  1. Allow the "User Activity" report to be run for a folder and all sub-folders & content within that folder

    Today, the admin may select to run the "User Activity" report for a particular folder. When run for a particular folder, the report will only filter on the contents of the selected folder, and not the contents of subfolders within. Request that the report includes the folder and all sub-folders & contents within that folder, removing the need to run the report at the enterprise level and filtering to a particular folder path from there.

  2. Accessibility - Update 'Not Part of [Organization]?' text on company-specific URL's to indicate that it is a link for screen readers

    We have a company URL, for example organization.box.com; there is a link that reads, "Not a part of [organization]?" Clicking it brings you to the generic Box login page. However, this text is not handled correctly by screen readers. We propose that this should be updated for the benefit of our current and future clients who may rely on a screen reader.

    From our accessibility department: "So when the screen reader gets to that line, it does not indicate that it needs to be clicked "if you are not part of [the organization]." It is vague, and does not guide…

  4. Add “Specify when started” option in “Send a notification” outcome

    There is an option “Specify when started” in “Assign a task” outcome. It would be convenient to have a similar option in “Send a notification” outcome, since the recipients might vary depending on who started the workflow.

  5. Copy file in workflow should create a new version if file already exists

    I am creating Quality Management workflows. At the end of the workflow the released document is copied to a new area, that is shared with the consumers of the QM-documentation.

    Works fine the first time we run the workflows. If we update the document and run the workflow again, the target file is not versioned: we get a new file with the same name and a timestamp added to it.

    I appreciate this behaviour in some situations and understand why you have chosen this solution. However we would like to have the option in the workflow to "version the file,…

  6. Email File Request Link from Box

    Add ability to email file request links directly from Box (similar to collaboration invites). This would allow customers to audit who sent out file request link/ when.

  7. Block file extensions lists in Shield malware detection

    As part of Governance it is possible to move certain file types to a Quarantine folder. This is useful for a lot of ransomwares, as they change the extension of files.

    Currently this "old" functionality has not yet been moved to Shield. Shield does have a malware detection, which uses threat detection technology. We would like to have the ability to extend this with a list of known extensions.

  10. Create reports for Shield actions/tracking

    Create reporting for Shield activities, including the following:
    1) Classifications applied by their name (i.e. 'externalpublic used on 157 folders/files'). This would help determine popular and unpopular classifications.
    2) User who applied the classification label and each time they applied one (i.e. Person A applied shield classification labels on 10/1, 10/2, 10/3, etc). Helps see who is using the labels and how frequently.
    3) User and which label they applied (i.e. Person B applied the external
    public label on 10/1, 10/2, 10/3, etc.). Helps see a combo of the above two bullets.
    4) Number of times a shield classification…

  11. Not able to see all the overdue tasks for all users

    Currently I only can see the overdue tasks assigned to myself and the tasks I sent to others. We would like to see overall overdue tasks for all groups and other users. This overdue report is very important to our business process.

  12. Please include a list of hard/soft limitations on the BoxSupport page, as described in "Product and API Scale Guidelines"

    Please include a list of hard/soft limitations on the BoxSupport page, as described in "Product and API Scale Guidelines".
    This information is currently available on request.
    However, hard/soft limits are variable information and you will need to request information on a regular basis.
    When obtaining the information on an request basis, there is a time lag before the contents are known.
    We always want to get the latest information independently ourselves, so we would like Box Support to keep us up to date with the latest informations.

    BoxSupportのページに、「製品およびAPIの規模に関するガイドライン」に記載されているような、ハードリミット/ソフトリミットの一覧を記載してください。
    この情報は現在、リクエストに応じて提供されています。
    しかし、ハードリミット/ソフトリミットは変動する情報なので、定期的に情報をリクエストする必要があります。

    リクエストベースで情報を入手する場合、内容が判明するまでにタイムラグが生じます。
    私たちは常に最新の情報を自身で入手したいと考えておりますので、Box Supportページには常に最新の情報を提供していただきたいと思います。

  13. Allow bulk actions to be interrupted (such as copy/move/restore/delete)

    When users copy / move / restore / delete a large number of items, we want them to be able to cancel if they notice a mistake along the way.
    Currently, when processing a large number of items in Box, we need to wait until the process is completed even if we notice a mistake.
    When processing large numbers of items, processing may require several days.
    During that time, folders and files are locked.
    Please make it possible to interrupt the process on the way.

  14. Add fixed-width font options

    Ticket # INC4849532 - Customer wants to use Box Notes to write documents that contain code-snippets and excerpts from logs. They would like to use a fixed-width font for these snippets, but Box Notes doesn't allow them to select font and there's no style for fixed-width.

    The issue is the same as the one described in this forum post: https://community.box.com/t5/Web-App-Forum/Boxnote-fixed-width-font/td-p/31194

  16. I want you to be able to save the marked-up PDF data stand alone,or print.

    I want you to be able to save the marked-up PDF data stand alone,or print.
    Now, every member can mark up PDF data at once, but we cannot save the data as evidence or log of checking. if we can save the data as marked-up PDF in local folder it helps us very much.Because we who work for building architecture, have to check

    thousands of drawings and have to save these checked data.

  17. Available get to 'My Collections' other than favorites via API

    In 3rd-party app, My Collection is a very good idea as a way to provide quick access to users.
    But, it can only take favorites.
    Please let me get 'My Collections' other than favorites.

    https://developer.box.com/reference/get-collections/
    Currently, only the favorites collection is supported.

  18. Classified contents report

    We would like to list the contents based on the classification, to find classified contents stored in unexpected folder.
    Some of sensitive contents need to be strictly controlled and stored in the proper folder.

  19. Insights map uses wrong geoip database

    We have noticed that the map displayed on the insights page does not use the same information the report attached to the map does. On the map we see connections to countries that are not in the report.

    This massively reduces the value of the map and has raised multiple security alerts, as we see connections from countries on our "forbidden list" that we cannot explain with the report.

    Lack of correct information is removing trust in the overall solution in our security department. This should be fixed soon.
