  2. Allow Us To Move Collaborator Folders to a sub-folder without removing the permissions

    When a user shares a folder with us it sits in our Root folder. Can these show up in a Shared folder to save our Root folder having a load of odd name folders. We believe you can do this in Dropbox.

    ideally we need to be able to change the folder name at our end too without amending it at the user end.

  4. Allow login to Box Drive from different Microsoft account

    It used to be possible to log into Box Drive from my work account whilst logged in as a different Microsoft user on the desktop. This has now stopped working and forces login via my desktop account. This means that Box Drive is now completely useless to me.

  5. Send box drive logs to any email address

    Allow users to send box drive logs to a given email address rather than ONLY to Box Support. Remote debugging is difficult when we can't work directly with our end users' logs.

  6. Allow resizeable/full-screen file search form

    Actually the file search UX in Windows has a design giving priority to form over function, with a concept half-way resembling a tray application notification.

    The problem with that is that the ridiculous window size most of the time trims relatively long file paths to the point of having on-screen indistinguishable search results for different files, if they are at somewhat deepth in the file tree. The smallnes brings also unnecesary scroll, and forces the pains of a self imposed real-state screen-space shortage, more proper of mobile devices but undesirable in desktop.

    Let file search have the first class interface…

  7. Back up desktop and documents folder

    It would be really useful if there was an option within box drive that would sync the users desktop documents and perhaps download folder to a folder within box.

    I know users could just save the files on to box drive but that doesn't always happen (temp needed files etc) this would act as an almost auto back up feature.

  8. Start Box Drive on windows startup instead of user login

    We have a PC that share Box content on our LAN but it's incredible that when the PC restarts Box Drive does not start until a user does login to the pc. For us it mandatory that Box Drive starts on windows startup instead of user login. We tried to schedule the action but Box process fail with an error that windows is not started in interactive mode.

  9. Full Image Thumbnail Option

    For the image thumbnails, is there a way to toggle the view, so that one can see the entire image vs. a cropped version? I've noticed a recent change where all thumbnails are cropped, and in order to view the full image you need to click to open each individual file, which is a less efficient browsing method. Is it possible to return to the previous viewing option to see the full image within each thumbnail?

  10. Please add Password Protection as a FREE feature

    It's just a disappointmet to have password protection of your files as a paid feature. For me it's a deal breaker...

  11. Two User accounts on same Windows 10 computer

    There should be a possibility that two users on the same windows 10 computer, each user separately logging into his/her own windows account, could each log into his/her own box account and use box drive. BoxDrive is much more convenient that to go via the browser. This seems not possible now.
    Additionally it is annoying that the the box drive shows up for login when the second user enters the windows account, and if startup of box is switched off for that user, then it is also switched off for the main user (the admin user who has made the…

  12. Order Items in Collections Manually

  13. Add Ability to view Overflow Files in Box

    It would be really helpful and can save us alot time if we are able to view the actual Overflow interaction flows in Box. That way we can provide comments and feedbacks on the file. Currently, we can only comment on exported PDF's since Overflow is not supported and can't be viewed.

  14. Improvement to display a pop-up message when a locked file is opened as read-only

    When a locked file is opened in BoxDrive, there are some cases where the user does not realize that the file is read-only and updates the file.
    We are aware that the pop-up message can be displayed by enabling the auto-lock option or the lock at prompt option, but this option is limited to Office files only.
    We would like to improve the functionality so that all users and all files will have a pop-up message confirming that the file is locked and opened as read-only, even if this option is not enabled.

    (In Japanese)
    <ロックされたファイルが読み取り専用で開かれる際、ポップアップメッセージを表示してほしい>
    BoxDriveでロックされたファイルを開く際、読み取り専用であることに気がつかずファイルを更新してしまうケースが発生しています。
    自動ロックのオプションまたはプロンプトによるロックのオプションを有効にすることでポップアップメッセージが表示されることは認識していますが、こちらのオプションはOfficeファイル限定となっています。
    こちらのオプションを有効にしていなくても全ユーザーとすべてのファイルに対して、ファイルがロックされているため読み取り専用として開かれていることが確認できるポップアップメッセージが表示されるよう機能の改善を希望します。

  15. Box Drive specification improvement request

    Box Drive is downloading a large amount of event streams, which can overwhelm company's network bandwidth. Due to the network bandwidth pressure, the business other than Box has been affected, so please take measures.
    Here are the details:

    Box Drive is likely retrieving folder and file events that the logged-in user has access to, but is aware that there may be a large number of event downloads in the following cases, for example:.
    ・A specific user performs bulk operations on a folder in which many users are collaborating. (All events are downloaded to Box Drives of all collaboration users)

  16. Bookmarks to be synchronized with BoxDrive/BoxSyn

    Bookmarks created "online" are not synchronized to be visible by the teams using BoxDrive or BoxSync. Also the other way round.

    Our teams are bookmarking many external web sheets or other box folder locations to navigate and support each other, but the links are not visible for all the others.

    With that knowledge, the usage of bookmarks does not work in a global team.

    Request: Please synchronize bookmarks in all directions, as we do with all other files!

  17. Find the new place for getting a link to a file - Box Share

    The pop-up menu in Explorer doesn't have "Box" anymore. Instead, there is a "Share" item on the menu, without indication that it relates to Box. How about renaming it to "Box Share"?

  18. I would like shortcut files created on Box Drive to be reflected on Box Web as well.

    I am aware that shortcut files (.lnk) created in Box Drive (on Explorer) are ignored as a file type and cannot be synchronized.
    However, in my work, I use Box Drive a lot and sometimes create shortcuts, but I can't share them because they are not synced, and they are deleted when I log out of the system.
    I feel this kind of specification is very inconvenient.
    I would love to see you respond to make this happen.

    (Japanese)
    Box Drive(エクスプローラー上)で作成したショートカットファイル(.lnk)は、
    無視されるファイルの種類として対象となっており同期が出来ないことは認識してます。
    しかしながら業務上、Box Driveの利用が多くショートカットの作成することがありますが、
    同期されないことで共有もできず、またログアウトしたことで削除されてしまう。
    このような仕様だと大変不便に感じてます。
    実現に向けて是非対応してほしい。

  19. Allow BoxDrive search to be limited to files and folders names

    The current BoxDrive search will search the contents of the file as well.
    We would like to be able to narrow down the search target when searching, because sometimes it is enough to search only the file name or folder name.
    (In Japanese)
    現在のBoxDriveの検索はファイルの中身まで検索対象となっています。
    ファイル名やフォルダ名だけ検索で十分な場合があるため、検索時に検索対象を絞れるようにしてほしいです。

  20. Ability to display and move the BoxDrive search window anywhere

    The BoxDrive search window will be displayed according to your taskbar display settings.
