  1. Add an event for file being released from legal hold.

    We already have an event for removing the legal hold assignment, but that doesn’t tell us if each of the files under that hold is released from the hold or not.

  3. Add another option for deleting trash to "Only allow Policies to delete trash"

    As of now if you want to allow Retention Policies to delete trash, you have to have the trash set to delete after a set timeframe of 90, 60, 30, 10, 7 or 1 days. There should to be another option to Never auto delete EXCEPT from Retention Policies. This would safeguard end users from losing data that has been mistakenly added to the trash while giving us the option to set up retention policies to be GDPR compliant or remove sensitive data .

  5. UI for Legal Holds

    A piece of UI feedback on legal holds: the buttons “release” and “report” are quite close to each other, but do drastically different things. While there is a secondary confirmation screen, it still might be useful to create more physical separation between the two to prevent mistakes.

  7. Contents Security should report the cause of policy violation

    When [Contents Security] catches a policy violation, Box tells the name of policy only.   So Box users need to find the violation data though the file.   If Box can explain a detail point of violation, it will help users to understand and find the cause of violation quickly and easily.

  10. Reset Governance settings

    JFE Steel like to reset Governance setting when Box turned on Governance setting again. JFE Steel set up upload policy when they had POC. Then they did not purchase Governance. When they purchased the Governance later, the setting the customer configured before became effective again. This confused customer. So, Governance setting should be reset when Box turned on the feature.

  11. Custom Terms of Service - Archive of Previous ToS Text

    Currently, when changes are made to the text in an existing custom ToS, Box does not save the original text that was signed off by previous users. Only the most up to date version of the text will be available in Box. I would like to request that, for compliance reasons, there's an archive of previous ToS available so it is clear which specific language each user has signed off on.

  12. Indefinite retention for top level, Finite retention for sub-folders

    Ability to have an Indefinite retention policy as a top level folder and Finite retention policies on sub-folders. Sub folders should by default inherit from the parent, but if listed in another policy then the sub folder should be able to override the default

    a. This would prevent having to have separate folder trees for Indefinite and Finite policies

    b. The parent could be ‘Work in Progress’ and then just move to a sub folder…keeps the documents more logically organized by department

  14. Restrict Classification edits to Governance menu

    A admin can access the Classification template in the Metadata page and delete values of classification. That makes errors. Classification should be only accessible via the Governance menu and not via the Metadata menu.

  18. Support EU-specific patterns for upload policies

    We would like to see options in upload policies for "If a document contains:" that are not just US-centric, ex: European Identification #‘s

  19. Use Box as governance layer for content outside Box

    Ability for Box to function as federated content viewer (governance) - as some content will remain outside Box. Use Box as governance layer but not storage element.
