  1. Ability to force sync of Box Drive

    Currently, Drive relies on event poll for updating cached contents, and if events (updates on web) are not picked up by Drive in a timely manner, then local contents get outdated (out of sync with web). As a workaround, we want the ability to force sync of a selected folder (maybe add a right click menu to force sync/refresh cache).

  2. "inactive" or "archive" flag maps to less-expensive storage

    FEATURE IDEA:
    Provide ability to flag/classify files and folders in a way that allows Box to move them to a less-expensive storage offering on the back-end. This can be referred to as an "inactive" or "archive" flag.

    BENEFITS & BACKGROUND

    During the Box Higher Education Community Monthly Open Discussion on January 11th, an idea to submit to Box Pulse was formed, and seemed to have support from all in attendance (25-30 institutions).

    Box acknowledges that there is a growing concern around constantly increasing storage, and the costs associated with it. The majority of files stored in Box are perceived (or…

  3. We want to update the sync on the Box Drive in real time.

    The data edited by myself on the Box Drive will be reflected, but I would like the synchronization to be updated in real time for data edited/saved by other users.

  4. Open file from UI Elements without approval

    Ability to open a file from UI Elements Open With with Box Edit without being prompted to Approve/Deny to proceed.

    Currently, every time a file is opened from UI Elements, Box Edit displays the prompt and asks the user to Approve/Deny before the user can start locally opening and editing the file. This adds friction to user experience, and we want the option to not display this prompt and auto-approve the file open from UI Elements

  5. Support for Regular Expression (REGEX) for Auto-Classification in Shield

    We would like the ability to support Regular Expressions (REGEX) for creating auto-classifications rules in Shield. This would greatly enhance how much we can leverage the capability

  7. Shield classification user permissions

    Request to make classification application settings specific to the classification. Currently, the setting for who can apply/remove a classification is for all classifications, but there are cases where it would be helpful that a classification to be only applied by owners and other where co-owner, or even editor would be allowed to apply certain classifications.

    Examples:
    1. A classification tied to a Shield access control rule that only owners can apply or remove
    2. A classification tied to a Shield access control rule that owner/co-owners can apply or remove
    3. A classification identifying a type of content that owners/co-owner/editors can…

  10. Enable sync of files with lnk extension through Box Drive

    Box Drive will not sync files with a .lnk extension. We would like to be able to sync these as they are valuable in certain circumstances and are not hidden/system files.

  11. Create a clear login "button" or link for non-managed users on the company SSO longin screen.

    The ability to further customize our company login screen (SSO) to include a more prominent way for non-manged users, our clients, to login to Box.

    The "Continue" button (continue to our organizations SSO) is prominently shown and many of our clients (non-managed users) who receive links that new files have been shared will follow the link to the login screen and click "continue."

    In addition, the confusion is multiplied because many of our clients use the same SSO provider and thus they get an error message when they enter their enterprises SSO credentials.

    Not having a clear differentiation between our…

  12. Custom collaboration expiration periods for individual folder collaborators

    Currently, the only options for collaboration expiration on a folder is set at an enterprise level.

    The request is multipart, for the options to
    1) Set a custom collaboration expiration period at the folder level only (regardless of what the enterprise setting is)
    2) Set different expiration periods (e.g. 30 days vs 60 days) for different collaborators or groups within the folder

  13. Update the the login page for SSO customers to mirror non-SSO customers page.

    When users or collaborators visit Box from the customer's account, they get confused when they get directed to their SSO page and not the login page.

    A suggestion is to have the user input their username before getting redirected to the SSO page or make the “not a part of COMPANY?” a bigger option and more visible for the user.

  14. @Mention Someone When Replying to an Annotation in a Box Note

    iIt would be nice to be able to @mention someone in a Annotation within the Box Note. I know you can do it in the comments, but if a note is lengthy and you want to put someone's nose right to where you want them to look (or a tasks you've assigned them to), this would be nice to have.
