Click the links to learn more about Box types and other new features.


Various modules provide you with different insight into your data. As the terminology can vary from organization to organization, you can rename the modules to ensure their purpose is clear to everyone on your team.

In this section, you can use the toggle switches to specify which modules are active in the edited Box. Additionally, you can change the module names. 

Keep in mind:

  • A “Box type” contains the default settings applicable to multiple Boxes (all Boxes of a given type). Those settings are adjusted in Box type administration .
  • Box configuration refers to settings of a single, individual Box. They are dependent on the “Box type” settings. 

Security and access

  • Only a user with a minimum Box admin security role can access and manage the Box configuration.
  • To activate/deactivate or rename the modules go to Box configuration > General > Modules:

Deactivating modules

When you deactivate a module, all related configuration tabs as well as the module links will disappear. You can reactivate the module at any time without losing your data.

To activate or deactivate click the toggle switch in the 'Active' column:

Default module

You can set a default module for a Box type - this will be the default module in all newly created Boxes of a given type. Default module settings can be later adjusted for individual Boxes.

When you open a Box, this module will be automatically displayed. 

It is also positioned at the top of the list in the modules drop-down.
