    I believe this coincides with what I would like to see. For example
    We apply a cascading metadata template to a "Project" folder. One of the attributes is "Project Status".
    Currently if the value of "Project Status" is changed, that update does not propagate without toggling the policy on/off. It would be beneficial to have at least the option to propagate future value changes to children.

    Even in the new UI Beta, there's a disconnect
    I would agree that there's a disconnect. For a file, you must "preview" the file to "view details" to see metadata info.
    For a folder you "Edit" and it comes up in a separate popup window (in which you can edit)
    Personally I prefer the popup window method for a file at this point.

    Similar to this, it would be useful to be able to "link" to another folder without requiring the creation of a "shared link". To add an option to browse Box to find the bookmark target would be beneficial I think.

    This would be beneficial in situations where the organization (like us) are trying to use Box as our primary collaborative workspace. Currently if I want pull information from a file stored on Box, I either need to leverage Box Desktop, or create a shared link (with wide open permissions) to access the file. An official connector would be much appreciated.

    This seems like it would be better solved with a search improvement to Box Drive. If not, let us know in the comments.

    This looks very similar if not identical to the idea post in this suggestion: 36113086. To avoid getting marked as a spammer, I'm voting and making my comment here.

    https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/36113086-open-with-box-drive-from-webapp.

    I would add another use case for this that better search would not address. When trying to collaborate between people, a user, get's a shared link via Box drive and then emails this link to their coworker.
    If the coworker, clicks on the link, their computer will open the link in Box's Web App. Adding a "Open in Box Drive" widget in the webapp would aid the coworker in getting back to the Box Drive folder they may intend on working from anyway.
    Within a company this could also minimize the disruption caused by various permissions levels that would make the folder path different per person.

    Similar to what Loren posted, it would be beneficial if Box Drive were to simulate what users are "used to" in the Windows file share world, where a file is 'automatically' locked when opened by someone with Editor permissions.

    As an alternate, perhaps a popup that asks the user if they want to lock when opening the file and then reminds them to unlock when they close the file.

    Use Case: We are trying to improve visibility of where content related to a given "project" is located. Most of this content is located under the central project folder. which the recent changes allow us to assign metadata at the folder level.
    It would be helpful to allow someone to assign a metadata template and properties of a folder, without having to open the WebApp and then navigate to the Metadata pane to assign these values.
    This would improve the use of Metadata by making easier to access, thus hopefully making it more accurate.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Typically updates between box.com and Box Drive should happen very quickly. If they are not, we’d recommend filing a support ticket in case there is an issue.

    Pairing this idea with the automation request of returning a Job ID that was submitted by another user. This would be great if for example you copy a large folder, and are wondering "is it done" before you can allow other tasks to be performed on the original source folder.

    A Job ID would at least give you something to look for.

    To the last comment on 2/27. Not all of us have MDM solutions in place. This would be helpful as new features (specifically custom mount points) are version specific. (i.e. first supported in 2.3, update to 2.4 broke and 2.5 restored)

    Another use case for Hiding folders specifically from Box Drive, though it might be useful to hide them in the web interface as well is "Administratively Shared directories".
    For example we have a folder of Support Ticket information, you don't want to confuse employees with having that show up in Box drive, but you do want to be able to access it for a script. You are having an employee run a logging script that captures information to the local drive. To ease data collection you could have the script capture it's logs to Box Drive.

    As a side effect this could in some way be used to mirror favorites into Box Drive?

    This suggestion is not under consideration for our roadmap. We are currently focusing on improving the performance and UI to manage users in the Users & Groups tab. We will revisit this request to make removal of users from the suppression list self-service in the next 6 months. In the meantime, we will explore short-term options to notify the admin if a user is added to the suppression list.

    Further if the admin were able to remove a user from blacklist, it'd be another step in reducing service tickets. I've run into this issue numerous times until we modified our new user setup to ensure that their mailbox was setup the day before their Box access was added.
