Thank you for the suggestion. 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!

Box has clearly said that they have no interest in allowing manual sync and would rather users spend more money to upgrade their equipment and internet connection to avoid issues on other software due to syncing large amount of syncing.
What Box should do: Allow manual pause or resume of Downloads & Uploads & Allow Admins to set if the organization individual users are allowed to pause/resume Down/Uploads. Pausing syncing should be allowed but the app should keep track of changes with timestamps so changes in file names can accurately be reintegrated to the main.
For users that really require this I have found a solution. Dropbox. They have Migration tools available and there are plenty of 3rd Party tools to safely migrate your data and users.

Currently you can't tag files in finder. If you tag a file, the tag persists for 1-2 seconds then disappears. On top of that, Box lets you tag files in the Web browser, do those tags show up in Finder? NO, tags created on box.com are useless in finder, only work for in browser use of Box. Does the Box Drive App on Mac find folders or files that have the tag that was created on Box.com? Surely it would show up there even if it didnt on finder... also wrong Box app is not able to provide files when searching the tag.
Tags in finder should show up online and should persist throughout the organization. If box's developers aren't smart enough to make that happen when competitors can then at a MINIMUM The Box App should be upgraded/overhauled to serve as a file explorer /manager that actually makes use of the Tags users can create on Box.com. This would also help fix a lot of the issues that box causes/encounters by relying solely on Finder or File Explorer ( like Favorites disappearing from the side bar for example)
I have used Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Tresorit, and Box in professional capacities and Box by far has the highest amount of basic features missing paired with developers/forum admins that cant seem to fathom real world customers having real world issues that Box did not anticipate. Box needs to step it up...
