    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. use @mention in the Office suites of software (Words, Excel, PowerPoint)

    Currently, we are able to do commenting of the document in Box by using the @mention. But we are not able to do the same when we are editing document in the native Ms Office software eg Words, Excel & PowerPoint. The @mention does not work.

    Would like to have the same feature when we are working in the native document?

  3. In Excel Preview - Ability to Sum up a total of a column

    Since we can already click on and highlight cells in an Excel file in Preview mode on Box, I would love the functionality of being able to highlight and get a Total (Sum) of cells that is displayed in Preview mode without having to Open or Download the file.

  4. Changing Microsoft label (Sensitivity) in Office after enabling Co-Authoring

    After we enabled Co-Authoring, we are not able to change the Microsoft label (Sensitivity) when we open the document e.g. in Word because it is greyed out in Office and Box takes it from the Office file. It would be great if the possibility of changing the Microsoft label (Sensitivity) was enabled.

  5. 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.

  7. 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!

  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. 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).

  10. 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…

  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.

  12. Fix Version History for Co-Authored Files

    Now that co-authoring is available on Office files (which is a great feature!) version history is paying the price. On files that are edited often, the version history is growing out of control which leads to two primary issues:

    1 - Since only the last 100 versions of a file are available, the significant increase in versions caused by co-authoring means you may only have a few days worth of version history instead of months or years of history. Consider more version history and/or the ability to specify on a file how often an "accessible" version is saved for viewing…

  13. 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.

  14. 16:9 default slide size for PowerPoint creation from a folder

    When we create a PowerPoint from +New button, the plane slides will be shown with Standard, 4:3.
    According to the current standard, could you change the default size from 4:3 to 16:9? Or Could we have the setting that we can change the default size by ourselves?

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. I would like to see a lock feature implemented so that tenants with the "Box for Microsoft Office" feature enabled can occupy and edit files

    Tenants with the "Box for Microsoft Office" feature enabled will not be able to update locked files.
    As an alternative, the following procedure may be applicable, but has the following disadvantages

    ■procedure
     ①Lock the target file
     ②Download the file and update it locally
     ③Upload updated files
     ④Unlock

    ■demerit
     Many steps and cumbersome
     If another user downloads > edits > uploads a file that is locked, the file will be updated.

    Therefore, I would like to see a lock function implemented so that files can be occupied and edited like Box tools.

  20. Ability to specify display sheet in URL

    <How to specify the Excel display sheet by URL>
    If you add "#p = number of pages" to the end of the URL, you can display the specified page in PowerPoint or Word.
    In Excel, there was no way to specify the URL of the sheet to be displayed when accessing.
    We need the ability to specify an Excel sheet in a URL.
    We hope this function will be realized.

    <Excelの表示シートをURLで指定する方法>
    URLの後ろに「#p=ページ数」を付与すると、PowerPointやWordでは指定のページを表示することができます。
    Excelではアクセス時に表示するシートをURL指定する方法がありませんでした。
    URLでExcelのシートを指定する機能を必要としています。
    この機能の実現を望みます。
