  1. Folders accessed via Box for Salesforce do not appear in Box Drive until re-login

    We’re finding that when a user visits a folder from Box for Salesforce, they then have access to the client folder from Box.com but it does not appear in Box Drive until they log out of Box Drive and back in.

  2. Option to prevent Drive from launching on startup by user

    We are preparing to deploy Box Drive to our users using the Windows .msi. However we've found that after installation, the Box Drive window opens automatically for every user, every time they log into the computer. For users on a shared system who are not using Box, this means dismissing the window every login.
    We'd like an option for Box Drive installation to not have the client launch automatically for all users. Or post-installation, allow the user to tell Box Drive not to open automatically for them. If the Box Drive client needs to run at login for every user,…

  3. Icon or Warning Message to display when MFO using Box Drive would be helpful to collaborators

    Is there a way for an icon or warning message to display when users mark a folder for offline use or when a file is marked for offline use? This would really help since multiple people might be viewing and editing the same file and if someone is already working on it offline, then we wouldn’t want to make changes and override it.

  4. Remove the Sync icons in Webapp after uninstalling Box Sync

    After transitioning from Box Sync to Box Drive (and uninstalling Sync), the “Marked for Sync” icons on the webapp should be removed to avoid user confusion on how syncing works with Box Drive.

  6. Box Drive Notification

    It would be nice to have a feature we can use to notify end users of the restriction to upload files at the root level in Box Drive. Right now we are depending on sync errors which can be easily dismissed by non technical users and I believe if a message was clearly displayed of the restriction It would cause less confusion and create a better user experience.

  7. Better handling of situation when another application creates a folder at the Box Drive folder path

    Would like to see a few changes to Box:

    1) A better error message
    2) A possibility to continue regardless of the error
    3) A better handling of the situation where an application have taken ‘ownership’ of the Box directory

  8. Clear cache after set period of time

    We'd like to enable users to install Box Drive but need to make sure the cached content is deleted when they leave even if Box Drive is not uninstalled from their device.

  10. Drive: Available offline to specific folders and not enterprise wide

    We would like to allow available offline for user drives only or work spaces. But network shares which is considerable larger shouldn't have this option. So If we allow admins the ability to choose what folders can be marked for offline instead of enterprise wide.

  11. Add Make Available Offline control to Explorer/Finder toolbar

    We are pushing our users to start using Drive instead of Sync. Our helpdesk team brought up that they are concerned that the current UI for MFOing content (right click file, click “Make Available Offline”) is not intuitive for end users. They are requesting a button for “MFO“ to be surfaced on the top toolbar of the Windows Explorer window when an item is selected, so that the option is visible without having to right click the item.

  12. Create log out protocols for Box Drive

    Allow for an Admin to create protocols that will require users in Box Drive to have to login again after a predetermined amount of time.

  13. MFOffline/MFOnline multiple folders at once

    I'm dealing with tons of folders so it would be great to have this option. Need the ability to select multiple folders and mark them all at once.

  14. Ability in Box Drive to have documents physically stored on PC or external driver

    In Box Drive it would be good that the documents are physically on our PC in offline mode, not just a memory copy (metadata).

  16. Make Box Drive a NTFS volume

    Box Drive is currently recognized as a FAT32 "installed volume". Whenever I try to copy a file from my NTFS SSD, I get a system message telling me that some file properties cannot be copied.

    I don't know if that can cause any problem in the files content, but it surely hurts our working efficiency, since we have to do an additional click every time we need to upload a file throughBox Drive.

  17. Be able to move files on Box online and have it update in Box Drive without having to log out.

    When moving large folders via Box online, the folder dissapears within Box Drive. According to Box, this is intended behavior, and requires the user to log out of the software and log back in, which resets what is synced. Box Drive should be able to update folder changes without having to sign out of the account.

  18. Open a file in web apps immediately when clicking on link in Box web file browser

    Currently, clicking on a link opens a new tab in the web browser with a preview of the file and the option to open the file in a web app. There should be a preference to open the file directly in a web app or to generate the preview screen. The preview screen would be useful if the text of the displayed document could be copied without line breaks at the end of each displayed line. I often open many documents per session to copy snippets, but have to take the extra step of opening the doc in a web…

  19. Indicate when a file has been shared by me

    Indicate when a file has been shared by me. This used to be a feature (an icon would appear next to the file) that I relied on because I don't always remember if I've shared the file or not. Now I may send a certain file more than once to a particular person not remembering that I already sent it.

  20. Android File Association Fix

    On Android, other apps prompt you to "open with" when opening a file there is no association for (ps1, vbs, lang of your choice). However Box makes no such prompt. Please update Box Android to offer an "open with" dialog like other apps have.
