  1. When selecting a folder to move/copy items to in the Box for EMM/Box app, please make it possible to select from collections as well.

    When moving/copying data in Box using iPhone, we need to point to a specific folder from the top hierarchy, which is time-consuming.
    When selecting a folder to move/copy these data to, please make it so that the selection can start from the hierarchy where the data is.
    Also, when selecting a folder to move/copy to, please make it possible to select from collections as well.
    (We use the Box for EMM/Box application).

    iPhoneからBox内にあるデータを移動/コピーする場合において、トップの階層から指定のフォルダを指示する必要があり手間がかかります。
    これらのデータの移動/コピー先を選択する際は、データのある階層から選択がスタートできるように設定して欲しい。
    また、移動/コピー先のフォルダを選択する際に、コレクションからも選択できるようにしてください。

    Collections are a link to a file, rather than the location where the file is saved. In order to accomplish the above ask, please select the file in question and “add” it to the desired collection.

  2. Document Scanning - Name document prior to upload

    Currently not able to name a document or file prior to upload using document scanning & only renaming after it has been uploaded. Development requested to be able to name the file upon scan.

  6. Support SSO with certificate authentication in ios app

    Authenticate using the In-App Browser when performing single sign-on using the Box for iOS App. Authentication using an X.509 Certificate is not available. In-App Browser does not accept certificate authentication requests.

    Other iOS apps (Gmail, Slack, etc.) support certificate authentication, so I would like Box for iOS to support it as well.

  7. Showing PDF annotations on mobile applications

    We would like the ability to show PDF annotations on both iOS and android, from different PDF applications. This would include Adobe PDF and Nuance PDF to name a couple.

    Currently, when a PDF annotation is added from Adobe or another PDF software application, it is not possible to view that PDF annotation from the Box mobile application. You would have to download the PDF to the device locally to view any annotations.

  8. PDF Bookmarks

    Please add back the ability to use built in PDF Bookmarks to the Box IOS App. This ability was present up until about 2 months ago now when apparently a library used to render PDF's was upgraded causing this ability to be lost.

    This has been an important feature for us as our users access large 50+ page PDF documents on a regular basis. During a meeting when directed to access a specific page within the document and bookmarks still worked, a user could simply select the bookmark which would send them to the exact page needed. Now users must…

  9. PDF bookmark support for Android devices

    We would like to see full implementation of PDF bookmark support for Android devices, similar to what the current iOS application offers. At present, there is an icon & text that indicates bookmarks should be accessible for PDFs, but in actuality the feature non-functional and not supported yet.

  10. I would like to have access to the recycle bin using the mobile app for iOS devices

    Right now only the web page permits to access the recycle bin to delete permanently files and folders.
    It would be a great to develop an upgrade to have this option available also for the mobile device app.

  11. box app should open other apps in their own instance

    It's very annoying when using box mobile (android) that when I want to send a file it opens the other apps inside the box instance and not in their own processes. For example a photo gets opened in f-stop which then shares to social media app but then all have to back out to get back to the box folder I started in and I can't keep any of those apps open where they were which in this case prevents adding a second photo to the same posts. I don't see this same trapped behavior in other apps.

  12. Option to disable preview of PDFs on phone

    When I open PDF on iPhone it displays correctly but box preview seems to be ignoring multiply/darken layers and just display them without this. This causes white boxes and images being cut one from another.
    Option to disable preview would be nice. This is the folder https://app.box.com/s/qj947h7q0jri0r1hp3lm9dlo9zzjtu2z - first file displays badly on iPhone preview of the link

  14. Lost feature in iOS

    I used to be able to select a photo, click the arrow bottom left, and choose upload to box. Its disappeared. Is that an app feature that was removed? I don't see a way to add it in options.

  15. I would like to be able to take wide lens photos in Box Capture for iOS.

    I work in the real estate business and used to take a lot of photos with Box Capture for iOS. But, apparently Box Capture only uses the standard lens of my iPhone 11 Pro. Is there a possibility that with an upgrade we will be able to use the wide lens and tele lens also?
    Thanks in advance for your response.

  17. Allow default to full screen view on iPad horizontal view (like portrait view)

    I like to view box in full screen and because I use landscape view often, I have to hit the double arrow every time I go to a page. In portrait view it automatically goes to full screen view. I'd like an option to automatically go to full screen in landscape.

  18. Mobile: The operation of accessing Box from an Office application and opening a file requires increased security.

    Access Box from an Office application and open the file.
    Current status,The contents can be copied and pasted regardless of the Enterprise setting.
    This will lead to the leakage of the content without the intention of the administrator.

    They need to control the copying and pasting of content when you access Box from an Office application and open a file.

  20. When we open a PDF with the Box app (Box for EMM) on iPad, the Activity column appears on the right side of the screen.

    When we open a PDF with the Box app (Box for EMM) on iPad, the Activity column appears on the right side of the screen.
    It takes a lot of work to maximize this PDF, as you have to make one click each time.
    We would like to prevent Activity from being displayed by default when previewing a PDF.

    If we use our iPad vertically, Activity will not be displayed, but it is assumed that we will use it horizontally.
