  2. use @mention in the Office suites of software (Words, Excel, PowerPoint)

    Currently, we are able to do commenting of the document in Box by using the @mention. But we are not able to do the same when we are editing document in the native Ms Office software eg Words, Excel & PowerPoint. The @mention does not work.

    Would like to have the same feature when we are working in the native document?

  3. Fix Version History for Co-Authored Files

    Now that co-authoring is available on Office files (which is a great feature!) version history is paying the price. On files that are edited often, the version history is growing out of control which leads to two primary issues:

    1 - Since only the last 100 versions of a file are available, the significant increase in versions caused by co-authoring means you may only have a few days worth of version history instead of months or years of history. Consider more version history and/or the ability to specify on a file how often an "accessible" version is saved for viewing…

  4. Ability to read files in view only MSFT Online

    With preview not always displaying the content accurately we would like the ability to open content in Office Online but with only viewer permission. This would allow users restricted to View only to view the content accurately.

  6. 16:9 default slide size for PowerPoint creation from a folder

    When we create a PowerPoint from +New button, the plane slides will be shown with Standard, 4:3.
    According to the current standard, could you change the default size from 4:3 to 16:9? Or Could we have the setting that we can change the default size by ourselves?

  7. An option for Admin to toggle and lock Personal Workspace to NOT share with others.

    People use their Personal Workspace to create and share documents with important information. If they leave the company, then those they shared with lost the data (after XX days). SOLUTION: provide Admin the option to toggle and lock Personal Workspace to NOT share.

  9. Comments in the preview and the word/docx file should be synchronized

    Right now, there are two layers of comments when reviewing a word/docx file. If comments are added in the preview, they are not visible when the file is opened in editing/review mode. Furthermore, if comments are marked as resolved in the online editor, the "resolved" status is not persistent if the file is downloaded, edited offline, and uploaded again as a new version.

  10. Edit Locked files when Co-Authoring is turned on by the user trying to edit

    Our workflow uses both coauthoring and often requires locking files to prevent others from editing while in use. The new coauthoring with Office locks out the user that is trying to edit the file. It would be nice to be able to use both when needed. Now, if a user tries to lock a file to prevent access to it while editing, that same user that locked the file is prevented from editing it. Or maybe add an additional option to edit and lock.

  11. Ability to tick checkbox in MS word

    It would be great to be able to tick checkboxes on a document created in Microsoft Word without downloading the file, opening it in Microsoft Word, and then reupload it.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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。

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
