  3. Allow Box sync in Server version OS

    Since there are a lot of application that rely on UNC path, and are run in server, supporting box sync in server version will be very userful.

  4. Please include the Box Sync app to use Windows 10's Metered connection setting. Disabling box sync on metered connection (Cell Hot Spots)

    Give the user the option to enable or disable syncing on a metered connection. A lot of the time I want to sync while at home or the office. But I dont need to download 500mb of co-worker changes while I just needed to check my email.

  6. Show "Last Updated By" in Box Sync

    In BOX.com, there is a field to show the “last updated by”, which shows the name of the collaborator who last modified the file.

    Would like the same feature to be available in Box Sync. We would like to tag the filename with the modified by collaborator via a script.

  7. Sync from parent of View Path Collab

    Currently cannot sync a folder from the parent of a View Path Collab. We want to use the API to add collaborations and keep the context but also let our users Sync.

  8. Allow Auto-Provisioning from Box Sync App

    Currently, users who get Box Sync pushed to their computer (so they see the pop-up Box Sync login page) but haven't gone to the webapp to auto-provision their account end up not being able to log into Box Sync as the Sync login flow does NOT support auto-provisioning.

    Request: Allow a user to auto-provision their account from any endpoint, including Box Sync.

  9. Enhanced Locking Experience on Sync (mimic file server experience) - Auto-Lock & Unlock

    Adapt the Box Sync / Box for Desktop lock/unlock experience to mimic the standard locking UX that users are familiar with from Windows file servers.
    Example screenshot from file server UX: https://cloud.box.com/s/4px71vfralrlpnj6x9sdeoquyxdellg6

    Key Components:
    -Pop-up upon double-clicking a file to ask user if they'd like to check out (lock) a file or open a read-only version
    -Auto-unlock upon closing the file
