To sync multiple Box accounts with corresponding Google Drive accounts you need to create two-way sync pairs like this:
Box (firstname.lastname@example.org) <-> Google Drive (email@example.com) Box (firstname.lastname@example.org) <-> Google Drive (email@example.com) Box (firstname.lastname@example.org) <-> Google Drive (email@example.com) ...
The above sync pairs will ensure that each user’s Box account are the exact mirror of that user’s Google Drive account. All files and folders data will be transferred and it will also be kept in sync.
cloudHQ will also keep in sync all sharing information and permissions between Box to Google Drive.
Here are step-by-step instructions for how to set up the above sync pairs.
