  1. bulk manage Shared Links

    Provide a way for all shared links in an account to have their permission levels / access levels / expiry dates modified in bulk, rather than having to change each one individually which is extremely time consuming for large doc sets.

  2. Open Shared Link Controls: Default Password Requirements for Open Shared Links

    REQUEST: Admin would like the ability to set a global control whereby all public/open ('people with the link') links must have a password.Our current controls on shared links impact all 3 Shared Link permissions causing additional impact on the user experience.

    Instead of “require password” security control, we intend to support “Require OTP” requirement for public links (via SMS, Email, or TOTP). I wanted to share where we are headed. We do not plan on delivering this ask as is, but we do intend to solve the security use case behind it.

    Please comment if you disagree.

  3. Send a "here's how your items are shared" report to each user periodically

    One of the most common sources of security breaches is due to a user inadvertently sharing an item more broadly or for longer than they intended.

    A simple way to help limit those sorts of security breaches would be for Box to email every user a report periodically (configurable by the admin, but roughly monthly) that said "Here's how everything you own is shared with other people, and here's a link to the KB article that'll tell you how to fix it if it's not what you want", then showed a report of their folders, files, and shared links, with…

  5. Allow the use of Linux devices as approved devices.

    We had Linux based user using Box web console and as of the July update, they are no longer able to access Box. I would like to see Linx OS be added to the approved Operating Systems list in the Admin Console for enterprise settings.

  6. Shared Link Lookup Tool

    Problem: Admins often need to do investigation of files stored in Box and all they have to go off of is the file/folder's shared link. Since admins can't search by shared link in the current Content Manager UI, a Shared Link Lookup tool would provide similar information. Key Features:-Provide ability to enter a shared link (standard or vanity URL)-Information returned after searching: -File/folder name -File/folder owner -File/folder location (Owner -> Folder hierarchy) -Status (whether the file/folder has been deleted or not) -Admin-level 'delete' (ability for the admin to delete the file on the spot)

  7. Add hardware token security for 2FA

    Yubikeys and similar devices allow for hardware token security and are highly recommended. We want to implement it across devices (ipad, iphone, android, MacOS, Windows) and this must include Box

    SMS 2 factor is considered very hackable and has been hacked many times.
    How can we use Yubikeys with Box.com ? What are your plans on this?

  8. External 2FA - use email instead of SMS

    2FA for external users - have the option to have the second factor email instead of text. Or give the option for either text or email.

  9. Custom Watermarking based on metadata or manually.

    Opportunity where main requirement was to distribute content to various locations, but add custom watermarking as they are published out. Typically with the location name content is publisehd to.

  10. 'Email Shared Link' - Add Reporting for the Recipient (Who the shared links were sent to)

    When sending shared link emails (via the Shared Link modal -> Email Shared Link option) we do not report on who we sent the email to.REQUEST: In the UI and Excel exports, add information on who the shared link email was sent to.

  12. Integration with Azure Information Protection

    Azure Information Protection allows for the classification of files/content. I would like for Box to recognize the Azure IP Classification that has been applied to any given file once uploaded to Box and have a corresponding Box Classification policy applied to the file.

    The ability of reading the Microsoft Information Protection labels and automatically applying them as Box classification labels is on the near-term roadmap.

  13. Add granularity to shared link controls

    Based on organizational requirements and the variance, there should be additional controls such as limiting the capability to create shared links (open Links) to Admins or designated personnel as an option. This would allow for greater granularity as some divisions within an organization may have a need to share publicly, while also securing sensitive information

    For now, we are focussed on solving bulk management issues with Shared Links.

    Box Shield is an additional option for enforcing granular controls on content.

  14. Proper 2-factor authentication with TOTP not SMS

    Using SMS for 2-factor authentication is oudated and insecure. Using TOTP is an industry standard and should be implemented.

  15. Enforce parent folder collaboration restrictions on moved folders

    Make sure that folder settings apply to all the subfolders. Currently, even if you restrict collaboration to within your company through folder settings, a folder that is already collaborated to external users can be moved into that folder. Right now, we don’t have the mechanism to check if a folder that is about to be moved is collaborated to external user.

  16. Open Shared Link Controls: Prevent Open Shared Folder Links without Disabling Company Folder Shared Links

    Right now you can't disable Open folder links without disabling Company folder links. The native Box setting for this is too restrictive (prevents sharing folders internally other than via collaboration).

  18. Collaborator Expiration - Include Co-Owner(s) in the Email Notification

    Current Behavior: --Email Notification - Sent to 'affected users' (defined as Folder Owner and the original Inviter, aka the person who invited in the collaborator who is about to expire) --Ability to Extend Expiration Date - Folder Owner & Co-OwnersREQUEST: Add Co-Owner(s) to the email notification distribution so that they can take the burden off the folder owner (since co-owners already have the ability to extend the expiration date).

  19. Automate quarantining of infected files

    While speaking with Box Premiere Support Team, it was stated that there is no current option/means to automatically place an infected file into quarantine. The file stays available and is up to the Content Owner/Site Admin to manually address the issue.

    It would be nice to have a feature that automatically placed suspicious/infected files in a designated quarantine folder while it is being reviewed. This will eliminate the potential for someone to accidentally download the file and cause potential harm.
