  1. I would like to add attachments (with shared links) in Outlook on the Web and make the attachment location at the top of the email body.

    When you add an attachment (with a shared link) in Outlook on the Web, it is attached at the bottom of the thread if the text field is expanded.
    However, it is difficult to see the attachment at the bottom of the thread, so please change the setting so that the attachment is added to the top of the email every time. (or add a feature).

    With the current specification, attachments are displayed at the bottom of the message, especially when the body of the message is long, so the recipient may not notice the attachment.

  2. Supporting Text Format in Box for Outlook

    Currently, Box for Outlook is only available in HTML format, which is the only format supported by Outlook and OWA.
    Some companies make only plain text available.
    In this case, Box for Outlook cannot be used, so please make sure that the text format is also available.

    For companies that only use OWA, Box for Outlook is a great way to share data on Box.
    This is expected to improve work efficiency.

    (日本語)
    現在、Box for OutlookはOutlookおよびOWAでサポートされている形式はHTML形式のみです。
    企業によってはプレーンテキストのみを利用可能としています。
    この場合、Box for Outlookが利用できないため、テキスト形式も利用できるようにしてください。

    OWAのみを利用している企業にとって、Box上のデータを共有する手段の一つであるBox for Outlookは非常に最適です。
    これによって作業効率化が期待できます。

    Thanks for your great suggestion! We know this capability would be hugely valuable. This is not something we’re currently working on, but we’re always considering feedback from customers like you in how we work with Microsoft to enhance secure productivity and collaboration.

  5. Directly to presentation mode for PowerPoint files when clicking on URLS to box

    Box should be able to create a URL that will allow the users to display the power point in presentation mode without extra clicks.

    another request is when the user clicks on this link, they cannot click back and look at other files within the same folder.

  6. Make Shared Excel files only editable in Excel online, not downloadable.

    Create an access level for Word and Excel files that allows the user to edit them online, but not download them to /upload a new version of them from their computer. Basically, online edit only.

  7. Allow Excel Formulas to Link Directly to Files on Box

    Currently, when you open Excel on Desktop, it creates a temporary file on your own computer. When trying to connect one report to another through formulas, this results in the formula looking for the report on your desktop instead of the location the report is saved on Box. In order for the formula to update properly, you need to have both reports open at the same time.

  8. Box for Office - Access to Collections

    Now that we can organise our files in Box using Collections, it would be good to be able to access this functionality in the Office Apps. This is 'mainly' relevant to the Outlook Box add-in that comes as part of Box for Office for when you want to save to Box or insert from Box.
    Excel/Word/PowerPoint - I would argue that the best experience is opening from Edge/Chrome using Box Edit.

  9. box for office use several accounts

    I have 2 Box accounts and one instance of Outlook. It'd be very convenient to be able to download / upload using several accounts from Box for office (save attachments in Outlook, attach links, etc.).
    As an example, I have this ability with Adobe Acrobat in which my 2 accounts are linked.

  10. Display the "Notes" section of MS PowerPoint files

    When I open a PPT file in a browser (say Firefox), it would be nice if the box preview could also display the "Notes" section associated with the PPT file under each slide, in the default view. Right now, my workaround is opening the file with MS PPT Online, and clicking on the "Notes" section at the bottom to expand and display any notes associated with individual slides.

  12. Notification if content is screenshot

    We have secure content that we send to vendors as "non downloadable" but we also need to know if they take screenshots of that content. We would like functionality that notifies us if a user takes a screenshot of our content.

  13. My Collections on Box for Outlook App

    I’ve started to use the “Attach from Box” Outlook Addin O365 button, for attaching my documents in email. I’d like to suggest if you are able to see your collections list, to browse from.
    I have so much ‘clutter’ at my All files level and thought, it would be great to see some sort of favourites/collection option.

  14. Increase size of file allowed to be opened online

    We have several large Excel files (example: one that is 16.6 MB) that don't allow for editing/collaboration using Box online. In order to edit it, our team has to take turns: open it in MS Excel and each of us work on the doc one a time. Please allow for larger files to be opened on Excel online since collaboration is one of the hallmarks of using Box for file storage!

  15. Display more tags in new UI

    I want to see the detail of all my tags. The new user interface shows the detail of the first tag and then "2 others", etc. I job share and we each want to see each tag, especially if we widen that column to do so

  17. Box for Office templates

    We have company letterhead templates we are meant to use for all internal and external files. I would love the ability to open up a new/blank Document or Spreadsheet with those attributes already assigned (header/footer/formatting for headers, bullets, etc.).
    This would also "force" users to use the letterhead for uniform documentation.
    Thanks for your consideration!

  18. Shared Link options via Outlook.

    We want to be able to select Shared Link options via Outlook.

    For example, the default setting of [Shared Link] is “People in ***(company name)”.
    Other Shared Link options (Ex: People with the link) cannot be selected, when users “Attach from Box” via Outlook.

    It would be more convenient for users if they can change Shared Link options via Outlook (without opening Box Web App).

  20. MS One Note integration needed

    I use MS One Note very often and would like the ability to share with Box however there are many issues and end up saving the One Note file on a shared drive which does not have the same features as Box...I am trying to move away from utilizing shared drives and using Box primarily, however issues like One Note imcompatibility are preventing me from moving away from shared drives.
