  2. Ability to preview multi-page image files (.tif, .mp4, .png, .jpg) on mobile.

    Right now, only the first page appears and there's now way to view the rest of the file while on the app

  3. Integrate iOS 9 PDF Markup feature with Box iOS app and/or Capture app

    There is an iOS 9 feature, Markup, which is currently not available from within Box app. This iOS 9 feature would allow any user to open a PDF from the Box app and provide the ability to annotate, markup, and sign.

    We will consider supporting Box annotations as those will remain with the document across all Box services.

  7. Users should be able to set up 2FA on their phones

    We invite external users who only have phones. However, we are set up for 2FA. That means these users need to find a computer to login via the webapp to set up 2FA before we can begin collaborating. This is an issue. The mobile interface should allow 2FA to be set up.

  8. Ability to restrict access to specific folders from mobile devices

    We need to be able to restrict our users from viewing secure content on their phones. But not all of our content is secure. We would like to provide the convenience to our users of accessing their files via box, but restrict specific, secure, project related files from mobile access.

  10. Showing PDF annotations on mobile applications

    We would like the ability to show PDF annotations on both iOS and android, from different PDF applications. This would include Adobe PDF and Nuance PDF to name a couple.

    Currently, when a PDF annotation is added from Adobe or another PDF software application, it is not possible to view that PDF annotation from the Box mobile application. You would have to download the PDF to the device locally to view any annotations.

  11. Option to disable preview of PDFs on phone

    When I open PDF on iPhone it displays correctly but box preview seems to be ignoring multiply/darken layers and just display them without this. This causes white boxes and images being cut one from another.
    Option to disable preview would be nice. This is the folder https://app.box.com/s/qj947h7q0jri0r1hp3lm9dlo9zzjtu2z - first file displays badly on iPhone preview of the link

    Hi, 

    thank you for your feedback. This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap. After reviewing the shared folder and files we can confirm that preview works fine now. 

    In case of any other questions feature requests or ideas please reach out to us.
    Cheers,

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Search function included in the Copy or Move option for ipad

    User on ipad report not seeing the option to search for files on the move or copy options like they do in web app. Makes it difficult to move files to destination by going through the file tree list.

  17. Music Playlists (Audio, MP3)

    I'd like to see the ability to create multiple named playlists for the Box iOS mobile app. Currently I can only favorite songs which places them into one large playlist. I'd like to be able to create multiple playlists for different genres of music or for the activity I'm engaged in.

  18. [android] mutiple directory sync

    Hello,
    in mobile app , can we have option to have multiple from-to pairs of folder to sync instead only one?
    Eg. I'd like to have sync from/to mobile
    - documents,
    - photos
    - music
    - exported data from app 1
    - backup from app 2
    - etc
    all of those are in different places on mobile device and they will go to different places on box.

    If you want, can you check nextcloud android app (auto upload section) for inspiration.

    We will not be supporting additional EMM features for Android Device Admin; moving forward, we are supporting EMM feature requests on Android Enterprise.

    APK/Device Admin was announced as deprecated in 2017, and deprecated in last year’s update (P), and this year’s Android update (Q) no longer supports APK/Device Admin at all. From Google: “Starting with Android 9 (API level 28), some admin policies will be marked as deprecated when invoked by a device admin. We recommend you start to prepare now for this change. To learn more and see the migration options, read Device admin deprecation” (https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/admin/device-admin).

    Android Enterprise was released on Android 5.0 (L). Learn more here:

  20. Quarantined files indicator for Box mobile app

    Quarantined files currently show a red exclamation indicator icon + tooltip “This file is under quarantine” on webapp, but NOT on mobile.

    This is an issue for users (especially external collaborators) who will try to access these quarantined files on mobile, but not understand why they can’t access it.
