  1. Add faster playback speed for audio files (1.1-2x)

    Pretty self explanatory, would allow for optimal audiobook/podcast/Mp3 playback

  2. Show Metadata in Box Drive

    Metadata is currently not visible in Box Drive. Is there a way to show/apply/change metadata without going to the web interface?

  3. video thumbnail hover preview

    I would like to be able to hover my mouse over a thumbnail of a video and preview frames from it when I move my cursor left or right. Just like in Adobe Premiere Media Browser. It would make it easier to parse through footage faster without downloading or playing the video.

  4. version tracking between multiple files

    It often happens that multiple files relate to the same product and therefore need to have the same version tracking. In this case if a version is created by mistake (the version number is incremented on a file) this can offset the version tracking between all the files related to the same product. Some solutions include:

    1 - Give more flexibility around version numbering (be able to do a hard reset of the version number - i.e. reset version number from number 30 to number 25 and delete all versions in-between)
    2 - Allow version tracking between multiple files -…

  5. Allow System Administrators to download pkgs/msi's for all OS without being redirected on your site.

    Hello!
    I am unable to download the regular box drive pkg on my m1 mac. I am a system administrator who needs to download all pkgs/msi in order to support the business. I shouldn't have to use an intel based m1 mac just to download a pkg to upload to jamf.

    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043696254-Large-Scale-Deployments-Box-Drive

    My suggestion would be to put direct links to the intel mac pkg on this page and the m1 pkg as well.

  8. Linux version of Box Sync

    I'd really like to have help keeping files synchronized between my Linux and Windows workstations. Linux Box Sync would be great.

  9. List of Offline Folders in Box Drive

    It would be great to be able to see a list of folders marked for offline availability in Box Drive. We've had a few users who end up accidentally using up too much hard drive space, but can't remember exactly what folders they've marked offline. We end up needing to have them sign out of Box Drive to clear all offline folders, then sign back in and re-mark folders they need.

  11. Set a configuration option to toggle thumbnails off by default

    When a multipage, or multisheet, document is opened in Box, the thumbnails are toggled open by default and take up much of the left side of the screen. A configuration option should be offered to allow a user to set the thumbnail toggle off by default.

  12. Add configuration option to hide the right-hand sidebar automatically

    When a file is opened, the right-hand sidebar is open by default. My preference is to have it closed, so I must close it each time. Please add a configuration option that would allow for users to set that sidebar closed at startup by default.

  14. boxcn.net link from Box Drive

    Looking forward an option to setup Box Drive to generate shared links with the boxcn.net URL by default.
    We heavily work with factories in China and for them to access shared files, we need to modify URL from "box.com" to "boxcn.net" manually everytime when we generate links from Box Drive.
    Note: we know we can generate "boxcn.net" links from web platform when we login via boxcn.net. We are specifically looking for a feature to setup Box Drive links to be "boxcn.net".

  15. Working on same file simultaneously

    Possibility in Box Drive - (and also in any other application (online, app,..))- to lock a file (e.g. Excel file) automatically as soon as one user is in the document.
    Therefore, if the next user wants to open the same file while one user is already working on it, it gets immediately a message like "Read only". As soon as the user is out of the file, and no user has opened the file, whoever wants to open it, can open it without any warnings in editor mode.

  16. Checking last accessed date and user on folders

    Adding a feature where you are able to see the last time a certain folder was accessed along with the name of the person who accessed it. Similar to how it's done with google drive. This will help companies strengthen their security over data shared on Box Drive as this will allow them to keep track of who's accessing the files/folders. Especially when it comes to collaborators and shared links, you will be able to keep track of who has accessed these folders and when.

  17. Tags and comments in Box Drive

    Is there a way to see the tags in Box Drive? Right now I have to view box on the browser to see the tags for each file. Is there some option to view the tags in Box Drive without having to go to box.com each time?

  18. Browser to open into the Finder window

    I love the way in the Finder window you can click to view on the Box.com browser...it would be great if there was a way vice versa on the Box.com browser to open into the Finder window!

  19. Recommend an automated, timed backup onto a secure Duke folder for ToolKit folders/files to improve deleted file recovery options fora team

    Recommend an automated, timed backup onto a secure Duke folder for ToolKit folders/files to improve deleted file recovery options for a team. Now it appears that recovery of files that were deleted in a shared Duke Box Toolkit folder can only be recovered by the individual that deleted the file (not the co-owner or admin without the assistance of the individual that performed the deletion). For critical files this is a security risk to just store the files on the Box Drive because it severely limits identifying and recovering deleted files. The individual that deletes the file could do it…

    Thanks for your suggestion. This is a feature that we’re considering for the future, but not planned in the near-term. One workaround is to limit the number of files that you’ve marked for offline access, as those are the ones that continue to synchronize new updates to your computer as they get made on Box.
