  1. Add the ability to mark a folder for offline use (for viewers) when files have watermarks

    In a folder where I'm a viewer, I marked the folder for offline use and a check mark is displayed on the folder, but when I look at the files all have an exclamation point, indicating an error and cannot be viewed offline

  4. Pop-up message when unintentionally shifting folders

    It is strongly needed to have a pop-up message with Box Drive and Box Sync that allows the user to stop an unintentional shift of folders or files.

  6. Box Drive to notify users before logging out that files or folders not sycn up will be lost.

    It will be helpful if users will be notified before logging out of Box Drive that all files or folders not sync up to Box will be lost . In this way, users will be able to check again on the problem items and save it on other location before proceeding on logging out. This will prevent loss of files.

  7. Check prerequisite before installation

    When running Box Drive without installing Universal CRT, Drive would show an error message "Failed to execute script bfd_main" which is difficult to understand what went wrong.

  8. I'd like to be able to share a link that defaults to open the file in the native app on macOS.

    I'm not sure if this is more related to Box Drive or Box Tools, but it seems like it should be possible to open files in their native app rather than in the browser, or even just to open them in the Finder rather than on the web.

    Some of the reasons:
    1. Lots of people need to know where a file is within the larger heirarchy or get a file path, and it's significantly easier to do that in finder.
    2. Lots of people just don't like having to click the extra few times.
    3. It's frustrating to be…

  9. Add a loading animation when opening non-MFO‘d, non-cached files to show that it’s downloading

    This will offer a better user experience than double clicking a file and nothing happening for 30 seconds to a minute before the file opens.

  11. Clear cache after set period of time

  12. Disable drag/drop function for subfolders when navigating to save a file

    When navigating to the relevant subfolder to save a file, it is too easy to accidentally drag/drop a subfolder into a parallel one, on route.
    Causing headaches with missing folders and upsetting the folder structure.
    If the folder moving function could be frozen while saving files, this would be more secure.

  14. Add Make Available Offline control to Explorer/Finder toolbar

    We are pushing our users to start using Drive instead of Sync. Our helpdesk team brought up that they are concerned that the current UI for MFOing content (right click file, click “Make Available Offline”) is not intuitive for end users. They are requesting a button for “MFO“ to be surfaced on the top toolbar of the Windows Explorer window when an item is selected, so that the option is visible without having to right click the item.

  16. Add refresh button to Box Drive

    Add a refresh button to Box Drive above the Log out option in the system tray. When our users experience Box Drive red marks on their folders we always tell them to log out and log back in to refresh the folders. It would be nice if there was a refresh button.

  17. Add separate "status" column to Box Drive application

    Box Drive has a known issue of overlay iconography sometimes not displaying after installed. This is affecting about 10% of our client installs and is an absolute headache and nightmare to resolve without registry updates.

    This is caused due to the Box Drive apps's reliance on the "Image­List_Set­Overlay­Image" function in Windows which has a hard limit of 15 values. Thus Box Drive's icons "compete" with other cloud providers' icons on priority and is totally unsustainable as you are at the mercy of how other cloud providers code their software to take precedence over others in this list (by playing the…

  20. adding code to end of URL so content displays expanded automatically when a folder link is shared.

    Can you add some sort of feature so that we can control how content in folders display when we share folder links? Right now, content automatically displays in a list view and then you can zoom in to show a larger/expanded view of content.

    Can you make it so that we can add code to the end of the url link that will make the content display in the expanded view automatically? Or is there another way to change the preferences so that when we share folder links it automatically displays the content expanded?

    Thanks!
