ARCHIVED: Accept a Box sharing request

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Information here may no longer be accurate, and links may no longer be available or reliable.

IU's Box cloud storage service was retired on May 10, 2021. For information about cloud storage options available at IU, see Storage at IU.

If you haven't yet started using IU Box, see ARCHIVED: Get started with Box at IU.

If you get a sharing request from someone, log into your IU Box account before accepting it, or you may be taken to a login page requiring several additional clicks to log in. If needed, close the window that opened when you clicked the sharing request, log into your IU Box account, and then accept the sharing request.

When connecting to your IU Box account from any non-IU login screen, enter your IU email address and no password (any password you enter will be ignored). You will be redirected to log in with your IU username and passphrase. A few applications will not redirect you; these require you to enter an external password. Do not enter your IU passphrase on any non-IU login screen.
