1. Explore Existing Applications

Step one is to check our integrations list for your existing apps – just visit This page shows which programs can hook up to Box, some of which you might already be using.

Next, you can enable the apps your users need. To do so:

  • Click Admin Console in the gray header bar at the top of the page
  • Mouse over Admin Settings in the blue header bar, then clickEnterprise/Business Settings
  • Switch to the Apps tab

If there’s an app you want every user to be able to access, choose Add By Default. If you need to break the direct link between an app and your users’ Box accounts, click the Disable button. Want apps to be available (but not turned on by default)? No problem – just choose Available.

You can learn more about our partner integrations here.

2. Incorporate Active Directory

For added security, you can also set up a Single Sign-On (SSO) to Box using your business’ SAML-based Active Directory system. This allows users already logged in to your network with AD credentials to open Box from a customized login page without a separate password. If you need assistance, just contact your account executive.

3. Integrate With Your Applications

Once you decide which applications you want to use, it’s time to install them and integrate with your Box account.

4. Explore Custom Applications

With Box’s open API, the sky’s the limit for custom applications – if your organization is interested in developing your own apps, visit for more information.


Once you’ve decided which integrations to use and tested them out, it’s time to move on to the next stage.
