  1. Allow for multiple primary admins

    There are several functions within the Admin Console that are only accessible to the primary admin. Setting up SSO for example requires the primary admin, and co-admins are unable to integrate with SSO. In many environments there will not be a single administrator with privileged access across multiple systems, which means the primary admin role will need to be assigned and re-assigned multiple times to perform necessary tasks.

    To promote a secure environment where tasks may need to be performed by multiple administrators, I would request either 1) admin console allow for multiple users in the primary admin role, or…

  2. Run User Activity Report with API

    We would like to be able to run User Activity Report through the API.
    Users, groups and affected folders/files can be selected as a filter to export/run this report against. But today, keyboard typings and mouse clicks are required to select each filtering, which would be unrealistic to specify tens or hundreds of users, groups, folders and/or files.
    Thus, We would need API to utilize/filter User Activity Report at scale.

  3. Split and transfer data to several users when the owner is deleted (including folder assignment)

    Hi,
    it would be nice if I could split the data of a user to be deleted among more than 1 other user.

    If, for example, a department head leaves the company and another head takes over the disciplinary part on an interim basis, but the technical issues are still mapped in the department, it makes sense to be able to separate the structures. We are currently transferring the disciplinary page manually.

    Best regards,

  4. ADD LOCKED FOLDERS LIST IN THE USER ACTIVITY REPORT

    Currently we have no way to look up which holders are locked via FolderLockAPI.
    To avoid any trouble not knowing who has been locked,
    we'd like to request to add the locked folders list in the user activity report.

    FolderLockAPIを利用してLockされているフォルダの一覧をレポートに出したい:
    FolderLockAPIを利用してLockしたフォルダーについて、
    どのフォルダーがロックされているかがわからなくなるなどのトラブルを防ぐために、
    現時点でロックされているフォルダの一覧をアクティビティレポートに出力したい。

  5. Add external collaborator's expiration date on collaboration report

    In the collaboration report, there are invited date and accepted date, but there is no expiration date. Would it be possible to add expiration date in the collaboration report?
    Because it is too tough to confirm the expiration date one by one on the collaboration list page or using API, I demand the way to confirm enitre expiration date easily.

  6. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  7. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  8. Opening the "Reports" menu, "Create Report" appears by default.

    When we open a "report" from the admin console, we will now see "Report Status" board.
    Before the "Report Status" board was created, "Report Create" was the first thing that was displayed.

    The main purpose of opening the "report" page is to create a report.
    The Report Status is a page to check when something happens, so it is not the main recognition.

    At the moment we have to click on the "Create Report" tab whenever we want to create a report.
    Next we will want to click on the Export button for any report.

    We hope to eliminate this…

  9. Set default file view and sort options by folder (and all sub folders for that folder)

    Ideally, let an owner or editor of a folder set the default view (list or grid) and sort order of the files.

    The system default appears to be by date the file was updated which is rarely (if ever) what our users want.

    Re: view options: For photos especially, the list view is rarely the preferred view.

    Additionally, with the grid view, allow the size of the image also be set as a default.

    This may not be an admin console enhancement. I think it needs to be a under More when you’re looking a a folder.

    Need to be able to run reports for user activity for user account that have been deleted. Once a user is deleted I can't run any historical user activity in case there is any request for that information.

  11. Customize Collaborator Permission Levels

    Any chance that we can have some flexibility in the "Collaborator Permission Levels." Can we develop a tool to edit these levels, like check which function the user can have. Having set levels with no flexibility is difficult because every user needs different access.

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Custom Terms of Service - Prompting External users to accept terms after change to terms

    It has been noted that if the text of theCustom Terms of Service is changed for internal users, internal users are prompted to re-accept the new terms. However for external users, if the text of the terms is changed, the external users is not prompted to accept the new terms until they are invited to a new folder. Can the external users be prompted to accept the new terms once the text is changed?

  17. As an admin I like to be able to search on a folder ID in the admin console

    I just had a user with only a path to a folder with an id (https://company.app.box.com/folder/123456789) for example.

    I didn't have access to it, so I was wondering which folder it actually was.

    I couldn't find a way to search for the ID in the admin console, so I could find the real name and owner.

    My suggestion is to have a search field in the admin console where you can put the Folder ID and it returns the full path and owner.

  19. Input file/folder ID instead of folder name in Files and Folders report

    Quite often folders with same name appear when the folder name is entered for filtering the folder to create the report, resulting in the report being incorrect although after long time waiting for the report to be ready.
    By allowing to filter by file/folder ID instead of folder name, such mistake can be avoided and the the filtering can be made more accurate.
