  2. Using folder hierarchy to reduce number of shared folders

    It would be great if Box could group by the parent folder if a user is shared more folders from the same parent folder example if i had the following folders


    • Projects
      -> Project A
      -> Project B
      -> Project C

    If I shared Project A and Project C with a user, it would be better if they saw the following


    • Projects
      -> Project A
      -> Project C

    However if i just share Project A then they would only see this.

    This would save having a huge number of folders in the Root of each users account.

    Thanks

  3. Please add popup when adding or moving a file from local to Box

    We can easily add or move file from local storage to Box drive or browser.
    However, box does not prompt any popup when we add or move file.

    It may cause miss operation.
    So, Please add popup when add or movefile.

  4. not available offline

    As an admin, Id like to mark some folders as never available offline. We have several folders with several terabytes of data and inadvertently users have started downloading the entire folder.
    One found out when his hard drive was almost full, the other was caught by security looking at the massive downloads. The data is available to all but shouldn't be copied locally.

  5. Incorrect message when upload file size exceeded

    I (wojciech.baranski@pl.ibm.com) have created a folder - the folder name is "ZUS_STATS". This folder has my (IBM) corporate Box account file size limit, which is 32GB. This filder is shared with end customer, who hasn't an enterprise account on Box. The customer tries to upload a file, which is larger than this limit. Obvously the end customer gets an error, however this error message is incorrect and misleading - it indicates, that the limit is 250MB instead of 32GB. The error says:

    original message in polish:

  6. From Box Drive experience side, Showing who is locking.

    From Box Drive experience side, Showing who is locking.
    Not from web app side. Would like to show the username who has locked the file on Box Drive icon. ex. a mouse over and comes up the username who locked that file.

  8. ACCESS MULTIPLE WORKSPACES ON BOX DESKTOP DRIVE

    Hi,

    I run a small agency and more clients are asking me to work directly in their Box server. The problem is that I can't log into several different Box workspaces on the Desktop App (like you can in Slack for example). Please help! I may have to go back to Dropbox for this reason.

  9. Folder Setting Limitations - Box Drive

    We have folders for each office where they store their active and archived (old) jobs. These folders can can contain many hundreds of job folders (sub folders to the parent folder) representing hundreds of GB and even over TB in some cases of data. It is way too easy for users to simply check ‘mark for offline’ in Box drive or attempt to sync the folder in Box Sync.

    When that happens we have custody of data issue for a ton of files. Further it allows people to easily steal data in bulk. Just in the past week we have…

  10. Box Drive compatibility with MacOS Big Sur

    It appears Box Drive uses a legacy extension no longer supported with the latest MacOS release, Big Sur.

    In addition, the new M1 based machines have been widely applauded for their performance and battery life. I assume this will translate to increased sales.

    So when you do make Box apps Big Sur compatible, I would recommend building a universal app supporting both Intel and Apple Silicon.

  11. My Box Drive application has taken All Or Nothing, to literal.

    I work for a national firm that produces hundreds of work folders daily, in retrospect I am assigned to 4 weekly. The Sync option through the Box Sync application allowed me and other users access to specific files on their laptops without being overwhelmed by the company's very long list. Assigned folders were Synced and then managed on laptops using the File Explorer. Which made working with these files very efficient.

    Currently, there is no option for me to selectively access my assignment folders on my laptop without searching for them specifically in the growing listing of company-wide folders.

    Is…

  12. Open internet shortcut files in the device browser

    In Dropbox, when tapping on an internet shortcut file it would open up the link in the device's default browser. In Box it can't open it at all. Would be nice if it did!

  13. Windows 10 on ARM Support for Box Drive

    Currently, Box Drive does not function on devices running Windows 10 on ARM.

    ARM-based PCs are already taking over the Apple desktop and laptop ecosystem. Following that trend, Windows on ARM will likely become an increasingly important OS in the marketplace. Box Drive is an essential app for many Box users on Windows, and support will be necessary as the world migrates to ARM-based PCs.

  14. sync to a RAID

    Our global video team need a cloud solution that can be saved to our external RAIDs. We need to store and access TB's of footage. Desktop hard drives are no large enough.

    We could potentially use the older 'Box sync', but we understand that it is due to be phased out, and it does not support selective offline/online syncing, which we need.

  15. Box Drive: Display pop up warning when copy / move large number of items

    Just like below warning pop-up displayed in WebApp, Box Drive shall pop up a warning to let the user know when large number of files / folders are going to be copied / moved.  (also to prevent accidental copies / moves)

    Copy Items

    (!) This operation is not immediate and may take some time.

    You are about to copy 9000 items to the folder 'Project Folder 01'. Due to the large number of items, this operation may take up to several hours to complete. During this operation, content within this folder may not be available for access. Do you want…

  16. Upgrade Box Drive-G Drive 100 MB Limit Size Limitation

    I have a ticket number - #2250687 that has been closed because we need a feature request. When a file is created in Google Docs via Box, most of our users at Apeel keep having issues making changes, saving, sharing or downloading files.
    What happens is Google makes edits to the file, the file grows larger than 100 MB, Google then fails to send those changes to Box. While this scenario is not desired it is technically expected; because of the Google error, Box is unable to receive new information and update the file size or content.

    Please upgrade your…

  17. Keep third party's login token or credentials when logging out from Box Drive

    Users need to log in to a web gateway before logging in to Box Drive.

    If they log out, they need to login to the gateway again.

    In WebApp, they don’t need to re-login the gateway after logging out from Box.

    Therefore, Box should have any way to prevent this.

  18. Better reporting / auditing of folders marked for offline use

    Have better audit trails around the 'marked for offline use' feature. Be able to generate reports such as all the folders marked for offline use for a user and when they were marked for off line use (or 'umarked').

  19. Add image/file preview function via Mac QuickLook feature/Ability to move Box folder to an external drive

    As creative professionals, my colleague and I intended to use Box to share/collaborate. Disappointed to learn that we cannot use Apple's QuickLook feature to quickly peruse our large image libraries nor can we preview documents (Word, Excel, PPT, PDF, etc). This is a feature every creative uses because it enables us to quickly get to what we need without having to open up countless files which takes a lot of time. Additionally, because we cannot preview files, we thought sync'ing our files to our local hard drives would be the answer but I just learned that I cannot move my…

  20. "Your Download is In Progress" pop-up confuses clients

    When a client of ours who is not a Box user downloads a file, a pop-up which says "Your Download is In Progress" appears. The issue is that the pop-up looks like there are only three courses of action, “sign up”, “log in”, or “x” out. Many of our clients have not realized that there is a fourth option, which is just wait for the download. This has caused confusion time and time again across different clients at different times. These are sophisticated users, and this creates serious client issues. Can you please remove the sign up and login options.…
