  1. Customize invitation notifications to approvers for new feature additions

    A new feature has been added to Relay called "Invite Contact as Viewer" which will send invitation notifications to users who have already been invited to a group.

    We are getting invitation notifications every time we approve something, which is causing confusion.
    Please stop the invitation notifications.

    「担当者をビューアーとして招待する」という新機能がRelayに追加されましたが、この機能によりグループですでに招待されているユーザーに招待通知が送信されます。

    承認時に毎回招待通知が届いてしまい混乱を招いています。
    そのため招待通知を止めるようにしてほしいです。

  2. Ability to select external users who are collaborating on a folder to be notified of workflows created in Relay

    Currently, it is possible to set external users as notification recipients for workflows created in Relay only under certain conditions.

    Conditions:
     ・The folder/file is owned by the creator of the Relay Workflow.
     ・It is the external user who is invited to this folder/file that is set as the notification destination.

    There are many situations in which we want to send notifications to external users in Relay workflows.
    However, in a tenant running a closed folder configuration, it is rare that the workflow creator is the owner of the folder.

    Request:
    For managed users who are collaborating on folders and who…

  3. Customized email subject for Box updates

    I make Outlook email rules to keep all my projects organized, however I have multiple projects in Box . Issue being Box Update emails have zero reference to project or main folder name, so if I make a rule for Box Updates all my box updates get lumped in to one Outlook email folder. If there is any way to customize the email notifications(either custom project name or main folder name), please let me know. That would be very helpful

  4. Ability to set reminders for approaching deadlines on task approvals

    In the current version of Box Relay, you can set a deadline when assigning a task.
    However, after setting a deadline for approval, it would be nice if there was a function to send a reminder X days before the specified deadline so that the approval is not overlooked.
    Please add a function to send a reminder at a specified date and time before the specified deadline to prevent the approval from being overlooked.


    現在のBox Relayでは、タスクを割り当てるときに期限を設けることが出来ます。
    しかしながら承認期限を設定した後に、指定された期限のX日前にリマインダーを送る機能があれば、承認を見落とすことがないかと思います。
    見落としによる承認未実施を防ぐためにも、指定した期限前に指定した日時でリマインダーを送る設定機能を追加ください。

  5. Send a notification regarding document lock/unlock timing

    For teams that are actively working on a single document, the lock/unlock feature is nice to prevent version control issues. However, it would be nice to have additional notifications are this feature, namely:

    • "Notify me when this file is unlocked"
    • "Warn me [the person who locked the file] when the file lock is about to expire"
    • "Warn me [the person who locked the file] if I've left the file locked AND inactive for more than X minutes"

    Etc.

  6. Folder settings Notification mail

    Currently, there are two ways to set up email notifications: from [Account Settings] and [Folder Settings].
    The name "Folder Settings" may be misleading.
    The reason for this is that the name [Folder Settings] seems to affect users who are invited to the folder as collaborators.
    Therefore, please add a note to [Folder Settings] that the scope of the effect is only the user who made the setting, and that the effect is not reflected on users who are collaborating on the folder.


    現在メールによる通知設定は、[アカウント設定]からと[フォルダ設定]があります。
    この[フォルダ設定]ですが、とても誤解を受ける名称をしているかと存じます。
    理由として、[フォルダ設定]とあるため、フォルダにコラボレーターとして招待されているユーザーに影響があるように見受けられるためです。
    そのため、この[フォルダ設定]には影響範囲は設定を行ったユーザーのみであることと、フォルダにコラボレーションされているユーザーには反映されない旨を注釈として記載してください。

  7. View notifications in separate webpage

    It would be great if we can view all notifications in one webpage the same as you can do with tasks instead of just a drop down window.

  8. Use customer's own email gateway to send email notifications

    Many customers in regulated industries do NOT like the fact that email notifications from Box come from the Box Service with a noreply@box.com email address. The emails that Box sends on the user behalf do not go through a customer's email security or e-discovery system thus it creates problems in regulated environment that need to capture ALL communications between internal users and external customers. Box needs to have a configuration where a customer can configure their own SMTP gateway that Box can use to send email notifications with the proper TO and FROM data so they can better document and…

  9. Empty Folder Notification

    Someway to turn on notification based on folder or another relay.
    Where specific folders cannot be empty, and after a week or so it is empty, we get a notification and alert once a month about it.

  10. Out of office notice

    Hi,
    it would be nice if we received messages about out of office notes or e-mail errors (wrong address) for invitations and, for example, workflows. At the moment I don't know if someone just didn't respond or didn't receive the invitation / task.
    Best regards

  11. Ability to disable/modify admins receiving ALL collaboration invite notifications

    Currently every time someone in our organization shares a file or folder I get an email notification, it gets obnoxious at at times. It seems silly I can't control these notifications. The following need to be able to be turned off,

    • Collaboration invitations
    • Collaboration invitation acceptances

    In general more control over notifications is ideal, I can't imagine why this would be so difficult. Thank you.

  13. Turn off notifications

    Turn off notifications for the owner of the account on specific tasks not pertaining to this individual. The account owner is receiving notifications for everyone else's tasks and assignments.

  14. Auto-notify collaborators when a file is uploaded to a folder

    The folder owner should be able to create an email notification for all subscribers to the folder to receive a notification when a new file is uploaded to Box.

    The email would be sent to the user's email on file for that Box folder. The user would not have to update his/her own settings. The folder owner would set notifications, and the user would have to turn them off if too frequent.

    The scenario is that a shared Box folder with <10 users. The users are generally infrequent users of Box, so do not proactively check on the folder frequently.…

  15. Don't notify user when storage is only 70% full

    Got this notification today "Yikes, your storage is almost full. Get unlimited storage and advanced business tools to securely safeguard all your personal data."
    Went to my account details and saw I'm only 31Gb out of 50gb.
    A bit dramatic!

  16. Invite users to file request

    We would like to inform our users that we have created a file request area for them. As soon as we create a file request we would like to be able to send a number of users a notification that they should upload their files there.

    Currently we have to manually copy the URL into an email to inform people, which breaks the flow. We would like the same functionality we see when creating shared links.

  17. Notification to BOX Folder Co-Owner(s) when Owner has been removed/deleted

    The current behavior in BOX when a Folder owner is removed / deleted from the system is the Folder is no longer available.
    The process, in my experience, to recover the folder is not obvious, quick nor easy.
    I propose the BOX system notify all Folder Co-owners of a pending Folder removal / deletion and allow 2 weeks for the co-owner(s) to determine whether the Folder should be removed from BOX and if the decision is to keep the Folder active to determine the new Owner as well.

  18. Add sender's email address to the "Mail All" collaborators functionality.

    Currently when a notification is sent via email through "Mail All" collaborators function, it does not include an email to the person who created the notification. It would be beneficial to add the sender's email address to this notification process for documentation purposes and validation. When the creator does not receive the email, they are reliant on other parties to forward the notification, which is not efficient.

  19. Turn off Collaborator email notifications on Version updates

    Many of our collaborators have complained that they don't need to receive the numerous email updates every time minor document versions/revisions occur. Administrators and Owners of a Folder should be able to turn User Alerts both On and Off, when they want to alert recipients that an item's revisions are significant. It is unrealistic and impractical to tell our Executives that they personally have to drill down in their settings and turn off email notifications as an end user on their own device - that should be an Admin Console function.

    Admins and Owners should be able to adjust the…

  20. Ability to manage all notifications settings at the user level

    Our team would love to only receive Box notifications via Teams.

    Currently, you cannot turn off some notifications to go to your email, like when someone tags you in a comment.

    We would like the ability to disable this manually. Some users would like to have both options.
