  1. 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.

  2. 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,…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Allow setup quota for Box Driver(Mac)

    Currently there's no way in Mac to check my Box driver's quota setting, nor allow me change it.
    Please open this feature to us. I want to use that to control my Mac's disk usage, especially when I need to upgrade my Mac to latest OS. I need to release my disck space for upgrading.

  6. Ability to prevent certain files to be opened via the desktop app

    Amteck has some documents that should only be accessed through online so that users can co-author. They would like to prevent certain files from being opened through the desktop.

  7. preset email address in the sign-in dialog in Windows

    When using Box Drive on Windows, i would like you to preset email address in the sign-in dialog.
    The email address can be get from the domain user's mail attribute.

    This is mandatory in environments where SSO is enabled/required.
    In the case of Box webapp, the IdP's authentication screen opens just by pressing the continue button once.

    However, in the case of Box Drive, you need to enter an email address to open the IdP screen.
    Also, IdP may ask you to enter email address again.

    The sequence of entering this email address hinders the user experience.
    We would like…

  8. Automatic Sign-Out after period of inactivity, to predetermined time after login.

    I would like to be able to set a time frame that forces user to have to sign back in after a certain amount of time. This would preferably be after a certain time of inactivity, but being able to force someone to enter their login credentials after a set time would also work.

  9. Box Drive activity should show up in the recents section of the webapp

    Would be great if the recents section showed in the web app showed all content recently used and not just content in accessed in the web app. When I am using Box Drive the webapp recents section does not pick up that content.

  10. The pop up box when you first sign up is very obtrusive. There's no X to click to make the box disappear and it's not helpful.

    Allow users to click on the basic steps box on the bottom left corner to disappear. It's obtrusive to have to walk through those steps to make it go away

  11. Drag-and-drop file uploads in any portion of white space in a given folder

    Files that are dragged from computer to browser window are not successfully uploaded to Box Drive folders unless they are dragged atop already existing files. Would you be able to expand the drag-and-drop's "catch region" to include all of the Box Drive folders' white space in a browser window? Thank you!

  12. Metrics for tracking most oft-accessed files on a Box Drive shared among a team, department, etc.

    OneDrive's tallying of the number of times particular files are accessed and by whom helped direct organization efforts for cloud storage and understand staff behavior. The Box Drive does not have a similar quantitative feature, as far as I know. Possible to create such a feature, to track who, when, and how often particular files and folders are used by staff permitted access? Thank you!

  13. Lock/unlock sub-folders at will

    Product enhancement request: Create one main link to access a folder and its sub-folders, yet block some sub-folders from being downloaded. Benefit to user is that I can load all files at once, yet allow access only when I choose to. I can provide the link to users once. This saves me time and reduces confusion. An example of how this is being used is for a product launch where some files have been approved for distribution and the others have not yet, but will be “released” later in the week.

    Example:
    · Create Folder 1
    · Underneath is sub-folders…

  14. Short cut link for the file in Box Drive should be available

    Windows shortcut link for the file in Box Drive is broken if the BoxDrive cache is deleted. If the shortcut exists, the file in Box Drive should be opened as far as it exists.

  15. Action Failed: Unsupported Name - no file path shown in tool tip

    For Box Drive errors where 'Action Failed: Unsupported Name' - the tool tip on hovering over the filename shows 'Unsupported Name on OS’, instead of the full file path (such as with 'Rename File Failed: Name Is Already Taken').

  17. Linked Files and Folders in Box Drive

    I'd like to be able to have a folder linked to other folders with the same file so the file can be updated from either location.

    For example, there are Client 1 and Client 2 folders each having the same Folder A within them. In Folder A would be File B and if you update File B by going through Client 1 folder, it would be updated the same as if you went through Client 2 folder.

  20. show full details of a file when integrated in finder

    when viewing a file in a finder window (mac) I cannot view the details such as dimensions of an image. this is an extremely valuable feature for designers and developers using box to store their files.
