    We’ll re-evaluate this request with increased demand. However, it is not a priority.

    We don’t plan on adding any new MDM providers. However, if you can deploy a managed app config it will work. Let us know if you have any pending questions.

  4. Ability to set a custom attribute in the Box Capture application

    We would like the ability to set an attribute in the Box Capture application to automatically name photos with a desired store name.

    For example, rather than automatically name the photo 2016-05-23_001.jpg, we would like to have the option to set the default name via an attribute or prefix that would enable them to more easily identify, search on, and organize them.

    As an example they would like the option in the Box Capture application to be able to Set Photo Name Prefix to "Boise" so that the resulting photos would be saved to Box as: Boise2016-05-23001.jpg; Boise…

    Thanks for the feedback. We’ll be exploring a better way of providing value in the naming convention of repeated saving actions within a session.

  5. Enhance Excel Previews

    When you have downloads rights (Editor) and preview an Excel file with the iOS Box app, it will use iOS's native excel viewer. The native Excel viewer does not correctly display the excel file. (graphs, overlays, comments etc.)
    When you do not have download rights (previewer) the iOS app will display a PDF converted version of the excel, which handles previews better than the native viewer.

    Thank you for the feedback! This is not prioritized on our Mobile roadmap.

  7. Preview in icon rather than the normal file type icon display

    We uses several files, often with long naming conventions, within folders. We generally access these files through iPads while working remotely.

    Preview often does not load for all of our files so we would like to have the file type icon that normally is next to the file name be a small preview of the file. This would allow our agents to quickly see a glimpse of the file before having to load the preview for all of the files.

    The loading time for the file and folder tree would cause massive performance issues if they were thumbnail views. That being said, we may explore alternative methods to resolving the long file name issue.

  8. 'Choose A Destination Folder' UI: Add Search & Sorting Capabilities

    Users find it annoying that they can't use the standard search/sort functions from the Box app when they're in the 'Choose a Destination Folder' modal.

  9. Expose EXIF Metadata in the Box Webapp when Media (Photo, etc.) is Uploaded via Box Mobile App

    Currently we do not expose media EXIF metadata (location info, camera type, etc.) for files uploaded to Box using the standard Box mobile apps (we do for media uploaded through Capture though).

    This request is to provide a similar experience like we've already implemented with Capture.

  11. Password Change Prompt on Mobile Login

    If an end user must reset their password (either mandated by admin or enterprise settings), we would like that notification to appear when the user tries to log in on the mobile app

    We would also like a notification when the password is going to expire (i.e., your password will expire in 7 days)

    This is not currently planned. We will let you know if anything changes.

  14. Device Limiting

    We would like users to limit the number of devices a user can have connected to their Box account at a single time; but would like users to be able to manage those devices themselves, so that when a user gets a new phone they can "remove" their old device from their account settings and log into the new phone without having to contact an administrator.

    Thank you for this request!

    We will review this with additional demand.

  15. Push Notifications for @Mentions

    Box push notifications on iOS are very limited currently and only send the user a push notification when...

    1. There's a comment added to a file and they're the most recent uploader
    2. They've been added to a folder

    The most logical other push notification to add would be for @mentions which, in theory, would increase overall adoption of comments as well.

  16. View Access Stats For Contents and Folders from Mobile App

    We would like to be able to see Access Stats with in the Box for iOS or the Android application. While this is possible from the web client the iOS app currently does not allow to view access stats.

  19. Ability to support previewing dynamic HTML5 files

    Our marketing team would like to deliver dynamic HTML5 collateral that includes animated components.

    Ideal scenario is to have the sales team be able to present content directly from Box (via tablet) without the need of a third party solution.

    Introducing additional solutions opens up more risk in terms of sensitive content leakage.

    At this time, the mobile team has several higher priorities, but we can re-examine this with additional customer demand.

  20. Choose document quality and size upon upload

    For photos and videos you can choose whether the size is small, medium or large. It would be great to have this functionality available for documents as well.
