Box Product Release Notes Blog!

by on ‎02-07-2017 11:36 AM

Hi everyone, 


After hearing member feedback, we have created a separate blog for Product Release Notes to help users subscribe to the specific updates they need! Like the Box Product News blog, you can filter articles by using product labels.


As a reminder, we recently announced the new Product News blog where you can stay up to date on the latest launches and announcements!


Please subscribe to the Product Release Notes blog to stay up to date on latest releases.

Instructions for subscribing to community content are here!

Updated Product News!

Hey everyone!


Today, we are excited to introduce the Product News blog! This new blog will replace our previous Product News articles and consolidate all product information and latest announcements for easier viewing and sorting.


We believe this change will:

  • make it easier to find our announcements via search
  • make each announcement easier to read
  • make it easier to share and link to announcements


However, this change will mean that any old subscriptions in Product News will no longer be updated. To keep up to date on current announcements, please subscribe to the Product News blog directly. You can find instructions for subscribing to community content here.


And don't worry - our old knowledgebase articles from 2016 and 2015 will still be available in the archived section for your reference!


Did you know?

  • Labels can help! Search and find specific announcements for products and statuses by clicking on the labels on the right side. Collect the latest "Launches" or "Coming Soon" posts on one page!

  • Subscribe! With each label, you can suscribe to that unique filter and receive updates directly to your email. A yellow banner with the option to subscribe will be available at the top!

New Year, New Features!

Hello everyone and Happy New Year to you all!

Over the holidays, we've added some new features to help your experience with the forums! 


1. Search before post suggestions on new topics in all forums!


When posting in the forums, as you type in the subject, you will now see suggestions of related articles to your topic. Check out those suggestions to see if the answer has already been posted in the forum or in another help article!


2. New layout for posting images and editing; insert images now through URL!

You'll see a new layout when inserting image with options of uploading photos by dragging files or using a URL. You can now use a Box direct shared link to images from your Box account!


Be sure to check out the edit features by clicking the pencil in the top right corner of the image and you can quickly align or edit your photos. Images from your profile album will be available as well and you can easily resize your photos and have them inline with your text!


3. Preview images in a full screen view!

Clicking on an image within a post will prompt a full screen with the options to kudos and view with the user's profile! View the publishing history as well as the other user's helpful images.

Check out these changes and let us know if you have any other ideas or feedback! More changes to come, but happy posting!
