With the Box for Microsoft Teams integration, you can use the content you have in Box through the familiar interface of Microsoft Teams. Share and access content stored in Box directly from within Microsoft Teams – without flipping back and forth between programs. This saves you time, streamlines administration, and facilitates team collaboration. More importantly for your enterprise, it enables Box to be your full content layer when using Microsoft Teams.
For a Box-only content experience within Teams, turn off key content entry points into OneDrive and SharePoint as an O365 administrator. The setting ensures your end users fully adopt Box for content management with Teams and keeps content in the right place.
This integration is a significant enhancement when compared to an earlier, more limited integration between Box and Microsoft Teams. Learn more about the difference between the two versions.
Content doesn’t have to originate in Box to be shared via this integration. For example, files on your local machine are automatically uploaded into a secure Box folder when you share them via Teams. They are not sent to native content stores such as OneDrive and SharePoint.
