  1. A snapshot of contents within a Box drive folder

    Have you ever looked at a top-level Box folder and felt overwhelmed by the prospect of having to dig through and drill down to every sub-folder just to know what the contents are?

    Do you get discouraged at the thought of looking for a single file that could possibly exist way down the rabbit hole of Box folders and sub-folders?

    Would you rather have the ability to glance at a snapshot of an entire Box folder and all the sub-folders and files that exist within it?

    A simple yet effective solution is a "tree directory" view. This is a feature…

  2. Ability to force sync of Box Drive

    Currently, Drive relies on event poll for updating cached contents, and if events (updates on web) are not picked up by Drive in a timely manner, then local contents get outdated (out of sync with web). As a workaround, we want the ability to force sync of a selected folder (maybe add a right click menu to force sync/refresh cache).

  3. We want to update the sync on the Box Drive in real time.

    The data edited by myself on the Box Drive will be reflected, but I would like the synchronization to be updated in real time for data edited/saved by other users.

  4. Open file from UI Elements without approval

    Ability to open a file from UI Elements Open With with Box Edit without being prompted to Approve/Deny to proceed.

    Currently, every time a file is opened from UI Elements, Box Edit displays the prompt and asks the user to Approve/Deny before the user can start locally opening and editing the file. This adds friction to user experience, and we want the option to not display this prompt and auto-approve the file open from UI Elements

    Thanks for the suggestion! We are looking at how to improve content sprawl on Drive. We will be considering Collections as a possible path (among other options), but don’t have a change planned in the near-term.

  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. Allow Marking Folders as "Move Locked" To Prevent Users From Moving Certain Folders Regardless Of Permissions

    Our admins are constantly dealing with users who accidentally drag and drop folders into other folders. This can have a big impact across our org, especially when a high level folder that's shared across the company is moved. Here's a common use case:

    We have a top level Projects folder. That folder contains a subfolder for every organization we do business with. Those Organization folders then contain subfolders for individual projects. We'd like to be able to mark the Organization level folders as Move Locked so that our users don't accidentally move folders from one Organization into another. This happens…

  8. Folder colors

    In Box it is not very easy to see what foders are shared externally. There are small globe icons on the collaborators, but if that list is too long, the external collaborator might not show up.

    Apart from that: the list of collaborators is not visible in Box Drive.

    Box should introduce a new Folder type (different color, different icon) to show that information in this folder is shared with external collaborators. This functionality should be available across all clients (Web, Drive, Mobile).

  9. Applying classification labels in Box Drive.

    When using Box Drive, classification labels are not visible in Windows Explorer.  Is there a way to apply classification labels without going to the web interface?

  10. I want you to be able to save the marked-up PDF data stand alone,or print.

    I want you to be able to save the marked-up PDF data stand alone,or print.
    Now, every member can mark up PDF data at once, but we cannot save the data as evidence or log of checking. if we can save the data as marked-up PDF in local folder it helps us very much.Because we who work for building architecture, have to check

    thousands of drawings and have to save these checked data.

  12. I want to restrict the installation of the desktop application by user

    Is it possible to add a feature to the management console that allows me to limit the installation of desktop applications (Box Drive, Box Note, etc.) per managed user?

    Once this is achieved, there will be more control over which desktop applications a corporate user can install.

  13. Ability to logout and delete cache from Box Drive on OS reboot

    Currently, it is necessary to logout/login to clear the cache and errors, but this is troublesome.
    The burden of performing this operation on a regular basis is on the end user.

    It would be easier to use if the logout/deletion of the cache could be done on OS reboot.
    (If it automatically re-logon after restarting OS, that would be even better)

    現状ではキャッシュやエラーをクリアするためにログアウト/ログインする必要がありますが、これは手間がかかります。
    この操作を定期的に行うのはエンドユーザーに負担がかかってしまいます。

    OS の再起動時にログアウト/キャッシュの削除ができればより便利だと思います。
    (OS の再起動後に自動的に再ログオンするようになれば更に良いと思います。)

  14. Jump to the same path on Box Drive directly from Box Web

    Like Dropbox app, we would like a capability to move directly from Box Web to Box Drive. The usecase behind this is that we want to edit a file from Box Drive not Box Edit but want to search on Box Web.

  15. Box Drive: Support ARM processors

    The new Microsoft Surface Pro X uses an ARM based processor and Box Drive doesn't support ARM processors. I'm sure use of the ARM processors will increase rapidly since it allows for much longer battery life and support cellular data connections.

  16. 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.

  17. Add a 'description' for folder and files at the top of the page, just below the folder/file name.

    A description of the folder at the top of the page will save time for our users, stakeholders and team members. It can be used as a way to describe what a user can expect to find in a given folder; and if this option extends in all sub-folders and files, it can help save a lot of time, bandwidth, and storage.

    The following format example will work well:

    Account name > Project name > Research files

    In this folder, you will find data about the project research and all the research files that are available. For any information on…

  18. SSO multi-zone assignment through Box Drive log in

    We have an enterprise initiative to start leveraging Box drive through our file share migration to Box. The usage is expected to be high within our enterprise since we are working towards enabling Box as an enterprise level application. Since we are a global company, we have requirements regarding data residency and data location within Box. While Zones provide that functionality, through our testing we found the Zone assignment doesn't change when the login is initiated from Box Drive, it only changes when you log through Web UI.
    Although the workaround is pretty obvious and have people log in through…

  19. Open shared links in Windows Explorer

    It would be great having the option for shared links to be opened in the Windows Explorer directly (if Box Drive / Box Sync is installed). Today, when a shared link is clicked, e.g. on Slack, it opens in the web browser, adding complexity to the workflow (e.g. having to log in, limited editing functionality, etc.). Most of our team today revert to clicking the shared link just to identify the location of the file in the browser, then finding and opening the file manually on Box Drive.

  20. Box Drive (Windows) - Remember folder view settings

    We’ve been using Box Drive since launch, and it’s been an incredible improvement in our workflow. Only a small issue has made it notably less useful in saving time, and is a known issue documented here (community.box.com/t5/Box-Drive-Known-Issues..)

    Our file name and directory lengths are wider than the default for Box Drive/Windows. Normally Windows remembers preferences around column width, but in this case, as you know, Box Drive does not. This causes us to have to manually resize the “Name” field in every folder/directory, every time we access one. Therefore each user is having to do this perhaps dozens of times…
