Common Questions

To use Box in your flow, you will first need to connect Box to Built.io Flow Express. 

To do this, select any Box event from the list of actions in the ‘Select an Action’ page. Now the ‘Connect’ step requires you to connect Built.io Flow Express to your Box account. To do this, click the '+ Add a New Account' button.

You should then get a pop up window from Box asking you to log in to authorize the connection between your Box account and Built.io Flow Express.
