Sharing Documents in Box

Details

There are two ways to share files in Box - via collaboration or via a shared link.

Collaborator: Invite someone into a folder as a collaborator if you're working with them on an ongoing basis, and they need persistent access to the content you're sharing. Click Invite People on the sidebar of the folder. A pop-up window will appear. Enter the full email address of the individual you’d like to add (e.g. [email protected] rather than [email protected]). Enter a semi-colon between addresses if adding multiple collaborator's at the same time.

Shared link: Send someone a shared link to a folder or file if you merely need to provide quick, read-only access (much in the way you'd send an email attachment). Your recipient can continue to reference that link for the most up-to-date version of the content. Click Share found at the end of the line of the file or folder you're going to share.
