  1. Add Make Available Offline control to Explorer/Finder toolbar

    We are pushing our users to start using Drive instead of Sync. Our helpdesk team brought up that they are concerned that the current UI for MFOing content (right click file, click “Make Available Offline”) is not intuitive for end users. They are requesting a button for “MFO“ to be surfaced on the top toolbar of the Windows Explorer window when an item is selected, so that the option is visible without having to right click the item.

  3. MFOffline/MFOnline multiple folders at once

    I'm dealing with tons of folders so it would be great to have this option. Need the ability to select multiple folders and mark them all at once.

  5. Be able to move files on Box online and have it update in Box Drive without having to log out.

    When moving large folders via Box online, the folder dissapears within Box Drive. According to Box, this is intended behavior, and requires the user to log out of the software and log back in, which resets what is synced. Box Drive should be able to update folder changes without having to sign out of the account.

  6. Open a file in web apps immediately when clicking on link in Box web file browser

    Currently, clicking on a link opens a new tab in the web browser with a preview of the file and the option to open the file in a web app. There should be a preference to open the file directly in a web app or to generate the preview screen. The preview screen would be useful if the text of the displayed document could be copied without line breaks at the end of each displayed line. I often open many documents per session to copy snippets, but have to take the extra step of opening the doc in a web…

  7. Indicate when a file has been shared by me

    Indicate when a file has been shared by me. This used to be a feature (an icon would appear next to the file) that I relied on because I don't always remember if I've shared the file or not. Now I may send a certain file more than once to a particular person not remembering that I already sent it.

  8. Android File Association Fix

    On Android, other apps prompt you to "open with" when opening a file there is no association for (ps1, vbs, lang of your choice). However Box makes no such prompt. Please update Box Android to offer an "open with" dialog like other apps have.

  9. large file size zip

    When using the Shared Link for large zip files the user is directed to the Box site (https://wi-fi.app.box.com/), then given an error and a download button to retrieve the file. The error displayed is "We're sorry, this file type is not currently supported."

    When using the Direct link to share a large zip file, rather than the user being taken to https://wi-fi.app.box.com/ the file is downloaded directly to their browser download folder. This is a much cleaner user experience.

    Would like to have the same download experience for the Shared link, as the Direct link.

  13. Make Box Drive a NTFS volume

    Box Drive is currently recognized as a FAT32 "installed volume". Whenever I try to copy a file from my NTFS SSD, I get a system message telling me that some file properties cannot be copied.

    I don't know if that can cause any problem in the files content, but it surely hurts our working efficiency, since we have to do an additional click every time we need to upload a file throughBox Drive.

  14. NetSuite integrations security enhancement.

    Allow the creation of a folder in Box that is secured by box, but the record is attached to the transaction. For example, under bill payments adding a box folder that can hold the contract for that specific payment. Contracts have more confidential information that needs to be secured. Since security in NetSuite is best used as a group, not all who can see if a payment was made, should see the details of the contract. Therefore the select folder should allow more restrictive security, managed by box.
