  2. Showing PDF annotations on mobile applications

    We would like the ability to show PDF annotations on both iOS and android, from different PDF applications. This would include Adobe PDF and Nuance PDF to name a couple.

    Currently, when a PDF annotation is added from Adobe or another PDF software application, it is not possible to view that PDF annotation from the Box mobile application. You would have to download the PDF to the device locally to view any annotations.

  3. PDF bookmark support for Android devices

    We would like to see full implementation of PDF bookmark support for Android devices, similar to what the current iOS application offers. At present, there is an icon & text that indicates bookmarks should be accessible for PDFs, but in actuality the feature non-functional and not supported yet.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Inability to lock files in Box Mobile

    Box for Mobile app needs to allow users to lock files while editing otherwise it creates work to manually reconcile the differences from all the duplicates that are created. This renders working on common documents by many users ineffective.

  19. ipad app

    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.
