  1. Select box reports export folder

    With the new scheduled report capability, it would be useful to determine the folder where scheduled report are exported as a way to grant access to a range of users. Whilst we can now select who are the viewers for a report, this is not ideal as people change roles, and therefore a location or a Box Group would be much more convenient ways to share scheduled reports

  2. Outbound collaboration report is now in line with other report formats but no option to schedule it?

    I understand why the Outbound collaboration report was recently updated and is now in line with all other reports but since it now takes 30 minutes to complete instead of 30 seconds why not immediately offer the option to schedule it like all others?

  3. View saved reports generated by other users

    Currently, a co-admin can view reports run by other users, but not save reports created by other users. We would like our IT Service Desk to create on demand monthly reports that we would provide to some of our content owners. This would require all members of our IT Service Desk to have visibility over all existing scheduled reports

  8. Box Report file management improvement

    Currently every generated report goes into Box Reports folder, making it rather difficult to neatly manage large number of report files.
    If it could be set to automatically sort report files into certain designated subfolders, etc., it would be convenient.
    I would also like the auto-generated report file names be customisable.

  10. Pulling file-level user activity reports in bulk

    I am trying to run a user activity report in Box. What I am hoping to see is which users accessed a set of files during a certain period of time.

    I ran the User Activity report in Reports against the parent folders that I was hoping to review, the activity log that came back only shows actions taken on the parent folders, no activity is shown for any of the files within the folders.

    Support has confirmed that there is no way to run this report against the sub-folders and sub-files of the folders selected.

    Having this functionality is…

  11. Workflow status report

    We would like to have a report that gives us insight into the status of Box workflows. We would like to be able to see the individual steps of a workflow and how long the individual steps take, for example, to see if and where a workflow is stuck.

  12. Allow the custom renaming of a report before it's run

    All the reports have a standard name (i.e. useractivityrunon2022-11-01-14-38-28Page1) and there is no ability to create a custom name. As an admin we run more than a single report in an hour and that report may be associated with a user or file name we're searching for. We need the ability to be able to customize the report name that is relevant so we don't have 5-10 reports running that all start with useractivityrunon{date and time} for example.

  13. Reports that allow you to see the history of apps added and removed from your account

    Currently, there is no way for admin to see what apps users are adding.
    Even if an app required by a tenant is set to "Add by default", the admin cannot see when it is removed by a user.

    We request that the history of apps added and removed from the account be added to the report so that it can be reviewed by the administrator.

  14. Report about the use of shared links

    It would be great to have a report that shows you the usage information of the shared links: How many times the link has been used, which user (if registered) has used it and on which date.

  15. Enable Box Admin (Content) search results to populate full-width screen, and shown FULL path of content

    Having searched for a string " " in Box Admin/Content, the results for a folder do not show the FULL path of that folder, because the full path length is too long for the report width.

    I have been advised by Box Support that this is expected.

    I suggest that the report width should not be hard-wired (as is currently) to fit laptop-width. Instead, the folder path should wrap onto a new row, or if screen-size allows (eg external monitor), the full path is shown on the same row.

    It should also be possible for users to change the width…

  16. Enhance Box Reports to store metadata (parameters used) in output folder

    Box Admin users regularly run several reports in a day or week, and may not read the content until days after run, and is difficult to identify the purpose it was run for, and the parameters used.

    It would be helpful, and not difficult to do, for Box to save the parameters used when creating a report, and perhaps offer users a free-text field to store (at the time it is run) the reasons why it was being run

    The following details should be available to view, when a report is completed:
    - report type (eg Box Sign, Classification, Collaborations,…

  18. Groups exportable Report needed

    I think every organization's admin could use a quick User Groups report. Essentially it would look like the Groups page, with the addition of Shared Folders and names of members.

    Columns:
    Group Name
    Created Date
    Number of Members
    Group's Admins
    Group Members (Names)
    Group Description
    Shared Group Folders
