  2. Ignore unreadable files in Box Sync.

    The users environment causes Excel to create unreadable temporary files. Box Sync will not sync temporary files. However, not being able to read the file causes Box Sync to throw and error and quit. The user would prefer Box Sync to ignore unreadable files.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. LAN Sync

    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.

    All linked computers and shared folders will then download any new version of the file. With LAN syncing, Dropbox will look for the new file on your Local Area Network first, bypassing the…

  11. Support Kerberos Authentication for Macs (Box for Desktop)

    We require authentication for all traffic on our corporate networks/proxies.

    We leverage Kerberos and request full support of the Kerberos protocol for all calls made by Box for Desktop.

    Context: Currently, Box Sync supports Kerberos for the login flow (due to the Sync login page being an embedded WebKit browser which DOES support Kerberos), but Box Sync doesn't actually support Kerberos for its own network requests (that happen after the login flow).

  13. Subfolder Sync: Don't Sync the Files Located in the Parent Folder Path

    One of the nuances of Box Sync 4.X's 'subfolder sync' feature is that files that are located in the folders of the parent path for the synced subfolder are also synced, which creates a weird, and unexpected, experience for end users.

    Reference: https://community.box.com/t5/Box-Sync/How-Do-I-Sync-Subfolders-In-Box-Sync-4-0/ta-p/116

    REQUEST: Fix this behavior so that even when only a subfolder is marked for 'syncing', none of the files in the parent folders are also inadvertently synced, and instead only sync the parent folders to keep the path in tact.

  14. Ability to lock files from within application once they're open

    Our users would like the ability to lock a file once they have already opened a file in Box Edit/Box Drive/Box for Office.

    They would like the ability to do this within the document without having to navigate back to the webapp or sync to lock the file.

    Box for Office automatically locks a file when it’s being worked on. We don’t currently have plans to do this or Box Edit.

  16. Setting to adjust Box Edit startup launch when MSI is installed

    User would like to a way to prevent Box Edit and Box Local Comm Service from running upon startup. They have the MSI installed and all users in their environment do not utilize Box Edit. User would like a way to prevent Box Edit/Local Comm Service from launching for those users who do not utilize Box Edit.

    It still doesn't make sense to have to have the process running for all users when not everyone would be using the application. This would be applicable to both a virtual and non virtual environment since the same settings would apply to computers…

    We are focused more on the Office native integration.

  20. Support Kerberos on Macs

    Box currently supports NTLM V2 on Windows Box Sync, but only support NTLM v1 (with a keychain entry) on Mac Box Sync. Additionally, Kerberos is supported in the login flow (via the embedded browser) but not for the actual network requests that Box Sync makes.

    As such, some organizations would like Box Sync to fully support Kerberos as an authentication method for the login process AND for all network requests.

    Request: Add full authentication support for Kerberos.
