ThunderCloud Storage Group Shares Now Available

Effective Date: August 31, 2016

ThunderCloud Storage group shares, powered by Box, are now available. A group share is a collaborative shared folder that has all the features available in Box but belongs to a department or group rather than an individual.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Set and customize your own permissions for who has access to data stored in your group share
  • Share files with other departments and organizations, even if they're not part of the Wheaton College
  • Use built-in tools like version management & collaborative editing
  • Files in a group share stay with the department, even if the person who originally created the documents leaves Wheaton
  • Unlimited storage capacity

Impact on College Community

ThunderCloud Storage group shares can be a complete replacement for your department's existing network shared drive and are available to any department that can benefit from the features listed above.
