  1. Box Report file management improvement

    Currently every generated report goes into Box Reports folder, making it rather difficult to neatly manage large number of report files.
    If it could be set to automatically sort report files into certain designated subfolders, etc., it would be convenient.
    I would also like the auto-generated report file names be customisable.

  2. Workflow status report

    We would like to have a report that gives us insight into the status of Box workflows. We would like to be able to see the individual steps of a workflow and how long the individual steps take, for example, to see if and where a workflow is stuck.

  3. Enable Box Admin (Content) search results to populate full-width screen, and shown FULL path of content

    Having searched for a string " " in Box Admin/Content, the results for a folder do not show the FULL path of that folder, because the full path length is too long for the report width.

    I have been advised by Box Support that this is expected.

    I suggest that the report width should not be hard-wired (as is currently) to fit laptop-width. Instead, the folder path should wrap onto a new row, or if screen-size allows (eg external monitor), the full path is shown on the same row.

    It should also be possible for users to change the width…

  4. Enhance Box Reports to store metadata (parameters used) in output folder

    Box Admin users regularly run several reports in a day or week, and may not read the content until days after run, and is difficult to identify the purpose it was run for, and the parameters used.

    It would be helpful, and not difficult to do, for Box to save the parameters used when creating a report, and perhaps offer users a free-text field to store (at the time it is run) the reasons why it was being run

    The following details should be available to view, when a report is completed:
    - report type (eg Box Sign, Classification, Collaborations,…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    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.

    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。

  13. Include Specific Changes to User Privileges in User Activity Report

    When running a user activity report that displays changes to a user's privileges, would like to view the specific settings that were edited.

    Example: A user's/co-admin's privileges for the "Restrict External Collaboration" was checked at an unknown time. Would like to be able to check which user made this change and when the change was made.

  15. justification report

    Reporting on Justification.
    When you have a policy that can be overridden by justification, we would like to be able to report on which user invite external collaborators by using which justification, so we can filter it quickly and ask the user when necessary for audit purposes.

  16. Folders and Files Report - Include Subfolders

    When you run the Folders and Files Report, and you filter down to run the report on a specific folder, you are unable to select the subfolders within that folder. This really limits the functionality of this report.

    I request that you add the "Include Subfolders" toggle to the Folders and Files report (just as it exists in the User Activity Report)

  17. extract report on tag

    I would like to extract a report to see what kind of tags are attached to each item.
    We would like to do this because we are planning to monitor the access of each document by categorizing each document into different tags like "Production innovation", "quality assurance", "inventory reduction", "productivity improvement", "design enhancement".

  18. Improve on Download log in the Activity Log

    Currently when trying to access to a file that does not have a collaboration right, it is registered as download in the activity report.
    I have heard the support team that this is expected behaviour due to the backend work to read the thumbnail.
    However, when looking at the activity log, it looks like a user has "downloaded" that file even though they do not have access to it so would like the report to not show "download" but something else to know that the user hasn't actually downloaded that file.

  20. User Interface Experience in Reporting.

    1. When generating a report through Admin Console, you have to manually search for the folder list and often get too many queries and takes too long. It would be a better experience to be prompted with the root directory that you can just drill down to which folder you want to report on in addition to the search functionality.
    2. When creating a scheduled report, the interface is a bit confusing because you have to hit Schedule Report, then hit schedule again, this should be a once step process and is confusing to most users, additionally the schedule button have a…
