What is the new release of Relay?


This article has been archived.


Effective January 1, 2020, Box no longer offers Relay Classic. As for any Box files you may have used in Relay Classic workflows, these remain in Box and you can continue to access them as you normally do.

See below for more details on the new and improved Box Relay that replaced Relay Classic.

The all-new Box Relay is hosted natively on Box's content management platform.  Newly re-architected, Box Relay includes some significant improvements over Relay Classic.  It is:


  • More Powerful. There’s an all new workflow engine, built from the ground up on the Box platform. We’ve also expanded the list of both trigger and output events, including files, folders, tasks, metadata, and more. 
  • Simpler. Box Admins and power users can now automate their processes. This includes a new no-code builder, which enables you to assemble sequential and parallel workflows directly from the new UI.  There’s also an exportable activity dashboard to make reporting even easier.
  • Built on Box. Box Relay inherits Box's security and compliance protections, and leverages all of Box's updates with regard to tasks, metadata, administrative control, and so on.
