  2. Ability to specify the destination folder for periodic output of Box reports

    We would like to be able to output Box reports periodically by specifying a folder.
    Currently, it is possible to output reports on a regular basis, but when providing them to users, it is necessary to manually move the output results, which takes a lot of man-hours.
    We would like to be able to fully automate this process, so we are making this request.

    Boxレポートの定期出力をフォルダ指定で出力できるようにしてほしい。
    現在は、レポートを定期出力することは可能ですが、ユーザーに提供する場合は手動で出力結果を移動する必要があるため工数がかかってしまいます。
    完全自動化できるようにしたいため、リクエストします。

  3. Allow End Users to run a Collaborations Report for Content they Own

    As organizations scale, IT Admins may want to enable end users to manage their own content and who has access to this content. Users being able to run a collaborations report and/or a folder and files report on content that they own is important for enabling users to manage their own content collabs so that these responsibilities can be distributed, and don't necessarily fall solely on the admin and security teams who manage Box to audit content and associated collaborations. End users that own content should be empowered with all the tools necessary to manage who has access to content…

  4. Ability to distinguish logs with classification labels added or removed from the report.

    The logs of adding and deleting classification labels will be output from the User Activity Report as "Add Template" and "Delete Template".
    However, since the details are blank, it is not possible to determine from the user activity report whether the logs actually add or remove classification labels.
    Therefore, I would like to see the addition and deletion of classification labels added to the items as "Add Classification Label" and "Delete Classification Label" instead of "Add Template" and "Delete Template".
    If it is difficult, I would like to see it placed in the detail column so that we can distinguish…

  5. Please implement the ability for Admins to specify the folder to export to when exporting a report.

    In the course of our work, we sometimes share reports exported by Admin to users.
    Currently, this is handled by inviting users as viewers to the exported reports (folders).
    However, due to the need to share reports on a regular basis, a huge number of report folders are currently displayed on the user's "All Files" screen.
    These folders are expected to continue to grow, and users are already finding Box very difficult to use at this time.

    Please implement the ability for Admins to specify the folder to export to when exporting a report.

    業務の上で、管理者が出力したレポートをユーザーに共有することがあります。
    現在は出力されたレポート(フォルダ)にユーザーをビューアーとして招待して対応しています。
    しかし、定期的にレポートの共有が必要なため、現在は膨大な数のレポートフォルダがユーザーのすべてのファイル直下に表示されています。
    これらのフォルダはこのまま増え続ける見込みで、ユーザーは現時点で既にBoxを大変利用しづらい状況となっています。

    管理者がレポートを出力する際に、出力先フォルダを指定できるようにしてください。

  6. About modifying storage values in the User Details report

    <About modifying storage values in the User Details report>
    Just like the storage value of Insights in the Admin console has been corrected, we request that the user details report will also be corrected to display more correct values.
    Due to the UI change, the Insights storage in the management console now displays a relatively correct value, but the user details report has not been corrected and is now showing a lower value.
    As a result, there is a difference between the storage value in Insights and the total storage value output in the user details report.

    <ユーザーの詳細レポートのストレージの値の修正について>
    管理コンソールのインサイトのストレージ値の修正がされたように、ユーザー詳細レポートもより正しい値が表示されるよう修正をお願いします。
    UI変更に伴い管理コンソールのインサイトのストレージは比較的正しい値が表示されるようになったが、ユーザーの詳細レポートでは修正されておらず少なく表示されています。…

  7. Schedule settings for all reports

    Currently, the following reports cannot be scheduled.
    ・Platform Activity
    ・Outbound Activity
    ・Security Logs
    ・Legal Holds
    ・Retention

    There are several types of reports that only the administrator can output, Since it takes time to output each report, automatic acquisition on a regular basis will improve operational efficiency.

    (日本語)
    <すべてのレポートでスケジュール設定をできるようにする>
    現在以下のレポートではスケジュール設定することができません。
    ・Platform Activity
    ・外部のコラボレーション
    ・セキュリティログ
    ・リーガルホールド
    ・リテンション

    管理者しか出力できないレポートの種類が複数あり、各レポートの出力にも時間がかかるため、
    定期的に自動取得が行えれば業務効率化につながります。

  8. Actions to make documents and folders (box drive, 'Make Available Offline' ) appear in reports as Downloads - same as normal downloads

    When identifying anomolous downloads (ie potential data leakage), we utilise both Box Shield alerts and User Activity reports to establish details.

    However, User Activity reports (csv, column E 'Action') do not differentiate between those documents and folders downloaded, and those that are 'Made Available Offline'. When attempting to avoid data leakage, the difference is important. Making content available offline is a legitimate task for users. However, large quantities of normal downloads may indicate fraudulent theft of data.

    We need to be able to differentiate between the two types, as soon as possible

    Because User Activity Reports record items as 'Download'…

  9. Detailed reports on the number of API calls

    The API has a rate limit, and an error will occur if it is exceeded.
    This time, an error occurred because the number of API calls exceeded the rate limit.
    We would like to launch apps during times when the number of API calls is low, but at this time there is no way to check the number of API calls in a time range.

    Please implement a report that allows us to see which apps are making API calls, at what time of day, and to what extent.

