Do you use Box Sync? Be on the lookout for a software upgrade this month


Posted: 03/31/2014

Many Tulane faculty and staff use the Box file storage application for file storage and sharing, but do you also use Box Sync? Box Sync is a utility that allows you to synchronize a folder on your desktop with the files you store on Box. You can create, edit, and delete documents directly through the Box folder on your desktop using your native applications (such as Microsoft Word or Excel). All changes automatically sync back to your online Box account.

Upgrading to Box Sync 4.0

If you already use Box Sync, be on the lookout for an upgrade during the month of April. Current users will see a prompt to upgrade when logging in to the app. Technology Services cannot specify the exact date in April when users will see the prompt to upgrade.

If you want to start using Box Sync, download version 4.0:
