  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  5. Show Metadata in Box Drive

    Metadata is currently not visible in Box Drive. Is there a way to show/apply/change metadata without going to the web interface?

  6. video thumbnail hover preview

    I would like to be able to hover my mouse over a thumbnail of a video and preview frames from it when I move my cursor left or right. Just like in Adobe Premiere Media Browser. It would make it easier to parse through footage faster without downloading or playing the video.

  7. version tracking between multiple files

    It often happens that multiple files relate to the same product and therefore need to have the same version tracking. In this case if a version is created by mistake (the version number is incremented on a file) this can offset the version tracking between all the files related to the same product. Some solutions include:

    1 - Give more flexibility around version numbering (be able to do a hard reset of the version number - i.e. reset version number from number 30 to number 25 and delete all versions in-between)
    2 - Allow version tracking between multiple files -…

  8. Allow System Administrators to download pkgs/msi's for all OS without being redirected on your site.

    Hello!
    I am unable to download the regular box drive pkg on my m1 mac. I am a system administrator who needs to download all pkgs/msi in order to support the business. I shouldn't have to use an intel based m1 mac just to download a pkg to upload to jamf.

    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043696254-Large-Scale-Deployments-Box-Drive

    My suggestion would be to put direct links to the intel mac pkg on this page and the m1 pkg as well.

  11. List of Offline Folders in Box Drive

    It would be great to be able to see a list of folders marked for offline availability in Box Drive. We've had a few users who end up accidentally using up too much hard drive space, but can't remember exactly what folders they've marked offline. We end up needing to have them sign out of Box Drive to clear all offline folders, then sign back in and re-mark folders they need.

  13. Set a configuration option to toggle thumbnails off by default

    When a multipage, or multisheet, document is opened in Box, the thumbnails are toggled open by default and take up much of the left side of the screen. A configuration option should be offered to allow a user to set the thumbnail toggle off by default.

  14. Add configuration option to hide the right-hand sidebar automatically

    When a file is opened, the right-hand sidebar is open by default. My preference is to have it closed, so I must close it each time. Please add a configuration option that would allow for users to set that sidebar closed at startup by default.

  16. boxcn.net link from Box Drive

    Looking forward an option to setup Box Drive to generate shared links with the boxcn.net URL by default.
    We heavily work with factories in China and for them to access shared files, we need to modify URL from "box.com" to "boxcn.net" manually everytime when we generate links from Box Drive.
    Note: we know we can generate "boxcn.net" links from web platform when we login via boxcn.net. We are specifically looking for a feature to setup Box Drive links to be "boxcn.net".

  17. 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.

  18. Working on same file simultaneously

    Possibility in Box Drive - (and also in any other application (online, app,..))- to lock a file (e.g. Excel file) automatically as soon as one user is in the document.
    Therefore, if the next user wants to open the same file while one user is already working on it, it gets immediately a message like "Read only". As soon as the user is out of the file, and no user has opened the file, whoever wants to open it, can open it without any warnings in editor mode.

  19. Checking last accessed date and user on folders

    Adding a feature where you are able to see the last time a certain folder was accessed along with the name of the person who accessed it. Similar to how it's done with google drive. This will help companies strengthen their security over data shared on Box Drive as this will allow them to keep track of who's accessing the files/folders. Especially when it comes to collaborators and shared links, you will be able to keep track of who has accessed these folders and when.

  20. Browser to open into the Finder window

    I love the way in the Finder window you can click to view on the Box.com browser...it would be great if there was a way vice versa on the Box.com browser to open into the Finder window!
