    This is a huge pain point for our Finance team, and lack of this feature has essentially put our broader Box Drive rollout on hold. This is very similar to https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-feedback/suggestions/35983087-enhanced-locking-experience-on-box-drive

    I believe the most recent version of Box Drive resolved this issue.

    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 is a huge pain point for our finance department. They are working with huge collaborative excel files. If they forget to manually lock a file even once, they end up with multiple versions that they have to spend significant amounts of time reconciling. This is absolutely the top feature that's preventing our broader organization from transitioning to Box Drive. We've essentially put our Box rollout on hold because of this feature gap.
