  1. Single page view option for Box for Android

    In Box for Android - make single page fit to screen an option for previewing PDFs.

    Currently there is either 2 page - which creates a lot of blank space on the top and bottom - or the thumbnail grid - which is good for navigating to a page but not helpful for review of a single page.

  2. support more video formats : VOB, MTS

    Panasonic store videos in MTS format, it's popular
    Ripping a DVD outputs VOB, popular as well
    On the road video reviewing would be very useful as we can do that in Dropbox and get easily accustomed to such facility.

  4. Make Shared Folder Sorting Consistent Across Devices

    Viewing a shared link on a mobile device ignores the sort preference that is established internally and only shows folders/files alphabetically.

    I cannot think of a single example of how it would be beneficial to specifically alter the established folder/file sorting method to default to "Alphabetical" merely because the folder is being viewed on mobile.

    Sort method should not be "device" dependent. Instead, it should be consistent across all platforms—especially given the fact that the shared-link folder/file list sort method cannot be chosen at the shared-user end.

  5. Music Playlists (Audio, MP3)

    I'd like to see the ability to create multiple named playlists for the Box iOS mobile app. Currently I can only favorite songs which places them into one large playlist. I'd like to be able to create multiple playlists for different genres of music or for the activity I'm engaged in.

  6. Add Find in page ability in Mobile app

    We'd like to add ctrl+F ability when previewing files in the mobile app.

    The many use of box on my iPhone is to contain data in multiple locations so that I can look information up when I am not near my laptop. Many files are quite large and without a search feature, it is almost impossible to find the data. In the past, I have had to import the data downloaded by box into another app to search.

  8. Better detailed logging for iOS app that's available to customers for troubleshooting.

    Would like an advanced logging that can be initiated on the iOS Box for EMM app to help capture why uploads fail. It is surprising that there is no “verbose” logging available for the iOS app.

  9. [android] Detailed information in transfers tab

    In transfers tab, can we get information for:
    - past uploads (eg last day)
    - failed uploads (all, until successful)
    - queued, pending transfers.

    This, mostly gives more detailed visibility for status on auto-upload settings - currently to verify if new files from auto-upload directory was synced,m we need manually check target directory and this can be tedious.

    This should be extended to also manual transfers.

  10. [android] mutiple directory sync

    Hello,
    in mobile app , can we have option to have multiple from-to pairs of folder to sync instead only one?
    Eg. I'd like to have sync from/to mobile
    - documents,
    - photos
    - music
    - exported data from app 1
    - backup from app 2
    - etc
    all of those are in different places on mobile device and they will go to different places on box.

    If you want, can you check nextcloud android app (auto upload section) for inspiration.

  11. Mobile Search doesn't work well!

    On the mobile app, I can type in the exact name of a folder or a file and search will not find it. Not sure why the algorithms are different between mobile and the web, but it is a huge usability barrier

    We will not be supporting additional EMM features for Android Device Admin; moving forward, we are supporting EMM feature requests on Android Enterprise.

    APK/Device Admin was announced as deprecated in 2017, and deprecated in last year’s update (P), and this year’s Android update (Q) no longer supports APK/Device Admin at all. From Google: “Starting with Android 9 (API level 28), some admin policies will be marked as deprecated when invoked by a device admin. We recommend you start to prepare now for this change. To learn more and see the migration options, read Device admin deprecation” (https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/admin/device-admin).

    Android Enterprise was released on Android 5.0 (L). Learn more here:

  13. Quarantined files indicator for Box mobile app

    Quarantined files currently show a red exclamation indicator icon + tooltip “This file is under quarantine” on webapp, but NOT on mobile.

    This is an issue for users (especially external collaborators) who will try to access these quarantined files on mobile, but not understand why they can’t access it.

  14. Upload more than photos in Box Mobile for iPhone

    We need an option to upload directly from Files app/Microsoft products via the Box Mobile App. Currently you can only upload boxnotes and photos directly from the Box Mobile app and to upload anything else you must go to a particular app and upload it from there.

    On Android you can do this, why not iPhone?

  15. Allow access to embedded file using LEX app (iOS)

    Customer is embedding a url to their iframe. Luckily, they could access the embedded file using their android phones from their LEX application. However, iOS users are not able to access the embedded file using their LEX app. But they can access the URL from their browser

  16. automatically upload photos android

    Be able to automatically update all photos taken on my Android phone to a folder on Box. This apparently can be done with an iPhone through Box Capture, but not on an Android.

  17. Tabbed mobile navigation

    Currently, I cannot do meaningful work on the Box mobile app. It would be amazing if we could have tabs to enable the navigation within different folders/content at the same time. One tab could be a folder, another tab previewing a doc, another tab, editing a Box Note.

  18. Support Intune Managed Browser

    Currently, Box doesn't support Intune managed Browser. There are different behavior from a supported mobile browser like Safari, Chrome. If Intune Managed browser app is only Intune Browser, a user cannot use Box properly.

  20. Device Trust: Need option to exclude Webapp from Device Trust

    Currently, when user try to enable Device Trust for Box for Office, they will need to enable "Desktop Web App & 3rd Party Apps", which enables Device Trust on Webapp too. Need a way to exclude Webapp from Device Trust when device trust for Box for Office is enabled.
