  1. 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.

  2. Create Relay Tasks based on dates defined in metadata

    We would like to create tasks based on dates that have been assigned to the document through metadata. For example a task would be created on September 20 if that date was specified in metadata. We have several scenarios where documents "expire" and we need to renew them. These dates are variable based on when the original document is loaded into Box.

  4. Box Task Center notification pop-up

    Popup assigned tasks when users visit "All Files" page. Currently Box Task Center shows only number. To make it possible for a user to surely notice, popup is better.

  6. It would be great to have the ability to "brand" the splash page that is presented to users when they click on a "File Request" link

  7. Updates for Task Management

    Task management should:
    -Show a total number of tasks outstanding
    -Have the ability to categorize tasks
    -Have the ability to prioritize tasks
    -Include summary of time elapsed since task assignment
    -Always allow the user to check the task off, reject the task, or delegate the task to another
    -Task list should ALWAYS be searchable
    -Task lists should have the ability to have filters applied (age of task, assigned by, prioritization level, category, etc.)
    -Task auto assignment based on adjustable rules would be a plus

    Thank you for the feedback. Our updated tasks experience does show total outstanding tasks as a badge on the tasks center. The Tasks Inbox allows you to filter tasks based on completion status. We have updates for additional sorting under consideration for an upcoming cycle. Categorization and prioritization are not currently on our roadmap, but please do leave feedback on your use cases so that we can appropriately consider for the future.

  8. change task notification setting

    Can the task notification from a Relay be sent to the Uploader instead of to the person who create the workflow/task?

  9. Approval Task Message box

    When creating an Approval Task, the message box could be bigger. When typing a comment that is more than one line and you want to review the message in it's in entirety, you have to use the up/down arrows . Make the message box either 4", or allow that box to be made larger from a corner (drag it bigger)

  12. Turn task status to approved in individual task center for the person who approved in multi approval task

    When someone send a task to approve to a list of approvers, each recipient is notified and the task appears in the task center with an on going status and still until the whole approvers cconfirm. Suddenly someone who receives a lot of spots loses visibility and time to find only those he has not yet approved. It might be great that when this task is appoved by one it disappears when this last search for task to approved and appears in task approved.

  13. New File Request Submit Button moved to top or fit within viewport

    New File Request Template moves the submit button out of the viewport. Users will upload the file without scrolling down to fully 'submit' the file. Can we move the submit button to top of page, or make that preview page smaller to fit within viewport? See Customer comment below:

    "The thing about this template is that the CTA to submit is buried in the footer and outside the user's viewport on a laptop. I’ve seen with surveys when the CTA is not in the viewport, a portion of users miss it and never actually submit. And, there is no feedback…

  14. Allow for templates in the task section

    Allow for a custom task templates to be created and saved so a team can complete multiple similar files with the same tasks vs. having to write new tasks every time.

  16. Time to complete task including / excluding weekends

    A customer I am working with would like to add the flexibility to include or exclude weekends when adding a time to complete tasks. This would make more business sense to end users to not include weekends when assigning a time to complete, and would make for a more standard business process. It would make it easier when creating relay workflows to assign a task that needs to be completed in two business days rather than just two days. This would be for the reason that if a task is assigned on a Friday to completed in a day, then…

  18. Lock file upon approval task

    It is often desirable that the file is locked when an approval task is set to ensure that the approval is given on the exact version of a document as it was when the approval was triggered. It would be useful to have the option to lock a file until the approval task has been approved or declined.

  20. Your browser based video player is slow and doesn't always load files.

    video player is slow and at least 60% of the time I have to download a video because your website won't finish loading. It regularly gets hung up on the last 10% and will just sit there. This issue is destroying my productivity, and I am forced to download the files to my computer just so I can view them. My computer doesn't have infinite space, that's why we pay for your service.
