  2. Make file type icon easily visible to left of file name. Folders, too.

    File type icon to left of file name overshadowed by status icon (cloud, green check).

  5. Please include the Box Sync app to use Windows 10's Metered connection setting. Disabling box sync on metered connection (Cell Hot Spots)

    Give the user the option to enable or disable syncing on a metered connection. A lot of the time I want to sync while at home or the office. But I dont need to download 500mb of co-worker changes while I just needed to check my email.

  6. Sync parent folder structure, so that Box Sync retains heirarchy

    When granting access to a specific folder, the user's desktop only syncs that folder, not its parent. This results in the folder sitting directly in the highest level folder, rather than in a subfolder where it belongs. The user should see the full file path in Box Sync.

    e.g. if granting user access to folder '/Apples' located in '/Fruit', the user should see 'Box Sync/Fruit/Apples', whereas they only see Box Sync/Apples because they do not have access to the overall '/Fruit' folder. This is the incorrect file path.

  7. [Fix] Poor support for moving drive and recognizing existing content

    I had to disconnect a drive and Box sync broke and has been a massive pain to get working again. When the drive was reconnected, Box couldn't reuse the old folder, and once it started a new folder, I didn't appear to have the option to change it.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled Box sync so I could point it at the original directory it used with all the files still in place. It did not recognize any of the files. Instead, it renamed all the folders, downloaded duplicates of everything, and then ran out of space on my cloud storage…

  8. move box sync deleted items to local trash

    Ask: When content is deleted from local Box Sync folder, content is moved to local user's trash folder.
    Reason: This is good if you ever delete content from box sync that has not yet been saved to Box's servers yet. It would at least end up in the local trash for recovery.

  11. Allow Box sync in Server version OS

    Since there are a lot of application that rely on UNC path, and are run in server, supporting box sync in server version will be very userful.

  12. Sharing folders takes too many clicks

    It takes too many steps to share. When box first came it was awesome- 1 click to create a folder and 1(2?) clicks to share. Now it is 5 (five!!!!) steps to be able to put the folder link into "pasting" into email position. Why are you yet another company who along with increased success make it worse for its users? And contacting you regarding this issue is such a hassle- there is no direct "contact" information to voice this issue. That communicates that you really show no interest in us users.

  15. Show "Last Updated By" in Box Sync

    In BOX.com, there is a field to show the “last updated by”, which shows the name of the collaborator who last modified the file.

    Would like the same feature to be available in Box Sync. We would like to tag the filename with the modified by collaborator via a script.

  16. Sync from parent of View Path Collab

    Currently cannot sync a folder from the parent of a View Path Collab. We want to use the API to add collaborations and keep the context but also let our users Sync.

  17. Enhanced Locking Experience on Sync (mimic file server experience) - Auto-Lock & Unlock

    Adapt the Box Sync / Box for Desktop lock/unlock experience to mimic the standard locking UX that users are familiar with from Windows file servers. Example screenshot from file server UX: https://cloud.box.com/s/4px71vfralrlpnj6x9sdeoquyxdellg6Key Components:-Pop-up upon double-clicking a file to ask user if they'd like to check out (lock) a file or open a read-only version-Auto-unlock upon closing the file

  18. Allow Auto-Provisioning from Box Sync App

    Currently, users who get Box Sync pushed to their computer (so they see the pop-up Box Sync login page) but haven't gone to the webapp to auto-provision their account end up not being able to log into Box Sync as the Sync login flow does NOT support auto-provisioning. Request: Allow a user to auto-provision their account from any endpoint, including Box Sync.
