  1. Ability to set default image quality for Capture mode of Box mobile app

    With Capture mode of Box mobile app, the default value for quality is "Original", in which case the images are taken with HEIC format. This is not optimal for Windows users (as HEIC is not supported), and the workaround is to use "High" or lower quality (in which case images are saved in jpg) but each user needs to manually configure this for his/her own device. We want the ability to configure this globally from admin console.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  13. Unify nomenclature for permission levels between mobile and web clients

    We've noticed that the same feature is called differently in Desktop-browser, iOS app and Android app

    Specifically the link type 'Invited people only' is called 'People in this folder' in iOS (which I actually like better) and 'People in this file and folder' in Android

    Can you pass this feedback onto the product team? I don't think it makes sense to be inconsistent between the platforms

  14. Separate set of granular controls for Box for Mobile and Box for EMM in Mobile Tab of Enterprise Settings

    Use case: Company uses MDM provider in tandem with MFA. Presently, the Mobile tab applies to all mobile applications. They need much stricter settings for MFA users than Mobile Iron users (e.g. only allow upload/view files)

  18. 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.

  20. Box Notes section on mobile app

    Similar to the web version of Box, it would be great to have a button that takes you to all Box Notes. Having this consistency between the web app and the mobile app would help improve the user experience.
