Best Practices for Internal Collaboration

Your JHBox account uses JHEDID@JH.EDU as your primary email account. All users that have activated their account will appear by name in the search box when inviting collaborators. If a user has not yet activated their account, they will not be visible when searching for collaborators. We recommend that you encourage potential collaborators to enable their JHBox account prior to inviting them to collaborate.

Enabling your JHBox Account

  1. Log into the myJH Portal, http://my.jh.edu with your JHED ID and password
  2. Go to the Cloud appls quick link and select JHBox
  3. Once you have accepted the Terms of Service, you can begin using JHBox

Inviting Collaborators
