  1. box for office use several accounts

    I have 2 Box accounts and one instance of Outlook. It'd be very convenient to be able to download / upload using several accounts from Box for office (save attachments in Outlook, attach links, etc.).
    As an example, I have this ability with Adobe Acrobat in which my 2 accounts are linked.

  2. Make Shared Excel files only editable in Excel online, not downloadable.

    Create an access level for Word and Excel files that allows the user to edit them online, but not download them to /upload a new version of them from their computer. Basically, online edit only.

  4. Notification if content is screenshot

    We have secure content that we send to vendors as "non downloadable" but we also need to know if they take screenshots of that content. We would like functionality that notifies us if a user takes a screenshot of our content.

  6. Increase size of file allowed to be opened online

    We have several large Excel files (example: one that is 16.6 MB) that don't allow for editing/collaboration using Box online. In order to edit it, our team has to take turns: open it in MS Excel and each of us work on the doc one a time. Please allow for larger files to be opened on Excel online since collaboration is one of the hallmarks of using Box for file storage!

  7. Display more tags in new UI

    I want to see the detail of all my tags. The new user interface shows the detail of the first tag and then "2 others", etc. I job share and we each want to see each tag, especially if we widen that column to do so

  8. Box for Office templates

    We have company letterhead templates we are meant to use for all internal and external files. I would love the ability to open up a new/blank Document or Spreadsheet with those attributes already assigned (header/footer/formatting for headers, bullets, etc.).
    This would also "force" users to use the letterhead for uniform documentation.
    Thanks for your consideration!

  9. Box for Office - Access to Collections

    Now that we can organise our files in Box using Collections, it would be good to be able to access this functionality in the Office Apps. This is 'mainly' relevant to the Outlook Box add-in that comes as part of Box for Office for when you want to save to Box or insert from Box.
    Excel/Word/PowerPoint - I would argue that the best experience is opening from Edge/Chrome using Box Edit.

  11. My Collections on Box for Outlook App

    I’ve started to use the “Attach from Box” Outlook Addin O365 button, for attaching my documents in email. I’d like to suggest if you are able to see your collections list, to browse from.
    I have so much ‘clutter’ at my All files level and thought, it would be great to see some sort of favourites/collection option.

  13. Obtaining hyperlink address after installing Box for Office

    In order to download an excel file saved through Box, you need to click the link, sign on with username and pw and in my company also a push message to your cell phone. After installation of Box for Office after you open the file once there is a shortcut saved under Recent Files. If you click the hyperlink created under Recent Files, you can download the file without the credentials. I would like to open the file through the hyperlink, copy and paste what I need and close the file through VBA but I cannot figure out how to…

  14. MS One Note integration needed

    I use MS One Note very often and would like the ability to share with Box however there are many issues and end up saving the One Note file on a shared drive which does not have the same features as Box...I am trying to move away from utilizing shared drives and using Box primarily, however issues like One Note imcompatibility are preventing me from moving away from shared drives.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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/

  18. 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?

  20. 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.
