  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Add comment to each user in Admin

    I would like to add comment/remarks on each user in the admin console so that I can see which department each user belongs.

  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. 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

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Improvements on output of collaboration report

    There is a time lag in the output of the collaboration report.

    There is a 24-hour time lag since the recent revision.
    I would like to see improvements so that the content of the collaboration report is reflected in real time.

  10. Add a folder in Bulk

    It would be nice to have the ability to create a folder one time, but as a waterfall in hundreds of other folders. Instead of adding the same sub-folder under all 300 main folders individually, there needs to be a way to add the same sub-folder to all main folders in one step.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.…

  13. I would like the ability to customize Box invite emails

    For example when a managed user Shares to an external user (who happens to use the same email domain but is not a part of our organization) I would like the email link that they are sent to prompt them to create a FREE Box account NOT be added to our Enterprise automatically.

    There should be a setting in our Enterprise that allows me to toggle on or off the custom sign in/sign up link that is presented to the recipient of a Share email.

    Not everyone with the same domain is part of the same organization.

  14. Box Reports User Details - Distinguish download to local disk vs. download using Box Drive

    Want a way to tell if the user downloaded it locally to their machine vs. just opening the doc via Box Drive/Office App/Box website. This feature would be extremely helpful to when a user is leaving the company and we want to know if they are “taking company docs”. Having “download” for simply opening and editing a doc is mis-leading. Would be super helpful to differentiate between the two.

  17. Make bulk user upload more robust and improve error notifications

    I attempted to bulk-add ~250 users. This turned into a long run of whack-a-mole and required Box Product Support intervention because:

    a) Rows that did not have errors were not processed
    b) Rows that did have errors sometimes failed silently (sometimes perhaps caused by secondary email addresses or external email addresses)

    My net experience was getting not-particularly-actionable errors like this:

    Because some of the information in the file you uploaded may have contained errors or conflicts, not all users were added to your Box account successfully.

    Of the 221 users in the file you uploaded, 221 users were not added…

  18. 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。

  20. 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.
