  1. Outlook Integration - Box Embed Widget/ Folder Tree View

    It would be useful to offer users of Outlook a view into all of their Box files via a folder tree or embed widget. They could easily drag and drop emails or attachments into the relevant folders to be stored as well as viewing their content/ reading archived emails. Supporting our philosophy of integration and being able to surface content through popular applications. Requested by customer Eric Wright Group in EMEA.

  4. Bold/Italic/ underline option for a single word in a sentence

    Bold/italic/underline and other home page tools options are graded out when selecting a single word in a sentence within a cell on Box Excel online. Suggestion to add the option

  5. Office Online hide collaborator name while coauthoring

    Currently Box Folder setting "Hide collaborators" disables Office Online. I am guessing this is because Office Online will display the name of our co-editors that are currently in the document. We would like to see Office Online support the Hide collaborators setting, by displaying "edited by someone" rather than calling out the name of the co-editors when this folder setting is checked.

  6. Ability to specify display sheet in URL

    <How to specify the Excel display sheet by URL>
    If you add "#p = number of pages" to the end of the URL, you can display the specified page in PowerPoint or Word.
    In Excel, there was no way to specify the URL of the sheet to be displayed when accessing.
    We need the ability to specify an Excel sheet in a URL.
    We hope this function will be realized.

    <Excelの表示シートをURLで指定する方法>
    URLの後ろに「#p=ページ数」を付与すると、PowerPointやWordでは指定のページを表示することができます。
    Excelではアクセス時に表示するシートをURL指定する方法がありませんでした。
    URLでExcelのシートを指定する機能を必要としています。
    この機能の実現を望みます。

  7. Co-edit password-protected files

    Under current specifications, password-protected files are not supported by Box for Office Online and cannot be co-edited.
    The password must be removed on the file for collaborative editing.
    We request the ability to collaborate on editing even passworded files, such as being able to temporarily remove the password on Box.

  8. Ability to create & manage smart/dynamic Folders

    Based on specified criteria, populate a folder with documents stored elsewhere in Box. For example, we have numerous W-9 forms stored in various places in our Box files. We would like to specify a Smart or Dynamic folder with the criterion of populating it with any of our files that have "W-9" in the name. It is essentially a smart search.

  9. Box for Office plug-in (Recent Files or Folders)

    Please increase the number of Recent Files / Folders permitted (currently fixed at 3).
    Personally I can be editing many spreadsheets in a single day, and so this quickly becomes almost useless.
    Ideally allow me to configure this with the optimum number, but just fixing at 10 or 20 would help enormously

  10. 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.

  11. 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。

  12. 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.

  13. Additional restrictions with Box Outlook Add-in for Enterprise and Personal Box accounts

    The Box outlook add-in can connect to enterprise Box accounts as well as personal Box accounts thereby creating a slight risk where individuals can choose to upload sensitive documents into their personal Box accounts even when they are connected to their office outlook email from within the firm infrastructure.
    Need an enhancement to the outlook add-in to only allow for authorized Box accounts to log-in through outlook once they've been granted access to the application through Office 365

  14. Auto-open files when downloaded from Outlook to Box Drive

    Currently when one downloads files from Outlook to box drive on one's laptop/desktop, one has to then go to that folder using file explorer (often several clicks or using the quick access menu) to open the file and then editing it. It would be very useful to have an auto open feature once the file is downloaded. Similar features are already available while using say Gmail on the web browser or even downloading a file from WhatsApp's desktop app.

  15. 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.

    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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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!
