  1. Make admin console reports (Folders & Files, Collaborations, Shared Links) run at scale

    I saw on the Community site that there is a 10 million item limit, but my company has way more items than that. It is important for us to have these reports for security audits.

  2. Support External Users in Box Groups

    Currently only Managed Users can be added to Groups in Box. This request is to allow both Managed and (NEW) External Users to be added as members of Groups to easier bulk collaborator management.

    We are beginning to develop solutions that will allow external users to be placed in groups. We’ll post an update when this feature officially makes it onto our roadmap.

  3. Enable scheduled reporting

    Would like the ability to schedule automation, as well as schedule report exports.

  4. Customize Collaborator Permission Levels

    Any chance that we can have some flexibility in the "Collaborator Permission Levels." Can we develop a tool to edit these levels, like check which function the user can have. Having set levels with no flexibility is difficult because every user needs different access.

  5. Allow admins to report on activity of external collaborators.

    We want to report on external collaborator usage of our specific content for a number of reasons:

    1) to be able to access if their external collaborators are no longer using our data and should be removed

    2) to help us understand how their internal users are working with people outside of the enterprise.

    Right now, the reporting is limited to showing when people have accepted folders, or users can go to access stats - neither of these options is sufficient.

    Ability to see activity of external Collaborators.
    a. Downloads, uploads, previews, edits, etc.
    b. We can see my managed…

    We have received a lot of feedback around a better need to audit external user activity in the enterprise. We are currently speaking to customers to see what information they’d like available in a report and how we might automate removal of inactive collaborators. Please continue to provide use cases in the comments and stay tuned for updates.

  6. Add "SSO Discovery Service Page" as a standard feature in Box login flow

    We have 5 ID Providers. Box proposed "SSO Discovery Service" to connect 5-IdPs and a Box tenant. But "Discovery Service" needs to build a public web site. We cannot build that site because of their security policy. Please prepare discovery page as a standard feature in Box login flow.

  7. Save the actual name of past collaborators on box rather than have them named prior collaborator

    Would like to have the ability to keep the name of a past collaborator on a Box file instead of it being named past collaborator

  8. Last Activity - Add 'Last Activity' Info & Sort Option to Managed Users Page

    We currently do not expose the 'Last Activity' field for Managed Users anywhere in the Admin Console. This is a very helpful piece of information for admins to have easy access to in order to get a good idea, quickly, whether a user has recently been active in Box or not. REQUEST: --Add a 'Last Activity' field/value for each user in the list of users on the Managed User page--Add 'Sort By: Last Active Date' to the Managed Users page so that admins can easily see who is recently (or not recently active)

  10. 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.

  11. Add external collaborator's expiration date on collaboration report

    In the collaboration report, there are invited date and accepted date, but there is no expiration date. Would it be possible to add expiration date in the collaboration report?
    Because it is too tough to confirm the expiration date one by one on the collaboration list page or using API, I demand the way to confirm enitre expiration date easily.

  12. Allow admins to see that a user is placed on the email suppression list

    When a user is placed on the email suppression list they are unable to receive any notifications from Box. When they create a support case with this helpdesk about this, time is wasted because they cannot see for themselves that this user is on the suppression list due to bouncing emails.

    This suggestion is not under consideration for our roadmap. We are currently focusing on improving the performance and UI to manage users in the Users & Groups tab. We will revisit this request to make removal of users from the suppression list self-service in the next 6 months. In the meantime, we will explore short-term options to notify the admin if a user is added to the suppression list.

  13. New type of user - Managed External User

    Box users need a way to: authenticate and manage external users + invite them to collaborate in a more efficient manner, similar to how it is done with managed users via groups.

  14. Report on installed Box Drive versions by user

    Need a report admins can run that will show all users who have ever used Drive and what the last version of Drive they last used was. Ideally there is a Device ID or Device Name as well.

    Use Case - Often admins do not have a device management system which would be used to run this report. Without that system in place OR without all devices being managed under it, admins have no visibility into what software is installed on their unmanaged users machines. Box won't be able to tell them all users who have it installed (if it…

  15. 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.

  16. "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" when running a report on a specific folder

    When running a report on a "Selected Folder" would be helpful to be able to "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" versus having to select each and every file/folder.

  17. Bulk Delete (Delete 2 or more users at once)

    Add a native Bulk Delete tool on the Users tab of the Admin Console to complement the existing Bulk Add and Bulk Edit tools that we already have. Key Asks: 1. Use a similar Excel sheet as the Bulk Add/Bulk Edit tool 2. Ability to have a column with the user email to be deleted 3. A column to choose who to automatically transfer the user's content to (the spreadsheet version of the existing Delete & Transfer UI that we have) 4. Columns to choose whether to notify each user (the user being deleted and the user receiving the deleted…

    We are not planning releasing bulk delete functionality at this time since we are focusing our efforts on building faster and more usable users pages. We will revisit this feature request next year.

  18. Auto-Created 'All Users' Group

    Add the option to the Groups tab to have a 'smart' group that auto-adds all Managed Users - this is a commonly used practice to provide all users with a 'getting started' folder, but currently must be either managed manually or sent to Box via SAML (meaning the customer must keep the group updated in AD).

  19. Request Compliance Reports from Admin Console

    It would be great if customers could request SOC reports (and possibly other Compliance reports) directly from the Admin Console. This way requests go to the right people right away, expediting the report return rate!

    As we work to build out a more robust compliance framework, this is absolutely something we’ll be considering. However, it is not on the near-term roadmap.

  20. User-Level Sharing Controls: Control sharing permissions at the User level

    This request is specific to controlling external sharing permissions and defaults at the user level. For example, an admin should be able to permit whether a user can generate Open Shared Links (e.g., disable open links per user), invite external collaborators, and the default shared link permission that is generated by that user, even if those users are within a folder that has external sharing enabled.

    We are currently focused on building groups for access to 1st and 3rd party apps and specific enterprise settings in Box rather than focusing on groups or individual users for sharing controls. Uservoice request here: pulse.box.com/admin/v3/suggestions/36670615

    To achieve granular sharing controls, you can explore using Box Shield to classify sensitive content and set access policies to that content.
