Box is committed to creating a seamless experience no matter where your content is surfaced. Previously, Box customers have used the Share with Slack app to share files from the Box web-app to Slack via a sidebar button.
Now, the improved version of this feature is coming to the Box for Slack app in conjunction with the EOL of Share with Slack.
This enhanced feature will allow customers using Box for Slack to:
Quickly share a Box file link via a button on the Box web-app sidebar.
Preview and edit a message containing the Box file link directly in Slack
Enable a Box file to be shared to multiple Slack conversations
Provide more options to manage access permissions for the shared file
This feature has become available starting the week of October 30, 2023. If you currently have the Box for Slack app available, its new Share with Slack from Box Web capability will be automatically activated for you, replacing the end-of-life’d Share with Slack. This automatic migration is performed over November and December 2023. You can use the [Admin Console > Apps > Individual Application Controls > Box for Slack] in order to opt out / opt in for the entire organization or the Box App Center to switch it off / on for your individual user account.
