    We will revisit this if there is additional demand. For now, it is not planned.

  5. Able to change reading mode (single/ double page) when previewing PDF doc

    With the new tablet from version 4.7x. Previewing PDF file on landscape mode will force a double page rendering.

    The double page mode works fine when the pdf is created in portrait layout. but with document in landscape (e.g.: pptx) it reduces readability as page is scaled to fit.

    This doesn’t sound like a big issue for Chromebooks. We will re-evaluate based on additional suggestions.

  6. Disable the automatic creation of the My Photos folder when installing Mobile App.

    Disable the automatic upload of camera images and the subsequent creation of a folder to store the uploads.

    Thanks for your note! This does not happen unless you turn on the setting.

  7. Grey out "Require passcode" option when Enterprise requires a passcode.

    It may make for a better UX if, when the Enterprise requires a passcode for the mobile app, the option was greyed out and unable to be toggled.

    As it stands, when you turn it off, it prompts you to create a passcode and then turns back on.

    Thank you for the feedback! This change is a low priority when compared to some of our other asks.

  8. Prevent personal email clients from being opened in Box for EMM via 'Email Link' option

    The 'Email Link' functionality in Box for EMM, used when emailing a shared link, directly prompts the user for email clients recognized on the device (e.g. default email client and Gmail). We would like to be able to restrict Box for EMM from presenting the option of the personal email client.

    Or, as a fallback, restrict the 'Email Link' option entirely, as it serves as a security loophole for our team.

    There is no method for the Box mobile app to distinguish between a personal and business email address.

    Even if we were able to remove the email functionality, which many customers use, end users would still be able to copy the shared link and paste it within their desired email client.

    The shared link itself should be where proper security is enforced. These restrictions can be managed through the Admin Console.

    There is currently a select all button in the lower left of the screen.

  10. Prompt to accept TOS for external users

    Scenario:

    An enterprise requires custom TOS to be accepted. If those TOS change, external users no longer see the folders they had access to from that company. They do not receive a message that explains why.
    It would be helpful if they were directed to log in via computer and accept Terms of Service.

    There are no APIs available for the mobile apps to perform TOS functionality.

  12. Force the Box iOS / Box Android / Box EMM applications to re-authenticate more often than every 60 days.

    Ideally, we would like for the timeframe to be user definable.

    This is an important security requirement for us as we move into supporting non-GFE devices, so please do let us know if you need additional information.

    The mobile app is built on top of our APIs and therefore adheres to the standard token durations. Applications that are managed through an EMM provider already provide an advanced level of security that reduces overall risk.

    As a workaround, through your EMM provider, you could revoke the Box application and force users to reinstall on whatever basis you deem appropriate.

    Some providers may also allow you to revoke the managed app config which will force Box for EMM to log the user out.

    At some point, however, you would have to push the managed app config back down to the device.

  13. Preview in icon rather than the normal file type icon display

    We uses several files, often with long naming conventions, within folders. We generally access these files through iPads while working remotely.

    Preview often does not load for all of our files so we would like to have the file type icon that normally is next to the file name be a small preview of the file. This would allow our agents to quickly see a glimpse of the file before having to load the preview for all of the files.

    The loading time for the file and folder tree would cause massive performance issues if they were thumbnail views. That being said, we may explore alternative methods to resolving the long file name issue.

  15. Ability to set a custom attribute in the Box Capture application

    We would like the ability to set an attribute in the Box Capture application to automatically name photos with a desired store name.

    For example, rather than automatically name the photo 2016-05-23_001.jpg, we would like to have the option to set the default name via an attribute or prefix that would enable them to more easily identify, search on, and organize them.

    As an example they would like the option in the Box Capture application to be able to Set Photo Name Prefix to "Boise" so that the resulting photos would be saved to Box as: Boise2016-05-23001.jpg; Boise…

    Thanks for the feedback. We’ll be exploring a better way of providing value in the naming convention of repeated saving actions within a session.

  16. Enhance document capturing capabilities with our mobile app

    Add OCR, cropping, image stabilizer etc.

    If you are logged out of the Box app, you will have to re-save all your content for offline.

  19. EMM Multi-Window Support for iPad

    I need to be able to open multiple documents and easily switch between them with tabs (like iOS Safari perhaps) and I often need to display two documents side by side or have two views of the same document.

    During our investigation we determined that this flow was not a highly desired capability for how users currently want to work in Box. It would also require a shift in how our application was build.
