  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  3. 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)

    This is currently not planned, but we will consider with additional customer demand.

  7. Expose EXIF Metadata in the Box Webapp when Media (Photo, etc.) is Uploaded via Box Mobile App

    Currently we do not expose media EXIF metadata (location info, camera type, etc.) for files uploaded to Box using the standard Box mobile apps (we do for media uploaded through Capture though).

    This request is to provide a similar experience like we've already implemented with Capture.

  8. 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.

  12. User can download a image via "View only" link on mobile browser

    User can download a image by pressing the image and selecting "Add Photo"/"Download Image" when opening the image via "View only" shared link on mobile devices's (iPhone or Android) web browser .
    Even if user has "View only" permission, there is no way to prevent downloading a image file on mobile browser. We need a way to prevent downloading a image on mobile browser.

  13. Box for iOS support for "Universal Control"

    Box for iOS doesn't support "Universal Control" in iOS 15 and Mac OS 12.x: this means that I can't drag my cursor from my Mac to my iPad Pro and use it to select and copy text from documents.

    Could you please update your app to support the latest OS features?

  15. Continuous Capture Zoom Out iOS

    In continuous capture in the Box iOS app, the amount you are able to zoom out is limited, compared to when using the general camera on phones. It would be great if this limit did not exist.

    Note: When using a single photo mode (not continuous capture), this zoom out limitation does not seem to exist.

  16. Ability to sort folders/file when choosing where to upload images on Mobile app

    When trying to upload multiple photos from my phone to Box, it does not allow me to SORT the folders/file in order to find the folder/file I want the photos placed in. I am forced to manually scroll through literally 100s of folders - which seem to be in order of most recently used which is not helpful - until I find it. You should be able to sort the folders, at minimum to put them in alphabetical order or by date etc so that you can find the place to upload them more easily.

  17. Box Mobile - GPS coordinates and Date Taken

    Box Mobile – GPS coordinates metadata location. In Box capture, capture saves location metadata about the photo, the longitude and latitude coordinates as Box metadata. The Box Mobile app photo does not save location as metadata on Box but instead you have to access the File Information to get the longitude and latitude of the photo. This is a request to update the Box Mobile to save the location coordinates (metadata) as metadata in Box in addition to file information.

    Also, Box app doesn’t capture the metadata for “Date Taken”

  20. Box Mobile - Hyperlink files embedded within Excel

    While opening linked files within an excel file on the Box mobile application.

    This is happening due to the current preview architecture for excel files and nested/linked files within the Box application. Although you can 'see' the desired file visible on the screen, within your current workflow, the Box app only recognizes the original file as being 'opened' which is why the original files are being saved and not the file open currently.

    Thanks
