  1. No permite validar la cuenta con foldersync en android

    Me solicita un código, lo obtengo y pido validarlo y me reponde "hubo un error intentalo mas tarde". Lo intenté varias veces con el mismo resultado.

  2. Box drains my iphone 7 battery, even though it shouldn't be open or running in the background

    Each morning I use a "Numbers" app file which is saved to Box on my iphone so that I can use it on my MacBook pro. The problem is whilst I haven't directly opened the Box app to do this save, it opens and continues to run in the background and drain the battery (60% in an hour is typical). Eventhough in the app settings "Background app refresh" is off as is "Notifications", I can only stop this drain if I turn the phone off and back on again. I am running ios 14.2 and I keep all apps up-to-date.…

  3. Can't browse on mobile after setting a password for a shared link

    We can access a file by create a shared link for a file in Box Web App without "Password Protect" for "People with the link" and opening the URL in a web browser on a mobile device.

    Then, when the shared link is set to "Password Protect" from the Web App and then opened again on the mobile device, the message "This shared file or folder has been deleted" is displayed and the file cannot be accessed.
    The expected behavior is to display the password entry screen.

    The workaround for this issue is to clear the browser cache, and the…

  4. Count Box for EMM login as login in User Report

    Count Box for EMM login as login in User Report
    Box for EMM login is not counted as "Login" in User Statistics report since Box for EMM keep login information. It should be counted every time users login on Box for EMM.

  5. 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.

  6. When I click on a photo in Browse mode to bring it full frame, by default a side panel comes up labeled "Activity." i

    I am running v.5.1.4 IOS for ipad. When I click on a photo in Browse mode to bring it full frame, by default a side panel comes up labeled "Activity." This is very annoying, as I constantly have to click on the photo to make it full frame and eliminate the side panel. My suggestion: this should be a user option, rather than a default that cannot be changed. Most users do not use this Activity feature; why is it the default setting? This is a change on this new version 5.1.4. Please fix this on the next version.

  7. Shared link works on desktop but fails on mobile

    I received a Box link from a contact in the form https://app.box.com/s/[string]/folder/[string]. Clicking this link in iOS Mail app opened a Box web page in Safari with the message "This shared file or folder has been removed." I tried to resolve this by installing the Box app. Clicking the link now opened the Box app with a message telling me I must log in to access my content. This would not be possible for recipients without a Box account.

    In macOS Mail, clicking the link opened a Box web page in Safari correctly listing the shared files. Without logging…

  9. Ability to remove collections from mobile

    Ability to remove collection on mobile

    Mobile Application doesn't allow users to remove collection. Users need to remove it from Box WebApp at this moment. It would be better to remove it within the mobile application.

  10. 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.

  11. File Picker utilizing mobile deep link for Box iOS/Android App

    Dropbox has a library called Chooser, which makes it easy to select files in Dropbox from custom Mobile apps. ( https://www.dropbox.com/developers/chooser#ios )

    Dropbox Chooser uses mobile deep link bidirectionally to move between a custom app and the Dropbox app. As for Box app, mobile deep link is one-way; the Box app can be opened but it is not possible to select files and go back to the custom app.

    The major advantages of using Dropbox Chooser for service providers are as follows.
    - No need to make additional UI for the file chooser
    - No need to authenticate or handle…

  12. iPhone default preview mode

    With the recent iOS app update, all PDF’s when previewed in Landscape mode display the “activity” screen on the right hand side by default. This is an unwanted feature and I would prefer defaults to show the "activity" screen collapsed.

  14. In App PDF reader changes make the app frustrating to use

    Recently the UI for the PDF reader changed. I use Box primarily to read review copies of comic books, which DC Comics only make available to view in the app. Until recently this worked fine on my iPad, displaying the full page as I flipped through. I even liked the page flip of the interface enough that I upload other review copies to read them in the app. About three weeks ago, something in the UI changed, and now it no longer displays the full page, and I have to scroll on each page to read the whole thing. In…

  15. 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.

  20. Tag and Metadata support still missing on Mobile?

    Hello, new user here evaluating Box.com for several cloud integrations within our company. I am searching the community for info on searching/filtering by tags and/or metadata via the Box mobile apps. I am confused... I am seeing replies back from Box support dating all the way back to 2017 saying that tag/metadata support on mobile is one of the most requested features. Yet neither seem to have been implemented as of Q2 2020? Am I missing something? What is the justification for lack of attention to such fundamental (and highly requested) features for your mobile apps? Whatever the case, it…
