  1. Drive search on specific folder.

    I would like to have more granular search capabilities for Box Drive (e.g. ability to navigate to a folder in Drive, search only in that folder)

  3. Request to have webapp type filters when searching Box Drive on the desktop.

    We would like to transition to Box Drive and having search filters in the Box Drive search bar would be helpful in finding files and as a stopgap for OS search.

  4. Search Skill card metadata from Box Drive

    Searching for skills-enabled content, a video for example, in the webapp returns results from the various skill cards such as the transcript and keywords and this is part of what makes skills so valuable and powerful. The same search from Box Drive returns nothing based on skill metadata however so users would instead have to try and search based on other information, such as the filename, etc. As skills becomes more prevalent, the search behavior should be more consistent across interfaces if/when possible.

  5. Box Drive install to be shown as "Box Drive" instead of "Box"

    Our user believes that labeling the installation more explicitly as Box Drive, instead of Box, will be more clear.

  6. Make Box Drive Mark for Offline (MFO) file accessible when Box Drive not running

    Would like for files in Box Drive that are marked for offline (MFO) to be accessible whether or not Box Drive is currently running (e.g. before Box Drive starts up at login). Currently, offline files are only available after the Box Drive software has loaded -- this poses a problem for files that need to be available at user login time like the user profile files (Desktop/Documents/etc.). Box Sync worked fine for this purpose, but Box Drive MFO does not.

  10. Add preferences dialog to Box Drive on Mac (e.g., hide menu icon, change shortcut key)

    Most Mac apps provide a preference dialog for key settings. For Box Drive on Mac, I would expect pressing ⌘, when Box Drive's search is active to open preferences, where I could optionally hide Box Drive's menu bar icon (the icon inside Finder's sidebar is all I need to see) or change the shortcut key for searching (in case ⌃⌥⌘Space conflicted with another app) or adjust the maximum disk space used by Box Drive.

  12. Add 'x' or cancel/clear button to clear out old search terms in Box Drive

    Box Drive keeps the previous search terms in the search bar. If the user wants to do a new search, they need to manually clear out the old text.

    Our user would like to have an "x" button at the end of the search bar they could click to clear the field, versus selecting the text to delete it manually

  15. Consistent Search behavior between drive and webapp

    Both the webapp search and Box Drive search call the same search API, but the ordering returned by the API is different, possibly because the API takes the requesting client (webapp or desktop) into account. This is a request for consistent behavior between desktop and webapp

  16. Box Drive: Change cache location

    It would be really awesome to allow the box drive cache location to be placed somewhere other than C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Box\Box\cache, say on on a separate volume that doesn't consume space on C: (boot / application drive). Ideally I would like to place it on my second ssd D:
