  1. Improvements on output of collaboration report

    There is a time lag in the output of the collaboration report.

    There is a 24-hour time lag since the recent revision.
    I would like to see improvements so that the content of the collaboration report is reflected in real time.

  3. Add a folder in Bulk

    It would be nice to have the ability to create a folder one time, but as a waterfall in hundreds of other folders. Instead of adding the same sub-folder under all 300 main folders individually, there needs to be a way to add the same sub-folder to all main folders in one step.

  4. Ability to customize file and folder report

    File & folder report execution customization has to be there So that we can run the report only for a particular or a list of the user account. Rather than running for a whole domain, Which really makes no sense on having huge reporting dumps.

  5. I would like the ability to customize Box invite emails

    For example when a managed user Shares to an external user (who happens to use the same email domain but is not a part of our organization) I would like the email link that they are sent to prompt them to create a FREE Box account NOT be added to our Enterprise automatically.

    There should be a setting in our Enterprise that allows me to toggle on or off the custom sign in/sign up link that is presented to the recipient of a Share email.

    Not everyone with the same domain is part of the same organization.

  6. Box Reports User Details - Distinguish download to local disk vs. download using Box Drive

    Want a way to tell if the user downloaded it locally to their machine vs. just opening the doc via Box Drive/Office App/Box website. This feature would be extremely helpful to when a user is leaving the company and we want to know if they are “taking company docs”. Having “download” for simply opening and editing a doc is mis-leading. Would be super helpful to differentiate between the two.

  9. Make bulk user upload more robust and improve error notifications

    I attempted to bulk-add ~250 users. This turned into a long run of whack-a-mole and required Box Product Support intervention because:

    a) Rows that did not have errors were not processed
    b) Rows that did have errors sometimes failed silently (sometimes perhaps caused by secondary email addresses or external email addresses)

    My net experience was getting not-particularly-actionable errors like this:

    Because some of the information in the file you uploaded may have contained errors or conflicts, not all users were added to your Box account successfully.

    Of the 221 users in the file you uploaded, 221 users were not added…

  10. Box report progress bar or indicator

    We want to check the progress of a report being output.
    At the moment We can only see if it is in progress but it is not possible to see when the report will be output.

    It can take quite a while for the report to be output, but we don't want to be uncertain about when it will be completed.
    This is because we have to regularly check the output of the report, which is time-consuming.

    It would be nice to be able to see progress as a percentage.

    <出力しているレポートの進捗状況をパーセンテージで確認したい>

    出力中のレポートの進捗状況を確認したいです。
    現時点では、進行中かどうかを確認することはできますが、いつレポートが出力されるかを確認することはできません。

    レポートが出力されるまでにはかなりの時間がかかりますが、
    定期的にレポートの出力状況を確認しなければならず、手間がかかるため
    いつ完了するかわからない状態では困ります。

    進捗状況をパーセンテージで確認できると嬉しいです。

  11. Shield classification - Admin console visibility and user reporting

    1) "Whenever any user tries to apply the classification, Box console is not able to tell the owner which users would be affected due to this."

    2) "As well as while adding external users for collaboration on a classified folder where external users have this limitation, It would be great if the console can let the owner know about it, Otherwise he would think all should work but in actual it's just not enough, He has to whitelist the external domain under classification."

  12. Improve speed of reflection of latest data for reports less than 1 hour

    Reports other than the User detail report will take 24 hours to reflect the latest data. Only user detail report is live with 1 hour data freshness limit. It is very inconvenient that the latest data is not reflected immediately.

  14. Auto-size content search manager as you go down the tree

    When using the content search manger, the further you go down the tree the less of the folder name you see. This view should auto-expand to show the full name of the folder not just the the first couple characters.

  15. We would like to be able to preview files encrypted with Microsoft MIP from Box./フォルダ・ファイルレポートのフォルダ絞りこみ機能でフォルダIDを指定できるようにしてほしい。

    The function to filter by the current folder name wastes time because it does not know which folder is the target folder when there are multiple identical folder names.

    (In Japanese)
    現在のフォルダ名で絞込をかける機能は、同一のフォルダ名が複数存在した場合にどれが対象フォルダなのかが分からず無駄な時間が発生します。

  16. Sort order when User Activity reports filter is selected.

    The content is sorted by content ID, but since it cannot be sorted, visibility is poor, so we want to sort by name, etc.

  17. 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.

  18. Option to revert accidentally moved files/folders

    More often than not users accidentally move files/folders by mistake.

    Reverting is nothing but a complete and avoidable nightmare.

    The current process is horrendous. Running a report on moves only gives you info on WHO moved the folder and where it was ORIGINALLY. After finally searching for and locating the folder, the Admin Console gives you no options to move the folder. You instead have to granting yourself permission to the parent folder, navigating to your personal Box account and make the move manually. I hope I'm not crazy but this process is in no way intuitive or fun in…

  20. I would like a report that includes the URL for folders.

    Currently we copy an ID number from our database and go to Box. We then paste the ID number into Box to locate the file we want to work in. I have recently created a field that will hold that URL and at the click of a button, the database will copy the link, go to browser and paste in the URL - a lot of time savings in our workflow. The issue I am having it is taking a long time to collect all the URLs. I would like an admin report that would allow me to export the…
