  1. Ability to sync dot-files

    I'm a developer and my projects are synced to box, and I need, when I access my projects on another computer, to retrieve all my files, including my "dot" files (such as .env, .gitignore, .editorconfig, etc.). Only, now "dot" files are not synced, as explained on this page:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044195433. This is a problem, so it would be nice to be able to manually force certain files to sync or to have them automatically sync.

  2. Update Box Sync to ignore temporary save files from Terramodel (*.~pr)

    Trimble Terramodel is a CAD program similar to AutoCAD or BricsCAD and saves a copy of the main drawing file (PRO files in the case of Terramodel, DWG in the case of AutoCAD) and renames the extension ~PR (AutoCAD equivalent is BAK).

    Box needs a simple way of toggling the option to ignore certain file types such as these to prevent syn errors and long scanning sessions during sync.

  3. install selective sync on mobile app

    In the mobile app. for Box Sync, only sync the files I have marked to sync in Box.com. I have NO need to see all files in our entire organization and it is a waste of space on my phone,

    the request is to have selective syncing like on a laptop.

  7. scan .bak files

    For heaven's sake allow box to scan .bak files - it's practically the only reason I'm using box! What's the point of a cloud back up system that won't back up backup files!!

  9. Folder created on mobile does not sync automaticaly on desktop with Box Sync

    Solution : automatically sync folder created on mobile on desktop, or at least allow to activate syncing on desktop from the mobile app (this option is only available online - under sub / sub menu - but not in mobile menu)

  12. Sync from parent of View Path Collab
