  1. Force the Box iOS / Box Android / Box EMM applications to re-authenticate more often than every 60 days.

    Ideally, we would like for the timeframe to be user definable.

    This is an important security requirement for us as we move into supporting non-GFE devices, so please do let us know if you need additional information.

    The mobile app is built on top of our APIs and therefore adheres to the standard token durations. Applications that are managed through an EMM provider already provide an advanced level of security that reduces overall risk.

    As a workaround, through your EMM provider, you could revoke the Box application and force users to reinstall on whatever basis you deem appropriate.

    Some providers may also allow you to revoke the managed app config which will force Box for EMM to log the user out.

    At some point, however, you would have to push the managed app config back down to the device.

  4. Expose EXIF Metadata in the Box Webapp when Media (Photo, etc.) is Uploaded via Box Mobile App

    Currently we do not expose media EXIF metadata (location info, camera type, etc.) for files uploaded to Box using the standard Box mobile apps (we do for media uploaded through Capture though).

    This request is to provide a similar experience like we've already implemented with Capture.

  5. Integrate iOS 9 PDF Markup feature with Box iOS app and/or Capture app

    There is an iOS 9 feature, Markup, which is currently not available from within Box app. This iOS 9 feature would allow any user to open a PDF from the Box app and provide the ability to annotate, markup, and sign.

    We will consider supporting Box annotations as those will remain with the document across all Box services.

  6. "Save files to device" settings to separate for Box Capture

    Currently, "Save files to device" settings on Enterprise settings affect both Box Mobile App and Box Capture. However, we want to do the settings separately.

    This is currently not planned, but we will consider with additional customer demand.

  7. EMM Multi-Window Support for iPad

    I need to be able to open multiple documents and easily switch between them with tabs (like iOS Safari perhaps) and I often need to display two documents side by side or have two views of the same document.

    During our investigation we determined that this flow was not a highly desired capability for how users currently want to work in Box. It would also require a shift in how our application was build.

  8. Device Limiting

    We would like users to limit the number of devices a user can have connected to their Box account at a single time; but would like users to be able to manage those devices themselves, so that when a user gets a new phone they can "remove" their old device from their account settings and log into the new phone without having to contact an administrator.

    Thank you for this request!

    We will review this with additional demand.

  9. Mobile Preview log

    Currently, mobile app's Preview action of some type of documents is logged as "download." It doesn't show actual actions, so it should be logged as "Preview."

    On Mobile, we use the download API call within the content SDK to grab the file for Preview purposes, which is why it is recorded as a download.

  10. Password Change Prompt on Mobile Login

    If an end user must reset their password (either mandated by admin or enterprise settings), we would like that notification to appear when the user tries to log in on the mobile app

    We would also like a notification when the password is going to expire (i.e., your password will expire in 7 days)

    We will re-evaluate this request based on additional customer demand.

  11. Enable pinch-in/pinch-out on mobile browser previews

    We share files as open-links to our users and external collaborators who do not have a Box account. They view documents on mobile.

  12. Allow third party mobile apps to "Use EMM" for login instead of direct Box API

    Instead of having users log into Box from other third party apps, have them use the auth from Box EMM. This allows Box to whitelist EMM for logins. Box should know for all integrations that the login from the 3rd party app is from a trusted device (since EMM is on it)

    We’ve explored this idea, but it does not appear technically feasible at this time. We are happy to revisit with additional demand.

    We’ll re-evaluate this request with increased demand. However, it is not a priority.

  14. 'Choose A Destination Folder' UI: Add Search & Sorting Capabilities

    Users find it annoying that they can't use the standard search/sort functions from the Box app when they're in the 'Choose a Destination Folder' modal.

    This is not currently planned. We will let you know if anything changes.

  16. Push Notifications for @Mentions

    Box push notifications on iOS are very limited currently and only send the user a push notification when...

    1. There's a comment added to a file and they're the most recent uploader
    2. They've been added to a folder

    The most logical other push notification to add would be for @mentions which, in theory, would increase overall adoption of comments as well.

  18. Ability to support previewing dynamic HTML5 files

    Our marketing team would like to deliver dynamic HTML5 collateral that includes animated components.

    Ideal scenario is to have the sales team be able to present content directly from Box (via tablet) without the need of a third party solution.

    Introducing additional solutions opens up more risk in terms of sensitive content leakage.

    At this time, the mobile team has several higher priorities, but we can re-examine this with additional customer demand.

  19. Choose document quality and size upon upload

    For photos and videos you can choose whether the size is small, medium or large. It would be great to have this functionality available for documents as well.

  20. Enhanced Error Page when Standard App is DISABLED & Box for EMM is ENABLED

    In companies that have the standard Box App disabled due to using Box for EMM, the current error page when users attempt to log into the regular Box app (that they download from their phone's app store) isn't intuitive at all - it simply tells them that this app is disabled and to contact their admin.

    In EIDs where Box for EMM is used, this error page should instead let users know that their company uses Box for EMM and to go to their company's app store to download Box for EMM.

    The error message is generic because it includes several states where you can get into this incorrect flow. A change would take a significant amount of effort that currently is lower priority than other items on our roadmap.
