Box Drive Sync Delay Indicator
Box Drive is supposed to mirror the files on the server. But we experience delays of five minutes to over an hour between when we complete an upload to Box and when other users can see the file in Box Drive. We end up having to use the web portal more frequently to download files rather than waiting for them to appear, which creates version issues and nullifies the most attractive feature of Box Drive. The old Box Sync software used red or green dots to indicate if a file had synced. Is there a way to add such an indicator to Box Drive so we can tell if a file is available on Box but not yet reflected in Box Drive?

Yes this or a force sync is a must! After working on files online or creating files in Box Drive on another computer they don't show up for a while on other computers with Drive. This makes the experience painful. Please add in a way to see if files are delayed syncing and force a sync or maybe an option to have instant syncing.
