  2. Alert notification when moving folders in Box Drive

    When the user move from the folder sharing with collaborators (the folder’s owner is others) to the private folder on Box Drive, it occur an error after a while. I think I want to inform the user prompty before doing that if their operation is wrong.
    Please display an alert like same as operation on web UI before the user try to move folders on Box Drive.

    Thank you for the suggestion. 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!

  3. See and share full path from Box Drive

    A function that enables to share Box Drive location/path between users.

    When using Box Drive on a daily bases, it is inconvenient that the user needs to open the link on the browser once to identify the specific location/folder path.

    It would improve to shorten the work flow if the users can see the full path from Box Drive so that they don’t have to go through the process to open box.com.

  4. Improve Box Drive memory usage

    Box recommend 4GB of RAM as minimum system specifications. But 4GB of RAM is not enough since Box Drive tends to use more than 1GB memory when a user open folder which has a lot of items. Therefore the fetching function should be improved to run efficiently on 4GB of RAM

    We are always striving to make improvements here. There won’t be one release were we resolve this issue though. Instead, there will be trying to make incremental improvements in all Box Drive releases.

  5. I would like to see functionality added to the terminate_sessions API to delete cache information.

    When an administrator deletes BoxDrive session information, the cache remains.
    Even if an administrator deletes BoxDrive session information using the terminatesessions API, the cache will remain on the user side because this API is different from normal logoff.
    In this situation, even if the user loses the authority to handle the data, the data remains at hand, which may cause a security incident by a malicious user.
    Therefore, we would like to add a function to delete cache information when the terminate
    sessions API is executed.
    In the above difficult case (because deleting the client's cache seems difficult due…

  6. Folder-Level Sync Controls: Restrict Managed Users from syncing a folder (even if they're an Editor / Co-Owner)

    Be able to disable sync at the folder level regardless of co-owner or editor collaboration level. Users need to be added at these collaboration levels but they should not have the ability to sync certain folders to their machine (e.g., heavily collaborated content).

    Box Shield may be a potential workaround for users interested in restricting syncing of specific content by classifying it. Though this will also prevent any downloads of the content as well.

  7. Windows 10 on ARM Support for Box Drive

    Currently, Box Drive does not function on devices running Windows 10 on ARM.

    ARM-based PCs are already taking over the Apple desktop and laptop ecosystem. Following that trend, Windows on ARM will likely become an increasingly important OS in the marketplace. Box Drive is an essential app for many Box users on Windows, and support will be necessary as the world migrates to ARM-based PCs.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

    However, BoxDrive has an Explorer-like feel, so I don't think this kind of display appears when moving/copying is performed. or some other confirmation dialog. When an operation is performed, we would like to see a confirmation dialog…

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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。

  15. Box Drive Accidental Deletion

    Since the introduction of Box Drive end users that haven't read the documentation and skip through the walkthrough aren't used to seeing all of the files and folders.

    The user without realizing, then believes that all of these files and folders either aren't needed or are taking up physical space on their hard drive.  The user then either randomly deletes select files and folder or just deletes everything within Box Drive.  A solution is needed to either further alert or prevent this.  One other possible solution is to create a process to fully restore all of the deletions and collaborations.

  16. Match the search capabilities that Windows Explorer has.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. Being able to sort by created date instead of modified\updated.

    Would be super helpful for people storing photos. If we snap a photo on our phone and then upload it to box in bulk, the date the picture was brought into box is the date shown. It would be nice to sort by file created date. You already have this date in the "file information" section when you right click on a file. Please make this available and let me know. Please please please.

    thanks

    Natalie.

  20. 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.
