  1. Relay to outside email

    I am attempting to create a workflow based on the uploading of documentation into a specific folder that will trigger a notification to our client to retrieve this documentation. However, it will not allow me to add this person although they are currently a contributor to the parent folder.

  2. Relay trigger for Microsoft Information Protection Labels

    When a Microsoft Information Protection label is mapped to a corresponding Box classification label, that currently does not serve as a trigger for Box Relay. The relay workflow is only available if the file is manually classified with a Box label, or if it inherits a label from a folder. Being able to trigger really workflows based on MIP labels would add considerable value to the MIP-Box integration.

  3. Creating multiple triggers in Relay

    We created a workflow to create subfolders automatically. The ability to create subsequent triggers in those subfolders would be helpful. (i.e. folder A is manually created, folder a1, a2, a3, are automatically created. When a file is uploaded in folder a2, do outcomes 1-3)

  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. Allow HTML Tags in the text of "Send Notification" action in BoxRelay

    Currently, the text entered in the subject and message fields of BoxRelay's "Send Notification" action is sent as is, but if HTML tags could be used, it would not only make it possible to use shared links in email notifications, such as "Please check [approved folder (hyperlink)]," but also expand the amount of information in notifications.

    <BoxRelayの「通知の送信」アクションのテキストでHTMLタグを使用できるように改善してほしい>
    現状BoxRelayの「通知の送信」アクションで件名およびメッセージ欄に入力されたものが、そのまま送信されますが、HTMLタグを使用できれば、メール通知で「[承認済みのフォルダ(ハイパーリンク)]を確認ください」といったような共有リンクを用いた表現が可能となる他、通知における情報量の幅が広がるため改善を希望します。

  6. 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。

  7. Prevent BoxRelay from creating a new folder with the same name

    When creating a folder in BoxRelay to store files, if a folder with the same name already exists, I want the files to be stored in the existing folder without creating a new folder.

    BoxRelayでフォルダを作成してファイルを格納するとき、すでに同じ名前のフォルダが存在する場合は、新しいフォルダを作成せずに既存のフォルダにファイルが格納されるようにしてほしい。

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
    (In Japanese)
    通知の相手に割り当てられたユーザーへの通知の際にファイル名を含めた通知を行いたい。
    通知を受け取ったユーザーが通知メールを受け取っても、どのファイルに対する通知なのかを
    簡単に確認できるようにしたい。

  10. Add new options for "file event" when creating a relay workflow

    Please add the option "New version or Updated" when creating a workflow for a "file event". The new upload option doesn't work if we're simply making an update/edit to an existing document.

  11. Box Relay Trigger "Update File"

    Currently there is no "file update" in the Box Relay trigger.
    If you upload a file with the same name in Box, it will be saved as a new version of the existing file instead of a new upload.
    There is currently no trigger to trigger in such a case, so it would be nice to have a "update file" trigger.

    現在BoxRelayのトリガーには、「ファイルの更新」がありません。
    Boxにて同じ名前のファイルをアップロードすると、新規アップロードではなく既存のファイルの新しいバージョンとして保存されます。
    そのような場合に発動するトリガーが現在ないので、「ファイルの更新」トリガーがあれば嬉しいです。

  12. 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。

  15. Create a subflow for rejected files in Box Relay

    In Box Relay, when an approval task occurs and the file is rejected, there should be an option to create a subflow for the rejection. Right now, we can only set-up a task or do nothing.

    We use metadata to categorize our files and trigger other relays. Right now, both unprocessed files and rejected files have no tag, because the rejected task workflow does not allow more actions to be taken on the file.

    We would like to be able to create a general task for our users, tag the file, and move the rejected file to a separate folder,…

  16. 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…

  17. Multiple Operators for Conditional Workflows in Relay

    Currently Box Relay allows a single operator for numbers in conditional metadata workflows (ie if the 'Amount' field is less than 50,000). If there was a way to have a combination of these operators for a single condition based on a range (ie if the 'Amount' field is between 50,000 and 100,000 as opposed to just greater than, less than, equal to, etc), this would be very helpful for contract approval/review routing in Box Relay, among other use cases where there are different outcomes for different range of numbers based on a metadata field.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. Modifying Relay AllowList that includes deleted users

    If a user previously set in the Relay AllowList is deleted, the deleted user will remain in the list and the error "The specified login is inactive or invalid" happened when I try to save the list.
    Even if I click "Save" without editing anything, same error occurs.

    It is not possible to export the user s of Relay AllowList, and there is no choice but to check each account one by one and deal with it, so I request improvement.
