UW-Madison Box - Inviting Multiple Collaborators

This document explains how you can add and invite multiple collaborators to a Box folder at once. If you are not yet familiar with the basic process of inviting collaborators to a Box folder, please see the following Box support article: Collaborate on Files

Note: Inviting Google Groups, Office 365 Groups or WiscLists as collaborators on Box folders will not work. You must invite the group members individually.

  1. If you want to add multiple users with the same access level to a folder, it is possible to enter a comma-separated list of email addresses directly into this field. If typed directly into this field, the email addresses will not be immediately recognized by Box and will appear as plain text, as shown below:

  2. If you instead paste in the list of comma-delimited addresses, they will be recognized and will appear in individual boxes that can be removed one-by-one. Note that this will occur for all email addresses, WiscMail or other, regardless of whether they are valid addresses.

  3. Use the dropdown menu labelled Invite as Editor (this text will be different if you've changed the access level in the past) to change the access level of the collaborators you've entered. When you have entered everyone who should have access, click the Send button.
