  1. Collaborator Clean Up

    Collaborator Clean Up - In Account Settings / Collaborators, we want to add the ability to click on any collaborator and see what files and folders they have access to. When looking at the list, have a button available to remove them from specific folders as needed. This will be especially helpful when performing a CBN, Audit or Digital Clean up.

  2. Content manager and folder picker for user activity report

    Ability for group admin/Business admin to use Contents Manager (and folder picker for user activity report).
    Currently, the group admin or admin of Business license cannot choose folder from picker on user activity report because they don't have the permission to view users' contents (or Contents Manager).

  3. Stop disabling access to content when its owner account is deactivated.

    If content owner's account is disabled, any collaborators lose access to said content. A different workflow needs to be put into place to allow these collaborators access to content previously shared with them.

    Either automatically transfer ownership to a co-owner or when the original owner account is being suspended, add options for preserving access to other collaborators.

  4. Prevent users to change their own permission level

    Prevent users to cange their own permission level in order to avoid "downgrading" the permission from Co-Owner to Viewer (for example) just for yourself.

    Or not allowing a user to remove himself/herself from a folder.

  5. Distinguish FTP and FTPS in User Activity Report

    would like a way to distinguish the difference between FTP and FTPS traffic.
    The “details” column in the user activity report only shows the connection to “Box FTP Server”,
    but it doesn’t specify which protocol or port was used.

  6. Increase the 10,000 Limit for Groups

    Currently if you create more than 10,000 groups, the groups at the bottom of the list alphabetically cannot be searched for when creating a collaboration.

  8. External collaborator redundant expiration notice

    If a Box folder is created in one Box org. and external collaborators are added, they’re already set to expire depending on the rules.

    If you move the folder to another org., and the new org has the same domain as the added collaborators that were set to expire, they still get the expiration notice, even though they shouldn’t expire because the new org. matches the added collaborators.

  9. Sharing Content to Alternate Email Address

    Currently when sharing content via email address, if the address used is a secondary email on their account, the UX is to show that the email address is for an external user, rather than a user in your box tenant. Additionally, the full name of the user does not resolve, leading users to believe that the address they selected is inaccurate.

    All alternate email addresses should be treated as searchable attributes that bring up the user profile rather than just the primary.

  10. Extend expiration dates to be shown in their user activity reports

    For external collaborations, it shows the date the collaboration is going to end when it's first set in the user activity to report as
    -Action: Collaboration expiration
    -Details: To: YYYY-MM-DD

    However when you extend this period, the "To: YYYY-MM-DD" isn't displayed so you don't know until when it's extended until unless you go the individual folder/file itself and look at the "clock" mark manually.
    In the report
    -Action: Extend collaborator expiration
    -Details: [Blank]

    The customer wants to have a grasp of each expiration dates so they're saying looking at each item manually on Box is impractical.
    They would like the…

  11. API: "email_alias" Is it possible to register other than the same domain?

    API: "email_alias" Is it possible to register other than the same domain?

    At this time, if you disable it until the email address is confirmed with
    the same specifications as when registering from the UI,
    I think that you can prevent misuse.

    Example)
    Suppose a customer wants to give a user two email addresses in different
    domains before the company integrates.

    This specification allows administrators to bulk register using
    the API without user effort.

  12. whitelist external users for File Request Link

    In business you frequently work with external partners or agencies and need to have the ability for those entities to manage a File Request Link. Limiting the File Request Link to just managed users limits the collaboration ability of the business needs.

  13. Specific Access to subfolders in the same Folder

    Is it possible to give to users view permission only to specific subfolders within a folder? Example: I want to upload to a master folder 5 subfolders to our daughter company partners and I want to make sure that the 3 subfolders out of the 5 of them will be viewed only from their bosses. This flexibility helps you to avoid creating 2 different folders for the same Task-Subject.

  16. Box settings fail to provide needed permissions for those who upload data.

    Box settings (limitations) in connection with Anderson Business Advisors are very frustrating. Uploader's should be able to edit what they upload. I have complained about this for two years. The impact is that garbage is scattered all over the site because I can't property rename or reposition files. This causes further confusion and extra communications with Anderson employees. I'm becoming incredulous about this - it seems like such a simple expectation to be able to rename a folder, or move a simply file into a folder after it has been uploaded. Please provide this simply capability ASAP.

  18. Keep Cost Center Field populated when user invited as a Managed user

    If creating an account and you have to send the user an Invite to come over as a managed user, the Cost Center field (If filled out) will not stay after the user accepts the invite. Forcing you to have to go back and re-add info you may have already included.

    I would request that if the Cost Center field is populated on a user creation, that it remain after an invited user accepts their invite to stop double work.

  20. Bulk invitation

    We have multiple clients that we give access to several folders. I'd like to be able to send a single collaboration invitation, rather than inundating their mail with multiple invitations.
