Common Questions

I shared a folder and files with people outside of UB. How do they log into UBbox to access them?

Collaborators outside of UB with whom you have shared folders and files receive an invitation to create a box account and accept UB terms. They should follow the directions in the email invite to create a free box account. They will then log into box.com (not UBbox) to view shared files.
