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.
Box has released some new features, which are now available on BuckeyeBox. These features include timestamps, as well as updates to Box Sync 4.0, the iPhone and iPad apps and m.Box.com.

The BuckeyeBox service is officially launching for campus-wide use, as of today. A.box.com website still has some improvements to make. Ohio State holds high standards for accessibility and we hope to see several improvements for this tool so that persons with disabilities have a truly equal experience when using BuckeyeBox, compared to the average user.
Studies show that about 29% of security breaches involve emails that contain malicious links or attachments that, when clicked, give the attacker a foothold in the victim’s network. A key goal of the university email migration project is to safeguard against these attacks. With 52% of users on campus migrated, this project represents a huge step toward securing university information.
A file sharing and collaboration tool is only valuable with mobility and versatility. That’s why the BuckeyeBox team has tested and synched with three additional mobile applications to unite with Ohio State’s cloud collaboration tool: CloudOn, Notability and iAnnotate.
