  1. OCR support for Japanese in Android

    OCR cannot recognize Japanese language in Android devices.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500000212121-Using-Document-Scanning

    It would be very helpful if mobile app can recognize Japanese language when using Document Scanning.

  2. Seamlessly take and upload a large number of photos with Box mobile app

    Please add the ability to take many photos in a row with the Box mobile app and the newly added Capture mode (widget).
    In the Box Capture app, this could be done by turning off the review.

  3. home button on iOS app

    When I get many folders deep into Box on iOS, it would be helpful to have a home button to go all the way back to the top of my folder structure. Currently I occasionally have to click many times to navigate back to the top.
    Thanks!

  4. 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.

  5. Ability to reduce file size when image is scanned via the Box mobile app

    Ability to reduce file size when image is scanned via the Box mobile app.
    - Currently, the size of PDF files obtained when we scan a document via the Box mobile app, is very large.
    - Example: Box app on iPhone file size - 7.4MB; Apple's "import from iPhone" file size: -3.9MB. - Could we have the ability to resize / reduce quality of these files?

  7. Box available as Service on iOS Shortcuts app

  8. (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

  9. Option to not leave the data on the device

    If the user presses the + button and selects "Take photos or videos" and encounters an upload error when uploading the photos or videos taken, those files are automatically saved in the device's library.
    Since the data remaining on the device poses a security risk, you need an option to not leave the data on the device in the application settings.

  10. + button should be disabled with "Restrict content creation"

    Users belonging to tenant with "Restrict content creation - Only admins can create and delete first-level folders, files, and bookmarks" setting enabled can see "+" button for adding content on their root folder screen of Box for iOS mobile app.
    They can operate through "+" button, but it fails due to the restriction.

    The customer believe that "+" button should be grayed out if this restriction is in effect.
    The customer wants the same to happen because "+" button is grayed out in the folder that the user is accessing with VIEWER privilege.

  11. Ability to resize photos uploaded from Box Capture

    The size of the photos taken and uploaded by Box Capture is about 5MB each.
    In addition to Box, we also sync uploaded items to our on-premise server, so there is a capacity control on the server side, and a 5MB image is too large.

    We would like to be able to choose some upper limit of capacity when we take a picture with Box Capture.
    (We would like to have the ability to automatically resize the image when shooting in Box Capture).

    (e.g. high quality mode, standard quality mode, low quality mode, etc.)


    <Box Captureからアップロードされた写真をリサイズする機能>
    Box Captureで撮影し、アップロードされた写真のサイズは、1枚約5MB程度です。
    Boxのほかに、オンプレサーバーにもアップロードしたアイテムを同期しているのでサーバー側に容量の制御があり、5MBの画像は大きすぎます。

  15. Support SSO with certificate authentication in ios app

    Authenticate using the In-App Browser when performing single sign-on using the Box for iOS App. Authentication using an X.509 Certificate is not available. In-App Browser does not accept certificate authentication requests.

    Other iOS apps (Gmail, Slack, etc.) support certificate authentication, so I would like Box for iOS to support it as well.

  16. 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.

  17. <Added the ability to download in bulk using the Box for iPhone app>

    We are using the Box app on our iPhone.
    Currently, we can't select multiple items (such as image files) and download them.

    We are convinced that it would be even more convenient if it were possible to select multiple files and download them all at once.
    If it is not possible to support all file types, could you please add a bulk download function for image files only?

    iPhoneでBoxアプリを利用しています。
    現在は、アイテム(画像ファイル等)を複数選択し、ダウンロードができません。

    複数のファイルを選択して一括ダウンロードが可能になると、更に便利になると確信しています。
    すべてのファイルタイプに対応することが難しい場合、画像ファイルだけでも、一括ダウンロード機能を追加していただけませんでしょうか。

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
