Previously, Box customers were able to apply metadata templates and update metadata values automatically on files, as part of Relay outcome. However, they were not able to do the same for folders, which limited their ability to leverage metadata for enhancing their search, information management and business process automation.
We have now released the ability to add metadata templates and update metadata on folders automatically in Relay outcomes. This enables customers to apply metadata at scale automatically or as part of automating their business process, and not have to do it a a separate step outside the workflow.
A new ‘Folder Action’ option is now available in the ‘Metadata’ outcome in the Relay builder.
For more information, see the "Metadata outcome options' section of this article - Understanding Triggers and Outcomes in Relay
Note: This capability is available as in Enterprise and above plans - as part of the 'Metadata events and actions' feature.
