  1. move/arrange flows by moving them onto the worflow tree (on the right)

    The aim is to modify the order of a flow by moving it through the workflow tree (on the right of the screen). This will be useful when U duplicate a flow and move it to another place into the scenario.

  3. Import data already on Box into DICOM viewer

    The only way to import images into the DICOM viewer right now is to upload directly using the import tool. This is problematic for two reasons: 1. large sets of data are handled better through Drive or Sync than a web interface and 2. data already in Box need to be downloaded and then imported (uploaded) again using the import tool, which is not practical when working with 10s-100s of GB of DICOM data. There should be a mechanism to import data already stored on Box into the DICOM viewer.

    This may be similar to a different issue: https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/36114310-direct-dicom-upload-endpoint-desired

  4. Ability to mirror documents in other root folders

    Our organization utilizes the collaboration with external users to give them access to view one specific folder relative to their client account. We do not want these users to have access to our main folder that houses the original documents for their client account, but rather only this one specific folder that has a copy of selected documents relative to their positions on the Board. Right now, we have to manually upload or delete new documents to both folders. If there is a change to our original document, we have to manually upload the new version to the copy folder…

    Hello, if we understand your request correctly, you could use the bookmark feature to bookmark a link to specific files so the Board will always be routed to the up-to-date version of the original document but not be able to view the rest of the items in the main folder.

  5. Group permissions allowed using auto-start template with Box Relay

    Our use case requires that group permissions be allowed when using auto-start template with Box Relay. As of right now it only allows for a direct permissions to a folder before publishing the workflow.

  6. Add option to cancel workflow, move files to trash automatically on reject

    On rejecting, the workflow options are to go back to a previous step or to complete the workflow. However, if you reject, you may want the workflow to end and if the file has been rejected you certainly don't want to save it to the approved files directory (this has happened to us recently and caused a problem with a customer). On rejecting there should be a different option - to cancel the workflow and trash the files or auto-select a "rejected documents trashbin folder" in order to avoid accidentally saving rejected files to an approved files directory. This sounds…

  7. Move uploaded files (via an Automation) to different folders based on the file type.

    Use case: Users could bulk upload a range of file types (docx, image pdf, audio etc) into a single folder that redirects each file based on the file type to different folders for different skills processing.
    Example: a word doc and an audio file could be uploaded to the same folder the word doc gets auto moved to a folder that triggers a skill to extract concepts however the audio file is moved to a folder that triggers a speech to text skill (the text could then be auto moved to the same folder as the word doc for concept…

  10. Records Retention Functionality

    This is a very old idea that should available for Box users. Dealing with real records retention not retention policies as currently used in Box. Records/Document retention deals with the management of information thru its lifecycle - Records/documents are created, used, store, archived, kept permanently (for administrative, legal, fiscal, and historical reasons) or destroyed. Currently, there is no way to apply records retention rules or schedules to Box, which means that we are only dumping content instead of managing the content based on its value - based on a company's records retention schedules. Why not put together a group of…

  12. Allow concurrent workflow steps

    Currently, if a step in a user's workflow needs to get a response from multiple parties concurrently, this is not possible. For example, sending out marketing materials to multiple agencies at the same time and waiting for a response from all. At the moment, we would have to make this sequential whereby the second agency would receive a task only when the first agency has completed one.

  13. show automation creator as the sender of automation task assignment email

    Currently, automation task email notifications show the sender as the primary email regardless of who created the automation

    In a large company, users might not even know who the admin is and discard the emails as spam or unnecessary.

  14. File Checker

    I would like my program to be able to access all .pdf files in a given folder, and read them to find and extract specific information on each .pdf document like scraping the text data in each of the .pdf fields. This data would then be used to compare to an excel spreadsheet.

    This would essentially be a file checker. Making sure that the information entered on a .pdf file is the information that we have on a separate excel spreadsheet.

    Thoughts?

  15. Give users access to Automations without becoming a co-admin

    Certain communications do not need to go to Automations creators. Rather, they are truly meant for co-admins. Additional granularity would help reduce noise.

  16. Import Relay workflow into production environment

    Having the ability to export/import Relay workflows (without roles etc.) from sandbox to production will smooth the onboarding and transition process.
