Storing Department Files on Box

The University of Richmond has chosen Box to be its cloud storage and collaboration solution. Departmental Box folders are typically more complex than individual Box folders for several reasons:

  • Members of a department may have differing levels of access. 
  • Departmental folders are persistent (files persist even when individuals leave) and may be subject to official University record retention policies:
  • Departmental folders are often used in conjunction with or in support of business processes, so sharing and access rules are typically more complex and need to be managed over time
  • You will need to designate TWO (or more) departmental co-owners for your highest level departmental folder(s).  These co-owners will be responsible for creating the folder structure as well as assigning and managing permissions for those folders and any sub-folders.

In order for your department to get the most out of Box, we suggest you and/or your team familiarize yourselves with its many features.  Information about Box may be found:
