How UBbox Works with Other Applications and Apps

With a UBbox account, you will always be able to upload, download and view and share your files through a supported Web browser by visiting ubbox.buffalo.edu. However, to get the most out of your account, you may want to consider these other applications.

Integrating UBbox with Your Other Applications

Integrating with Microsoft Office Online

Box + Office Online integration lets you access and edit the Microsoft Office documents you have in UBbox directly from your browser. See Integrating with Microsoft Office Online >

Integrating with Google Docs

All UBbox accounts are easily configurable for use with Google Docs. Google Docs also allows you to work with your collaborators on a document at the same time. See Integrating with Google Docs >

Moving from UB File Service (UBfs) Myfiles

UBbox is the campus's central file storage and sharing solution, and offers a substantial upgrade from UBfs in terms of collaboration capabilities, security, and ease-of-use. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to move their files out of UBfs Myfiles at their earliest convenience. Learn how >

Recommended Box Apps

Box Sync for Your Desktop

Box Sync is a program that can be installed on your Windows or Mac computer. As the name implies, it keeps the files on your computer and the files out on UBbox in "sync." See Keeping Your Files Up-to-Date with Box Sync for more information.  

Box Mobile App

If you want to use your smartphone or tablet with UBbox, get the official Box App. See Download and Install the Box App for instructions for your device.

Box Notes

This real-time note-taking app can help with all kinds of collaboration. Box Notes allows teams to work on the same notes simultaneously, and to see and comment on each other's contributions. Box Notes are visible from both the desktop and mobile view. Learn how to download and install Box Notes.

More Box Apps

The apps above are just the beginning. You can download additional apps to easily launch programs to edit documents you are viewing, open different kinds of files and much more. See Doing More with Box Apps for more information about finding and installing Box Apps, or go right to Box's list of official apps.
