  3. Box Report file management improvement

    Currently every generated report goes into Box Reports folder, making it rather difficult to neatly manage large number of report files.
    If it could be set to automatically sort report files into certain designated subfolders, etc., it would be convenient.
    I would also like the auto-generated report file names be customisable.

  4. Workflow status report

    We would like to have a report that gives us insight into the status of Box workflows. We would like to be able to see the individual steps of a workflow and how long the individual steps take, for example, to see if and where a workflow is stuck.

  5. Enable Box Admin (Content) search results to populate full-width screen, and shown FULL path of content

    Having searched for a string " " in Box Admin/Content, the results for a folder do not show the FULL path of that folder, because the full path length is too long for the report width.

    I have been advised by Box Support that this is expected.

    I suggest that the report width should not be hard-wired (as is currently) to fit laptop-width. Instead, the folder path should wrap onto a new row, or if screen-size allows (eg external monitor), the full path is shown on the same row.

    It should also be possible for users to change the width…

  6. Enhance Box Reports to store metadata (parameters used) in output folder

    Box Admin users regularly run several reports in a day or week, and may not read the content until days after run, and is difficult to identify the purpose it was run for, and the parameters used.

    It would be helpful, and not difficult to do, for Box to save the parameters used when creating a report, and perhaps offer users a free-text field to store (at the time it is run) the reasons why it was being run

    The following details should be available to view, when a report is completed:
    - report type (eg Box Sign, Classification, Collaborations,…

  8. Collaboration Report - Add Last Accessed Column

    Box Admin frequently runs reports on all external collaborators who they work with and wants to remove external collaborators from files that they haven't accessed in awhile. Wants to be able to run a report that filters to all external collaborators and allows you to see the files that they are collaborated on AND the last date that they accessed those files. This will help the admin determine if an external collaborator can be removed from a file. The collaborator report allows you to do most of this. However, the Collaborator report is missing a "last accessed" column. The request…

  10. Email-to-folder Security Concern - Need Visibility

    Need a report based on email-to-folder entries. Our cyber-security platform recently flagged a change in auto-forwarding to a Box email address (one of those cryptic folder addresses), but I cannot find the folder that contains the feature turned on. The User Activity Report has a column, "Details" that shows "Service: Email Folder," but I don't see our suspect folder listed. Maybe there have been no emails going there yet- but this is a security concern that needs clarification. Should be an easy report to build, the records exist in your database. Thanks.

  11. Folder and file reports are output in a tree format, making it easier to understand the folder hierarchy.

    The new platform version of the Folders and Files report is sorted by creation date by default.
    This does not fulfill the role of a folder tree report.
    If folders are not specified, sorting by all folder/file IDs, etc. into a tree format is impractical and affects business operations

    「フォルダ・ファイルレポートがツリー形式で出力されることによって、フォルダ階層が分かりやすくなる。」

    新プラットフォーム版のフォルダとファイルレポートはデフォルトで作成日順でソートされます。
    これではフォルダツリーレポートの役割を果たしていません。
    フォルダを指定しない場合、すべてのフォルダ・ファイルID等でツリー形式にソートするのは現実的ではなく業務に影響します。

  12. Ability to detect which Box client is running on a user's device

    It would be very helpful to build out functionality to detect which Box client is installed on a user's machine from within the portal to assist with product troubleshooting.

  13. Allow the custom renaming of a report before it's run

    All the reports have a standard name (i.e. useractivityrunon2022-11-01-14-38-28Page1) and there is no ability to create a custom name. As an admin we run more than a single report in an hour and that report may be associated with a user or file name we're searching for. We need the ability to be able to customize the report name that is relevant so we don't have 5-10 reports running that all start with useractivityrunon{date and time} for example.

  14. Add column to Shared Link report "user who created shared link"

    Please add information about the user who created shared link to Shared Link report.
    Using User Activity report is NOT an effective solution to decipher information who created the shared link and on what folder/file.

  15. I want to output all collaborated listings including subfolders.

    In the Collaboration Report, please add collaboration information that includes subfolders of the folder to which the user is invited.
    The existing feature only allows information on folders to which users are invited.

    Once this functionality is implemented, the administrator will be able to see all folders to which the user is collaborating, and will be able to create management reports seamlessly.

    and seamlessly generate management reports.

    この機能が実現されると、管理者はユーザーがコラボレーションしているすべてのフォルダを把握する事ができ、
    シームレスに管理レポートを作成することがでるようになります。

  16. Pulling file-level user activity reports in bulk

    I am trying to run a user activity report in Box. What I am hoping to see is which users accessed a set of files during a certain period of time.

    I ran the User Activity report in Reports against the parent folders that I was hoping to review, the activity log that came back only shows actions taken on the parent folders, no activity is shown for any of the files within the folders.

    Support has confirmed that there is no way to run this report against the sub-folders and sub-files of the folders selected.

    Having this functionality is…

  17. Custom Identifiers that can be seen in user reports

    Customer Requests the ability to upload custom identifiers that can be seen when running user reports. Currently they use the user's email address to determine if a license is needed, and when a name change occurs, this creates confusion as it appears that the person may have left and the license is no longer needed.

  18. View saved reports generated by other users

    Currently, a co-admin can view reports run by other users, but not save reports created by other users. We would like our IT Service Desk to create on demand monthly reports that we would provide to some of our content owners. This would require all members of our IT Service Desk to have visibility over all existing scheduled reports

  19. Consistent data size output from folder and file report

    Don't shorten, or allow us to choose if we want the file sizes shortened (KB, MB, GB) when calling the Files & Folders report. Full data sizes would allow for much more consistent and streamlined ingestion into data analytics tools like PowerBi.

  20. Ability to export "Direct Links" from box in reports

    We have the ability to export "Shared links" but would like the ability to also export "Directly Links" as well.

    We use box to host 6k plus folders and files. Inside those are some PNG files that , when direct links are on can open up directly to the PNG file instead of the traditional view with the box logo on the top left. This helps us post product in our website with a more professional full screen view that direct links provide.
