What is Box and what does the Box integration do?
Box is an enterprise content management platform that solves simple and complex challenges, from sharing and accessing files on mobile devices to sophisticated business processes like data governance and retention.
Enterprise content management (ECM) is the process and method of storing, archiving, and retrieving documents within an enterprise-level company or a similarly large organization. With an ECM platform, documents and other files are digitized, centralized, and secured. This minimizes productivity loss related to time spent searching for files, functions as a document backup system, and ensures paper trail is always available.
The Box integration for Litmos can be used by Administrators to link content from Box into a course as a new course module. This function allows files and folders that are stored and viewed on Box, to automatically update the module content that is linked into Litmos from Box.

The Box integration can be enabled by performing the steps below:
- Log into Litmos as an Account Owner.
