  1. Add functionality for ad-hoc sync

    Some files are hanging during the sync process. This is usually solved when we log out and back into the sync application, but this is not ideal.

    We want to know if there is a way to add a button or option in the Sync app to restart syncing/scanning while logged into the application.

  2. Make the problem files screen more usable

    Make problem files hyperlinked back to the Web App so users can easy click to take a look at the document on box.com.

    It's not always clear whether a problematic file exists only on my desktop, only on Box, or both. Clearer signals about that would be appreciated too.

  3. Unsync or Delete from Box notification.

    Our admin believes having the pop up appear before the scan would reduce mistakes. If there is a large folder sync'd the pop up occurs after it has scanned the folder which can take a few minutes.

    Users continue with their work and when the pop up eventually appears they are making mistakes as they do not read it and clock dismiss.

  4. Box Sync not updating Icons on my documents folder redirect change

    Box Sync works correctly if the my documents redirect is configured the first time. However if the folder is redirected to a different folder, and the files are not moved by the location tab under my documents but simply the location is updated, the my documents icon is not reset to a simple folder.

    Steps to reproduce:
    Create a pristine box sync (first setup).
    Redirect your document folder to a folder below box sync.
    (Up to this point everything is fine)
    Stop box sync (quit from mini icon)
    Open the location tab again and redirect the folder again, this time…

  6. File Type Support: .nd Files

    Have .nd file types supported on the Box Sync product. We use .nd files not for QuickBooks files, but for models we build. We would like there to be an option to upload these types of files through the sync interface.

  9. 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.

  12. Report on Sync Incidents or Errors

    A lot of the time, Sync errors are because of users. If you classify and identify these errors for our admin, it can help them use Sync better or identify a way to leverage Web App/Box Drive

  13. Mass enable notifications under Account Settings --> Sharing - General Email and Notification

    We want to encourage people to rely on messages in Box as well as via email if more appropriate. Currently, the default is that the email notifications are turned off. We would like to be able to choose to default ON with individuals deselecting if they prefer.

  14. Add breadcrumbs to folders in the Box + Outlook integration.

    Due to the fact that we have many folders with the same name, the Box + Outlook integration would be significantly more useful if it could include some breadcrumbs to indicate which folder the file was in.

  16. Redirect to customer subdomain when using 'View on Box' feature

    If a user doesn't have an active Web App session, and they click 'View on Box' from Office, they are brought to the generic login page.

    We would like Box for Office to check the user's subdomain and redirect them accordingly.

  17. Box Edit Uninstaller

    We like a standard un-installer for Box Edit (even if only the for the EXE version.) We are having to use the PowerShell un-installer requiring admin right assistance multiple times a week and it is not sustainable.

  18. Box Edit should not use = signs in folder path

    User is unable to edit quickbook files because they have a "=" in the path name and quickbook doesn't support that.

  19. Provide versions of Box Edit ahead of time for testing purposes

    We would like to get new updates of Box Edit to test before it becomes generally available. We would also like the ability to control auto update and possibly block this feature.
