  1. Allow for conditional rules-based retention policy.

    Allow for conditional rules-based retention policy.
    Example: For a dealer we need to see what the newest document is based on a metadata field. The field is corporate copy date.
    If that is greater than 7 years, then delete all documents with that dealer id.
    You need to get a list of all dealer id’s and find the newest corporate copy date. If any dealer id's are greater than 7 years, delete all for that dealer. In a nutshell, we need to hold 7 years of data after there has been an interaction with a dealer.

  3. Allow for alerts or other actions on file downloads with sensitive content.

    Under Governance and content security, allow policies to be created for file download that would alert or quarantine files on Download with sensitive information such as social security numbers, credit card numbers, bank account/routing numbers, PII, CUI, Proprietary, Confidential, Classified, or Secret. You can create policies for these files that trigger on upload which seems backwards. I want sensitive content to be uploaded into Box rather than other locations. I don't want it to be removed from Box.

  4. Ability to conduct e-discovery investigations without being noticed by the User

    When investigating a lawsuit or security incident, we sometime want to do so without letting the target users know that he/she is under investigation.

    In such case, Box admin login to the target account 'as user' from admin console. But under current specification, the target user can know this admin's activities in the 'Access Stats' and Activities in Box UI.

    So I want Box to enhance the function that admin or co-admin can login as user and investigate without letting the target users know that he/she is under investigation.

  5. Allowing policy creation for longer than 50 years.

    We've realized that retention policies have an upper limit of 50 years. If we want to apply a 90 year retention policy to documents based on their creation date we can not do that at the moment.

    Though workarounds can be implemented such as applying indefinite policies or creating a policy tight to a date field set up into the future, those require extra effort at implementation level or changes at a future moment.

    Could the upper limit be removed or increased please?

  6. Review Custom Terms of Service after accepting them

    As a user that was invited to a folder but had to agree to a Custom Terms of Service before being allowed in, I would like to be able to access those Custom Terms of Service for reference after accepting them.
    I know there's an option to download them at the time of accepting, but if I lose that copy...
    Also, this would just be more convenient.

  7. Export all data belonging to a Custodian on Legal Hold

    There is currently no way through Box to export all of a user's data for offline preservation and legal review. This workflow is necessary for the EDRM model, as the files may still be altered while under Legal Hold.

  8. Search for Users Currently on Legal Hold

    Currently we are dealing with a matter that has spiraled into a huge undertaking because of the way Legal Holds are implemented. Our client has enabled over 25 Legal Hold policies, each one has an average of 50 users. We have a list of over 20 custodians that we need to know which Legal Hold they are currently on, if any.

    There are two ways to implement this:
    1 - Allow Admins to see whether the custodian (or any of their data) is currently on a Legal Hold policy, which Legal Hold Policy it is currently on, and why it…

  9. Enable ability to permanently delete a Box Governance policy

    Enable ability to permanently delete a Box Governance policy.

    I created some test policies and want to clean up my Box Governance user interface, but I can't do so because it's impossible to permanently delete a Box Governance policy.

    Also, I have policies that require a specific nomenclature, but I can't use that same nomenclature because a previous policy shares the same nomenclature, and I can't permanently delete the previous policy.

  10. UI display on box links to indicate utility of Box for ECI or CUI

    I just noticed the ECI/CUI restrictions on shared Box folders. The fact that I was caught off guard about these restrictions, even though it is very clearly written at the time of requesting a Global Share folder, means I suspect many others LM employees are as well. I am concerned about the potential for misuse, especially the way Box was sold as DX for LM, etc. It seems like ANY shared Box link should have a large, bold banner that says NO ECI or CUI permitted.

    Parenthetically, these restrictions make Box useless for all of my programs and projects.

  11. Create custom alerts if user/subset of users performs "X" amount of Downloads/Copies in "Y" amount of time

    We would like the ability to Create custom alerts to send email notifications if any user, or a specific subset of users, performs "X" amount of Downloads/Copies/Shares/Uploads/etc in "Y" amount of time (where we can select what "X" and "Y" are). We know that there is a way to setup a "Content Security - Download" policy that will send email notifications if download activity is "Low, Medium or High" based on your preset definitions of what that means (for instance "High = 12 per hour" in the preset rule), but that doesn't necessarily correspond to what we would want to…

  12. Collaboration Whitelisting UI Enhancement (enable labels and filter/search)

    When we have dozens of domains in the whiltelist for external collaboration, it is hard to manage.

    We think that it needs some UI enhancements such as
    1) enabling to add a label to each domain e.g. company name, descriptions, etc.
    2) filter or search for the registered domains.

  13. Launch workflow at end of retention policy

    There should be an option to launch a workflow process when a retention policy expires. This would allow for use cases such as moving the file to an archive, destruction approval, etc.

  14. The ability to exclude Box Drive and Box Sync synchronization processes and file opened downloads in the download policy of Box Governance o

    The ability to exclude Box Drive and Box Sync synchronization processes and file opened downloads in the download policy of Box Governance options

    The download policy of the Box Governace option also detects the synchronization process in Box Sync and Box Drive, as well as the downloading of files when they are opened.
    Therefore, it is not possible to detect only those downloads that are intended by the user.
    By adding the Box Sync and Box Drive synchronization process and a setting to exclude downloads when a file is opened, you can detect and monitor large numbers of user-initiated downloads.

  15. We would like to be able to see and restore the contents of folders from a previous point in time./過去の時点のフォルダーの内容の参照および復元を可能として欲しい。

    We would like to be able to see and restore the contents of folders from a previous point in time.
    It would be easier to manage folders if there was a function to restore files and folders from "previous versions" in the standard Windows functions.

    (InJapanese)
    過去の時点のフォルダーの内容の参照および復元を可能として欲しい。
    Windowsの標準機能で言うと、「以前のバージョン」からファイルやフォルダを復元するような機能があると、フォルダ管理をしやすくなる。

  17. Allow users to easily set retention on an individual file or folder

    End users need to have the ability to easily apply retention policies to individual documents. They should be able to click an apply policy button, choose the policy and click OK
    Policies should be able to be configured so that users only see policies that apply to them or they have access to.

  18. restrict by file type at folder level

    Would like the ability to restrict File Types at the folder level, (with Waterfall rule would be ok, but ability to break waterfall would be a bonus).
    Currently we use Quarantine Policies to restrict .msg files in Box, but does not allow us to make exceptions by folder. (eg. to allow certain departments this ability, but block from others).

  19. Retention policy should be able to remove folders in addition to files.

    Currently the governance retention policy only delete files. We are using the integration with Oracle NetSuite and as such we have a folder that then gets a folder setup for each Case as we are sending and/or receiving data from customers via the Case we have with them. The policy is set to get data for 30 days. The files are getting removed, however, the folders still exist. This makes it challenging when you look from the Box web interface. It would be nice to have the ability to set folders to remove if they are empty.

  20. How to check the number of stored events

    We want to get the number of events from the Box via the API.
    There is a limit of 500 events per call.
    We need to know what percentage of all events we can get with the 100,000 call limit per month.
    We believe that getting the events is essential for automation, integration with other solutions, and advanced analytics.
    We would like to see more functionality in the event API and administrator console.

    (In Japanese)
    BoxからAPI経由でイベント数を取得したいです。
    1コールで500イベントの制限があります。
    月あたり100000コール制限で全イベントの何%を取得できるのかを知る必要があります。
    イベントを得ることは自動化や他のソリューションとの連携、高度な分析などに必要不可欠と考えています。
    イベントAPIや管理者コンソールの機能を充実させてほしい。
