    Thank you for the suggestion. We will re-evaluate this request based on additional customer demand.

  3. Enhance Word Previews

    MS viewer in Box in iOS - specifically the Word viewer. It used to only show the top navigation bar when you long pressed the screen even on the first and last page.

    Now the nav bars do not go away on those 2 pages. For docs with very narrow margins at top and bottom and they are only 1 or 2 pages long.

  4. Enable users/developers to set Content-Type header on file download

    A user requests you treat .PKPass files with a different Content-Type header on download so the iPhone can handle it properly and add it to the user's Passbook.

    However, other users would like to be able to influence/set the Content-Type header when initiating a download.

    It would be helpful for folks who are trying to have greater control over the user experience, particularly when there is no baked in support for every file type.

  5. View Access Stats For Contents and Folders from Mobile App

    We would like to be able to see Access Stats with in the Box for iOS or the Android application. While this is possible from the web client the iOS app currently does not allow to view access stats.

  6. Enhance Excel Previews

    When you have downloads rights (Editor) and preview an Excel file with the iOS Box app, it will use iOS's native excel viewer. The native Excel viewer does not correctly display the excel file. (graphs, overlays, comments etc.)
    When you do not have download rights (previewer) the iOS app will display a PDF converted version of the excel, which handles previews better than the native viewer.

    We are unlikely to have this feature on our roadmap for a long time. Even if we were to build this feature, users could use other devices to capture confidential information. Instead, we recommend using security tools like watermarking to protect confidential information.

  10. Allow third party mobile apps to "Use EMM" for login instead of direct Box API

    Instead of having users log into Box from other third party apps, have them use the auth from Box EMM. This allows Box to whitelist EMM for logins. Box should know for all integrations that the login from the 3rd party app is from a trusted device (since EMM is on it)

    We’ve explored this idea, but it does not appear technically feasible at this time. We are happy to revisit with additional demand.

  11. Better rendering of Excel files in EMM

    Word and PowerPoint are basically rendered as PDFs or PostScript files (rather than using iOS built-in quick rendering engine, which does not display formatting and charts well).

    Excel files are still rendered using the iOS engine, which often leaves out crucial charts and doesn't reproduce frozen panes, which are needed to show large Excel files in a more manageable format.

  12. Add more granular options concerning EMM

    We would like some users to access Box on devices not necessarily controlled by MAAS360

    Thank you for your suggestion! We will review this again with additional consumer demand.

  13. Separate current mobile admin console features to iOS and Android-specific

    The current mobile settings in Admin Console apply for both iOS and Android. For organizations with complex requirements and technical solutions, it does not always make sense to have the same settings on both OS. It would be helpful to have the set of options for iOS and the set of options for Android.

    We don’t plan on adding any new MDM providers. However, if you can deploy a managed app config it will work. Let us know if you have any pending questions.

  15. Provide 1 month notice before releasing new functionality

    This is not only for Box for EMM but also other apps like Box for iOS/Android /etc.

    We currently plan on monthly releases. EMM tends to release 2 weeks after the standard app, assuming there are no major issues discovered.

  20. Need to be able to capture as bi-tonal in the "Scan" setting

    This will improve the quality of the image captured and reduce the file size of the upload.
