    Thanks for your great suggestion! We know this capability would be hugely valuable. This is not something we’re currently working on, but we’re always considering feedback from customers like you in how we work with Microsoft to enhance secure productivity and collaboration.

  2. 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.

  3. 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).

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. 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

  13. Ensure language change in Box.com also displays in applications, especially in dialog boxes, warnings and in the Box group on the Ribbon.

    When I change the display language in Box.com to French, for example, the dialog boxes for Box in the apps (e.g., Word, Outlook etc.) are still in English. Any info or error messages in English, not in French. A good example is the attachment message that pops up asking if you want to save the attachment to Box and attach the file. Also the Box group in the ribbon is still in English, and the tool tips there are also in English.

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
