  1. File request option for mobile App

    Mobile App does not allow selecting "File Request" giving individuals browser upload capabilities without needing to get a box account. Why is that function missing in the App but available on the Desktop browser version?

    This is currently unplanned as we’re expanding the functionality of file request making it harder to create/manage them from Mobile. However the submission experience is fully mobile optimized. Thank you!

  2. Box Capture enhancements

    Videos recorded using Box Capture on iPad have been randomly saving with incorrect orientation for some time now. Videos will be recorded with iPad in landscape mode, but files will come out in portrait mode. I have had to manually reorient many many videos over the past few months.

    Clearing the local storage only works temporarily to fix the video rotation issue, and it eventually creeps back in. It is also odd to me that clearing the local video storage would have any effect on this. Is there some other data that is in the local storage that is gumming…

  4. iOS Files app "waiting to upload" problem/getting stuck

    Awhile back I could not get the iOS Files to work with Box documents. They would get stuck in the "waiting to upload." While they were helpful, I spent several emails with Box assistants and we couldn't find a solution and gave up. It seems obvious, but I finally figured out what happened. The Microsoft Office applications in iOS require an Office 365 account to edit documents. My Office 365 is through my work, and I am in education, so of course we get a terrible email at first and immediately start using the email alias. When Office required the…

  6. Make Shared Folder Sorting Consistent Across Devices

    Viewing a shared link on a mobile device ignores the sort preference that is established internally and only shows folders/files alphabetically.

    I cannot think of a single example of how it would be beneficial to specifically alter the established folder/file sorting method to default to "Alphabetical" merely because the folder is being viewed on mobile.

    Sort method should not be "device" dependent. Instead, it should be consistent across all platforms—especially given the fact that the shared-link folder/file list sort method cannot be chosen at the shared-user end.

  7. Allow users the ability to make content (mostly video) available offline on the mobile app while also not allowing download permissions acro

    Allow users the ability to make content (mostly video) available offline on the mobile app while also not allowing download permissions across the browser, Drive, etc. Something similar to Netflix, which allows shows to be viewable offline on the app with no downloading on other devices.

    The reason for the use case is that executives will review confidential trailers on their phone/tablet. They need the ability to review the content even if the internet is spotty. But we need to restrict the ability to download a copy to prevent exfiltration of sensitive content.

  8. UI improvement for box mobile site

    Please remove the top page of mobile site if we access the site via browser instead of APP. It should directly go to the box web site.

    If above is impossible, since “Open in Box App” and “Download for free” are not needed for all customers who are using mobile site without accessing it from App
    so that “View on Box Mobile site” should be more emphasized and above two option should be removed or minimalized.

  11. Show list of collaborators on mobile devices

    When inviting a collaborator on a mobile device on a file, the list of users does not appear as it does when inviting collaborators on a folder.

    We would like to be able to see this same behavior on files on mobile since it works with folders on mobile and since it works for files on desktop.

  12. Edit PDF's natively in iOS app and Save as Flattened PDF

    We currently use onedrive only to edit PDF's via our ipad using the apple pencil. It would be great if we didn't have to do this in onedrive and could just use Box. Especially as Box is our cloud drive.

    One step better than onedrive's features would be that after editing the PDF with the apple pencil, then have the ability to save the pdf as a flattened PDF file. This is a great feature for signing documents and would improve workflow greatly.

  13. @mention dose not work well in Flick input

    @mention dose not work well in Japanese Mobile app(Box for iPhone and iPad),when I use "Flick input".

    When I use "PC keyboard input",that function work well.
    But,when I use Japanese "Flick input",that function does not work well.

    I strongly demand that improvement.

  16. Single page view option for Box for Android

    In Box for Android - make single page fit to screen an option for previewing PDFs.

    Currently there is either 2 page - which creates a lot of blank space on the top and bottom - or the thumbnail grid - which is good for navigating to a page but not helpful for review of a single page.

  18. Music Playlists (Audio, MP3)

    I'd like to see the ability to create multiple named playlists for the Box iOS mobile app. Currently I can only favorite songs which places them into one large playlist. I'd like to be able to create multiple playlists for different genres of music or for the activity I'm engaged in.

  19. Add Find in page ability in Mobile app

    We'd like to add ctrl+F ability when previewing files in the mobile app.

    The many use of box on my iPhone is to contain data in multiple locations so that I can look information up when I am not near my laptop. Many files are quite large and without a search feature, it is almost impossible to find the data. In the past, I have had to import the data downloaded by box into another app to search.

  20. Better detailed logging for iOS app that's available to customers for troubleshooting.

    Would like an advanced logging that can be initiated on the iOS Box for EMM app to help capture why uploads fail. It is surprising that there is no “verbose” logging available for the iOS app.
