  1. 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…

  2. Ability to set a display image for the group

    I want to be able to set any image in the group.
    Because it can be difficult to understand the purpose of a group just by the name of the group.
    The image should be set to make it easier to understand what the group is.

  3. Allow for multiple primary admins

    There are several functions within the Admin Console that are only accessible to the primary admin. Setting up SSO for example requires the primary admin, and co-admins are unable to integrate with SSO. In many environments there will not be a single administrator with privileged access across multiple systems, which means the primary admin role will need to be assigned and re-assigned multiple times to perform necessary tasks.

    To promote a secure environment where tasks may need to be performed by multiple administrators, I would request either 1) admin console allow for multiple users in the primary admin role, or…

  6. Change Geographic Activity highlighted country from blue to red

    When the geographic activity shows the activity of a country it is circled blue. Can you change the circle blue into something like red because it is sometimes hard to see the circle since the colour is similar to the map.

  7. Admin aggregate account-wide trash folder

    It would be helpful to have access to an aggregate Trash folder for the entire account such that finding recently deleted items is as easy as browsing to that folder and sorting by date deleted.

  8. Ability to restrict target users who can be logged in login as user by admin and co-admin

    When investigating internal fraud, for example, the login as user function may be used to log in to the user under investigation. Currently, all users can log in if they have login as user privileges.

    For example, it is possible to access management user accounts and top secret information.
    Therefore, we would like to see a function implemented to limit the target users who can log in.

  9. Deactivate all shared links at once

    Problem: Shared link sprawl due to poor/absent use of shared link expiration features, with no way to remove them in bulk. Our organization now has upwards of 40k shared links that we have no way of clearing feasibly.

    Solution: Option of deactivating all shared links for an organization.

  10. Lack of reports on copy operations to external folders

    We strongly request the improvement of the display specification when the log of copying an item to an external tenant's folder is output to the report.

    In the current specification, when the destination folder is an external tenant, the report only shows the copied file as "External File".
    In other words, we can determine "who" copied "when" and "some file," but we cannot determine "where" and "what" was copied.

    We believe this is a major problem in monitoring and preventing information leaks.
    I thought it was one of Box's great strengths that most of the operation logs are stored and…

  11. Admin Console Report - Deployment Trends

    A report in the admin console that tracks licenses deployed over a set period of time (e.g. month-to-month) would be helpful for understanding deployment trends and ensuring we have purchased adequate seats for our enterprise.

  12. Remove greyed out options for editable shared links

    Remove greyed out options for editable shared links if the edit option has been removed from the enterprise settings. It causes end user confusion and would rather have it not be visible if the admin/IT/Security teams choose to not elect to have this available within enterprise settings.

  13. Allow stricter control of file deletes

    We require the facility to prevent users from deleting files but allow them to Upload a new file version that has a different name to the current one. This is because our standard file name format includes our own version number. We had hoped that Viewer/Uploader permission would allow this, but it doesn't .

  14. Ability to edit the Admin Contact e-mail address

    I understand that the 'Admin Contact' is always the e-mail address of the primary admin account and cannot be changed.

    We think it would be useful to be able to amend this to an alternate e-mail address (e.g. our Helpdesk) both for support productivity and security.

  15. Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    Report on new data platform doesn't reflect latest information

    To improve report performance, Box migrated legacy to new data platform on collaboration report recently. However, new one will take about 24 hours to reflect latest data into exported report. It could be harder for admin to audit new collaboration on enterprise using report feature. There are two request for this change :

    • Make sure that admin knows when the exported report is as of
    • Reflect much faster like User Detail Report which can reflect 1 hours ago

  17. Adding more functionality of Box Drive enhancements into the Admin Console

    My customer has deployed Box Drive out to most of their employees and it has been widely adopted across their organization. What they are now having trouble with is that there are security concerns when it comes to their employees having personal Drive accounts so they want to the functionality built in to Admin Console to force log out their users in Box Drive - as of right now many of the Admin functionality relate to Box Sync and Admins do not have the option to make changes on the Box Drive functionality

  18. Users who have permission to output reports should be able to select "target folders and files" within the scope of their access rights

    Under the current specification, only administrators or authorized co-administrators can select the "target folders and files" when outputting the User Activity Report.
    For the sake of business efficiency, I would like to see users who have permission to output reports be able to select "target folders and files" within the scope of their access rights.

    現在の仕様では、ユーザーアクティビティレポートを出力の際管理者または、権限の付与された共同管理者のみ「対象のフォルダとファイル」が選択可能です。
    これをレポート出力権限を持っているユーザーは、業務効率上、自分のアクセス権がある範囲の中で「対象のフォルダとファイル」を選択できるようにしてほしい。

  19. Automatic Image folder in chronological order

    As an administrator would be great to have all image files collected automatically in a single location where it would be shared easily with the team regardless of where the individual filed it. Need a global visual in chronological order.

    Include select items or all feature.

  20. Exception to password expiration rule

    There is a need to allow for specific user accounts to have a longer password expiration policy applied to them. However, Box's policy is EID-wide, which means that there has to be workarounds to deal with specific use-cases in which the user accounts require longer password expiration.

    It would be great if there could be an exception added to the user account like what Box does with device pinning. This would be an easy solution to the problem, the admin could go into the users' settings, provide their password expiration time frame as the exception.
