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

  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. 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…

  4. 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.

    For Office files stored in Box, we are enabling the capability coauthor in real-time with collaborators. This will eliminate issues that arise when creating conflict copies. For other files types that do not support coauthoring, we do not have a feature planned on our roadmap, to notify users when the file is locked outside of the lock icon that is displayed on the file in the Explorer/Finder view. 

    We will place this in our backlog as we continue evaluating ideas to improve Box Drive.

  5. 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…

  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. Sort Field Preference in Settings

    My files and folders are all indexed with numbers. It would be helpful to always sort files and folders by name to keep the indexing order. However, Box keeps sorting by the "Updated" field, which completely messes up the indexing order. Is it possible to have a Sort Preferences in Settings so one could select which field should be the default for sorting?

    Thanks.

  8. Save file preferences

    The classification of my preferences of how I want the files to appear are not saved and you have to be changing it every so often, it is quite annoying

    La clasificacion de mis preferencias de como quiero que aparezcan los archivos no se guardan y hay que estar cambiandolo a cada rato es bastante molesto

  9. Moving from Box Drive now deletes instead of copies

    When moving a file from Box Drive to another volume like your computer, it now removes the file from BOX altogether. Prior to the latest update to the platform, it used to make a copy by default.

    We use BOX as a file server and this opens up the potential for accidental deletion. Making the source folders read-only doesn't work either because we have to be able to edit contents on BOX.

    Can you provide the option in a setting or elsewhere to turn on forced copy by default when dragging files from BOX to another Volume?

  10. Adding a function to manage tasks in BoxDrive

    Since we mainly use BoxDrive, we would like to be able to conduct task management from BoxDrive as well.
    Specifically, we would like to be able to check the tasks assigned to us and the tasks we have sent from Box Drive, just like "My Tasks List" and "Tasks Inbox" on Box Web.

    <BoxDriveでタスク管理できる機能の追加>
    BoxDriveをメインで利用しているため、タスク管理もBoxDrive上から実施できるようにしてほしい。
    具体的には、Box Web上の「My Tasks List」や「Tasks Inbox」のように、自分に割り当てられているタスクや自分が送信したタスクを、Box Driveからも確認できるようにしてほしい。

  11. More detailed error handling with sync errors

    We have a user who is on Box Drive that has had several sync errors come up on his Box Drive client over the last week, but when he clicks on the info icon next to the s"9 items with sync errors message" it just gives them a generic error message with no details about which files can't be synced or how long they haven't been synced. I don't know if there's an existing solution for this, but thought I'd mention it here.

  13. 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.

  14. Enable end users to group shared folders

    Please enable end users to group shared folders. Sometimes folders are shared with you in piecemeal manner. It would be nice if the end users can group these folders Marie Kondo style.

  15. 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?

  18. Date and Time of uploading file on BOX

    Hi! I was faced with the problem of file date uploading on display on BOX.

    I know that usually, BOX shows "Today" or "Yesterday" if the file was uploaded to BOX today or yesterday. It's clear, but, I need to see the exact date displayed with numbers. For example, I want to see that the file was uploaded to BOX "18 of May, 2022" instead of "Today".

    Moreover, I even can't see the time when the file was uploaded to BOX. I work with the client in different time zones (the difference is 10 hrs) and sometimes it is really…

  19. 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…

  20. Pause and Resume Uploads or downloads to or from Box

    The ability to Pause Downloads + Uploads so that Resource intensive tasks on other software can be carried out on a single computer/device without being slowed down by Box Transferring large amounts of data to/from the device to cloud. The ability to resume Downloads + Uploads after resource intensive tasks are completed.

    Not everyone/every company has the budget to have expensive "workhorse" computers or Gigabit internet (not to mention a lot of places dont even have gigabit internet. (Im lucky enough to have access to both where I work and I STILL run into issues from time to time)
