  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. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Save box notes in collections

    Hi Box Team,

    currently I can mark a box note as favorite and it will eventually show up in my favorite folder. However, it would be great if I could add box notes to one or more of my collections. This allows me to better structure the information available on Box.

    Thanks

    Hi there!

    We just released the Collections in Notes feature this week. You should now see the Collections menu item when you go to the “…” menu in your Notes app (next to the share button). Hope this helps!

  13. 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.

  14. Add a reminder function to box notes

    Add the ability to set a reminder either push through the app or an email. For example I keep a to do list in notes or there are reports I need to update weekly. If I had a reminder then I could go back to the note and complete whatever I needed.

  15. Navigation of Box Notes

    We absolutely love using the Boxnotes in many ways - including as an index for projects that have for example, many presentations that are similar but different. We insert a preview and check through and check through versions to find slides we want. Some of our Box Notes therefore get very big and it would be great if there was the functionality to insert contents ad the top, or to collapse and expand based on the text style. We don't want much extra functionality - simplicity is the name of the game with Box Note.

  16. 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.

  17. Box Notes inbox

    I use Boxnote all day long for meeting notes, agenda, drafting documents asynchronously, etc. It's great. However, I would love to see a more streamlined inbox format so I can find relevant boxnotes more easily. I can only see 5 boxnotes listed before I have to start scrolling down the page because there are three lines of text: the file name, when it was updated, and what folder it's in. All I need is the name. If the other lines and the extra blank space were to be removed, I'd be able to see many more listed. I'd like to…

  19. We want a function to divide files created with Box Notes by category (tag).

    [Background]
    Box Notes is harder to use than OneNote.
    The reason is that it is difficult to find files from INBOX because files cannot be divided by categories (tags, folders, etc.).

  20. 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,…
