  6. Change local BfD folder UI to distinguish if collaborators are in folders (like webapp)

    Add UI to local BfD folders to know ownership/collaborators of folders (i.e. yellow = no collabs, grey = external collab, blue = owned externally + collaborators)

    We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap.  Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!

  7. Allow users to suppress problem items they do not have permissions to fix

    For example, you are a Viewer Uploader on a folder that contains restricted Windows characters. As a Viewer Uploader, you do not have permissions to rename the folder. Now, your BFD client will forever complain about this folder.

    We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap. 

    We will be suppressing server-side problem item (files that cannot sync to Box Drive from Box.com) notifications starting in Box Drive v2.4 in an effort to reduce the noise while we work towards solving this problem in a better way.

  8. Allow Auto-Provisioning from Box for Desktop

    Our current desktop apps (Sync, Box for Office) do not support allowing a user to auto-provision their account during the login process.

  9. Make Box Sync test proxy configuration using the domain that failed the request

    Currently if Box Sync fails a network call, it will check if it should be using a proxy by making requests to https://www.box.com and http://www.box.com regardless of the domain that failed the call.This is problematic for customers who have different proxy rules/servers setup for different Box domains. For example, if Box Sync is failing to download a new version from e3.boxcdn.net, it needs to check what proxy it should use for boxcdn.net and not box.com.

  10. Ability to Suppress Login Screen from Popping Up

    Often times customers want to deploy the Box desktop apps, including Box Sync, prior to users actually being able to log in and create their accounts. Currently, Box Sync auto-starts upon startup to a user's computer, which causes the Box Sync login window to constantly appear.This request is to provide a simple way for admins deploying the apps to suppress that login page until a later point in time.

  11. Unified Desktop Apps Installer (for Box Sync, Notes, Tools/Edit)

    For companies who prefer users to 'opt in' to using Box apps instead of push installation, they would like to have a single 'app bundle' that users can download and install multiple Box applications at once.

    The installers will be separate for the foreseeable future. Share comments below.

  14. Opt in feature that will trigger an alert to user if their Box Sync hasn't successfully synced in a certain time frame

    This could be 24-48 hours. It could also be 30 days. The goal is to alert an admin or an end-user that sync is not working.

  19. "Save As" different file format option from Office applications

    Currently you can only save the document to Box as it is, but end users are accustomed to being able to save documents as a different file format from within Word/Powerpoint/Excel (especially saving to pdf format). Current functionality means users must "save as" locally first, and then upload to Box which is an extra step compared to what they're currently doing.
