An Enhanced User Experience Arrives May 1

Friday, April 7, 2017 - 15:51


An improved, more personalized user experience is coming to on May 1 for University students, faculty, and staff. The new interface features:  

  • A clearer layout and simpler navigation that enables you to access your most recently used files with one click. You can also view more quickly who is accessing and editing content.
  • An improved, faster search that also allows you to find your work without even typing. With a few clicks, you can find what you are looking for by selecting owners, last date edited, and file type.
  • The ability to switch between views (list view for quick scans or thumbnail view for rich previews). You can also now watch HD and 360* Video right from Box. 

You can preview the new user experience today at To switch back to the previous interface, click the question mark icon in the upper right-hand corner of the page and select “Need to switch back to the old Box user experience?”

Beginning May 1, the new Box user experience will become the standard interface for and the option to revert to the old experience will no longer be available. Additional help resources are available to help familiarize you with the new interface:
