How to Upload Files via Box Integration
Navigate to the Uploads tab in your project
Click + Create A New
Choose Cloud Upload from the drop-down menu
Choose Import from Box
From here, there are three simple steps to uploading data directly from your Box account:
Select files to upload; you will first be prompted to log in to your Box account
Assign a custodian to the upload
Name your upload (optional)
Once you've completed these steps, click Start Upload at the bottom of the upload form. A pop-up window will appear prompting you to Grant access to Box. Once you've granted access, your upload will begin!

Viewing Box Metadata
We make an effort to capture existing metadata from Box wherever possible. Some metadata, such as the file name, will be reflected directly in Logikcull's interface.
Any metadata that is not displayed in the Document Info panel can be found by selecting the Metadata icon in the top toolbar. You can view all available document metadata in the Details tab of the metadata modal:
Available Box Metadata Fields:
What metadata is not available for export via Box integration?
Tags created in Box will not appear in the metadata for the data uploaded to Logikcull via cloud upload.
Searching Box Metadata Fields
Box integrations capture metadata with the prefix box_fields, so if you wanted to search for a specific Box comment for example, you would use the following syntax:
Disconnecting the Integration
If you need to disconnect an existing Box integration, navigate to your user profile by clicking on your avatar in the left-hand navigation menu.
On your Profile Settings page, select Integrations from the navigation list, or scroll to the bottom of the page to see a list of all associated integrations.
Simply click the Disconnect button for the Box integration to disconnect. You can always reconnect the integration again in the future if you'd like.
Use Box and Logikcull Together as an FTP Alternative
For example, if you need to collect data from someone but would rather not invite them into your Logikcull project, have them upload the data to a Box account instead.
Once uploaded to Box, you (as the administrator) can easily import the data into Logikcull using the Cloud upload option. This is incredibly helpful when dealing with long-distance data collections or whenever your own FTP system can’t handle the volume of data.
