of confusion around what happened between the times the policy was active.

    This is very difficult from a technical and scale perspective, so we are not likely to fulfill this.

    Keep sending your suggestions and use cases, though!

  14. Track Legal Hold events and notify certain users when these events occur

    A Legal Hold report would help with this too. In looking at legal holds there's reporting for each hold but not a comprehensive report listing all hold activity

    This is unlikely to be something we build. Admins could accomplish this through the events stream or a tool like Splunk.

  15. Add Customizable 'Advisory Message' for Retention Policies

    Just as admins can customize the 'Advisory Message' shown to users for Classification policies, we want to customize the message shown to end users when they click for 'more info' on the 'Retention' UI element in the webapp (aka add an 'Advisory Message' field to the Retention Policy creation UI in the Admin Console).

    USE CASE: We would like to provide customized, specific messaging for our end users when a retention policy is applied. These users might be coming from a world where retention was managed differently. We want more control over the verbiage used.

    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.

    This is a very interesting request, and not one we have considered previously.

    It’s an unlikely addition, but we will consider this with additional demand.

    For now, is it possible to use a Box link for the video?

  18. Policies: Add Ability to Apply Them Only to Selected Users/Groups

    For some use cases, we would like to enable a Policy (Upload, Download, or Sharing) in Box, but have that Policy scoped to only apply to certain users/groups.

    Thank you for this note!

    This is a feature we’ve considered in the past but do not plan to build in the short term. This may become a higher priority with more customer demand.

  19. Folder Owner to have the ability to place their own folders or files on legal hold

    It would be really beneficial for the Folder Owner to have the ability to place their own folders or files on legal hold (without making them an admin)

    Most legal holds happen at the admin/legal team level, but I understand the request and will reconsider with additional customer use cases.

  20. Remove Option to Download or Edit A Quarantined file.

    Remove the option for a user to Download or Edit a quarantine file within Box. This affects security of sensitive information being shared by users.

    The user who uploads the file already has access to the file in some form – that is why we allow them to download the file if it violates a policy, because it does not extend access.

    We do not have plans to change this behavior.
