  1. Count previewing large Video files as "preview" in User Statistics Report

    Count previewing large Video files as "preview" in User Statistics Report.

    Sometimes previewing large Video files is not counted as "preview" in User Statistics Report.

    It should be counted.

  2. Allow Shared folders to be owned by Domain ( vs user)

    Similar to Google's Shared Drives, allowing admins to set ownership of a shared drive at the domain level vs user (human or service) would minimize the need for Service Accounts or changing ownership as users leave the company.

  3. Stop disabling access to content when its owner account is deactivated.

    If content owner's account is disabled, any collaborators lose access to said content. A different workflow needs to be put into place to allow these collaborators access to content previously shared with them.

    Either automatically transfer ownership to a co-owner or when the original owner account is being suspended, add options for preserving access to other collaborators.

  5. Add Box IDs to Managed Users Report

    Currently, Box IDs are not accessible from the Managed Users Report. To obtain the Box IDs, I have to use the CLI.

    Our company deprovisions Box accounts based on the Last Login date in the Managed Users Report and it would be helpful if the Managed Users Report include the Box IDs.

  7. Content manager and folder picker for user activity report

    Ability for group admin/Business admin to use Contents Manager (and folder picker for user activity report).
    Currently, the group admin or admin of Business license cannot choose folder from picker on user activity report because they don't have the permission to view users' contents (or Contents Manager).

  8. Office 365 Image profile should be used as profile picture on Box website when Azure SSO is setup

    Office 365 Image profile should be used as profile picture on Box website when Azure SSO is setup. I noticed all Box accounts created via Azure SSO have a silhouette as the image. Would be great if it can pull the image from Office 365 profile.

  9. Additional columns in User activity report

    User activity report provide events of "Approved Task" and "Rejected task"

    Currently, User activity report provide just following events:
    Assigned a task
    Updated a task assignment
    Created a task

    Therefore, administrator cannot detect events of "Approved Task" and "Rejected task" These information should be provided in the report to know when the task was approved or rejected.

  11. invite sharing - save message

    When a collaboration invite has been accepted, the "<User> has accepted your invite" message should include the original invite message.

    This will remind me why I shared the file with the user and what the user was asked to do with this file.

  12. Prevent users to change their own permission level

    Prevent users to cange their own permission level in order to avoid "downgrading" the permission from Co-Owner to Viewer (for example) just for yourself.

    Or not allowing a user to remove himself/herself from a folder.

  13. Distinguish FTP and FTPS in User Activity Report

    would like a way to distinguish the difference between FTP and FTPS traffic.
    The “details” column in the user activity report only shows the connection to “Box FTP Server”,
    but it doesn’t specify which protocol or port was used.

  17. External collaborator redundant expiration notice

    If a Box folder is created in one Box org. and external collaborators are added, they’re already set to expire depending on the rules.

    If you move the folder to another org., and the new org has the same domain as the added collaborators that were set to expire, they still get the expiration notice, even though they shouldn’t expire because the new org. matches the added collaborators.

  18. Sharing Content to Alternate Email Address

    Currently when sharing content via email address, if the address used is a secondary email on their account, the UX is to show that the email address is for an external user, rather than a user in your box tenant. Additionally, the full name of the user does not resolve, leading users to believe that the address they selected is inaccurate.

    All alternate email addresses should be treated as searchable attributes that bring up the user profile rather than just the primary.

  19. Extend expiration dates to be shown in their user activity reports

    For external collaborations, it shows the date the collaboration is going to end when it's first set in the user activity to report as
    -Action: Collaboration expiration
    -Details: To: YYYY-MM-DD

    However when you extend this period, the "To: YYYY-MM-DD" isn't displayed so you don't know until when it's extended until unless you go the individual folder/file itself and look at the "clock" mark manually.
    In the report
    -Action: Extend collaborator expiration
    -Details: [Blank]

    The customer wants to have a grasp of each expiration dates so they're saying looking at each item manually on Box is impractical.
    They would like the…

  20. API: "email_alias" Is it possible to register other than the same domain?

    API: "email_alias" Is it possible to register other than the same domain?

    At this time, if you disable it until the email address is confirmed with
    the same specifications as when registering from the UI,
    I think that you can prevent misuse.

    Example)
    Suppose a customer wants to give a user two email addresses in different
    domains before the company integrates.

    This specification allows administrators to bulk register using
    the API without user effort.
