Upload embed widget

I'm trying to embed an upload widget to my site. When I right click on the destination folder, I don't get an option for "upload embed widget", only "embed widget", which isn't what I'm looking for. The Box tutorial article shows a right-click menu different than the one I receive when I right-click. Any idea where I could find this option? Thank you.

@tmas33,

 

Have you looked under the ...More Actions submenu of the folder? What is your permission level on the folder?

Re: Upload embed widget

Thank you. I'm the sole owner of this account so I'm assuming that I have full permission by default, right?

 

When I click on "more actions", I only receive:

Trash

Sync

Rename

Embed Widget

Add or Edit Tags 

 

In the Box tutorial article, they show "Upload Embed Widget" as the last option. I don't get that.

Here's the article I'm referring to ...

Thank you very much.

Could it be that this is a Business feature? If so, they definitely don't make it clear.

Re: Upload embed widget

I just went to upgrade and it's forcing me to pay for 3 users @ $15/month or $180/year - which is way more than I need. I was willing to pay $5/month for myself to have this feature. Doesn't really make any sense. Is there no other way of having access to this feature? That's the only reason I even opened my account. Otherwise, I have no use for this account. Thanks.

Thank you for all your help @katrinaa

I just spoke with them and the only way to receive this feature is to pay for at least 3 users.

Makes absolutely no sense. They just lost a customer.

If anyone else is reading this, Dropbox has a "file request folder" option that could pretty much do the same thing but instead of posting a widget, you just give out a link. 

Thanks anyway, Box. Sayonara.
