  1. 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.

  2. More detailed error handling with sync errors

    We have a user who is on Box Drive that has had several sync errors come up on his Box Drive client over the last week, but when he clicks on the info icon next to the s"9 items with sync errors message" it just gives them a generic error message with no details about which files can't be synced or how long they haven't been synced. I don't know if there's an existing solution for this, but thought I'd mention it here.

  3. left navigation not collapsing

    This is a problem on all pages of Box. The left navigation menu is not collapsing and is blocking access to the files in the center console.

  4. improve box drive file listing when navigating to a new folder

    Currently as you navigate Box Drive and hit a new folder there can be a noticeable delay before the content listing of the folder is displayed and for that time (can be several seconds or more) the impression is left that the directory is empty. The user is left trying to determine if they need to wait or if there are actually no files or folders within the folder.

    An improvement would to either maintain a local cache of the folder/file hierarchy and then download the actual file when it's selected for open. Or a predictive recursive tree query when…

  5. Moving from Box Drive now deletes instead of copies

    When moving a file from Box Drive to another volume like your computer, it now removes the file from BOX altogether. Prior to the latest update to the platform, it used to make a copy by default.

    We use BOX as a file server and this opens up the potential for accidental deletion. Making the source folders read-only doesn't work either because we have to be able to edit contents on BOX.

    Can you provide the option in a setting or elsewhere to turn on forced copy by default when dragging files from BOX to another Volume?

  6. Dragging files or folders out of BOX makes a copy

    With the recent update to BOX Drive, when you move something from BOX to your computer it removes it from BOX. It used to make a copy by default. We use BOX as a shared file server and this change allows for accidental deletion.

    Can you please add the ability to make this copy rather than move the file, only when moving out of BOX onto the computer or an outside volume?

  7. Upload In The Order We Added Them + Reorder

    I don't understand why Box Drive decided to upload files in a completely random. Say that I add a number of files, then later add another bulk of files, it will start uploading them or a whole random different selection. Why doesn't it upload them in the order I added them (first come, first serve).

    A bonus would be to reorder your uploads, so if some become more of a priority.

  8. Select Upload Limit, Pause Uploads

    Hello, I have multiple ideas for this relatively limited featured app:

    1. We should be able to select how many items we wish to upload at a time, instead of this default 10 or so at a time. If I've got a busy schedule, I sometimes want to achieve a few uploads at time and then pause (next point).

    2. We should definitely be able to Pause Uploads, Dropbox has it, OneDrive has it, why not Box. For my work, I need my bandwidth quite often, so currently the only way of "pausing" is closing the app completely, and not knowing whether…

  10. Overview of Synced Folders

    It would be useful to be able to see all the folders you’ve synced to your hard drive.

    I often have to make large graphics files available offline so I can work on them. I’m typically working across 40+ projects with other people picking things up at various points, so it’s easy to lose track of what’s still active. As such, hard drive space fills up.

    Currently, managing files requires hunting through massive directory trees for anything that has a little green tick. Or the less labour intensive but equally daunting option of ‘going nuclear’ and unsyncing everything and starting…

  11. Ability to view the contents of the login page on the login screen on Box Drive

    Currently, the login page settings that exist in the tenant settings are only visible in the web browser, not in Box Drive.
    Since many of our tenants use Box Drive, we would like to display the contents of the login page on the login screen on Box Drive as well.

    (In Japanese)
    現在、テナント設定に存在するログインページ設定は、Webブラウザ上でのみ表示され、Box Driveには表示されません。
    我々のテナントではBox Driveを利用しているユーザが多いため、Box Drive上のログイン画面にもログインページの内容を表示したい。

  13. Box drive hide folders

    With Box Drive ALL my folders are displayed on my desktop. While I like having access to them all without having to sync them, I would like a feature which would allow me to hide the folders I am not currently using. The Box Sync environment, which only showed those folders that I was currently working in (and had synced), was a much more efficient solution.

  17. Ability to perform file operation through directory command prompt

    File operation by operating by command prompt.
    Is there any way to operate the files and metadatas from the pointed directory?
    As far as I heard from SE, the answer was "no".
    For example, extract all the metadata in each filed from the pointed filename expantion and from the pointed directory by one command.
    It will be great if we could use this Box Drive by operating like linux or command prompt.

  18. Hide/restrict files from view in a shared folder

    I would love to see the ability to hide/restrict viewing options for a single file/item within a Box folder.

    For example, only 3 people would need to be able to view and edit this file although 20 people may have access to the shared folder itself. The other 17 individuals would not know the file is listed there because they do not have viewing access.

    This would help reduce the need to save that file's information someplace separate from the rest of the pertinent folder information.

  20. Fix Box Drive icon overlay conflict on Microsoft documents

    On behalf of Blackstone:

    Content that is on user's machine/desktop is showing red lock icons overlaying the icon of the file type, on content that has, but also has NEVER been in Box

    Please follow modern Microsoft guidance and not use legacy integrations to Windows. The existing implementation is conflicting with our usage of OneDrive.
