  1. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  2. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

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

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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)

  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.

    not planned  ·  katiele responded

    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.

  14. 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.

  15. Add Classification and Metadata information to Folders and Files Report

    When running the folders files report, have it list out the classification tag that is added to each file, along with any metadata information that has been added.

    There are certain prerequisites for enabling reporting with classification tags and metadata, and we will be working on those in the near future. Once those requisites are in place, we will be able to consider delivering reporting around these two features.

  16. 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.

  17. "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.

  18. 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…

  20. Run User Activity Report with API

    We would like to be able to run User Activity Report through the API.
    Users, groups and affected folders/files can be selected as a filter to export/run this report against. But today, keyboard typings and mouse clicks are required to select each filtering, which would be unrealistic to specify tens or hundreds of users, groups, folders and/or files.
    Thus, We would need API to utilize/filter User Activity Report at scale.
