  1. On Mac, Box Drive has problems opening files after install of Box Tools

    I use Box Drive on my Mac. Ever since installing Box Tools, I am having problems opening files. In particular, after a file was recently opened, changed, and closed, the file seems to get "stuck" syncing back to Box. It freezes up and will no longer re-open or finish uploading unless I fully quit Box Drive and restart it. This happens even if I tell it to refresh the folder or wait for an extensive period of time.

    I'm not sure why there is no better way to report a bug, but my "idea" is for this bug to please…

  2. 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)

  3. Box Drive & Box Shield

    Currently Box Shield classifies copy & pasting within Box Drive as downloading which results in a false alarm notification. It would be great to be able to see the difference between moving files and actually downloading files from a Box report.

  4. Lack of clear notification of whether BoxDrive is syncing or not

    There should be a clear icon in the Finder AND in the BoxDrive top menu icon clearly showing whether syncing is on or off. Support told em the only way to know if files are correctly syncing is to look at the files in the Finder and if there are NO ICONS then it's working. The lack of something is not a reasonable way to identify is something is working correctly. PLEASE add a symbol that shows the synching status that is easy to confirm!!

  5. Issue with File Viewing Recorded as Editing ファイル閲覧が編集として記録される問題

    I would like to request an improvement regarding the issue where simply viewing a file is recorded as editing. Viewing and editing are different activities and should be recorded and displayed separately.

    ファイルを閲覧しただけでも編集者として記録される現象について、改善を希望します。閲覧と編集は異なるアクティビティで、別々に記録・表示されるべきだと考えます。

  6. Make external folders more obvious in Box Drive and Box Web

    Currently internal and external folders are comingled in Box. Although collections can help organise data in the web app, for those who predominantly use Box Drive this could potentially lead to a DLP issue, particularly where the internal and external folders have nearly identical names. In both Box Drive and Box Web it would be great to be able to choose your own colour coding for these folders e.g. anything external showing red, or the ability to group all of your external folders under one main EXTERNAL folder.

  7. Automatic Size All Columns to Fit for Box Drive

    It would be great if all columns in the box drive could be automatically expanded so that file names are not cut off. This feature is available in another product that we used.

  8. Ability to see who locked a file

    identify who locked a file within Box Drive. If there is a file locked, it would be helpful to show the collaborator who has locked the file.

  9. Add history to box drive search box as it is ussual in all good software!

    There is no history in box drive search box! Viewed/edited files are even missing in the last open files in word or excel! Why I must enter search criteria again and again? Hire an UX specialist to tell you what to do!

  11. Better (or customizable) bandwidth limits for wedding media companies

    Better (or more customizable) monthly bandwidth limits and no transfer speed limitations. I run a wedding media company that does about 200TB of bandwidth/year. Coming from Dropbox, I think there is definitely a vacuum in the market for a cloud company to pick up their slack, especially for wedding producers...

  12. Boolean search function to be applicable to tags

    Would love to use my Box as a Digital Asset Manager but the tag system really needs a boolean search function.

    Boolean searching is used to help find search results faster and with more precision. Boolean searching uses operators: words like AND, OR, and NOT.

    We might have to take pour storage else where due the cost of having both a Box account and a DAM.

  13. Bookmark URL

    It would be nice if “Bookmark” type files were compatible with Windows URL files. Indeed, I have Box Drive installed on my PC and I cannot open URL files from my PC because the extension is not compatible.

    Sincerely,

    Evann

    Bonjour,

    Il serait bien que les fichiers de type "Signet" soit compatible avec les fichers URL de windows. En effet, j'ai Box Drive installé sur mon PC et je ne peut ouvrir les fichiers URL depuis mon pc car l'extension n'est pas compatible.

    Cordialement,

    Ewann

  14. BoxDrive behavior of files with the “Browser Use Only” classification label

    We are considering setting up a "Browser Only" classification label for collaborative editing of Office applications to enforce download restrictions so that collaborative editing is only possible in the browser.
    However, when a user tries to open a file with the "Browser Only" label, the viewer and previewer will not be able to open the file because of the download restriction.
    Also, when opening BoxNote from BoxDrive, you will be redirected to the browser, but Office files must be opened by right-clicking on Box.com and previewing them, and when editing, you must perform online editing.

  15. <About BoxDrive becoming a native application for Windows 11

    <About BoxDrive becoming a native application for Windows 11
    Until Windows 10, when you right-clicked on a content in BoxDrive, the BoxDrive menu was displayed immediately.
    In Windows 11, the menu does not appear immediately, and the menu finally appears after pressing "right click > check other options".
    We are aware that the menu will appear as before just by right-clicking when it is compatible with Windows 11 native apps, so please take action.
    OneDrive and Notepad++ already support native apps, so only BoxDrive is not as convenient as it should be.
    Although it is a small matter, it causes…

  16. hidden files

    We use Box Drive for Backup purposes (company policy dos not allow any other product for that purpose). Would be great to have a possibility to upload also the hidden config files which are marked with a dot in front of the filename (e.g. .abc-config) using macbook.

  17. Remove the cautionary message at the bottom of file request page

    At the bottom of file request link, the following message is displayed:

    "Before submitting, please make sure that you trust this site, have the rights to the data and want to share this content to the owner of this file request.
    Box Terms of Service|Box Privacy Notice"

    It does not seem professional at all. As we are paying to use the services, this should not be displayed. Okay if you want to advertise that its Box platform, leave the terms and privacy notice. If you are law firm etc, people are already cautious about sending files. the "advice" seems very…

  18. Online-only applied recursively to mixed folder

    It would be great if you could "online-only" a given folder when its contents within are a mix of partially online and offline.

    My workflow often requires me to have individual files sporadically made available offline within folder structures, over weeks and months. Easy to lose track of what's locally stored and what's not.

    I don't seem to have an option available to click on a given folder with partially offline / partially online files and just tell it to all become "online only" in a recursive manner.

    On these types of partially synced folders, all I see is the…

  19. Flag mutliple folders for Offline User

    Currently, in order to mark a folder/file for offline, you have to do it individually. It would be nice to have the ability to drag select folders/file and have the context menu provide the option to mark grouped items as available, as you might with any other native Windows function.

  20. Box Drive uses all upload bandwidth when sync

    Set an option to limit the upload (optional and the download) bandwidth when sync is in progress or upload large files, because when devices are connected to slow internet lines, it consumes the entire bandwidth and cannot work properly.
    Note that this is a standad feature of other similar tools.
