Box has launched a new feature that makes it easier to navigate through documents with multiple pages to find what you need. When viewing a document preview, you will now see thumbnails of each page. Click on the thumbnail to navigate quickly to that page.
First up, Box has released the new simplified sharing experience to Box Web. The new sharing process gives quick access to adding collaborators and creating shared links.
To open the Share window, right-click or use the ellipses (…) menu and then click Share. Now you can invite collaborators to work on content together, or create a shared link to distribute content, all in the same window!
The default location of the Box Drive folder does not allow collaborators to access absolute links set by another user and required by some applications, like Excel, Word, InDesign, etc. If your users work with applications that require an absolute path outside of their operating system’s user directory, their Box Drive folder can now exist elsewhere in the file system, allowing for use of linked files and spreadsheets.
Please note this change does not allow other users of the same computer to access another user’s Box Drive content, even in they can access the path configured for the Box Drive folder. The Box Drive folder is still only available to only the user logged in to the same operating system session as the Box Drive application.
Box has posted the final release notes for Drive v2.4, which will be rolling out soon. Box Drive v2.4 will include a Sync uninstaller that starts when Box Drive is launched. The process can be automated by registry key, too.
The process will guide the user through completing any pending synchronization, uninstalling Box Sync, and logging in to Box Drive.
After April 30, 2019, Box will end support for Box Sync, Box Tools, Notes for Desktop and Box Drive on MacOS 10.12 Sierra. Per Box OS support policy, they will maintain support on the two latest versions of MacOS, 10.13 High Sierra and 10.14 Mojave.
Box Web is about to get a simplified sharing experience with more a consistent way to share files and folders. You'll have a single, central place from which to invite collaborators, generate shared links and manage permissions.
