  1. Ability to Edit folder contents but Folder cannot be deleted

    Hello,

    I am submitting a feature request for the ability to have Folder contents edited and changed (Add remove files), but users who have Editor permissions cannot delete the folder itself. We had an issue where a folder was deleted that has data sent to it via a Python script. The user meant to delete some contents from the folder, but accidentally deleted the folder itself. The folder name was "Doc Upload Test".

    I was able to get the folder restored through the Box Support team. If there was a feature for each folder where a checkbox was available that…

  2. Invited folders cannot be consolidated by collaborator

    I am invited to view individual accounts by an outside company. I would like to be able to move these folders into a “company A” folder so that they are not at the top level of my box drive.

  4. Folder path under Trash

    Under Trash, please add "folder path". If there was a bulk delete of many files in a folder, we want to confirm the file belongs in the folder path, before we restore the files.

  7. Export owned and collaborated files & folder tree by user

    When exporting user’s Files & Folder tree, it only shows the users owned folders. It should show all the content the user has in their account, including collaborated folders. even after selecting a specific user.

  9. Subject Access Request reporting

    UK users need to be able to provide Subject Access Reporting (by law). Everyone is entitled to a copy of their data held in the system.

    Box needs to be able to report on that. Search (content and/or metadata) will provide the results, but we need a list of this content in a report as well as the ability to download all this content in a zip file.

    See specific GDPR requirements here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organizations/guide-to-data-protection/principle-6-rights/subject-access-request/

  10. Show full path in results when searching for content across the enterprise

    For search results of files/folders are returned for longer folder paths (e.g. think 10 sub folders deep), the folder path in the UI is truncated to only show 3-4 folders deep so it does not display higher level folder or even the root folder of the structure. This makes content discovery within the folder owner's count much more difficult. Click on the results only bring your to the item in Content Manager and still doesn't give you the path information. A solution would be to have the option to click a more info option which displays the full folder path…

  13. Hide admin from access stats when viewing/downloading content on legal hold

    We do not want users on legal hold to know that their content is being previewed or downloaded. We want to be able to "hide" their actions from the access status.

  14. Allow export of content from Content Manager

    When reviewing content from users who are on legal hold, allow admins to export data directly from Content Manager instead of requiring the admin to navigate to the file in Box.

  15. Easily identify folders owned by an individual user via Content Manager

    I have a need to determine what folders are owned by a certain person and wanted to know the easiest way to get that information. When viewing under Content Manager I see all the folders the person has access to but cannot filter it for the one she owns. I also tried running the Folders and Files report but am getting an error.

    For example, I need to look up all folders owned by one user in order to change them after a name change.

  16. Admin Trash -- Include Items in 'Trash' when using Search in Content Manager from the Admin Console

    Search in the Content Manager does not currently include items in Trash. This is a security/eDiscovery challenge currently.

  17. Shared Link Lookup Tool

    Problem: Admins often need to do investigation of files stored in Box and all they have to go off of is the file/folder's shared link. Since admins can't search by shared link in the current Content Manager UI, a Shared Link Lookup tool would provide similar information.

    Key Features:
    -Provide ability to enter a shared link (standard or vanity URL)
    -Information returned after searching:
    -File/folder name
    -File/folder owner
    -File/folder location (Owner -> Folder hierarchy)
    -Status (whether the file/folder has been deleted or not)
    -Admin-level 'delete' (ability for the admin to delete the file on the spot)

  18. Unable to see file/folder/metadata details when viewing deleted files

    Scenario: A user deletes a folder and the admin, from content manager, is looking to quickly see which files were in that folder. Conversely, if a file is deleted, it's not easy to see which folder it was in.

  19. Ability to see owned vs. collaborated content

    From content manager, we would like the ability to filter the content by only showing content the user is 1) an owner of and/or 2) is a co-owner of, and/or 3) is collaborated on.

    When a user leaves the organization, we will disable the account for a few months. Before it is deleted, we would like to have the possibility to easily see the impact for other users if/when the content is deleted. If needed, we would then assign new owners for content collaborated on before that content is deleted.

    We don’t currently have plans to make these improvements to content manager. However, we are looking into ways to more easily show content usage and giving the ability to delete content as needed.
