New Box Experience

Starting February 12, 2017, Box users will see a message when they enter Box presenting them with the option to enable the new Box experience. If dismissed, the banner will re-appear every three days. Users who turn on the new experience this way will be able to switch back to the current Box environment at any time.

The new interface includes

  • New clean look that loads 30% faster
  • Details moved to new right side bar
  • Frequent actions put across the top
  • New left side bar for navigation
  • New Favorites and Synced to Desktop collections to focus on what's important
  • Favorites may be chosen as default home page from settings
  • New powerful search bar: search by type, date modified, owner
  • Sort display by clicking on column headers
  • In Tile view, a folder of photos turns into a gallery
  • Watch HD and 360 videos right from Box without downloading files
  • Copy (ctrl-C) and Paste (ctrl-V) now supported
