Overall Satisfaction with Box

We currently utilize Box across the whole organization. Box has been a gamechanger. We use Box to share documents within our organization, share documents outside the organization and organize documents in folders/files on their platform. Box guarantees the security and privacy of all documents and provides a way to sync all documents from your computer to their secure platform (Box Sync).
  • Seamlessly share documents.
  • User friendly.
  • Great platform to easily organize all your documents.
  • When creating a Link for your folder (so anyone can view the documents when they have the link), it would be great to provide a password option. So anyone with the link can access the folder, however, they'd also need to provide a password. An extra layer of security on that feature would be awesome.
  • Allowing the 'Move or Copy' option when highlighting multiple documents in one folder.
  • Providing an option on Box Notes, where a Box checked as complete moves to the bottom (Similar to Google Keep). -Having this be optional would be essential, as there are some lists where you need the completed line item to remain in the same place and not move to the bottom.
  • Box has been an only positive experience. It provides a seamless way for me and my team to collaborate on documents in such a way where we're not sending the document back/forth via email. It's a huge timesaver.
  • Box reduces the risk of sharing a sensitive document to the wrong person via email.
  • Box has provided a platform where my team can share notes in meetings - this has helped streamline and organize our meetings. Our meetings are more productive and actionable.

Box works just as well as, if not better than Google Drive and Google Keep.

Box Notes is much easier to use than OneNote. OneNote is great if you just need to make your own notes - but sharing notes in OneNote is a pain. Box Notes is SO easy to use - we use it to take notes in all our meetings, being able to collaborate on notes has been a gamechanger for my team.
Box is great for document sharing, collaboration and overall document organization. Box is great if you need a secure place to keep documents. Box Notes are extremely helpful - my employee and I have multiple Box notes sections where we keep all our notes for reoccurring meetings.

Box is less appropriate if you're looking for a place to chat/comment about documents. Box is less appropriate if you're looking for a Task Management platform.
