  2. Localized Box Drive UI

    Users are happy with localized web UI. Many are expecting the same for Box desktop tools, especially Box Drive

  3. Drag and Drop behavior to and from Box Drive

    The current behavior of dragging and dropping content between Box Drive and the local desktop is a "move" action on Windows, and a "copy" action on Mac. A "copy" action may be more intuitive, and will be similar to the behavior when dragging to and from the web app.Performing a "copy" action would also be better for retaining the original file in case of any issues.

  4. Per-Device 'Offline' Syncing ('mark a folder for offline use' on computer 1 but not computer 2 when logged into the same Box account)

    Currently, when a user chooses 'sync this folder' from the webapp, that folder is then synced for offline access to ALL computers where the user is logged into Box Sync. This request is to provide per-device syncing options, meaning: "I want to sync Folder A to computer 1 but not computer 2 (but I'm logged into the same Box account in Box for Desktop on both computers)." Key driver for this: often times users with multiple computers want certain files synced but not others (due to space constraints, etc).

  5. .PKG File for Deploying Box Sync on Macs

    We currently only provide a DMG file for deploying Box Sync on a Mac. This is not really scalable and not the preferred way to deploy apps to Mac workstations in large enterprises.

  8. Ability to set Lock timeframe when using Open With

    When a file is opened via the web app (i.e., Open With Word), the UI should allow a user to set a time limit for the lock. Currently, it only allows the user to click a check mark to indefinitely lock the file.

  15. "Save As" different file format option from Office applications

    Currently you can only save the document to Box as it is, but end users are accustomed to being able to save documents as a different file format from within Word/Powerpoint/Excel (especially saving to pdf format). Current functionality means users must "save as" locally first, and then upload to Box which is an extra step compared to what they're currently doing.
