M+Box Help


Box provides an excellent collection of documentation:


For Users with Existing Box Accounts

I'm using Box with an @umich.edu email address

If you currently have a Box account using your @umich.edu email address, you will not be able to create a new M+Box account in the University domain.

WARNING: Do not delete your personal @umich.edu Box account in order to create an M+Box account. Users who delete @umich.edu personal accounts without first changing the email address will be unable to create an M+Box account following the normal signup process. If you have deleted your account, please contact the ITS Service Center for assistance.

Recommended: CONVERT your personal account into a M+Box account

  1. Contact the ITS Service Center to have your personal account invited into the UMICH M+Box enterprise. Note: An invitation will be sent to your email address.
  2. Accept the invitation to complete the process.

Converting your M+Box account allows you to maintain any collaborations you have and give you the benefits of M+Box, which will soon include unlimited storage.

If you prefer to KEEP your personal account

  1. Change the email address attached to your personal account to a non-umich account
  2. Then, sign up for an M+Box account.
  3. You now have 2 accounts, one M+Box account, and one personal account at a non-umich.edu address.

I'm using Box with a personal email address

Your personal account will not be impacted. However, you must set up a M+Box account to have access to the M+Box enterprise account features.
