  1. Top folders in Box Drive should respect top folder restrictions

    We currently have it set to “Only Admin can create and delete first-level folders, file and bookmarks”.

    But it is still possible to create folders in Box Drive and store files within them, but they aren’t actually uploaded to Box (as users do not have permission to create these top level folders), and they are saved locally

  2. Improve online Permissions integrations with Box Drive to local Applications (Excel)

    If a user is a "View only" collaborator in a folder on Box and they attempt to open a file with a program like Excel through Box Drive, they will receive an error message from Box Drive about not having permissions to save changes. This happens even if no changes are made, and the user is left with 'unsynced' files they must reconcile.

    In a similar experience on a "real NTFS" volume, Excel would display "Read-Only" beside the title of the file. No errors would be displayed unless the user attempted to actually save to the directory.

    Excel is not…

  3. Outlook Attach with Box: Improve navigation icons

  5. Publish a changelog of Box Drive updates

    The blog is nothing close to release notes and version history. I’m looking for something more industry standard. Please put that in as a feature request. Knowing, for example when 2.0.70 and 2.1.105 were officially released (date) and the changelog (massaged for general consumption, if not raw) si what these are for and these press releases on the blog are not a replacement for technical info.

  7. Add pdf support in the save to box option

    The "save as" option in Office support pdf extension but this is not included in the "save to box" option. If a user wantss to upload a pdf (originated from office) there are a couple more steps they have to do.

  8. Drive: More granular controls when designating a file as Marked for Offline

    I tried to select particular folders to sync, but found that other folders that I had not selected were then trying to sync. I tried to stop them syncing, to find that then stopped the folders I was trying to sync. After going backwards and forwards a few times, Box Drive crashes.

    I just want this feature to work as it should, syncing just the folders I want and leaving the rest as online access only.

    What is happening is that when you click on a folder to select it and then mark it for offline, it is fine.

    The…

  9. Automatically transfer files based on the file's last modified date

    Desired: A tool that, based on last modified date, (automatically) transfers files to Box before or after a certain date.

    Currently: Users have to manually sort files by last modified date and select files to transfer to Box. For automatic batch transfers from personal machines or file servers, users would have to use a time-based job scheduler tool in conjunction with an FTP client.

  10. Hide/Turnoff Box Drive Error message

    With Box Drive, users are getting many error messages pertaining to incompatible file names. Users would like the ability to prevent continued notification since most of these files do not below to them. Possibly could be handled with a [Dont show again] or [Remove from alerts] check box

    You can disable notifications through OS controls for Box Drive. That being said, we are working on improving error handling in Drive to address the root problems and hopefully lead you to disabling notifications as they are an important part of our UX!

  11. Box Drive: Change icons for syncing vs. synced files

    I honestly think the best solution is to have a smaller icon when the file is synced, and have a larger icon when the file is syncing. You’re assuming the file is synced at all times, so no need for a giant icon to say “yes, it’s synced”.

    However when the file is syncing is when there could be an actual issue, so you could make that icon large to say “hey, this file isn’t up to date here, give us a second.

  13. Search Skill card metadata from Box Drive

    Searching for skills-enabled content, a video for example, in the webapp returns results from the various skill cards such as the transcript and keywords and this is part of what makes skills so valuable and powerful. The same search from Box Drive returns nothing based on skill metadata however so users would instead have to try and search based on other information, such as the filename, etc. As skills becomes more prevalent, the search behavior should be more consistent across interfaces if/when possible.

  14. Add link to file location to problem file report page

    Many users are prevented from troubleshooting their own problem files because they do not navigate to the actual location of the issue, or they do not really know what file has a problem. This is also a very common sense UX improvement (that would be easy to do)

  15. Do not allow users to complete a system logout or shutdown until all items are uploaded to Box.

    We trying to leverage Box Drive to replace home drives for students. They are using Box Drive in their computer labs, but have recently reported that Box Drive will allow a user to log out (or shut down their computer) before all content has been uploaded to Box. I know we have a dialogue box associated with "in progress uploads" when logging out of the Box Drive application specifically. We are requesting an expansion of that logic to prevent users from completing a system logout or shutdown before Drive has a chance to sync all their files.

  17. Increase the number of search results

    Box Drive only returns 25 results, even though there are results more than that. The website returns more than Box Drive.

  18. Add ability to change permission settings for Box Drive to allow the share operation.

    For example, we have a scanner and want to be able to directly scan to the Box Drive folder.
