  1. Obtaining hyperlink address after installing Box for Office

    In order to download an excel file saved through Box, you need to click the link, sign on with username and pw and in my company also a push message to your cell phone. After installation of Box for Office after you open the file once there is a shortcut saved under Recent Files. If you click the hyperlink created under Recent Files, you can download the file without the credentials. I would like to open the file through the hyperlink, copy and paste what I need and close the file through VBA but I cannot figure out how to…

  3. 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.

  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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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. 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.

  14. 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.
