  1. Add a setting to prevent the "Add Task" from being displayed.

    When we preview the file, on the right side of the screen, in the Activity column, we will see "Add Task".
    However, there are times when we don't want our users to use the task feature.
    Please add a setting to prevent the "Add Task" from being displayed.
    For example, it would be nice if we could disable the task function in the folder settings.

    ファイルをプレビューした際、画面右側、アクティビティのカラムに「タスクの追加」とあります。
    しかし、タスク機能をユーザーに利用させたくないことがあります。
    「タスクの追加」を表示しないようにする設定を追加してください。
    たとえば、フォルダの設定でタスク機能を無効にするなどできると嬉しいです。

  2. Create a Task to provide a notification

    Create a Task to provide a notification to a user. For example if a document has been moved, this Task would create a notification to Bob that the file has been moved. He shouldn't have to do anything with this or approve or complete it, just be notified.

  4. Create Relay Tasks based on dates defined in metadata

    We would like to create tasks based on dates that have been assigned to the document through metadata. For example a task would be created on September 20 if that date was specified in metadata. We have several scenarios where documents "expire" and we need to renew them. These dates are variable based on when the original document is loaded into Box.

  6. Box Task Center notification pop-up

    Popup assigned tasks when users visit "All Files" page. Currently Box Task Center shows only number. To make it possible for a user to surely notice, popup is better.

  9. Ability to export Post history

    Add ability to export Post history for Posts/Activities on a document in Box - e.g. collaborative and task Posts. Capability to capture an exported list (in excel or in a pdf) and have as a separate file gives the ability to capture important history information for the document of collaborative posts and assigned tasks, such as assignees, task completion dates/times, etc.

  10. Notification on task assignment not supported in API

    Currently there is no option to send a user an email notification when they are assigned a task via API. This is an unexpected gap, as an email will be sent when the task is assigned manually in the UI, and there are few indications that the same will not be true for programmatically assigned tasks.

  11. Updates for Task Management

    Task management should:
    -Show a total number of tasks outstanding
    -Have the ability to categorize tasks
    -Have the ability to prioritize tasks
    -Include summary of time elapsed since task assignment
    -Always allow the user to check the task off, reject the task, or delegate the task to another
    -Task list should ALWAYS be searchable
    -Task lists should have the ability to have filters applied (age of task, assigned by, prioritization level, category, etc.)
    -Task auto assignment based on adjustable rules would be a plus

  12. Launch a Task or Workflow From the File Menu

    In order to assign a task or start a workflow a user must preview a file. Adding the ability to launch a task or workflow from the file menu would cut down on time and steps and improve the user experience.

  13. Approval Task Message box

    When creating an Approval Task, the message box could be bigger. When typing a comment that is more than one line and you want to review the message in it's in entirety, you have to use the up/down arrows . Make the message box either 4", or allow that box to be made larger from a corner (drag it bigger)

  16. Turn task status to approved in individual task center for the person who approved in multi approval task

    When someone send a task to approve to a list of approvers, each recipient is notified and the task appears in the task center with an on going status and still until the whole approvers cconfirm. Suddenly someone who receives a lot of spots loses visibility and time to find only those he has not yet approved. It might be great that when this task is appoved by one it disappears when this last search for task to approved and appears in task approved.

  17. New File Request Submit Button moved to top or fit within viewport

    New File Request Template moves the submit button out of the viewport. Users will upload the file without scrolling down to fully 'submit' the file. Can we move the submit button to top of page, or make that preview page smaller to fit within viewport? See Customer comment below:

    "The thing about this template is that the CTA to submit is buried in the footer and outside the user's viewport on a laptop. I’ve seen with surveys when the CTA is not in the viewport, a portion of users miss it and never actually submit. And, there is no feedback…

  18. Allow for templates in the task section

    Allow for a custom task templates to be created and saved so a team can complete multiple similar files with the same tasks vs. having to write new tasks every time.
