  1. Box Shuttle Scheduling Feature onboard

    Currently BoxShuttle does not have a scheduler function.
    By adding a scheduler function as a standard feature, data migration can be set up in advance during the night, which is expected to be more convenient.

  2. Improved Shuttle error documentation

    Currently the documentation only has a few of the possible errors that can appear during a Shuttle migration, so it'd be helpful to have a more comprehensive list of such error messages and how to handle each of them.

  3. Option to limit Shuttle mobile access to read-only

    To avoid mistakes made when checking the status of Shuttle jobs on the go, it'd be helpful to have an option to set mobile access to read-only mode, disallowing jobs to be started, stopped, deleted, etc.

  4. Bulk creation of migration jobs

    Creating jobs manually via the UI is not a problem for a small number of jobs, but it can become a long and error-prone tasks in the case of larger migrations with dozens of jobs.
    It'd be useful to create multiple migration jobs by specifying creation parameters via a CSV or Excel file.
    In addition, it'd be useful to have bulk created jobs using the same source to be automatically queued for execution.

  5. Group and filter migration jobs

    Currently it's possible to sort migration jobs and filter by status, but it'd be helpful to be able to group jobs and filter by other criteria.
    This would be specially useful for larger migrations with dozens of jobs and could avoid mistakes when using the UI (e.g., starting/stopping a job by mistake because the list is too long).

  6. Bandwidth scheduler for Shuttle jobs

    Currently it's possible to change the bandwidth of a particular job on Shuttle, but it's necessary to open each job and change it manually.
    It'd be helpful to have a bandwidth scheduler to enable cases where a customer wants to use different amounts of bandwidth along the day (for instance, 10% during business hours and 100% at night or during weekends).

  7. Smarter mirror deletion

    Currently the mirror deletion feature deletes and reuploads folders that were simply moved on the source.
    It'd be helpful to have Shuttle identify moved folders and move them within Box, instead of uploading everything again.

  8. Specifying shared folders as destination folders

    Currently it’s not possible to select shared folders when choosing a destination folder on Shuttle, and this reduces the number of accounts that can be used in migrations to Box instances using a closed folder structure (i.e., all content centralized in a few accounts).

    If it becomes possible to migrate into shared folders, it’d allow the use of more migration accounts that could run more jobs simultaneously and speed up migrations projects.

  9. Box Shuttle - OneDrive Multi-geo Tenants

    Having the ability to migrate data from MS OneDrive within a multi-Geo tenancy. Shuttle engineering team have confirmed and stated the Shuttle migration tool does not support Multi-geo tenants.
    However is it possible to achieve this via the Box Consultancy (at a cost) using the full blown version of Shuttle!

  10. Large user lists don't load in Box Shuttle and there is no way to filter or narrow scope

    Build an option to filter on specific source user groups or OU's before trying to generate or load the user list.

    Current behavior: Admin account is authenticated and user list is not able to load/populate because there are too many users on the source side.

  11. Having staggard jobs for high number of file transfer through box shuttle

    Currently box shuttle does not give the option to run the job either by size of data transfer or number of files.

    If we have the option to stagger the job by number of files or size or even system auto divides the job into sub jobs then data transfer can be even faster and more convenient to handle.

  13. Box Shuttle should allow Box as one of the source systems to migrate from

    Currently, Box Shuttle standard tooling only supports migrations from OneDrive for Business, Dropbox for Business, and Google Drive as a part of Google Workspace. Box Shuttle should support Box as one of the source systems, so that Shuttle can be utilized for Box to Box migrations.

    For example, consider this use case: a researcher is leaving institution A, and their research lives in institution A's Box instance. Their new institution, institution B, uses Box, and they need to get 10 years worth of research data from institution A to institution B's box instance, without having to download and reupload, or…

  15. Enable Shuttle to Migrate Google-specific filetypes without converting

    Currently, Shuttle uses an export feature of Google Drive's API when exporting Google Workspace documents, and this feature converts exported files into their non-Google Workspace corresponding formats (.gdoc> .docx, .gslides > .pptx, etc.). Since Box supports Google Workspace filetypes, Box should look to employ the non-public API endpoint that Google offers that can be utilized to export files in their native format without converting them.

  16. Allow data migration from local mac source.

    We would like to use Box Shuttle (now available to Business- and Enterprise-Accouts) to transfer our locally stored data to Box and use Box as our main data management system. But Box Shuttle does currently not allow Mac as a local data source. Shuttle is only usable with Windows.

  18. Migration of files larger than 10MB from Google Drive

    As it stands, we are unable to migrate content from Google Drive due with there being a HARD limit of 10MB as the max file size.
    Google have a workaround which is outlined here - (1) https://stackoverflow.com/questions/55274737/is-there-any-way-download-bigger-than-10mb-documents-using-google-drive-api#:~:text=1-,This%20is%20answered,-in%20this%20question and here (2) https://developers.google.com/drive/api/v3/reference/files/get

    This would mean changing the Shuttle tooling so that Instead of using the Drive API Files:Export method, you can use Files: get (2) with fields = exportLinks.

    The limit on exporting Google files larger than 10MB is imposed by Google. We have reviewed the various available APIs and workarounds, but none of them produced a viable result. They all have other limitations that make them unsuitable for migration.


    We will continue to monitor as Google continues to evolve and adapt its platform, and will look to increase this when or if it becomes viable.

  19. Add a specific provisioning setting for Shuttle

    Currently, Box Shuttle relies on pre-existing Co-Admin permissions in order to grant Co-Admins access. However, after a certain amount of TBs have been migrated, any further migration could incur a large cost to a customer. Since this can heavily impact customer spend and have affects on project timelines and prioritizations, Administrators should be able to grant specific access to only Co-Admins that need and are approved to use this tool.

  20. Box Shuttle - Ability to View and Modify Queued Migrations order

    It would be nice to be able to see what I've added to the queue, the ability to delete a queued migration or re-order it. It would also be great if you could note which can be ran simultaneously and which should be ran one after the other.
