  1. 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.

  2. Operation history in box.com/folder/000000000/settings

    There isn't a way yet to see how and when the setting was changed. We're trying to know is who and when and how did the Collaboration and Privacy settings change on Admin Console User Activity reports.

  3. 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.

  4. Don't point users to the EID's Primary Admin when users try to access a disabled app

    Don't point users to the EID's Primary Admin when users try to access a disabled app. This is problematic for our larger customers as it prompts the user to reach out to an email address that may not be monitored or inundates the admin with what should be HelpDesk tickets.

  5. Insights map uses wrong geoip database

    We have noticed that the map displayed on the insights page does not use the same information the report attached to the map does. On the map we see connections to countries that are not in the report.

    This massively reduces the value of the map and has raised multiple security alerts, as we see connections from countries on our "forbidden list" that we cannot explain with the report.

    Lack of correct information is removing trust in the overall solution in our security department. This should be fixed soon.

  6. Ability to set Default Collaboration Role to Viewer-Uploader

    Please allow the ability to set Default Collaboration Role in admin console to Viewer-Uploader.

    Currently the only options are Editor or Viewer. Editor is too much access as a default and Viewer is too limited. Please provide Viewer-Uploader as a third option or to replacement Editor role. Viewer-Uploader is a safer option as a default as it allows everything Editor role does except delete. Users are not being mindful when they share content and our support team spends time doing search and rescue. If Viewer-Uploader were the default, safer environment and Box will have better appeal.

  8. Access Stats: Ability to export faster at scale

    Exporting Access Stats report some times take long time to get generated, especially many reports are requested at the same time. We would like the Access Stats export be generated faster at scale.

  11. I want to be able to check the checkbox on the "Group Administrator" setting screen when I click the checkbox.

    In the setting window of "Group Admin Permission",
    the items cannot be check/uncheck although the operator click the check boxes.
    (The item can be checked if the operator clicks over the item names, but not in the check box.)
    It would be nice if the item can be checked as its check box is clicked.

  12. Shared link expiry notification to be sent to shared link creator as well

    As of today, Shared link expiry notification is only sent to the owner of the folder, can we extend this notification to the creator of the shared link as well.

    Reason being owner of the folder might not always be the creator of the shared link, it can be anyone from co-owner, editor etc.

    This will help us limit out the chance of users missing out on the notification.

  13. Reports status

    Easily link to the file directly from Reports status
    Even if you know immediately that the status is completed in Reports status, it takes time to find the corresponding file in the report folder!
    The files are numerous, have similar names, are difficult to find, and are easy to make mistakes.
    So let us be able to jump directly to the file from Reports status.

  14. Shared Links Report

    It would be nice to have options rather than just export as is. Similar to User Activity, the ability to at a minimum choose a start and end date would be extremely helpful. Currently, our report is not working. Having worked with Box support, they believe it is due to the size of the export. If this is the case, being able to limit the report timeframe, will help with the size. Thank you.

  15. User activity report

    In the activity report, exporting Collaboration Approval gives the following output:


    1. Invite external users to the "folder" of your company tenant.
      Only the folders invited to "Processed Items" are displayed.


    2. Invite external users to the "file" of your company tenant
      The folder path is displayed in "Processing item", but the file name and file ID of the invitation file are not displayed.


    This specification confuses the user and is not suitable for following the path to the invite folder.
    Please unify "Folder path", "Folder/file name" and "Folder/file ID" as output results.

  16. Direct link creating and reporting for an entire folder. Custom Direct LInks

    Ability to create for an entire folders contents the Direct Links and a report listing those links so they can be uploaded to the app needing the direct links. Currently you have to touch each and every file you want a direct link too. Phase 2 would be allow custom URL for part of the direct links.

  17. Bulk Add someone as a co-owner to existing folders

    Make a way to bulk add someone to multiple existing folders in Box as a co-owner. This stems from if you want to make someone a co-admin so they can assist with existing folder creation/access for newer employees of your company you would have to add them to a folder individually to achieve this. If you have many folders this would take a long time as a manual process so a bulk add would make it that easier to do.

  19. Run report to demonstrates permanent deletion of files

    I really need the ability to run a report that demonstrates that my files have been permanently deleted.

    Given requirements in the various data privacy laws across the world, our company may be required to delete data or files at any time, and provide proof of deletion. However, once something is deleted from our Box account, it sits in Trash for 30 days before being permanently purged. (And, if I understand correctly, the data may be recoverable for 14 days after that?)

  20. Single Pane of Glass for Multitenant Administration

    We currently have 3 Box tenants that we are having to support and currently doing so with 3 different sets of accounts/credentials. We would like to be able to see all tenants under one Admin Console and be able to make changes from that one console to all of our Box tenants.

    We are also using Okta single sign on all domain joined devices. Users login to their laptop with their primary domain account and are signed in to the primary Box tenant. Users that need to access a different Box tenant are having to user another browser or incognito…
