  2. Shared Link options via Outlook.

    We want to be able to select Shared Link options via Outlook.

    For example, the default setting of [Shared Link] is “People in ***(company name)”.
    Other Shared Link options (Ex: People with the link) cannot be selected, when users “Attach from Box” via Outlook.

    It would be more convenient for users if they can change Shared Link options via Outlook (without opening Box Web App).

  3. Add sheet view feature for excel web

    the sheet view feature for excel web isn't supported on box and i was wondering whether there is a chance box could work with microsoft to add support for this feature, as that would be tremendously useful for us. here is a link describing the feature i'm referring to

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel-blog/sheet-view-is-generally-available/ba-p/1032576#

    thanks!

  4. Word docs reformatted and deleting text

    I've noticed that Word documents that I upload get reformatted and text gets cut off in the Box version. This has happened to me several times, and to my coworkers as well.

  5. Synchronize file order between Box for Office and Web App

    When we handle the files via Box for office, the file/folder order is not the same as the WebApp. The customer would like to order the files/folders as the same as in the files/folders order on WebApp.

  6. Powerpoint link not giving full URL in Box Powerpoint viewer.

    When viewing a Powerpoint (pptx) presentation in Box, the URL on hover and on click is shortened all the way down to the domain.
    Example:
    Verified in the downloaded version of the pptx, the URL text and hot link are both set as:
    https://abstracted.mybluemix.net/#/documents/b26c440b95ba6a02d6950bc8d3abc740

    However, the hover tooltip and URL launched is only:
    https://abstracted.mybluemix.net/

  7. Box for outlook should insert link at cursor location, not at the bottom of the email

    The new "Box for Outlook" attaches an image and link to the specified file at the bottom of the email (perhaps below the user's signature). Some people would prefer to 'just have the link' or to put the link inline with the flow of the email text. Could this be added as a feature /option for the app?

  10. Direct Link to Open File in Office Online

    Currently, you can create a shared link to an Office file that will cause it to open in Box. You must then click the option to open it in Office Online.

    It would be nice to have a link option that takes you directly to the page to edit the file in Office Online, while still having the file living in Box. Much like a direct download link, but instead, a direct edit link for the integration.

  11. Microsoft Sheet View

    I would like the sheet view that Microsoft recently released for excel online to be enabled. We share online files constantly and its extremely difficult to function when we cant filter without filtering for the entire group.

  13. Box for office integration COM add-in problem

    Box for Office causing “Outlook detected a COM add-in problem” . We know that there is a workaround by modifying the registry keys. However, modifying the registry keys a very hard change for the end user so that the customer is asking us to improve this as product.

  14. Display warning if you are opening a file in, for example, Word Desktop when someone else has it open in Word Online.

    I know that you can see that teeny icon in the upper right of the preview window when someone is editing the file in Word Online, for example. But it would be great if there were a warning that pops up to tell you that someone has it open in Online, and to warn you of the consequences of editing it in Desktop. Users get really freaked out when they get the conflict error after the fact, and a warning would at least explain the consequences.

  19. Integrate Box for Office with Box Edit

    Integrate use of Box Edit (Open files from Box.com, edit, and save back) with Box for Office (Create new files in Word, Excel, etc. and save to Box.com folders).

    For example - I frequently generate a series of documents that originate in Box.com, but I want to use the Box SAVE AS command to save them back to the same Box.com folder (or one adjacent to it in the file structure) with a new name. Current functionality when I activate the Box SAVE AS option from an Office application is to treat it like a newly generated file, requiring me…

  20. Updated MS Office Online Functions

    We have the ability to use forms with Excel Online via Office 365, but if we choose to retain those items in Box, we lose all form functionality. We'd like to see an updated version of Office Online available in Box to support these features.
