  1. Log configuration

    The logging/ caching mechanism could be quite a burden for users who have a relatively small C drive. Users with desktop tools which could generate a high amount of file versions, Drive's log (specially Engine log) would grow extremely fast and might even dry up C drive.

    It would be good if there are more options available to suppress/ log rotate/ or even stored Drive's log on a separate disk pre-defined by users.

    We don’t have plans to address this in the short term. We will continue to review this ask in future planning cycles to reconsider!

  3. Persistent Box Drive login for non-persistent virtual environments

    Persistent Box Drive login for non-persistent virtual environments. Currently, our employees working in Citrix have to login to Box Drive every day, but they do not need to re-login to other Box tools, such as Box for Office.

  4. Allow Excel's Shared Workbook feature to work on Box.

    Microsoft Excel has a feature called Shared Workbook that allows multiple users to edit Excel file simultaneously and still migrate each modifications into each others' Excel files.

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/about-the-shared-workbook-feature-49b833c0-873b-48d8-8bf2-c1c59a628534

    Box doesn't support this type of feature, but Google and Dropbox supports to notify users on (Office) file modification status to provide similar feature / user experience.

    While we won’t be building in support for the Shared Workbook feature as requested, we will be providing capabilities in the near-future that will provide more visibility when you open a file that is locked in order to prevent file editing conflicts.

  5. Versioning on Box Drive

    In the Box Web App, you can view different versions of a single file, see what changes were made and if needed, revert back to previous version of a file. We'd like for this feature to be available on Box Drive as well.

  9. Error notification of Box Drive should be restricted only be related to files which the user has accessed or edited before.

    Or implement a new setting. Or implement a new setting to switch on/off to receive the error notifications.

  13. Ability to save file without putting filename extension in the filename field

    In the save-as window, there is "Save as type" pull-down menu on "Save to Box" window, where you can select xlsx, csv, etc (for excel). However, Box for Office sometimes returns error if you don't input extension on the filename field. Shouldn't Box for Office be able to determine file format from the pull down menu?

  14. Hide/Turnoff Box Drive Error message

    With Box Drive, users are getting many error messages pertaining to incompatible file names. Users would like the ability to prevent continued notification since most of these files do not below to them. Possibly could be handled with a [Dont show again] or [Remove from alerts] check box

    You can disable notifications through OS controls for Box Drive. That being said, we are working on improving error handling in Drive to address the root problems and hopefully lead you to disabling notifications as they are an important part of our UX!

  17. Improve Box Edit Error - Unable to Save error message

    We would like to improve the messaging on this error so that it forces the user to save a new copy of the file. Too many users are simply closing the error and losing their work.

  19. Configure default file extension for save prompt

    On Office, it is possible to configure the default file extension to use when saving a new file. (doc/ docx/ pdf etc)
    We want this option also available on "Box for Office" or for Box for Office to read the default extension setting from Office.

  20. Using the Outlook Integration: Shared link settings be customizable (default to "Collaborators Only).

    All email recipients should then be automatically added as a collaborator to the piece of content being shared.
