  1. Box Drive icon size

    Would like for the Box Drive icons to be bigger again. On the latest version of Box Drive 2.16, they are smaller and that makes it harder for them to determine whether or not files are locked.

  3. Drive: Notifications when there is simultaneous editing happening

    When multiple people are simultaneously editing in Drive multiple versions save as different copies. There should be notifications so people don't have to lock files to let others know they are editing a document.

  4. Make an Alias of Box Drive

    Hello,

    Previously, while using Box Sync on Mac OS, I was able to get quick access to the files by making an alias of the Box Sync folder.

    I was also able to set the Finder preferences so that "New Finder Windows Show the Box folder."

    However, it looks like neither of these are possible with Box Drive. Is there any way to make an easy shortcut to Box? The only option I've found is to place Box Drive in Launchpad.

  5. Sidebar is too dark

    Font needs to be legible in sidebar of Favorites. Currently the font is white when viewing list of all files, but font turns black when viewing a specific folder. It's too hard to read black words upon blue background. Please revise, thanks.

  8. Change login flow of desktop apps so it does not use default browsers

    Box Notes also uses the same login flow as Box Drive - which uses the default browsers to login (IE for Windows, Safari for Mac).

    We have Windows and our Idp cannot use IE for the login process. We would like to request support for using other browsers or a different login process that does not require IE.

  11. Popup

    After I edit a file, a green notification popup is displayed telling me I just edited the file. This popup follows me around and prohibits me from clicking links (edit file e.g.) until I close it. While somewhat minor, it is rather annoying to have to close each popup notification, when moving about and editing multiple files. Thanks.

  12. Select folders from hard drive to sync with box

    It would be very convenient to have an application that would allow a person to go in from their Windows Explorer to flag folders that already exist on the hard drive that would be synced and updated on Box. I would strongly prefer this to having to sync things the other way around, as I consider my hard drive to be my "home base". For instance, I would like to just right-click on my work folder located on my hard drive, and then select an option that would flag it to be synced with my box account so that any…

  14. Make direct download link names editable

    The direct file download link needs to allow for the name to be either changed by the user or better yet... the actual file name. Currently, the direct download link is auto-generated by Box to a random file name (with extension). This function does not work for certain scenarios where you want to host the file on Box and allow for download of a file and retain the filename.

  17. Conflict with the Adobe Photoshop short key (on Windows) Ctrl,Shift,Alt+B

    The short key combination (on Windows) Ctrl,Shift,Alt+B, overrules the Adobe Photoshop version of this combination by opening a Box search window. As I use this combination in Photoshop (to open the black/whit dialogue window) it is often quite annoying that even when working in Photoshop this combination doesn't work as intended. An option to have the possibility to change the short key combination (or another solution) in another would solve this problem. More so because I understand that checking all short keys that are in use in any program is impossible.

  19. Box Drive Should Show Files With Illegal Filenames or Characters

    We need Box Drive to be able to point to the offending error in Windows Explorer or Finder. Click on the offending file, folder is opened and file is selected in Windows Explorer or Finder in order to fix.

    not planned  ·  Kyle Williams responded

    This is not something that we have on the roadmap for the foreseeable future. Notifications were suppressed for these items and we will be investigating different ways to make problem items in general more discoverable.

  20. Ability in Box Drive to decide where to store documents offline in the PC or external driver

    With Box Drive would be great to be able to decide where to store the documents offline in our PC or external drives – exactly like with Box Sync. Or even to change the location after the installation of Box Drive.
