  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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

    Thank you for the feedback. Our updated tasks experience does show total outstanding tasks as a badge on the tasks center. The Tasks Inbox allows you to filter tasks based on completion status. We have updates for additional sorting under consideration for an upcoming cycle. Categorization and prioritization are not currently on our roadmap, but please do leave feedback on your use cases so that we can appropriately consider for the future.

  5. 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.

  7. Time to complete task including / excluding weekends

    A customer I am working with would like to add the flexibility to include or exclude weekends when adding a time to complete tasks. This would make more business sense to end users to not include weekends when assigning a time to complete, and would make for a more standard business process. It would make it easier when creating relay workflows to assign a task that needs to be completed in two business days rather than just two days. This would be for the reason that if a task is assigned on a Friday to completed in a day, then…

  8. Lock file upon approval task

    It is often desirable that the file is locked when an approval task is set to ensure that the approval is given on the exact version of a document as it was when the approval was triggered. It would be useful to have the option to lock a file until the approval task has been approved or declined.

  10. Your browser based video player is slow and doesn't always load files.

    video player is slow and at least 60% of the time I have to download a video because your website won't finish loading. It regularly gets hung up on the last 10% and will just sit there. This issue is destroying my productivity, and I am forced to download the files to my computer just so I can view them. My computer doesn't have infinite space, that's why we pay for your service.

  12. Create a group and then assign them tasks all at once

    When assigning a task we have to add each assignee one at a time. Can we create a group and assign all at once? I send off to 11 and Barbara has 18 names.

  15. "Comments" - Feed to read most recent at the top/oldest at the bottom

    To make the "comments" feature more easier to read and follow as a team. It would be great if we have the option/it was the default for the most recent comments to appear at the top, and the oldest to appear at the bottom. This would prevent people from needing the extra step of scrolling all the way down to keep up to date/missing something because they didn't scroll.

    We're trying to persuade the team to use this feature more and it would really help with this.

  16. Past/Completed Tasks and Comments Deletion

    Completed tasks stay in the activity chain on any given file. This along with a long list of comments stalls the activity window while it tries to cache all of the past and current comments and tasks. Currently we have our users deleting old comments but we can't delete completed tasks. We need a way to delete old history in the activity window for any given file or your system needs to cache the activity so it appears instantly, sometimes it takes more than five minutes to be able to make new comments/tasks around a file.

    Please change Task completion email notifications back to “Task has been completed.” It is currently “Task has been approved.

  19. Retain completed tasks in the Notification CEnter

    We would like to find tasks completed by others in our Notifications Center. Right now, Tasks assigned to other users disappear from our list when the task is complete. We want to be able to see completed tasks.

  20. Hi BOX Team, as we know, Lotus Notes Team Rooms supported and funded by GTS will be shut down.. Let's build a interface with IBM bluegroups

    IBM Bluegroups x IBM BOX .

    Many spreadsheet application today work with bluegroups and DB Notes to a great and automatic access management. With the new notice, DB's will be sunset and we want to migrate to BOX but BOX still dont have an interface with IBIM bluegroups, so all access need to be set manually. If an interface, all users will be set automatically and all access flow will be automatic.

    Example:

    IBM Access Hub or IBM OneTeam -> IBM Bluegroup -> IBM BOX

    This is be very helpfull for many users that need to have a repository control…
