Soon we will release a new and improved way for customers using the new Box web interface to preview Excel spreadsheets in Box. With this new capability, users will be able to flip between Excel sheets, search for specific cells, and sort content all from preview mode in Box without ever downloading the file or opening Excel. To learn more about the new experience coming soon, please review documentation here. Currently, the enable/disable controls are live in the admin console now for both old and new web experiences. However, excel previewer is only available to users on the new web experience.
Prior to releasing this for all end-users, there will be controls available from the Box Admin Console that allow you to govern whether this new experience is enabled or disabled for your organization. By default, this new Excel preview experience will be enabled for all end-users leveraging the new Box web interface when released in the next few weeks, unless you disable all new published applications by default from the Box Admin Console (in which case it will be disabled until you take action to enable it). If you need additional support, please submit a case to our User Services team.Please note that free users will already see this capability in their accounts already.
