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

    Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!

  2. Enhanced Lock/Unlock on Box Drive for CAD files

    I hope the Enhanced lock/unlock experience, which is currently only available for Office files, be made available for CAD files and others as well.

  3. Display warning if a document is open

    Display a warning similar to read-only if another team member has a file open. Currently this is not possible without code installed at the individual PC level and there is no solution with MAC (just confirmed with support). The conflicting versions can be frustrating for teams and the tiny lock icon is just not a large enough warning when opening from box drive.

  4. A snapshot of contents within a Box drive folder

    Have you ever looked at a top-level Box folder and felt overwhelmed by the prospect of having to dig through and drill down to every sub-folder just to know what the contents are?

    Do you get discouraged at the thought of looking for a single file that could possibly exist way down the rabbit hole of Box folders and sub-folders?

    Would you rather have the ability to glance at a snapshot of an entire Box folder and all the sub-folders and files that exist within it?

    A simple yet effective solution is a "tree directory" view. This is a feature…

  5. UI enhancements to indicate moving/copying activity in progress

    When moving/copying files and folders in BoxDrive, I want to be able to see visually that an operation is taking place.

    Currently, BoxWeb displays a green dialog at the top of the screen when you move or copy files or folders,
    but However, BoxDrive has an explorer-like feel, so I don't think this kind of display appears even when a move/copy is performed.

  6. Box Drive support MacOS Monterey

    Box does not support Box Drive aliases with Mac OS Monterey. We need this feature back so users don't remove/delete files and folders from Box by mistake.

  7. Ability to manually update a Box Drive version (menu option)

    I would like to see version update added to the right-click menu of the app so that I can manually update when the latest version of BoxDrive is released.

    Currently, Box Edit and Box Drive are designed to automatically update their versions, but depending on the user, the timing of implementation may be delayed or there may be cases where the version is not automatically updated.
    In order to deal with this, we have to uninstall and reinstall the tool, which is very inconvenient.
    Therefore, I would like to see version update added to the right-click menu of the app…

  8. View Owner/Creator of Files in Box Drive

    We would like the ability to display accurate information about the Owner/creator of files within Box Drive for Windows. The Owner column in Windows was used prior to our migration to Box to show who originally created the file for a folder all in a single glance. Although Box.com shows the upload history of individual files, it's a manual process of viewing each file-- a pain point-- compared to the table view of File Explorer with the Owner column displaying. Currently, within Box Drive/File Explorer, the Owner column is empty. This would be useful for the users to know who…

  9. Provide appropriate warning before moving a folder to a different owner in Box Drive UI

    In Box Drive, moving folder to a different owner looks like it works (a folder dragged to new Box location in Box Drive/Finder appears in the new location), but it actually fails and an OS notification pops up only briefly. The suggested fix (if the user notices the problem and can find the message about it) is also not ideal -- Box wants you to manually move the folder back yourself, but if you don't see this message right away then you might not remember where you moved it from.

    Ideally, this would warn the user about the change in…

  10. Box Drive search to mirror Web UI

    You can't specify details in Box Drive search.
    I want to use the same function as WEB UI on the search screen of Drive.

  11. Auto lock/unlock for read-only file.

    Currently, BoxDrive works with AutoLockUnlock=1 as below.

    1. When we open a read-only settings(Windows OS file property), it is locked automatically.
    2. And then, when we close the file, the read-only setting is gone.

    Please improve as below.

    1. When we open a read-only settings(Windows OS file property), it is not locked automatically.
    2. And then, when we close the file, the read-only setting keeps.

  12. Dragging files or folders out of BOX makes a copy

    With the recent update to BOX Drive, when you move something from BOX to your computer it removes it from BOX. It used to make a copy by default. We use BOX as a shared file server and this change allows for accidental deletion.

    Can you please add the ability to make this copy rather than move the file, only when moving out of BOX onto the computer or an outside volume?

  13. Ability to view the contents of the login page on the login screen on Box Drive

    Currently, the login page settings that exist in the tenant settings are only visible in the web browser, not in Box Drive.
    Since many of our tenants use Box Drive, we would like to display the contents of the login page on the login screen on Box Drive as well.

    (In Japanese)
    現在、テナント設定に存在するログインページ設定は、Webブラウザ上でのみ表示され、Box Driveには表示されません。
    我々のテナントではBox Driveを利用しているユーザが多いため、Box Drive上のログイン画面にもログインページの内容を表示したい。

  14. Folder of aliases to Box files for sharing

    In order to supply a group of files to a collaborator such as an outside contractor, one must copy existing files into a new folder. We need a way to gather the ALIAS /SHORTCUT to multiple files that can be placed in a single shared folder.

  15. Restore Box Drive behavior on MacOS when it mounted as an external hard drive with on-demand file streaming

    Product: Box Drive Version 2.24.193 installed 2021-10-12 on MacOS 11.6

    Newest release 2021-10-12 has removed the "external hard drive behavior" and on-demand file streaming feature (as illustrated in first 2 minutes of https://youtu.be/t7tPs1naUtY), which was THE reason I use Box. Now it behaves like OneDrive: (1) viewing Box file requires full download, (2) downloaded file remains on computer until manual removal, (3) dragging and dropping into Box folder literally moves file rather than copying file. These behaviors make life miserable and are the reasons I do not use OneDrive. Now Box has removed the sole reason I want to…

  16. Specify box drive location and cache location

    Enable the option for users to specify Box Drive location.
    Changing it in the registry is way too advanced for most users and easily fixable with a build-in feature.
    Enable the ability to specify Cache location is also a must-have.
    Files flooding my C: drive is annoying to say the least, espacially when working with big files.

  18. Add iOS Shortcuts integration

    Simply add iOS shortcuts integration like your competitor. Save to box, append to file in box function ecc would be a great feature. The only reason that I’m not using your great service is the missing of this integration.

  19. [Box Drive's ability to require re-authentication when changing networks]

    After authenticating Box Drive, we want it to detect that the network has changed (For example, changes in IP addresses, etc.) and re-authenticate. If this is not possible, I would like to see the retention period for authentication information shortened (up to 24 hours).

    This is because, although only authorized terminals can be authenticated, Box cannot be used from unauthorized networks.

  20. Add account info to Box application window

    One of our users recently asked the following:

    "In the Box drive alert window, the Box Drive Settings gear icon doesn't
    do anything useful. Please add an actual settings window with basic
    information like file space used, buttons for pause/restart syncing, etc.

    The Box Drive window is an alert style window that disappears anytime a
    mouse is clicked or any other window is interacted with. This is the
    case in Windows 7 through Windows 11. It would be better if Box Drive
    had an actual application window like most other apps."

    I know that manual syncing isn't possible yet in…
