    This is very difficult from a technical and scale perspective, so we are not likely to fulfill this.

    Keep sending your suggestions and use cases, though!

  2. Track Legal Hold events and notify certain users when these events occur

    A Legal Hold report would help with this too. In looking at legal holds there's reporting for each hold but not a comprehensive report listing all hold activity

    This is unlikely to be something we build. Admins could accomplish this through the events stream or a tool like Splunk.

  3. Custom Message When Deleting Users

    We would like to have a custom message that is sent every time we delete a user from our enterprise account.

    This is unlikely to be prioritized given other commitments.

    What types of messages would you like to send? Are deleted accounts only for those who have left the company? Would they also receive the message? Is there generic information that Box can do a better job of sharing with users?

    Thank you for this suggestion! This is unlikely an integration Box will build.

    Fujitsu can call our APIs and build this into their app.

  5. Hiding list/view of Collaborators without removing ability for users to add new collaborators.

    This is more of a cosmetic request to hide all collaborators (view of owners and co-owners is fine) but still provide ability for collaborators to invite new ones.

    This is the first request we have heard for something like this and the use case isn’t totally clear to us.

    It seems to be pretty narrow with low impact so we will not prioritize it on our roadmap, but we will keep an eye out to see if this begins trending.

    This is not something we plan to expose to Admins. We will continue to optimize search for end-users without the intervention from the admin team.

    This is not currently planned. We would be happy to review with additional use case data. Can you share the problem you’re trying to solve?

  8. Add/Update 'Active Shared Link' Badge when Link Has Expiration Set

    Adjust the 'active shared link' badge/icon to include a visual if that link is set to expire.

    This is currently not on the roadmap as we have not heard this request from many other customers.

    We will consider it in the future if there is increased customer demand.

    This request has been raised with MSFT several times as there is no provision in the WOPI protocol to solve this as is. They have communicated that this is not on their roadmap

  11. Custom Terms of Service: Time-based (annual re-acceptance) and acceptance grace period

    ANNUAL RE-ACCEPTANCE: Add ability to set custom time-based re-acceptance criteria. Example: Require Managed Users to accept terms of service upon initial login and annually thereafter.

  12. Access Statistics Toggle for Admins

    It would be useful to be able to enable or disable access statistics for non-owners.

    Currently, there are some collaborators that are required to be editors to be able to sync, but should not be able to see access statistics.

    Thank you for your suggestion. This is a niche use case and would cause additional complexity on the Web App side. We will reconsider with additional demand and use cases.

  13. Option to restrict folder owner from inviting other users as co-owners

    We only want certain Project owners to be able to change folder properties.

    This is narrowly valuable, and would be confusing to introduce more customization to permission levels. Therefore, this is not planned.

  14. Add Customizable 'Advisory Message' for Retention Policies

    Just as admins can customize the 'Advisory Message' shown to users for Classification policies, we want to customize the message shown to end users when they click for 'more info' on the 'Retention' UI element in the webapp (aka add an 'Advisory Message' field to the Retention Policy creation UI in the Admin Console).

    USE CASE: We would like to provide customized, specific messaging for our end users when a retention policy is applied. These users might be coming from a world where retention was managed differently. We want more control over the verbiage used.

  16. Automatic Disable of Account Based on Activity

    We would like the ability to technically control the automatic expiration, or alert users that their account has not been used in 90 days.

  18. Detection and blocking of distribution lists

    We use many distribution lists to communicate.

    Technically, Box does not stop you from adding a distribution list email as a collaborator to a folder. All members of the list get email notifications but access to the folder is not granted to anyone on the list. This is expected.

    This suggestion is merely a protection measure that can be addressed by user education, so it may have a low impact.

    This is an interesting request and likely something we should look into for future improvements to how we handle distribution lists.

    Because there’s a workaround and we have higher impact requests, we will table this suggestion for now.

    We are not planning on supporting this feature in the near future and will revisit if we have more demand from customers for this functionality.

  20. HTML5 Video Support in Custom Terms of Service.

    We would like to have a compliance video embedded in the Custom Terms of Service popup that appears in user trying to gain access to Box

    This is a very interesting request, and not one we have considered previously.

    It’s an unlikely addition, but we will consider this with additional demand.

    For now, is it possible to use a Box link for the video?
