  2. 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.

    We do not have near-term plans to add this capability right now. You might be able to get a similar effect by using Device Trust on those endpoints and requiring a specific certificate on a device, which is limited to just those groups of users.

  11. Leverage search capabilities in Box for Box Drive

    Our users would like to use some of the functionalities for Box search, like dates and searching within specific folders, in Box Drive.

  13. Box Drive Should Show Files With Illegal Filenames or Characters

    We need Box Drive to be able to point to the offending error in Windows Explorer or Finder. Click on the offending file, folder is opened and file is selected in Windows Explorer or Finder in order to fix.

    This is not something that we have on the roadmap for the foreseeable future. Notifications were suppressed for these items and we will be investigating different ways to make problem items in general more discoverable.

    This is technical not feasible. Microsoft has not enabled the APIs that we need to leverage on mac.

  20. Allow Excel's Shared Workbook feature to work on Box.

    Microsoft Excel has a feature called Shared Workbook that allows multiple users to edit Excel file simultaneously and still migrate each modifications into each others' Excel files.

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/about-the-shared-workbook-feature-49b833c0-873b-48d8-8bf2-c1c59a628534

    Box doesn't support this type of feature, but Google and Dropbox supports to notify users on (Office) file modification status to provide similar feature / user experience.

    While we won’t be building in support for the Shared Workbook feature as requested, we will be providing capabilities in the near-future that will provide more visibility when you open a file that is locked in order to prevent file editing conflicts.
