  1. Get separate (mapped) shared links for a large number of files under a shared folder

    I am trying to generate separate shared links for a large number of files (1000+) under a folder, and map them to their original file name, so I can share these files separately.

    But we can only do that either by the whole folder (not what we want), or by selecting files one by one (too time-consuming).

    We hope there will be a function when you share a folder, we can also have the option to generate separate share links for each of the files under the folder, and a corresponding mapping file is generated automatically.

  2. left navigation not collapsing

    This is a problem on all pages of Box. The left navigation menu is not collapsing and is blocking access to the files in the center console.

  3. Updates on the lock functionality after Save as

    I want the lock to come off properly after Save As.(BoxDrive)

    If you save a file to a folder in Box Drive using "Save As" in the Office app and then close the app immediately, the newly created file will remain locked.
    If I close the app immediately, the newly created file will remain locked.
    The lock is not automatically removed when the application is closed.

    After saving the file, other users are not able to edit the file, and this is interfering with my work. I would like to see this fixed.

    名前をつけて保存後にロックが正常に外れるようにして欲しい(BoxDrive)

    Officeアプリの「名前を付けて保存」でBox Driveのフォルダにファイルを保存し、
    すぐにアプリを閉じると、新しく作成されたファイルにロックが残ってしまいます。
    アプリを閉じても自動的には解除されません。
    保存後に他のユーザーがファイルを編集することが出来ず業務に支障をきたしているため
    修正をして欲しいです。

  4. UI enhancement - View full file names

    It is frustrating that I can't read the full file name when looking at box online, I cannot adjust the column widths with the file information and if I hover over the file name it still does not show me the file name. Any one of those options would be useful.

  5. Allow Marking Folders as "Move Locked" To Prevent Users From Moving Certain Folders Regardless Of Permissions

    Our admins are constantly dealing with users who accidentally drag and drop folders into other folders. This can have a big impact across our org, especially when a high level folder that's shared across the company is moved. Here's a common use case:

    We have a top level Projects folder. That folder contains a subfolder for every organization we do business with. Those Organization folders then contain subfolders for individual projects. We'd like to be able to mark the Organization level folders as Move Locked so that our users don't accidentally move folders from one Organization into another. This happens…

    Thank you for the suggestion. Box currently offers the ability to lock folders using the folder lock API - https://developer.box.com/reference/post-folder-locks/


    We do not have a feature on our roadmap to expose this functionality from Box Drive. We will place this in our backlog as we continue evaluating ideas to improve Box Drive.

    Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!


  6. improve box drive file listing when navigating to a new folder

    Currently as you navigate Box Drive and hit a new folder there can be a noticeable delay before the content listing of the folder is displayed and for that time (can be several seconds or more) the impression is left that the directory is empty. The user is left trying to determine if they need to wait or if there are actually no files or folders within the folder.

    An improvement would to either maintain a local cache of the folder/file hierarchy and then download the actual file when it's selected for open. Or a predictive recursive tree query when…

  7. Upload In The Order We Added Them + Reorder

    I don't understand why Box Drive decided to upload files in a completely random. Say that I add a number of files, then later add another bulk of files, it will start uploading them or a whole random different selection. Why doesn't it upload them in the order I added them (first come, first serve).

    A bonus would be to reorder your uploads, so if some become more of a priority.

  9. Overview of Synced Folders

    It would be useful to be able to see all the folders you’ve synced to your hard drive.

    I often have to make large graphics files available offline so I can work on them. I’m typically working across 40+ projects with other people picking things up at various points, so it’s easy to lose track of what’s still active. As such, hard drive space fills up.

    Currently, managing files requires hunting through massive directory trees for anything that has a little green tick. Or the less labour intensive but equally daunting option of ‘going nuclear’ and unsyncing everything and starting…

  10. Add configuration option to hide the right-hand sidebar automatically

    When a file is opened, the right-hand sidebar is open by default. My preference is to have it closed, so I must close it each time. Please add a configuration option that would allow for users to set that sidebar closed at startup by default.

  12. Box drive hide folders

    With Box Drive ALL my folders are displayed on my desktop. While I like having access to them all without having to sync them, I would like a feature which would allow me to hide the folders I am not currently using. The Box Sync environment, which only showed those folders that I was currently working in (and had synced), was a much more efficient solution.

  16. Ability to perform file operation through directory command prompt

    File operation by operating by command prompt.
    Is there any way to operate the files and metadatas from the pointed directory?
    As far as I heard from SE, the answer was "no".
    For example, extract all the metadata in each filed from the pointed filename expantion and from the pointed directory by one command.
    It will be great if we could use this Box Drive by operating like linux or command prompt.

  17. Hide/restrict files from view in a shared folder

    I would love to see the ability to hide/restrict viewing options for a single file/item within a Box folder.

    For example, only 3 people would need to be able to view and edit this file although 20 people may have access to the shared folder itself. The other 17 individuals would not know the file is listed there because they do not have viewing access.

    This would help reduce the need to save that file's information someplace separate from the rest of the pertinent folder information.

  19. Box Drive Path in MacOS

    Now I am updating my MacOS. According to "https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/4407737091219-Using-Box-Drive-on-macOS-File-Provider-Extension-FPE-mode", my box path was changed from "~/Box" to "~/Library/CloudStorage/Box-Box". It is inconvenient to search files in my editor because the files are located far away from my home directory. Can I fix this issue? Dropbox is still located "~/Dropbox".

  20. Ability to view file menu without zooming out

    In order to see the entire "More options" menu for a specific file, I need to ZOOM OUT. It cuts off even on a larger monitor/resolution at 100%.

    If I could attach an image to show an example, I would.
