    "Copy Local Link" in the right click menu.
    There is a "Copy Shared Link" in the right click menu that creates a link to the file or folder on the Box web. I would like a similar function that creates a link to the local file system, replacing the first part of the path with "%USERNAME%" or "%USERPROFILE%". With this function it would be possible to send links to files in the local file system.

  2. Allow setup quota for Box Driver(Mac)

    Currently there's no way in Mac to check my Box driver's quota setting, nor allow me change it.
    Please open this feature to us. I want to use that to control my Mac's disk usage, especially when I need to upgrade my Mac to latest OS. I need to release my disck space for upgrading.

  3. preset email address in the sign-in dialog in Windows

    When using Box Drive on Windows, i would like you to preset email address in the sign-in dialog.
    The email address can be get from the domain user's mail attribute.

    This is mandatory in environments where SSO is enabled/required.
    In the case of Box webapp, the IdP's authentication screen opens just by pressing the continue button once.

    However, in the case of Box Drive, you need to enter an email address to open the IdP screen.
    Also, IdP may ask you to enter email address again.

    The sequence of entering this email address hinders the user experience.
    We would like…

  4. The pop up box when you first sign up is very obtrusive. There's no X to click to make the box disappear and it's not helpful.

    Allow users to click on the basic steps box on the bottom left corner to disappear. It's obtrusive to have to walk through those steps to make it go away

  5. Drag-and-drop file uploads in any portion of white space in a given folder

    Files that are dragged from computer to browser window are not successfully uploaded to Box Drive folders unless they are dragged atop already existing files. Would you be able to expand the drag-and-drop's "catch region" to include all of the Box Drive folders' white space in a browser window? Thank you!

  6. Metrics for tracking most oft-accessed files on a Box Drive shared among a team, department, etc.

    OneDrive's tallying of the number of times particular files are accessed and by whom helped direct organization efforts for cloud storage and understand staff behavior. The Box Drive does not have a similar quantitative feature, as far as I know. Possible to create such a feature, to track who, when, and how often particular files and folders are used by staff permitted access? Thank you!

  7. Linked Files and Folders in Box Drive

    I'd like to be able to have a folder linked to other folders with the same file so the file can be updated from either location.

    For example, there are Client 1 and Client 2 folders each having the same Folder A within them. In Folder A would be File B and if you update File B by going through Client 1 folder, it would be updated the same as if you went through Client 2 folder.

  12. Automatic Sign-Out after period of inactivity, to predetermined time after login.

    I would like to be able to set a time frame that forces user to have to sign back in after a certain amount of time. This would preferably be after a certain time of inactivity, but being able to force someone to enter their login credentials after a set time would also work.

  13. Ability to whitelist applications that can access to Box Drive by using command prompt

    Whitelisting which application can access to Box Drive folder by using command prompt. Currently, customer is able to identify which application can NOT access to Box Drive. Rather, Marubeni Corporation ask Box to control which application is able to access to Box Drive folder.

  14. My biggest challenge is version control of files that are shared in multiple box folders.

    Ideally updating master file would then update all the different box files it is housed in that may have a variety of users. I spend more time on version controls and finding the latest one than anything.

  15. Ability to rename the parent directory in Box Drive

    I would like to know if it is possible to rename the parent directory in Box Drive. Right now ti seems that nothing I do, even in the registry, will stop the folder being named “Box”.

    Please let me know if there is any way I can rename this folder to anything other than “Box”.

  16. Icon or Warning Message to display when MFO using Box Drive would be helpful to collaborators

    Is there a way for an icon or warning message to display when users mark a folder for offline use or when a file is marked for offline use? This would really help since multiple people might be viewing and editing the same file and if someone is already working on it offline, then we wouldn’t want to make changes and override it.

  17. Remove the Sync icons in Webapp after uninstalling Box Sync

    After transitioning from Box Sync to Box Drive (and uninstalling Sync), the “Marked for Sync” icons on the webapp should be removed to avoid user confusion on how syncing works with Box Drive.
