  1. options dialog when moving and file already exists in destination

    Currently, when a file is in the process of being moved from one folder to other and a file with the same name already exists in the destination folder, an error message is given and the operation is candelled.
    Maybe an options dialog would be better, asking the user if they want to overwrite (add a new version of) the file, or rename either of the files within the dialog.

  2. Approve each file separately for a manual start with multiple files

    We want to approve each file separately for a manual start with multiple files.

    For example, I get an application for three files and I want to turn back only one of them, but as it stands, I need to turn back all three. The applicant has to choose three files again and re-apply, which is very time-consuming.

  3. Assign Relay task to person who completed previous task.

    If you create a task and assign it to multiple users, say Tom, Bill and Susan where only 1 person needs to complete it, I want to be able to automatically assign the subsequent task to the person that completed the preceding task. For example, if Susan is the person that completes task 1, I would want the subsequent task to be assigned to Susan only, eliminating Bill and Tom from the process.

  6. Add "remove collaborator" option as option in a Relay workflow

    In the same vein as being able to Add a collaborator as part of a Relay workflow, it would be nice to also Remove a collaborator as well. Customer would like to Add a collaborator as part of a workflow, have that collaborator do their part, then have them removed as they no longer need access to the content going forward.

  7. relay assign workflow

    When a user leaves the company, the admin (or the user) should be able to assign his workflows to someone else. So far, the admin can only deactivate a workflow. We have cases where the relay workflow has 46 steps and if the owner leaves the company, the job is lost. It is a waste of time. As well, folder problems should be highlighted if the user is replaced, thus allowing either the assignment of permissions to the folder(s) or the ability to switch to new folder(s).

  9. Add more detailed information to Relay workflow tracking

    When viewing the tracking for an individual document progressing through a workflow, the task completion status is not granular enough to tell if any or no assignees have completed a task. For example: if there were four people required to approve a step, and three had approved, but the last person hadn't, this level of detail is only visible from the activity pane on the document, not from the tracking in Relay.

  10. Box Relay Lite email notification

    The current behavior of "Box Relay Lite" is that workflow creator gets the approval notification.

    The The expectations from us is that a notification email of the approval result will be sent to the approval requester who uploaded the file to the specified folder.

  12. File Request Timestamp

    File request duplicate timestamps:

    When we upload files with same file name via the file request link, time stamp will be automatically added to end of the file name in UTC+0000.

    We would like a way to select the timezone used to add the timestamp (maybe the timezone abbreviation can be specified at the end of the file name timestamp for when other collaborators view it)

  13. Allow folders to be uploaded with File Request

    File Request is a helpful feature, but often isn't useful as most external parties want to share folders (including sub folders) of documents with us. Can a feature be added to allow folders to be shared as part of File Request - perhaps renamed to Folder/File Request?

  14. Support multi-file for rejected task trigger in Relay

    Suppose you like to assign an approval task to a person with multiple files and when the task is rejected, you like to move the package of those “rejected” files to a different folder("Rejected folder) instead of having them sat in the triggered folder.

    For a single file, you can create the following workflow containing 2 flows and it works perfect as expected, however it doesn't work for multi-files...
    Flow 1: Trigger Manual start-> Outcome: Assign task -> When rejected, the flow is end
    Flow 2: Trigger Task -> Outcome: when the task is rejected, move the file to “Rejected…

  15. Notifications as a Relay workflow outcome

    Add the ability to create a specific notification as an outcome/step in Relay.

    I.E. "If step 2 of workflow is not complete after 5 days notify xyz person"

    or

    "once workflow is completed notify this group".

  16. Remember the folder location for your flow on folder picker component

    Once you built your workflow, sometimes you want to doublecheck folder location for your flow.
    When folder structure is deep, the path is not visible on your flow, so you click the folder picker but it will navigate you to a root folder instead of the folder you selected.
    It will be helpful if it has an option to go to the selected folder location for the flow rather than root folder.

  17. Auto overwrite if the file is uploaded with the same name in the folder via File Request.

    In the current spec, the file with the same name in the folder is uploaded via File Request, the file name is automatically changed to containing date and time.
    I want the option to overwrite the file when it has the same name of existing files.

  18. Create a Box group/alias or ability to select a different name to replace the workflow owner’s name.

    I’ve created several Relay workflows across the business and the issue I found is that people are reaching out to me because my name is tied to a task that is assigned to them. Often times, I do not have any context to the workflow so it results in me having to reach out to the person who started/uploaded the document. We want to avoid approvers having to reach out to the workflow owner vs. the actual owner of the program. This process would not be sustainable if it were rolled out to a larger company.

    Currently Example: Hayley creates…

  19. Enhance page view for Relays in new UI

    When accessing Relay in the new UI, not all Relay workflows incrementally load nor are there pages to navigate through to view all workflows. I would like the ability to see all relays on one or multiple pages without using text filters.
