Set up a Web Page for Uploading Restricted Files to UBbox

IT staff may choose to create a means of allowing people within their department to upload sensitive files to UBbox from a web page. Uploads can be restricted to a group.


  1. Create a folder in UBbox with the following suggested naming scheme: RESTRICTED <school/dept> <dept code> Document Uploads
  2. Set permissions on the folder.  Since it's restricted, do this with a group, which takes a day or two to work.
  3. Under the ... menu for the newly created folder, click File Request, then Settings.
  4. Select the following options:
    • Request a file description
    • Request an email address
    • Click Save
  5. Click Edit
    • Provide a meaningful title
    •  Add instructions on how to upload. 
    • Click Save
  6. Click Share
  7. Click the copy upload embed widget icon: </>
  8. Place the embed code on a web page.  Generally, this goes on a department website but is not linked to from the main page.  Whoever is responsible for accepting uploads can send the link to individuals who will be uploading files.
