  1. 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?

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Watermark of PDF and Excel files

    We are not able to use watermark of PDF and Excel files on mobile devices such as iPhone and iPad. We would like to use this feature.

  5. Box available as Service on iOS Shortcuts app

    Currently in iOS Shortcuts app, iCloud Drive and Dropbox are available, Box should be there too. Will help in automating copying files to Box using Shortcuts on iOS.

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to annotate pdf

    my users would really love a feature to allow PDF annotation of the actual PDF document without having to open the document in another tool. We can then retain the document/presentation and the notes for record keeping. makes for a super efficient meeting

  8. 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.

  9. + button should be disabled with "Restrict content creation"

    Users belonging to tenant with "Restrict content creation - Only admins can create and delete first-level folders, files, and bookmarks" setting enabled can see "+" button for adding content on their root folder screen of Box for iOS mobile app.
    They can operate through "+" button, but it fails due to the restriction.

    The customer believe that "+" button should be grayed out if this restriction is in effect.
    The customer wants the same to happen because "+" button is grayed out in the folder that the user is accessing with VIEWER privilege.

  10. Ability to add and remove columns from box note tables from the box app on iPhone

    I need to be able to add and remove columns from box note tables from the box app on my iPhone. This feature is currently not available. To add or remove rows and columns from box note tables I have to use a web browser.

  11. Ability to access Sub-links under shared folders on mobile

    Our agency staff commonly sends out content links to customers by navigating to a file or folder under an existing shared folder link, then copying that link and directing customers to the specific content without creating an additional shared link. This is valuable to us because we don't want hundreds of shared links, the original content owner may not be available and we want to direct our customers as quickly and precisely as possible.

    However, we found that there is an issue with this method. Those sub-links work just fine for someone with a desktop browser, but if you try…

  12. Ability to restrict access to specific folders from mobile devices

    We need to be able to restrict our users from viewing secure content on their phones. But not all of our content is secure. We would like to provide the convenience to our users of accessing their files via box, but restrict specific, secure, project related files from mobile access.

  13. Add Box to list of places iOS screen recordings can be stored automatically

    Apple iOS has screen recording built in and if you long press to show the settings there is an option to store the resulting recording to Photos but there are a few other apps listed like Gmail and Zoom. It would be great if Box could be added to that list so it would be easy to added screen recordings directly to Box.

  14. Support SSO with certificate authentication in ios app

    Authenticate using the In-App Browser when performing single sign-on using the Box for iOS App. Authentication using an X.509 Certificate is not available. In-App Browser does not accept certificate authentication requests.

    Other iOS apps (Gmail, Slack, etc.) support certificate authentication, so I would like Box for iOS to support it as well.

  15. Ability to resize photos uploaded from Box Capture

    The size of the photos taken and uploaded by Box Capture is about 5MB each.
    In addition to Box, we also sync uploaded items to our on-premise server, so there is a capacity control on the server side, and a 5MB image is too large.

    We would like to be able to choose some upper limit of capacity when we take a picture with Box Capture.
    (We would like to have the ability to automatically resize the image when shooting in Box Capture).

    (e.g. high quality mode, standard quality mode, low quality mode, etc.)


    <Box Captureからアップロードされた写真をリサイズする機能>
    Box Captureで撮影し、アップロードされた写真のサイズは、1枚約5MB程度です。
    Boxのほかに、オンプレサーバーにもアップロードしたアイテムを同期しているのでサーバー側に容量の制御があり、5MBの画像は大きすぎます。

  16. OCR support for Japanese in Android

    OCR cannot recognize Japanese language in Android devices.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500000212121-Using-Document-Scanning

    It would be very helpful if mobile app can recognize Japanese language when using Document Scanning.

  17. <Added the ability to download in bulk using the Box for iPhone app>

    We are using the Box app on our iPhone.
    Currently, we can't select multiple items (such as image files) and download them.

    We are convinced that it would be even more convenient if it were possible to select multiple files and download them all at once.
    If it is not possible to support all file types, could you please add a bulk download function for image files only?

    iPhoneでBoxアプリを利用しています。
    現在は、アイテム(画像ファイル等)を複数選択し、ダウンロードができません。

    複数のファイルを選択して一括ダウンロードが可能になると、更に便利になると確信しています。
    すべてのファイルタイプに対応することが難しい場合、画像ファイルだけでも、一括ダウンロード機能を追加していただけませんでしょうか。

  19. Seamlessly take and upload a large number of photos with Box mobile app

    Please add the ability to take many photos in a row with the Box mobile app and the newly added Capture mode (widget).
    In the Box Capture app, this could be done by turning off the review.

  20. home button on iOS app

    When I get many folders deep into Box on iOS, it would be helpful to have a home button to go all the way back to the top of my folder structure. Currently I occasionally have to click many times to navigate back to the top.
    Thanks!
