  1. UI enhancements to indicate moving/copying activity in progress

    When moving/copying files and folders in BoxDrive, I want to be able to see visually that an operation is taking place.

    Currently, BoxWeb displays a green dialog at the top of the screen when you move or copy files or folders,
    but However, BoxDrive has an explorer-like feel, so I don't think this kind of display appears even when a move/copy is performed.

  2. List View of Marked For Offline Files

    It is imperative that we have a view of which folders we have Make Available Offline. We can't hunt and peck through hundreds of folders with a Green Checkmark on it to Make Available Online Only when we're finished with a big "sync". This is already a hoop we're jumping through because we can't "sync" to an external drive so we have to manually manage internal Hard Drive space. A user should be able to see what they have marked for offline at a glance so they can easily reverse the storage affect on local hard drives.

  3. Box Drive Warning When File Path is too Long

    There is a known issue with Box Drive that if a file path is exceeds a character count limit, then the file cannot be opened on desktop, however it can be opened via Box on the web. The issue is, when a user has a file on their desktop, that has a current file path within the character count limits, then moves the file to Box Drive within Windows Explorer and the new path in box exceeds the character limits. As of now, the user can copy and paste into Box Drive and not realize that their new path will…

  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.

  5. Have Box Notes Accessed via Drive Open in Box Notes Desktop Application

    Right now, when a user opens a Box Note from Drive on their desktop, the note is opened in the webapp, rather than the Box Notes desktop app they have installed.

    A better flow would be to have those notes open in the Notes desktop app instead

  6. cache Box Drive

    Refresh function in Box Drive

    Currently, it is necessary to logout/login to clear the cache and errors, but this is troublesome.
    I would like to be able to do this with the touch of a button.
    This is expected to improve the efficiency of our business.

    Box Driveのリフレッシュ機能

    現状ではログアウト/ログインしてキャッシュやエラーをクリアする必要がありますが、これが面倒です。
    これをボタン一つでできるようにしてほしいです。
    これにより業務の効率化が期待できます。

  7. Box drive won't show files that don't sync

    We have many department users uploading files to Box via Box drive but sometimes Box drive won't upload all the files due to a certain discrepancy. There is no error on Box drive and the only way to find this is to check for the number files on Box web as compared to the number of files on Box drive for the particular folder. This is very concerning and Box drive should either show the list of files not uploaded to Box or shouldn't allow users to upload files using Box drive. I hope there will be a fix released…

  8. Box Drive support MacOS Monterey

    Box does not support Box Drive aliases with Mac OS Monterey. We need this feature back so users don't remove/delete files and folders from Box by mistake.

  9. Add auto-lock/unlock feature in Box Drive or provide a configuration tool

    Add auto-lock/unlock feature in Box Drive or provide a configuration tool

    In Box Drive v2.21, it is possible to enable the ability to automatically lock/unlock files when they are opened in Box Drive by modifying the registry.
    However, it is difficult for end users to modify the registry, so we would like to see Box Drive include the feature to automatically lock/unlock files, or provide a configuration tool (such as a batch file for registry modification) to modify the registry.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

    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!

  14. Enhanced Locking Experience on Box Drive for Mac

    With Enhanced Locking on Box Drive now launched for Windows (https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360063653693-Box-Drive-v2-21-Release-Notes), it'll be great to have the same experience, i.e. opening a file will prompt the user to lock the file and auto-unlock the file when closing the file, for Mac users.

    This way all users, no matter what OS they use, can have the same Enhanced Locking experience when working with files via Box Drive.

  15. Tags and comments in Box Drive

    Is there a way to see the tags in Box Drive? Right now I have to view box on the browser to see the tags for each file. Is there some option to view the tags in Box Drive without having to go to box.com each time?

  17. 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.

  18. Make Box Tags visible in Box Drive (on Windows)

    We have used Tags extensively to categorise content in Box, it would be great now that we have moved to Box Drive that these are visible against the folders displayed in here too.

    A true silent update is not currently planned. We have made some improvements to Box Drives update behavior by including silent updates when Box Drive is launching, if an update is already available. This improvement is in v2.3 for Mac and v2.3 for Windows.
