Box at Yale is a file storage workspace which enables people to collaborate and share information. It is a cloud-based file sharing and storage service and can be accessed through any device: desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. Once you set up Box at Yale, you’ll be able to access your files from anywhere with an Internet connection.
To access Box through your iPad, first go to the App Store and download Box for iPhone and iPad.
When you open the app, you should come to this start screen. If you have already registered a Box at Yale account, click on Login and then more login options.
When prompted, type in you Yale email address as your preferred account. This will take you to the Central Authentication Service login page. Login with your netID and password, and you will be directed automatically to the Box app.
To upload photos or movies from your iPad to Box, click on one of the cloud icons in the top right or bottom left corners of the page.
Click Choose Photos or Videos and you will be taken to your iPad’s photo and video albums. Tap each one you would like to upload to Box and then press Upload.
And there you have it! All of the photos or videos you selected will be automatically synced to your Box account, and can now be viewed from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Unfortunately, the Box app does not currently support uploading files other than photos or videos, such as word documents that are stored on your iPad, but alternatives that do have this functionality are the Google Drive app and Evernote.
