  1. Error notification about Relay Workflow

    Currently there is no way to know whether the relay workflow has failed or not.
    So when there is an error in a workflow, I would like to have admins and or the workflow owners to receive a notification to inform about the error.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    We definitely want to address this use case (new owner sees past workflow activity) but do not have plans to address it in the near term. We will update when we have a firmer idea of when this can be tackled.

  5. Relay: Involve external Users to a manual workflow as "not-owner" of the folder/file

    Hi,

    i discribe a situation:
    The Admin is the owner of all folders/files, directors has co-owner-rights and all employees are editors. It is similarly discribed in "Folder Structure Best Practices" under "Business Unit Drive"
    Now we invite some external users... not only the owner can invite them.
    Then we create some relays for specific folder, especially some manual ones, assign a task and set the Assignee to "Specify at startup"...not only the owner can do this.
    Last but not least we start the manual workflow and choose as Assignee an external user... but wait...ONLY the owner of the folder (1…

  6. Request to add a function that can delete the classification in Box Relay

    <Request to add a function that can delete the classification in Box Relay>
    We can change the Box shield classification in Box Relay, but we cannot delete the classification.
    The classification maintains the set classification even if we move or copy it, but in some cases we may want to change to the destination classification or delete the classification.
    Therefore, I would like you to add a function that can delete the classification.

    <Box Relayで分類を削除できる機能を追加して欲しい>
    現在、Box RelayでBox shieldの分類を変更することはできますが、分類を削除することは出来ません。
    分類は、移動・コピーを行っても設定されている分類を維持しますが、ケースによっては移動先の分類に変更および、分類を削除したい場合があります。
    そこで、分類を削除できる機能を追加して欲しい。

  7. Ability to add reminder notification function for folders and files

    I want you to apply the remind notification function for folders and files

    Currently Box Relay cannot send reminders for folders and files.
    I want you to apply the function to send notifications with a custom date and interval for each folder and file.
    With this function, it is possible to prevent oversight of work that has a deadline, and it is possible to carry out work efficiently.

    フォルダやファイルに対してのリマインド通知機能を適用して欲しい

    現在BoxRelayではフォルダやファイルに対してリマインド通知を送信することができません。
    フォルダ、ファイルごとにカスタムした日付と間隔で通知を送信する機能を適用して欲しいです。
    この機能により期日のある作業の見落としを防ぐことが出来て、効率的に業務をおこなうことが可能となります。

  8. 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…

  9. Create automated Relay against multiple folders

    Many times, there is a single automated workflow, e.g. from a file action or folder event, that actually applies across different folders in the structure.

    Today, we can only select one folder for the workflow and therefore have to duplicate the workflow multiple times if we want it to work in different places. Then, if the workflows needs updating, then it has to be done in multiple places, which isn't the best place use of time.

    It would be great if, in the workflow builder, if you can select more than folder for where the workflow should listen for the…

  10. Box Relay: Enable API's so that I can re-assign workflows and/or task ownership to another person

    Box Relay: Enable API's so that I can re-assign workflows and/or task ownership to another person at scale.

    E.g. if someone is on holiday, sick, or leaves the company, we want to use API's to group together all of their existing workflows and/or tasks, and transfer those to a new person.

  11. Box Relay: Please enable the ability to group all owned workflows and/or assigned tasks from one person, and transfer them to a new person.

    Box Relay: Please enable the ability to group all owned workflows and/or assigned tasks from one person, and transfer that group of workflows and/or tasks to a different person.

    Today, I can transfer ownership of a single workflow or re-assign a single task from one person to another, but if someone goes on vacation, is sick, or leaves the company and they own multiple workflows or have multiple tasks assigned to them, then today we cannot group these together and transfer them all at once. Instead, we have to transfer workflow ownership and re-assign tasks one-by-one-by-one-by-one-by-one......

  12. Ability to include the name of the triggered file in the subject line when sending Relay notifications

    We would like to be able to include the name of the triggered file in the subject line when sending Relay notifications.
    We want to be able to easily check which file the notification is for when the user who received the notification receives the notification email.

  13. Enable ability to customize the notification that is triggered during a Box Relay workflow

    Enable ability to customize the notification that is triggered during a Box Relay workflow.

    E.g. if an approval task is approved, I want to notify whoever submitted the content for approval AND potentially other relevant parties that their submission was approved, but I also want to potentially customize the notification (e.g. it was approved for x, y, and z reasons).

    E.g. if an approval task is denied, I want to notify whoever submitted the content for approval AND potentially other relevant parties that their submission was denied, but I also want to potentially customize the notification (e.g. it was denied…

  14. Signature logs should also be able to be specified as a trigger condition for Box Relay

    Box Relay and Box Sign integration has been released, allowing for automation on signed files.
    The current specifications do not allow automated processing targeting signature logs.
    In our case, we would like to move not only the signed file but also the signature log to an arbitrary folder.
    Therefore, we request that the signature log can also be specified as a trigger condition.

    <署名ログもBox Relayのトリガー条件として指定できるようにしてほしい>
    Box RelayとBox Signの連携がリリースされ、署名されたファイルに対する自動化を行うことができるようになりましたが、
    署名ログを対象とした自動化処理が現在の仕様では行うことが出来ません。
    私たちが利用したいケースでは、署名したファイルだけでなく、署名ログも任意のフォルダに移動したいと考えております。
    そのため、署名ログもトリガー条件として指定できるようにリクエストします。

  16. 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。

  17. Prompt for Metadata in Workflow

    It would be good to allow users to be prompted for the metadata values when the workflow triggers, instead of requiring the user to prefill them in the workflow template. A simple pop-up box with the field name and value input would suffice. Much like the existing prompt in the workflow, but automatically displayed based on the trigger.

  18. Relay admin should allow editing of relay flows

    Users are confused when going into relay on the Admin dashboard vs. relay on the main toolbar in the user experience. Users should be able to edit relay flows when in the admin dashboard, or there should be clearer messages to users why they can't edit a relay flow in the admin. It leads users to create new workflows because they don't know where to edit the files.

  19. 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.

  20. Box sign automation with relay

    After a Box Signer completes a document(i.e NDA), using relay having automation to add that signer as a collaborator to a folder. This would be a tremendous enhancement for anyone who uses Box as a data room or would like automation with Box Sign and Relay.
