  1. Add fixed-width font options

    Ticket # INC4849532 - Customer wants to use Box Notes to write documents that contain code-snippets and excerpts from logs. They would like to use a fixed-width font for these snippets, but Box Notes doesn't allow them to select font and there's no style for fixed-width.

    The issue is the same as the one described in this forum post: https://community.box.com/t5/Web-App-Forum/Boxnote-fixed-width-font/td-p/31194

  2. Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    You cannot delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.
    It is not necessary to display Notes that are no longer relevant to the user or that they no longer need to access.

    By deleting the history, only the Notes that are relevant to you will be displayed, which will improve the efficiency of your work in Box Note.


    Box Noteの「受信トレイ」と「最近のノート」の履歴を削除する。

    ボックスノートの「受信箱」と「最近使ったノート」の履歴を削除することはできません。
    ユーザーに関係のないノートや、ユーザーがアクセスする必要がなくなったノートを表示する必要はありません。

    履歴を削除することで、自分に関係のあるノートだけが表示されるようになり、Box Noteでの作業効率が向上します。

  3. Support Free Form Handwriting in Box Notes

    Box Notes needs fully embrace digital hand writing support, especially on mobile like with the Apple Pencil on the iPad. This is a fast growing form of taking notes now that many tables and phones support some sort of pen-based input. To be clear this is separate from pen-based annotation support Box now has I am talking about real digital note taking? I use app called Notability (www.gingerlabs.com) and they have executed this very well and already have a Box integration. I would go as far as to say that Box should buy Notability. They already have a…

  4. Assign Tasks to Box Notes

    We want to be able to assign Tasks to a Box Note similar to the way you can add a General Task or Approval Task to a document.

  5. Convert BoxNote to PDF, DOCX, etc...

    BoxNotes would be much more useful if there was an ability to able to generate a PDF or other document format that can be stored in a more traditional method in Box. Some customer that work in the regulated space can't use BoxNotes for various reasons. But, in many cases there is an issue with the fact that BoxNotes does not follow the same retention capabilities we have in Governance. Also, Keysafe does not support BoxNotes, so it may be a workaround if BoxNotes were archivable.

    The initial idea would be to support PDF generation, but i can also see…

  6. Feature requests

    I wish Box notes were more like DropBox Paper. Top things I like:


    • The editor is essentially a live Markdown editor so nearly all formatting doesn’t require leaving the keyboard.

    • Full support for Markdown export.

    • Comments can be attached to each paragraph - so much better than the one thread per Box note.

    • Links are properly clickable without the silly ‘link bubble’

    • Auto-generated ToC

  7. Create Pages and collapsable sections within Box Notes

    Add a feature that allows multiple Pages and Sections within a single Box Note, similar to OneNote.

    Also add a feature that allows for a collapsible section within a single Box Note - for example to use for different topics at an event, or different days at a conference - instead of making a new Note for each topic/day.

  8. adding anchor link capability to Box Notes

    Hello. When creating a Table of Contents in Box Notes, it would be helpful to have an anchor links button/function for long pages, so readers don't have to scroll to find each section. Thanks!

  10. Edit a Box note without a box account

    There should be a way to edit a Box note for people that do not have a box account. When I work with folks from older generations, they are often overwhelmed with creating new accounts. I don't want them to need to create a box account to be able to edit Box notes. If the note has a shared link, anyone with the link should be able to edit the note - without needing to be signed in to their box account.

  11. Box Notes Export or Download to Common Formats

    It would be great if Box Notes supported a simple way to Download/Export into non-Box format like plain text, html, markdown, rtf, or Word. I am hesitant to leverage Box Notes until this feature is present.

  12. Spell checking in actions comment box

    You need to enable spell checking in the actions for a document. This is very frustrating when you are trying to quickly respond to or post a comment.

  13. Box Note Table Functions

    We want to be able to use equations/functions in Box Notes Tables similar to Excel or Google Sheets functionality. For example, typing AVERAGE = (B2:B4) into cell B5 would find the average of cells B2 through B4.

    This would be a very helpful update.

  14. Rearrange rows of tables

    We use Box Notes for almost every meeting and use tables to display the agenda. Many meetings have set agenda templates but often the presenters or topics will be shifted based on availability.

    The ability to rearrange the rows/columns in tables would greatly reduce the amount of time I have to create a blank row/column, then copy/cut each individual cell from the row/column I intended to move to the new blank one.

  15. Add header and title to Box Note table feature

    The customer would like to be able to fix certain parts of Box Notes to be visible at all times.
    e.g header(row, column etc) of tables ,the title of section

    As you fill in Box Notes, the page scrolls down naturally and then parts of Box Notes above become invisible whether they are a "header" or a "title" of table.
    The customer wants these to be visible at all times even if you scroll down.

    An example would be like the "subject" part at the top of an email in Outlook, which is something that is always visible regardless of…

  16. Boxnotes on iOS - Insert row in table

    I cannot seem to find a way to insert a row in a table that is within a box note using the iOS app. I can insert images, format text, etc. in existing table cells, but cannot manipulate the table itself. The table control bar present in a browser does not appear or have a corollary on iOS.

  18. Allow us to change sharing settings on multiple "image" files at once!

    It's a HUGE pain in Box. You put 20 or 30 images into a Box note, and you want to share that note with someone at your company, but outside the team that has access to that folder. You must MANUALLY click every single image, open sharing settings, change to "View to anyone at my company".

    If Box could just make it so that if we change the sharing settings on the folder containing the images, all the images would have the same sharing settings, OR allow a multiselect of images to change sharing settings for all images at once,…

  19. Ability to Favorite and Add to Collection Read-Only Box Notes

    Currently if someone sends me a read-only link to a Box Note, I am not able to make it a favorite or add it to a collection. This makes it hard for me to keep track of those Box Notes if I want to go back to them at a later time. You should be able to save or organize Box Notes even if you have Read-Only access.

  20. Get documents into and out of Box Notes from other formats

    My organization likes Box Notes for their online-collaboration support. But when we have existing documents, we can't get them into a Box Note. And if we want to get them out, we can't do that either.

    Add import and export support to Box Notes. I'd be delighted with Markdown, but my organization can work with just about any open format. Or publish your own proprietary format. XML or JSON, we don't care! Just make it possible to get documents into and out of Box Notes.
