  1. Limit the number of Box files/folders that can be Marked for Offline use

    We would like to limit the Box files/folders that we can Mark for Offline use, like what we currently have when modifying Box drive’s cache limit.

  2. Allow moves across owners in Box Drive

    Provide a configuration option in the admin console that would permit moves across owners so moves across owners could be successfully completed in Box Drive.

  3. Prioritize specific files for upload

    Hi, as someone who has to uploads and shares a lot of large image files through box, each over 1gb, it would be nice to have a way to prioritize which files get uploaded first.

  4. Manage Permissions directly on the folder in Box Drive

    Add ability to review/manage colloborators on Box folders through right click on context menu of Box Folder, when Box Drive is online. It's not efficient to go into Box Online to do this .

  5. Search Bar Prioritization

    Implement a feature that allows certain types of files to show up first when you use the search bar on Box. This will allow for better organization and easier access to specific client files

  6. Improve Box Drive memory usage

    Box recommend 4GB of RAM as minimum system specifications. But 4GB of RAM is not enough since Box Drive tends to use more than 1GB memory when a user open folder which has a lot of items. Therefore the fetching function should be improved to run efficiently on 4GB of RAM

    We are always striving to make improvements here. There won’t be one release were we resolve this issue though. Instead, there will be trying to make incremental improvements in all Box Drive releases.

  7. Set number of files displayed

    Allow a setting so that we can choose the number of files/folders displayed per page so we don't have to click through 4 pages to get to the end.

  8. Add refresh button to Box Drive

    Add a refresh button to Box Drive above the Log out option in the system tray. When our users experience Box Drive red marks on their folders we always tell them to log out and log back in to refresh the folders. It would be nice if there was a refresh button.

  9. Allow/Disallow apps on a per role or user group basis.

    Allow/Disallow apps on a per role or user/group basis. This could be for mobile apps, Box Drive, etc. Really make the control more granular than just all on/off for the Enterprise.

  10. 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)

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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".

  14. 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!

  15. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.).”
