  1. Auto-creation of Folder Tree through Box for Salesforce

    To create a new workspace through the VisualForce window for Box in Salesforce, you click a button. I'd like to be able to set a folder tree structure through the Box Settings in Salesforce so that every time I click that button, Box automatically makes the same folder tree structure for every new workspace.

  2. Sharing File paths with others in my organization on box drive

    Before my company switched to box we had a mac server. When directing people to files on this server we used a utility called PathSnagger where it copied the file path which you could then email to someone and it would become a clickable hyperlink. When you click it, it took you directly to that location on the server. It was great to be able to do this.

    With box, we cannot do that any longer with this utility because it copies the fully qualified path to your local computer. file:///Users/[username]/Library/CloudStorage/Box/[folder name]/[file or folder name] and since the recipient is…

  3. Ability to Change Sort Order

    I'd like to be able to switch the sort order of folders to descending so I don't have to keep making multiple clicks each time I'm in and out of folders. The default is from oldest to newest, and I'd like to be able to reverse that and keep that as a preference.

  4. Enhanced Locking Experience on Box Drive for Mac

    With Enhanced Locking on Box Drive now launched for Windows (https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360063653693-Box-Drive-v2-21-Release-Notes), it'll be great to have the same experience, i.e. opening a file will prompt the user to lock the file and auto-unlock the file when closing the file, for Mac users.

    This way all users, no matter what OS they use, can have the same Enhanced Locking experience when working with files via Box Drive.

  5. Alert on folder names not allowed in Box web

    Box Drive will alert when a folder name isn't valid. Would be nice that there would be a way to not allow folder names in Box web when Box Drive doesn't support it.

  7. Ability to retain BoxDrive logs after logout/login.

    I'd like BoxDrive logs to be retained after logout/login.

    I would like to be able to get the log before I log out even if I have logged out of BoxDrive.
    If you want to investigate the logs due to unexpected movement or problems, it will be difficult to investigate afterwards if you log out of the BoxDrive once for data safety and other reasons.
    We want to prevent this from preventing us from identifying the cause of the problem.

    BoxDriveのログをログアウト/ログイン後も保持されるようにして欲しい

    BoxDriveログアウトした場合でもログアウト前のログを取得できるようにして欲しい。
    予期せぬ動きによりログを調査したい場合、データの安全などを考えてBoxDrive から一度ログアウトしてしまうとその後の調査が困難となります。
    これにより原因が特定できないことを防ぎたいです。

    Thanks for the suggestion! We are looking at how to improve content sprawl on Drive. We will be considering Collections as a possible path (among other options), but don’t have a change planned in the near-term.

  9. Native searching in Box on Windows 10

    Previously, you were able to search natively using Box Drive and Box Sync on Windows 7. Windows 10 has been out for a good amount of time now and since Box had an update that removed Box Sync in favor of the Box Drive application, it has become much more difficult to search through thousands of files using the Ctrl+Shift+Alt+B shortcut as this panel does not show as many results as compared to previous versions of Box. I would like to see a feature in Box that will let me search through all my files in Box through File Explorer.

  10. Show appropriate message when user does not have permission

    When I try to access a Box link for which I don't have access, it displays a message that
    "We can't seem to find the page you are looking for"

    Instead, it would be great to display a message directly stating that you don't have permission to view the page and also provide an option to request permission directly from the screen. Also, it would be great to provide a list of users who can provide access to that folder.

  13. Box Drive Security - Utilize MFA/ Enforce connection to specific network

    For several reasons having our staff use Box Drive to access their files is the most helpful for our office. However it would be great if some additional security features could be added to Drive such as requiring the user be connected to specific network or utilize an MFA process. We currently have a vpn requirement setup to access the Box web app through our Okta service but this doesnt work as well with Drive since it caches the user credentials.

  14. Enhance file storage location for Box Drive

    Having files stored in a hidden user cache folder is a very bad design. Leave them in the folder where they "physically" are, instead, just as Box sync, Dropbox, Mega, and others do.

    Plus, let me choose where the app installs in and which folders I want to keep synced. As is it now, Box Drive has a needlessly redundant mechanic, eats up space on the system drive, and give no control to users.

    I uninstall the app until these problems are addressed.

  15. Open file from UI Elements without approval

    Ability to open a file from UI Elements Open With with Box Edit without being prompted to Approve/Deny to proceed.

    Currently, every time a file is opened from UI Elements, Box Edit displays the prompt and asks the user to Approve/Deny before the user can start locally opening and editing the file. This adds friction to user experience, and we want the option to not display this prompt and auto-approve the file open from UI Elements

  17. Bring back home directory "mountpoint" on the mac

    I don't know if it's just me, or some problem with the privacy etc settings that have been a moving target with OSX lately, but after my latest reboot on a fully updated MacBook I was greeted with a popup from Box Drive saying it is now fully MacOS 12 compatible, and lo and behold, my /Users/app/Box directory is gone. I can only access Box files from the Explorer, but not the command line. I never looked into what the Box drive was exactly, a link, a mountpoint, no idea, but I miss it badly.

  18. When using BoxDrive, sometimes the folder or file actually exists, but the message "This folder is empty" is displayed.

    When using BoxDrive, sometimes the folder or file actually exists, but the message "This folder is empty" is displayed.
    When opening a folder, I want you to incorporate the logic to judge whether it is empty and display "This folder is empty" or "Searching". If it says it's empty, you'll be checking Box.com. If it is displayed that it is being searched, a simple refresh is enough, such as transitioning to one parent folder and returning..

  19. Enhancement to file manager in box

    I find box to be a clunky way to collaborate.

    This is a linear search for files. Its not obvious how to sort by file name or date. There has to be a better way to organize files and directories. Microsoft file manager is far superior to this.

  20. Box Drive Internet Explorer embedded authentication

    Box Drive currently utilizes embedded Internet Explorer (IE) for authentication process. Microsoft will end support starting June 15, 2022 for IE. In addition, IE does support all current MFA protocols including FIDO2 (FIDO2 is supported by all other current browsers). We were informed by support that there is no roadmap to correct this and if this is not corrected by June 15, 2022 we will be unable to utilize Box within our organization due to lack of security being presented by Box and it imbedded IE.
