  1. Enhance Excel Previews

    When you have downloads rights (Editor) and preview an Excel file with the iOS Box app, it will use iOS's native excel viewer. The native Excel viewer does not correctly display the excel file. (graphs, overlays, comments etc.)
    When you do not have download rights (previewer) the iOS app will display a PDF converted version of the excel, which handles previews better than the native viewer.

    We will re-evaluate this request based on additional customer demand.

    We are unlikely to have this feature on our roadmap for a long time. Even if we were to build this feature, users could use other devices to capture confidential information. Instead, we recommend using security tools like watermarking to protect confidential information.

  5. DICOM annotations in platform

    Are there any API endpoints available with which we can retrieve the annotations (preferably in JSON format) when passed a .dcm file ID?

  6. Update Error Message When a User Accesses a Box URL for Content They're Not a Collaborator On

    When the recipient clicks on this link (the raw URL not Shared Link) and they're not a collaborator in the same folder, they receive a vague error that doesn't let them know what they did wrong that states "You cannot perform this action"

  8. Group collaborations: include information in Enterprise Events about the folder that was added/removed

    When a group is given access to a folder (or folder access is removed from a group), Enterprise Events for GROUPADDITEM / GROUPREMOVEITEM should include information about the item that was added or removed, as well as the collaborator level.

    This suggestion is not under consideration for the current or future roadmap. We are currently focusing on improving the experience to manage users in the Users & Groups tab.

  10. Modify Drop Down when Selecting Collaboration Role

    Ability to change drop down order to role with "least" rights coming first when adding user to sharing (i.e. default to less rather than most).

  13. Allow third party mobile apps to "Use EMM" for login instead of direct Box API

    Instead of having users log into Box from other third party apps, have them use the auth from Box EMM. This allows Box to whitelist EMM for logins. Box should know for all integrations that the login from the 3rd party app is from a trusted device (since EMM is on it)

    We’ve explored this idea, but it does not appear technically feasible at this time. We are happy to revisit with additional demand.

  14. Better rendering of Excel files in EMM

    Word and PowerPoint are basically rendered as PDFs or PostScript files (rather than using iOS built-in quick rendering engine, which does not display formatting and charts well).

    Excel files are still rendered using the iOS engine, which often leaves out crucial charts and doesn't reproduce frozen panes, which are needed to show large Excel files in a more manageable format.

  15. Add more granular options concerning EMM

    We would like some users to access Box on devices not necessarily controlled by MAAS360

    Thank you for your suggestion! We will review this again with additional consumer demand.

  16. Separate current mobile admin console features to iOS and Android-specific

    The current mobile settings in Admin Console apply for both iOS and Android. For organizations with complex requirements and technical solutions, it does not always make sense to have the same settings on both OS. It would be helpful to have the set of options for iOS and the set of options for Android.

    We don’t plan on adding any new MDM providers. However, if you can deploy a managed app config it will work. Let us know if you have any pending questions.

  18. Provide 1 month notice before releasing new functionality

    This is not only for Box for EMM but also other apps like Box for iOS/Android /etc.

    We currently plan on monthly releases. EMM tends to release 2 weeks after the standard app, assuming there are no major issues discovered.
