  1. 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”

  2. 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?

  3. + 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.

  4. Candidate destinations are not displayed when inviting files to collaborate(Box for iOS)

    Box for iPhone/iPad and Box for EMM don't offer suggested recipients when you invite collaborators to a file.

    When inviting a collaboration to a folder, a list of possible recipients is displayed. Please do the same in the mentioned app.

  5. View versions of documents on ipad ios device

    Currently there is no option to view previous versions and audit history on a mobile device, would be good for those that work entirely off an ipad and not a pc to be able to do this.

  6. Reduce file sizes with BOX capture

    Please fix the BOX Capture app to reduce file sizes. It is impossible to work from home given how large of files are (they timeout during upload, they are impossible to transfer to DocuSign given the file size, etc.). Even when I change file size to "Small" under settings, the files are huge. I do not have this issue with other scanning apps, however, we have to use BOX Capture for work.

  7. Upload more than photos in Box Mobile for iPhone

    We need an option to upload directly from Files app/Microsoft products via the Box Mobile App. Currently you can only upload boxnotes and photos directly from the Box Mobile app and to upload anything else you must go to a particular app and upload it from there.

    On Android you can do this, why not iPhone?

  8. New PowerPoint, Excel, Word from mobile

    When on the app, it would be helpful to have the option to create a new PowerPoint, Excel, Word doc. It is a bit confusing to tell the user they have to open the Word app first and save it to the Box mobile app when you don't need to do that from the web experience.

  9. Enable Password protect shared links in the mobile app

    Currently this option is not available in the mobile app. If a open shared link is shared, users on a mobile app do not have the ability to add a password to it.
