Coming Soon: Displaying Presence (Recent Activity) on All File Types

Community Manager

Late last year, we added the ability to quickly see who’s looked at or edited a Box Note recently with the Presence feature, displaying user avatars in the header of Notes. In this update we’re bringing a similar experience to the Box Web App for all file types. Users, with permission, will see avatars in the header of the Preview page whenever other users have recently previewed, edited, or commented on that file. This change will be gradually rolling out to all users beginning April 18, 2018 and finishing by April 30, 2018. Learn more here.
