  1. Box Drive support for Tags (Windows)

    We would like to be able to use tags in Box Drive in order to better sort/filter/search for specific information that is used company-wide (either the tags field in MS Office files or a Box-specific tag). I see several requests for this feature from Mac users, but not much reference for Windows users.

    Thanks...

  2. Box Drive can no longer "open on box.com" on Mac

    Previously on Box Drive you could right click on a file and choose to be taken to its location on box.com.

    Since the latest Mac, the functionality has disappeared, which affects the ease of using integrations with box.

  3. Limit bandwidth for disk usage

    Limit bandwidth for disk usage - currently, this goes to 100% on my machine, locking up the machine in effect.

  5. Allow administrators the ability to change the timing threshold of the Box Drive Authentication Token

    It would be helpful for admins to be able to change the timeframe for which the Box Drive authentication token lasts. We have users who have a hard time renewing their passwords in a timely manner and this is the biggest avenue they have to keep them working because the token doesn't seem to expire in a more timely manner. Or have a way to remotely sign a user out of all box applications on their devices when needed.

  6. Multiple Uploads failed - please solve that

    Every day I get a message that multiple uploads failed due to file type.
    But I have to find all of these manually.
    Please make a button to isolate all those files in a local folder, to stop the messages from coming, and allow the user to sort those out.

  7. Box passwords user experience

    Two issues I'd like to highlight that is significantly making the Box user experience for my users (and me) extremely frustrating.

    1) Box Drive sign in experience
    When my users try to sign into Box Drive and input incorrect passwords multiple times and keep trying, they get a captcha response requirement to continue trying. It's simply broken. It requires images to be selected but this process always gets stuck in an endless loop. I can confirm this from dealing with this on multiple systems running Box Drive and 100% of the time it got stuck in a loop. This captcha…

  8. Hide thumbnails in previewing a doc

    I would like the opportunity to hide the thumbnails that appear on the left side of the screen when I preview the document. I would love to be able to have more real estate to look at the doc itself. There may be a time when it might be important to have those thumbnails come back, so a way to hide and unhide it would be great.

  11. Mapping Box Location to Windows Explorer

    Please add a way to map the Box location in my favorite and quick access folder in my Windows Explorer. The objective is to save new documents that I am creating directly on box, instead of saving them locally and then upload to box.

  12. How can I find out how much storage I've used, and how much I have left?

    Why is there now place that shows "You've used up this much of your storage"?, or even, "You have this much storage space left...." It's stupid to have to guess how much I have, hoping if I upload a folder it'll make it.

  13. box drive

    Preemptively cache your folder directories.
    Some departments have a large volume of folders and files. During first time of loading a folder, the contents appear blank and after 5 seconds content shows up. Sometimes a person needs to go manually refresh the folder list to see the contents. This gives the first impression that Box Drive is slow. Is there a way to preemptively cache the folder directories? We do not mark any contents available offline and would like to keep it that way. Once the folder is listed the first time, all future browsing of the folder is fast.

  15. Native Finder-search (MacOS) is mandatory

    from your own web-page:
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043695774-Mac-Specific-Known-Issues-for-Box-Drive

    "Mac search tools, such as Spotlight, Finder search, tags , do not return search results from Box Drive. Use Box Drive's search functionality instead."

    Box Drive is not fit for purpose, since it forces every single file-search in the user's home directory to be executed twice:


    • once in the home directory

    • then again using Box spotlight search

    • then put the 2 Finder windows side by side and do a manual inventory - unbelievable

    I frequently search my home directory. The poor search functionality is a major miss, affects my work badly

    Please look to…

  16. open location

    When I copy or move an item, usually I just want to go to the location where the file has now been copied or moved to. Currently, the only option is to show file or close. If I show file, I have to wait for it to load before I can click the cross and then be in the location I want to be in. If the file is large, sometimes I have to wait for ages.

    I envisage something in Box like when you right click something on your desktop and it says "Open file location"

  18. Provide a FUSE (Filesystem in userspace) handler for Box Linux and other *nix support

    Linux, and other operating systems, have a mechanism for vendors to provide transparent filesystem access to esoteric file storage mechanisms in userspace, without the need to write a kernel module using "FUSE" (Filesystem in Userspace).

    Box would only need to write a FUSE handler, and then that'd open up access to a lot of *nixes.

  20. Syncing bookmarks and Windows shortcuts between Box Drive and online.

    To better organize my personal Box files and share with teams, I've saved my files in the team folder and used a Windows shortcut (in Box Drive) in my personal Box folder to link files/folders elsewhere on Box. Box Drive doesn't sync Window's shortcuts so these links are lost when working online. The workaround online is to use the bookmark function, using file/folder URLs to create shortcuts. It would be great if bookmarks or window's shortcuts synced between online and Box Drive modes. At the moment I'm having to bookmark online and shortcut on Drive to link up files and…
