  2. Add initials to the "Signatures & Fields" menu in Box Sign

    Many documents (e.g. Wills, contracts) require the signer to initial each page to confirm that they have read and agree with the content of that page. It's also common to have a signer initial a section of a document to confirm that they have read and agree with that section. A typical workflow requires the signer to initial a document one or more times, then sign the document.

  3. Allow personalized signatures

    I have a saved signature on my computer that I use. I don't like putting a generic signature on e-documents.

  4. 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

  5. Box uses low contrast fonts which make reading messages difficult

    Emails from Box render with a grey font against a grey background in Outlook. Emails are unreadable.

    Fonts on the website are low contrast making it hard to read.

  6. 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。

  7. Ability to comment on Box Relay approval tasks

    Currently, there is no function to enter comments when executing approval tasks using Box Relay.
    We are currently using email and the Mention function, but this is inconvenient, so we would like to have the ability to enter comments at the time of approval or rejection.
    Having a comment when approving or rejecting a task will help us communicate with users, so we would appreciate it if you could add this as a feature.


    現在Box Relayを利用した承認タスク実施時に、コメントを記載する機能がありません。
    メールやメンション機能を現在は利用しておりますが、不便なため、承認時または却下時にコメントを入力する機能が欲しいです。
    承認時や却下時にコメントがあることで、ユーザーへの意思疎通ができますので、機能として追加をいただけますと幸いです。

  8. Ability to reduce file size when image is scanned via the Box mobile app

    Ability to reduce file size when image is scanned via the Box mobile app.
    - Currently, the size of PDF files obtained when we scan a document via the Box mobile app, is very large.
    - Example: Box app on iPhone file size - 7.4MB; Apple's "import from iPhone" file size: -3.9MB. - Could we have the ability to resize / reduce quality of these files?

  10. Continue to see the folder that a user is invited to after accepting invitation, though they may have access to the parent folder.

    If you have access rights to a folder higher than the invited folder, when you click "Accept invitation", the invited folder should be displayed.
    /招待されたフォルダより上位フォルダにアクセス権を持っていた場合に、招待を承認をクリックした際、招待されたフォルダが表示されるようにして欲しい

    When you click Accept Invitation in the email sent to you when you collaborate, the invited folder will normally be displayed in your browser.
    However, if you already have access to the top folder of the invited folder, the top folder will be displayed when you click accept invitation.
    Since the behavior is different between the newly invited folder and the one with access rights to the top folder,
    can we make it so that…

  11. API for "CRUD" for Box Relay and Box Relay Lite

    We have created over a hundred of Relay workflows and have currently faced a difficulty in adjusting all rules when our orgnization is changed. We would like to have a set of APIs for Relay for creation, reference, update and delete operations (so called CRUD).

    Also we would like to have an way to update folder ID(s) on existing workflows. It would help so much especially when annual org change happens.

  12. Request for improvement of mail upload function

    I found a problem with the current mail upload function, so I would like Box to improve it.

    [Request (1): Adding Management Console and Folder Settings]
    Users with Editor permission can change the settings of the folder's mail upload function.
    However, I would like to add the ability to restrict this permission to owners and co-owners to the administrative console and the settings for each folder.

    [Request (2) Timing for saving the settings of the mail upload function]
    If you click "Allow uploads to this folder via email" about the mail upload function of the folder, the URL for the…

  13. Relay:Users who have already been invited in a group will not be invited with "Invite assignees as Viewers/Editors"

    [Background]
    A new feature has been added to Relay called "Invite assignees as Virwers/Editors".
    "Invite assignees as Virwers/Editors" are sent to users who have already been invited in the group.
    This is confusing because additional invitations are carried out to users who have already been invited.
    Furthermore, operationally, this requires the collaboration to be removed from the relevant file each time.
    *As a company rule, we are not allowed to collaborate with individuals individually, except in groups to which they have been previously invited by Admin.

    [Request]
    Users who have already been invited to a group should not be invited.

  14. Secure open link - Domain white list for open shared link

    This request is an idea that will become possible after the following requests are realized.
    Secure open link① - Require email address verification with one-time password
    https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/43755942-secure-open-link-require-email-address-verifica

    【Summary】
    Please add "Allow only email addresses from specific domains to receive one-time passwords" to the Open Link settings.
    This will make it possible to prevent secondary distribution and miscommunication, which is a huge issue for Open Link.

    【Issues to be solved】
    Current Open Link is not secure enough as an alternative to attachments.
    Compared to attachments, the ability to determine the information of the access source and the ability to block access…

  15. Be able to specify a document or a shared link in “Send Notification” outcome

    It would be convenient if the “Send Notification” outcome had an option to specify a document or a shared link in the notification body.

    Right now it is only possible to input plain text.

  16. Microsoft Teams and Box Notes integration

    Being able to view Box note files without login required within the Microsoft Teams desktop platform. Ideally you would also be able to edit Box notes within the MT platform or have a link that opens the note up in your Box notes desktop so you can easily find and edit the document through MT, rather than open up Box online or Box notes to dig around and find the note.

    Anyone else find the process a bit cumbersome?

  17. Generate Shared Links as a Relay Outcome

    Would like the ability to automate generating shared links on files within Box Relay as an outcome. One use case for this would be to create a process for generating external shared links. Many security-conscience customers don't want everyone to have the ability to shared content externally without some sort of approval or oversight. If we added generating and sharing shared links as an outcome in Relay we could build approval flows that would allow users to get approval to share a file externally even if they don't have the access do so.

  18. Add external collaborator's expiration date on collaboration report

    In the collaboration report, there are invited date and accepted date, but there is no expiration date. Would it be possible to add expiration date in the collaboration report?
    Because it is too tough to confirm the expiration date one by one on the collaboration list page or using API, I demand the way to confirm enitre expiration date easily.

  19. Shield Suspicious Location User-Level Exclusion

    Allow for user level exclusion for suspicious location alerts. This is helpful in the event that users are traveling across locations and various IP addresses.

  20. Add "Updated/Changed" File Event as a Trigger

    Add "Updated/Changed" File Event as a Trigger.

    Triggering a Relay on a specific file when it has been updated directly or updated with an upload, maintaining file history.

    The current workaround is to create a "New upload" Trigger, then the file needs to be Deleted and create/uploaded from new, thus requiring 2 steps and losing file history.
