Concurrent editing via Microsoft Office Desktop
Microsoft API’s dont allow co-authoring and MSFT doesn’t plan to support it for Box. Please provide feedback to MSFT reps to enable co-authoring for partners such as Box
allow concurrent editing for MS Office files via Box Drive on Macs.

I feel that it would be more professional for Box to take ownership of this issue rather than requesting that customers reach out to Microsoft to provide this feedback / feature request. It is a serious usability issue with the entire portfolio of Box desktop apps.
