  1. MFOffline/MFOnline multiple folders at once

    I'm dealing with tons of folders so it would be great to have this option. Need the ability to select multiple folders and mark them all at once.

  3. Be able to move files on Box online and have it update in Box Drive without having to log out.

    When moving large folders via Box online, the folder dissapears within Box Drive. According to Box, this is intended behavior, and requires the user to log out of the software and log back in, which resets what is synced. Box Drive should be able to update folder changes without having to sign out of the account.

  4. Open a file in web apps immediately when clicking on link in Box web file browser

    Currently, clicking on a link opens a new tab in the web browser with a preview of the file and the option to open the file in a web app. There should be a preference to open the file directly in a web app or to generate the preview screen. The preview screen would be useful if the text of the displayed document could be copied without line breaks at the end of each displayed line. I often open many documents per session to copy snippets, but have to take the extra step of opening the doc in a web…

  5. Indicate when a file has been shared by me

    Indicate when a file has been shared by me. This used to be a feature (an icon would appear next to the file) that I relied on because I don't always remember if I've shared the file or not. Now I may send a certain file more than once to a particular person not remembering that I already sent it.

  7. NetSuite integrations security enhancement.

    Allow the creation of a folder in Box that is secured by box, but the record is attached to the transaction. For example, under bill payments adding a box folder that can hold the contract for that specific payment. Contracts have more confidential information that needs to be secured. Since security in NetSuite is best used as a group, not all who can see if a payment was made, should see the details of the contract. Therefore the select folder should allow more restrictive security, managed by box.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. Allow option to restrict offline data by file type

    Allow us the option to prevent some files from downloading when a folder is made available offline based on file type.

    For instance, when traveling I may need access to PDFs for a job, but not need access or have space to sync a 2.5GB video file.

    Please allow us to restrict what files are synced by file type.

  18. When copying a link that has a past due expiration date notify the user when they copy the link

    When copying or emailing a link from Box Drive that has an already past due expiration date notify the user when they copy or attempt to email the link so they can update the link. That way the sender doesn't receive feedback about the link not working and appearing incompetent.

  20. Allow force download from web for red flagged files.

    On occasion, a discrepancy may be found between your local copy and the one on the web. I recommend adding the ability to override your local copy with the web version as a Box drive local option.
