Syncing bookmarks and Windows shortcuts between Box Drive and online.
To better organize my personal Box files and share with teams, I've saved my files in the team folder and used a Windows shortcut (in Box Drive) in my personal Box folder to link files/folders elsewhere on Box. Box Drive doesn't sync Window's shortcuts so these links are lost when working online. The workaround online is to use the bookmark function, using file/folder URLs to create shortcuts. It would be great if bookmarks or window's shortcuts synced between online and Box Drive modes. At the moment I'm having to bookmark online and shortcut on Drive to link up files and folders. This is double the work and if I delete my Cache, the short cuts on Box Drive will be lost. Is there a better approach or solution to this problem?

We struggle with the fact that bookmarks don't appear in windows explorer through Box Drive and conversely, windows shortcuts don't appear in the browser version. I am very much looking forward to a solution to this issue!

I really wish Box would recognise the usefulness of being able to create a link to other box files and folders. Using bookmarks for this is a pretty poor experience IMHO.
