SharePoint Online - Direct/Native Integration
Currently, the only way to 'integrate' Box with SharePoint in a standard way is to manually use an HTML web part in SharePoint to add a Box Embed widget to a SharePoint page.
This request is for an enhanced (and truly 'native') integration between SharePoint and Box such that:
- NATIVE WEB PART/UI: A user can easily 'add Box' to a SharePoint site/page
- AUTO-FOLDER CREATION: A Box folder tree can automatically be associated with a SharePoint site/page (instead of a Document Library in SharePoint), similar to the Salesforce integration
- PERMISSIONS: Automatic permission mapping such that the auto-created Box folder hierarchy 'inherits' the permissions that are already assigned to the SharePoint site: meaning if I have 'edit' access to the SharePoint page/site, I'll automatically get 'editor' access to the associated Box folder(s) - again, similar to the Salesforce integration
- SEARCH: Include the associated Box content from 2/3 above into the native SharePoint search index (similar to the Slack integration with Search)
