Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations stored in Cornell Box can now be edited by multiple people at the same time using Office Online apps. This addition puts together the friendly interface, large feature set, and easy usability of Box with the convenience of real-time coauthoring for the most commonly used types of Office files.
This month, you’ll see some improvements and adjustments when logging into the Cornell Box collaboration and storage service. As part of their ongoing effort to make using Box easier and more intuitive, Box has made refinements to the web interface. Most of the changes are not very large. For details, see:
Box Sync and Edit support will be ending for Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) August 1, 2016, and Box browser support for Internet Explorer 9 and 10 will end September 1, 2016. Cornell Box provides unlimited storage and collaboration space for Cornell faculty, students, and staff.
Box Edit is an add-on feature that allows you to edit or create files directly on the Cornell Box collaboration and storage service. Since the introduction of Box Edit 3, most Box Edit users have upgraded. Those still using Box Edit 2 should be aware that that version will stop working on October 31, 2015, and they should upgrade now to continue to use this feature.
