  1. Add ability to change permission settings for Box Drive to allow the share operation.

    For example, we have a scanner and want to be able to directly scan to the Box Drive folder.

  3. Box Drive: Change icons for syncing vs. synced files

    I honestly think the best solution is to have a smaller icon when the file is synced, and have a larger icon when the file is syncing. You’re assuming the file is synced at all times, so no need for a giant icon to say “yes, it’s synced”.

    However when the file is syncing is when there could be an actual issue, so you could make that icon large to say “hey, this file isn’t up to date here, give us a second.

  4. Outlook Attach with Box: Improve navigation icons

    Make it easier to navigate up/down/new folder. The icons currently are not clear and are too small.

  5. Publish a changelog of Box Drive updates

    The blog is nothing close to release notes and version history. I’m looking for something more industry standard. Please put that in as a feature request. Knowing, for example when 2.0.70 and 2.1.105 were officially released (date) and the changelog (massaged for general consumption, if not raw) si what these are for and these press releases on the blog are not a replacement for technical info.

  7. Granular caching ability for Box Drive

    Right now, Box Drive pre-caches any content within a folder as it’s accessed. This can create an issue if there is a large file (~1 GB Executable) in the folder on Box which causes the native file explorer to hang.

    We would like granular caching ability for Box Drive to set a file size so that not everything needs to be pre-cached.

    As some commenters noted, files are not cached automatically when users access a folder. Rather, the metadata on the files within a folder get cached. Files themselves will only be cached/downloaded if a user double-clicks on them.

    Thank you for the suggestion. We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap.

    Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!

  10. Push information on AD information in Box Drive for first time login (e.g. tenant name)

    To allow for configuration that allows Box Drive to understand that the first authentication should be against the client's SSO provider, rather than prompting the user to enter their email address. Some options that were mentioned were to allow Box Drive to read a value containing the user's email address, or to configure Box Drive to launch a customer specific authentication page.

  12. Allow drive to ignore .git locations

    Including this as an option in Box Drive would be helpful.

  13. Ability to re-arrange All Files page on Drive, including external folders, for organizational purposes.

    We would like to be able to move non-owned and external folders around for organizational purposes on their private Drive, without impacting the actual external/owner of the folder. For example: Company X shared Folder A with me at Company Y. I would like to move Folder A to my Company X folder in Drive so it's not clogging my All Files page (without this impacting Company X's folder).

    Thanks for the suggestion! We’re looking at ways to improve content sprawl in the future on Box Drive. We’ll consider your suggestion, along with other options, to help solve this problem.

  16. Persist settings through non-persistent VDI sessions even if they're not on the same machine

    IT admins setting up non-persistent VDI environments want to be able to have users persist settings between machines

  17. Add link to file location to problem file report page

    Many users are prevented from troubleshooting their own problem files because they do not navigate to the actual location of the issue, or they do not really know what file has a problem. This is also a very common sense UX improvement (that would be easy to do)

  18. Do not allow users to complete a system logout or shutdown until all items are uploaded to Box.

    We trying to leverage Box Drive to replace home drives for students. They are using Box Drive in their computer labs, but have recently reported that Box Drive will allow a user to log out (or shut down their computer) before all content has been uploaded to Box. I know we have a dialogue box associated with "in progress uploads" when logging out of the Box Drive application specifically. We are requesting an expansion of that logic to prevent users from completing a system logout or shutdown before Drive has a chance to sync all their files.

  19. Consistent Search behavior between drive and webapp

    Both the webapp search and Box Drive search call the same search API, but the ordering returned by the API is different, possibly because the API takes the requesting client (webapp or desktop) into account. This is a request for consistent behavior between desktop and webapp

  20. Display pop-up when opening a locked file.

    The lock icon is small and users can overlook this and try to edit the file without knowing that it is opened read-only.
