  1. 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?)

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. Reporting function for file size and type by folder

    A reporting function for file size and type by folder, including a breakdown of this information for enclosed folders, per-folder.

    For example, we are interested in the space taken (per-folder and by file type) for a body of data in Box, but the aggregate of these folders has roughly 1.1 million files and takes 3.5TB of space. We would like to see a breakdown such that we could see, for example, that of the 3.5TB, XX% is PDF, pictures, music, movies, MS documents, etc., as well as the size of each enclosed folder.

    I started running a "Files and Folders"…

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Receive Email Notification if Report Times Out

    Currently, reports initiated in Box can timeout or 10 million records or exceeds 12 hours to generate. The user does not receive any notification should this happen to know that report will not be received.

    Enhancement request would be for the user to receive email notification that report timed out.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
