  1. Folder transition improvement in Box for iOS, including EMM

    [Feature Request]
    Please improve the folder transition when selecting a file on iOS and opening it with Box for iOS (including EMM).

    • Please be able to show a shortcut to any folder at open-in
    • Please be able to specify the folder to be displayed at open-in

    [Request Background]
    The folder displayed in Open In is always the root folder of the user, and it is cumbersome and inefficient to reach the desired folder, which has an impact on business operations.

    I want to use the above method to improve efficiency.

  3. Inability to lock files in Box Mobile

    Box for Mobile app needs to allow users to lock files while editing otherwise it creates work to manually reconcile the differences from all the duplicates that are created. This renders working on common documents by many users ineffective.

    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.

  6. ipad app

    I would like the ability to open documents from the Box iPad app in new tabs. Chrome allows me to do a long hold and be given the option to open in a new tab. This would be a nice function in the iPad app.

  8. Ability to remove collections from mobile

    Ability to remove collection on mobile

    Mobile Application doesn't allow users to remove collection. Users need to remove it from Box WebApp at this moment. It would be better to remove it within the mobile application.

  9. select default name for auto uploads from mobile

    When images are uploaded from my phone to Box, they are named IMG_12345.JPG. I'd like to have the date in the file name (this is the setting for Sync.com uploads, and if I recall correctly last I used it, Dropbox.com).
    Ideally, users would be able to choose their desired naming structure but datetime would still be a big improvement over a sequential number.
    Thanks,
    Jase

  10. Ability to open password protected files from mobile devices

    Until a few weeks ago, password protected files could be opened through the mobile app from a mobile device. Now the attempt to open a password protected file results in an error of "Decryption failed. (null). Password protected files cannot be opened from mobile device from m.box.com or www.box.com either (error is different). Seems to defeat purpose of cloud based storage since so many users depend on a mobile device to open view files from Box storage.

  11. Box for iOS shows activity bar as default onscreen

    When using box, the activity and comment tab is always showing onscreen. I must hit the full screen tab each time I open a new document. This should be defaulted to full screen, and a selectable feature to show comments, not the other way around imo.

  12. Can't browse on mobile after setting a password for a shared link

    We can access a file by create a shared link for a file in Box Web App without "Password Protect" for "People with the link" and opening the URL in a web browser on a mobile device.

    Then, when the shared link is set to "Password Protect" from the Web App and then opened again on the mobile device, the message "This shared file or folder has been deleted" is displayed and the file cannot be accessed.
    The expected behavior is to display the password entry screen.

    The workaround for this issue is to clear the browser cache, and the…

  13. Box Capture File Name

    I want the file names of Box Capture pictures to be "date and time" instead of "date and sequential numbers", just like when shooting with the Box app.
    Example:
    Box Capture: "2021-01-11_001.jpg"
    Box (Take Photo or Video): "Image 2021-01-11 14.00.00.jpg"

    Currently, the file names conflict and the files become messed up order, especially when several people share a folder and take pictures.

    I would appreciate if you could improve it.
    Thanks.

  15. Count Box for EMM login as login in User Report

    Count Box for EMM login as login in User Report
    Box for EMM login is not counted as "Login" in User Statistics report since Box for EMM keep login information. It should be counted every time users login on Box for EMM.

  16. From Mobile apps, be able to stop autoread to next files

    It is when we put several mp3 files into a box folder or share multiple files with others. Then, when accessed these through the box app on a phone .... If we play one, the phone doesn't stop at the end, but goes on to play the next mp3 in the folder or the list of files shared.

    Having just that one feature is indesirable. It generates less traffic to the apps and less exposure to Box other services ... I suppose the assumption was possibly for listening to music. But when we share podcasts or voice recordings, the current…

  17. Updates are no longer unlimited... WHY?

    Updates are essential... Box won't allow viewing of updates on the Mobile app anymore, and with the latest update, the Updates feature on desktop only goes back 24 hours... This is unacceptable.

  19. Box drains my iphone 7 battery, even though it shouldn't be open or running in the background

    Each morning I use a "Numbers" app file which is saved to Box on my iphone so that I can use it on my MacBook pro. The problem is whilst I haven't directly opened the Box app to do this save, it opens and continues to run in the background and drain the battery (60% in an hour is typical). Eventhough in the app settings "Background app refresh" is off as is "Notifications", I can only stop this drain if I turn the phone off and back on again. I am running ios 14.2 and I keep all apps up-to-date.…

  20. Apptec

    We use an EMM called Apptec360 to manage our mobile devices. It would be nice if this can be supported by Box for EMM.
