  1. Box for outlook should insert link at cursor location, not at the bottom of the email

    The new "Box for Outlook" attaches an image and link to the specified file at the bottom of the email (perhaps below the user's signature). Some people would prefer to 'just have the link' or to put the link inline with the flow of the email text. Could this be added as a feature /option for the app?

  2. Microsoft Sheet View

    I would like the sheet view that Microsoft recently released for excel online to be enabled. We share online files constantly and its extremely difficult to function when we cant filter without filtering for the entire group.

  5. Direct Link to Open File in Office Online

    Currently, you can create a shared link to an Office file that will cause it to open in Box. You must then click the option to open it in Office Online.

    It would be nice to have a link option that takes you directly to the page to edit the file in Office Online, while still having the file living in Box. Much like a direct download link, but instead, a direct edit link for the integration.

  7. 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.

  9. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
