  1. Exports users doesn't reflect the latest users

    We're using the list of users which we can export from 'Export Users' button in Users and Groups menu to verify if the user provisioning tool is working correctly on the daily basis.

    Although I heard from Box that Box reports are being migrated to new data platform to improve the performance, this new Export Users report doesn't reflect the latest users. Maybe this new one reports the user list as of roughly half a day ago, so we can't our daily verification task correctly...

    I think user list should reflect the latest status so I want Box to fix…

  2. Group - Allow the deletion of a list of user

    Group Management - Allow the deletion of a list of user.
    And do not search user one by one in the group, then click one by one on Remove button and then save ...
    When you have hundred users to remove in a group with thousand users, it is boring and time consuming...
    To add a group we can add several users at the same time, it is better !

  3. Collaboration expiration for specific collaborators

    Collaboration expiration can only be applied on a folder level at the moment and cannot be applied to specific collaborators. I would like this feature for specific collaborators in a folder.

  4. 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.

  5. annotate

    When adding an annotation to a file, it would be nice to make it a once stop annotate and enable the person that i am @ mentioning to annotate the file and not require the owner to first extend the file through permissions, then go annotate. Annotation should be one process for sharing and extending annotation.

  6. Allow group administrators of SSO-enabled tenants to change the email addresses of group members

    According to the information provided by following link,
    group administrators are authorised to change the email addresses of managed users.

    *
    Link:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043692374

    Manage group member accounts:
    Edit non-admin user accounts in the Managed Users tab, including user name, email, storage, and settings.
    *
    In the case of tenants using SSO,
    only the administrator and co-administrator can change a managed user's email address.

    In this case, the group administrator cannot change the email address of the group member.

    However, in a tenant with a very large number of users,
    it is very difficult for the administrator/co-administrator to complete all the…

  7. Co-admin should be able to login to other co-admin accounts and service accounts

    Box co-admin should have the ability to log into other co-admin accounts and application services accounts to manage content. Today, you rely on using Box APIs or the primary Box admin account. It would be more convenient for coadmins to use the Box webapp instead.

  8. Integration of Collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console)

    Integration of Collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console)

    The collaborator list page (web app) and group page (admin console) seem to treat inactive users differently, and the group page intentionally excludes inactive users and only includes active users.
    The Collaborators list page in the web app does not.

    Please consolidate the handling of inactive users as this specification is confusing to users and to administrators.

  9. external share

    Need the ability to provide some users/groups to create external shares for a longer or indefinite period of time. If we have a long range project I have to disable to option to control how long a share stays out there - that in my opinion is a security risk.

  11. Metadata visibility in user activity report

    when we make changes to "fill in the blank" metadata fields, we would like to be able to see the 'before and after' what was entered within a user activity report or other type of report.

  12. Count SSO Authentication as login in User Report

    SSO Authentication is not counted as "Login" in User Statistics report. SSO Authentication is also "Login" activity. It should be counted.

  13. Ability to set an expiry date for external collaborators

    It would be very helpful to secure access to our files if we were able to set an expiry date when inviting external collaborators to a folder. It seems the only option is to share a link with an expiry date, but that leaves it open for the link to be sent to others and doesn't help if a collaborator needs wider access permissions, or just flag it up as a reminder in our Outlook calendars!

  14. Ability to reject group collaboration by individuals.

    The user may be invited as a group to a folder that is of little relevance to him.

    If we are invited to a folder as a group, we cannot remove the collaboration as only an individual.If we invite a group, but individuals within the group do not need to collaborate, please add a setting that allows us to de-collaborate (reject) only the relevant users.

    <個人がグループコラボレーションを拒否するための機能>

    ユーザーは、自分とはあまり関係のないフォルダにグループとして招待されることがあります。
    グループとしてフォルダに招待された場合、個人のみで連携を解除することはできません。

    グループを招待しているが、グループ内の個人がコラボレートを必要としていない場合、
    該当するユーザーのみコラボレートを解除(拒否)する設定を追加してください。

  15. Count previewing large Video files as "preview" in User Statistics Report

    Count previewing large Video files as "preview" in User Statistics Report.

    Sometimes previewing large Video files is not counted as "preview" in User Statistics Report.

    It should be counted.

  16. Allow Shared folders to be owned by Domain ( vs user)

    Similar to Google's Shared Drives, allowing admins to set ownership of a shared drive at the domain level vs user (human or service) would minimize the need for Service Accounts or changing ownership as users leave the company.

  18. Add Box IDs to Managed Users Report

    Currently, Box IDs are not accessible from the Managed Users Report. To obtain the Box IDs, I have to use the CLI.

    Our company deprovisions Box accounts based on the Last Login date in the Managed Users Report and it would be helpful if the Managed Users Report include the Box IDs.

  20. 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).
