THINGS TO CONSIDER

  • box Integration is available to all ConstructionOnline Pro Users.
  • Files/Photos will not be automatically shared between ConstructionOnline & box.

    • Editing and/or deleting Files/Photos in ConstructionOnline that were uploaded from box  will have no effect on the original File/Photo stored in box.
