    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. I would like shortcut files created on Box Drive to be reflected on Box Web as well.

    I am aware that shortcut files (.lnk) created in Box Drive (on Explorer) are ignored as a file type and cannot be synchronized.
    However, in my work, I use Box Drive a lot and sometimes create shortcuts, but I can't share them because they are not synced, and they are deleted when I log out of the system.
    I feel this kind of specification is very inconvenient.
    I would love to see you respond to make this happen.

    (Japanese)
    Box Drive(エクスプローラー上)で作成したショートカットファイル(.lnk)は、
    無視されるファイルの種類として対象となっており同期が出来ないことは認識してます。
    しかしながら業務上、Box Driveの利用が多くショートカットの作成することがありますが、
    同期されないことで共有もできず、またログアウトしたことで削除されてしまう。
    このような仕様だと大変不便に感じてます。
    実現に向けて是非対応してほしい。

  4. Adding a function to manage tasks in BoxDrive

    Since we mainly use BoxDrive, we would like to be able to conduct task management from BoxDrive as well.
    Specifically, we would like to be able to check the tasks assigned to us and the tasks we have sent from Box Drive, just like "My Tasks List" and "Tasks Inbox" on Box Web.

    <BoxDriveでタスク管理できる機能の追加>
    BoxDriveをメインで利用しているため、タスク管理もBoxDrive上から実施できるようにしてほしい。
    具体的には、Box Web上の「My Tasks List」や「Tasks Inbox」のように、自分に割り当てられているタスクや自分が送信したタスクを、Box Driveからも確認できるようにしてほしい。

  5. Provide appropriate warning before moving a folder to a different owner in Box Drive UI

    In Box Drive, moving folder to a different owner looks like it works (a folder dragged to new Box location in Box Drive/Finder appears in the new location), but it actually fails and an OS notification pops up only briefly. The suggested fix (if the user notices the problem and can find the message about it) is also not ideal -- Box wants you to manually move the folder back yourself, but if you don't see this message right away then you might not remember where you moved it from.

    Ideally, this would warn the user about the change in…

  6. Allow BoxDrive search to be limited to files and folders names

    The current BoxDrive search will search the contents of the file as well.
    We would like to be able to narrow down the search target when searching, because sometimes it is enough to search only the file name or folder name.
    (In Japanese)
    現在のBoxDriveの検索はファイルの中身まで検索対象となっています。
    ファイル名やフォルダ名だけ検索で十分な場合があるため、検索時に検索対象を絞れるようにしてほしいです。

  7. Ability to display and move the BoxDrive search window anywhere

    The BoxDrive search window will be displayed according to your taskbar display settings.
    We would like to be able to display and move anywhere with mouse operation or setting.
    (In Japanese)
    BoxDriveの検索ウィンドウは、タスクバーの表示設定に合わせて表示されます。
    マウス操作や設定で任意の場所に表示、移動できるようにしてほしいです。

  8. 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.

    For Office files stored in Box, we are enabling the capability coauthor in real-time with collaborators. This will eliminate issues that arise when creating conflict copies. For other files types that do not support coauthoring, we do not have a feature planned on our roadmap, to notify users when the file is locked outside of the lock icon that is displayed on the file in the Explorer/Finder view. 

    We will place this in our backlog as we continue evaluating ideas to improve Box Drive.

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

  9. 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.

  10. Date and Time of uploading file on BOX

    Hi! I was faced with the problem of file date uploading on display on BOX.

    I know that usually, BOX shows "Today" or "Yesterday" if the file was uploaded to BOX today or yesterday. It's clear, but, I need to see the exact date displayed with numbers. For example, I want to see that the file was uploaded to BOX "18 of May, 2022" instead of "Today".

    Moreover, I even can't see the time when the file was uploaded to BOX. I work with the client in different time zones (the difference is 10 hrs) and sometimes it is really…

  11. 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…

  12. Box Drive specification improvement request

    Box Drive is downloading a large amount of event streams, which can overwhelm company's network bandwidth. Due to the network bandwidth pressure, the business other than Box has been affected, so please take measures.
    Here are the details:

    Box Drive is likely retrieving folder and file events that the logged-in user has access to, but is aware that there may be a large number of event downloads in the following cases, for example:.
    ・A specific user performs bulk operations on a folder in which many users are collaborating. (All events are downloaded to Box Drives of all collaboration users)

  13. Bookmarks to be synchronized with BoxDrive/BoxSyn

    Bookmarks created "online" are not synchronized to be visible by the teams using BoxDrive or BoxSync. Also the other way round.

    Our teams are bookmarking many external web sheets or other box folder locations to navigate and support each other, but the links are not visible for all the others.

    With that knowledge, the usage of bookmarks does not work in a global team.

    Request: Please synchronize bookmarks in all directions, as we do with all other files!

  14. Sort Field Preference in Settings

    My files and folders are all indexed with numbers. It would be helpful to always sort files and folders by name to keep the indexing order. However, Box keeps sorting by the "Updated" field, which completely messes up the indexing order. Is it possible to have a Sort Preferences in Settings so one could select which field should be the default for sorting?

    Thanks.

  15. Pause and Resume Uploads or downloads to or from Box

    The ability to Pause Downloads + Uploads so that Resource intensive tasks on other software can be carried out on a single computer/device without being slowed down by Box Transferring large amounts of data to/from the device to cloud. The ability to resume Downloads + Uploads after resource intensive tasks are completed.

    Not everyone/every company has the budget to have expensive "workhorse" computers or Gigabit internet (not to mention a lot of places dont even have gigabit internet. (Im lucky enough to have access to both where I work and I STILL run into issues from time to time)

  16. More detailed error handling with sync errors

    We have a user who is on Box Drive that has had several sync errors come up on his Box Drive client over the last week, but when he clicks on the info icon next to the s"9 items with sync errors message" it just gives them a generic error message with no details about which files can't be synced or how long they haven't been synced. I don't know if there's an existing solution for this, but thought I'd mention it here.

  17. Find the new place for getting a link to a file - Box Share

    The pop-up menu in Explorer doesn't have "Box" anymore. Instead, there is a "Share" item on the menu, without indication that it relates to Box. How about renaming it to "Box Share"?

  20. Configuring the Default Box Drive Folder Location

    In the latest version of Box Drive and OS it is no longer possibly to change the file path to a shared folder. This is causing many linking issues for my team as we work within shared files. Would love for this to be reconsidered again and put it the next box update.
