  1. Allow beta, 1st party, and 3rd party app whitelisting for Groups in addition to users

    When Box launches a beta for a feature, we can now opt-in to the beta directly from the Admin Console - which is great!

    Currently there are 4 options to enable:
    -- Enable for all managed users
    -- Enable for select managed users (whitelist)
    -- Enable for all managed users except specific users (blacklist)
    -- Disable for all managed users

    This request is to allow admins to select Groups for the whitelist in addition to Users which are already supported.

    We are currently developing solutions to enable 1st / 3rd party apps and specific enterprise settings by groups of users in the enterprise. We will provide an update when this makes it onto the roadmap.

  2. Log Access Policy Violations

    Box currently only logs successful actions. We would like to see when a user attempts to share content that is blocked by Shield Access policies. From a DLP and insider threat perspective this would be huge in determining what people are attempting to do, not just what they are successful at doing.

  3. Return character in Classification Definition

    Currently "Classification Definition" can be written with 'return character' in its input form. But when this "Classification Definition" is shown to the user, 'return character' is being ignored and is shown in one line.

    Definition needs to be shown in the same way it was written / configured, and also needs to be shown in several lines when required (e.g. written in multiple languages where each language's definition needs to be shown in each line, instead of all in single line).

  4. Remove multiple collaborators from folders

    Box currently does not have a way to remove multiple collaborators at bulk.
    Currently, admin needs to manually remove multiple users by opening the appropriate folder and removing users one at a time.

    Suggestion can also apply to removing collaborators from multiple folders.

    We’re definitely considering this feature given the pain points that users are facing today! Please comment with your specific use cases and the challenges you’re facing so our team can prioritize and solution accordingly.

  5. Comments / Tasks from Desktop (Box Drive)

    In order to currently leave a comment on a file we have to right click on it, click on view on Box drive, which opens chrome, loads the file, then click on the comment icon on the right and then leave our comment

    A quicker and much simpler way of doing this would be to bring in comments and tasks into the box drive app to save us all of those steps of having to do this through our browser. There are a couple ways of doing this

    1) Bring in notifications, tasks and a comment stream into the system…

  6. Real-time security dashboard

    We want a realtime dashboard that shows flow and actions around content. Would give security researchers insight into security events happening in their instance.

  8. Add hardware token security for 2FA

    Yubikeys and similar devices allow for hardware token security and are highly recommended. We want to implement it across devices (ipad, iphone, android, MacOS, Windows) and this must include Box

    SMS 2 factor is considered very hackable and has been hacked many times.
    How can we use Yubikeys with Box.com ? What are your plans on this?

  9. Pop-up message when unintentionally shifting folders

    It is strongly needed to have a pop-up message with Box Drive and Box Sync that allows the user to stop an unintentional shift of folders or files.

  11. Using Smart Access

    When entering a List when creating a Shield Smart Access Policy, have drop down appear that shows all available lists with short descriptions so the user doesn't have to try to remember the names of the lists they created or what they generally contain.

  12. Improve Box Drive memory usage

    Box recommend 4GB of RAM as minimum system specifications. But 4GB of RAM is not enough since Box Drive tends to use more than 1GB memory when a user open folder which has a lot of items. Therefore the fetching function should be improved to run efficiently on 4GB of RAM

    We are always striving to make improvements here. There won’t be one release were we resolve this issue though. Instead, there will be trying to make incremental improvements in all Box Drive releases.

  13. Report on who has Relay enabled

    Ability to report on who has Relay enabled in an enterprise account. Via "Export users" would be nice, but not even Box's own reporting team can produce this data right now which is unfathomable.

  16. Custom Apps Report

    We have many app integrations with Box. Some are Custom Apps and most of them are out of box applications. I need to find a way to identify who authenticated for these apps (which user initiated the integration).

  17. In the Box for Oracle NetSuite add the ability of the File Request so that users in NetSuite can create the link.

    User can create a folder and setup a File Request link using the web interface so that external users can upload files without having to create free account to be able to upload the file.

    This ability does not exist inside the Box for Oracle NetSuite integration. This will make the NetSuite user go to Box on the web to enable this link.

  18. Indicate whether a user is a managed user or app user in Admin event stream

    Adding a parameter in the Admin event stream which indicates whether the user that took an action was a managed user or app user would make it more efficient for administrators or analytics tools to separate activity by the different user types. In an active enterprise the volume of events may be very great, and having this additional level of specificity would simplify reporting.

  19. Report with enabled/disabled apps in Individual Application Controls

    I would like to be able to get a list of all apps that are enabled/disabled in the Individual Application Controls in the Admin console. It doesn’t look like I can get a list from the reports options. This is under Apps within the Enterprise settings menu.
