  1. Prevent items with restricted movement from being moved on the Box Drive display

    If "Do not allow ownership of content to be transfered to external users" is enabled in the tenant settings, content cannot be moved to external tenants by users other than the administrator.

    However, when content is moved in Box Drive, although it is not actually moved, it appears on the display as if it is stored in the destination folder, and it does not return to the original folder until the user logs out/logs back in to Box Drive.

    Content whose movement is restricted by Classification Policies will immediately return to the folder in which it was originally stored, both…

  2. Prevent desktop box folder deletion

    Please create a way to globally disable users the ability to delete folders from their desktop with Box Drive.

    They are under the impression that if they hit "delete" on the folders they are removed from the Projects. This in turn has caused a lot of chaos from team members deleting the entire Project folders instead of going to the Box website and revoking their permissions.

    No amount of training we try do it can solve this with a company our size.

    Team members are deleting terabytes of data and it's exhausting trying to recover all this data.

  4. Need for Retaining and Utilizing EXIF Data when Uploading Photos to box.com and Box Drive

    I have been managing my photos on my PC and I'm considering migrating them to Box for better organization and accessibility. However, I've encountered a significant obstacle - the important EXIF data associated with my photos, such as the capture date and time, is lost once the photos are saved in a Box folder. This issue persists whether I upload the photos directly from the browser or through other methods.

    I'm using Box Drive on Windows, and I've noticed that the property values also disappear in Explorer. Interestingly, when I moved the same file out of Box Drive, the property…

  5. Allow Us To Move Collaborator Folders to a sub-folder without removing the permissions

    When a user shares a folder with us it sits in our Root folder. Can these show up in a Shared folder to save our Root folder having a load of odd name folders. We believe you can do this in Dropbox.

    ideally we need to be able to change the folder name at our end too without amending it at the user end.

  7. Box for Outlook: would be great if you could modify the attachment file name as you drop into Box.

    Let's enable modifying the file name of the attachment in Outlook as it's saved into Box drop. Otherwise, I have to simply use Save As functionality in Outlook to modify the file name and get it to the right customer folder in Box. We use specific naming conventions to save files into customer folders. The document's file name needs to reflect the content. Without this detail, we have to wade through lots of documents in order to find what we need.

  8. Back up desktop and documents folder

    It would be really useful if there was an option within box drive that would sync the users desktop documents and perhaps download folder to a folder within box.

    I know users could just save the files on to box drive but that doesn't always happen (temp needed files etc) this would act as an almost auto back up feature.

  9. Limit office files (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) to be open through their corresponding web version

    Limit office files (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) to be open through their corresponding web version. That is, only allowing these office files to be opened only through Word Online, Excel Online, etc. As of right now, these files are able to be opened through Google Docs and Google sheets, which alters the formatting of their original files.

  10. Ability to save alphabetical sorting

    Dennis Bartch
    1 year ago
    Platform: Windows 10 Enterprise v. 20H2

    Browser: Chrome v. 94.0.4606.71 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    Does anyone know if there a a way to save my "Files and Folders" sorting preference? I want to retain sort by "Name, ascending" as the default, but cannot find anywhere to save it, so every time I navigate away from a folder and return to it, I have to re-sort by name again. The default seems to be "Updated, descending."

  11. Allow Document Date in the Home Page Column name and to sort in chronological order

    The ability to add the document date and sort by this will be so helpful. Currently I am naming all documents to include the date to allow to sort chronologically. This feature will be great especially to ensure order of documents and their relevance.

  12. Document Relationships

    It would be great if document relationships can be created. E.g Email and their corresponding attachments. Saving Primary document and being able to relate two or more others as linked.
    Document relationships will help to avoid needing to make folders to keep related documents together.

  13. Survey Making Function on Box

    Hello, It would be great to be able to create surveys and receive survey results using Box. That could be through an integration with Google Forms. It would be helpful to be able to create a Google Form within Box and then be able to download the results of the survey into a Spreadsheet also created or saved on Box. Thanks!

  14. Make an option to turn off the warning "Confirm Removal From This Mac"

    I drag-and-drop files onto Box all day long, and every file I move I get the warning "Confirm Removal From This Mac". It would be nice to have the option to turn this warning off.

  15. Box Drive Moving a Folder Off of Drive Fully Deletes it From Box for Mac FPE Users, Folder Lock API Enhancements

    For PC Users on Drive (and historically for Mac users), when you move a folder from Box Drive onto your Desktop, it simply makes a copy of that folder and leaves the original in Box.
    However, for Mac Users on the new FPE version of Box Drive, if they move a folder from Drive onto the Desktop, it fully deletes the folder from Box.
    For example, I am an Editor on a Marketing Folder that's owned by the IT Service Account and shared with hundreds of colleagues. I accidentally move this folder from Box Drive onto my desktop (easy mistake…

    Thank you for the suggestion. We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap. 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!

  17. Allow Users to 'Remove' all files from their BOX Drive as a right-click command

    It would be nice, instead of logging out of BOX Drive on my personal computer to 'remove' all files on my personal device (so anything that was cached or downloaded). Instead of having to 'log out' of the BOX drive app.

  20. Folder-level "custom terms of service"

    Is it possible to only setup "Custom Terms of service" on specific sub-folders for external collaborators? Or is this setting only account-wide??

    Use case:

    We have a dataroom set up, and some external collaborators have problems accessing the "login custom terms of service" NDA and logging into Box. The notification emails from the system are often sent to their spam folder.

    We can send an NDA via the "e-sign" feature, but don't want our external collaborators to then have to accept it a 2nd time when they come to a (separate, for NDA e-signers) dataroom folders.

    Can we setup a…
