Box integration

What is Box integration?

Box integration allows files uploaded to your form to be sent to a Box account.

In order to use this integration, you must have a Formsite account at the Pro 1 or higher service level and an active Box account. Use the instructions below to integrate with Box.

Formsite's Box settings

Your form's Box settings are controlled on your form's "Form Settings->Integrations->Box" page.

  • 1.

    Go to your form's "Form Settings->Integrations->Box" page.

  • 2.

    Click the "Get Authorization" button to authenticate with Box. You will be asked to log into your Box account if you are not already, and then click the "Authorize" button to return to Formsite.

  • 3.

    Optionally enter the name of a folder to store your files in. If the folder does not already exist, it will be created.

  • 4.

    Save the page.

  • Collecting Box results

    Once Box integration has been completed, your form is ready to accept results. When a visitor completes a submission to your form, any uploaded files will be sent to Box. If there is an existing file in Box with the same name as a new file, Box will replace the file.

    NOTE: The integration can only send new files to your Box, it cannot access or delete existing files.

    Tips and troubleshooting

    If for some reason a result was not submitted to Box, or the Box integration was not setup yet when the result was collected, you can resubmit it to Box by simply editing and saving the result at the "Results->Results Table" page.

    Sending large files to Box can take a long time. Sending more than 100 MB of files can sometimes cause the submission to "time out"; that is, the submission exceeds your browser's wait time and it gives up waiting for a response.

    If your Box account becomes full or exceeds its rate limit, the integration will fail.
