  1. Allow the "User Activity" report to be run for a folder and all sub-folders & content within that folder

    Today, the admin may select to run the "User Activity" report for a particular folder. When run for a particular folder, the report will only filter on the contents of the selected folder, and not the contents of subfolders within. Request that the report includes the folder and all sub-folders & contents within that folder, removing the need to run the report at the enterprise level and filtering to a particular folder path from there.

  3. filter the activity report with specific classification

    We want to get the activity reports for specific classification(just like specifying the folder).

    We need to audit user activities for confidential files every quarter. Current activity reports can only specify the user, date, folder and action, not classification.

  5. 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

    (Japanese)
    「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。

  7. 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.

    (Japanese)

    【サブフォルダ含むすべてのコラボレートされた一覧を出力したい】
    コラボレーションレポートにおいて、ユーザーが招待されているフォルダのサブフォルダを含むコラボレーション情報を追加してください。
    既存の機能ではユーザーが招待されているフォルダの情報のみ確認できます。

    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。

  8. Groups exportable Report needed

    I think every organization's admin could use a quick User Groups report. Essentially it would look like the Groups page, with the addition of Shared Folders and names of members.

    Columns:
    Group Name
    Created Date
    Number of Members
    Group's Admins
    Group Members (Names)
    Group Description
    Shared Group Folders

  9. 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. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Select box reports export folder

    With the new scheduled report capability, it would be useful to determine the folder where scheduled report are exported as a way to grant access to a range of users. Whilst we can now select who are the viewers for a report, this is not ideal as people change roles, and therefore a location or a Box Group would be much more convenient ways to share scheduled reports

  20. 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.
