  1. 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

  2. Ability to view the appropriate number of files on the Mobile app

    I use Box to deliver Photo Proofs to clients. It is crazy that there hasn't been a proper update would allow me to see their 'favorites'. Instead I have to rely on "Comments", which for clients on the go and using the Mobile App, is usually a hasel. I'm also trying to figure out why the script for correcting the Usage Space has not been rolled out across the board. I'm still waiting for the script to run on my account, because I'm definitely not using 40 gigs of my 50 gigs right now.

  3. Want more thumbnails of PDFs on Android devices

    Unlike Drop Box, which shows PDF thumbnails, Box's mobile app doesn't show thumbnails for Android. If it's iOS version, I can display PDF thumbnails.

    Since I have to open each file and check the PDF contents, it takes time and is very inconvenient, so I would like to modify it so that the thumbnails can be displayed in the Box app for Android.

  4. 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.

  5. Search folder or keyword with deep link

    Currently deep links have 3 syntax's: boxapp://sharedlink?url=[sharedlink] and boxapp://file?id=[fileid] and boxapp://folder?id=[folderid]. A search one would allow the mobile user to search off their keywords and not have to know the ID.

  6. UI enhancements for easy viewing of pdf files on iPhone & iPod

    When displaying pdf files using the Box App on iPhone & iPod, after scrolling to view the top of the file, the app seems to take control over the display and auto-scrolls the file upward causing the top of the file to be outside of the screen. Is there any way to correct this? Thank you! 8-)

  7. Ability to add and remove columns from box note tables from the box app on iPhone

    I need to be able to add and remove columns from box note tables from the box app on my iPhone. This feature is currently not available. To add or remove rows and columns from box note tables I have to use a web browser.

  8. Ability to access Sub-links under shared folders on mobile

    Our agency staff commonly sends out content links to customers by navigating to a file or folder under an existing shared folder link, then copying that link and directing customers to the specific content without creating an additional shared link. This is valuable to us because we don't want hundreds of shared links, the original content owner may not be available and we want to direct our customers as quickly and precisely as possible.

    However, we found that there is an issue with this method. Those sub-links work just fine for someone with a desktop browser, but if you try…

  9. 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. Add an option to create PDF/A docs from scans on iOS

    The PDF/A format is archival. As we are scanning documents to save using the improved "Scan Document" function in Box, it would great if we could (either on the fly or as a static setting) choose to save PDF files as PDF/A.

  11. (Android) Usage of Android App Bundles

    This would reduce the installation size of Box by a significant amount on Android devices. I personally suffer from inadequate storage space, so this would be extremely useful for users like me.

    Here is a relevant link: https://developer.android.com/platform/technology/app-bundle

  14. 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.

  15. PDF bookmark support for Android devices

    We would like to see full implementation of PDF bookmark support for Android devices, similar to what the current iOS application offers. At present, there is an icon & text that indicates bookmarks should be accessible for PDFs, but in actuality the feature non-functional and not supported yet.

  16. box app should open other apps in their own instance

    It's very annoying when using box mobile (android) that when I want to send a file it opens the other apps inside the box instance and not in their own processes. For example a photo gets opened in f-stop which then shares to social media app but then all have to back out to get back to the box folder I started in and I can't keep any of those apps open where they were which in this case prevents adding a second photo to the same posts. I don't see this same trapped behavior in other apps.

  17. 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,

  18. I would like to be able to take wide lens photos in Box Capture for iOS.

    I work in the real estate business and used to take a lot of photos with Box Capture for iOS. But, apparently Box Capture only uses the standard lens of my iPhone 11 Pro. Is there a possibility that with an upgrade we will be able to use the wide lens and tele lens also?
    Thanks in advance for your response.

  19. Inability to lock files in Box Mobile

    Box for Mobile app needs to allow users to lock files while editing otherwise it creates work to manually reconcile the differences from all the duplicates that are created. This renders working on common documents by many users ineffective.
