  1. Support custom objects via the mobile Salesforce and Box integration.

    The Box and Salesforce integration for Salesforce mobile does not support custom objects at all so we had to create a deep link workaround that redirects to the associated folder within the box mobile experience (this also requires some salesforce coding to populate a field with the corresponding folderID). This is not a seamless experience....it is a clunky redirect.

    Also, you are not able to create the corresponding box folder for the first time from the mobile experience....you have to create the box folder from the desktop from within the box integration within salesforce first, before you are able to…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. Box for iOS shows activity bar as default onscreen

    When using box, the activity and comment tab is always showing onscreen. I must hit the full screen tab each time I open a new document. This should be defaulted to full screen, and a selectable feature to show comments, not the other way around imo.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. From Mobile apps, be able to stop autoread to next files

    It is when we put several mp3 files into a box folder or share multiple files with others. Then, when accessed these through the box app on a phone .... If we play one, the phone doesn't stop at the end, but goes on to play the next mp3 in the folder or the list of files shared.

    Having just that one feature is indesirable. It generates less traffic to the apps and less exposure to Box other services ... I suppose the assumption was possibly for listening to music. But when we share podcasts or voice recordings, the current…

  18. 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.

  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…
