You can assign the people in your organization to any Zone your company has purchased. When you assign people to a Zone, their existing files migrate over, and any new files and folders they create within their own root folder are mapped to the assigned Zone. If they create a file within someone else's root folder, that file is mapped to the storage policy of the owner of the file.
To assign a Zone to a managed user:
- Edit a managed user, as in Configuring and Editing Users.
- In the User Details section, select a zone in Data Residency Zone. See Users & Groups Settings for details.
- Click Save.
If you do not manually assign someone to a Zone, Box automatically assigns that person to your organization's default Zone.
