Description: 

Information Services (IS) is implementing Box, a cloud-based file-sharing service, to provide the OSU community with the ability to share information from any device or location. Box also provides robust protection for institutional information, ensures regulatory compliance, and offers collaborative functionality that is scalable to meet changing needs.

The Box Implementation Project supports IS strategic goals of simplification and work and learn from anywhere and any device for students, faculty, and staff. Finally, this project lays the foundation for the upcoming  Work@OregonState initiative. 

Status Summary: 

Box Groups via Grouper was undergoing pre-release testing when Box released a new version of Groups with changed configuration options on May 1.  Refactoring is currently occuring and a new timeline is being developed.  We are currently awaiting updated API information and documentation from Box, as well as clarifications regarding the new configuration options.  If information is slow from Box, this item may slip past the planned Spring implementation timeline.
