Archived – Box Product News


As we've communicated previously, 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. You can find more information about the updates in this release, including screenshots of the old and new experiences, at our Simplified Sharing presentation.

Over the coming weeks, we'll be enabling the new Simplified Sharing experience for all Free (Individual) and Personal Pro users. We'd love to hear your thoughts on the new experience - simply click the 'Beta' label within the new sharing experience to give us your feedback.

Not sure what type of account you have? Simply navigate to the Account tab of Account Settings and look for the 'Account Type' field.


Note: All enterprise customers will be able to opt-in to the beta in the coming weeks via the Box Admin Console. See our Coming Soon article for more information.


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.




We’re always looking for ways to improve sharing and collaboration in Box. To make it easier than ever to invite someone to edit a file, we have officially launched the ability to ‘invite collaborators’ to individual files (previously collaborators could only be invited at the folder level) for our users! Learn more here.
