Using Office Online from Box

A new feature has recently been added to Baylor’s Box instance. With the recent addition of Office 365 to Baylor’s suite of available software, you are now able to edit Office documents stored in Box in the online versions of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.

When viewing files in a list of files when logged into Box on the web, you can right-click on the file and choose to edit the file in the desktop version of the appropriate application (if Box Edit is installed) or you can edit using the online version of the application. Your options will appear similar to this:

right click open file

You can also preview the file by clicking the document and then choose to open the file from there, by clicking the “Open with…” button and selecting the desktop application or the online version:

open from preview

Please contact the Help Desk at 254-710-4357 or if you have any questions about this feature.
