Participating in the Box Feed Beta Program

Box Feed uses machine learning to provide a constantly-updated personalized collection of content.  It identifies documents and files it deems most relevant to you based on the people and files you work with most, and automatically posts previews of them to your Box interface.

 

The Box Feed beta gives you the opportunity to be among the first to make use of this powerful new tool, while also contributing directly to Feed’s ongoing development and enhancement.

 

Before you can participate, you must sign the Box Master Beta Agreement (MBA).  This applies to all Box beta programs.  You only need to sign it once.  If you’re uncertain whether your organization already has a signed MBA on file with Box, please contact your Box Customer Success manager.

 

You also must sign an NDA.  For more information, see the Related Links section at the end of this article.

 

Finally, you are obliged to provide feedback to Box based on your experience using Feed.

 

When the Box Feed beta program ends – that is, when Feed becomes generally available – Box Feed will be included in the cost of Box enterprise accounts.  Should this ever change, we will notify customers well in advance.
