  1. Convert Email Attachment to Box Link when forwarding email

    When a file (not in Box) is received by email, the user would like to forward it along as a Box link, rather than a file itself.

    It is cumbersome to download the attachment, then upload it to Box, generate a link, and forward the email with the newly generated link.

    Ideally, I would like a button in the email app (Outlook or Gmail) that allows me to forward email and convert attachment(s) to shared links.

    Thank you for the suggestion! We will monitor this request for additional demand. For now, it is not planned.

  2. Ability to preview a locked file (locked by an outside program, i.e. Excel) in the iOS app

    Currently, opening a locked file in the webapp will give you the option to download, at which point Excel asks for a password.

    The iOS app does not show an error message that the file is locked by another program, and users cannot open or preview the file.

  5. Provide separate Mobile security settings in Admin console (or API) for EMM and Public apps.

    The ability to provide both EMM and public app but with different security configuration for each. Public is read only and EMM would allow editing. Right now, they either provide editing capabilities via EMM and lock out a majority of users or provide Preview only capabilities with no editing to all users.

  7. 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

  8. 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。
    (Box for EMM/Boxアプリを利用しています。)

    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.

  9. 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.

  12. Better detailed logging for iOS app that's available to customers for troubleshooting.

    Would like an advanced logging that can be initiated on the iOS Box for EMM app to help capture why uploads fail. It is surprising that there is no “verbose” logging available for the iOS app.

  15. App launcher should use web URL, open in Box App, and encourage user to download Box App if not present.

    I can create a link that will open the box app by using what is known as an applink. This technique is sometimes called Deep Linking.

    'boxapp://' opens box on iOS or Android.

    BUT traditionally this has left developers needing to try to catch and handle what happens when the Box app isn't already installed (which is also people's very first experience of the launcher app). This typically involves time-outs and other such messiness. By default if the app is not present, no helpful message is given. I note at present your html representation of content shows the 'get box…

    Thank you for your thorough description!

    We support deep linking and universal links on iOS. All regular Box links should with the Box app today as long as their app invokes universal links the right way (ex: redirects ignore universal links).

  16. Ability to control what file information is visible when viewing file list

    Some users have mentioned that it is more important to them to see the entire file name rather than have it truncated and see the timestamp and other details. The ability to choose what is visible on this page might be one way to resolve this.

    This is an intentional design decision. We will re-evaluate with additional user feedback.

  17. Attach files from Box mobile app and not Files app.

    Since the introduction of the Files app, it is impossible to access Box from an email except through the Files app.

    If you are telling me that, post-Files, it will be impossible to attach a document from Box to an existing email chain, so be it. But that is an impediment to using Box as our mobile document management system.

    Thank you for your feedback! You should be able to access Box via the Files app integration in other apps. Contact Support with any questions.

  18. 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)

  20. Mobile Preview log

    Currently, mobile app's Preview action of some type of documents is logged as "download." It doesn't show actual actions, so it should be logged as "Preview."

    On Mobile, we use the download API call within the content SDK to grab the file for Preview purposes, which is why it is recorded as a download.
