    We are not currently planning to implement this feature on mobile in the next 6-12 months. We will update this issue as we continue to explore the functionality.

  4. Watermark of PDF and Excel files

    We are not able to use watermark of PDF and Excel files on mobile devices such as iPhone and iPad. We would like to use this feature.

  5. File Type request: .log files (text)

    A lot of applications output their logs with the extension .log. These are just text files (.txt) with a .log extension. Unfortunately, files with .log extensions can't load in preview. Please allow .log files to load in preview (for desktop and mobile interfaces).

    Thanks for the suggestion of this addition. We are not currently planning to add this functionality, but will keep the post updated for future.

  6. Watermark files from mobile app

    Currently, marking a file to be watermarked is only supported on the Box webapp. This is a request to be able to watermark files from the mobile app.

  7. Playback Speed on Mobile for Videos

    I would like to play video contents with double speed in the mobile app's preview mode.
    Currently you can change the speed of the video on web but it is not possible on mobile.
    It would be great if you can add the playback speed (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) on mobile too.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Password protected links can be opened within the app, but cannot be created from the app. We will re-evaluate if there are an increase in this request.

  10. Support custom objects via the mobile Salesforce and Box integration.

    The Box and Salesforce integration for Salesforce mobile does not support custom objects at all so we had to create a deep link workaround that redirects to the associated folder within the box mobile experience (this also requires some salesforce coding to populate a field with the corresponding folderID). This is not a seamless experience....it is a clunky redirect.

    Also, you are not able to create the corresponding box folder for the first time from the mobile experience....you have to create the box folder from the desktop from within the box integration within salesforce first, before you are able to…

  13. Target users for EMM mobile clients

    Currently if an organisation wishes to enable the Enterprise Mobility Management version of the mobile clients they have to enable it at a global level.

    We would like to be granular with this. We're a University and I want to enforce all staff users to use the EMM client but not students (their uni data is not considered "sensitive").

    Please can Box allow granular assigned of EMM users?

    In our use case we have just under 3,600 user who require EMM but 17,000 users do not.

  14. Would like to have a setting where I could hide the activity pane for all documents when iPad is in landscape mode.

    I don't use the activity pane very often, but since I used my iPad docked in landscape mode with an external keyboard, the activity pane opens every time I open a document. Instead of having to minimize the activity pane each time I would prefer to have a setting where it is minimized by default and I open it only if needed.

  15. Ability to accept invitation request to “Join Enterprise” via Mobile app

    We would like a way to see and accept invitation request for “Join Enterprise,” not only in Web browsers but also in Mobile [Box for iOS/Android] too.

    At the moment, users are unable to confirm and click “Accept” for the invitation request, when they log-in via [Box for iOS/Android].
    When there are many users who uses iPads only, it would take so much time and effort for them to access to Box via Web browser everytime, only to accept the invitation.

  20. Box Capture enhancements

    Videos recorded using Box Capture on iPad have been randomly saving with incorrect orientation for some time now. Videos will be recorded with iPad in landscape mode, but files will come out in portrait mode. I have had to manually reorient many many videos over the past few months.

    Clearing the local storage only works temporarily to fix the video rotation issue, and it eventually creeps back in. It is also odd to me that clearing the local video storage would have any effect on this. Is there some other data that is in the local storage that is gumming…
