  1. Collaborator Expiration - Include Co-Owner(s) in the Email Notification

    Current Behavior:

    --Email Notification - Sent to 'affected users' (defined as Folder Owner and the original Inviter, aka the person who invited in the collaborator who is about to expire)
    --Ability to Extend Expiration Date - Folder Owner & Co-Owners

    REQUEST: Add Co-Owner(s) to the email notification distribution so that they can take the burden off the folder owner (since co-owners already have the ability to extend the expiration date).

  2. Watermark on Download when user has View Upload rights

    We need users who have Viewer Uploader rights to always have a document watermarked on DL. According to the ACL, Viewer Uploaders download without the Watermark.

  5. Device Trust separate desktop and 3rd party apps

    We're trying to limit Box to managed devices. We enable DT on webapp, deploy Box for EMM, but when we try to open/edit a file in iOS Office, DT considers it a 3rd party app and blocks it.

    Decoupling the two would leave the desired state of blocking webapp on unmanaged devices, controlling mobile through EMM, but also allowing editing in apps as desired on that managed device.

  6. Open Shared Link Controls: Default Password Requirements for Open Shared Links

    REQUEST: Admin would like the ability to set a global control whereby all public/open ('people with the link') links must have a password.

    Our current controls on shared links impact all 3 Shared Link permissions causing additional impact on the user experience.

    Instead of “require password” security control, we intend to support “Require OTP” requirement for public links (via SMS, Email, or TOTP). I wanted to share where we are headed. We do not plan on delivering this ask as is, but we do intend to solve the security use case behind it.

    Please comment if you disagree.

  7. Require 2FA for certain content only (not globally)

    Force 2-factor / MFA based on the type of content, folder, user. etc. - natively in Box or support this functionality through IdP

  8. Allow admin to disable external password

    Instead of being able to only "reset" the external passwords, we want to block the ability for users to use/access their external passwords.

  9. Suppress Notifications - Expand Scope to Suppress In-App Entries in the Updates Feed & Access Stats (for DLP & CASB Integrations)

    Services (like DLP and CASB partners such as Netskope and Skyhigh) that use the Content API to scan Box content have the ability to suppress email notifications that would normally be generated for various activity (such as downloads, etc.). This is great as the activity from these services should be transparent and not exposed to the end user.

    However, the Suppress Notifications header currently only applies to suppressing email notifications -- these entries for activity from these API-based services still are exposed in-app to end users on the Updates feed and in other locations such as Access Stats.

    REQUEST: Expand…

  10. Provide a complementary Event in the Events API that a file has been successfully scanned for viruses

    We would like to take an action on a file once it has been successfully scanned for viruses. The files are being uploaded from an external party through a white labeled application.

    We understand we would get an event that a malicious file has been found. We would also like the opposite event that a file has been scanned and has not been found to be malicious via the API.

  14. Allow customization of webapp banner color, by providing admins with the option to choose a particular color for a classification level.

    We want to be able to edit the color of the in-app classification banner. We classify the security level of content by color as a visual indicator.

    This is currently not on the roadmap as we have not heard this request from many other customers. We will consider it in the future if there is increased customer demand.

  16. Option to Remove Expiration of a Collaborator after Auto-Expiration is disabled

    Admin request option when disabling Auto-Expiration feature for collaborators within Enterprise:

    1. Allow option to choose extension date for pre-existing collaborators who's access is going to expire.
    2. Allow option to disable/remove auto expiration for collaborators by Admin or Owner.

    This will affect multiple user across our enterprise where they will have to be re-invited to folders since expiration cannot be removed.

    Thank you for your note! We will consider this request with additional demand.

  17. Open Shared Link Controls: Prevent Open Shared Folder Links without Disabling Company Folder Shared Links

    Right now you can't disable Open folder links without disabling Company folder links. The native Box setting for this is too restrictive (prevents sharing folders internally other than via collaboration).

  18. CAPTCHA localization

    When logging into Box via OAuth, a user may be presented with a CAPTCHA challenge. This CAPTCHA challenge is not localized, i.e., it may be presented in a language that does not match the Box customer's account language.

  19. Enable download of watermarked file via public shared link.

    We want to be able to distribute watermarked files via public shared link. It's confusing for end users, as well, since the Shared Link settings for allow download is not grayed out when the file is "watermarked".

    We will review this request once we see additional use cases and customer demand.

  20. Allow per user exemptions for password expiration

    This would allow admins to remove automatic password expiration on service accounts or account used solely for third party integration services.
