  1. Display deleted user name instead of Prior Collaborator name on the Activity Details

    Display the name of a previous commenter, approver or collaborator, even if the user has left the organisation. At the moment it just says 'a prior collaborator' and this is not helpful when retrospectively tracking why key business decisions were made.

  3. Ability to edit tasks for users other than the workflow/task creater

    It would be nice if owners/co-owners of content could edit a task on items in a folder in case somebody is out and unable to do so

  4. Sort and Filter Feature within In Progress Tasks

    My team and I utilize the Task feature heavily and my Task Inbox becomes full. While I can currently filter down Tasks to "In Progress" I really would like to be able to sort my "In Progress" tasks further such as by due date and filter by task assignee.

  5. Data Insights for Box Tasks

    I am looking for a way to see a matrix of box tasks for each member of my team with their status, completion, etc. for all members of my team. Ultimately a dashboard view that indicates the number of tasks received, approved, denied, completed, outstanding, and overdue. Alternatively, a data connection to Monday.com or PowerBi would assist in seeing where we are at individually and as a team.

  6. Automate task creation on newly uploaded files.

    This is a multi-part request: I would like to be able to automate task creation and I would like to incorporate SLAs based on document tags/folders/etc.
    Basically, I would like a task to generate automatically based on set rules (identified assignee(s), SLAs e.g "Due Date = X min/hours/days in the future" based on x SLA)

  7. Show all uncompleted tasks on iPad

    Currently you can only check up to 20 tasks in the Box iPad app.
    However, when you are high up in the company, there are many tasks sent to you throughout the day and cannot see all the uncompleted tasks inside iPad.

    It would be great if you can increase the numbers of tasks shown or show all the uncompleted tasks on iPad too.

  8. When opening and zooming in on an Excel document saved in the Box app, the document closes frequently, making it difficult to use.

    I am using the Box app through my iPhone.
    There is one problem... It's serious for me personally (to the point where I gave up on the box app...)
    Open the Box app on your iPhone and open the Excel file saved inside.
    First, move your finger up, down, left, and right to view the material.
    However, since the screen is too small, I zoom in to view the document.
    To zoom in on a document, use two fingers or the fingers of both hands to zoom in or out.
    This is where the problem arises. When you zoom in…

  9. Slack notifications for tasks

    We cannot be getting task notifications on Slack Channel. Comment notifications to the Slack Channel have become very convenient, but if task notifications are also given, seamless communication will be possible and more convenient.

  10. Notification that someone you assigned a Task did not complete it by the deadline you set

    Often I assign Tasks with deadlines. While the person receiving the task gets notifications that the deadline is approaching, I do not get a notification if they did not complete the Task on time.
    This would be extremely helpful to know that Tasks have not been completed so we can follow up.

  11. Sort order after processing approval tasks and general tasks using Box Relay

    After assigning and approving tasks in Box Relay, we confirmed that tasks are displayed in ascending order according to the order in which they were put into the Relay workflow personnel, not according to the processing date and time.

    We feel that the current specification, in which approved tasks are not displayed in time order, is not intuitive.
    We would like to see the order in which General Tasks and Approved Tasks are displayed sorted by the oldest processing date, or the ability to reorder them arbitrarily.

    Box Relayでタスクを割り当て承認を行った結果、
    タスクが処理日時の並び順ではなくRelayワークフローの担当者に入れた並びで昇順で表示されることを確認しました。

    承認タスクが時間の順に表示されない現行の仕様は直感さに欠ける仕様と感じます。
    一般タスクおよび承認タスクの表示順番を処理日時の古い順番に並べていただくか、任意で並び替えができる機能が欲しいです。

  12. Setting a Due Date for Tasks

    I noticed that when assigning a due date to a task, the person does not receive the task on the actual due date. They receive a reminder email the day before and then an overdue email on the day after. However, there is nothing they get on the actual due date so it would be nice to have the task sent to the person on the actual due date.

  13. Anonymous

    We need a completely anonymous comment feature.
    Current anonymous comments have the flaw that the comment poster can be found via the mentions feature.

  14. Assigning tasks without previewing file

    When assigning a general or approval task, we must open the file itself and then add the tasks.

    There should be an option to just right click the file (on box.com) and have the ability to assign general/approval tasks from there instead of having to open each file.

  15. Box Task Inbox Filter to see only Tasks pending my action

    I use my Task Inbox all the time, and often receive Tasks with multiple assignees. It is frustrating when I can't filter out the tasks I have completed but that are still in progress pending action by someone else. Could you add a filter that would allow me to see only the Tasks pending action by me, that is separate from all tasks still in progress by any assignee?

  16. Ability to adjust the reminder intervals for tasks

    should be possible to adjust the reminder intervals for tasks (making it possible to customize reminders, such as 2 weeks, 1 week, etc.)

  18. Update Rejected naming in the notifications

    Please stop writing "rejected" in the notification that comes back when the created approval task is rejected. I would like to see more options, such as "send back".

  19. Add sharing and collaborating options into the task window

  20. Report of incomplete user tasks

    Create and automate the reporting of the incomplete tasks that are assigned in Box (e.g. assignee, workflow name, due date, status, etc.)?

    Our intent is to start reviewing / reporting on late Box tasks to better manage our workflows
