Embedding a Box Folder in a Page


This guide will walk you through the process of embedding a document from your Box account on a Confluence page.

Navigating Through Folders

If the folder you shared is itself a nested folder, the folder that it is contained in will not be shown in the breadcrumb trail. This is to retain privacy.

The folder breadcrumb trail will only appear if the folder you share has nested folders and the user navigates into them.

If you have more folders within the Box folder you shared, a user may navigate through them by clicking on the folder icons.

A folder breadcrumb trail will be shown at the top of the file list which you can also use to navigate back up through the folders.
