  1. User Interface Experience in Reporting.

    1. When generating a report through Admin Console, you have to manually search for the folder list and often get too many queries and takes too long. It would be a better experience to be prompted with the root directory that you can just drill down to which folder you want to report on in addition to the search functionality.
    2. When creating a scheduled report, the interface is a bit confusing because you have to hit Schedule Report, then hit schedule again, this should be a once step process and is confusing to most users, additionally the schedule button have a…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Bandwidht monitor and reports

    As there is this mostly new policy in regards of the bandwidth limit per user (1 Tb), which in case of any user using more than the limit will automatically closes the account (loosing all the information), I suggest the creation of a command which allows the admin to monitor very clear the bandwidth usage, so measures can be taken if the limit is being reached.

  5. If a user's email address is changed on the management console, please write the changed address.

    Currently, when a user's primary email address is changed on the admin console, it is reported as an "Edit User" item in the "User Activity Report." However,
    it is not possible to determine whether the "Edit user" item refers to a change in the primary email address just from the display on the report,
    so it is necessary to check the email address change notification date and time each time. Please add an item to the "User Activity Report" when you enter your email address on the management console,
    or I would like the functionality to be improved so that…

  7. Show Affected File Details in Exported User Activity Report for Removed Collaborations

    When running a User Activity Report on Removed Collaborations, you are able to see the granular file name details on the Box website when selecting "View" and hovering over the affected user.

    Please include this in the report output that is exported when selecting "Run" as currently the report only shows "Parent Folder" which is misleading when restoring access as there are cases when the collaborator only had permission to a specific file inside the parent folder causing issues when restoring access for users that were offboarded and then onboarded again due to internal processes.

    This will also improve audit…

  9. Update the user detail report so that the administrator can see status of the automatic acceptance of invitations

    Invitation auto-acceptance settings can be changed for each user, but may be "pending" when an admin invites a managed user to a folder.
    Please add an item so that administrators can check the setting status in the user details report whether the managed user has automatic invitation approval disabled or enabled.

    <ユーザーの詳細レポートに招待の自動承諾設定をどう設定しているかを確認できるよう項目を追加してほしい>
    招待の自動承認の設定は各ユーザーで変更できますが、管理者が管理対象ユーザーをフォルダに招待する際に「保留中」になることがあります。
    管理対象ユーザーが招待の自動承認を無効にしているのか、有効にしているのか、管理者がユーザーの詳細レポートで設定状況が確認できるよう項目を追加していただきたいです。

  10. Enhanced filtering/sorting when selecting folders and files

    When selecting the affected folders and files the search filtering could use some enhancements.

    I'll use the user filter options and search for a keyword but there are so many hits to filter through - it would be great to have some options on sorting the list. At the very least to sort alphabetically.

  14. Add information about deleting tasks to the User Activity Report

    If a task is accidentally deleted, the current User Activity Report can't see who deleted what task and when.
    There is currently no way to check if the deleted task was really unnecessary.
    We would like to see more items related to the task function in the User Activity Report so that administrators can see who deleted what tasks and when.

  15. Exclude Geographical access through Microsoft Applications

    In the Geographic Activity and its Report, it shows access from countries like United States and Singapore where it is accessed not from those countries but via Microsoft integration.
    it would be great if it can be removed because it is not actually accessed from those countries.

    Would it be possible to run the activity report and select some days in the week ?
    It could be interesting to see the activity during the week-end (saturday and sunday), so we can see if it's normal or not.

  18. Feature to retrieve a list of apps added to a managed user account

    Currently there is no ability for tenant administrators to manage the apps that users are adding.
    At a given point in time, we request the ability to get a list of app addition statuses in order to understand which apps are being added by managed users.

  19. allow for setting schedule for a report that's been run (and saved) once

    Hi

    an (easily implemented?) suggestion: when a file report is saved and run once, it seems that it can not be easily re-run on a schedule - one has to create a completely new report and set the schedule from the start. This is not ideal - I like to test things out before I commit to a schedule. Can you allow admins to set/change the schedule for a saved report even though the original saved report is a one-off/manually run?

  20. share reports in a parent folder

    When you create a weekly scheduled report (User Activity report for example) and share it with a user (as a Viewer), this user sees too many folder named "User Activity run on xxxxxx".
    It is because it's the report subfolder that is shared with the user, and not the "Box reports" folder.

    Is it possible to store scheduled reports inside a parent folder (like "Box user reports") or a named one by the administrator creating the report ?
