  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.

    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.

  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. 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。

  5. 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.

  6. 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。

  7. 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.
    When a user receives a notification email, I want to be able to easily check which file it is for.

  8. 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.

  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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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......

    We have 1000's of…

  13. 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.

  14. Ability to start a workflow from the "New +" section

    My customer would like to trigger a workflow that copies a folder (and subfolders) IN the folder where it is created.

    Customer use case:

    A financial services company needs to create a deal folder within the company folder a fund team is working from. Instead of going to the deal folder template to copy it into the specific company folder, they would like to trigger the workflow to copy the deal folder template to the company specific folder with one click and from the company folder.

    This would be similar to using a manual trigger but having a dynamic variable…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Send Relay notification to internal distribution list

    In relay, we want to send a notification to a distribution list (internal), but right now you can only send to managed users or external users that have been previously invited to a folder. We have a use case where we want to trigger a notification to an entire group, they have access to the folder, but we don’t want to rely on individual notifications for this, we want them to get a forced notification. They are in a group, but groups in box aren’t mail enabled.

    So either the ability to send to a distribution list… or honestly, what…

  20. Allow Adobe Bridge to Show BOX Drive Folders/Files (Worked in Previous BOX Version)

    With the update to BOX Drive Version 2.24.208, Adobe Bridge no longer shows BOX folders and Files when opening files in the application. In pervious BOX Drive version, Adobe Bridge showed folders/files, just like any other files – either local or in other cloud applications. HUGE inconvenience to workflow. Please reinstate this functionality.
