  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Enhanced Lock/Unlock on Box Drive for CAD files

    I hope the Enhanced lock/unlock experience, which is currently only available for Office files, be made available for CAD files and others as well.

    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!

  6. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Gap in deleting a file being locked between WebApp and Box Drive

    In WebApp, collaborators don't have trash menu against the locked file, meaning collaboration cannot delete it during being locked. However, they are able to remove the locked file from their drive and leave an error in problem items. This deletion can only be done within Box Drive and the file isn't actually deleted. After removing the file lock, Box Drive will make it effective on Box. This can lead the users to create a same item before removing the file lock, and edit.

  10. Ability to to delete saved previous versions

    I am burning through storage because Box is saving every version of a file I am working on. There is currently no easy way to cut down and delete all previous versions of a file, and going through one by one is time consuming (and after I did, did not seem to decrease the folder size anyways). It would be awesome if there was a way to delete all previous versions of a file and only keep the most recent one.

  11. Syncing files and having them download to devices automatically

    Create a setting in Box Drive so that files, once updated, automatically sync and download to all devices for use offline. Now, we have to designate each folder for "use offline." Why not have a setting that allows us to make that the default (so it functions like Box Sync)? As it now stands, I'd have to know in advance which files I might use on a flight, if I'm traveling with a different computer. That's a pain.

  12. User logged in local value

    Feature Request: A local value that can be read to determine if a user is logged into Box Drive.

    This would be useful for launching custom workflows depending on if the user is logged in or not.

  13. bulk filename change

    Add a “bulk change” features, such as:

    For all files edited after 1/1/2011 in "Customers" folder,
    if the filename begins with “11.” “12.” “22.” “23.” etc.,
    then change filename to begin with “2011.” “2012.” “2022.” “2023.” etc.

  14. View right holder to download the watermarked files from box drive.

    that way, people with view right do not need to go box.com website and download each file.
    + it will be great if they could download including folder trees with watermarked files(Pdf, ppt, excel etc).
    Take this as consideration
    best,

  15. Easier access to Box.com versus local box folder from the box menu

    I use a mac. To go to a folder, I can click the box icon on my menu bar and there is the folder icon. But, to go to box notes (very popular with my team) or box.com, I must click down into the box settings. Please bring box.com up to the level of the box folder in your menu.

  16. Sort Field Preference in Settings

    My files and folders are all indexed with numbers. It would be helpful to always sort files and folders by name to keep the indexing order. However, Box keeps sorting by the "Updated" field, which completely messes up the indexing order. Is it possible to have a Sort Preferences in Settings so one could select which field should be the default for sorting?

    Thanks.

  17. Viewing and Downloading EPUB files

    As outlined in Case # 2783413
    We were unable to share an link to an EPUB which had watermarking embedded in the file.
    Workarounds included zipping up the EPUB first.
    It would be wonderful to get full EPUB support where you can view the EPUB (ie see the cover image, and even the contents of the EPUB book and allow anyone with the link to download the file.

    As was discovered in the case mentioned above, it turns out some EPUBs can at least be downloaded if they didn't contain watermarking. Publishers put in watermarking so removing these is not…

  18. Ability to set an optional time for lock files .

    I want to set the lock time to any desired time, not preset such as 5 minutes or 15 minutes.
    Ability to specify presets is useful, but optional time settings are also needed.

  19. Show File Quantity in Grid Mode

    When looking at your folders in grid mode, it would be nice to see the quantity of files in the folder without having to open the folder and select all files or going into list mode. I think it used to be like this but last time I looked I couldn't see the file quantities and it was a cumbersome process for me to figure out the quantity.
