Linking to files in Box

Files stored at Box can be linked directly to your Insightly records from the Files section on the Related subtab. This section is available in contacts, organizations, opportunities, and projects.


Your Box files are not copied or moved to Insightly, so access is determined by your Box permissions settings. If you have granted an Insightly user permission to view a file in Box, they'll be able to open the file from Insightly.
