    You can "View on Box.com" from Box Drive; it would be amazing to have a button in the web app in the ellipses or somewhere that could go the other way around. "View on Box Drive". Navigating folders is so much easier than clicking back through the breadcrumbs in the web to find parent folders from shared links/files.

    This would be a very valuable feature. For high-end production, the Box Drive cache information and behavior is quite simply a deal breaker. We have such a large file tree and Box Drive can only cache 25GB max of it by default (I know we can change that). How many files does that really cover? We now have to get in a habit of physically drilling down into the folders we need to preemptively "force-cache" them to keep them in the "recent" cache logs. "Making Available Offline" is not an option when that service is not allowed on an external hard drive like Box Sync. We are constantly double-guessing if files are actually in BD and have to go back and forth on the Web to make sure we're not losing our minds. In a fast-pace workflow, we ultimately do lose our minds. Then Box ecosystem acceptance disappears and users end up resenting it. Work simply stops, that cannot happen in any platform. Our users deal with hundreds/thousands of files daily. So basically we are asking the Box platform, its services and apps to do too much. Box Drive cannot handle it. We are now considering peeling apart all of our hard work to deploy a system that is a central hub for all users by separating archives from active work. That is backwards, any user should be able to find anything they need without asking anyone for permissions or help. We are considering putting back the very silos we worked so hard to destroy. Box engineers need to solve this now.

    Or at least give a warning about them to give an opportunity for the user to change it.

    We have numerous issues as well, when User A updates/edits a file and saves, User B can't see the file in Box Drive or on the Web App. I understand that process for large files, but we're having to login and out of our Box Drive App to "force-sync" a proper view of files available. That whole process needs to be quicker. Caching the tree is not working in real-world heavy digital creative workflows.

    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.

    This is a must for us. Your WebApp UI needs major help. We should be able to drag the width around for any column we want to see more of. Including hiding column views to help out with that. Long folder/file names are truncated and that's something we can shorten usually.

    This is a dealbreaker. Why would we pay for subscriptions that don't allow us to preview our assets? No other cloud platform has this limitation. This is unacceptable.

    This is a must have - scaling image before placing is cumbersome.

    This has been needed since day one of iOS/Android Mobile App Creation.

    This would be nice to hover over the last round to initiate a pop-up preview window of the file to give users an idea about its contents. This could reinforce the need to make it active if the preview can answer questions about "is this the version I want?" Saving the step of making the last round active before you can view it and then remembering to go back again (if it's not the correct round needed) to make the last-last version current is confusing and wasteful.

    Yes, you have the ability to tell Box Drive which folder you want Box Drive Cache and Mark For Offline folders now. If you all create the same directory path, it could solve this issue. This is working for us in a MAC-MAC or WINDOWS-WINDOWS situation MAC-WINDOWS-MAC is untested.
