  1. Enable opening of objects with long folder paths

    In Box Sync, you were able to open files regardless of path length - there was sometimes an issue with saving long path files, but not with opening.

    In Box Drive, you cannot open files with long path lengths...which is obviously a problem for any organization that uses a deep folder structure.

    Solely seeking feature parody between box sync and box drive...

  2. Provide a FUSE (Filesystem in userspace) handler for Box Linux and other *nix support

    Linux, and other operating systems, have a mechanism for vendors to provide transparent filesystem access to esoteric file storage mechanisms in userspace, without the need to write a kernel module using "FUSE" (Filesystem in Userspace).

    Box would only need to write a FUSE handler, and then that'd open up access to a lot of *nixes.

  4. Provide direct links for files listed in Problem Items window to the actual files in Box Drive.

    When users have a large number of Problem Items (> 10) it can be a pain to find exactly where these Problem Items are. The search function doesn't work well for these files and you can't even copy the name of these files. A direct link to them would be most convenient.

  5. Box Drive Tour and Updates

    We have added Box Drive to our VDI image. At each login, a user logs into Box Drive as if it was the first time when logging into a VDI computer. We'd like the option to be able to skip the Box Tour as it doesnt need to repeat every time.

    Additionally, we'd like to disable Box Drive updates as we'd want to do them on a controlled basis on the image.

  7. Possible bug: large directory fails to enter upload queue after uploading file to sibling directory

    I edit videos. When I'm done, I upload the finished video to one Box directory, then upload the project directory to a sibling Box directory. The finished video is 8 to 15 megabytes. The project directory has 2 files totaling about 100 megabytes.

    When I try to upload the project directory, it often just doesn't enter the upload queue after selecting it for upload from the modal upload window. I can do this multiple times and it doesn't upload. After reloading the page, then it will upload like normal.

    This doesn't interrupt my workflow at all, but it might be…

  8. BoxDrive app for Windows better error messages visible to users

    We are trying to troubleshoot BoxDrive connectivity issues and the only error it generates now is "Verify that you are connected to the internet and restart Box Drive". This error is not specific enough to start the troubleshooting process. BoxDrive for Windows needs to have a better error messages shown to the users if it's an issue with network connectivity, user authentication or any other issue.

  9. Would love to have files/folders in numbered order when more than 9

    In some of my Box Drive folders I would like to number the sub folders/files for best structure. So the folder names would be something like: 1. Budget, 2. Production plan, 3. ...... 10. Casting, 11. Marketing, and so on.
    But when I have more than 9 folders numbered like this they will not keep in the numbered order. 10 and 11 comes before 2 and so on. This drives me and my coworkers crazy. Is there any way to fix this so that they keep in the numbered order 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11 and so on?

  10. Please add popup when adding or moving a file from local to Box

    We can easily add or move file from local storage to Box drive or browser.
    However, box does not prompt any popup when we add or move file.

    It may cause miss operation.
    So, Please add popup when add or movefile.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We are looking at how to improve content sprawl on Drive. We will be considering Collections as a possible path (among other options), but don’t have a change planned in the near-term.

  16. Box Drive Backups via Time Machine

    Allow Time Machine on a Mac to backup files stored on the Box Drive on my HD.

  18. Add file/folder sort by some property (i.e. "creation", etc ) as these are contained in the file info

    I know this has been raised before. the ability to sort by other criteria should be possible, as the File Properties, File Information already contains the metadata.

    eg.
    File Properties
    Name
    Description
    Owner
    Enterprise Owner
    Last Updated By
    Size
    Created
    Modified

  19. Different Reference method to the Box location

    I need to be able to refer to a Box Drive location independent of a drive letter - Six users. Five users have box configured to sync to c: The sixth user has to have the location on his D: drive, due to space limitations (and big "Box" size).

    we need some way to refer to these files in some other more universal method (LIKE a UNC path... or \127.0.0.1\BOX\ or YOU NAME IT ) so that the SAME reference will work, whether someone's Box drive is on C: or D:

  20. Box drive to support SAML-based authentication

    We use Okta as a primary authentication method for Cloud-based applications like Box.
    Would like to see Box Drive to support for either redirect to main iDP configured at box account or naively support SAML-based authentication.
