We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap. Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!
We understand the request, but unfortunately this is not on the near-term roadmap.

We just subscribed to box for our business but we didn't realize that these permissions were set up as waterfall. This really makes box in efficient for us because we have to have separate out folders that really should be together in order to effectively give permissions. This does not make sense for our business. . If this cannot get fixed we will have to switch to another service that can provide it.
Thanks for the feedback! Users already have the ability to selectively sync (mark content for offline access) today in Box Drive. What I believe you’re asking for is a curated view of content you select to show up in Box Drive. That’s something we’re considering as we think about how to solve the content sprawl issue in Box Drive.
Moving shared folders is not on the near-term roadmap. We understand the massive importance and we hope that a new product development to be released in 2020 will help address content sprawl.
Due to other higher priority items, this has been deprioritized.
We are currently not planning to implement this feature and will continue to prevent all Box Drive results from appearing in Explorer/Finder searches.
Box Drive does not download the all of the metadata (File name, folder structure, etc.) of your Box content. Instead, it is downloaded on demand and then evicted when it is no longer relevant. This eviction process is not visible to users and it is not easily predictable. This would cause the search results in Explorer/Finder to be inconsistent for users – sometimes they would find a file and other times they may not if the metadata and file were evicted.
We have chosen not to download all of the metadata (and then keep it up to date with changes) as this can result in a large performance, storage and bandwidth tax which is not scalable – especially in environments where users interface with millions of files/folders.
