  1. make linked files visible in Finder on desktop

    Linked files are only visible in the web version of Box, and not visible on the desktop with Box Drive. This defeats the purpose of having linked files since the majority of users are accessing Box through Box Drive on their desktop. Please update!!!

  2. Uploading files with exactly the same hash value on BoxDrive should not be recorded as a 'copy' in the user activity report

    If I upload a new file on Box Drive and then upload the same file (with the same hash value) again, the server copies the first uploaded file to reduce load and the user activity report records it as a copy. Even if these two file names are different!
    In this case, if I have a workflow triggered by 'upload' in Box Relay, the trigger may not work because the event is considered a copy.
    This behaviour is a limitation of the product specification, but I would like a fix so that it is treated as an upload.

  3. An option to set a parent folder and all subfolders to "available online only"

    Currently, the default drop down menu allows for "Make available offline". This option applies to all sub-folders as well. This is great. After for working on various projects over many months I forget which projects were set to "Make available offline" and requires a lot of tedious and time consuming digging to find folders that were offline and then turn them off.
    It would be great to have the option for any folder regardless of previous settings to "online only".

  4. Add functionality to view all folders set to "Make available offline"

    I would love to be able to see which folders are currently set to "make available offline". I need free up space regularly.

    Or a feature to see how much space box is taking up on my machine and what folders are using the space. Similar to storage on a Mac.

  5. Forced pop-up dialog with input fields for the download

    There should be a way to force a user to enter e.g. name or e.g. order number (as some kind of log entry) when downloading a file via a public link.

  6. We want to be able to see uploaders' email addresses in box drive.

    We have an Box-powered upload spot on our website that feeds into a Box folder. Clients upload documents to us using this upload, and they are required to add their email address. In the browser version of Box it shows the email address of who uploaded the document in a column titled "Updated". In Box Drive, we can't see these email addresses. It would be very helpful to be able to see these email addresses in the windows file explorer using Box Drive.

  7. Microsoft auto-save to Box for Mac users

    For Mac users, it would be great if Box can be integrated as a storage location within Microsoft applications (eg. PowerPoint, Excel, Word, etc.). For Mac users, the auto-save slider in Microsoft Apps is disabled because the Box storage location is not specified. Please find a solution.

  8. On Mac, Box Drive has problems opening files after install of Box Tools

    I use Box Drive on my Mac. Ever since installing Box Tools, I am having problems opening files. In particular, after a file was recently opened, changed, and closed, the file seems to get "stuck" syncing back to Box. It freezes up and will no longer re-open or finish uploading unless I fully quit Box Drive and restart it. This happens even if I tell it to refresh the folder or wait for an extensive period of time.

    I'm not sure why there is no better way to report a bug, but my "idea" is for this bug to please…

  9. offline files and selective sync

    I would like to see the ability to mark files and folders for local or offline storage. Currently box drive allows for only the folder to be marked offline or downloaded locally. When I don't need to have a file downloaded anymore there is not a way for me to mark them offline. I have tried marking the folder offline but that doesn't work to make the files I want offline. Additionally, this would cause all files that I do want locally to become offline. Dropbox currently has the ability to selectively sync the files and or folders that I…

  10. Box Drive & Box Shield

    Currently Box Shield classifies copy & pasting within Box Drive as downloading which results in a false alarm notification. It would be great to be able to see the difference between moving files and actually downloading files from a Box report.

  11. Issue with File Viewing Recorded as Editing ファイル閲覧が編集として記録される問題

    I would like to request an improvement regarding the issue where simply viewing a file is recorded as editing. Viewing and editing are different activities and should be recorded and displayed separately.

    ファイルを閲覧しただけでも編集者として記録される現象について、改善を希望します。閲覧と編集は異なるアクティビティで、別々に記録・表示されるべきだと考えます。

  12. Show who has locked a file in Box Drive

    In the Webapp you are able to see who has locked a file, in Drive you cannot see this unless you navigate to the web. Heavy Drive users/customers require this information in the Drive UI

    There is no history in box drive search box! Viewed/edited files are even missing in the last open files in word or excel! Why I must enter search criteria again and again? Hire an UX specialist to tell you what to do!

  14. Enabling external links/references in excel workbooks

    In Excel any external references (e.g. in macros or other workbooks) are disabled, for data driven companies who use excel heavily it would be ideal to have these functions available in box drive. Using Box online can be limiting.

  15. prevent file download to local drive for editor

    We would like to have the ability to prevent a user with editor access from being able to download the shared folder content.
    According to https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/13404788095507-Restrict-download-access, it seems not possible.

    Our goals are:
    - Allow them to create files/folder, and to edit them from within the Box drive.
    - Prevent them from downloading the files into their local drive and take it with them.

    As a security measure of data loss prevention.

  16. Please automatically close the tab of the browser we used to log in after completing the login process.

    The login method from Box Drive has been changed to using a web browser.
    Currently, the behavior is that the tab of the web browser used for login authentication remains after login is completed.
    The administrator is troubled by the many inquiries from end users asking if closing this tab will cause any problems.

  17. Better (or customizable) bandwidth limits for wedding media companies

    Better (or more customizable) monthly bandwidth limits and no transfer speed limitations. I run a wedding media company that does about 200TB of bandwidth/year. Coming from Dropbox, I think there is definitely a vacuum in the market for a cloud company to pick up their slack, especially for wedding producers...

  18. BoxDrive behavior of files with the “Browser Use Only” classification label

    We are considering setting up a "Browser Only" classification label for collaborative editing of Office applications to enforce download restrictions so that collaborative editing is only possible in the browser.
    However, when a user tries to open a file with the "Browser Only" label, the viewer and previewer will not be able to open the file because of the download restriction.
    Also, when opening BoxNote from BoxDrive, you will be redirected to the browser, but Office files must be opened by right-clicking on Box.com and previewing them, and when editing, you must perform online editing.

  19. <About BoxDrive becoming a native application for Windows 11

    <About BoxDrive becoming a native application for Windows 11
    Until Windows 10, when you right-clicked on a content in BoxDrive, the BoxDrive menu was displayed immediately.
    In Windows 11, the menu does not appear immediately, and the menu finally appears after pressing "right click > check other options".
    We are aware that the menu will appear as before just by right-clicking when it is compatible with Windows 11 native apps, so please take action.
    OneDrive and Notepad++ already support native apps, so only BoxDrive is not as convenient as it should be.
    Although it is a small matter, it causes…

  20. hidden files

    We use Box Drive for Backup purposes (company policy dos not allow any other product for that purpose). Would be great to have a possibility to upload also the hidden config files which are marked with a dot in front of the filename (e.g. .abc-config) using macbook.
