iWork Integration on iOS 4.3.9 EMM
  • In November, we'll release the iWork integration on the Box EMM app. This release enables you to preview and collaborate on Keynote, Pages, and Numbers files from within Box. Now you can co-author files in real-time, preview, create, and edit iWork documents in Box -- all while securely saving your changes back to Box. You can turn on this integration for your organization from the Admin Console: Settings > Apps. To enable collaborative editing, select "iWork Collaboration." To enable Box preview of iWork documents in browser, select "iWork Previews."  The iWork Integration Guide provides more information.
 
Box for iOS 4.3.9 Public and EMM
  • In the 4.3.9 release, we are updating the sharing interface and making it simpler for you to use. In the updated sharing interface, you'll conveniently see all the different sharing options you have. In addition, the updated sharing interface will be the same for all Sharing actions in the app. 
  • Box's new mobile device UI provides a unified and streamlined experience to make collaboration easy. To collaborate, you can either invite people to contribute to a shared file or folder, or send people a separate email containing a link to the shared file or folder.

In Box iOS 4.3.8 we have launched the following updates: 

  • Open a link to a Box file
  • The user is redirected to the Box iOS app and the file preview is shown
  • No additional changes to the UI state and location are made in the process of redirection
  • When the user closes the preview, the user sees the same content they were looking at before tapping the redirection linkScreen Shot 2018-10-30 at 3.11.25 PM.png

     

 

Folder redirection will continue to behave as before, taking the user to the appropriate location within the All Files tab.

 

Additionally, to keep the useful functionality of visiting the parent folder of the redirected file, we are introduction a new menu option to view the file's containing folder.

We are making an update to the way file redirection operates within the Box iOS app.

 

In Box iOS 4.3.7 and older:

  • Open a link to a Box file
  • The user is redirected to the Box iOS app and the file preview is shown
  • In the process of redirection, the user is taken to the All Files tab and the folder structure is set up with all of the parent folders leading all the way to the file from the link
  • When the user closes the preview, the user sees the containing folder of that file

 

We are making changes to this behavior in order to better maintain the user's previous state and location in the app.

 

In Box iOS 4.3.8: 

  • Open a link to a Box file
  • The user is redirected to the Box iOS app and the file preview is shown
  • No additional changes to the UI state and location are made in the process of redirection
  • When the user closes the preview, the user sees the same content they were looking at before tapping the redirection link

 

Folder redirection will continue to behave as before, taking the user to the appropriate location within the All Files tab.

Additionally, to keep the useful functionality of visiting the parent folder of the redirected file, we are introduction a new menu option to view the file's containing folder.

These updates will happen in our October release window for the Box iOS app. We will update the redirection experience on Android at a later time.

Last month, we discovered an unexpected behavior in the Move, Copy, and Share actions from the edit menu in the Files app that is allowing content from Managed Apps to be passed to Unmanaged Apps.

 

We have introduced the ability to limit this unexpected behavior in the Admin Console under the Mobile tab. By enabling this feature, we will automatically disable Files functionality for unprotected versions of iOS and automatically reenable the Files functionality when a protected version of iOS comes online. Enabling this feature means that some workflows might be affected because of turning off the Files functionality.

 

Workflow Example
Checkbox off
Checkbox on
Work-around
Being able to see Box Files on the iOS Files app
End-user is able to see managed files on iOS Files App
End-user is unable to see managed files on iOS Files App
None at this time
Attaching a Box File to an email through the iOS Mail email client 
User is able to attach a file through the iOS Sharesheet 
User is unable to attach a file through the iOS Sharesheet in Mail
  • Use a shared-link instead of attaching a file 
  • Invite the user to a file as a collaborator (permission determined by you)
Opening an iWork file from Box into an iWork iOS app (Presentation, etc.) User is able to open an iWork file in an iWork iOS App (Presentation, etc.) User is not able to open an iWork file in an iWork iOS App (Presentation, etc.) None at this time
