  2. Box for office integration COM add-in problem

    Box for Office causing “Outlook detected a COM add-in problem” . We know that there is a workaround by modifying the registry keys. However, modifying the registry keys a very hard change for the end user so that the customer is asking us to improve this as product.

  4. Display warning if you are opening a file in, for example, Word Desktop when someone else has it open in Word Online.

    I know that you can see that teeny icon in the upper right of the preview window when someone is editing the file in Word Online, for example. But it would be great if there were a warning that pops up to tell you that someone has it open in Online, and to warn you of the consequences of editing it in Desktop. Users get really freaked out when they get the conflict error after the fact, and a warning would at least explain the consequences.

    Hello. This feature already exists in Box. When you have a file open in an online editor (either Office Online or GSuite), there are two indicators that this is occurring:
    (1) a tinycon next to the file name to indicate an open online editing session
    (2) the Open With menu is restricted only to the current online editing session, so you can join a co-editing session for the active tool, but desktop and any other editing tools are disabled for entry

  5. Integrate Box for Office with Box Edit

    Integrate use of Box Edit (Open files from Box.com, edit, and save back) with Box for Office (Create new files in Word, Excel, etc. and save to Box.com folders).

    For example - I frequently generate a series of documents that originate in Box.com, but I want to use the Box SAVE AS command to save them back to the same Box.com folder (or one adjacent to it in the file structure) with a new name. Current functionality when I activate the Box SAVE AS option from an Office application is to treat it like a newly generated file, requiring me…

  9. Updated MS Office Online Functions

    We have the ability to use forms with Excel Online via Office 365, but if we choose to retain those items in Box, we lose all form functionality. We'd like to see an updated version of Office Online available in Box to support these features.

  10. Moveable Uploading window

    When editing a file on your desktop, and then save it back to Box, an uploading window shows in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. It can block other windows, would be great if we could move it around.

  11. File request from Outlook plugin

    It would be FANTASTIC if we could extend the functionality of our the file request feature to the Outlook plug-in. There are many financial service firms (wealth management, family offices, PE, etc.) that do a substantial amount of client on-boarding and constantly have to request documents from them.

    V.1 Doesn't need to be as feature rich as the current experience in Box - we truly just need a way to be able to select a folder, have a link generated for that location, and easily share that link in the body of the email.

  13. Ensure language change in Box.com also displays in applications, especially in dialog boxes, warnings and in the Box group on the Ribbon.

    When I change the display language in Box.com to French, for example, the dialog boxes for Box in the apps (e.g., Word, Outlook etc.) are still in English. Any info or error messages in English, not in French. A good example is the attachment message that pops up asking if you want to save the attachment to Box and attach the file. Also the Box group in the ribbon is still in English, and the tool tips there are also in English.

  14. Choose upload folder for each files by Box for Outlook

    When uploading and attaching files by Box for Outlook, we can't choose some folders each files. Therefore, we can't user Box button and we had to upload by hand.
    My customer request is to choose upload folder for each files.
