Using the Box Upload widget, you can allow people to upload files into a specific folder within your account. This feature is useful when your business needs will require customers or associates to send any type of file without requiring them to log in or to create a Box account.


To create an Upload Widget

  • Right-click any folder you own (or click the ellipses (...) to open the More Options menu).
  • Under More Actions, click Upload Embed Widget.
  • In the window that appears, you can add a title that will appear at the top of the widget, as well as instructions for uploaders.
  • You can also set whether users will need to enter an email address before uploading files, or whether they will be able to leave a description of the file they are uploading.

  • Copy and paste the generated code into any website or posting page that supports JavaScript code and your widget will be published for the world to access. As new files or folders are uploaded, you will be able to see and access these files while viewing the folder within your Box account.


People accessing your widget will not be able to view or access the contents of your folder. They will only see a widget like the one shown below:
