  1. Watermark of PDF and Excel files

    We are not able to use watermark of PDF and Excel files on mobile devices such as iPhone and iPad. We would like to use this feature.

    This gets quite annoying with time and I would love for it to be fixed :)

  3. Would like to have a setting where I could hide the activity pane for all documents when iPad is in landscape mode.

    I don't use the activity pane very often, but since I used my iPad docked in landscape mode with an external keyboard, the activity pane opens every time I open a document. Instead of having to minimize the activity pane each time I would prefer to have a setting where it is minimized by default and I open it only if needed.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. When I click on a photo in Browse mode to bring it full frame, by default a side panel comes up labeled "Activity." i

    I am running v.5.1.4 IOS for ipad. When I click on a photo in Browse mode to bring it full frame, by default a side panel comes up labeled "Activity." This is very annoying, as I constantly have to click on the photo to make it full frame and eliminate the side panel. My suggestion: this should be a user option, rather than a default that cannot be changed. Most users do not use this Activity feature; why is it the default setting? This is a change on this new version 5.1.4. Please fix this on the next version.

  8. iPhone default preview mode

    With the recent iOS app update, all PDF’s when previewed in Landscape mode display the “activity” screen on the right hand side by default. This is an unwanted feature and I would prefer defaults to show the "activity" screen collapsed.

  9. In App PDF reader changes make the app frustrating to use

    Recently the UI for the PDF reader changed. I use Box primarily to read review copies of comic books, which DC Comics only make available to view in the app. Until recently this worked fine on my iPad, displaying the full page as I flipped through. I even liked the page flip of the interface enough that I upload other review copies to read them in the app. About three weeks ago, something in the UI changed, and now it no longer displays the full page, and I have to scroll on each page to read the whole thing. In…

  10. Add Capture functionality on Box mobile app

    I regularly recommend Capture to users in our org as a solution to streamlining the collection of photos and videos Box. I’d say about 1/3 of our users have Android devices so they’re not able to take advantage of it, unfortunately.

    As an aside, I’d love to just see the Capture functionality consolidated into the main Box app so that that users don’t need to download a separate app in the first place.

  11. 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.

  12. Add notifications to Box for EMM

    In the Box Web browser, I can confirm that the new mention is on the left side menu "notifications" with red ● when new notifications appear. We'd like to have those notifications within Box for EMM too.

    Option to either automatically capture a scanned image when it's recognized (like Evernote or Evernote Scannable app) or on a timer (like the Dropbox app)

    This is on the roadmap to build document scanning into the main Box app, along with auto-scanning functionality.

    This functionality is being made available in Android through the addition of the Capture feature set in the main Box application.

  15. Push Notifications for @Mentions

    Box push notifications on iOS are very limited currently and only send the user a push notification when...

    1. There's a comment added to a file and they're the most recent uploader
    2. They've been added to a folder

    The most logical other push notification to add would be for @mentions which, in theory, would increase overall adoption of comments as well.
