Box is making updates to the web application in order to improve the user experience. These changes will begin rolling out on Tuesday, October 27, with expected completion by the end of Monday, November 2. The experience has a new look and feel, is more intuitive and includes performance improvements such as increased speed of use. The changes are mainly design focused, with minor functionality updates.
We released BuckeyeBox campus-wide in the fall of 2013 and usage has steadily increased over the past two years. This year, we’re excited to announce that BuckeyeBox now has unlimited storage.
In addition, we’re excited to announce that the maximum file size has increased from 5 GB to 15 GB. With these updates, you can use BuckeyeBox to collaborate on more projects than ever!
We would like to inform you about an auto-upgrade that is planned for Box Edit from Version 2 to Version 3 on June 15 that may require action on your end to ensure the application functions properly in your environment. If you have deployed Box Edit to users within your organization, please follow the steps below prior to June 15 to verify that Box Edit Version 3 functions as expected in your environment.
Box will soon release a redesigned “preview” experience for users. You will still be able to preview files on BuckeyeBox without downloading, but the overall look will be a little different and some functionality will change.
The new experience is scheduled to roll out to users over the next couple weeks. Want to get an early preview? Check out these screenshots for an early look; these screen give you a point-by-point overview of the changes. Here’s a brief overview of the changes:
Throughout the coming quarters, Box will remove some functionality to make room for an even better product. Below are the upcoming EOLs for this current quarter. Please review additional information on the Box support site.

Box for Office 365
This week Box launched the updated Box for Office 365. These new integrations support Office 2013 (and Office 2010) desktop applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook) and make it easy for your teams to use Box and Office 365 together. You can open, save, edit and share documents directly from Office 365 (Office 2013 and Office 2010) without compromising the security and mobile access you get from Box.
Did you know that Ohio State offers all students, faculty and staff a free and easy way to share files and folders online? BuckeyeBox, available through a partnership with Box, allows users to have up to 50 GB of storage. Through cloud collaboration, users can add other BuckeyeBox users to folders and even assign tasks.
