  2. Folder and file reports are output in a tree format, making it easier to understand the folder hierarchy.

    The new platform version of the Folders and Files report is sorted by creation date by default.
    This does not fulfill the role of a folder tree report.
    If folders are not specified, sorting by all folder/file IDs, etc. into a tree format is impractical and affects business operations

    (Japanese)
    「フォルダ・ファイルレポートがツリー形式で出力されることによって、フォルダ階層が分かりやすくなる。」

    新プラットフォーム版のフォルダとファイルレポートはデフォルトで作成日順でソートされます。
    これではフォルダツリーレポートの役割を果たしていません。
    フォルダを指定しない場合、すべてのフォルダ・ファイルID等でツリー形式にソートするのは現実的ではなく業務に影響します。

  3. I want to output all collaborated listings including subfolders.

    In the Collaboration Report, please add collaboration information that includes subfolders of the folder to which the user is invited.
    The existing feature only allows information on folders to which users are invited.

    Once this functionality is implemented, the administrator will be able to see all folders to which the user is collaborating, and will be able to create management reports seamlessly.

    and seamlessly generate management reports.

    (Japanese)

    【サブフォルダ含むすべてのコラボレートされた一覧を出力したい】
    コラボレーションレポートにおいて、ユーザーが招待されているフォルダのサブフォルダを含むコラボレーション情報を追加してください。
    既存の機能ではユーザーが招待されているフォルダの情報のみ確認できます。

    この機能が実現されると、管理者はユーザーがコラボレーションしているすべてのフォルダを把握する事ができ、
    シームレスに管理レポートを作成することがでるようになります。

  5. Add column to Shared Link report "user who created shared link"

    Please add information about the user who created shared link to Shared Link report.
    Using User Activity report is NOT an effective solution to decipher information who created the shared link and on what folder/file.

  6. Pulling file-level user activity reports in bulk

    I am trying to run a user activity report in Box. What I am hoping to see is which users accessed a set of files during a certain period of time.

    I ran the User Activity report in Reports against the parent folders that I was hoping to review, the activity log that came back only shows actions taken on the parent folders, no activity is shown for any of the files within the folders.

    Support has confirmed that there is no way to run this report against the sub-folders and sub-files of the folders selected.

    Having this functionality is…

  7. Custom Identifiers that can be seen in user reports

    Customer Requests the ability to upload custom identifiers that can be seen when running user reports. Currently they use the user's email address to determine if a license is needed, and when a name change occurs, this creates confusion as it appears that the person may have left and the license is no longer needed.

  8. Groups exportable Report needed

    I think every organization's admin could use a quick User Groups report. Essentially it would look like the Groups page, with the addition of Shared Folders and names of members.

    Columns:
    Group Name
    Created Date
    Number of Members
    Group's Admins
    Group Members (Names)
    Group Description
    Shared Group Folders

  9. Consistent data size output from folder and file report

    Don't shorten, or allow us to choose if we want the file sizes shortened (KB, MB, GB) when calling the Files & Folders report. Full data sizes would allow for much more consistent and streamlined ingestion into data analytics tools like PowerBi.

  10. Collaboration Report - Add Last Accessed Column

    Box Admin frequently runs reports on all external collaborators who they work with and wants to remove external collaborators from files that they haven't accessed in awhile. Wants to be able to run a report that filters to all external collaborators and allows you to see the files that they are collaborated on AND the last date that they accessed those files. This will help the admin determine if an external collaborator can be removed from a file. The collaborator report allows you to do most of this. However, the Collaborator report is missing a "last accessed" column. The request…

  12. Email-to-folder Security Concern - Need Visibility

    Need a report based on email-to-folder entries. Our cyber-security platform recently flagged a change in auto-forwarding to a Box email address (one of those cryptic folder addresses), but I cannot find the folder that contains the feature turned on. The User Activity Report has a column, "Details" that shows "Service: Email Folder," but I don't see our suspect folder listed. Maybe there have been no emails going there yet- but this is a security concern that needs clarification. Should be an easy report to build, the records exist in your database. Thanks.

  13. Ability to export "Direct Links" from box in reports

    We have the ability to export "Shared links" but would like the ability to also export "Directly Links" as well.

    We use box to host 6k plus folders and files. Inside those are some PNG files that , when direct links are on can open up directly to the PNG file instead of the traditional view with the box logo on the top left. This helps us post product in our website with a more professional full screen view that direct links provide.

  14. Ability to detect which Box client is running on a user's device

    It would be very helpful to build out functionality to detect which Box client is installed on a user's machine from within the portal to assist with product troubleshooting.

  15. Allow the custom renaming of a report before it's run

    All the reports have a standard name (i.e. useractivityrunon2022-11-01-14-38-28Page1) and there is no ability to create a custom name. As an admin we run more than a single report in an hour and that report may be associated with a user or file name we're searching for. We need the ability to be able to customize the report name that is relevant so we don't have 5-10 reports running that all start with useractivityrunon{date and time} for example.

  16. View saved reports generated by other users

    Currently, a co-admin can view reports run by other users, but not save reports created by other users. We would like our IT Service Desk to create on demand monthly reports that we would provide to some of our content owners. This would require all members of our IT Service Desk to have visibility over all existing scheduled reports

  17. Select box reports export folder

    With the new scheduled report capability, it would be useful to determine the folder where scheduled report are exported as a way to grant access to a range of users. Whilst we can now select who are the viewers for a report, this is not ideal as people change roles, and therefore a location or a Box Group would be much more convenient ways to share scheduled reports

    We would like you to be able to specify the person who operated and the target folder and file when outputting by specifying "restore from trash" in the activity report.

    Currently, if you know the item name for sure, it will not be searched if it has been moved to the Recycle Bin, and you cannot specify items in the target folder and file items.
    If it becomes possible to specify when reporting even if it has been moved to the trash,
    It is a useful clue when conducting research.

    (In Japanese)
    アクティビティレポートで「ごみ箱から復元」を指定してを出力する際に、操作した人や対象フォルダやファイルも指定できるようにしてほしい。

    現在はアイテム名を確実に把握している場合にごみ箱に移動されていると検索にかからない仕様になっており、対象のフォルダとファイルの項目にてアイテム指定を行う事ができない。
    ごみ箱に移動されている場合でもレポート時に指定する事ができるようになれば、
    調査を行うときに有効な手がかりとなる。

  20. "Last Modified By" criteria as an option within Folder and Files report

    Why isn't "Last Modified By" criteria an option within Folder and Files report? This information should automatically included. It doesn't make sense why we can't query this information.
