  1. 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-)

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. + 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. <Added the ability to download in bulk using the Box for iPhone app>

    We are using the Box app on our iPhone.
    Currently, we can't select multiple items (such as image files) and download them.

    We are convinced that it would be even more convenient if it were possible to select multiple files and download them all at once.
    If it is not possible to support all file types, could you please add a bulk download function for image files only?

    iPhoneでBoxアプリを利用しています。
    現在は、アイテム(画像ファイル等)を複数選択し、ダウンロードができません。

    複数のファイルを選択して一括ダウンロードが可能になると、更に便利になると確信しています。
    すべてのファイルタイプに対応することが難しい場合、画像ファイルだけでも、一括ダウンロード機能を追加していただけませんでしょうか。

  12. Add an option to create PDF/A docs from scans on iOS

    The PDF/A format is archival. As we are scanning documents to save using the improved "Scan Document" function in Box, it would great if we could (either on the fly or as a static setting) choose to save PDF files as PDF/A.

  13. Candidate destinations are not displayed when inviting files to collaborate(Box for iOS)

    Box for iPhone/iPad and Box for EMM don't offer suggested recipients when you invite collaborators to a file.

    When inviting a collaboration to a folder, a list of possible recipients is displayed. Please do the same in the mentioned app.

  14. Box Capture App needs a back button

    Better navigation through the Box Capture app would be great. Since there is no BACK button, there is no way to easily navigate through the application which is a great. Having this option would make it easy to toggle back and forth between sub-folders and help speed up uploading information to their corresponding folders - Henry

  15. (Android) Usage of Android App Bundles

    This would reduce the installation size of Box by a significant amount on Android devices. I personally suffer from inadequate storage space, so this would be extremely useful for users like me.

  16. When selecting a folder to move/copy items to in the Box for EMM/Box app, please make it possible to select from collections as well.

    When moving/copying data in Box using iPhone, we need to point to a specific folder from the top hierarchy, which is time-consuming.
    When selecting a folder to move/copy these data to, please make it so that the selection can start from the hierarchy where the data is.
    Also, when selecting a folder to move/copy to, please make it possible to select from collections as well.
    (We use the Box for EMM/Box application).

    iPhoneからBox内にあるデータを移動/コピーする場合において、トップの階層から指定のフォルダを指示する必要があり手間がかかります。
    これらのデータの移動/コピー先を選択する際は、データのある階層から選択がスタートできるように設定して欲しい。
    また、移動/コピー先のフォルダを選択する際に、コレクションからも選択できるようにしてください。

    Collections are a link to a file, rather than the location where the file is saved. In order to accomplish the above ask, please select the file in question and “add” it to the desired collection.

  17. Document Scanning - Name document prior to upload

    Currently not able to name a document or file prior to upload using document scanning & only renaming after it has been uploaded. Development requested to be able to name the file upon scan.

  20. PDF Bookmarks

    Please add back the ability to use built in PDF Bookmarks to the Box IOS App. This ability was present up until about 2 months ago now when apparently a library used to render PDF's was upgraded causing this ability to be lost.

    This has been an important feature for us as our users access large 50+ page PDF documents on a regular basis. During a meeting when directed to access a specific page within the document and bookmarks still worked, a user could simply select the bookmark which would send them to the exact page needed. Now users must…
