How do I track versions of files?
You can track the versions of documents in Box natively, so there is no need to ‘save as’ and create tons of different versions of the same file. As you create new versions, Box will append a version number to the file, and you can roll back to a previous version if you make any mistakes. This also enables you to make sure you are working on the latest version of a file.

How should I name files?
Use Box’s robust search engine to search for the item name, and then sort the results by date.

Can I access content when I am travelling?
Absolutely. Install Box Mobile for your preferred device, or navigate to www.m.box.com. If you anticipate working offline for an extended period of time you can favorite a folder for offline access in the Box Mobile app that allows you to store a local copy of the content on your mobile device. When combined with a strategy for Box Sync, you can ensure that you always have access to your content.

What other forms of advanced search does Box support?

You can do all of this to trim results using Full Text Search in Box.
["phrase search"] – finds the exact phrase
[word word] -- finds files that contain both these words, in any order.
[full OR text] -- finds files that contain either of these two (or more) words
[this -that] -- finds files with "this" but not "that"

[air*] -- finds "air", "airplane", "airplanes," etc.

After you complete your search, you can add filters to your results including:

  • Home Folder
  • File Type
  • Owner
  • Date
  • Content Type
  • Size
