  1. Add .dwl files to ignored file type list

    Would really appreciate .dwl files (temporary files created by Autodesk apps) being added to the Ignored file type for syncing in Box Drive. Currently .bak files are there which within Autodesk apps we have the ability to repath anyways. With .dwl files, we have no control... they go in the same folder as the file. They are not always deleted as they should be due to Program crashes and end up cluttering the folders needlessly.

  4. Ability to zoom-in/out by fingers on the touchscreen of my laptop PC.

    My laptop has the touchscreen. It would be useful if I could zoom-in/out files by fingers (pinch-in/out) on the screen. RIght now I have to use the toolbox which is awkard to use by fingers.

  5. Ability to customize promotion settings

    Please add a setting to not show the promotion that appears when users starts Box Drive.
    That promotion can be confusing because it forces the user to see it even if the company does not allow that feature.

  6. Support for MacOS Finder Tags (the colored dots) in Box is Needed

    Under Catalina and before Finder Tags worked the same on Box Drive as they would on a local drive.

    Finder Tags are a significant feature for MacOS users and not having them any more is a problem. Many MacOS users depend on Finder Tags in work flows and losing this feature has broken long established processes to manage files.

  8. Ask users to enter their email address before viewing a file

    Is there is a feature that requests/restricts a person who receives a file link to submit their email address in order to view the file. Sort of a Docsend killer.

  9. Automatically save Box Drive logs

    I want Box Drive logs to be automatically saved in Box.

    Currently, Box Drive logs are deleted by log rotation, and even a customer wants to ask Box to investigate, the logs are no longer left.
    As a result, Box, Inc. sometimes cannot investigate it.

    Because Box recommends an unlimited-capacity digital workplace environment, I think it's nonsense that we lose logs.

    Therefore, I would like to be able to automatically save the Box Drive log to Box as an option.

  10. Box Shutdowns down early during shutdown, so MS Word docs with changes can't be saved if shutdown aborted

    This problem plagues me onace a week or so. When Windows 10 is shutting down, Box Drive shutdowns down early before Windows asks to save opened changed docs - so MS Word docs with changes can't be saved if shutdown aborted. I end up having to save locally, reboot, then put the file into Box, then shutdown a second time. Painful, especially at the end of the day.
    Proposal - work with Microsoft on a way to delay the Box shutdown point - until after the cancel shutdown message occurs...

  11. Ability to control folder actions on Box Drive

    When using box drive, I would like to update the specifications so that control (move / delete) is possible so as to prevent accidentally moving the folder to an unexpected location.

  13. Open multiple tabs

    Multiple tabs. We would like the ability to open different files (which may or may not be in different folders) in a tabed structure so that examining these files or reexamining these files during a discussion of their contents would not require a succession of closing and reopening files. We are proposing a structure similar to the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge tabs.

  14. Date and Time of uploading file on BOX

    Hi! I was faced with the problem of file date uploading on display on BOX.

    I know that usually, BOX shows "Today" or "Yesterday" if the file was uploaded to BOX today or yesterday. It's clear, but, I need to see the exact date displayed with numbers. For example, I want to see that the file was uploaded to BOX "18 of May, 2022" instead of "Today".

    Moreover, I even can't see the time when the file was uploaded to BOX. I work with the client in different time zones (the difference is 10 hrs) and sometimes it is really…

  15. Specify box drive location and cache location

    Enable the option for users to specify Box Drive location.
    Changing it in the registry is way too advanced for most users and easily fixable with a build-in feature.
    Enable the ability to specify Cache location is also a must-have.
    Files flooding my C: drive is annoying to say the least, espacially when working with big files.

  16. View Owner/Creator of Files in Box Drive

    We would like the ability to display accurate information about the Owner/creator of files within Box Drive for Windows. The Owner column in Windows was used prior to our migration to Box to show who originally created the file for a folder all in a single glance. Although Box.com shows the upload history of individual files, it's a manual process of viewing each file-- a pain point-- compared to the table view of File Explorer with the Owner column displaying. Currently, within Box Drive/File Explorer, the Owner column is empty. This would be useful for the users to know who…

  18. Provide appropriate warning before moving a folder to a different owner in Box Drive UI

    In Box Drive, moving folder to a different owner looks like it works (a folder dragged to new Box location in Box Drive/Finder appears in the new location), but it actually fails and an OS notification pops up only briefly. The suggested fix (if the user notices the problem and can find the message about it) is also not ideal -- Box wants you to manually move the folder back yourself, but if you don't see this message right away then you might not remember where you moved it from.

    Ideally, this would warn the user about the change in…

  19. Add account info to Box application window

    One of our users recently asked the following:

    "In the Box drive alert window, the Box Drive Settings gear icon doesn't
    do anything useful. Please add an actual settings window with basic
    information like file space used, buttons for pause/restart syncing, etc.

    The Box Drive window is an alert style window that disappears anytime a
    mouse is clicked or any other window is interacted with. This is the
    case in Windows 7 through Windows 11. It would be better if Box Drive
    had an actual application window like most other apps."

    I know that manual syncing isn't possible yet in…

  20. file transfer status

    One of our users recently asked the following:

    "The Transfers pane in the Box drive alert window rarely shows any file
    names, even when files are actively being transferred. Please change the
    Transfers window so that it shows a rolling list of all transferring and
    recently transferred files and a time remaining estimate. The list
    should be rolling and not clear when the transfers are done. It should
    always be possible to see the last 5-10 files that Box Drive has
    transferred."

    I'm not sure if this is a reasonable request, but thought I'd share it here.
