  1. Ability to have users enter their name and email address when downloading from a shared link without being logged in.

    In the case of a public shared link, there is no way to verify the user who manipulated the file if it was manipulated while the user was not logged in.
    However, we would like to verify by whom the shared file was downloaded.
    Since the file sharing partners are unspecified, we would like to share files via a shared link rather than through collaboration.
    Request the ability to track the operating user by having them enter their name and email address when downloading from a shared link in an un-logged-in state.

    <共有リンクから未ログイン状態でダウンロードする際に名前やメールアドレスを入力できる機能>
    「リンクを知っている全員」に設定した共有リンクの場合、未ログイン状態で操作された場合はファイルを操作したユーザーを確認する手段がありません。
    しかし、共有したファイルが誰によってダウンロードされているか確認したいと考えています。
    ファイルの共有相手は不特定多数のため、コラボレーションではなく共有リンクでファイルを共有したいと考えています。
    共有リンクから未ログイン状態でダウンロードする際には名前やメールアドレスを入力させて、操作ユーザーを追える機能をリクエストします。

  3. 2 Factor Authentication

    When a user is setting up 2 factor authentication, the message says it will replace your login settings. It needs to say explicity "Box settings", as it now leads you to believe it is replacing your authenticator app settings that is used for the employee's company login.

  4. Get Rid of Waterfall Permissions - Allow Subfolder Security To Be Set Differently

    It is absolutely ridiculous that a company as large as Box is using waterfall permissions for all enterprise accounts.

    In a business environment, it is absolutely necessary to be able to set specific permissions on subfolders within a large data folder that all users have access to. This is a simple feature included with every other cloud file provider we've ever used.

    Needs to be included ASAP.

  5. Require 12 characters for External Collaborator Passwords

    Currently, if 'Require Strong Passwords for External Collaborators' is selected, the external collaborator will be required to use at least 8 characters (along with additional criteria). The ask is to require 12 characters, rather than 8, for increased security.

  6. Auto-Disable inactive users

    Managed Users:
    Enable the following feature:

    Box auto-disables managed user accounts that meet a set threshold of account inactivity. There should be a setting to specify a threshold for inactive users i.e. number of days since the last login.

  7. More possibilities regarding session timeout

    We find that the session timeout possibilities are somewhat limited. The jump from 2 days to 14 days is quite big - 2 days would log everyone out during each weekend, and would result in support tickets and 14 days are quite many. Something like 4 days inbetween would be great.

  8. Custom User Role

    Currently under user role and access permission, we can only give a user "Member" or "Co-Admin" role.
    We would like the additional more granular role or provide us the ability to create custom role with checkboxes.
    Our goal is to have a new Role to allow a user to be able to maintain the Shields List for Email Address (Allow List for Email Addresses).

  9. Group-based SSO configuration

    Current Status and Issues:
    SSO mode can only be set for all users.
    If SSO is mandatory, when IdP fails, all users cannot log in to Box.

    Desired Improvement:
    I would like to specify a Box group to enable/disable/require SSO. If only the administrator can set "SSO Enabled", he/she can log in even in case of IdP failure, and by changing the setting of general users from "SSO Required" to "SSO Enabled", the business can continue.
    Furthermore, if possible, we would like to set it up so that different groups can SSO in different IdPs.

    Reason for need:
    The IdP…

  10. Password reset is so laborioius

    You need to vastly improve the password reset experience. It takes me several minutes to set up a new password and I have to do this on multiple computers. For one thing, DON'T expire passwords. It doesn't improve security at all. Second, if you have to expire them, send me a warning a few days ahead of time. Don't just shut down my Box drive app. Third, I should be able to log in with my old PW and just reset there, maybe with a 2nd factor authentication, like a text message. Finally, the PW rules are too narrow. If…

  11. Increase Password Reset Duration

  12. Ability to exclude service account from password reset requirements

    The ability to exclude Box Service Accounts email from required password reset by our enterprise. Our service account integrates with Salesforce and it breaks our connection when Box triggers a password reset.

  13. Using Box with FTPS and MFA

    We would like to use automated scripts to upload files to Box using FTPS. We would also like MFA enabled for our internal users. Box has advised that:
    1. They do not provide service accounts to facilitate this
    2. They do not allow per-user control over MFA settings
    3. The process to login when MFA is enabled is manual and cannot be automated.
    4. FTPS only works with SMS MFA

    We would like the following product enhancements:
    1. Automated MFA Support: The ability for automated scripts to interact with MFA, perhaps through a secure token-based system or service account that…

  14. Allow users to see a list or report of links that -they have created-

    Allow users to see a list or report of links that -they have created- so that they can be requested to review any external links and clean them up to keep organizational data secure.

  15. Add permission to grant user access to see (list) of folders and files but not preview any content within the files.

    This would provide awareness to the user that a file exists and they can then request preview (or other) access from the owner/co-owner.

  17. Closed folder structure

    "My Sign Requests", "My Canvases" and "My Signed Documents" folders are created as private folders technically by Box, without any admin intervention. When using a closed folder structure, these folders can still be used by users to build their own folder structures, as they become the owner of this folder. This counteracts the idea of a closed folder system and represents a massive security gap. Users can then build folder structures and content in our box instance without any control by the admin and share them with external users.

    These technically generated folders must therefore be restricted accordingly, or admins…

  18. External user verification via TOTP for shared links

    Please consider adding a TOTP verification option for shared links. You could allow a link to be shared to an email address but require TOTP verification via that same email address. This would help verify that only someone with access to the email address we shared with can access the content without forcing them to signup for a free Box account.

    Thank you

  19. Hide older versions from certain collaborator levels

    When you share a file/folder with another user, no matter what permission level you give them they are able to see all older versions. It would be great if we could hide those from lower level collaborators like you can do with comments.

  20. Create Annotations/Markups with Viewer Role with Watermarking Enabled

    When Watermarking is NOT enabled on files/folders, users with the Viewer permission are able to markup/annotate without downloading the file. As soon as Watermarking is turned on, that functionality goes away. The only option is to increase their permissions, which gives them rights to upload, which I do not want. Why does this functionality go away when Watermarking is enabled? Is this able to be fixed?
