  1. Azure groups - not modifiable

    The azure managed groups should not be modifiable from BOX, as this brings inconsistency in what azure says, as well as brings clutter.

    My example:

    If you have group 1 in azure, replicated in box group 1, you should not be able to modify box group 1 in box, it should be blocked.

    This is already the case in tools like Atlassian, where synced groups from AD are non modifiable.

    This brings security breaches, as, in the admin user console, when you search a user, all the access that he has been given by azure groups, do not apear in…

  3. 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.

  7. Allow more capabilities in the Reports module

    It would really be nice if you would allow filtering on more than just a couple reports, and/or the ability for admin to create their own reports.

    For instance the Files and Folders report, I may not care to run a report on all files and folders, should be able to filter based on metadata or on just specific folders.

  8. Allow Excel to open "Export Users" report (csv) without worrying about garbled characters

    Admin Console > Users&Groups > Managed Users > Export Users

    Please change "Export Users" report to the format of the UTF8 csv file with BOM

    The format of the "Export Users" report has been changed to csv.
    Therefore, when you import it into Excel as it is, the characters will be garbled.

    ​The workaround now:
    We change it to csv file with UTF8 BOM in a text editor now before importing it into Excel.

    However, this workaround would required few extra steps before importing it into Excel.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. When a new sandbox is created, automatically inherit the IP whitelist setting from the primary EID

    When we created our primary EID, we needed to provide IP address ranges so we could restrict access to our enterprise instance of Box to only users from within our corporate network. Each time we create a new Sandbox we need to ask Box support to apply the same IP range. We would like the Sandbox EIDs to automatically inherit the whitelist settings from the primary EID. This will reduce any risks of a malicious individual potentially creating a new Sandbox and not configuring the restrictions so that it is only accessible from within our corporate network.

  13. UAR

    When running a UAR from Admin Console, I think it would be very helpful if either on row 1, or perhaps in its own sheet of the resulting excel report, to include a summary or quick SQL-type list of what parameters were used to run that report. This would cut down back and forth in some cases on troubleshooting whether the person who generated the report did or did not include the correct date range, actions, User/Content IDs, etc, to resolve these issues quicker.

  14. Report the history of Apps enabled / disabled in Individual Application Controls

    We would like to be able to get a history of apps that we have enabled / disabled in the Individual Application Controls of Admin Console.
    This is under Box Apps & Integrations within the Apps settings menu.
    Currently it cannot be exported from reports etc.

  15. 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?)

  16. 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…

  17. Full text folder paths for new shared links report

    Under the new shared links report, the spelled out folder "Path" column is no longer available. Please add this back to make it easier for admins to find content.

  19. Prevent password reset for managed users

    For organizations that require SSO login, we would like to restrict the ability for our users to reset their Box passwords - it causes confusion for our users.

  20. Pre-defined reporting

    Request for Box to create pre-defined reports. Currently, we have to input criteria everytime, reallocate the parameters and reset it up again. Goal is to have admin be able to pre-populate a report thats saved and say run it every Sunday night. Any thought to utilizing Relay to run Manual Start, predefined reports?
