Box for Microsoft Teams enhancement

Box for Microsoft Teams enhancement

We will be updating the Box for Microsoft Teams integration to provide users with the option of choosing which folder to map their Teams Channel to. Users will still have the option of using the folders that Box has automatically mapped to their Teams Channel for fast and easy deployment if they prefer.

Will mapping an existing folder to a Team sync the folder permissions to the Team members (as the current auto-create and map feature does) or will it utilize the existing folder permissions?

Is this new feature configurable from Box or MS Teams admin console? Our IT team would like to know what we can prepare control before the change impacts all of our users.

@kaustin754 If the Channel includes people who do not have access to the folder you map, Box automatically adds those people as collaborators into the folder.

@DebbyChen this new feature is configurable via Team Owners in the Teams App itself.
