  1. Not able to see all the overdue tasks for all users

    Currently I only can see the overdue tasks assigned to myself and the tasks I sent to others. We would like to see overall overdue tasks for all groups and other users. This overdue report is very important to our business process.

  2. relay in progress view showing too many tasks

    Box lacks a dedicated way to see what tasks require my immediate attention.

    Tasks "in progress" show all tasks I haven't worked on, plus all tasks that my (former) colleagues have not yet finished. As we have some group tasks that not all colleagues respond to, the list of tasks is getting very long and makes it very hard for me to organise my work.

    A dedicated view "my open tasks", holding only the tasks that require an action for me, would greatly help.

  3. Improve to view the status of tasks

    As users are currently able to view by icons whether or not shared link is on files and files are locked at a glance in the "file list" view, we would like to view if tasks are done or not at a glance

  4. Delete tasks once you have completed them, even if others on the task have not

    Don’t show tasks that you have completed, but other people on the task (including people that are no longer with the company “a prior collaborator”) have not completed.

  5. Task lifecycle should reside with the document, not the creator of the task

    When a user assigns a task on a document, and then leaves the enterprise, the task is deleted from the document when the user is deleted.

    The task is actually a part of the document's lifecycle, not the lifecycle of the user. If the content is owned by the enterprise, the termination of the user should not cause the task to be deleted.

    Our use case is this:
    Internal auditor gathers content and places it in Box
    Internal auditor assigns a task to the Finance Director and CFO to review the content
    Finance Director and CFO approve the task.
    Internal…

  6. 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.

  7. Add a setting to prevent the "Add Task" from being displayed.

    When we preview the file, on the right side of the screen, in the Activity column, we will see "Add Task".
    However, there are times when we don't want our users to use the task feature.
    Please add a setting to prevent the "Add Task" from being displayed.
    For example, it would be nice if we could disable the task function in the folder settings.

    ファイルをプレビューした際、画面右側、アクティビティのカラムに「タスクの追加」とあります。
    しかし、タスク機能をユーザーに利用させたくないことがあります。
    「タスクの追加」を表示しないようにする設定を追加してください。
    たとえば、フォルダの設定でタスク機能を無効にするなどできると嬉しいです。

  8. Have a largest textbox for messaging a task

    When I create an approval task, I have to deal with some information and currently I am limited by the window message wich is to short.
    So I prepare the text and copy/paste it but I have to adjust again because spaces disappeared.
    So it might be kind to have a largest window for seizing the message.
    Thank you.

  9. 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

  10. Customize frequency of task email notifications

    Currently there are 3 emails when assigning a task.
    -First email is when the task is assigned
    -Second email is a reminder that the task is due (one day before)
    -Third email is a reminder that the task is past due (one day after)

    I'd like to have the ability in the admin console to customize the frequency of these notifications. For example, I would like to send a reminder twice before the task is due (two days and one day before). Additionally, once the task is past due, send a reminder email every X amount of days until the…

  11. Task assigned to everyone in the folder

    We really would like to have the option to be able to assign the task to all members of a folder at once.
    Maybe with one tick in a box saying ASSIGN TO ALL in this folder.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. Ability to export Post history

    Add ability to export Post history for Posts/Activities on a document in Box - e.g. collaborative and task Posts. Capability to capture an exported list (in excel or in a pdf) and have as a separate file gives the ability to capture important history information for the document of collaborative posts and assigned tasks, such as assignees, task completion dates/times, etc.

  18. 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.

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

  20. Notification on task assignment not supported in API

    Currently there is no option to send a user an email notification when they are assigned a task via API. This is an unexpected gap, as an email will be sent when the task is assigned manually in the UI, and there are few indications that the same will not be true for programmatically assigned tasks.
