  1. Ability to customize the notification emails sent from Relay

    We would like to incorporate this into Relay as a review and tracing task by forcing notifications to specific people or groups.

    It is difficult to do the above with the current e-mails being sent.
    It can't be reached with a single click because there is no file name or link to the trigger folder in the email only.
    Therefore, we would like to see the following improvements.

    [About the image]
    ・It could be mistaken for spam.
    ・Most of the mail body is occupied by images, making it difficult to read fixed messages.
    At the very least, We would like…

  2. 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。

  3. 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…

  4. Allow Relay notifications to include manually entered email addresses instead of limiting the list to existing collaborators

    Currently the Relay system will only allow notifications to be sent to existing collaborators or users. There should be a way to allow any manually entered email address to be a notification destination. This would allow for group or shared email accounts to be a notification destination. Group email addresses or shared email accounts may not exist as specific collaborators but still could be useful for notifications.

  6. Disable email upload notification for users who are uploading the files

    We are using Box Email feature to collect all attachments from the important thread. Box sends notification after succesful upload for EACH file. Sometimes company logo in the signature is also treated as an attachment. The end result is too many emails from box.
    It will be better to turn off this feature at the folder level. If folder to which the attachments get delivered could select to turn off the notifications, it would be greatly appriciated.

  7. Warning before deleting files or folders

    Before deleting files and folders, there should be a warning, so you don't accidentally delete a file or folder you didn't mean to.

  8. Ability for folder co-owners to recieve additional collaboration notifications

    In Box, when a collaborator invites another collaborator, the owner of the folder will be notified by email that the collaborator has been added. I would like you to add the ability to send this notification to co-owners as well. Folders are often not managed by the owner alone, and co-owners need to get as much information as the folder owner.

  9. Email Notification for specific documents or tags

    In the current version of the Box product, there is no feature available to notify a user or a user group for that matter, of any uploads of specific file types or specific tags on files.

    We would like for our users to be able to be notified of uploads of specific files in a given folder instead of being inundated with notification emails for every upload done in a folder.

  10. Ability to easily view notifications

    Tasks, etc. are notified in the notification field, but I would like to see it improved so that it is easier to see.
    For example, carousel or feed format.
    I would like the notifications to be structured in such a way that I can always see them on the screen and notice them without having to click on them.

  11. 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。

  13. Specific Text Box Area for Notifications

    Problem: Whenever a notification popup shows up (file is done uploading, file has moved, etc) it blocks access to a lot of functionality in the upper part of the screen - even something that is to the left or right of the notification but is not covered up.

    Rather than having a popup notification to tell you that an event has finished (such as a file or folder being moved), instead create a static notification area to report to.

  14. Ability to send custom notifications for new uploads by external users

    A customer of ours reached out to ask if it is possible to configure email notifications for a Box folder to send to anyone who uploads a document into this folder. Specifically she is asking whether an automatic reply email can be created and sent to anyone who uploads a file into a folder she owns. This folder is for admissions purposes, so having every uploader adjust their email notification settings is not a practical solution in this case. Since this is not currently an option for Box, I wanted to submit this feedback to suggest for future releases.

  15. Ability to manage pop-up messages

    Integrate a switch to turn off pop-up notifications (those which pop up for every single step or process).
    Maybe have different levels of notifications, like for debugging ("none" to "confirm every step")
    There are way too many pop-ups in Box worsening the "user-experience".
    See what can happen, if you have daily several hundreds or thousands of clicks too much to do for unnecessary things like clicking away pop-up windows which notify you about things you already know you have done (like another user put it so aptly into Box community):
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carpal_tunnel_syndrome
    https://theboar.org/2014/08/point-click-dangers-carpal-tunnel-syndrome/

    Let everyone choose individual Box-feedback levels for themselves…

  16. 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

  17. Update invited collaborators expiration settings

    Enterprise Settings > Content & Sharing > Invited collaborators expiration settings > Notify affected users

    Currently, we know scope of the notification includes co-owner who is collaborated in the folder itself.
    But, we would like you to also notify co-owner who is collaborated in upper folder.

  18. Allow granular controls for disabling "Mail All" function for file/folder shares with collaborators.

    Allow companies to disable the "Mail All" function of the Collaboration page of a File/Folder so that hundreds/thousands of collaborators of a large company wide share cant be sent notifications errantly, causing a lot of unnecessary noise.

  19. 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.
