How to Move In-Line File Comments From Box to Google Drive
The in-line file comments are unique to Box and are different from the normal comments that are added in a document for a particular text. Many tools support migrating file comments from Box to Google Drive. But you shouldn’t forget about in-line file comments when moving Box files.
The article discusses all you need to know about Box in-line file comments and how you can migrate them to Google Drive.
Why Migrate Box In-Line File Comments?
Using comments and tasks, Box makes it possible to minimize long email chains. The box allows you to add in-line comments to any file type using the Activity sidebar. This allows exchanging your ideas, thoughts, and opinions with people collaborating on the same file.
Also, using the Box Activity sidebar, one can create approval and general tasks. By doing this, the approvers and assignees will receive email notifications and messages in Box, making it easier to work together effectively and productively.
These comments might include important changes to be made to the file, updates on the work process, or other information that needs to be stored for future purposes to track. So, it is important for businesses not to miss these comments when migrating from Box to Google Drive.
But Google Drive doesn’t support the feature of in-line file comments. So, how do you move in-line comments from Box to Google Drive?
