    With this enhancement our focus is to provide users with the visibility into the file state. It will cover automatic file locking/unlocking and providing notifications when others have the file locked. This functionality will be scoped to only specific applications, with our main priority being the MSFT Office apps first (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Stay tuned!

  4. Make admin console reports (Folders & Files, Collaborations, Shared Links) run at scale

    I saw on the Community site that there is a 10 million item limit, but my company has way more items than that. It is important for us to have these reports for security audits.

  5. Shared With Me - Folder Management for Collaboration Folders

    We would like to have a "Shared with Me" folder for any folders we have been collaborated into.

    We continually get feature requests for Box to allow a way to organize content shared with me. For example, I'd like to create a "Shared with me" folder that all the content shared with me could be organized into.
    I envision this could happen in one of a few ways and there would need to be some determination how much control the end user has....

    Option 1:
    - Allow end users to check a setting that would create a folder called "Shared…

    We have a feature on the roadmap that will allow you to organize content that you own or that has been shared with you into private groupings. We are also looking at the best way to solve for additional shared with me features based on common customer pain points

  6. Increase maximum file size beyond 32GB

    Requests to extend maximum single file upload size beyond 32GB. Please comment with use cases and file size limit of request.

  7. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  8. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

    not planned  ·  Kyle Williams responded

    We are currently not planning to implement this feature and will continue to prevent all Box Drive results from appearing in Explorer/Finder searches.

    Box Drive does not download the all of the metadata (File name, folder structure, etc.) of your Box content. Instead, it is downloaded on demand and then evicted when it is no longer relevant. This eviction process is not visible to users and it is not easily predictable. This would cause the search results in Explorer/Finder to be inconsistent for users – sometimes they would find a file and other times they may not if the metadata and file were evicted.

    We have chosen not to download all of the metadata (and then keep it up to date with changes) as this can result in a large performance, storage and bandwidth tax which is not scalable – especially in environments where users interface with millions of files/folders.

  10. Break waterfall permissions

    Allow for restricted permissions within a shared folder (so permissions are not inherited from the parent folder)

  11. Folder-Level Activity Reporting: Ability to Report on Activity and Access Stats at the Folder Level

    Add an 'export' option available for folder Owners & Co-Owners to export various items at the folder level (meaning in the webapp - not the Admin Console) for--Activity (uploads, download, moves, previews, create shared link, invite collaborators, etc.) in the folder--Collaborations--Etc.

  12. Drive: Notifications when there is simultaneous editing happening

    When multiple people are simultaneously editing in Drive multiple versions save as different copies. There should be notifications so people don't have to lock files to let others know they are editing a document.

  13. Box Drive search for specific folder

    Currently there is not way to search for a folder name offline. All you can search for is a file name. This can be problematic if you have multiple files with the same name, but just in different locations. Suggest being able to search for file name and then open file.

  15. Box Drive: Change cache location

    It would be really awesome to allow the box drive cache location to be placed somewhere other than C:\Users<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Box\Box\cache, say on on a separate volume that doesn't consume space on C: (boot / application drive). Ideally I would like to place it on my second ssd D:

  17. Support External Users in Box Groups

    Currently only Managed Users can be added to Groups in Box. This request is to allow both Managed and (NEW) External Users to be added as members of Groups to easier bulk collaborator management.

    We are beginning to develop solutions that will allow external users to be placed in groups. We’ll post an update when this feature officially makes it onto our roadmap.

  18. Automatically Lock & Unlock when editing from Web App using Box Edit

    CURRENT UX: User must remember to manually lock and unlock each file once done editing, which is a subpar experience for the user.DESIRED UX: When using 'open with' via the webapp (Box Edit), the file is auto-locked (via a prompt), and when the user closes out of the file, it is automatically unlocked.

    We understand the request, but unfortunately this is not on the near-term roadmap. We are currently prioritizing automatically locking/unlocking files on Box Drive for Office files on Windows. We will revisit this feature in the future.

  19. User Trash -- Ability to search within Trash from the Web for end users

    Since Box has a public-facing Search API that allows searching within the Trash, the Web App should also make use of this functionality and allow users to search in Trash from the Web. API documentation here: https://docs.box.com/reference#searching-for-content

  20. box drive sync progress

    When syncing large amounts of data or many items into Box, I don't have a number of items remaining unless I try to log out of Box drive while it is uploading. Could we take that information and put it into the Box Drive icon like it was displayed in Box Sync?

    This feature was delivered in Box Drive v2.20!

    Users can easily view upload and download progress in the new Transfers UI (accessible via the system tray on Windows or menu bar on Mac).
