  1. Granular Permissions for allowing Box Drive and MFO

    Granular Permissions for allowing users to access Box Drive and allow them to mark content for offline use.

    Similar to the way sync functioned, it would be good to have per-user permissions for Box Drive and MFO.

  2. Simplify Box Experience Per Design

    Currently, my firm has Box Drive integrated to our Salesforce CRM. What would help simplify and in the end optimize our experience by minimizing errors is to be allowed the option to remove the top search bar banner and the documents file path from the Salesforce instance. Limiting the access to other files from one contact to another can also help prevent accidental file modifications. Hope this can be of benefit to other Box users!

  3. explorer copy direct link

    Explorer/Finder Context Menu "Share direct link".

    Currently the context menu for files in Box Drive only handles copying to the clipboard the Shared Link. We want to restrict the use of Shared Links as much as possible and would prefer if Explorer/Finder would copy the direct link, which is the one that opens when we click "View on Box.com".

  4. Multiple users being able to update an Excel spreadsheet at the same time. i.e. Shared workbooks. using Box Drive.

    This would be a highly advantageous as I believe there are many other customers that would benefit from this.
    Game changer!

  5. Default Column Size for all Folders

    Currently the default column size in Box Drive for the Name column is very small and users have to resize the name column in each folder. Is there a way to apply a default column size for all folders in Box Drive for all users?

  7. Ability to exclude syncing certain files by type.

    Box Drive - exclude syncing certain files by type. I use several software that use this lock file approach and the lock files should NEVER be synced. (sometimes for size reasons, sometimes for frequent uploads and deletes)

  8. exit

    Leave "marked for offline" files reachable by a folder on the hard-drive when you exit Box.
    It would be nice if the existence of "non-offline" files was still shown, just that they wouldn't be openable.

  9. Set up the Box Drive installer so the user gets to Single Sign On (SSO) by default

    There are quite a few steps when logging in to Box when installing Box Drive. It'd be helpful for us if the users could get to the SSO window directly instead of first having to enter their email address and then click the (not so obvious) ”Sign In with SSO” link.

    It'd also be great if the ”NORDUnet Box Service” could filter away the list of services based on the domain name in the email address the user just typed, especially since typing the name of the institutin and and then ”enter” (which I know one isn't supposed since the…

  10. Provide an option to sync files with names beginning with '.'

    Box sync / box drive needs to provide an option or a setting that will enable files whose names begin with '.' to be sync'ed.
    Reason: I would like to be able to use Box Drive as storage for projects that I manage via Eclipse and GIT. However there are files and directories named .git and .project that currently box drive does not sync, which makes using my box drive as storage for such things impossible.

  11. Allow admins to block external users from using MFO in Drive

    Create an option to allow enterprise admin to block Box Drive for external users, on per user basis.
    We have this feature in Box Sync (for managed users only) and need this feature to be extended to external users for Box Drive, due to security reason: Compared to downloading from Box Webapp , it is very easy for external users to get a lot of our contents with MFO. It is out of our control and we cannot guarantee as well if external user’s machines are secure enough (HDD encryption, antivirus software etc.).”

  12. Hide comments except for poster and folder owner/s to see

    Add a folder setting that allows collaborators to post comments, but these comments are only visible to the poster and the folder owner. Responses to comments from an owner should only be visible to the original poster.

  15. Slow IO: Switch from SQLite to something faster?

    Benchmarks show that BOX drive is 50% to 90% slower than direct filesystem
    Boxdrive stores the files in the cache as-is so there is no cpu overhead in encryption or packing, IO should be as fast as native filesystem.

    Perhapse the SQLite database layer is slowing things down?
    If that's the case, replace Drive backend with something faster, like this one:
    https://www.iboxdb.com/

    See, it already has Box in the name :-D

  17. Disable drag/drop function for subfolders when navigating to save a file

    When navigating to the relevant subfolder to save a file, it is too easy to accidentally drag/drop a subfolder into a parallel one, on route.
    Causing headaches with missing folders and upsetting the folder structure.
    If the folder moving function could be frozen while saving files, this would be more secure.

  18. Option to prevent Drive from launching on startup by user

    We are preparing to deploy Box Drive to our users using the Windows .msi. However we've found that after installation, the Box Drive window opens automatically for every user, every time they log into the computer. For users on a shared system who are not using Box, this means dismissing the window every login.
    We'd like an option for Box Drive installation to not have the client launch automatically for all users. Or post-installation, allow the user to tell Box Drive not to open automatically for them. If the Box Drive client needs to run at login for every user,…

  19. Auto select search text upon opening Box Drive

    When I Press Shft+Ctrl+Alt+B to activate the search function, the previous search text is in the search bar. It's highly unlikely I'm going the same search a 2nd time. The text should auto highlight, so I can just start typing for the next search. Currently you have to manually select the text to overwrite.

  20. username

    "Copy Local Link" in the right click menu.
    There is a "Copy Shared Link" in the right click menu that creates a link to the file or folder on the Box web. I would like a similar function that creates a link to the local file system, replacing the first part of the path with "%USERNAME%" or "%USERPROFILE%". With this function it would be possible to send links to files in the local file system.
