  1. Display the error message immediately when admin console reports(Folders & Files) failed to export.

    When admin console reports failed to export due to limitations(10 million item limitation etc), users can't immediately notice the failure.
    We'd like to display the error message immediately, when it failed.

  2. Share Links report w/ direct link column

    Current reporting allows admins to export a snapshot of all 'shared links' but it does not show the 'direct links' to those files. Customers who use direct links are not able to pull a report showing the file name, direct link and other information about the file. Reporting on direct links can also keep the admin aware of direct linked files that are public facing that might be a security issue.

  3. Email notification for new reports available in My Box Reports Folder

    Please add a new feature to enable email notifications when Box reports I request becomes available in My Box Reports folder. I find that some reports may take several hours to run, specifically the Files and Folders report, and I need to constantly check refreshing the page to see if the report has been uploaded.

  4. Box Admin Essentials Getting Started

    The Login and Security Settings section of ‘Box Admin Essentials Getting Started’ doesn't specify that the settings explained are only for Enterprise accounts. Please add a disclaimer that states this. As a Business account holder, I was confused when I couldn't select the settings shown in the course, which led me to submitting a support ticket to see if something was wrong with my account.

  5. Security settings for Business accounts

    Since Enterprise and Business accounts have different security settings, replace the Enterprise Settings with Business Settings tailored to Business Accounts. It doesn't make sense for Business accounts to view security settings they can't use and causes confusion when those options aren't selectable.

  6. Add an Undo option within Reports.

    When an admin searches for files or folders that were put in Trash or Moved by a specific user, there is a need for an UNDO option. When erroneous Trash or Move occurs in a large number of files, there is no ability to remedy the error. Please add the ability to undo a users mistake or nefarious action.

  8. "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" when running a report on a specific folder

    When running a report on a "Selected Folder" would be helpful to be able to "Select All" or "Select All Folders/Subfolders" versus having to select each and every file/folder.

  9. Display folder path when Admin select folders to run User Activity reports.

    There are many same folder names. When Admin like to select specific a folder to run the report, he or she can not select right folder due to having the same folder name. If there is folder path, Admin is able to select right folder to run the report.

  11. Bookmark: Add, Delete and or Edit in bulk.

    Bookmarks: Add, Delete and or Edit in bulk.

    Every folder(thousands) of ours has a bookmark to a google doc we all read. We recently changed the url (location) of that bookmark. We are unable to mass add, delete or edit that bookmark to all files in bulk. Now every file has no access to the new bookmark and has an old one that doesn't work.

  12. Ability to disable the Acrobat Web option

    As we must open many PDF files within Box throughout the day, the addition of Adobe Acrobat web and the requirement to "Open With..." and then select either the web or traditional option each time, significantly stunts workflow for our team. The ability to simply right click and open, defaulting to a preferred program (perhaps a "Don't ask me again" option?) would be very much preferred.

  14. Company Shared Link Controls: 'Auto-Expiration' to Only Impact Company Links ('People in your company' links)

    Our customers would like to set default expiration for 'People in your company' links but not for 'Invited user only' links.

    Recently, we have been able to set default expiration for Open links.
    This change have been improved usability, our customers are pleased about it.

    But it is still impossible to set a default expiration only for 'People in your company'links (without setting for 'Invited user only' links).
    Some of our customers need to limit the sharing of information internally as well and hope this setting.
    Example.
    ・pharmaceutical industry
    ・manufacturing industry
    ・Companies with group companies

    Now, they have to set…

  15. Ability to search applications under the custom apps tab

    Looking forward or a capability to search for applications within the custom apps tab.
    We have more than 100 Applications whitelisted given the size of our organization and that keeps growing. In this case, whenever there is an action needed to be done on an application say for example disable an application. We need to search through the long list. This is very inconvenient right now.

  16. New App Management UI needs improvements

    The New App management UI was released the week of Feb 3 2020. We would like to see a few enhancements:
    1) Provide a way copy or export the whitelist of client IDs for custom applications. This is found under Admin Console - App - Custom Apps - Settings - Disable unpublished apps by default
    2) List the App ID or App Name along with the Client IDs that are whitelisted for custom applications. This is found under Admin Console - App - Custom Apps - Settings - Disable unpublished apps by default
    3) Provide better explanation for each section…

  17. Read only access to Admin Console

    To allow the worker's council to read the settings the admins make in Box, we need a read-only admin role.

    This would allow the worker's council to control what the admin are doing, without giving them the ability to change those settings. We don't want to give non-admins admin privileges.

    This helps us being a) compliant with the WC and b) be transparent to our colleagues.

  18. Ability to create an index of a folder structure

    1) A way to create an index of a folder structure to make it easier for outside collaborators to get an idea of whats down the folder tree. We’re looking for some sort of index (like a table of contents) in an orderly fashion for a particular set of folders. I ran a files and folders report but as just an excel sheet it was relatively useless as a table of contents

    2) A way to schedule a report to run daily or weekly

  20. Add audit tracking for Folder Settings 'Restrict collaboration to within (company)'

    The information in Folder Settings, specifically the 'Restrict collaboration to within (company)' setting information would be extremely helpful if it was tracked/audited.

    For example, if a folder was supposed to be an ‘Internal’–only Folder, however that setting was Unchecked, people could in theory Invite external users to folders within it which would pose a security risk.

    Thus seeing who modified this setting would be very helpful.
