  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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-)

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. + 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
