A new feature in Box is now available which is co-authoring in Microsoft 365 applications from your desktop. Enabling this feature accesses and saves files in Box on the Cloud allowing for real-time co-authoring while using Office 365 applications whether working in Office applications installed on your desktop or on the web -- with all edits automatically saved to Box in the Cloud.

To enable this in your Office 365 applications, add Box as a location for saving.  Please reference this knowledgebase article for additional information adding this feature in Windows OS or Mac OS:
