  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  15. Make Box Drive Mark for Offline (MFO) file accessible when Box Drive not running

    Would like for files in Box Drive that are marked for offline (MFO) to be accessible whether or not Box Drive is currently running (e.g. before Box Drive starts up at login). Currently, offline files are only available after the Box Drive software has loaded -- this poses a problem for files that need to be available at user login time like the user profile files (Desktop/Documents/etc.). Box Sync worked fine for this purpose, but Box Drive MFO does not.

  17. BUG in the move operation: it takes 1000x longer on desktop than on website

    on any desktop moving a file is instant
    on an iphone moving a photo to an album is instant
    therefore we expect instant effect of moving operation
    in box that is not the case : move takes considerable time
    for example I tried to move 200GB on a box drive where all items were online only, first the window appeared trying to enumerate the files, which kept climbing, as if it was doing the move one file at a time
    then, as nothing was happening i stopped the operation
    to test if move was a copy+delete like on dropbox i…

  20. Auto deleting files from my desktop once they are moved into box

    Hi- question on moving files. Say I create a document on my desktop and then drag and drop it into box. The original document on my desktop is not deleted. I would like this to happen automatically so I am not editing the most recent file. Is this an account preference with box or with with my computer?

    Example: I create a document file on my desktop just by opening up a Microsoft Word document. I then finish the document file and drag and drop into my box drive on my hard drive, but the file still exists on my…
