  1. Box for Teams Integration for Private Channels

    Today, Box for Teams Integration does not support Private Channels.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044673394-Box-for-Teams-FAQ

    Many customers are using Private Channels and need full integration between Box and Microsoft Teams. We do want Microsoft and Box to work together to improve it.

    This limitation is due to Microsoft’s platform not allowing integrations to surface as messaging extensions (Box icon to upload and share documents). Until Microsoft supports this for third parties, Box is unable to deliver this functionality. We are working with Microsoft but there is no timeline for delivery at this point.

  2. Box/MS Teams integration - prevent native file sharing

    Need to add an explanation to the webpage on integrating the Box app with MS Teams:

    Box file sharing is not practical in Teams if users are still able to attach files using the built-in Sharepoint capabilities of Teams. Box needs to explain how to turn off the native file sharing in Teams, thereby forcing users to use Box.

    Apparently, there is a way to turn off the ability for teams to create SP doc libraries.

  3. Alert users to communication failures between box and Office Online

    Three times in the last two months, we have lost hours of edits to box files made in PowerPoint Online. Box’s position is that this is a communication failure on the Microsoft side: box passed the file to Microsoft and Microsoft failed to pass the file back. The edits made are lost with no recovery possible.

    Since Microsoft has published its auto-save frequency for all of its integration partners (see https://wopi.readthedocs.io/en/latest/scenarios/coauth.html), could box implement a process to check for the auto-save in the window specified by Microsoft, and alert the end user if it’s not occurring? If box sees…

  4. Google Doc "share" from google.

    When using V2 of the box integration with google docs, apparently the ability to "share" the document from google itself, was apparently removed (it shows as available at 1:05 of this box video https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043696854-Inviting-Collaborators )

    Removing this functionality is not only cumbersome, it creates HUGE potential security issues.

    I would like users in our organization to be able to store these google documents in box, to avoid having to manage multiple file storage systems. For one thing, it is cumbersome and unintuitive to have to go to box to invite a person to collaborate with my google doc. And then…

  5. Could Box have integration with Adobe Bridge?

    When I add tags to files in Bridge, they do not show up on the file when I look at the image in Box. I was told by your support department to contact you so that this integration could be created.

  6. Respect Rights on Box For Teams

  7. Default folder setting for Box for Teams

    Possibility to make the "import your own folder into a channel" become the default option instead of "creating a dedicated file tree" for Box for Teams v2

  9. Ability to Change Current Root Folder for Box.com integration with Salesforce

    To make sure our Salesforce sandboxes are kept up to date with our production instances. We refresh our Salesforce Sandbox every quarter. With the manage package installed after we refresh the Salesforce instance. We don't have the ability to change the Current Root Folder to a different folder meant for our Sandbox (We have different folders for different Salesforce Sandboxes) and the refresh sandbox is pointing to production. We have to uninstall the manage package and then reinstall and change it to the right folder. Since we have code that is using this, this can't be easily done. Asking for…

  11. Skip SSO login for Microsoft Teams

    Please can we implement this to save all Box + Teams users getting prompted to login to Box from Teams after every Teams launch? (Staff are using SharePoint instead of Box as the user experience is easier)

  12. Ability to use Box embed widget on separate Salesforce apps (such as "Sales Console")

    Ability to use Box embed widget on separate Salesforce apps (such as "Sales Console")

    Salesforce has features like "Sales Console" that has a different UI/UX than what Box for Salesforce integration currently supports, and Box embed is not behaving correctly within those apps. We would like Box for Salesforce to support the apps of this kind.

  14. Edit Box files directly in Teams

    When files are stored directly inside of Teams, you can click on these files and “Edit in Teams” directly. If you click on files sourced from Box, however, you get an ugly preview of the file and have to navigate to Box in order to make edits, which is a clunky experience.

    Doing this will require Box to inherit sharing rules as defined in Teams. In other words, I should be allowed to at least view if not edit files shared with me in Teams, even if I don't have access to the underlying folder in Box. Perhaps it could…

    We are exploring approaches to enable editing within Teams as this is a highly requested feature. Given the complexity to implement, we do not have a shareable timeline at this point.

  15. Users want to add a function that allows them to select the association from the existing Box folder when they create a new folder in SFDC

    This is a request for improvement about Box for salesforce. The article below describes the "Creating Record-Specific Folders" feature, but instead of creating a new folder for salesforce records, users want to associate the folder that Box has already created with the salesfore record. Users want to add a function that allows them to select the association from the existing Box folder when they create a new folder in salesforce.

  17. Remove OneDrive & SharePoint as storage location when deploying Box for Teams

    Box is our central location for all content across our company. We also use Microsoft Teams for collaboration, which is why we're excited to roll out the new Box integration with Teams. However, there are still ways users can accidentally upload files to OneDrive & SharePoint. This may be a Microsoft limitation, but can Box find a way to remove these as options when we turn on your integration? We want Box as the only storage location for any file uploaded to Microsoft Teams.

    Bring the Box for Google Docs & Sheets up to date with the native Google Docs/Sheets/Slides, including implementing the eg locking cells, Macros, add-ons etc so customers can really stay on Box and not have to go through other apps/UIs.
