DSAbox File Sharing for School Construction Projects
DSAbox allows the DSA to set folder permissions to document folders, versioning control, 24/7 mobile and desktop access, and internal enterprise reporting for all documents submitted.
DSAbox is a secure cloud based collaborative solution initiated by the Division of the State Architect (DSA) to allow greater transparency and communication between DSA field engineers and designated stakeholders. DSAbox allows the DSA to set folder permissions to document folders, versioning control, 24/7 mobile and desktop access, and internal enterprise reporting for all documents submitted.
If you are authorized to access DSAbox, you will receive an invitation via email from Box.com indicating that you are being invited to share or collaborate on a file or folder that relates to a specific school construction project. Please check your email “junk folder,” as your spam filter may not recognize the sender of the initial invitation. To receive access, you must be a Design Professional (Architect/Engineer), Client (School District), Project Inspector, Laboratory Engineer, or a Contractor on a specific DSA project application.
When you receive the email invitation, select “Accept Invitation.” This will direct you to https://dsa-box.box.com where you will be prompted to create a user name and password. You must set up your own Box.com account (email/username is your email address; password must be eight characters and must contain two numbers). Please write your password down for future reference. Once you have set up your account, the application displays a list of the folders/files you have permission to share.
For step-by-step instructions see the DSAbox External Library.
