    Feature similar to DB: LAN sync is a Dropbox feature that speeds syncing dramatically when the file exists on your Local Area Network (LAN).

    What does that mean exactly? Well, when you add a file to your computer's Dropbox, the file is then synced with Dropbox servers. Dropbox will then initiate the syncing process as soon as it determines a change has been made to the file.

    Thanks for your note!

    This runs against our design philosophy of the Web App experience where everything can be achieved in the browser.

  4. 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

  5. Report on Sync Errors

    Our admin would like to report on sync errors, e.g. user receiving error, date of error, type of machine - Windows vs. Mac, OS X 10.11.4 vs 10.11.6, etc.).

    This will allow us to troubleshoot and hone in on issues that may be specific to certain environments, monitor trends in issues, recommend best practices

  6. Support for Differential or Bit-level Sync

    We would like support for Sync to recognize differential changes made to a document and only sync the changes, instead of the entire document, especially for large documents.

  14. Alert users that they cannot add root folders through Box Sync when 'Restrict Content Creation' is turned on

    Users are attempting to upload folders to Box Sync which automatically appear as if a root folder would be made (acknowledging that the folder will not upload a red 'x' will appear).

    The admin is asking for an alert that reminds the users that they cannot create root folders. Many of their end users have tried to upload folders through sync and assume that they will load despite the 'restrict content creation' setting.

  15. Report to view amount of content synced for each user

    This would be highly beneficial for admins to see if users have too much content Syncing. In addition, admins can keep their users from syncing too much content and having sync issues.

  17. Unsyncing a subfolder should not make a folder "partially synced"

    Once a folder becomes "partially synced" and new subfolder created in that parent folder will have to be manually synced.

    User believes that unsyncing a subfolder should not have this effect on future content created in the folder.

  20. Advanced filtering for sync

    It would be nice if one could sync all information matching a certain query. This could be very useful for the Salesforce or NetSuite integrations. Users could sync all information matching something like:

    vendor=GIRAFFE

    or alternatively, simply match all vendors. As an addition it would be great if certain content types could be excluded:

    match all vendors, but leave out the images and logos.
