  1. Allow Administrators to View User Account Password

    Allow Administrators to View User Account Password. I have a user at my company who does not wish to reset their password, and we are unable to view what the current password is set to. This appears to be a common issue that could have a simple solution.

  2. Ability to export file requests dashboard

    With time, many file requests have been created. The file request dashboard is a welcome addition, however additional features would be needed so we can actually take actions:
    - export all active file requests filtered by Box Group so that we can share that with champions for different departments to look into
    - search/filter by user and folder name

  3. Reduce welcome messages

    The ability to turn off welcome messages when a new user logs in. Its very busy for the user to have to click through a bunch of screens showing all the features and then have a another window on the side showing how to do things.

  5. Folder ownership transfer warning message

    When transferring ownership of folders, there is no warning message that it will take some time, and no warning that it will make those folders/files inoperable until every folder has been successfully transfered to a new user.

    Can we please add a warning that ownership changes to folders will sometimes take days depending on the file size, and that none of the files/folders can be used until the ownership transfer is complete? Not having this warning caused 4 days of downtime for my company.

  6. Ability to manage suppression lists

    Administrator not able monitor and allow to release own User from Suppression List is a big not good (Cause we won’t know if anyone being accidentally suppress. Till next time User alert and we check to email Spam, check external Mail Security than last check to BOX). When User being capture and put under Suppression List can the system send Administrator notification message and preview and/or release; instead log case check to BOX Support??!

  7. Deactivate all shared links at once

    Problem: Shared link sprawl due to poor/absent use of shared link expiration features, with no way to remove them in bulk. Our organization now has upwards of 40k shared links that we have no way of clearing feasibly.

    Solution: Option of deactivating all shared links for an organization.

  8. List of current logged in users

    It would be nice if Box could provide a list of current logged in users. If this already exists I am not aware of it. Please advise.

  9. Allow stricter control of file deletes

    We require the facility to prevent users from deleting files but allow them to Upload a new file version that has a different name to the current one. This is because our standard file name format includes our own version number. We had hoped that Viewer/Uploader permission would allow this, but it doesn't .

  10. Ability to edit the Admin Contact e-mail address

    I understand that the 'Admin Contact' is always the e-mail address of the primary admin account and cannot be changed.

    We think it would be useful to be able to amend this to an alternate e-mail address (e.g. our Helpdesk) both for support productivity and security.

  11. Change Geographic Activity highlighted country from blue to red

    When the geographic activity shows the activity of a country it is circled blue. Can you change the circle blue into something like red because it is sometimes hard to see the circle since the colour is similar to the map.

  12. Admin aggregate account-wide trash folder

    It would be helpful to have access to an aggregate Trash folder for the entire account such that finding recently deleted items is as easy as browsing to that folder and sorting by date deleted.

  13. Ability to set a display image for the group

    I want to be able to set any image in the group.
    Because it can be difficult to understand the purpose of a group just by the name of the group.
    The image should be set to make it easier to understand what the group is.

  14. Adding more functionality of Box Drive enhancements into the Admin Console

    My customer has deployed Box Drive out to most of their employees and it has been widely adopted across their organization. What they are now having trouble with is that there are security concerns when it comes to their employees having personal Drive accounts so they want to the functionality built in to Admin Console to force log out their users in Box Drive - as of right now many of the Admin functionality relate to Box Sync and Admins do not have the option to make changes on the Box Drive functionality

  15. Automatic Image folder in chronological order

    As an administrator would be great to have all image files collected automatically in a single location where it would be shared easily with the team regardless of where the individual filed it. Need a global visual in chronological order.

    Include select items or all feature.

  16. Exception to password expiration rule

    There is a need to allow for specific user accounts to have a longer password expiration policy applied to them. However, Box's policy is EID-wide, which means that there has to be workarounds to deal with specific use-cases in which the user accounts require longer password expiration.

    It would be great if there could be an exception added to the user account like what Box does with device pinning. This would be an easy solution to the problem, the admin could go into the users' settings, provide their password expiration time frame as the exception.

  17. Include file and folder IDs in user activity report

    Running a user activity report for a deleted user shows the parent folder names the user was removed from, but no ID so there is no way to determine which folder they were removed from. (i.e. a searching for the parent folder called ACE returns 180 such folders).

  18. Collaborations Report: Add Folder Filter

    My customer would like to filter down to a specific parent folder and see a report on all collaborators on that root folder and all child folders below. Right now the Collaborations report shows ALL folders which takes a long time to run and requires filtering after the report is run. Ideally we could filter to the correct folder at the beginning.

  19. When an email address is marked as undeliverable, show that status in the console

    When your system marks an email address as undeliverable, there's currently no way to see that in the admin console. The Resend Invite button is available but the invite will never be sent because you're suppressing the address.

    In an ideal world, we'd be able to see that and toggle the status, but even if we could just see the status it would save time.

  20. Ability to restrict target users who can be logged in login as user by admin and co-admin

    When investigating internal fraud, for example, the login as user function may be used to log in to the user under investigation. Currently, all users can log in if they have login as user privileges.

    For example, it is possible to access management user accounts and top secret information.
    Therefore, we would like to see a function implemented to limit the target users who can log in.
