This document describes the auto-enrollment process for UW-Madison affiliates attempting to create a personal Box account.
The auto-enrollment process explained below is intended to help UW-Madison affiliates set up accounts that will be covered under the UW-Madison Enterprise Box license.
Auto-enrollment begins when a UW-Madison affiliate attempts to register a personal account through box.com using an email address ending in *wisc.edu.
Upon submitting your information, you will be redirected to https://uwmadison.box.com, where you should click the Continue button. Following this, you will be prompted to log in with your NetID and password.
Upon logging in, one of three scenarios will take place:
- If you had never previously created a UW-Madison Box account for your firstname.lastname@example.org address, one will automatically be created for you.
- If you do currently have an account set up for your email@example.com address, you will be logged into that account.
- If you are not eligible for a UW-Madison Box account you will see: Access Denied: You are not eligible for the service requested.
It is recommended that you associate any other personal UW-Madison email addresses (e.g. a firstname.lastname@example.org address) as an alias for your account; this allows your contacts to share items with you using either address.
For information on linking another email to your UW-Madison Box account, please see: UW-Madison Box - Linking Alternate Addresses.
