  1. Overwrite when uploading a file with the same name in Box for iOS

    If a file with the same name as a file stored in the Box is uploaded, the Web browser will overwrite the file and update the file version.
    However, on iPhones and iPads, when a file with the same name is attempted to be uploaded to Box for iOS, a "name conflict" error occurs and it cannot be overwritten.

    Currently, 4,000 employees on site are provided with iPads to manage drawings and report forms in Box.
    It is possible to add notes on the Box preview screen. However, since the added notes are lost when printed or downloaded, we would…

  2. Request to improve behavior where updaters are visible only when operating from mobile

    Hi Box Teams,

    I would like to improve the following behavior.

    Problem behavior:
    If non-collaborators access the People with the link from Box's web app, they won't see who updated the file, but if they access it from Box's mobile app, they'll see who updated the file.

    This problem occurs when a folder's co-owner or owner updates a file. If the user has the permission of the editor or lower, the user who updated the file is displayed as "Anonymous".

    Expected Behavior:
    Since we have set the folder so that only the owner or co-owner can see the information, we…

  3. Box Mobile/Conditional Access Policies

    The Box Mobile apps don't adhere to the Azure Conditional Access policies. This is a major security issue for companies that control company-managed devices. If we allow it without Conditional Access Policies, then anyone with a non-company managed device will have access and this is a major security issue. Please address this as soon as possible. It would be sincerely appreciated.

  4. Bring excel online previewer to mobile

    Bring the features of Excel Online Previewer to the mobile app. Currently formatting is stripped and long text boxes are cutoff when previewing an excel document on mobile. It would be ideal to have the formatting remain the same and be viewable within preview, OR as a backup to be able to drag to resize directly from within preview - like you can on desktop.

  5. Long audio data upload from Box Mobile fails

    When you "record audio" and tap "save recording" in the Box Mobile application, "Saving" is displayed, but the file is not saved on box.
    It occurs when the capacity is large (recording time is long), and when it occurs, the recorded data disappears without being saved anywhere, which is a problem.
    I'm hoping for an improvement that will allow stable uploading of long recording data.
    If the upload fails, I would like the data to remain on the terminal or be able to retry.

    <Box Mobileからの長時間の音声データのアップロードに失敗する>
    Box Mobile アプリケーションで「音声を録音」し、「録音を保存」をタップすると、「保存しています」と表示されるが、box上にファイルが保存されない現象が発生します。
    容量が大きい(録音時間が長い)場合に発生し、発生した場合に録音データがどこにも保存されずに消えてしまうことが問題となっています。
    長時間の録音データでも安定したアップロードができるような改善を期待しています。
    アップロードに失敗した場合は端末にデータが残るか、リトライできるようにしてほしいです。

  6. Box Mobile - need to "Add Comment" to a photo at time of capture

    Need ability to apply a comment or description to a photo when it is taken if "Review photo after capture" setting is on. This was part of Box Capture functionality. With Box Mobile, currently have to take the photo and then navigate to Capture History, then locate photo, open it, select comment, and begin typing - that's a lot of taps :)

    Quick access to the File Information - Description would be preferred over Comments because you are able to hover over the "i" tool tip and read whatever text was entered against the image file without having to preview…

  7. Ability to authenticate the Box for EMM app from Safari to Microsoft Edge

    When logging in with the mobile app "Box for EMM", if SSO is linked with AzureAD, the built-in Safari will start and the sign-in screen will be displayed.
    I would like to see you implement the ability to switch this to Microsoft Edge using an App Configuration Policy in Intune.

    The Slack for EMM app has this function, so I will share the URL for your reference.
    https://slack.com/intl/ja-jp/help/articles/115002579426-OrG-

    The reason is that our company manages iPhone / iPad using AzureAD × Intune.
    We use AzureA conditional access when accessing each SaaS, and we set "Requires an approved client app" for…

    The ability to split screen on iPad to simultaneously work on different documents in Box. This would enable the ability to compare files side by side the same way you would with 2 screens on PC.

  9. Support for previewing multiple files of a task by Relay manual start from the mobile app

    When multiple files are selected and assigned tasks in Relay's Manual Start, the browser can preview multiple files in my task, but the mobile app cannot (on iOS, only one file can be previewed; on Android, an error occurs and it cannot be previewed).

  10. Added a function to delete all at once in the capture history.

    If it can clear local storage without logout, Box capture will be easier to use.

    Captureモード(継続キャプチャ)にて撮影した写真は
    ローカルストレージの容量を消費します。
    ※ストレージ上限を超えてCaptureモードを利用することはできない。

    キャプチャ履歴内のすべてのコンテンツを一工程で全選択し、
    削除できるようになれば、Captureモードの利便性が向上します。

  11. Continuous Capture with Box for EMM

    Please improve Capture Mode of EMM.
    Comparing Capture Mode of Box for EMM with Capture for EMM,
    the probability the photo data becomes holding status is seriously high.
    When it happens, saving data is so tough that the users have to avoid continuous shooting.
    We did not have this experience when with Capture fo EMM.

  12. Specification for uploading Outlook attachments to Box in the Box app (Box: The Content Cloud: 5.13.0)

    When saving Outlook email attachments via the Box app (Box: The Content Cloud: 5.13.0) on a smartphone, I would like to be able to register a folder other than "All files" on the destination selection screen.

    It is time-consuming to select a folder by going down the hierarchy from the root (all files) each time when selecting a destination, Please make it possible to add any folder to the destination selection screen, such as favorites.

    スマホにおいて、Outlookメールの添付ファイルをBoxアプリ(Box: The Content Cloud:5.13.0)経由で保存する際、保存先の選択画面にて「すべてのファイル」以外を登録できるようにしてほしい。

    保存先を選択する際に毎回ルート(すべてのファイル)から階層を辿ってフォルダを選択することは手間であるため、お気に入りなどのように任意のフォルダを保存先選択画面へ追加できるようにしてほしい。

  14. I want to enable or disable offline use by folder or user in Box for iOS and Android.

    I would like to be able to enable or disable offline use for Box for iOS and Android on a per-folder or per-user basis.
    I want to be able to disable specific folders or enable or disable offline use on a per-user basis, because the large number of downloads that occur due to offline use can cause congestion in the network.

  16. Ability to Stream to TV via Airplay, etc.

    Option to be able to live stream to a TV. I have many of my photos/videos saved on Box so I don't have to store them on my phone, but I can't stream them to a TV and the ability to do that would be nice.

  17. box mobile location

    Photo location is only captured through continuous capture. If you go to a folder and click on the "+" sign to "Take a Photo or Video" this will not capture the location of the photo in the properties. Request to update the upload function from browsing the folder first to capture photo location in addition to continuous capture.

  18. Request for improvement of mobile app features

    I would like to request improvements to the following features of the mobile app:

    1.Regarding the ‘biometric authentication’ when the security option ‘Require passcode’ is enabled, biometric authentication cannot be used on Android tablets equipped with facial recognition. I would like it to be modified so that it can be used.

    2.Regarding the selection of passcode timeout time, there is an ‘immediate’ option on iOS, but not on Android. I would like it to be modified so that ‘immediate’ can be selected on Android as well.

    Should be interesting to have some area to send feedback in the mobile app and web app or maybe some link to redirect to this page. It was difficult for me, for me, to discover this page to send a simple feedback. It will turn easy for the users to send ideas and some issues

  20. 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”
