Attach files from Box

Box makes it easy to securely store and share all of your files, including key documents, wireframes, or detailed mock-ups, from a single place. As you work on your product strategy, releases, and features, you will likely want to reference shared files without having to leave Aha!

With the Box integration, you can instantly access key documents when you need them and link them to your work in Aha! Even better, everyone can stay perfectly in sync because as updates are made to files in Box, Aha! is always linked to the latest.

Here is how it works.

Configure

All of the storage service integrations are managed on a per user basis. This means each Aha! user can log into their Aha! account and go to Settings -> Personal and enable the integration as shown below.

With the integration enabled, Box will be an option any time you click an Attach files link within Aha! This means you can associate files stored on Box to your Aha! Features, Releases, Initiatives and more. You can directly attach the Box file to Aha! as well as opt to open it within Box for editing purposes.

Once a document is linked from Box, any updates to the document within Box will automatically be reflected in Aha! This helps save time as you will not have to re-upload the file every time it changes.

Advanced security controls

While each user has the ability to connect to their own Box account, the Account Administrator in Aha! has the option to disable storage services if the organization has security controls in place prohibiting their use. This is managed through Settings -> Account -> Security and single sign-on.

It is also important to note that for security purposes this integration is not a two-way integration. You can link files shared in Box to Aha! but you cannot add data from Aha! to Box.

 

 

Whitelisting

Your company may have new Box applications disabled by default. If this is the case, you will receive a "Disabled by Administrator" error message when attempting to link your Aha! account to Box. A user with administrator access to Box will need to visit Admin Console -> Apps and whitelist the Aha! Box integration by searching for it under "Individual Application Controls" and setting to "Available"
