    Thanks for your great suggestion! We know this capability would be hugely valuable. This is not something we’re currently working on, but we’re always considering feedback from customers like you in how we work with Microsoft to enhance secure productivity and collaboration.

    Microsoft allows it's users when in OneDrive to save a file and then work collaboratively in the Office 365 file on the DESKTOP APP... knowledge base article is here:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/collaborate-on-word-documents-with-real-time-co-authoring-7dd3040c-3f30-4fdd-bab0-8586492a1f1d

    This is a no-brainer and should be the exact same functionality on BOX Drive as right now all BOX user's as stuck using Office Online but could definitely be using the Desktop app for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to use the full functionality of the program.

    Microsoft have this functionality for their document platform OneDrive as detailed here: https://community.box.com/t5/How-to-Guides-for-Integrations/Box-for-Office-Integrations/ta-p/324#bfo_rtca

    This allows any users to save a file in OneDrive, and then anyone with an Office 365 account can collaborate on the file in real-time in the desktop apps due to the file being on OneDrive.

    This 100% should be a feature for BOX Drive!

    Even being able to hide empty folders in BOX Drive would make navigating BOX Drive much quicker... or show somewhere the file count under each folder so the user knows which folders are populated with files would help!

    I can't understand why you cannot remove yourself from a BOX Notes file... I've been using both for 2 months now and already have the left hand column history of BOX Notes full with old notes I'll never use again. I don't want to delete the file off BOX... maybe I'll have to convert it to MS Word... but being able to remove yourself OR the file from BOX History is a must have!

    It's quite baffling that a cloud based platform cannot tell when someone has opened a file from their cloud server, and that if that file has been opened by two separate people, it should be locked or a warning message received for the second person editing the file.

    Couldn't agree more - it's extremely inconvenient having to log into BOX.com to review what files/folders have collaboration or SHARE URL access assigned to them.

    It'd be great to see this as an icon or something similar in BOX Drive so you can easily edit or remove these settings quickly if need be.

    Every single time you open BOX Drive in Windows you have to resize all the columns widths....

    I thought this was a Windows Explorer setting, but it's obviously not.
