Box Team Folders

The purpose of Team Folders is to allow for business continuity when a user’s affiliation with UIC expires. Typically when a user’s affiliation with UIC expires all folders and files they own become unavailable to all collaborators.


  • Every Team Folder is appointed a steward as a primary contact and co-stewards as secondary contacts. If you add a UIC co-owner to a Team Folder they will automatically become a co-steward in our system.
  • Technology Solutions will automatically contact all co-stewards prior to the primary steward’s affiliation expiration date and ask one of them to become the new primary steward. Note: our system does not allow primary or co-stewardship to be held by a non-UIC user, but you can still make them a co-owner of a Team Folder.
  • Note that it is not possible to determine the primary steward of a Team Folder from within Box – that information is stored internally by Technology Solutions.


A Box team folder is not intended to be used to store HIPAA data or other PHI.  Please see the following link for information about Protecting PHI with Box Health Data Folders.
