  1. 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。

  2. Folder setting: enable/disable file request

    Feature that allow owner/co-owner of folders to enable or disable file request in the folder setting.

    Currently, users can generate file request link in any folders with editor permissions. Some enterprise want to control (disable) usage of file request at the top-level folders depending on intended use.
    e.g. disable file request link in [internal-only] folder.

  3. Build a dashboard so that we can track the progress of our workflows that are in flight.

    Build a dashboard so that we can track the progress of our workflows that are in flight. There could be hundreds of workflows in progress at any time and it is too time consuming to log into each one to check progress.

  5. Add a shared calendar feature within the platform.

    My team has been using box for years. It is fantastic except for the lack of a shared calendar feature. It's very hard to understand why this hasn't been added yet. Users have been asking for it for YEARS, and it can't be much more complex than a box note.

    We despise Google and are not all on Outlook, and I know our team is not alone in this. All we want is a simple shared calendar within the platform.

  6. 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.

  7. Box Relay: ability to save draft of workflows without setting all the required fields

    When we create new workflows or edit existing workflows in Box Relay, we cannot save draft until we complete all the required fields. So we sometimes have to re-create workflows from the begging if we cannot fill in all the fields.
    It would be more convenient if we can save draft without setting all the required fields, especially when we create new workflows.

  8. 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)

  9. 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。

  10. Ability to select the folder with the folder URL in relay

    when select the folder in the relay workflow, can' t we select by the linkURL?
    we always find the folder from the top directory and it take to much time for that.

  12. 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.

  13. Use Box Relay to remove files from a folder using a wildcard like "*.PNG"

    When emailing file attachments into a Box folder, Box also includes undesirable files such as logos, signature images, etc. The logo and related files are not consistently named so you cannot select a specific file to delete. Could you modify Box Relay so that users could delete these files in a named folder using the wildcard function i.e. .PNG?
    So it would be Action=A File Action, Delete. Then the user would identify the folder where to delete and select a new option named "delete by file name". There the user would enter "
    .PNG" or something similar.

  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,…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    Hello all,


    Thanks for requesting this feature. The product team reviewed this request and added to our backlog for consideration. We look to revisit this next year and once we start working on this, we will update the status. 


    Thanks,

  20. Box Relay: Allow File Requests to be "returned" and resubmitted

    It would be great if Box Relay had a feature for workflows triggered by a File Request to be "returned" for edits. The Workflow Starter could revise and resubmit their files without seeing other applicants submissions within the same submission folder or resubmit to the same file request link and overwrite their previous version.

    Right now they have to resubmit and their original version is retained. The resubmission would overwrite the old version so there aren't two or more separate versions within a given folder. It is confusing for committees who go through many rounds of revision to have multiple…
