  1. Add the ITEM ID to the User Activity report (when activity is against a file or folder) in order to join to Files and Folder report on ID

    Add the item id to the User Activity report (when activity is against a file or folder). This would allow the User Activity events to be joined to the Files and Folders report data in order to report on activity against files and folders. An example report would be a list of all activity (Downloads, Previews, etc...) for a specific Box account. Currently the User Activity report only shows the activity that a specific user has done, but not what activities have been done against the content owned by a specific user. This would allow for a wide range of…

  2. Disallow group admin from elevating group permission from admin console above their collaboration access

    Currently if a group admin is individually invited to a folder as a viewer, the group admin can add the folder to a group as editors.

    We have removed the ability for group admins to elevate access levels to folders. This has been shipped and is available in production.

  3. Check for particular trusted root certificate with Device Trust

    We would like to configure Device Trust to check for the presence of a valid client certificate signed against a particular trusted root certificate.

  4. Send notifications to multiple emails

    We have a separate instance for managed external users. Because they have to create a dummy email for these externals, the email is not one that is able to receive notifications. They would like the ability to tack on working emails (without the unique email constraint) so that these users can still receive email notifications.

  5. Enhance description of "Shared Contacts" setting for User Permissions

    Area of product: Admin Console > choose admin/co-admin user > Edit user details > Edit User Access Permissions > Shared Contacts > description bubble

    Currently this describes "Allow this user to see all managed users. If enabled, this user will be able to access other managed users in their contacts when inviting collaborators. External users will not show up in their contacts unless they are already collaborating with each other."

    However, if this is unchecked it also prohibits Admins/Co-Admins from searching for managed users in Reporting and other areas of the Admin Console. Which is not mentioned or hinted at…

    We released an improvement to the Groups UI to allow the full group and folder names to be displayed. Long group and folder names will now wrap to subsequent lines so you will not have to hover over each group or folder name to view the full name.

  8. Change messaging when the target for a data move is invalid

    When data is attempted to be moved to an account that is inactive, the error says "something went wrong. User requests that the error say more about why the transfer cannot occur.

  9. When a user downloads a folder, the admin would like the individual files shown as downloaded in the access stats reports

    Currently if you download a folder, the report will only show the user downloading a folder, not the individual files iwthin the folder. The client would like to know exactly what was downloaded as the content of a folder can change in it lifetime

  11. Allow group admins to search for all managed users

    Currently, group admins can add any managed user into their group, but searching for users will not auto-populate unless the user is already in a group that they manage.

  12. Group Admin - Customizable Permissions

    Currently the Group Admin role is an all or nothing option, which, for some, provides far too many permissions (instant log in, etc.).Just like Box has customizable co-admin roles, Group Admin permissions should be split out in the same way.

  13. External Collaborator Reporting

    Have the ability to export the list of external collaborators with the items they are collaborating on (which the external users tab already shows).

    This information already exists in the Collaboration report. This report lists collaborations (managed and external users) on folders owned by that enterprise. Collaboration type is also called out so you can tell if the user is managed, external or if they have access via a group.

  14. Export Users - Use standard storage metric in managed user export report

    The "Storage Use" column in the Admin Console uses various metrics (B, KB, MB, GB, etc.), which prevents them from sorting to see which users have the most storage, least storage, etc.

  15. Job Manager - Show status of which report exports are 'in progress'/'generating'

    Many times when admins export a report from the Admin Console, the report doesn't instantly post to the Box Reports folder, so the admin is stuck in a limbo of continually checking the Box Reports folder to see if the file has been uploaded yet.Request: provide a 'Job Manager' status page that shows all reports that are currently being generated along with the option to subscribe to an email alert once the report has actually been generated.

  16. Export Users - Add 'Email Aliases' Column (Allow Admins to Export/Report on Email Aliases)

    If an admin wants to view users' email aliases (non-primary email addresses in Box), they must look at each user individually since there is no current export or reporting functionality that includes email aliases. 'Export Users' refers to the button located in Admin Console -> Users & Groups -> Managed Users.

    Reporting has accelerated with the launch of Newsroom. Contact Support with any issues.

  18. Truncated columns

    Columns are truncated which makes difficult to select the events to reports again.

  19. See full group name or folder name within admin console when assigning groups and folders to new user

    Want to see full group or folder name when assigning them to new users. Sometimes shows part of it when hovering over it but based on naming conventions they need to see the full thing.

    This is addressed in the new Groups and Managed Users UI.
