Box: Restrict Access to a Folder to University of Minnesota Users

Sometimes a folder should only be accessible to other users within the University of Minnesota system. This article explains how to do this to a folder.

Note: Taking this action on a parent folder will automatically apply this setting to all sub-folders and any documents contained within any folder or sub-folder.
