  1. Box Mobile - GPS coordinates and Date Taken

    Box Mobile – GPS coordinates metadata location. In Box capture, capture saves location metadata about the photo, the longitude and latitude coordinates as Box metadata. The Box Mobile app photo does not save location as metadata on Box but instead you have to access the File Information to get the longitude and latitude of the photo. This is a request to update the Box Mobile to save the location coordinates (metadata) as metadata in Box in addition to file information.

    Also, Box app doesn’t capture the metadata for “Date Taken”

  2. View embedded widgets on mobile.

    The embedded widget is currently not viewable from mobile.

    When embedded widgets are supported on mobile devices, security will be ensured by using the videos in the tenant's Box instead of storing them on an external server or streaming service.

  4. Update m.box.com address for shared link previews on smartphones

    Please change the specification so that it does not change to the m.box.com address when previewing the shared link from smartphone.

    <Background>
    ・We want to share the preview screen easily to many unspecified users.
    ・But there are some shared links that can't be previewed on smartphone.
    ・The target shared link can be previewed successfully from the PC.
    ・The reason is that when you access the shared link from smartphone, the address is always changed to m.box.com.
    ・You can get around this problem by getting a free Box account (Individual) and installing Box for Mobile.
    ・However, this method requires some preparation…

  6. Ability to set default image quality for Capture mode of Box mobile app

    With Capture mode of Box mobile app, the default value for quality is "Original", in which case the images are taken with HEIC format. This is not optimal for Windows users (as HEIC is not supported), and the workaround is to use "High" or lower quality (in which case images are saved in jpg) but each user needs to manually configure this for his/her own device. We want the ability to configure this globally from admin console.

  7. Ability to reduce file size when image is scanned via the Box mobile app

    Ability to reduce file size when image is scanned via the Box mobile app.
    - Currently, the size of PDF files obtained when we scan a document via the Box mobile app, is very large.
    - Example: Box app on iPhone file size - 7.4MB; Apple's "import from iPhone" file size: -3.9MB. - Could we have the ability to resize / reduce quality of these files?

  10. Box Mobile - Hyperlink files embedded within Excel

    While opening linked files within an excel file on the Box mobile application.

    This is happening due to the current preview architecture for excel files and nested/linked files within the Box application. Although you can 'see' the desired file visible on the screen, within your current workflow, the Box app only recognizes the original file as being 'opened' which is why the original files are being saved and not the file open currently.

    Thanks

  12. Ability to view the appropriate number of files on the Mobile app

    I use Box to deliver Photo Proofs to clients. It is crazy that there hasn't been a proper update would allow me to see their 'favorites'. Instead I have to rely on "Comments", which for clients on the go and using the Mobile App, is usually a hasel. I'm also trying to figure out why the script for correcting the Usage Space has not been rolled out across the board. I'm still waiting for the script to run on my account, because I'm definitely not using 40 gigs of my 50 gigs right now.

  13. Support custom objects via the mobile Salesforce and Box integration.

    The Box and Salesforce integration for Salesforce mobile does not support custom objects at all so we had to create a deep link workaround that redirects to the associated folder within the box mobile experience (this also requires some salesforce coding to populate a field with the corresponding folderID). This is not a seamless experience....it is a clunky redirect.

    Also, you are not able to create the corresponding box folder for the first time from the mobile experience....you have to create the box folder from the desktop from within the box integration within salesforce first, before you are able to…

  14. Want more thumbnails of PDFs on Android devices

    Unlike Drop Box, which shows PDF thumbnails, Box's mobile app doesn't show thumbnails for Android. If it's iOS version, I can display PDF thumbnails.

    Since I have to open each file and check the PDF contents, it takes time and is very inconvenient, so I would like to modify it so that the thumbnails can be displayed in the Box app for Android.

  15. Users should be able to set up 2FA on their phones

    We invite external users who only have phones. However, we are set up for 2FA. That means these users need to find a computer to login via the webapp to set up 2FA before we can begin collaborating. This is an issue. The mobile interface should allow 2FA to be set up.

  16. Search folder or keyword with deep link

    Currently deep links have 3 syntax's: boxapp://sharedlink?url=[sharedlink] and boxapp://file?id=[fileid] and boxapp://folder?id=[folderid]. A search one would allow the mobile user to search off their keywords and not have to know the ID.

  17. UI enhancements for easy viewing of pdf files on iPhone & iPod

    When displaying pdf files using the Box App on iPhone & iPod, after scrolling to view the top of the file, the app seems to take control over the display and auto-scrolls the file upward causing the top of the file to be outside of the screen. Is there any way to correct this? Thank you! 8-)

  18. Unify the operation when tapping a shared link on a mobile terminal.

    When you tap the shared link pasted in an email etc.
    I currently understand that the behavior will be as follows.

    ・ When you tap the "Move to folder" button in the invitation email
    ➩ The browser login screen is displayed

    ・ When you tap the shared link of "Company user" or "Invited user" in the email
    ➩ Asked if you want to open it with the app

    ・ When you tap the "everyone who knows the link" shared link in the email
    ➩ The file is displayed on m.box.com

    Please change this operation so that it becomes the following…

  19. Playback Speed on Mobile for Videos

    I would like to play video contents with double speed in the mobile app's preview mode.
    Currently you can change the speed of the video on web but it is not possible on mobile.
    It would be great if you can add the playback speed (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) on mobile too.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  20. Option to not leave the data on the device

    If the user presses the + button and selects "Take photos or videos" and encounters an upload error when uploading the photos or videos taken, those files are automatically saved in the device's library.
    Since the data remaining on the device poses a security risk, you need an option to not leave the data on the device in the application settings.
