  1. Ask users to enter their email address before viewing a file

    Is there is a feature that requests/restricts a person who receives a file link to submit their email address in order to view the file. Sort of a Docsend killer.

  2. Automatically save Box Drive logs

    I want Box Drive logs to be automatically saved in Box.

    Currently, Box Drive logs are deleted by log rotation, and even a customer wants to ask Box to investigate, the logs are no longer left.
    As a result, Box, Inc. sometimes cannot investigate it.

    Because Box recommends an unlimited-capacity digital workplace environment, I think it's nonsense that we lose logs.

    Therefore, I would like to be able to automatically save the Box Drive log to Box as an option.

  3. Box Shutdowns down early during shutdown, so MS Word docs with changes can't be saved if shutdown aborted

    This problem plagues me onace a week or so. When Windows 10 is shutting down, Box Drive shutdowns down early before Windows asks to save opened changed docs - so MS Word docs with changes can't be saved if shutdown aborted. I end up having to save locally, reboot, then put the file into Box, then shutdown a second time. Painful, especially at the end of the day.
    Proposal - work with Microsoft on a way to delay the Box shutdown point - until after the cancel shutdown message occurs...

  4. Ability to control folder actions on Box Drive

    When using box drive, I would like to update the specifications so that control (move / delete) is possible so as to prevent accidentally moving the folder to an unexpected location.

    box drive 利用時、フォルダを誤って予期せぬ場所に移動させることを未然に防ぐような、制御(移動/削除)が可能となるような仕様にアップデートを希望いたします。

  6. Open multiple tabs

    Multiple tabs. We would like the ability to open different files (which may or may not be in different folders) in a tabed structure so that examining these files or reexamining these files during a discussion of their contents would not require a succession of closing and reopening files. We are proposing a structure similar to the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge tabs.

  7. Date and Time of uploading file on BOX

    Hi! I was faced with the problem of file date uploading on display on BOX.

    I know that usually, BOX shows "Today" or "Yesterday" if the file was uploaded to BOX today or yesterday. It's clear, but, I need to see the exact date displayed with numbers. For example, I want to see that the file was uploaded to BOX "18 of May, 2022" instead of "Today".

    Moreover, I even can't see the time when the file was uploaded to BOX. I work with the client in different time zones (the difference is 10 hrs) and sometimes it is really…

  8. Specify box drive location and cache location

    Enable the option for users to specify Box Drive location.
    Changing it in the registry is way too advanced for most users and easily fixable with a build-in feature.
    Enable the ability to specify Cache location is also a must-have.
    Files flooding my C: drive is annoying to say the least, espacially when working with big files.

  9. View Owner/Creator of Files in Box Drive

    We would like the ability to display accurate information about the Owner/creator of files within Box Drive for Windows. The Owner column in Windows was used prior to our migration to Box to show who originally created the file for a folder all in a single glance. Although Box.com shows the upload history of individual files, it's a manual process of viewing each file-- a pain point-- compared to the table view of File Explorer with the Owner column displaying. Currently, within Box Drive/File Explorer, the Owner column is empty. This would be useful for the users to know who…

  11. Provide appropriate warning before moving a folder to a different owner in Box Drive UI

    In Box Drive, moving folder to a different owner looks like it works (a folder dragged to new Box location in Box Drive/Finder appears in the new location), but it actually fails and an OS notification pops up only briefly. The suggested fix (if the user notices the problem and can find the message about it) is also not ideal -- Box wants you to manually move the folder back yourself, but if you don't see this message right away then you might not remember where you moved it from.

    Ideally, this would warn the user about the change in…

  12. Add account info to Box application window

    One of our users recently asked the following:

    "In the Box drive alert window, the Box Drive Settings gear icon doesn't
    do anything useful. Please add an actual settings window with basic
    information like file space used, buttons for pause/restart syncing, etc.

    The Box Drive window is an alert style window that disappears anytime a
    mouse is clicked or any other window is interacted with. This is the
    case in Windows 7 through Windows 11. It would be better if Box Drive
    had an actual application window like most other apps."

    I know that manual syncing isn't possible yet in…

  13. file transfer status

    One of our users recently asked the following:

    "The Transfers pane in the Box drive alert window rarely shows any file
    names, even when files are actively being transferred. Please change the
    Transfers window so that it shows a rolling list of all transferring and
    recently transferred files and a time remaining estimate. The list
    should be rolling and not clear when the transfers are done. It should
    always be possible to see the last 5-10 files that Box Drive has
    transferred."

    I'm not sure if this is a reasonable request, but thought I'd share it here.

  14. More detailed error handling with sync errors

    We have a user who is on Box Drive that has had several sync errors come up on his Box Drive client over the last week, but when he clicks on the info icon next to the s"9 items with sync errors message" it just gives them a generic error message with no details about which files can't be synced or how long they haven't been synced. I don't know if there's an existing solution for this, but thought I'd mention it here.

  16. improve box drive file listing when navigating to a new folder

    Currently as you navigate Box Drive and hit a new folder there can be a noticeable delay before the content listing of the folder is displayed and for that time (can be several seconds or more) the impression is left that the directory is empty. The user is left trying to determine if they need to wait or if there are actually no files or folders within the folder.

    An improvement would to either maintain a local cache of the folder/file hierarchy and then download the actual file when it's selected for open. Or a predictive recursive tree query when…

  17. Moving from Box Drive now deletes instead of copies

    When moving a file from Box Drive to another volume like your computer, it now removes the file from BOX altogether. Prior to the latest update to the platform, it used to make a copy by default.

    We use BOX as a file server and this opens up the potential for accidental deletion. Making the source folders read-only doesn't work either because we have to be able to edit contents on BOX.

    Can you provide the option in a setting or elsewhere to turn on forced copy by default when dragging files from BOX to another Volume?

  18. Dragging files or folders out of BOX makes a copy

    With the recent update to BOX Drive, when you move something from BOX to your computer it removes it from BOX. It used to make a copy by default. We use BOX as a shared file server and this change allows for accidental deletion.

    Can you please add the ability to make this copy rather than move the file, only when moving out of BOX onto the computer or an outside volume?

  19. Upload In The Order We Added Them + Reorder

    I don't understand why Box Drive decided to upload files in a completely random. Say that I add a number of files, then later add another bulk of files, it will start uploading them or a whole random different selection. Why doesn't it upload them in the order I added them (first come, first serve).

    A bonus would be to reorder your uploads, so if some become more of a priority.

  20. Select Upload Limit, Pause Uploads

    Hello, I have multiple ideas for this relatively limited featured app:

    1. We should be able to select how many items we wish to upload at a time, instead of this default 10 or so at a time. If I've got a busy schedule, I sometimes want to achieve a few uploads at time and then pause (next point).

    2. We should definitely be able to Pause Uploads, Dropbox has it, OneDrive has it, why not Box. For my work, I need my bandwidth quite often, so currently the only way of "pausing" is closing the app completely, and not knowing whether…
