Integrate Box as an additional "drive" in Google Drive. This would allow people to easily share documents from within Google Drive using Box. All of my templates are in Drive, I do real-time collaboration in Google Drive, none of which is currently doable in Box.

I'm voting FOR this, but primarily because the "share" ability was apparently removed from google docs, if you create them within box, to be stored there. (I posted another article on this titled "Google Doc "share" from google.")
I can see what this user is asking for, and agree it would be useful. For us though, we actually DON'T want to manage two separate file storage systems. But the way the current google docs integration works, which removes the ability to "share" the doc from within the google doc itself, is not only cumbersome, but creates potential security vulnerabilites which are simply unnecessary.
In the use cases where we need to use google docs, I don't want to have to go THROUGH box or require box "collaboration" to be enabled, just for an outside user to access and edit the google doc. There's no reason to create this burden, or add the potential for the wrong document (or folder) to be invited for collaboration.
If you are integrating with google docs, DON'T BREAK it's core functionality.
Doing what this user wants would be one workaround which would fix their issue, and also allow us to keep google docs functional while also makeing those files available to view in box.
