  1. Approval Task With Box Relay Enhancements

    When allocating approval tasks in Box Relay, users are able to uncheck the "Invite the person in charge as a viewer" function.
    In addition, if "Invite users as viewers" is enabled, and the members in charge have been granted permission as members of a group, which prevent them from being invited to the file as viewers.

  2. Transfer Workflow Ownership (not sending it as a template but as a workflow)

    Recently the workflow ownership transfer has been released.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/4402945686291-Transferring-Your-Workflow-to-Another-User

    However, this is to make the template of the workflow that is needed to be transferred.

    There is a need to transfer the actual workflow for below reasons:

    1. the new owner needs to check the past workflow activity but with the template it is not possible
    2. since it is a template, the new owner still needs to make the workflow

    Thank you for your consideration.

  3. File request - Allow only Manage Users from an EID to upload via File Request

    In file request, have the ability to state that only a managed user in the EID or an external user that has been invited to the folder can upload, no one else. By doing this, it prevents a file request link from being randomly guessed or found on the internet AND prevents a random user from uploading bad or malware/virus infected content. The current state of requiring the user to login is too generic and doesn't meet the requirement of keeping the file request locked down. Using the collaboration role for upload is not what is needed. The File Request…

  4. Make it possible to re-order outcomes in a flow

    Currently it is impossible to re-order outcomes in a flow. This makes it very hard to implement changes and maintain workflows. It would be very handy to be able to change the order of outcomes in a flow the same way it is possible to change order of flows in a workflow.

  5. Relay:Enable/disable the "Invite assignees as Viewers/Editors" option

    A new feature has been added to Relay called "Invite assignees as Virwers/Editors".
    Perhaps, it is possible that, due to a mistake, users who should not be collaborating are automatically collaborated with.
    However, in the current specification, the checkbox for this feature cannot be changed from enabled.

    We would like the checkbox to be able to be unchecked optionally.

    誤操作により、本来権限を付与されるべきではないユーザーがコラボレートされてしまう可能性があるため、
    チェックボックスのチェックを任意で外せるようにしてほしい。

  6. File Request Branding EID wide.

    Custom branding for file request feature. Ability to apply one custom branding template to the entire EID so that the branding is consistent across the entire enterprise.

  7. Ability to comment on Box Relay approval tasks

    Currently, there is no function to enter comments when executing approval tasks using Box Relay.
    We are currently using email and the Mention function, but this is inconvenient, so we would like to have the ability to enter comments at the time of approval or rejection.
    Having a comment when approving or rejecting a task will help us communicate with users, so we would appreciate it if you could add this as a feature.


    現在Box Relayを利用した承認タスク実施時に、コメントを記載する機能がありません。
    メールやメンション機能を現在は利用しておりますが、不便なため、承認時または却下時にコメントを入力する機能が欲しいです。
    承認時や却下時にコメントがあることで、ユーザーへの意思疎通ができますので、機能として追加をいただけますと幸いです。

  8. API for "CRUD" for Box Relay and Box Relay Lite

    We have created over a hundred of Relay workflows and have currently faced a difficulty in adjusting all rules when our orgnization is changed. We would like to have a set of APIs for Relay for creation, reference, update and delete operations (so called CRUD).

    Also we would like to have an way to update folder ID(s) on existing workflows. It would help so much especially when annual org change happens.

  9. Relay:Users who have already been invited in a group will not be invited with "Invite assignees as Viewers/Editors"

    [Background]
    A new feature has been added to Relay called "Invite assignees as Virwers/Editors".
    "Invite assignees as Virwers/Editors" are sent to users who have already been invited in the group.
    This is confusing because additional invitations are carried out to users who have already been invited.
    Furthermore, operationally, this requires the collaboration to be removed from the relevant file each time.
    *As a company rule, we are not allowed to collaborate with individuals individually, except in groups to which they have been previously invited by Admin.

