Box.BIC: How to share files/folders with guest users (outside the BIC/McGill)

Box.BIC provides a feature that can be used to share content with guest users (users that don’t have a Box.BIC account).

This feature will create a guest account that won’t have any space available and will only be able to access the resource that was shared with them.

To create a Box.BIC guest account:

  • Use the “Share” icon

  • Enter the email address of the guest user in the “Share with users, groups or remote users…” box

  • Select the “Add Guest” option

Box.BIC will send an email message with further instructions that will enable the guest user to access the shared resource.
