When I use an IUanyWare application, how do I save my files?
Note: In order to ensure optimum performance, your IUanyWare profile is reset at the end of each academic year (between summer and fall); for details, see About the IUanyWare user profile reset.

IU Cloud Storage
The IU Cloud Storage service permits you to specify which of several popular cloud storage services, such as Box at IU, to make available at all times to your IUanyWare session. You may also specify a personal SharePoint site or other IU file share as a storage option; see What is IU Cloud Storage and how can I use it?
Saving files to Box
The IU Box service provides a simple, secure way to share and store files and folders online. Box consolidates your content in a single location, easily accessible from anywhere, on any device. You can create files and folders, share them using a direct link, invite others to collaborate, and continue to revise and review your content. Though similar in appearance to other consumer services such as Dropbox, Box can directly integrate with existing IU systems (e.g., accounts, CAS for single sign-on with your Network ID) and security. Your Box account quota is unlimited.
Your Box account supports advanced collaboration features. For more, see About Box at IU.
