Better support for offline work and cloud services

My company uses Box and I often use Word while commuting offline. Two things:
- to open a file from Box, I have to take many steps: ...More to open iCloud document picker, locations, Box, file. The number of steps could be reduced, if I could select Box from the main menu, like Dropbox and OneDrive
- if I use Word to edit a file stored in an offline folder in Box and save and close it, the file disappears from Word. It is somewhere in an invisible upload queue and only when I go back online, it will start to upload to Box. This is a problem if I want to re-open the file while offline. Moreover, if I have to reconnect to a slow connection, the uploading will be slow and actually be cancelled. If that happens, I lost all my edits. I would like to see that Word automatically keeps a version stored locally, visible and editable to the user, until it has been completely uploaded to Box.
