Q. How do I change my personal Box account to a UIS Box account?
A. Change the associated email of your existing Box account to a personal email address (for example, gmail or yahoo). To do so, from the My Account menu, choose Edit/View Profile. Then, save all files you want transferred to your UIS Box account to your Desktop. Log into UIS’ Box (see directions above) and upload the files from your Desktop to your UIS Box account.
