  1. Offer preview of images for Box Drive or Box Sync.

    As a designer, when working on a publication, it would be helpful to be able to have a preview of images saved in Box for quicker identification directly from the Desktop Box Drive. Right now, we have to preview with Finder, which is an additional step and makes the process cumbersome. Thank you for your consideration.

  3. 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.

  4. Box Drive path for InDesign linked files

    Background:
    We’ve moved the location of Box Drive to be outside the username location for our users. This allows for multiple users to work with InDesign , collaborate, and reference the correct asset links without issue. Reference – community.box.com/t5/Deploying-Managing-Box..

    Issue:
    However, if a user hasn’t previously viewed the file in BOX Drive (e.g. ‘downloaded it to force a local sync’) then the linking of the file still breaks. This causes the following issues : when the user opens an InDesign file, they still need to navigate to anywhere from 5 – 50 different file locations in BOX Drive to ‘open/sync/download’…

  5. Change local BfD folder UI to distinguish if collaborators are in folders (like webapp)

    Add UI to local BfD folders to know ownership/collaborators of folders (i.e. yellow = no collabs, grey = external collab, blue = owned externally + collaborators)

    not planned  ·  Kyle Williams responded

    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!

  6. Auto lock/unlock for read-only file.

    Currently, BoxDrive works with AutoLockUnlock=1 as below.

    1. When we open a read-only settings(Windows OS file property), it is locked automatically.
    2. And then, when we close the file, the read-only setting is gone.

    Please improve as below.

    1. When we open a read-only settings(Windows OS file property), it is not locked automatically.
    2. And then, when we close the file, the read-only setting keeps.

    Best,

  7. Please add popup when adding or moving a file from local to Box

    We can easily add or move file from local storage to Box drive or browser.
    However, box does not prompt any popup when we add or move file.

    It may cause miss operation.
    So, Please add popup when add or movefile.

  9. Indexing Box Drive Offline Files

    I have access to a number of folders that I don't need frequently (if at all), but I do have a select group of folders that I use daily, and I keep these stored as files available offline. I recently migrated from a computer that used Box Sync to a computer using Box Drive, and I was very disappointed to find that I couldn't search my offline files using the windows file explorer. Instead, I'm forced to use the Box Drive search window, which requires that I search ALL of my folders, which frustrates many of my directed searches.

    I…

  11. box drive metadata

    With some of the new updates coming to Metadata, I'd like to request that Box Drive be able to support updates to Metadata on a folder/file.

    As a start, a context menu option that would take a user directly to the metadata page.

  12. Set up the Box Drive installer so the user gets to Single Sign On (SSO) by default

    There are quite a few steps when logging in to Box when installing Box Drive. It'd be helpful for us if the users could get to the SSO window directly instead of first having to enter their email address and then click the (not so obvious) ”Sign In with SSO” link.

    It'd also be great if the ”NORDUnet Box Service” could filter away the list of services based on the domain name in the email address the user just typed, especially since typing the name of the institutin and and then ”enter” (which I know one isn't supposed since the…

  14. 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.

  15. About character limit of "description" of file property

    Please increase the amount of text you can write in the "description" in the file properties.

  17. Map Trash on Box.com to Box Drive App

    This is very useful to users who deleted a file accidentally on Box Drive App to recover it without opening Box.com.

    I once deleted one file through Box Drive, and it prompted that it would be deleted permanently and Stop me from undoing. I did not realize that it still can be retrieved from Box.com. If we have a Trash folder on Box Drive App that maps to the Trash on Box.com. That would be fantastic.

  18. Short cut link for the file in Box Drive should be available

    Windows shortcut link for the file in Box Drive is broken if the BoxDrive cache is deleted. If the shortcut exists, the file in Box Drive should be opened as far as it exists.
