  1. Share folder as read-only/add folder to Box Drive from shared link

    Case:
    I receive the agenda and related documents for meetings within the department I work at as Shared Links to a folder in Box. I want to access these documents during the meeting directly through Box Drive on my computer. The desired access includes any documents added after I first opened the link. All related accounts are part of the same organisation/"Company" (in this case a university).

    Current situation:
    When I am signed into my Box account and open the link I can view the documents and have two options: "Save link" and "Download". The only way to get it…

  2. I want Japanese mark of a voiced sound in speech characters to be unified with NFC.

    I want Japanese mark of a voiced sound in speech characters to be unified with NFC.

    -Overview-
    example: the 'ga' syllabary series in the Japanese alphabet
    'ガ'is U+30AC on windows or unix/linux
    -> NFC(Normalization Form Canonical Compression)
    'ガ'is U+30AB U+3099U on mac OSX
    -> NFD(Normalization Form Canonical Decompression)

    As you know, mac OSX use only NFD.
    Windows use NFC usually, but NFD can be used at the same time.

    When trying to share BOX folder between Win and mac, Inconvenience occurs.

    -problem-
    First
    In Windows explorer, NFC and NFD are displayed as the same character on the screen, so they are…

  5. Box Drive and Time Machine

    You seriously need to work on your time machine issues. Almost all my data are gone, as in GONE, also from the trash bin that you just empty every 30 days. Thanks for hours of work that I will have to put in now to restore data from time machine. Yes, important data. Data that hold HOURS of hard work.

  6. Box Drive Accidental Deletion

    Since the introduction of Box Drive end users that haven't read the documentation and skip through the walkthrough aren't used to seeing all of the files and folders.

    The user without realizing, then believes that all of these files and folders either aren't needed or are taking up physical space on their hard drive.  The user then either randomly deletes select files and folder or just deletes everything within Box Drive.  A solution is needed to either further alert or prevent this.  One other possible solution is to create a process to fully restore all of the deletions and collaborations.

  8. Increase the start-up speed of Box Drive. It is SOOO slow to start!

    Every time I have to restart my computer it takes Box Drive a good 5-10 minutes to start. This is unacceptable for such a large enterprise like this. Even accessing my offline files cannot be done until Box Drive completely starts.

  9. Specify the error in the Tracking section

    Feature request suggestion: Currently all it says is "Unable to create folder: An error occurred in the workflow". It would've been helpful to see that the error was in the folder name. If there's a lack of space, we can list all the possible reasons for the error on Community too (I think we have a similar list for Sync/Drive errors).

  10. We would like to change the icons for Box Drive to appear different for a shortcut vs network drive.

    We would like to change the icons for Box Drive to appear different for a shortcut vs network drive. We encountered an issue and confusion with Box Drive. One day, Box Drive didn't start up. We assumed that the shortcut icon on the desktop wasn't working properly. Therefore, we went to [C:\Users*UserAccount*] and found a shortcut icon which was exactly the same as the one on the desktop. We thought this icon was the shortcut to Box Drive, so we moved this shortcut icon to the desktop, and all of a sudden, the contents in Box were all moved to…

  13. Request for Long-Term-Support (LTS) release for Box Drive

    we request for Long-Term-Support (LTS) release for Box Drive.
    Currently, box drive is updated too much frequently, therefore it is very impossible for us to upgrade Box drive to latest version in a adequate timing (when we upgrade box drive, it takes long time to validate and install box drive every time).We would like to use box drive as long as possible in the same version: Long-Term-Support (LTS)(We do hope that support term should be at least longer than 6 months) .

  14. Simplify Box Experience Per Design

    Currently, my firm has Box Drive integrated to our Salesforce CRM. What would help simplify and in the end optimize our experience by minimizing errors is to be allowed the option to remove the top search bar banner and the documents file path from the Salesforce instance. Limiting the access to other files from one contact to another can also help prevent accidental file modifications. Hope this can be of benefit to other Box users!

  17. Alert notification when moving folders in Box Drive

    When the user move from the folder sharing with collaborators (the folder’s owner is others) to the private folder on Box Drive, it occur an error after a while. I think I want to inform the user prompty before doing that if their operation is wrong.
    Please display an alert like same as operation on web UI before the user try to move folders on Box Drive.

    Thank you for the suggestion. We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap.

    Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!

  18. Copy file name and URL and path for shared link

    The "Copy Shared Link" action in Box Drive (or Copy button in the Share pop-up dialog in the Web UI) should copy more than just the URL.
    It should also have the file name and the current Box path so when I paste the link into a chat or email message, it has all the information the recipient will want.

    <path> > '<filename>"
    <box share URL>

  19. Box Drive path for InDesign linked files

    Background:
    We’ve moved the location of Box Drive to be outside the username location for our users. This allows for multiple users to work with InDesign , collaborate, and reference the correct asset links without issue. Reference – community.box.com/t5/Deploying-Managing-Box..

    Issue:
    However, if a user hasn’t previously viewed the file in BOX Drive (e.g. ‘downloaded it to force a local sync’) then the linking of the file still breaks. This causes the following issues : when the user opens an InDesign file, they still need to navigate to anywhere from 5 – 50 different file locations in BOX Drive to ‘open/sync/download’…
