  1. Add an identifier that ADFS can find that app is Box for EMM in User-Agent.

    Could you please consider adding an identifier that ADFS can find that app is Box for EMM in User-Agent.

    We found Box for EMM does not include any identifier like "Box for EMM" in its User-Agent when doing authentication with MAM checked-in. We just only allow access that "Box for EMM" includes in User-Agent. Therefore, ADFS cannot determine whether an application is Box for EMM or not and the user is unable to access from Box for EMM.

  2. Lock files from remote devices (Smartphone and tablets).

    Today, the unability to lock a file from smartphone and tablet is a huge problem for using Box by fields teams, creating many conflicts on files.
    Indeed, our fields teams don't want to use Box because this functionality is not vailable.

  4. File request option for mobile App

    Mobile App does not allow selecting "File Request" giving individuals browser upload capabilities without needing to get a box account. Why is that function missing in the App but available on the Desktop browser version?

    This is currently unplanned as we’re expanding the functionality of file request making it harder to create/manage them from Mobile. However the submission experience is fully mobile optimized. Thank you!

  5. Custom Branding not displaying on mobile

    Please include the same custom branding when viewing the mobile site that is displayed in the app and desktop browser. This would bring custom branding to be consistent throughout the BOX UI and lacking on the mobile version.

  6. Make Shared Folder Sorting Consistent Across Devices

    Viewing a shared link on a mobile device ignores the sort preference that is established internally and only shows folders/files alphabetically.

    I cannot think of a single example of how it would be beneficial to specifically alter the established folder/file sorting method to default to "Alphabetical" merely because the folder is being viewed on mobile.

    Sort method should not be "device" dependent. Instead, it should be consistent across all platforms—especially given the fact that the shared-link folder/file list sort method cannot be chosen at the shared-user end.

  7. @mention dose not work well in Flick input

    @mention dose not work well in Japanese Mobile app(Box for iPhone and iPad),when I use "Flick input".

    When I use "PC keyboard input",that function work well.
    But,when I use Japanese "Flick input",that function does not work well.

    I strongly demand that improvement.

  9. Upload more than photos in Box Mobile for iPhone

    We need an option to upload directly from Files app/Microsoft products via the Box Mobile App. Currently you can only upload boxnotes and photos directly from the Box Mobile app and to upload anything else you must go to a particular app and upload it from there.

    On Android you can do this, why not iPhone?

  10. Support Intune Managed Browser

    Currently, Box doesn't support Intune managed Browser. There are different behavior from a supported mobile browser like Safari, Chrome. If Intune Managed browser app is only Intune Browser, a user cannot use Box properly.

  11. Fix iOS Microsoft Office Security - No Pin Required

    If you have Box Mobile App installed and a Pin is enforced, your data is protected by pin every time you launch the app. If you install iOS Excel or Word and then sign into the application/authorize, anytime you launch word or Excel you are not prompted to sign in again and there is no passcode enforced on either of those apps. They have full access to all documents in your Box account. Box Device Trust and EMM will not enforce or protect this either and is easily bypassed since this is an Application Integration, you don't even need Box…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. See a file's full folder path when it appears in the search results

    Currently if you search for a folder in the app, it only shows its immediate parent folder in the results. It should show the full file path.

    On mobile, the real estate is much smaller than web. Our goal is simplicity, and this doesn’t align with that. Most of our cases are trying to find the most important tasks/updates or recent files
