Choose "Install in Production" or "Install in Sandbox" according to your convenience by clicking the "Get it now" button.

Allow all users entry.

Specify or generate a folder in your Box for Salesforce

Now, you can create a folder in Box where you can store all the information and files you want Salesforce to have access to.

Going through Box Files in Salesforce

Go back to your Salesforce account and select the "Accounts" tab from the list of tabs at the top to review your Box files there.

Go to the "Box" tab by clicking on the word "Your Company"

Click "All Files" and choose the "Your Company" folder from the Box file hierarchy to change this.

Use the Box tab to upload a file

Select "File" after clicking "Upload."

Click "Open" after selecting the file you wish to upload.

Return to your Box account and refresh your folder to see the newly uploaded file to verify that the sync is functioning properly.

Integrating a box into common objects