    <APIコール数に関する詳細なレポート>

    APIにはレート制限があり、それを超えるとエラーが発生します。
    今回はAPIコール数がレート制限を超えたため、エラーが発生していました。
    APIコール数が少ない時間帯にアプリを起動したいのですが、現時点では時間帯のAPIコール数を確認する方法がありません。

    どのアプリが、どの時間帯に、どの程度APIコールを行っているかを確認できるレポートを実装してください。

  10. Add more detail to Box Admin Report folder descriptions

    Background:In the headers of folders created by Box when Box Admin Reports are run, there is "Folder description". This gives various details associated with the report, including:
    Status, Report type, Run on, Date range

    Enhancement Required and Reason:
    When there are so many reports being run during the day, and having to wait for them to complete, it would be helpful to add further metadata:
    - Users or groups - any and all selected during report preparation
    - Affected folders and files - any and all selected during report preparation

  12. Ability to see the output period of the report expanded.

    We are aware that the report can currently output information for up to the past 7 years.
    More data will remain over the next 7 years, and we know that we will have no choice but to extract the necessary reports each time.
    However, it would be very time-consuming as it is, and further expansion of the report output period would improve convenience, so we would very much like to see this addressed.

    現在、最大で過去7年分の情報をレポートで出力できることは認識してます。
    今後7年以上残るデータが増えてきますが、その都度必要なレポートを抽出する他ないことも承知してます。
    しかし、このままでは非常に手間となりレポートの出力期間をさらに広げることで利便性の向上にも繋がるので是非対応してほしい。

  13. Ability to select users outside the tenant in the user filter of the user activity report.

    Currently, when retrieving activities of non-tenant users, it is necessary to output all without filtering and then select the target data in Grep.
    Our tenants have a large number of users, and if all the data were to be output, it would be a huge amount of data, and the above process would take a lot of time.
    I think that selecting users outside of tenants will reduce our work time and improve convenience, so I would really like to see this happen.

    現在は、テナント外ユーザーのアクティビティを取得する場合は、フィルタをかけずにすべてを出力してからGrepで対象データを選定する必要があります。
    我々のテナントはユーザー数が多く、すべてのデータを対象として出力すると膨大なデータになり上記作業に多くの時間がかかります。
    テナント外のユーザーを選択することで、こちらの作業時間が短縮し利便性の向上に繋がると思うので是非実現してほしい。

  14. Ability for users to track activity

    In the Closed configuration ,Only admins and co-admins can track activity on the files listed at the URLs below.
    Users cannot be tracked.
    If users can export reports, they can perform on themselves statistical analysis.
    As a result, it becomes possible to actively use Box.
    So I want users to be included in the targets that can be exported.

    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043696594-Tracking-User-Activity-on-Files#:~:text=If%20your%20admin%20enabled%20Restrict%20Content%20Creation%2C%20only%20the%20primary%20admin%20and%20co%2Dadmin%20can%20export%20Content%20Insights%20reports.

  15. We want users to be able to output a "folder and file" report for each folder.

    (Japanese follows English)
    Currently, only administrators can output the "Folders and Files" report.
    We would like users with editor permissions for the target folder to be able to output a "Folder and File" report for each folder.
    At that time, We would like to be able to select whether the report will be output to that folder or the output destination.

    現在、「フォルダとファイル」レポートは管理者しか出力できません。
    対象のフォルダに対し編集者権限を持つユーザーが、フォルダ単位で「フォルダとファイル」レポートを
    出力できるようにしてほしいです。
    その際レポートの出力先はそのフォルダ内か、出力先を選択できると望ましいです。

  16. heatmap

    Would love a heatmap report/feature that shows how often particular folders (or files) are accessed (over a specific timeframe). This way you could quickly identify folders/data you may not need to keep any longer. This would allow you to identify folders storing stale or useless data that could be cluttering up everyone's view. You could tie this into policies that could auto-delete/archive folders that have not been accessed within a certain time frame.

  17. Add date and time of application of classification labels to the Classification Report

    The current classification report lists which content is assigned which classification label, but does not show the date and time the label was applied or the user who applied the label.
    The date of application and the user who applied the label are displayed in the folder/file details, but this is only the case when the classification label is applied manually.

    We would like to add an item to the classification report because it is expected to take time to investigate the cause when a classification label is unintentionally changed, and there is a security risk such as information leakage…

  18. Ability to Name Scheduled Reports

    Add the ability to name the scheduled report. Currently the report is delivered as a csv file with the generic name of the report being run ie: "User Activity" and a date/time stamp. It would be very helpful to have the ability to type the name of the report so when it is delivered to me or my team the name is meaningful, and we readily know the content of the report. For example, if we have multiple reports scheduled, but they all arrive with the name "User Activity" we must open each one to determine what the content is…

  19. To be able to run a report on folders that a group has access to

    Collaboration Report on Groups to list all access to users added/removed and folders. This will likely help Box admins to track user groups, users and associated folders all in one. Currently, you need to go to the group in order to view the members of the group and what folders are currently given to the group.

  20. Folders and Files reports - exclude filename

    Provide the ability to exclude filename from "Folders and Files" reports. We would like to be able to exclude this field since it may contain sensitive data. This is currently a field that is not able to be excluded. If there is a required field we would prefer if to be File ID. This is important since we would like to be able to perform usage analysis but do not want to provide sensitive data (even metadata) to our data analysts.