    [Request]
    Users who have already been invited to a group should not be invited.

  10. Be able to specify a document or a shared link in “Send Notification” outcome

    It would be convenient if the “Send Notification” outcome had an option to specify a document or a shared link in the notification body.

    Right now it is only possible to input plain text.

  11. Add "Updated/Changed" File Event as a Trigger

    Add "Updated/Changed" File Event as a Trigger.

    Triggering a Relay on a specific file when it has been updated directly or updated with an upload, maintaining file history.

    The current workaround is to create a "New upload" Trigger, then the file needs to be Deleted and create/uploaded from new, thus requiring 2 steps and losing file history.

  12. Template for publishing to specific groups in Box Relay

    The only templates in Relay are company templates and My Templates.
    Our company has templates that we want to publish for each group, so we would like you to provide the ability to publish templates to groups.
    (In Japanese)
    Relayのテンプレートは、会社のテンプレートとマイテンプレートしかありません。
    我々の企業ではグループごとに公開したいテンプレートが存在するため、テンプレートのグループ公開機能を提供してほしい。

  13. <Ability to set date and time variables for files/folders in Box Relay.>

    When multiple folders/files with the same name are created (newly created/copied) on the same day using Box Relay's folder/file actions, the current specification makes it impossible to determine which item is the latest.
    Please insert a date/time variable such as "yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss" in the item name so that we can know when the folder/file was created.

    <BoxRelayのファイル/フォルダに日付と時刻の変数を設定する機能>
    Box Relayのフォルダアクション/ファイルアクションで同じ日に複数の同一名称のフォルダ/ファイルが生成(新規作成/コピー)された場合、現状の仕様ではどのアイテムが最新のものか判断がつかない。
    いつ生成されたフォルダ/ファイルかわかるように、アイテム名称に「yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss」のような日時変数を挿入してほしい。

  14. Allow groups to be added as collaborators in Relay “Add Collaborator” outcome

    Would be great to be able to add a group of collaborators “Add Collaborator” outcome. Right now only single users are accepted as input.

  15. Create a Box group/alias or ability to select a different name to replace the workflow owner’s name.

    I’ve created several Relay workflows across the business and the issue I found is that people are reaching out to me because my name is tied to a task that is assigned to them. Often times, I do not have any context to the workflow so it results in me having to reach out to the person who started/uploaded the document. We want to avoid approvers having to reach out to the workflow owner vs. the actual owner of the program. This process would not be sustainable if it were rolled out to a larger company.

    Currently Example: Hayley creates…

  16. Add option to cancel workflow

    Currently there is only delete option to stop the workflow.
    Workflows are stalled or stacked as in progress sometimes. We want to assign similar task manually or re-assign the same task to complete the workflow in time.
    But it will cause duplicated tasks assigned unexpectedly or file operation (move or copy etc.) is executed twice. This is very confusing.
    So we want to cancel the existing workflow before manual workaround.

  17. Notifications from Box Relay aren't very useful without linking back to the file or folder

    Relay is a great tool - but the Notifications aren't very useful. There is no way to link to the actual file or folder that is involved, so the user gets a very nebulous notification that is basically meaningless. Instead of being helpful, it could actually cause confusion for the user, if there are multiple activities happening at the same time.

    Please update this functionality! Thanks!

  19. Relay: Extend Collaboration as an action

    I would like to have "Extend Collaboration" as an option of "Action" in Relay.
    This is useful when a certain project is longer than the expiration set in the whole account.
    When it is known the finish date for that project, I would like to automatically extend the expiry date beforehand using Relay.

  20. Using Box Relay on Mobile

    Box Relay's [manually initiated] workflow does not currently support mobile.
    We would like Box Relay to be able to use mobile even more effectively.

    (In Japanese)
    Box Relayの [手動で開始] ワークフローは、現在モバイルに対応していません。
    モバイルを更に効果的に活用するためにBox Relayを利用できるようにしてほしい。
