Join Nick Brazzi for an in-depth discussion in this video New cloud storage options, including Box, part of Up and Running with Office for iPads and iPhones.
- [Voiceover] Earlier in this course,…when we talked about file management,…we looked at cloud storage tools like OneDrive and Dropbox.…So, naturally, if I go into one of the Office apps,…I go to the Open section,…I can open files from my OneDrive…or from my Dropbox account.…One of the new features added to the Office apps recently…is an expanded support for different cloud storage services.…So now, if I were to hit this button that says Add a Place,…you can see that there is a new cloud storage service…available on this list that we did not see earlier,…the service called Box.…
So the first obvious part of this new feature is here.…If you have a Box account,…and you have Office documents stored on that account,…you can link that account…and access those files here in the Office apps.…But there's also a sort of behind-the- scenes thing…happening here.…Microsoft is expanding support…for other cloud storage tools in general.…It's a feature they call the Cloud Storage Partner Program.…And it makes it easy for other cloud storage services…
