Today, we’re delighted to announce exciting new updates coming soon to our integration with Box. New features that will help people connect and work faster.
Workplace integrates seamlessly with the tools you use every day. These integrations with productivity software like Box can help put Workplace at the heart of your organization.
Working with Box to solve shared problems
Keep your document decisions in one place
By enabling the people in your Workplace group to see the full contents of your Box folder, you’re helping improve collaboration and decision making. It means better conversations about projects and quicker decisions on documents. Which is particularly important on the critical projects that involve lots of documents like marketing campaigns or financial planning.
We’ve made it easy to share your Box folder with Group Admins and to link multiple folders to a group. You can also set multiple groups to link to the same Box folder. And when you add new members to the group they’ll automatically receive permissions to the right folders every time.
Extra compliance controls
This update also gives you greater controls when sharing files. Together with Box, we’ve built a solution that helps customers with compliance policies which prevent third-party image capture. The new box preview enables you to select the type of image that group members see when they access a shared file or a folder. It means users can select a simple document preview image without Workplace capturing an image of the document.
You’ll automatically start seeing the Box previewer to view over 120 different file types. To opt-in to secure previewing for all file types just get in touch and ask us to disable caching of cloud files.
What’s the process?
- Admins of the Workplace community enable the integration
- You can select Box files from the post composer via the “Add File” button to generate previews
- You can share links to Box files directly into posts to generate previews
- Group admins visit the files tab to link folders

Making integrations work
Workplace Premium also includes built-in content integrations with other leading enterprise services so it’s easier for you to share, preview and organize files. System Admins can also use APIs to develop custom integrations to find new ways for the platform to work for them. This combination enables you to put Workplace at the centre of your organization.
Making integrations work is an important part of Workplace. They’re helping us achieve our mission to give the world a place to work together. And we love working closely with partners like Box to discover new ways to improve collaboration in the workplace.
