  3. Improve Relay workflow search bar (end user view)

    Relay search is hard to use (cursor pointer disappears while typing)
    This happens only in end user panel, admin search is not affected

  4. cursor does not move to search box

    Since your last update, when I click on the search box, my cursor does not move automatically to the box. I must place the cursor in the search box. I am using a Mac with the Chrome brower.

  5. Allow groups to be added as collaborators in Relay “Add Collaborator” outcome

    Would be great to be able to add a group of collaborators “Add Collaborator” outcome. Right now only single users are accepted as input.

  6. When are you going to bring back file aliases? Bookmarks are not the same and don't cut it.

    We need to be able to create symlink/aliases for files in multiple locations so that we aren't forced to upload a file multiple times, in several folders.

    We use Box to allow our clients to download files, and we sort those in a way that makes sense for them. We also use Box to upload all of our files in a way that makes sense for our employees to find assets. Without symlinks/aliases this is tedious to do and ridiculous to manage.

  7. cascade

    Box needs to add the cascade option to all Relay triggers to catch activity in underlying subfolders. The alternative is having to create several relay workflows that is too cumbersome to manage and doesn't scale.

  8. Add ability to undo an Approval/Rejection

    This morning I accidentally clicked on the Approve button rather than the Reject button, allowing an incomplete document to be submitted for approval

    It would be nice if an approval or rejection could be undone. Perhaps within a short time frame.

  9. Create Custom File Request links

    Currently, today, you can create a file request link, which generates a 32 character alphaumeric string. I'd like the ability to create a custom URL (like I can with shared links) to make it easier to promote my file request links to my stakeholders and make them more rememberable.

    These custom file request links could have mandated security attached to them, either enforcing these to be only available to links set to "Require Uploaders to log in to Box" or (not available today in the product), enforce adding a password to access the custom file request link (see additional idea…

  10. Notifications from Box Relay aren't very useful without linking back to the file or folder

    Relay is a great tool - but the Notifications aren't very useful. There is no way to link to the actual file or folder that is involved, so the user gets a very nebulous notification that is basically meaningless. Instead of being helpful, it could actually cause confusion for the user, if there are multiple activities happening at the same time.

    Please update this functionality! Thanks!

  11. Allow Folder Actions on "the folder of the file that triggered the flow"

    When trying to build dynamic workflows, you currently can work with and get a handle on either:


    • Folders can triggered the flow

    • Files that triggered the flow

    • Folders/Files created/copied from previous stages

    There are workflows, however, where you have a trigger on the file(s) but you want to move that entire folder to progress the flow.

    A "the folder of the file that triggered the flow" handle would be helpful in this scenario to allow you start a workflow, either through a file action or a manual start...assign tasks to that file and then be able to get a handle…

  12. Specify how date is displayed within the dynamic naming feature in Relay

    For non US customers... Specify how date is displayed within the dynamic naming feature in Relay. For example, 02/24/2021 vs 24/02/2021

  13. "apply workflow to all subfolders" should be an option for every trigger

    When using the "manual start" trigger of a workflow you can check a box that will apply the workflow to all subfolders. This would be useful for all triggers.
    Currently I need to create 10+ duplicate work flows that are exactly the same, but applied to separate folders.
    I am unable to use the "manual start" trigger because the workflow is most efficiently start by an external collaborator - and Box does not enable external collaborators to start manual workflows

  14. Email File Request Link from Box

    Add ability to email file request links directly from Box (similar to collaboration invites). This would allow customers to audit who sent out file request link/ when.

  15. Add “Do something after a certain period of time” option in outcome

    Accessing to some of our manual documents is strictly managed and we would like to delete these documents which are not effective anymore after a certain period of time (e.g. 1 day, 1 week, custom lengths etc.). If Relay is capable of this, we can streamline other systems that are currently implemented.

  16. external users to manually initiate a relay workflow

    currently only internal users can manually initiate a workflow which limits the situations workflows can be best used in. Allowing any user the initiate a workflow would all customers to get the most out of this feature

  17. Multilingual file requests

    We need to be able to create file request forms in French and Spanish to send to folks who do not use English. While we can create some of the language in Spanish in designing the file request, all the instructions, help and error messages remain in English, which won't help our users.

  18. Entering multiple accounts should auto-populate under in Assignee(s) field.

    For the Relay window, users should enter emails one at a time so that the assignee options populate. For collaboration window, if entering all emails at once works, pasted accounts will be auto-populated. So it should also work in the Relay window.

  19. Allow File Request Boxes to be customized

    The file request boxes are extremely limited and need some basic levels of customization. The iframes are ugly and need to go, but at the very least we should be able to chose the height and width of them.

  20. Add “Specify when started” option in “Send a notification” outcome

    There is an option “Specify when started” in “Assign a task” outcome. It would be convenient to have a similar option in “Send a notification” outcome, since the recipients might vary depending on who started the workflow.
