How to add Box to Microsoft Teams

  1. Ensure you are the owner of the Microsoft Team. If you need a Team, please request one here.
  2. From your Teams application, in the lefthand navigation click Apps.
  3. Search for Box.
  4. Click either:
    • Add to a Team
    • Add to a Chat
  5. Locate the Team or Chat to which you want to add the app.  Then click Set up a bot.
  6. When the app is installed, Team members have access to the Box integration.

Important -- To Avoid Confusion

When Box displays in your Apps search, do not click Open.  Instead, click the adjacent down arrow and then click add Box to a Team.  When Box is added to a Team, it begins working automatically for Team chats.  

After you add Box to a Team, do not click Setup. Instead, click the adjacent down arrow and then click Set up a bot.  After a brief delay, the Box files tab displays at the top of the Teams interface.  

For more information, please see the Box support article: Using Box for Teams.
