  1. Remove an invited collaborator's access on a per folder level

    There are use cases where the content owners/co-owners would like the ability to remove an (external) collaborator's access to a folder on a specific date. Understanding that this can be configured at a global level (by setting timeframe), it would be helpful to have this on a per folder level as well.

    This would be beneficial as various departments/users share data of varying sensitivity and in various use cases (such as sharing with an external contractor whose contract is for X months).

  2. Request for the ability to not display specific folders in BoxDrive

    BoxDrive is very convenient because it can be used as an explorer, but due to user operational error
    folders or files may be moved to unintended folders.
    Folders to be collaborated outside the company can lead to information leakage,
    We request for improve that specific folders can only be operated and viewed with the Box Web Browser.

    BoxDriveはエクスプローラとして使えるので利便性が高いが、ユーザーの操作ミスにより
    フォルダやファイルを意図せぬフォルダに移動させてしまうことがある。
    社外コラボレーションするフォルダは情報漏洩につながることがあることから、
    指定したフォルダはBOX Webブラウザのみでしか操作・閲覧ができないようにしたい

  3. Disabling shared links after the link is viewed

    Currently there is the option have the shared link expire on a specific date. It would be beneficial to also have a shared link be disabled as soon as it is viewed. Having a link that's "one-time use only" would be ideal in various use cases like sharing sensitive information.

    Having this also be the case for invited external parties would be helpful.

  4. Mac Alias support with Box Drive

    Make it possible to use the Apple Mac alias (desktop short cuts) with Box Drive. It was great with Box Sync.

  5. Manage Box Drive folders that sync with the Box.com - I have to uninstall Box Drive from all of my devices

    Because I cannot select which folders to sync from Box.com, I cannot use Box Drive which makes going back to One Drive extremely appealing.

    This seems like such basic functionality and it's very disappointing that Box didn't provide it - and actually took it away when moving from Box Sync.

    My idea is for Box Drive to provide the same basic functionality that Box Sync had and One Drive and Google Drive and Dropbox have.

  6. Irrelevant Box drive storage pop-up for corporate users

    I'm on a corporate plan with my company. Why does Box keep showing this pop-up message everyday suggesting me to buy more storage?
    Don't you know I have no control over my quota or account type?

  7. About drawing function

    I would like to be able to change the thickness of the drawing pen.
    I know that there are different types of pens. However, I would like to see more variations in the thickness of the pen, like in Microsoft's OneNote.

  9. Make it possible to have content default to available offline

    When I create a file using my OneDrive that file is by default always available to me one the device where it was created. Having a similar option would be very helpful in Box especially when I am creating multiple folders worth of material and would like to be able to work on them while in transit or other locations without wifi. When I reconnect to the internet in One Drive it automatically updates the cloud version of the document with edits I made while offline. The current process of needing to do this manually for new folders/folder trees means…

  10. Cancel Download(s)

    It's absolutely insane that you cannot cancel file downloads from within the interface. I just started to download a folder locally (make available offline or Download Now option) and realized I didn't need the folder. I cannot cancel it. I have to wait till it finishes to remove it.

  11. Box Drive client should fall back to attempt direct connection if proxy fails

    In short, if Box Drive sees a proxy and attempts to connect via the proxy but that fails, it should fall back and attempt a direct connection before failing completely.

    I experienced this on Windows. Not sure if it would apply to other OSes or not.

    The specific details...

    I'm in a Corporate environment with a laptop. When our laptops are on the corporate network, we do go through a proxy. But when off of the corporate network, like working at home, it doesn't use the proxy. We use an auto-config proxy .pac file to control the proxy on and…

  12. It would be great if I could mark a folder to become a zip file. And the work of creating said zip file happens on your end.

    It would be great if I could mark a folder to become a zip file. And the work of creating said zip file happens on your end. This is with the thought that very large folders that have tens of thousands of items are easier to download, or share.

  13. Ability to customize/configure the location of the shortcut to Box Drive folder on Windows.

    We would like to have the ability to customize the location of the shortcut to Box Drive folder on Windows or to disable its creation.
    Right now, the creation of the shortcut cannot be disabled or customized (just as the cache location cannot be customised), and it's always created under c:\users\username\desktop. This is not ideal for users who are not allowed access to userprofile folder.

  14. Requesting notification of email address of who downloads song files.

    We send out email blasts to our subscribers and include links to music we license. We receive a notification that someone downloads the song files. But it does not say who? Is there a way to retrieve the email address of the person that downloads files from our box account?

  15. Prevent items with restricted movement from being moved on the Box Drive display

    If "Do not allow ownership of content to be transfered to external users" is enabled in the tenant settings, content cannot be moved to external tenants by users other than the administrator.

    However, when content is moved in Box Drive, although it is not actually moved, it appears on the display as if it is stored in the destination folder, and it does not return to the original folder until the user logs out/logs back in to Box Drive.

    Content whose movement is restricted by Classification Policies will immediately return to the folder in which it was originally stored, both…

  16. Prevent desktop box folder deletion

    Please create a way to globally disable users the ability to delete folders from their desktop with Box Drive.

    They are under the impression that if they hit "delete" on the folders they are removed from the Projects. This in turn has caused a lot of chaos from team members deleting the entire Project folders instead of going to the Box website and revoking their permissions.

    No amount of training we try do it can solve this with a company our size.

    Team members are deleting terabytes of data and it's exhausting trying to recover all this data.

  18. Can't filter search files marked for offline use to unmark quickly and regain HD space.

    NEED ASAP: See file list of marked for "offline use" to quickly/easily unmark to regain HD space. I regularly run low on space locally. Users should have a way for Box to ID files based on cache of local machine—to "unmark all" quickly, AS WELL AS selectively with a list of files marked offline to keep any files "offline available" as needed. A MUST-HAVE feature for managing files, since the whole point of box is file storage and accessibility.

  19. Need for Retaining and Utilizing EXIF Data when Uploading Photos to box.com and Box Drive

    I have been managing my photos on my PC and I'm considering migrating them to Box for better organization and accessibility. However, I've encountered a significant obstacle - the important EXIF data associated with my photos, such as the capture date and time, is lost once the photos are saved in a Box folder. This issue persists whether I upload the photos directly from the browser or through other methods.

    I'm using Box Drive on Windows, and I've noticed that the property values also disappear in Explorer. Interestingly, when I moved the same file out of Box Drive, the property…

  20. Allow Us To Move Collaborator Folders to a sub-folder without removing the permissions

    When a user shares a folder with us it sits in our Root folder. Can these show up in a Shared folder to save our Root folder having a load of odd name folders. We believe you can do this in Dropbox.

    ideally we need to be able to change the folder name at our end too without amending it at the user end.
