    Python 2.7 and 3 are both supported releases. Python 2.7 will be supported through 2020.

    We review and update our python version periodically through Sync auto-update. We currently use python 2.7.9 with Box Sync. We plan to update to the latest version (2.7.11+).

    We only install Python to Box specific location on Windows (%ProgramFiles%\Box\Box Sync) and Mac (inside Box Sync.app bundle). Other applications will not use our python installation.

    We reviewed the CVE list of Python and there’s no CVE that requires immediate update from 2.7.9.

  3. Mac: Publish Box Sync in Mac App Store

    We use the Mac App Store as a software distribution method to lower the overhead associated with deploying software to our users.

  5. Add "Cancel" Button to dialog window when removing a folder from Box Sync

    When deleting a folder through Box Sync, a confirm deletion window pops up and warns the user that deleting the folder will remove it from all collaborator accounts but unsyncing will remove the folder from their computer only.

    It then only gives the option to click the buttons "unsync" or "delete". User thinks there should be an option to cancel to better account for user errors.

  8. Bookmarked items do not sync and are not visible in the Sync client

    We use Box bookmarks to avoid content duplication. Since we also use Sync, it is a confusing end-user experience

  10. Support Routing to 2 (Or More) Proxies for Network Traffic

    Currently Box Sync only supports routing traffic through 1 proxy (identified via leveraging the PAC file on the computer)

    We have advanced network traffic routing schemes in place and need the ability to route Box traffic selectively to 2 (or more) proxies based on:

    -Bandwidth/volume of traffic (i.e., routing uploads/downloads through a different proxy than all other Box traffic)

    -Security (i.e., monitoring and visibility requirements for some traffic but not other traffic)

  13. Customize 'Download Box Edit' URL for Companies that Restrict Users from Installing Software

    We restrict user computers and do not allow end users to download software to their machines (even if that software installation does not require admin rights). As such, the 'download Box Edit' prompt in the Webapp when a user tries to use Box Edit for the first time (when Box Edit isn't previously installed) is very confusing as users will click 'download' but then the installation will fail.

    REQUEST: 'Customize' the 'Download Box Edit' button, including choosing a custom URL that the button points to (for example, 'we have an internal software download catalog - I want the 'download Box…

  14. Outlook: Add Ability to Save the Email Itself (the .msg file or a PDF of it), Not Just the Attachment

    There are use cases (given Box's retention capabilities) for users to save Outlook emails themselves (.msg files) to Box using Box for Office. The Box for Office integration currently only allows the user to 'Save Attachments to Box', which doesn't save the actual email itself.

    SPECIFIC REQUEST: Adjust the 'Save Attachments to Box' button/feature to include an option to save the email itself (as a PDF or the .msg file) to Box along with the attachment.

    Thank you for providing this feedback! We don’t believe there is a strong enough use case to pursue this.

  20. Allow Auto-Provisioning from Box for Office App

    Currently, users who get Box for Office pushed to their computer (so they see the Box buttons in Outlook/Word/Excel/PowerPoint) but haven't gone to the Web App to auto-provision their account end up not being able to log into Box for Office as the Box for Office login flow does NOT support auto-provisioning.

    Request: Allow a user to auto-provision their account from any endpoint, including Box for Office.
