The Box Web Application is about to get even better, with a simplified sharing experience that delivers a more consistent and streamlined way to share files and folders. Rather than navigating to multiple places to share content, you'll have a single, central place from which to invite collaborators, generate shared links and manage permissions. More information, including before and after screenshots, about the updates in this release can be found here.

This update will soon first be available as a Public Beta, enabled directly from the Box Admin Console, with the full launch happening later this year. We'll be providing more detailed resources about this opt-in public beta soon, so stay tuned!

Note: This release has been reverted and will be re-launched at a later date.


We have updated the Upload Embed Widget based on customer feedback in order to support multiple files being uploaded in the widget at once. There are no additional functionality changes in this release and no action required for existing widgets in use; these will automatically upgrade to the latest update.

We have updated the Preview sidebar navigation to move to a vertical tab bar model instead of the current 'Activity' and 'Details' headers to streamline navigation and make way for future updates planned for Preview. More information, including screenshots, available here.

We have made it even easier to manage your Box Apps from the Admin Console Apps Page . These changes make it easier to enable/disable Official Box Managed Apps, such as Box Drive, Notes, and the Box Mobile Apps. Previously, you were required to sift through our large list of first-party and third-party apps, and this UI update improves that experience for managing Box Apps.
 
Now, we have simplified things for you so you can easily see which apps are enabled/disabled by navigating the the subsections and check individual or large groups of Box apps. 
 
Take a look and see which Box apps, such as Box Mobile or Drive, you can be leveraging to enable your enterprise to be even more successful.

App configuration settings for existing Box users will remain the same and you will see the same settings when you expand the Official Box Managed Apps.

Starting in July we'll be updating the layout and navigation of the Metadata experience in the Preview sidebar. This update is focused on simpler navigation across Metadata templates for a file. This updated experience will be progressively enabled when opening the Preview page first from Recents or Favorites, followed by Search, and then All Files. Learn more here

We’ll be launching an in-app notification from the ‘?’ icon in the Web App header that informs users about our recently released features in the web app, such as the ability to access and add Favorites directly in the left sidebar. This message will be shown to users automatically only once, but will be available for one week afterward by clicking the ‘?’ icon again.

We’ve officially updated the Access Stats feature in the new web experience to make it easier than ever to see what’s been happening on a file, including:

  • Adding in 'Edit' and 'Comment' as additional activity types in Access Stats
  • Streamlining the Access Stats pop-up interface and totals
  • Allowing you to see more than the most recent 50 entries in the pop-up feed, and showing you recent updates in the right sidebar
