  2. Add more detailed information to Relay workflow tracking

    When viewing the tracking for an individual document progressing through a workflow, the task completion status is not granular enough to tell if any or no assignees have completed a task. For example: if there were four people required to approve a step, and three had approved, but the last person hadn't, this level of detail is only visible from the activity pane on the document, not from the tracking in Relay.

  4. Keep workflows active even after users are deactivated

    I was reading through FAQs for Box Relay and I see that if a user is deleted their workflows are deactivated....

    With no way to transfer workflows from one user to another don't you see this as a HUGE problem with the product?

    If we are expected to use this in production to manage enterprise documents, what are we supposed to do when someone who created the workflows is removed? This would be a huge impact to any org. Especially if someone on a team is the creator of all the workflows. This would require someone to recreate them, and…

  5. Allow folders to be uploaded with File Request

    File Request is a helpful feature, but often isn't useful as most external parties want to share folders (including sub folders) of documents with us. Can a feature be added to allow folders to be shared as part of File Request - perhaps renamed to Folder/File Request?

  6. Support multi-file for rejected task trigger in Relay

    Suppose you like to assign an approval task to a person with multiple files and when the task is rejected, you like to move the package of those “rejected” files to a different folder("Rejected folder) instead of having them sat in the triggered folder.

    For a single file, you can create the following workflow containing 2 flows and it works perfect as expected, however it doesn't work for multi-files...
    Flow 1: Trigger Manual start-> Outcome: Assign task -> When rejected, the flow is end
    Flow 2: Trigger Task -> Outcome: when the task is rejected, move the file to “Rejected…

  7. Ability to start Box Relay workflow by selecting folder.

    Currently, users are not able to start workflow by selecting folder. Customer store contract, project schedule worksheet, and project documents within a folder and like to move the folder to another folder.

  8. File Request - Assign to Other Collaborator Permission Levels

    Please allow Editors to send File Requests. Currently, only Owners and Co-Owners can send file requests. It would be extremely helpful if Editors could as well. In our organization, we have many with editor rights that could take advantage of this feature and would gain great efficiency . Making these users a Co-Owner will not work with our current permissions segregation.

  10. Remember the folder location for your flow on folder picker component

    Once you built your workflow, sometimes you want to doublecheck folder location for your flow.
    When folder structure is deep, the path is not visible on your flow, so you click the folder picker but it will navigate you to a root folder instead of the folder you selected.
    It will be helpful if it has an option to go to the selected folder location for the flow rather than root folder.

  11. Metadata triggers without folder specification

    --I want Box Relay to be able to kick workstreams off in sub-folders that don't exist yet. We have a general "Accounts" folder, and I want my metadata tag triggers to affect sub folders in that parent folder. However, the metadata trigger requires me to specify which specific folder to trigger the Relay within. I suggest one of two things:
    1. Remove the need for folder specification. If I have a metadata trigger, do I really need to specify the folder in which the content lives? Relay should scan for that metadata tag, wherever it occurs.
    2. Allow for Relay…

  12. Relay: Folder picker, select folder in search

    When choosing a folder when building a relay, there is a search box at the top. Often you will know the name of the folder you want to select, however, from the search results you can't put the dot in the folder name.
    Instead you have to search for the folder that contains the folder you want, then find the destination folder by scrolling down the list so that you can put a dot in the select box.

    The ask is to make searching and then selecting the folder one smooth operation

  14. Ability to run relay workflows as a group

    Relay workflows and approval tasks are started and sent as the user that created the relay. Ideally you want to get the box approval task that is sent to the users to approve to look like it is coming from the team that is requesting the approval.

    Example: Invoice approval
    When an invoice approval relay starts, pick dept. from metadata and start an approval process to the appropriate user as defined in the workflow. The user gets an email that says 'boxadmin' (in out case the user that created the relay) has sent you an approval task.

    It would be…

  15. Box Relay variable support

    Could we have a variable for approvers Instead of harcoding them to a relay?

    For example, if a document contained a metadata field for approver and it was populated with a user, could we use that metadata as a variable for the approval step of the relay workflow?

  16. Show progress bar for uploads when using file request widget

    We would like for the File Request Widget to have a progress bar for uploads, so users can see if their upload made it to Box or if it failed.

  17. Enhance page view for Relays in new UI

    When accessing Relay in the new UI, not all Relay workflows incrementally load nor are there pages to navigate through to view all workflows. I would like the ability to see all relays on one or multiple pages without using text filters.

  18. Either/Or Approvers

    Currently Relay does not support "either/or" approvers.

    We have use cases where we have multiple approvers in a process but only need a certain amount of approvers to continue the workflow. i.e. There are 3 approvers in a process but we only need 2 out of the 3 to approve.

  19. Improve Relay error messaging for missing info

    If there is info missing, the relay workflow can still be saved. Instead of wiping out all that you've drafted, it goes into an inactive state so you don’t lose your work when you close the window.

    Even better would be if the error tells you WHERE you are missing info. Instead of the vague, “please fill out all required fields before saving" messaging

  20. Request Link via API

    Scenario for Request Link via API: 1) Ticketing system support case requires the openee to upload files to the ticket 2) Use app to collect case number, authenticate user, create folder with case number 3) Set File upload link "Title", "Add Instructions" and "require users to provide email" 4) Get file upload link from API for pasting into the support ticket
