  1. To retain Tasks even after "task-related user" is permanently deleted

    Currently, if a user is deleted, all of his/her related tasks will be deleted after the user is permanently deleted. Although task activities like approval and completion are recored in the admin reporting, it is not user-friendly and is unintuitive.

  2. Select multiple properties in files, and create interface like Spotify / Apple Music

    Hi Box support and community,
    France suggested I suggest here for the following ideas.

    Is there a way to make a selection of MP3 files all the same properties, ie. all end the same date, etc. ?

    Also, After making MP3 files, Can Box make a layout of music files like Spotify or Apple music ? I am working on placing my music on a WordPress site and want it to look similar and nice looking, since I already have those two services on the same webpage. (I hope so).

    These are the suggestions. I have these options through DistroKid,…

  3. Assign tasks through email address or user name

    Recommend reaching parody with the block that you put names into for a task assignment and the block you put names into for folder shares. Right now, for folder shares you can put a list of email addresses and it processes them to the appropriate people. For tasks, you need to enter each person by their username one by one.

  4. Register multiple people at once in the approval task

    If there are multiple approvers when creating an approval task
    I am registering each one now.
    Make it possible to register multiple users at once.

  5. Ability to link the task function of MS Teams to the task function of Box

    Request a function that can link the task function of Box and the task function of Teams of M365.
    Specifically, I want to be able to manage tasks from the task function of Teams, although the content exists on Box.

    Currently, it is necessary to receive task notifications by e-mail, access BoxWeb and approve them, but by implementing this function, it is possible to receive and approve notifications at the same time, improving business efficiency.

    (Japanese)
    Boxのタスク機能とM365のTeamsのタスク機能を連携させることができる機能を要望します。
    具体的には、Box上にコンテンツが存在するにも関わらず、Teamsのタスク機能からタスク管理を行えるようにしたいです。

    現状では、タスクの通知をメールで受け取り、BoxWebにアクセスして承認する必要がありますが、この機能を実装することで、通知の受け取りと承認を同時に行うことができ、業務効率を向上させることができます。

  6. Not able to see all the overdue tasks for all users

    Currently I only can see the overdue tasks assigned to myself and the tasks I sent to others. We would like to see overall overdue tasks for all groups and other users. This overdue report is very important to our business process.

  7. provide a way to auto-check the 'Only one assignee is required to complete this task' checkbox

    This is when you are adding approval tasks to a document. If you forget to check this, it can lead to everyone in a group having to go in and approve the document before it can be completed.

  8. Delete tasks once you have completed them, even if others on the task have not

    Don’t show tasks that you have completed, but other people on the task (including people that are no longer with the company “a prior collaborator”) have not completed.

  9. Improve to view the status of tasks

    As users are currently able to view by icons whether or not shared link is on files and files are locked at a glance in the "file list" view, we would like to view if tasks are done or not at a glance

  10. relay in progress view showing too many tasks

    Box lacks a dedicated way to see what tasks require my immediate attention.

    Tasks "in progress" show all tasks I haven't worked on, plus all tasks that my (former) colleagues have not yet finished. As we have some group tasks that not all colleagues respond to, the list of tasks is getting very long and makes it very hard for me to organise my work.

    A dedicated view "my open tasks", holding only the tasks that require an action for me, would greatly help.

  11. Task lifecycle should reside with the document, not the creator of the task

    When a user assigns a task on a document, and then leaves the enterprise, the task is deleted from the document when the user is deleted.

    The task is actually a part of the document's lifecycle, not the lifecycle of the user. If the content is owned by the enterprise, the termination of the user should not cause the task to be deleted.

    Our use case is this:
    Internal auditor gathers content and places it in Box
    Internal auditor assigns a task to the Finance Director and CFO to review the content
    Finance Director and CFO approve the task.
    Internal…

  12. Updtating task.is_completed when rejected

    When a task is rejected, the task.iscompleted status doesn't get updated and remains "in progress". The taks.iscompleted stauts should get updated to "rejected" to differentiate from those tasks where there is effectively an assignment pending at least to complete the tasks.

  14. 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。

  15. Have a largest textbox for messaging a task

    When I create an approval task, I have to deal with some information and currently I am limited by the window message wich is to short.
    So I prepare the text and copy/paste it but I have to adjust again because spaces disappeared.
    So it might be kind to have a largest window for seizing the message.
    Thank you.

  18. Customize frequency of task email notifications

    Currently there are 3 emails when assigning a task.
    -First email is when the task is assigned
    -Second email is a reminder that the task is due (one day before)
    -Third email is a reminder that the task is past due (one day after)

    I'd like to have the ability in the admin console to customize the frequency of these notifications. For example, I would like to send a reminder twice before the task is due (two days and one day before). Additionally, once the task is past due, send a reminder email every X amount of days until the…

  19. Task assigned to everyone in the folder

    We really would like to have the option to be able to assign the task to all members of a folder at once.
    Maybe with one tick in a box saying ASSIGN TO ALL in this folder.

  20. 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.
