    Agree - it is the single biggest item preventing us from seriously considering a move away from a NAS and toward a local laptop/PC centric environment using the cloud as a direct server for 80% of work (typical MS Office apps like word and spreadsheets). Some apps requiring NAS-based license servers and particular partial file locking (like Revit) won't ever move to Box i think, but a large part of our workflow could. File locking is a must-have for that to happen.

    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!
