|Using social groups / Groups with external file storage|
If your administrator has connected your community with a Box.com file store, you can take advantage of file storage and synchronization with Box for groups where this is enabled.
When a user uploads a document, it's stored in Box instead of the regularly configured binary storage location. Files are automatically synchronized in both directions, and so are comments and replies, so that users can interact from either the Jive side or the Box side.
To take full advantage of the linkage, users should join the Box-linked group. This allows users to interact with Box-linked content under their own user accounts and synchronize comments correctly to the Box side. Otherwise, their interactions will be posted by a system user called the Jive Integration User, and their comments will not be visible on the Box side.
Files can be modified on the Box side by any user who has a Jive account and rights to the group-linked folder in Box. In addition, file comments made in Box are synchronized and displayed in the Jive group.
