  1. Box for Teams v2: Bunch of files will be shown when the files has shared in direct chat

    When the files has shared in the direct chat, it will be uploaded in "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder on sender side, on the other hand, for the receiver side, files will be listed in the top directory, which leads to list bunch of files in the top directory.

    It would be nice, if the new folder will be created for the each chat under "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder and add collaboration for the folder when the direct chat has started.

  2. 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.

  3. Microsoft Teams iOS app does not open the specific Box folder.

    We're having an issue with Microsoft Teams app on iPhone - Box files plug-in within More tab. It is very possible that this Box Files button in Teams is not designed to link to the specific channel Box folder we have chosen, and instead is designed to redirect us to the All Files page "https://account.box.com/folder/0". On Windows PC, Teams app opens the the specific channel Box folder we have chosen.

  6. Limit the SFDC tenant which can be integrated via Box for salesforce to the one allowed by Box Admin

    In the current Box for Salesforce integration, Box Admin can't limit the Salesforce tenant which can be integrated and Box for Salesforce integration can be setup with normal Box accounts so normal employee can set up Box for Salesforce by using their normal Box account and Salesforce Developer edition.

    Even if the company prohibit to access Box from a private computer from home or outside the company network, once this integration was setup and access token was give to Box for Salesforce application a user can retrieve the contents via Box for Salesforce from a private computer.

    So this can…

  7. Enhanced Box notifications in Microsoft Teams

    Enhanced Box notifications in Microsoft Teams

    A new feature has been released for receiving Box notifications in Microsoft Teams, but it is limited to a few notifications such as Mentioned Comments.

    It would be very useful to extend this feature to receive notifications in Microsoft Teams when uploads or downloads are made in folders you are collaborating on, or when tasks are assigned in Box Relay.

  8. Open app in one click

    preview adds no value just adds clicks, tabs, and frustration. Either a button to open in a preselected app or just an option to do it on a double click

  10. Enhance the Box for DocuSign Integration in terms of metadata

    We would like to put some information of DocuSign Envelope (such as contract data, term of contract, type of contract etc.) into Box metadata instance in an automated way. Currently, there's two ways users would be able to do are; 1. users manually populate metadata such as transaction amount in signed document or 2. using iPaaS (Workato) to automate populating metadata. No.1 is inefficient and time-consuming and has human-error risk. No.2 requires additional cost. This is actually required by Japanese local law when we save financial documents digitally. The law is called Denshi Chobo Hozon Hou. This becomes a huge…

  11. Edit Box files without having to leave Teams

    Allow editing of Box files directly in Teams. The current implementation of the Box integration with Teams is too limiting. Without editing, it is rather useless.

  12. Opening links from PPTs in Box

    Currently I can nicely preview files created with Microsoft Powerpoint. Also these days I can click links in the PPT and those open up. With the exception of links containing a hashtag. Then only the part of the URL before the hashtag character is opened up. I believe this is a real live bug in the way links are handled.

    e.g. I have this URL linked in my PPT
    https://www.mycompany.com/#/offering/8EEB4F8F
    If I try to click this link through Box I'm getting sent to https://www.mycompany.com/

  13. 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.

  14. Watson integration

    It has been a real torture to be able to integrate box with watson discovery, first because of the authorization issue, second, once we have the new authorized app there is no way to have a UI to access it easily. second when we try to integrate watson discovery absolutely nothing appears.

    The documentation is not clear from both watson and Box.

  16. 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.

  17. High Security Permissions Risk with Box Teams Integration on Private Channels that gets Box folder Auto-Created

    Box support needs to address this error immediately.

    Currently, Teams Private Channels are not supposed to have the ability to add the Box app. The behavior we've seen is that if the private channel already exists prior to adding the Box app to the Teams group, the Box app gets added to that private channel as well where it auto creates a Box folder. It works if private channel is added after Box app has been added to the Teams group.

    The response I got from Box support is that they are planning to eventually integrate the Box app in…

  18. Microsoft Office, most recent documents

    • In Microsoft Office, if you want to open a recent document, it only shows you your 3 latest documents from Box, whereas with our old server (or items you save directly to your computer), it goes back MONTHS.

  19. Allow direct access in saving files from box for Outlook to Box Drive

    Currently the 'box for outlook' add-on for desktop outlook in only linked to box.com requiring passwords frequently.
    Please allow this to direct to 'box drive' , which will ease the process in saving attached files. When working on desktop PC's box drive is quicker to manage.

    Would also be helpful to have functions, such as link/enable collaboration including box notes via box drive will be added soon.

  20. 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…
