  2. Add an internal validation link for EMM instances

    Current state: once an EMM instance has been set up, the IC/CSM sends the public ID to the customer. The admin is then responsible for applying the public ID and validating that it works.

    Request: Add a validation link for instances with an API URL, username, and password for the CSM to validate that the credentials are accurate, and provide an accurate error message (e.g. username/password invalid).

    Calls will not work without management IDs sent from valid devices.

    We’d have to work with the EMM providers on a workaround, however there would be security concerns with the ability to successfully ping an EMM server without a managed device.

    We are awaiting further Windows mobile demand before we invest further resources.

    As it stands, Box Universal app requires an individually based install from the Windows App Store and cannot be mass installed. This will not be changed in the near future.

  5. Device pinning should count number of device by IMEI: International Mobile Equipment Identity.

    Currently Box count number of device by Device ID provided by Apple. Device ID is unique. If user re-installed App, Box count is up even in spite of same device.

    Apple does not currently give access to IMEI within code (they used to). Currently we get a vendor ID as specified by Apple, which may or may not change (depending on iOS version).

    Apple determines the mapping of apps to URLs. They can either disable Proofpoint for Box URLs or have users click on the open in Box as their workaround.

    Accepting collab invites is not currently available via the API, and we don’t have plans to prioritize this for m.box.

  8. Allow XML on mobile to open in Settings app

    When a .mobileconfig file is opened from a shared link on mobile and the Box app is NOT installed, the file opens on m.box.com and can be downloaded from Safari.

    When the app is installed, the file's raw text is displayed. There's no way to download the profile when sent as a shared link, and the app is installed

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

  10. Ability to type folder to choose to upload

    When copying a file to Box from another application, there is an option to upload it to a Box folder. You have to scroll to the appropriate folder and "Choose" the file. We would like the option to type the folder and locate the folder.

  12. Admin Control for "Upload Size" in Box Capture App

    Our company uses Box Capture to record movies of accident scenes or maintenance areas. The upload size can only be set on per device basis. Our admins want to be able to force a consistent setting for all of our users in order to optimize the replay of movies in the field (i.e.. If some users are uploading movies at the largest size setting, these can take a long time to start playing when other users try to stream these files on other devices.)

    Waiting a long time for large files to play can be very time consuming, especially if…

  17. Previewer Uploader Able to Download Files

    When a link is sent with the access level set to "Collaborators Only" a "Previewer Uploader" Collaborator can then open the link from their email and have the option to "Open in App" and the IOS app will give them the opportunity to Download the File. The file can then be uploaded to Google Drive and then viewed on a desktop or mobile device. This basically gives the Previewer Uploader the ability to download the file.

    This change would also require an admin console change which would add additional overhead. It is not one we are considering at this time.
