  1. Reduce file sizes with BOX capture

    Please fix the BOX Capture app to reduce file sizes. It is impossible to work from home given how large of files are (they timeout during upload, they are impossible to transfer to DocuSign given the file size, etc.). Even when I change file size to "Small" under settings, the files are huge. I do not have this issue with other scanning apps, however, we have to use BOX Capture for work.

  2. Add an identifier that ADFS can find that app is Box for EMM in User-Agent.

    Could you please consider adding an identifier that ADFS can find that app is Box for EMM in User-Agent.

    We found Box for EMM does not include any identifier like "Box for EMM" in its User-Agent when doing authentication with MAM checked-in. We just only allow access that "Box for EMM" includes in User-Agent. Therefore, ADFS cannot determine whether an application is Box for EMM or not and the user is unable to access from Box for EMM.

  3. Ability to accept invitation request to “Join Enterprise” via Mobile app

    We would like a way to see and accept invitation request for “Join Enterprise,” not only in Web browsers but also in Mobile [Box for iOS/Android] too.

    At the moment, users are unable to confirm and click “Accept” for the invitation request, when they log-in via [Box for iOS/Android].
    When there are many users who uses iPads only, it would take so much time and effort for them to access to Box via Web browser everytime, only to accept the invitation.

  5. CAPTURE for a SurfacePro?

    App for BOX members to download that will work the same way CAPTURE does for iPhone and iPad but on a SurfacePro? I need my inspectors to be able to quickly snap photos, videos or document scans and then upload and securely share them with Box on a SurfacePro. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

  7. Lock files from remote devices (Smartphone and tablets).

    Today, the unability to lock a file from smartphone and tablet is a huge problem for using Box by fields teams, creating many conflicts on files.
    Indeed, our fields teams don't want to use Box because this functionality is not vailable.

  8. Unify nomenclature for permission levels between mobile and web clients

    We've noticed that the same feature is called differently in Desktop-browser, iOS app and Android app

    Specifically the link type 'Invited people only' is called 'People in this folder' in iOS (which I actually like better) and 'People in this file and folder' in Android

    Can you pass this feedback onto the product team? I don't think it makes sense to be inconsistent between the platforms

  10. View versions of documents on ipad ios device

    Currently there is no option to view previous versions and audit history on a mobile device, would be good for those that work entirely off an ipad and not a pc to be able to do this.

  12. Target users for EMM mobile clients

    Currently if an organisation wishes to enable the Enterprise Mobility Management version of the mobile clients they have to enable it at a global level.

    We would like to be granular with this. We're a University and I want to enforce all staff users to use the EMM client but not students (their uni data is not considered "sensitive").

    Please can Box allow granular assigned of EMM users?

    In our use case we have just under 3,600 user who require EMM but 17,000 users do not.

  14. Option to only have selected users have access to BOX mobile.

    We currently store extremely sensitive information within our BOX system and due to the sensitive information we have disabled the option for BOX to be on any other devices other than desktops, for all users. Is it possible to create an option that would override this option to allow only selected users to have mobile access?

  15. Search function included in the Copy or Move option for ipad

    User on ipad report not seeing the option to search for files on the move or copy options like they do in web app. Makes it difficult to move files to destination by going through the file tree list.

  16. Fix accessibility of iOS app please

    Please make the iOS app more accessible.

    Issue: When navigating folders, focus is on the wrong folder and there is no way to fix it. To replicate, turn on VoiceOver and drag your finger over the folders to navigate and hear them read aloud, stopping before you get to the bottom of the page. Then swipe to navigate through the folders. By the time you get to the bottom of the first page's list, the focus is lost and the only way to get it back is to kill the app and restart it. Frustrating when you have multiple pages…

    We’re beginning to make overall improvements to the accessibility of the iOS app within Q2 of this year. We will continue to make improvements in future, as well.

  17. Box for Outlook (OWA)

    Box for Outlook integration needs to support moving multiple emails to a box folder, currertly only one email can be filed at a time. Also you only have the option of saving the email message as an .eml which is frustrating as these file dont preview within Box Web. Are you able to have an option for .msg.
    Another great use would be able to move the email to Box rather than a save, which ultimately a copy.
    Also ability to show some box folders in Outlook and drag and drop to those folders would be a great feature.

  18. Separate set of granular controls for Box for Mobile and Box for EMM in Mobile Tab of Enterprise Settings

    Use case: Company uses MDM provider in tandem with MFA. Presently, the Mobile tab applies to all mobile applications. They need much stricter settings for MFA users than Mobile Iron users (e.g. only allow upload/view files)

  19. Password Forgot Link should not be on the initial Login Screen of the Mobile app.

    I believe the forgot password link on the initial Box Login Screen should be removed from the app. The scenario requires you to enter in your Username First (Email). At that point Box knows if the person is SSO or not. If the person is SSO it should bring them to their IDP. If it not it should provide a password dialog box and the option to reset the password.

    An option to reset the password should not be present before you enter in your username(Email).

  20. File Type request: .log files (text)

    A lot of applications output their logs with the extension .log. These are just text files (.txt) with a .log extension. Unfortunately, files with .log extensions can't load in preview. Please allow .log files to load in preview (for desktop and mobile interfaces).
