  1. 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) .

  2. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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>

  7. 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’…

  9. Jump to the same path on Box Drive directly from Box Web

    Like Dropbox app, we would like a capability to move directly from Box Web to Box Drive. The usecase behind this is that we want to edit a file from Box Drive not Box Edit but want to search on Box Web.

  10. Hide comments except for poster and folder owner/s to see

    Add a folder setting that allows collaborators to post comments, but these comments are only visible to the poster and the folder owner. Responses to comments from an owner should only be visible to the original poster.

  12. Manage Permissions directly on the folder in Box Drive

    Add ability to review/manage colloborators on Box folders through right click on context menu of Box Folder, when Box Drive is online. It's not efficient to go into Box Online to do this .

  16. Add Description field in Windows Explorer

    It would be a great feature if Box Drive could be integrated so that the "Description" meta field on the Box website is populated into the actual Description field when files are viewed on Box Drive locally on a desktop (i.e. adding the "Description" column to the view in Windows Explorer).

  17. Open local file from shared link

    When opening a box.com link, the site should detect that I have box drive installed, then prompt me to open the file locally or go to the folder in finder/explorer.

    Better yet, Box drive could intercept the url, check if the file is local and open it seamlessly if it finds it.

  18. Automatically prohibit unsupported characters

    Box Drive and unsupported characters:

    It’s hard to find each folder or file that contains prohibited characters, so I’d like to have prohibited characters registered online automatically deleted or replaced
    so they will appear in Box drive.

  19. Allow/Disallow apps on a per role or user group basis.

    Allow/Disallow apps on a per role or user/group basis. This could be for mobile apps, Box Drive, etc. Really make the control more granular than just all on/off for the Enterprise.

  20. Granular Permissions for allowing Box Drive and MFO

    Granular Permissions for allowing users to access Box Drive and allow them to mark content for offline use.

    Similar to the way sync functioned, it would be good to have per-user permissions for Box Drive and MFO.
