  1. Ability to sync folders across multiple users

    My corporation has several regionally-controlled folders containing information that should be the same. Right now, that information has to be manually copied and/or reconciled to ensure the data is the same. I would like the ability to connect multiple folders from different users to ensure that the data is always synchronized across the regionally-controlled folders.

  2. Freeing up space with Box Sync

    I would like the ability to save the Box sync folder onto a different drive on my PC. Currently, it's on the C drive, but it fills up FAST, so it would be incredibly beneficial for me to save it to another drive on it.

    Barring that, I'd like the ability to free up space on my Box folder so that it's only on my machine when I need it.

  4. Provide a sync client for Linux - like Dropbox, Nextcloud etc has.

    When logging in to the shared area I've been invited to, I get a pop-up telling me to complete my set up by downloading the sync-client. But, there is no sync client for Linux to be found, at the download page.

  8. Auto-sync sub folders

    If you sync a main folder, every folder under it or created inside it should get synced. I shouldn't have to go back to box.com to see if someone added a folder to the main directory if I have it so that directory is synced.

    So if I have main directory Projects and someone adds a folder called Peanuts, it should automatically sync the peanuts folder and all its contetns because I told box to sync everything in the Projects folder. I shouldn't have to search out new folders every day, it should automatically download them to my computer.

  10. box sync ignore files

    Are you kindly considering adding a feature to skip / ignore certain paths (directories, files) stored on local machine from syncing? Some examples of situations where inability to exclude files from backup causes undesired issues: 1) There are programs which store temporary files among synced folders. These temporary files frequently change and are deleted on program exit, which results into frequent unnecessary synchronization and deletion of files in cloud, therefore waste of computing resources and bandwidth. 2) Specific program creates empty file "running" to indicate it's in running state. Box Sync does not sync empty file but warns user each…

  11. Display folder sync warning message and revers sync from local folders

    Dear Admins,
    would it be possible to have an option , warning about all data deletion or when whole box folder is being removed from box, be shown before sync. with local folders? This would prevent data loss.
    As well option to sync. from local copy will enable option to easily restore data from Box, this would be appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Klara Satinova,
    Kyndryl

  13. Show path of synced files with errors

    Box currently only shows the folder and file name of an element that had an error with syncing but no path. If you have a lot of files and folders it's impossible to find these elements and fix the sync error, especially if a file has a repeatedly used or undescriptive name.
    It doesn't work to search the box folder on Mac and I can't search files that haven't been synced yet in the web interface, so at least the pathname should be displayed, so I can find the affected file locally.

  14. Remove Box-branded Box Sync folder icon in MacOS Finder Sidebar

    I just want a normal-looking, unbranded folder in my Finder Sidebar.

    The current Finder Sidebar shows a rather ugly eye-sore of a logo in place of a plain folder icon, with no way to disable this customization so it pollutes every Finder window. I've tried pasting a new folder icon onto the Box Sync folder in the "Get Info" dialog box as is customary on MacOS for ALL other applications, but Box doesn't respect that icon (or the user's wishes).

  16. Improve Excel edit management

    The synch for Excel does not seem to work very consistently or effectively. Simple edits on a table caused the file to split into 4 separate versions.

  17. Configure file uploading for .extension files

    Box synchronization issue comes if file name is started from .extension. Same thing works fine during manual uploading process. A provision should be added to configure the filter settings to upload during file synchronization.

  18. How to preserve folder date created & timestamps

    Please please please preserve the date created for a folder. When I sync a folder across another laptop, the date created changes as the time of upload. Me, including a hundred other people do not want that. Files seem to have their date created, date modified date & timestamps preserved.

    Basically, can you please create a system where the folder properties ARE preserved and as a facet of BOX make other properties separate from windows folder properties so that it's easier for us as local users and business users to sort their data how they want to.

    If you can…

  19. To be able to lock down folders so they won't be accidentally moved or deleted

    With many people working together, sometimes folders can be accidentally dragged off. It would be safer if the basic folder structure be locked down so to avoid accidental deletion and relocation but still allow users to create additional subfolders.

    Also, in order to prevent random placement of files, folders/subfolders might also be locked to prevent files from being saved at a certain level.
