About accepting a Box sharing request from someone

If you haven't yet started using IU Box, see Getting 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 CAS to log in with your IU credentials. A few applications will not redirect you to CAS; these require you to enter an external password. Do not enter your IU passphrase on any non-IU login screen.
