Sharing File paths with others in my organization on box drive
Before my company switched to box we had a mac server. When directing people to files on this server we used a utility called PathSnagger where it copied the file path which you could then email to someone and it would become a clickable hyperlink. When you click it, it took you directly to that location on the server. It was great to be able to do this.
With box, we cannot do that any longer with this utility because it copies the fully qualified path to your local computer. file:///Users/[username]/Library/CloudStorage/Box/[folder name]/[file or folder name] and since the recipient is on their own computer, the path breaks.
We also all are using box drive to work locally rather than in a browser.
I know we can copy or email a shared link to people, but that takes you to view it in a browser.
What would be AMAZING if at all possible, would be for box to either be able to detect if a user has box drive installed and when they click the shared link, it instinctively knew you had it installed and throw a popup that says, "Would you like to open this link in box drive on your computer?" (or something similar) or if the browser view could identify that the viewer has box drive installed and include a button in the browser view that says something along the lines of "reveal in box drive"
I know that Zoom can do something like this. when you click a zoom link to join a meeting, it takes you to your browser and shows a popup "Do you want to allow this page to open “zoom.us.app”?" and you can click Allow and it launches zoom.
