Box Tools Upgrade Released This Month

Box released a new version of Box Tools (which includes Box Edit) in March 2018. Existing Box Tools Users will be automatically updated to the newest version. The update is being rolled out over time. There is no way to opt out of the update. No user action is required to trigger the update.

If you are new to Box Tools and would like to begin using, you will be prompted to Install the latest version of Box Tools directly within Box, from the dropdown list while viewing a document.
