  2. 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:

  4. Increase the maximum number of Shield Classifications beyond 25 so that we can classify each clients content to prevent mis-sharing

    I would like to see the ability to add Shield Classifications per client - with the appropriate access policy (restricting to client email domain) we could avoid any possibility to overshare when inviting the wrong clients into a folder or sharing a shared link - There is a maximum number of classifications of 25 so could this be extended to facilitate this use case/control.

    It is absolutely a valid use case. We don’t plan to leverage security classification to address it but will think about alternative solution to achieve the same purpose.

  5. 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.

  6. Smaller icons for Box Drive on windows

    The "status" icons on folders/files in Box Drive cover up 80% of the thumbnail for the file (or folder itself). This happens when explorer is set to list or details view.

    This makes scanning a folder with many documents for a particular file type extremely difficult, as there's not much visual distinction between excel, word, and ppt docs when they're all covered by one of the Box Drive syncing status icons. The PPT/Excel/Word logos are completely covered with just a vague hint of color peeking out.

    It would be ideal to figure out some way to make these icons smaller,…

  7. Automatic classification based on filename

    We would like to be able to automatically classify certain files based on filename. We have files of a certain type, that always have the same file extension, that are always high-value assets for us. To be able to automatically classify these and change permissions around external sharing for them would be a big win for us. Without it, we either have to educate our users to always classify these manually, or be content with the possibility of them being outside our security preferences. However, we should also be able to un-classify them, in the rare event that one of…

    Select folders to sync with Box Drive rather than having to sync all folders.

    Thanks for the feedback! Users already have the ability to selectively sync (mark content for offline access) today in Box Drive. What I believe you’re asking for is a curated view of content you select to show up in Box Drive. That’s something we’re considering as we think about how to solve the content sprawl issue in Box Drive.

  9. bulk manage Shared Links

    Provide a way for all shared links in an account to have their permission levels / access levels / expiry dates modified in bulk, rather than having to change each one individually which is extremely time consuming for large doc sets.

  10. Send a "here's how your items are shared" report to each user periodically

    One of the most common sources of security breaches is due to a user inadvertently sharing an item more broadly or for longer than they intended.

    A simple way to help limit those sorts of security breaches would be for Box to email every user a report periodically (configurable by the admin, but roughly monthly) that said "Here's how everything you own is shared with other people, and here's a link to the KB article that'll tell you how to fix it if it's not what you want", then showed a report of their folders, files, and shared links, with…

  14. Force Box Drive to sync status with Box every time file is touched .

    for example: User A locks a file, User B opens the file in drive (the lock status still hasn’t sync’d down user’s machine yet)
    User B edits the file and tries to save but Drive will show that it wasn’t able to save back the change to box and creates a problematic file.
    User B closes the file, and then reopens the file. The change User B made still shows up.
    Onedrive checks for the latest status every time it opens a file or when you try to save a file it will sync status with what is in the…

  16. Allow beta, 1st party, and 3rd party app whitelisting for Groups in addition to users

    When Box launches a beta for a feature, we can now opt-in to the beta directly from the Admin Console - which is great!

    Currently there are 4 options to enable:
    -- Enable for all managed users
    -- Enable for select managed users (whitelist)
    -- Enable for all managed users except specific users (blacklist)
    -- Disable for all managed users

    This request is to allow admins to select Groups for the whitelist in addition to Users which are already supported.

    We are currently developing solutions to enable 1st / 3rd party apps and specific enterprise settings by groups of users in the enterprise. We will provide an update when this makes it onto the roadmap.

  17. Need Tags in Mac Finder to be Supported in Box Drive

    After installing Box Drive, you have to re-tag all of your folders in Finder. As if that is not annoying enough, the folders you tag (colored circles) don't show up when you click on the tags in the sidebar of Finder. Bottom line, Box Drive needs to support Tags in Mac OS' finder just like the Box Sync did.

  18. Log Access Policy Violations

    Box currently only logs successful actions. We would like to see when a user attempts to share content that is blocked by Shield Access policies. From a DLP and insider threat perspective this would be huge in determining what people are attempting to do, not just what they are successful at doing.

  19. File Request Link should be modified by Admin or Co-admin

    Currently, only file request link creator can delete the created link. But, it should be controlled by at least Admin/Co-admin as a security stand point of view.

  20. File request link and folder metadata in Box embed framework

    Please expose file request link and folder metadata in Box embed framework that is leveraged in the Salesforce integration. This allows Salesforce users to have additional differentiation beyond what salesforce has and would open up our CCM use cases for onboarding as well as some records management.
