Box is expanding its integrations with Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams, to make it easier for users on the platforms to collaborate on projects by easily accessing content. For instance, the integrations today enable Box notifications to show up in Microsoft Teams so users get crucial updates on the content they work on.

As soon as any changes occur, the users can know about it from any of the integrated platforms.

Box said that it will step up integration even more towards the end of Spring, so the experience is embedded in Teams.

What’s new?

The enhancements will come with new features to give users the ability to create, share and open Box files within Teams.

They can edit them there too. Box’s Chief Product Officer, Varun Parmar, said in a blog post that the features will enable Box users to bring in content from Microsoft, Google, and Apple productivity suites and get more work done on their app of choice.

Moving to security, Box said that it is adding a new integration that will make it possible to import Microsoft Information Protection classification labels and enforce the same inline protocols in Box Shield.

The box of integrations has more

Microsoft Office Online is also getting an integration that helps users comply with cloud requirements.

Box Connector for Microsoft Graph, which was released in ‘preview mode’ last year September, will become generally available this summer. With it, users can surface any content stored in Box, across the entire Microsoft ecosystem.

This includes tools like Office 365, SharePoint, Office Online, among others. The updates show how Box is committed to being the cloud layer for content management across organizations, through crucial integrations of popular systems used.
