  1. Box Drive (Windows) - Remember folder view settings

    We’ve been using Box Drive since launch, and it’s been an incredible improvement in our workflow. Only a small issue has made it notably less useful in saving time, and is a known issue documented here (community.box.com/t5/Box-Drive-Known-Issues..)

    Our file name and directory lengths are wider than the default for Box Drive/Windows. Normally Windows remembers preferences around column width, but in this case, as you know, Box Drive does not. This causes us to have to manually resize the “Name” field in every folder/directory, every time we access one. Therefore each user is having to do this perhaps dozens of times…

  2. box drive sync progress

    When syncing large amounts of data or many items into Box, I don't have a number of items remaining unless I try to log out of Box drive while it is uploading. Could we take that information and put it into the Box Drive icon like it was displayed in Box Sync?

  3. Box Drive Sync Delay Indicator

    Box Drive is supposed to mirror the files on the server. But we experience delays of five minutes to over an hour between when we complete an upload to Box and when other users can see the file in Box Drive. We end up having to use the web portal more frequently to download files rather than waiting for them to appear, which creates version issues and nullifies the most attractive feature of Box Drive. The old Box Sync software used red or green dots to indicate if a file had synced. Is there a way to add such an…

  4. Seamless Sign On - Box Drive

    Like OneDrive, we want the ability for the box drive client to seamlessly sign into box without any user integration at login. This will benefit;
    - VDI users
    - Hot desk users
    - Students (e.g. lab machines)
    - First time logon for staff allocated devices

    We understand this won't work for everybody but we to SSO to box via Azure AD and all of our 7,500 managed devices are joined to both on-premises AD and Azure AD. In fact we're starting have a slow migration to pure Azure AD.

    This has stopped any large scale rollout and we have seen…
