Notice: Moodle Docs will be switched to read-only mode starting on Tuesday 17 October 14:00 UTC for server maintenance. The estimated read-only period should not take more than 24 hours.

Enabling the Box portfolio

In order to use the Box portfolio, your Moodle site must use HTTPS. In addition, an administrator must obtain a Box client ID and secret, as described in Box APIv1 migration. The client ID and secret can then be used to configure all Box plugins.

  1. Go to Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Portfolios > Manage Portfolios
  2. Activate the Box.net portfolio by selecting 'Enabled and visible' in the dropdown menu
  3. Configure each portfolio by entering the client ID and secret
  4. Save changes

Sending/"pushing" your files to Box

  • You can export items such as assignments, chat and forum posts to enabled portfolios such as Box. Here is an example with a forum post:
  • At the bottom of your completed forum post are the words "export to portfolio".

  • Click the words "export to portfolio" and then select from the dropdown Box.net (If it is the only portfolio enabled, it will be the only choice!)
  • On the next screen, choose your sharing options and which folder to export to:

  • Click to confirm the export:

  • Click "Continue". If you haven't done this before you will be prompted to log in to your account. Agree and log in.
  • The "export complete" message will appear. Clicking "continue" will take you to Box if you wish.
