with Box. The online file storage and sharing service previously
introduced integrations with Office 365 on the desktop and Office for
iPad and iPhone. The company also offers the Box app for Windows 10 and
Outlook apps for iPhone and iPad.
New Box integrations with Microsoft include:
for Office Online with real-time co-authoring, which lets multiple
users work with Word, Excel and PowerPoint files concurrently, and
edits from all users are automatically saved in Box;
integration with Office for iOS now lets people create and edit Office
files saved in Box directly from the Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps
for iOS; and
- Box integration with Outlook.com lets people
attach files stored in Box to outgoing e-mail messages, eliminating the
need to download them to the desktop before attaching them to an e-mail.
On Feb. 4, Box will host a webinar about ways organizations can take advantage of the latest integrations between Box and Microsoft.
