    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!

  2. Enhanced Lock/Unlock on Box Drive for CAD files

    I hope the Enhanced lock/unlock experience, which is currently only available for Office files, be made available for CAD files and others as well.

  3. A snapshot of contents within a Box drive folder

    Have you ever looked at a top-level Box folder and felt overwhelmed by the prospect of having to dig through and drill down to every sub-folder just to know what the contents are?

    Do you get discouraged at the thought of looking for a single file that could possibly exist way down the rabbit hole of Box folders and sub-folders?

    Would you rather have the ability to glance at a snapshot of an entire Box folder and all the sub-folders and files that exist within it?

    A simple yet effective solution is a "tree directory" view. This is a feature…

  4. Display warning if a document is open

    Display a warning similar to read-only if another team member has a file open. Currently this is not possible without code installed at the individual PC level and there is no solution with MAC (just confirmed with support). The conflicting versions can be frustrating for teams and the tiny lock icon is just not a large enough warning when opening from box drive.

  5. Ability to force sync of Box Drive

    Currently, Drive relies on event poll for updating cached contents, and if events (updates on web) are not picked up by Drive in a timely manner, then local contents get outdated (out of sync with web). As a workaround, we want the ability to force sync of a selected folder (maybe add a right click menu to force sync/refresh cache).

  6. UI enhancements to indicate moving/copying activity in progress

    When moving/copying files and folders in BoxDrive, I want to be able to see visually that an operation is taking place.

    Currently, BoxWeb displays a green dialog at the top of the screen when you move or copy files or folders,
    but However, BoxDrive has an explorer-like feel, so I don't think this kind of display appears even when a move/copy is performed.

  7. Auto lock/unlock for read-only file.

    Currently, BoxDrive works with AutoLockUnlock=1 as below.

    1. When we open a read-only settings(Windows OS file property), it is locked automatically.
    2. And then, when we close the file, the read-only setting is gone.

    Please improve as below.

    1. When we open a read-only settings(Windows OS file property), it is not locked automatically.
    2. And then, when we close the file, the read-only setting keeps.

    Best,

  8. We want to update the sync on the Box Drive in real time.

    The data edited by myself on the Box Drive will be reflected, but I would like the synchronization to be updated in real time for data edited/saved by other users.

  9. [Box Drive's ability to require re-authentication when changing networks]

    After authenticating Box Drive, we want it to detect that the network has changed (For example, changes in IP addresses, etc.) and re-authenticate. If this is not possible, I would like to see the retention period for authentication information shortened (up to 24 hours).

    This is because, although only authorized terminals can be authenticated, Box cannot be used from unauthorized networks.

  10. Box Drive support MacOS Monterey

    Box does not support Box Drive aliases with Mac OS Monterey. We need this feature back so users don't remove/delete files and folders from Box by mistake.

  11. Get separate (mapped) shared links for a large number of files under a shared folder

    I am trying to generate separate shared links for a large number of files (1000+) under a folder, and map them to their original file name, so I can share these files separately.

    But we can only do that either by the whole folder (not what we want), or by selecting files one by one (too time-consuming).

    We hope there will be a function when you share a folder, we can also have the option to generate separate share links for each of the files under the folder, and a corresponding mapping file is generated automatically.

  12. Updates on the lock functionality after Save as

    I want the lock to come off properly after Save As.(BoxDrive)

    If you save a file to a folder in Box Drive using "Save As" in the Office app and then close the app immediately, the newly created file will remain locked.
    If I close the app immediately, the newly created file will remain locked.
    The lock is not automatically removed when the application is closed.

    After saving the file, other users are not able to edit the file, and this is interfering with my work. I would like to see this fixed.

    名前をつけて保存後にロックが正常に外れるようにして欲しい(BoxDrive)

    Officeアプリの「名前を付けて保存」でBox Driveのフォルダにファイルを保存し、
    すぐにアプリを閉じると、新しく作成されたファイルにロックが残ってしまいます。
    アプリを閉じても自動的には解除されません。
    保存後に他のユーザーがファイルを編集することが出来ず業務に支障をきたしているため
    修正をして欲しいです。

  13. UI enhancement - View full file names

    It is frustrating that I can't read the full file name when looking at box online, I cannot adjust the column widths with the file information and if I hover over the file name it still does not show me the file name. Any one of those options would be useful.

  15. Ability to retain BoxDrive logs after logout/login.

    I'd like BoxDrive logs to be retained after logout/login.

    I would like to be able to get the log before I log out even if I have logged out of BoxDrive.
    If you want to investigate the logs due to unexpected movement or problems, it will be difficult to investigate afterwards if you log out of the BoxDrive once for data safety and other reasons.
    We want to prevent this from preventing us from identifying the cause of the problem.

    BoxDriveのログをログアウト/ログイン後も保持されるようにして欲しい

    BoxDriveログアウトした場合でもログアウト前のログを取得できるようにして欲しい。
    予期せぬ動きによりログを調査したい場合、データの安全などを考えてBoxDrive から一度ログアウトしてしまうとその後の調査が困難となります。
    これにより原因が特定できないことを防ぎたいです。

  16. Allow Marking Folders as "Move Locked" To Prevent Users From Moving Certain Folders Regardless Of Permissions

    Our admins are constantly dealing with users who accidentally drag and drop folders into other folders. This can have a big impact across our org, especially when a high level folder that's shared across the company is moved. Here's a common use case:

    We have a top level Projects folder. That folder contains a subfolder for every organization we do business with. Those Organization folders then contain subfolders for individual projects. We'd like to be able to mark the Organization level folders as Move Locked so that our users don't accidentally move folders from one Organization into another. This happens…

  17. Add iOS Shortcuts integration

    Simply add iOS shortcuts integration like your competitor. Save to box, append to file in box function ecc would be a great feature. The only reason that I’m not using your great service is the missing of this integration.

  18. Show appropriate message when user does not have permission

    When I try to access a Box link for which I don't have access, it displays a message that
    "We can't seem to find the page you are looking for"

    Instead, it would be great to display a message directly stating that you don't have permission to view the page and also provide an option to request permission directly from the screen. Also, it would be great to provide a list of users who can provide access to that folder.

  19. Ability to order files by file names

    I'd like to fix the order by ''file name''
    but even I correct it once, the order gets back by ''updated date'' again.
    ※like a normal storage file , want to keep the setting

  20. Add auto-lock/unlock feature in Box Drive or provide a configuration tool

    Add auto-lock/unlock feature in Box Drive or provide a configuration tool

    In Box Drive v2.21, it is possible to enable the ability to automatically lock/unlock files when they are opened in Box Drive by modifying the registry.
    However, it is difficult for end users to modify the registry, so we would like to see Box Drive include the feature to automatically lock/unlock files, or provide a configuration tool (such as a batch file for registry modification) to modify the registry.
