Client's Business Goals

The client already had Box integration with Salesforce which provided standard functionality, but it didn’t resolve the client’s problem.


If the salesforce admin needs to hyperlink a Box doc to their chatter file or personal library, they have to click the hyperlink to access it.

Difficult to upload files which is more than 4 MB as the Salesforce heap size is 6 MB and support to upload file is from 4MB-5MB at a time.

The customized box component doesn’t provide SSO features. It is difficult for the user if he needs to enter credentials once and later authenticate the box automatically.

Box maintains folder structure user-wise. But, the client’s requirement is to maintain the folder structure with the object relationship.

Box only provides a view for upload images similar to the gallery, but if the client wants to generate PDF from the selected pictures, there is no option available.

Our Solution

After understanding the challenges and requirements, we found that the box cloud storage lacked major functionality. So, we customized some of the functionalities to use Box with Salesforce.

Salesforce folders were mapped into 3 sections: accounts, their child object, and personal library (including chatter files, Profile Picture). Files uploaded on the salesforce get synced with the box in one of the 3 folders.

Box account is synced to the appropriate account, opportunity, and personal library in Salesforce. It allows users to search and download the document on their devices on the go.

Visualforce component is created, which uses BOX SDK and provides SSO with the customized Visualforce component.

Enables to upload bulk files from Visualforce page

Added customized component which allowed to upload any type of document/file

Customize file naming convention based on selected type of document

Created one more component which is placed in every related object which provides the view of the folder hierarchy.

Created a page that displays all the accounts on that page. Users can select any number of accounts to generate a PDF which will display the account’s profile picture directly from BOX.
