  1. Add Ability to 'Open with Office Online' via Box Drive

    Users are not currently able to edit/open files to Office Online (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint Online) from Box Sync / Box Drive

    The key use case of this is to allow users to enter into co-authoring mode when starting in Box for Desktop.

    REQUEST: Add an 'open in Office Online' option in the right-click menu for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files when in the Box for Desktop file system.

    not planned  ·  Kyle Williams responded

    This is currently not planned, but we will consider with additional customer demand.

  2. 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.

  9. Would like the ability to restrict certain folders from Sync'ing

    For PCI content that is not suitable to be on multiple PCs, we'd like to restrict the ability for Owners and Editors to choose to Sync these folders.

  10. Add One-Way Sync

    There are so many good use cases for a one-way sync. Sometimes you want to provide access to a library of folders and files to users, but you don't want them to be able to modify them on the server...you just want them to have copies available on their PC.

    Why not just give them access on Box with Viewer permissions?

    I get that argument, but sometimes you don't want your users to have to go on the internet to access the files...You want them to have the files at their fingertips even when offline...but if they inadvertently delete or…

  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.

  18. Add support for Integrated Windows Authentication for Box Drive login flow

    Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) allows for the following login flow for the webapp:

    1. User logs into Windows
    2. User goes to Box and selects to use SSO to login
    3. When the user is redirected to their Identity Provider, the browser sends the user's OS credentials and the user does not need to enter credentials again
    4. User is logged into Box

    This would provide a more seamless experience for users. In our computer labs, users would sign into Windows, click one button in the Box Drive login window, and have access to their Box content natively in the OS.

  19. Add retry behavior if an edited file is unable to be uploaded

    Perhaps add a retry button/option in the error pop-up and let the user decide, or automatically retry actions depending on the error.

    Thanks for your note!

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