Sharing with a Custom Links

Custom links can be used to share a file or contents of a folder with a more memorable address than the shared links created by default.

Creating a Custom Link

  1. Locate the folder or file you want to share (you must be the owner of the folder or file). Click on the button with the downward arrow and click ShareShare from Dropdown
  2. A pop up box will appear. Under the Advanced settings there is an option for Set Custom URL. Enter the text field with your custom name and then click the check mark.Custom link text

The custom link will be in the format https://nevada.box.com/mycustomlink

It is not recommended to use a Custom URL when sharing sensitive information. By default, shared links are deliberately complex to prevent anyone from successfully guessing the location of a shared file or folder.
