New Box User Interface Coming July 1, 2021

Box is rolling out a new web user interface (UI) design to all Box users, effective on July 1st, 2021. The new web UI introduces an improved user experience that gives you the power to effortlessly organize, access, and work with your most important content. With the new web experience, a new organization feature called “Collections” will be made available to enable you to create and name private collections of content in your Box account, where you can intuitively organize files and folders that you own or share, and quickly find the content you need.
