  1. Box drains my iphone 7 battery, even though it shouldn't be open or running in the background

    Each morning I use a "Numbers" app file which is saved to Box on my iphone so that I can use it on my MacBook pro. The problem is whilst I haven't directly opened the Box app to do this save, it opens and continues to run in the background and drain the battery (60% in an hour is typical). Eventhough in the app settings "Background app refresh" is off as is "Notifications", I can only stop this drain if I turn the phone off and back on again. I am running ios 14.2 and I keep all apps up-to-date.…

  2. Updates are no longer unlimited... WHY?

    Updates are essential... Box won't allow viewing of updates on the Mobile app anymore, and with the latest update, the Updates feature on desktop only goes back 24 hours... This is unacceptable.

  4. Cannot Search from Box app "Favorites" of iOS (iPhone/iPad)

    Cannot Search from Box app "Favorites" of iOS (iPhone/iPad)

    After updating the Box app on iOS (iPhone/iPad) to version 5.1.3, the search icon (magnifying glass) disappeared from the top right of the "Favorites" screen and search is disabled.

    Requesting for the improvement of the function so that search function is enabled from "Favorites" screen just like in version 5.1.2 of Box application.

  5. When I click on a photo in Browse mode to bring it full frame, by default a side panel comes up labeled "Activity." i

    I am running v.5.1.4 IOS for ipad. When I click on a photo in Browse mode to bring it full frame, by default a side panel comes up labeled "Activity." This is very annoying, as I constantly have to click on the photo to make it full frame and eliminate the side panel. My suggestion: this should be a user option, rather than a default that cannot be changed. Most users do not use this Activity feature; why is it the default setting? This is a change on this new version 5.1.4. Please fix this on the next version.

  6. Shared link works on desktop but fails on mobile

    I received a Box link from a contact in the form https://app.box.com/s/[string]/folder/[string]. Clicking this link in iOS Mail app opened a Box web page in Safari with the message "This shared file or folder has been removed." I tried to resolve this by installing the Box app. Clicking the link now opened the Box app with a message telling me I must log in to access my content. This would not be possible for recipients without a Box account.

    In macOS Mail, clicking the link opened a Box web page in Safari correctly listing the shared files. Without logging…

  8. File Picker utilizing mobile deep link for Box iOS/Android App

    Dropbox has a library called Chooser, which makes it easy to select files in Dropbox from custom Mobile apps. ( https://www.dropbox.com/developers/chooser#ios )

    Dropbox Chooser uses mobile deep link bidirectionally to move between a custom app and the Dropbox app. As for Box app, mobile deep link is one-way; the Box app can be opened but it is not possible to select files and go back to the custom app.

    The major advantages of using Dropbox Chooser for service providers are as follows.
    - No need to make additional UI for the file chooser
    - No need to authenticate or handle…

  9. iPhone default preview mode

    With the recent iOS app update, all PDF’s when previewed in Landscape mode display the “activity” screen on the right hand side by default. This is an unwanted feature and I would prefer defaults to show the "activity" screen collapsed.

  10. Tag and Metadata support still missing on Mobile?

    Hello, new user here evaluating Box.com for several cloud integrations within our company. I am searching the community for info on searching/filtering by tags and/or metadata via the Box mobile apps. I am confused... I am seeing replies back from Box support dating all the way back to 2017 saying that tag/metadata support on mobile is one of the most requested features. Yet neither seem to have been implemented as of Q2 2020? Am I missing something? What is the justification for lack of attention to such fundamental (and highly requested) features for your mobile apps? Whatever the case, it…

  11. In App PDF reader changes make the app frustrating to use

    Recently the UI for the PDF reader changed. I use Box primarily to read review copies of comic books, which DC Comics only make available to view in the app. Until recently this worked fine on my iPad, displaying the full page as I flipped through. I even liked the page flip of the interface enough that I upload other review copies to read them in the app. About three weeks ago, something in the UI changed, and now it no longer displays the full page, and I have to scroll on each page to read the whole thing. In…

  12. Apptec

    We use an EMM called Apptec360 to manage our mobile devices. It would be nice if this can be supported by Box for EMM.

  13. Add an identifier that ADFS can find that app is Box for EMM in User-Agent.

    Could you please consider adding an identifier that ADFS can find that app is Box for EMM in User-Agent.

    We found Box for EMM does not include any identifier like "Box for EMM" in its User-Agent when doing authentication with MAM checked-in. We just only allow access that "Box for EMM" includes in User-Agent. Therefore, ADFS cannot determine whether an application is Box for EMM or not and the user is unable to access from Box for EMM.

  15. Ability to accept invitation request to “Join Enterprise” via Mobile app

    We would like a way to see and accept invitation request for “Join Enterprise,” not only in Web browsers but also in Mobile [Box for iOS/Android] too.

    At the moment, users are unable to confirm and click “Accept” for the invitation request, when they log-in via [Box for iOS/Android].
    When there are many users who uses iPads only, it would take so much time and effort for them to access to Box via Web browser everytime, only to accept the invitation.

  18. CAPTURE for a SurfacePro?

    App for BOX members to download that will work the same way CAPTURE does for iPhone and iPad but on a SurfacePro? I need my inspectors to be able to quickly snap photos, videos or document scans and then upload and securely share them with Box on a SurfacePro. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

  20. Lock files from remote devices (Smartphone and tablets).

    Today, the unability to lock a file from smartphone and tablet is a huge problem for using Box by fields teams, creating many conflicts on files.
    Indeed, our fields teams don't want to use Box because this functionality is not vailable.
