Cornell Box is a service provided by Box.com; as such, we enjoy all of the same functionality and features. Please use Box.com's Community & Help Pages for answers to many of your questions.
Box also provides video tutorials, best practices, webinars, and more. See Box User Resources.

Note: When you first log in to your Cornell Box account, hover your mouse under How to Get Started (on the right side of the page) to be guided through basic steps for using Box.

If you create an external password, you will be able to log in to your Cornell University Box account from a standard Box login screen, instead of having to use cornell.box.com and going through CUWebLogin.

An external password also make it possible to use certain features, like Box SimpleShare, which do not support Cornell authentication.
Attention: Do not use your NetID password for your Box external password.
To create an external password:
Once you have saved your password, you will be able to log in to www.box.com and m.box.com (Box's mobile site) using your NetID@cornell.edu and the external password.
