  • Full editing capabilities: All of the editing features that have made Office Online the standard for creating documents, spreadsheets and presentations in the cloud, will be completely functional from the Box platform and available with the same interface that our users are familiar with.
  • Easier collaboration with share: Soon, users will be able to share content in Office Online in the same easy way it’s done in Box – by just clicking on the Share button, users are prompted with the granular collaboration controls they expect from Box.
