We are excited to announce that as of today, our updated UI enhancements to Tasks and Notifications web experiences are now live in public beta!
Many organizations still struggle with collaborating on critical content, tracking action items and approvals through ineffective mediums such as email and silo-ed task management systems. This often leads to missed deadlines, neglected tasks - and worse - potentially missed critical approvals.
With our all new Tasks & Notifications updates in beta, we're making it even easier for users to stay on top of their most important work: the all new Task Center allows users to view all your actionable work while the enhanced Notification Center helps you more easily keep track of relevant activities in Box.
New Tasks Center
What's new? In your navigation bar in Box, you will notice an all new Task Center, with a popover to view your incomplete tasks. This gives you quick access to view all your assigned tasks so that you can quickly unblock your colleagues. We're also updating the types of tasks one can assign in Box. Now, users can create either a general or approval task, providing better traceability to approval processes that require an exportable audit history.
Updated Notifications UI
Those who join the beta will also have a new, streamlined Notifications UI on web (and soon mobile!). The Bell icon in the Box header now opens to show a single view of all new, relevant activity. See when people have added you to files or folders, and view comments on files you've interacted with or @mentioned.
With these beta updates in the new Task Center and updated Notification Center, users have separate views to either view actionable work or relevant activity. Just another way we're trying to help you stay on top of all the relevant work in Box.
Box Admins and Co-admins - join the public beta today!
