Today, there is no way for Platform app developers to have end users edit Box content directly from within their applications. Instead, users need to download their files first, open them up, make edits and save them, then re-upload the changes back to Box, all of which create a cumbersome experience for users. To solve this problem, we are very excited to announce that Platform app developers can now make this experience more delightful than ever by integrating the Open With element into their own custom web applications so users can edit content directly from Box seamlessly using the Box Tools capability built into the Open With element. Starting January 18th, users will be able to leverage the Box Tools capability within the Open With element to seamlessly open up Box files from 3rd party web applications using their native desktop applications and automatically save any file changes directly back to Box.
