    As some commenters noted, files are not cached automatically when users access a folder. Rather, the metadata on the files within a folder get cached. Files themselves will only be cached/downloaded if a user double-clicks on them.

    Box Drive should only cache files that are actually accessed. This seems like a disaster waiting to happen, if we were to accidentally access our user backups folder with terabytes of data, Box drive would try and cache everything?

    We released an improvement to the Groups UI to allow the full group and folder names to be displayed. Long group and folder names will now wrap to subsequent lines so you will not have to hover over each group or folder name to view the full name.

    Please update this, seems to be an oversight in the Amsterdam release.

    would be nice.. especially if Box is trying to be the FTP replacement solution. SFTP is the most common FTP for regulated industries.

    Definitely an interesting suggestion! Please comment below with your specific use cases and challenges regarding locking a folder taxonomy.

    We are currently developing solutions to enable 1st / 3rd party apps and specific enterprise settings by groups of users in the enterprise. We will provide an update when this makes it onto the roadmap.

    This should have been implemented from Day 1. Still waiting on this.

    This is strange since not environments have this flaw. I work with another customer on Box and their SSO page properly redirects no matter what you put in whereas my will redirect you to MY SSO which no external user has an account with.

    this needs to be worked out, it is killing adoption with our external partners.

    This is an absolute must. The reason why this isn't up voted higher is a lot of Admins don't realize the security risk of allowing users to sync their data on any unprotected device they want.

    Device trust can work but its not support unless your on a enterprise plan and Pinning is support on a Business plan. This is a huge discrepancy.

    I would just use Crooze integration, the metadata capability in box today is basic and there would need to be a significant overhaul to add value.

    The first step we are taking to treat external users more like managed users is to allow external users to be placed into groups for better project collaboration at scale. User voice request here: https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778/suggestions/35982226

    Second, we will focus on better reporting and auditing for external users. Uservoice request here: https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778/suggestions/36112645

    Any additional requests for managing external users can be captured in this user voice request.

    This sounds good in theory but fundamentally goes against Box's core design. Imagine the amount of issues you are going to have when a user can't find something and you can't even tell them where the file is since the location is technically "different"

    We do not have near-term plans to add this capability right now. You might be able to get a similar effect by using Device Trust on those endpoints and requiring a specific certificate on a device, which is limited to just those groups of users.

    This is a problem with any Box integration. It's all or nothing. Device Trust is not available for everyone and also it doesn't apply to every single app, just the Box ones. This is a serious oversight. You need to have groups for applications so you can say "Marketing only has access to CRM and Box", "Admins only have access to these new apps to test" etc. Right now this is half delivered functionality.

    We are beginning to develop solutions that will allow external users to be placed in groups. We’ll post an update when this feature officially makes it onto our roadmap.

    We understand the request, but unfortunately this is not on the near-term roadmap. We are currently prioritizing automatically locking/unlocking files on Box Drive for Office files on Windows. We will revisit this feature in the future.

    With this enhancement our focus is to provide users with the visibility into the file state. It will cover automatic file locking/unlocking and providing notifications when others have the file locked. This functionality will be scoped to only specific applications, with our main priority being the MSFT Office apps first (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Stay tuned!

    This would be great. Almost everyone that works on Box always say "Why can't it just automatically lock files like every other service we've used in the past? I have to manually lock files?"
