  1. Find the new place for getting a link to a file - Box Share

    The pop-up menu in Explorer doesn't have "Box" anymore. Instead, there is a "Share" item on the menu, without indication that it relates to Box. How about renaming it to "Box Share"?

  2. Save file preferences

    The classification of my preferences of how I want the files to appear are not saved and you have to be changing it every so often, it is quite annoying

    La clasificacion de mis preferencias de como quiero que aparezcan los archivos no se guardan y hay que estar cambiandolo a cada rato es bastante molesto

  3. Configuring the Default Box Drive Folder Location

    In the latest version of Box Drive and OS it is no longer possibly to change the file path to a shared folder. This is causing many linking issues for my team as we work within shared files. Would love for this to be reconsidered again and put it the next box update.

  4. Moving from Box Drive now deletes instead of copies

    When moving a file from Box Drive to another volume like your computer, it now removes the file from BOX altogether. Prior to the latest update to the platform, it used to make a copy by default.

    We use BOX as a file server and this opens up the potential for accidental deletion. Making the source folders read-only doesn't work either because we have to be able to edit contents on BOX.

    Can you provide the option in a setting or elsewhere to turn on forced copy by default when dragging files from BOX to another Volume?

  5. Dragging files or folders out of BOX makes a copy

    With the recent update to BOX Drive, when you move something from BOX to your computer it removes it from BOX. It used to make a copy by default. We use BOX as a shared file server and this change allows for accidental deletion.

    Can you please add the ability to make this copy rather than move the file, only when moving out of BOX onto the computer or an outside volume?

  6. Request to increase the maximum number of users to be enabled with [Enable for select users and groups] for [Mark for Offline] in Box Drive.

    I want to enable [Mark for Offline] for Box Drive and release it for some users. However, the number of users we want to register exceeds the upper limit of 100, so we would like to request to increase the upper limit of [Enable for select users and groups]. We believe this update would improve the useability and increase the efficiency among the users.

    (Japanese)
    Box Driveの [Mark for Offline]機能を有効にし、一部のユーザーに対して有効化したいが、上限値となる100名を超えて登録したいため、[一部のユーザーに対して有効化]選択時の上限値を増やして欲しい。
    利便性も向上し、業務効率化に繋がるため、実現に向けてぜひ対応してほしい。

  7. Accessing external shared links via FTP agents.

    I request developer teams to look into the possibility of organising the access to external shareable links also via FTP clients. This would avoid the issue where a shareable link expires or gets blocked by the network setting of the external clients.

  9. Set personal defaults, like alpha by Name

    We need to be able to set personal defaults on our Box pages. For example, I want folders to come up in alpha order by name. Right now they seem to default to something else that seems random to me. It's very frustrating not having things in alpha order so that I can look them up easily. It makes no sense to have to take the extra step of setting the order to NAME every single time I go to a Box page.

  11. UI enhancements to indicate moving/copying activity in progress

    When moving/copying files and folders in BoxDrive, I want to be able to see visually that an operation is taking place.

    Currently, BoxWeb displays a green dialog at the top of the screen when you move or copy files or folders,
    but However, BoxDrive has an explorer-like feel, so I don't think this kind of display appears even when a move/copy is performed.

  14. Ability to manually update a Box Drive version (menu option)

    I would like to see version update added to the right-click menu of the app so that I can manually update when the latest version of BoxDrive is released.

    Currently, Box Edit and Box Drive are designed to automatically update their versions, but depending on the user, the timing of implementation may be delayed or there may be cases where the version is not automatically updated.
    In order to deal with this, we have to uninstall and reinstall the tool, which is very inconvenient.
    Therefore, I would like to see version update added to the right-click menu of the app…

  15. Add .dwl files to ignored file type list

    Would really appreciate .dwl files (temporary files created by Autodesk apps) being added to the Ignored file type for syncing in Box Drive. Currently .bak files are there which within Autodesk apps we have the ability to repath anyways. With .dwl files, we have no control... they go in the same folder as the file. They are not always deleted as they should be due to Program crashes and end up cluttering the folders needlessly.

  17. View Owner/Creator of Files in Box Drive

    We would like the ability to display accurate information about the Owner/creator of files within Box Drive for Windows. The Owner column in Windows was used prior to our migration to Box to show who originally created the file for a folder all in a single glance. Although Box.com shows the upload history of individual files, it's a manual process of viewing each file-- a pain point-- compared to the table view of File Explorer with the Owner column displaying. Currently, within Box Drive/File Explorer, the Owner column is empty. This would be useful for the users to know who…

  19. Ability to zoom-in/out by fingers on the touchscreen of my laptop PC.

    My laptop has the touchscreen. It would be useful if I could zoom-in/out files by fingers (pinch-in/out) on the screen. RIght now I have to use the toolbox which is awkard to use by fingers.

  20. Ability to customize promotion settings

    Please add a setting to not show the promotion that appears when users starts Box Drive.
    That promotion can be confusing because it forces the user to see it even if the company does not allow that feature.
