  1. I would like to have access to the recycle bin using the mobile app for iOS devices

    Right now only the web page permits to access the recycle bin to delete permanently files and folders.
    It would be a great to develop an upgrade to have this option available also for the mobile device app.

  2. box app should open other apps in their own instance

    It's very annoying when using box mobile (android) that when I want to send a file it opens the other apps inside the box instance and not in their own processes. For example a photo gets opened in f-stop which then shares to social media app but then all have to back out to get back to the box folder I started in and I can't keep any of those apps open where they were which in this case prevents adding a second photo to the same posts. I don't see this same trapped behavior in other apps.

  3. Option to disable preview of PDFs on phone

    When I open PDF on iPhone it displays correctly but box preview seems to be ignoring multiply/darken layers and just display them without this. This causes white boxes and images being cut one from another.
    Option to disable preview would be nice. This is the folder https://app.box.com/s/qj947h7q0jri0r1hp3lm9dlo9zzjtu2z - first file displays badly on iPhone preview of the link

    Hi, 

    thank you for your feedback. This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap. After reviewing the shared folder and files we can confirm that preview works fine now. 

    In case of any other questions feature requests or ideas please reach out to us.
    Cheers,

  4. I would like to be able to take wide lens photos in Box Capture for iOS.

    I work in the real estate business and used to take a lot of photos with Box Capture for iOS. But, apparently Box Capture only uses the standard lens of my iPhone 11 Pro. Is there a possibility that with an upgrade we will be able to use the wide lens and tele lens also?
    Thanks in advance for your response.

    We are not currently planning to implement this feature on mobile in the next 6-12 months. We will update this issue as we continue to explore the functionality.

  6. Allow default to full screen view on iPad horizontal view (like portrait view)

    I like to view box in full screen and because I use landscape view often, I have to hit the double arrow every time I go to a page. In portrait view it automatically goes to full screen view. I'd like an option to automatically go to full screen in landscape.

  7. Mobile: The operation of accessing Box from an Office application and opening a file requires increased security.

    Access Box from an Office application and open the file.
    Current status,The contents can be copied and pasted regardless of the Enterprise setting.
    This will lead to the leakage of the content without the intention of the administrator.

    They need to control the copying and pasting of content when you access Box from an Office application and open a file.

  8. When we open a PDF with the Box app (Box for EMM) on iPad, the Activity column appears on the right side of the screen.

    When we open a PDF with the Box app (Box for EMM) on iPad, the Activity column appears on the right side of the screen.
    It takes a lot of work to maximize this PDF, as you have to make one click each time.
    We would like to prevent Activity from being displayed by default when previewing a PDF.

    If we use our iPad vertically, Activity will not be displayed, but it is assumed that we will use it horizontally.

  9. 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.

  10. Folder transition improvement in Box for iOS, including EMM

    [Feature Request]
    Please improve the folder transition when selecting a file on iOS and opening it with Box for iOS (including EMM).

    • Please be able to show a shortcut to any folder at open-in
    • Please be able to specify the folder to be displayed at open-in

    [Request Background]
    The folder displayed in Open In is always the root folder of the user, and it is cumbersome and inefficient to reach the desired folder, which has an impact on business operations.

    I want to use the above method to improve efficiency.

    I would like the ability to open documents from the Box iPad app in new tabs. Chrome allows me to do a long hold and be given the option to open in a new tab. This would be a nice function in the iPad app.

  16. Ability to remove collections from mobile

    Ability to remove collection on mobile

    Mobile Application doesn't allow users to remove collection. Users need to remove it from Box WebApp at this moment. It would be better to remove it within the mobile application.

  17. select default name for auto uploads from mobile

    When images are uploaded from my phone to Box, they are named IMG_12345.JPG. I'd like to have the date in the file name (this is the setting for Sync.com uploads, and if I recall correctly last I used it, Dropbox.com).
    Ideally, users would be able to choose their desired naming structure but datetime would still be a big improvement over a sequential number.
    Thanks,
    Jase

  18. Ability to open password protected files from mobile devices

    Until a few weeks ago, password protected files could be opened through the mobile app from a mobile device. Now the attempt to open a password protected file results in an error of "Decryption failed. (null). Password protected files cannot be opened from mobile device from m.box.com or www.box.com either (error is different). Seems to defeat purpose of cloud based storage since so many users depend on a mobile device to open view files from Box storage.

  19. Can't browse on mobile after setting a password for a shared link

    We can access a file by create a shared link for a file in Box Web App without "Password Protect" for "People with the link" and opening the URL in a web browser on a mobile device.

    Then, when the shared link is set to "Password Protect" from the Web App and then opened again on the mobile device, the message "This shared file or folder has been deleted" is displayed and the file cannot be accessed.
    The expected behavior is to display the password entry screen.

    The workaround for this issue is to clear the browser cache, and the…

  20. Box Capture File Name

    I want the file names of Box Capture pictures to be "date and time" instead of "date and sequential numbers", just like when shooting with the Box app.
    Example:
    Box Capture: "2021-01-11_001.jpg"
    Box (Take Photo or Video): "Image 2021-01-11 14.00.00.jpg"

    Currently, the file names conflict and the files become messed up order, especially when several people share a folder and take pictures.

    I would appreciate if you could improve it.
    Thanks.
