  1. Error message when sharing due to inclusion of URL in message

    When sharing a file or folder, the optional message will trigger an error if the user includes a URL in the message text. Instead of just validating the message body in context, the validation cancels the entire sharing popup interface and all of the email addresses that the user carefully entered and the entire message body that the user carefully crafted is lost. Why not just prompt the user to not type a URL and leave the sharing popup interface intact for correction? Also, an email address included in the message body is apparently considered a URL, which is not…

  4. Change login flow of desktop apps so it does not use default browsers

    Box Notes also uses the same login flow as Box Drive - which uses the default browsers to login (IE for Windows, Safari for Mac).

    We have Windows and our Idp cannot use IE for the login process. We would like to request support for using other browsers or a different login process that does not require IE.

  6. Select folders from hard drive to sync with box

    It would be very convenient to have an application that would allow a person to go in from their Windows Explorer to flag folders that already exist on the hard drive that would be synced and updated on Box. I would strongly prefer this to having to sync things the other way around, as I consider my hard drive to be my "home base". For instance, I would like to just right-click on my work folder located on my hard drive, and then select an option that would flag it to be synced with my box account so that any…

  8. Popup

    After I edit a file, a green notification popup is displayed telling me I just edited the file. This popup follows me around and prohibits me from clicking links (edit file e.g.) until I close it. While somewhat minor, it is rather annoying to have to close each popup notification, when moving about and editing multiple files. Thanks.

  12. Make direct download link names editable

    The direct file download link needs to allow for the name to be either changed by the user or better yet... the actual file name. Currently, the direct download link is auto-generated by Box to a random file name (with extension). This function does not work for certain scenarios where you want to host the file on Box and allow for download of a file and retain the filename.

  14. Conflict with the Adobe Photoshop short key (on Windows) Ctrl,Shift,Alt+B

    The short key combination (on Windows) Ctrl,Shift,Alt+B, overrules the Adobe Photoshop version of this combination by opening a Box search window. As I use this combination in Photoshop (to open the black/whit dialogue window) it is often quite annoying that even when working in Photoshop this combination doesn't work as intended. An option to have the possibility to change the short key combination (or another solution) in another would solve this problem. More so because I understand that checking all short keys that are in use in any program is impossible.

  15. Box Drive Should Show Files With Illegal Filenames or Characters

    We need Box Drive to be able to point to the offending error in Windows Explorer or Finder. Click on the offending file, folder is opened and file is selected in Windows Explorer or Finder in order to fix.

    This is not something that we have on the roadmap for the foreseeable future. Notifications were suppressed for these items and we will be investigating different ways to make problem items in general more discoverable.

  16. Support multiple accounts in Windows file explorer.

    As a technology consultant I have multiple business Box accounts. I need to be able to easily access all my Box folders from the Windows desktop not just one at a time. OneDrive and DropBox both offer multiple account support in Windows Explorer. Lack of this support is the main reason I am not recommending Box for many of my corporate customers due to this inconvenience

    We don’t have plans to address this in the short term. We will continue to review this ask in future planning cycles to reconsider!

    Thank you for the suggestion. We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap.
