This document provides a general overview of getting started with Box at Rice University.
Box at Rice University is an enterprise cloud-based storage and collaboration service that allows you to invite Rice colleagues and non-Rice colleagues to share files and folders in an online workspace. Files can be accessed anywhere from any device with Internet access. Additionally, you can create unique links, passwords, and expiration dates to retrieve to any file or folder, rather than sending large email attachments. It is important to consider the contents of the information stored there.
A collaborator is an individual who has been invited to share a file or a folder. Collaboration invites are a great way to share content for long term projects. You can invite people to a folder and monitor updates over time. When a user is added to a folder as a collaborator, the folder will appear in their "All Files" page. If you send a collaboration invitation to a person without a Box account, that person will be prompted to sign up with Box before being able to access the content.
There are two primary ways to share content with colleagues and other associates:
