  1. Disable Box Drive for External Users

    Due to support or data privacy concerns, it would be beneficial to have the ability to prevent external users from utilizing Box Drive for files shared with them.

  2. Box Drive app more easily accessible

    It would be convenient to have an install Box link located in the Help menu or my Account icon similar to Dropbox. Even still, when I navigate to the Box App Center I have to go to Box Drive, scroll down to the respective OS and install. It sounds tedious but I needed to install Box and Dropbox on a bunch of computers and was reminded how the Box user experience still doesn't hold up to Dropbox. Neither is perfect and both have great features but I always feel like Box makes me take steps I don't need or doesn't…

  4. Use Relay to copy or move based on filename

    I would love to use box relay for a simple workflow. Is it possible to build a relay workflow that when a file is uploaded to a folder to look for a phrase in the filename and copy/move to a subfolder?

    Ex: Uploaded Filename contains the word "Home" -> Move to Home folder

    or Uploaded Filename contains the word "Work"-> move to work folder

  5. Open in Box Drive

    Ability to click a link that opens the current web box folder on the local Box Drive. This would allow for quick local file editing when you navigated to the folder via web Box.

  6. Unable to move Box files to new hard drive

    I added a larger, secondary drive to my computer, and I'd like to move the Box Drive and off line files to this second drive. This is because the C-drive is 90% full while the new terabyte drive is almost empty. I need to free up space on the C-drive. I was told "customizing the Box Drive folder does not change where Box Drive stores its app data or cached files, including items marked for offline use, so customizing the folder will not save disk space if you relocate the folder to another drive".

  7. Box Drive Apple Finder notification and not just small amber sign for sync failure.

    Users are regularly experiencing issues with multiple file not syncing (incorrect naming or spaces etc) but the only notification to them is a small amber sign on the files syncing which they miss. Please can we have a larger warning in Apples notifications or Finder window similar to a local server error?

  9. Allow Custom Terms of Service feature on specific folders/files

    Currently, this feature is only allowed at the account level, but if an enterprise account serves multiple internal and external user groups that may require different ToS, the feature becomes useless. Please consider a simple feature to allow custom ToS for specific folders or files. Thanks!

  10. Add remote app support functionality like OneDrive is currently offering

    OneDrive now offers support for starting in background for RemoteApp. I tried the same regkey for Box but it didn't work, can the same functionality be added for Box Drive?

  11. 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!!!

  12. 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.

  13. 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".

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
