About Box Sync
Note: Before using Sync on mobile devices, see Using enterprise Box on mobile devices.
The Sync feature for enterprise Box allows you to easily sync files between your desktop and other devices. This is especially useful for files you wish to be able to access offline and/or work on frequently.
To download Sync, log into your enterprise Box
My Account at the top, click
Sync and follow the prompts. If you don't
see the Box Sync option, contact the Support Center.
After you have installed the Sync application, check
Use my company's single sign-on credentials (Windows) or
Use Single Sign On (Mac), or select the Single
Sign-on option for your mobile device. Enter your IU email
address, and authenticate with your Network
ID username and passphrase.
- Box does not sync files by default. You will need to log into Box
on the web and indicate which folders you wish to sync.
- Box must sync with the
My Box Filesfolder; if you rename this folder, Box will re-create it and duplicate the synced files.
- BoxSync is not intended as a tool for uploading folders; instead, log into Box on the web and use the Upload Folders feature.
