  1. I would like shortcut files created on Box Drive to be reflected on Box Web as well.

    I am aware that shortcut files (.lnk) created in Box Drive (on Explorer) are ignored as a file type and cannot be synchronized.
    However, in my work, I use Box Drive a lot and sometimes create shortcuts, but I can't share them because they are not synced, and they are deleted when I log out of the system.
    I feel this kind of specification is very inconvenient.
    I would love to see you respond to make this happen.

    (Japanese)
    Box Drive(エクスプローラー上)で作成したショートカットファイル(.lnk)は、
    無視されるファイルの種類として対象となっており同期が出来ないことは認識してます。
    しかしながら業務上、Box Driveの利用が多くショートカットの作成することがありますが、
    同期されないことで共有もできず、またログアウトしたことで削除されてしまう。
    このような仕様だと大変不便に感じてます。
    実現に向けて是非対応してほしい。

  2. Box Drive specification improvement request

    Box Drive is downloading a large amount of event streams, which can overwhelm company's network bandwidth. Due to the network bandwidth pressure, the business other than Box has been affected, so please take measures.
    Here are the details:

    Box Drive is likely retrieving folder and file events that the logged-in user has access to, but is aware that there may be a large number of event downloads in the following cases, for example:.
    ・A specific user performs bulk operations on a folder in which many users are collaborating. (All events are downloaded to Box Drives of all collaboration users)

  3. Box Drive Moving a Folder Off of Drive Fully Deletes it From Box for Mac FPE Users, Folder Lock API Enhancements

    For PC Users on Drive (and historically for Mac users), when you move a folder from Box Drive onto your Desktop, it simply makes a copy of that folder and leaves the original in Box.
    However, for Mac Users on the new FPE version of Box Drive, if they move a folder from Drive onto the Desktop, it fully deletes the folder from Box.
    For example, I am an Editor on a Marketing Folder that's owned by the IT Service Account and shared with hundreds of colleagues. I accidentally move this folder from Box Drive onto my desktop (easy mistake…

  5. Enhanced Lock/Unlock on Box Drive for CAD files

    I hope the Enhanced lock/unlock experience, which is currently only available for Office files, be made available for CAD files and others as well.

  6. Allow Us To Move Collaborator Folders to a sub-folder without removing the permissions

    When a user shares a folder with us it sits in our Root folder. Can these show up in a Shared folder to save our Root folder having a load of odd name folders. We believe you can do this in Dropbox.

    ideally we need to be able to change the folder name at our end too without amending it at the user end.

  7. Please add Password Protection as a FREE feature

    It's just a disappointmet to have password protection of your files as a paid feature. For me it's a deal breaker...

  8. Collaborator files from Box Drive not showing up on Box.com

    Ever since we updated our systems to macOS Ventura we've encountered many issues with Box Drive, now we are not seeing files from other collaborators that they report to have synced showing up on other peoples Drive or on Box.com at all. Box Drive has become unreliable lately, and users are being forced to manually upload files via desktop to ensure their files sync. Please fix!

  9. Updating versions from Box Drive seems to be critically broken

    Saving over files in box drive used to update cloud with a version, it seems this is being ignored, and cannot be trusted when checking if this update is committed to the cloud. Things have gone seriously wrong with Box Drive integration every since macOS Ventura upgrade.

  10. Adding a function to manage tasks in BoxDrive

    Since we mainly use BoxDrive, we would like to be able to conduct task management from BoxDrive as well.
    Specifically, we would like to be able to check the tasks assigned to us and the tasks we have sent from Box Drive, just like "My Tasks List" and "Tasks Inbox" on Box Web.

    <BoxDriveでタスク管理できる機能の追加>
    BoxDriveをメインで利用しているため、タスク管理もBoxDrive上から実施できるようにしてほしい。
    具体的には、Box Web上の「My Tasks List」や「Tasks Inbox」のように、自分に割り当てられているタスクや自分が送信したタスクを、Box Driveからも確認できるようにしてほしい。

  11. Folder-level "custom terms of service"

    Is it possible to only setup "Custom Terms of service" on specific sub-folders for external collaborators? Or is this setting only account-wide??

    Use case:

    We have a dataroom set up, and some external collaborators have problems accessing the "login custom terms of service" NDA and logging into Box. The notification emails from the system are often sent to their spam folder.

    We can send an NDA via the "e-sign" feature, but don't want our external collaborators to then have to accept it a 2nd time when they come to a (separate, for NDA e-signers) dataroom folders.

    Can we setup a…

  12. Ability to to delete saved previous versions

    I am burning through storage because Box is saving every version of a file I am working on. There is currently no easy way to cut down and delete all previous versions of a file, and going through one by one is time consuming (and after I did, did not seem to decrease the folder size anyways). It would be awesome if there was a way to delete all previous versions of a file and only keep the most recent one.

  13. I am trying to see if I can lock down folders to prevent people from accidental moving or deletion.

    In Box Drive (File Explorer), sometimes our users accidentally move folders into other folders, not realizing what they did. Then people cannot find what they are looking for. Is there a way we can prevent this? Or is there a way we can prevent this for higher-level folders? Or is there a way a user can receive a prompt along the lines of "Are you sure you wish to move this folder?"

  14. Provide appropriate warning before moving a folder to a different owner in Box Drive UI

    In Box Drive, moving folder to a different owner looks like it works (a folder dragged to new Box location in Box Drive/Finder appears in the new location), but it actually fails and an OS notification pops up only briefly. The suggested fix (if the user notices the problem and can find the message about it) is also not ideal -- Box wants you to manually move the folder back yourself, but if you don't see this message right away then you might not remember where you moved it from.

    Ideally, this would warn the user about the change in…

  15. I want to share only the necessary folders and files on the BOX drive

    Since it is troublesome to access BOX.com, I usually access and edit the necessary folders and files from the BOX drive, but it would be convenient to be able to display only the necessary folders and files. Currently, when you open a folder with "Windows + E", all the folders and files in "All files" of BOX.com are displayed on the BOX drive, but you do not access all of these, and you can save files that are accessed infrequently. I think you should check BOX.com to confirm.
    I think it would be useful to have options such as "Share…

  16. Allow BoxDrive search to be limited to files and folders names

    The current BoxDrive search will search the contents of the file as well.
    We would like to be able to narrow down the search target when searching, because sometimes it is enough to search only the file name or folder name.
    (In Japanese)
    現在のBoxDriveの検索はファイルの中身まで検索対象となっています。
    ファイル名やフォルダ名だけ検索で十分な場合があるため、検索時に検索対象を絞れるようにしてほしいです。

  18. Can't filter search files marked for offline use to unmark quickly and regain HD space.

    NEED ASAP: See file list of marked for "offline use" to quickly/easily unmark to regain HD space. I regularly run low on space locally. Users should have a way for Box to ID files based on cache of local machine—to "unmark all" quickly, AS WELL AS selectively with a list of files marked offline to keep any files "offline available" as needed. A MUST-HAVE feature for managing files, since the whole point of box is file storage and accessibility.
