  1. Ability to save reports to a custom location

    With the upcoming report scheduling function, coupled with improved filters to better streamline reports that are generated, it would be really useful to be able to define a custom save location for a report that is generated as part of that process (i.e. to any folder within your box instance and not just the default 'reports' bucket).

    Our use case is that we'd like to set up a series of scheduled reports (soon possible!), each one filtered to activities within a specific folder (also now possible!) and then have that report automatically save into the folder to which it relates…

  2. Split and transfer data to several users when the owner is deleted (including folder assignment)

    Hi,
    it would be nice if I could split the data of a user to be deleted among more than 1 other user.

    If, for example, a department head leaves the company and another head takes over the disciplinary part on an interim basis, but the technical issues are still mapped in the department, it makes sense to be able to separate the structures. We are currently transferring the disciplinary page manually.

    Best regards,

  3. Transfer ownership of a file

    I was blown away that I can't change the ownership of "files", only folders. We have a user that retired and we need to transfer ownership of all her content to other employees (not just a single employee). Transferring ownership of a "folder" is easy and straightforward.

    Box has a limitation that prevents you from transferring ownership of an individual file. This user has about 40 files at their root of her account (under All Files). The only way to change ownership is to move the file into a folder and then share and change the ownership of the folder.…

  4. ADD LOCKED FOLDERS LIST IN THE USER ACTIVITY REPORT

    Currently we have no way to look up which holders are locked via FolderLockAPI.
    To avoid any trouble not knowing who has been locked,
    we'd like to request to add the locked folders list in the user activity report.

    FolderLockAPIを利用してLockされているフォルダの一覧をレポートに出したい:
    FolderLockAPIを利用してLockしたフォルダーについて、
    どのフォルダーがロックされているかがわからなくなるなどのトラブルを防ぐために、
    現時点でロックされているフォルダの一覧をアクティビティレポートに出力したい。

  5. Restrict Number of users in Group

    I would like the option to restrict the number of users in a group.
    The reason is each department has a cap to how many users they can register and if we can stop other admin adding more than they are allowed, it would make the management easier.

  6. Add external collaborator's expiration date on collaboration report

    In the collaboration report, there are invited date and accepted date, but there is no expiration date. Would it be possible to add expiration date in the collaboration report?
    Because it is too tough to confirm the expiration date one by one on the collaboration list page or using API, I demand the way to confirm enitre expiration date easily.

  7. Collaboration Allowlist - Ability to Download and Sort

    On Admin Console enterprise settings > collaboration allowlist the domains are not in order and there’s no good way to search it. When you have more than 20 domains it becomes unusable for anything but adding. Need ability to sort/filter as well as export allowlist details.

  8. Capture time spent on the Box Resource

    Time spent on the Box Resource

    We would like to get information on the amount of time spent on a particular resource(viz like pdf, ppt etc). We looked into the api documentation and could not find this info.

    when a user views a certain resource we want to log the time the user spent on the resource.

  9. Enhance User Details Report to indicate storage used in 'Bytes'

    Show the storage used in Bytes in User Details Report:
    When we run the user details reports from the admin console, we notice that there is users showing as owning 0 amounts of storage, however when we look at the account manually, we can see that they do own content in their accounts. The User Details Report shows storage used in MB. We need to be able to report accurate metrics on the usage of Box across our departments on storage used.
    We are recommending that the Storage Used column please be measured in Bytes so we can accurately determine…

  10. Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    To improve report performance, Box migrated legacy to new data platform on collaboration report recently. However, new one will take about 24 hours to reflect latest data into exported report. It could be harder for admin to audit new collaboration on enterprise using report feature. There are two request for this change :

    • Make sure that admin knows when the exported report is as of
    • Reflect much faster like User Detail Report which can reflect 1 hours ago

  11. Store all generated Box Reports into a Single Shared Folder for the Enterprise

    Need a common folder in the enterprise to store reports generated by box by admins and various co-admins. This will reduce the load on the box platform as well as it will significantly reduce duplicate runs. One such way to do this would be Instead of creating new "Box Reports" folder under every user who runs the report enhance the report generation feature to module to look for a folder name "Box Reports" and if exists then upload the reports there. Alternatively make a it an enterprise setting where admin can pre-designate a folder where all generated reports will be…

  12. I would like to see 4 hours added to the session duration section.

    I would like to see 4 hours added to the session duration section.

    【Current Specifications】
    In the current pull-down menu for session duration, there are only 8 hours after 2 hours.

    【background】
    We feel that the current 2 hours is too short and 8 hours is too long.
    We would like to increase the number of items for session duration to better meet the needs of users.

    (日本語)
    セッション持続時間の項目に4時間を追加して欲しい

    【現在の仕様】
    セッション持続期間が現在のプルダウンメニューでは、2時間の次は8時間しかありません。

    【背景】
    利用する中で現在の2時間では短く、8時間では長いと感じています。
    セッション持続期間の項目を増やすことで、利用者ニーズに細かく対応したいため。

  13. Run User Activity Report with API

    We would like to be able to run User Activity Report through the API.
    Users, groups and affected folders/files can be selected as a filter to export/run this report against. But today, keyboard typings and mouse clicks are required to select each filtering, which would be unrealistic to specify tens or hundreds of users, groups, folders and/or files.
    Thus, We would need API to utilize/filter User Activity Report at scale.

  14. Register multiple certificates in the certificate presence function of Device Trust.

    Currently, only one certificate can be registered in the certificate presence function of Device Trust. This makes it very inconvenient when the certificate expires. Please make it possible to register multiple certificates to eliminate the time when the function cannot be used.

  15. I want to make it so that access statistics for operations by administrators are not left behind (stealth).

    【Current Specifications】

    1. Log in to the target user as a proxy and access the site.
      → The operation by the administrator is recorded as the access statistics of the proxy-logged user.

    2. Access from the "Contents" function of the management console.
      → The operation by the administrator is recorded as the access statistics of the administrator.

    【background】

    When a user deviates from the organization's rules (service rules, security rules, etc.) in the use of Box, a case is envisioned in which the administrator wants to view or download files owned by the user concerned as evidence of the deviation.
    If access…

  16. Operation history in box.com/folder/000000000/settings

    There isn't a way yet to see how and when the setting was changed. We're trying to know is who and when and how did the Collaboration and Privacy settings change on Admin Console User Activity reports.

  17. Admin configuration: Remove ability to download from all file and folder permissions

    Admin configuration: Remove ability to download from all file and folder permissions.

    For security conscious businesses, they want to give people access to edit, comment, view, etc., but not to download the file.

  18. Ability to prevent the admin passwords from expiring

    We have our copy machines scan documents directly into Box folders. However those processes periodically fail because Box currently has no ability to stop the Administrator password from expiring.

    Please allow an option in the Admin Console where you can select to have the Admin password not expire.

  20. Capture Device information in the User Activity Report

    We had a situation that ex-employee use Box Sync app using his personal laptop but Admin has no way to figure out whether he accessed them from corporate laptop or his personal laptop. The User Activity Report only shows ip address. It would be good to capture device name or OS version so Admin can double check what device this user is using when accessing synced files.
