Box Notes includes many features like call-out boxes, code blocks, in-line cursors, advanced table, security and control capabilities. It can also include other features like a table of contents and anchor links. With these capabilities, teams can internally or externally collaborate for projects from anywhere and track their progress seamlessly.

The updated Box Mobile app consists of an updated Capture Mode for iOS and Android, the optical character recognition technology along with a redesigned iPad experience that helps users leverage Box as well as stay connected to their content from any device.

Further, Box has deepened its integration with Microsoft 365 to help users in simultaneously collaborating on documents across desktop, web and mobile. Additionally, this will permit customers to use Box as their default storage option in Teams.

Both the companies already have tens of thousands of joint customers. This enhanced integration is likely to help them retain those customers.

Box also integrated with Slack, which will help joint customers to leverage Box as a content layer in Slack. Users can directly upload files to Box and secure content through the Slack interface.

Box also integrated with Zoom to help users with secure and effective work collaboration across distributed teams. In addition, BoxWorks 2021 showcased the Box app for Zoom, which will help users to browse and share their Box files directly from Zoom.

Tech IPOs With Massive Profit Potential

In the past few years, many popular platforms and like Uber and Airbnb finally made their way to the public markets. But the biggest paydays came from lesser-known names.

For example, electric carmaker X Peng shot up +299.4% in just 2 months. Think of it this way…

If you had put $5,000 into XPEV at its IPO in September 2020, you could have cashed out with $19,970 in November.

With record amounts of cash flooding into IPOs and a record-setting stock market, this year’s lineup could be even more lucrative.
