  1. Add remote app support functionality like OneDrive is currently offering

    OneDrive now offers support for starting in background for RemoteApp. I tried the same regkey for Box but it didn't work, can the same functionality be added for Box Drive?

  2. Box Drive performance improvement request when using VDI

    The VDI is experiencing operational delays when using Box Drive, and this is affecting our business.
    It was found that the delay was caused by a large number of disk I/Os.
    We checked the Box Drive logs and found that Box was reflecting 1,000 to 2,000 operation logs on Box to each user every morning.
    Since the above operations occur simultaneously for all users, there is a large load on the infrastructure.
    Please improve performance.

    「VDI利用時におけるBox Drive性能改善リクエスト」

    Box Drive利用時のVDIで操作遅延が発生しており業務影響が出ております。
    操作遅延の要因としては多数のディスクI/Oによって発生していることが判明しており、
    Box Driveのログを確認した所、Boxから毎朝1000~2000のBox上での操作ログを各ユーザーへ反映されていました。
    上記操作が全てのユーザで同時に発生する為、インフラストラクチャに大きな負荷が掛かっています。
    性能改善をお願いします。

  3. Request to improve synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive"

    Request to improve synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive"

    We would like to request an improvement in the synchronization speed between Box Web UI and BoxDrive so that they can be synchronized within 5 seconds.
    Our investigation of the synchronization speed is based on the following items.

    Pattern (3) Upload to Box Drive and check the screen update on WebUI: Result: No automatic update even after waiting for more than 5 minutes.
    Pattern (5) Delete the file on WebUI and check the update on Box Drive: Result: 20 seconds
    Pattern 6: Delete the file on the Box Drive…

  4. Unify move and copy behavior between BoxDrive and the Web browser.

    There is a detrimental effect caused by the fact that BoxDrive and the Web browser have different specifications for the operation of "move and copy," which is a basic operation of Box (it is actually upload and download).
    In particular, the fact that Shield's Access Policy and Classification Labels "maintain the original labels when moved and copied" is a major reason to use that feature.
    However, BoxDrive does not maintain labels, which does not lead to enhanced security or control of usage.
    Since there are many users who use BoxDrive as their main application, we would like to see the…

  6. offline files and selective sync

    I would like to see the ability to mark files and folders for local or offline storage. Currently box drive allows for only the folder to be marked offline or downloaded locally. When I don't need to have a file downloaded anymore there is not a way for me to mark them offline. I have tried marking the folder offline but that doesn't work to make the files I want offline. Additionally, this would cause all files that I do want locally to become offline. Dropbox currently has the ability to selectively sync the files and or folders that I…

  7. Show who has locked a file in Box Drive

    In the Webapp you are able to see who has locked a file, in Drive you cannot see this unless you navigate to the web. Heavy Drive users/customers require this information in the Drive UI

  8. Please automatically close the tab of the browser we used to log in after completing the login process.

    The login method from Box Drive has been changed to using a web browser.
    Currently, the behavior is that the tab of the web browser used for login authentication remains after login is completed.
    The administrator is troubled by the many inquiries from end users asking if closing this tab will cause any problems.

     Reference:
     https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/18240130435219

    [Proposal 1]
    Please automatically close the tab of the browser we used to log in after completing the login process.

    If realization of [Proposal 1] is not possible, please display the following:

  9. Synchronize Single Files in folders

    We want the ability to synchronize individual files in a folder to the desktop rather than entire folders, allowing us to accelerate what is available in the WebUI faster.

  10. Box Drive app more easily accessible

    It would be convenient to have an install Box link located in the Help menu or my Account icon similar to Dropbox. Even still, when I navigate to the Box App Center I have to go to Box Drive, scroll down to the respective OS and install. It sounds tedious but I needed to install Box and Dropbox on a bunch of computers and was reminded how the Box user experience still doesn't hold up to Dropbox. Neither is perfect and both have great features but I always feel like Box makes me take steps I don't need or doesn't…

  11. Open in Box Drive

    Ability to click a link that opens the current web box folder on the local Box Drive. This would allow for quick local file editing when you navigated to the folder via web Box.

  12. I would like shortcut files created on Box Drive to be reflected on Box Web as well.

    I am aware that shortcut files (.lnk) created in Box Drive (on Explorer) are ignored as a file type and cannot be synchronized.
    However, in my work, I use Box Drive a lot and sometimes create shortcuts, but I can't share them because they are not synced, and they are deleted when I log out of the system.
    I feel this kind of specification is very inconvenient.
    I would love to see you respond to make this happen.

    (Japanese)
    Box Drive(エクスプローラー上)で作成したショートカットファイル(.lnk)は、
    無視されるファイルの種類として対象となっており同期が出来ないことは認識してます。
    しかしながら業務上、Box Driveの利用が多くショートカットの作成することがありますが、
    同期されないことで共有もできず、またログアウトしたことで削除されてしまう。
    このような仕様だと大変不便に感じてます。
    実現に向けて是非対応してほしい。

  13. make linked files visible in Finder on desktop

    Linked files are only visible in the web version of Box, and not visible on the desktop with Box Drive. This defeats the purpose of having linked files since the majority of users are accessing Box through Box Drive on their desktop. Please update!!!

  14. Add functionality to view all folders set to "Make available offline"

    I would love to be able to see which folders are currently set to "make available offline". I need free up space regularly.

    Or a feature to see how much space box is taking up on my machine and what folders are using the space. Similar to storage on a Mac.

  19. Use Relay to copy or move based on filename

    I would love to use box relay for a simple workflow. Is it possible to build a relay workflow that when a file is uploaded to a folder to look for a phrase in the filename and copy/move to a subfolder?

    Ex: Uploaded Filename contains the word "Home" -> Move to Home folder

    or Uploaded Filename contains the word "Work"-> move to work folder

  20. I would like to see functionality added to the terminate_sessions API to delete cache information.

    When an administrator deletes BoxDrive session information, the cache remains.
    Even if an administrator deletes BoxDrive session information using the terminatesessions API, the cache will remain on the user side because this API is different from normal logoff.
    In this situation, even if the user loses the authority to handle the data, the data remains at hand, which may cause a security incident by a malicious user.
    Therefore, we would like to add a function to delete cache information when the terminate
    sessions API is executed.
    In the above difficult case (because deleting the client's cache seems difficult due…
