  2. Metadata triggers without folder specification

    --I want Box Relay to be able to kick workstreams off in sub-folders that don't exist yet. We have a general "Accounts" folder, and I want my metadata tag triggers to affect sub folders in that parent folder. However, the metadata trigger requires me to specify which specific folder to trigger the Relay within. I suggest one of two things:
    1. Remove the need for folder specification. If I have a metadata trigger, do I really need to specify the folder in which the content lives? Relay should scan for that metadata tag, wherever it occurs.
    2. Allow for Relay…

  5. Relay: Folder picker, select folder in search

    When choosing a folder when building a relay, there is a search box at the top. Often you will know the name of the folder you want to select, however, from the search results you can't put the dot in the folder name.
    Instead you have to search for the folder that contains the folder you want, then find the destination folder by scrolling down the list so that you can put a dot in the select box.

    The ask is to make searching and then selecting the folder one smooth operation

  6. Box Relay variable support

    Could we have a variable for approvers Instead of harcoding them to a relay?

    For example, if a document contained a metadata field for approver and it was populated with a user, could we use that metadata as a variable for the approval step of the relay workflow?

  7. 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.

  8. Ability to run relay workflows as a group

    Relay workflows and approval tasks are started and sent as the user that created the relay. Ideally you want to get the box approval task that is sent to the users to approve to look like it is coming from the team that is requesting the approval.

    Example: Invoice approval
    When an invoice approval relay starts, pick dept. from metadata and start an approval process to the appropriate user as defined in the workflow. The user gets an email that says 'boxadmin' (in out case the user that created the relay) has sent you an approval task.

    It would be…

  9. 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.

  10. When copying a folder with File Requests configured within it, add an option to have the File Request configurations copied as well.

    We have a need to setup folders with File Request features for our customers. When we do this manually, it takes a lot of time to set everything up as we need it. We'd like to be able to copy a folder (along with its subfolders) and its File Request setup. This would make any existing setup, like a template, which we can simply copy and rename in preparation for another customer.

    Currently, we can only copy the folders with or without contents. But either action does not copy the File Request configurations in the source folder.

    Thanks for your…

  11. Request Link via API

    Scenario for Request Link via API: 1) Ticketing system support case requires the openee to upload files to the ticket 2) Use app to collect case number, authenticate user, create folder with case number 3) Set File upload link "Title", "Add Instructions" and "require users to provide email" 4) Get file upload link from API for pasting into the support ticket

  13. manage metadata in Relay for both file and folder

    In Relay when You need to manage metadata the only possibility is on file.
    Why not on folder?
    The most suitable way is to have the possibility to manage for BOTH.

  14. Improve Relay error messaging for missing info

    If there is info missing, the relay workflow can still be saved. Instead of wiping out all that you've drafted, it goes into an inactive state so you don’t lose your work when you close the window.

    Even better would be if the error tells you WHERE you are missing info. Instead of the vague, “please fill out all required fields before saving" messaging

  16. Ability for variable dates in metadata templates

    When assigned a metadata template as a Relay outcome, customer would like to have the Date value be dynamic and reflect the date the template is assigned, vs the date the workflow was created. The idea is that each outcome would change the status field of the file, and they'd also like to capture the date the status was changed. Knowing the date the status changed would allow end users to search for content in a certain status, by date range.
    This functionality currently does not exist without asking the end user to manually update the date. Use case for…

    An integration between File Request and Relay was delivered this year. At the moment this programmatic generation of a link can be achieved with an API. An outcome type in Relay to generate a FR link is not yet planned.

  19. Enhance relay feature

    Relay limitations:

    Not being able to tie outcomes from one flow to other outcomes from other flows all within the same workflow. Dynamically having related outcomes is critical to Relay’s usefulness.

    Cascading folder metadata not being brought over when copying a file.

    Having a third option for approval tasks (approved with feedback/conditionally approved).
