  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. 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.

  3. 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.).

  4. On Box Notes collaboration modal, display more than 5 candidate users when inviting users.

    Currently, up to 5 users are displayed on collaboration modal of Box Notes, which is far less than 50 users of webapp. We want Notes to parallel webapp on this.

  6. Create a hyperlink to a point within the same note

    Box Notes are wonderful, but after a certain length, they can become unwieldy to navigate. Other services, including Dropbox, offer the ability to hyperlink to a headlines section (text marked as H1, H2) to create a functional contents segment.

    Please could we have the ability to hyperlink within documents, at leas to text tagged as a header

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  11. Using number formatting breaks if you don't want an inserted space or image to be numbered

    When I try to format a document using numbering, the sequence breaks if you don't continue the format. In Word, you can restart at 1 or continue numbering if you have a new section of numbers. This forces us to use bullets instead. Sometimes, we'd actually like to use the option of numbering when we are numbering steps.

  12. Box Note Unlimited Page Width

    Right now, the box notes page width is fixed. This is particularly frustrating when creating tables in a box note that needs more than a few columns.

    It would be amazing to have the width of the box notes to be unlimited to allow for tables to have many columns

  13. 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…

  14. The menu of actions [link/comment] on text selection is confusing

    After trying to post a link, and by mistake making a comment instead, I realized that that my confusion is caused by the fact that in HTML, you insert a link with <a> as the first character... so the icon Box presents for a comment should not have "a" in it.

  15. Tables - need change the background color

    I think the table need to be change background color. Background color can use to make table header or important table cell.

  16. transferring annotations

    Hi. I'm a professor and I created a BoxNote with a text I want my students to annotate collaboratively. I added some annotations, comments, and hyperlinks to get them started. Then I copied this BoxNote to another folder for a second section of the class. The hyperlinks transferred, but the annotations and comments did not. It would be cool if BoxNote supported the total transfer of material in a text, not just the hyperlinks. AND I can't copy and paste all those annotations so now I have to type it all up from scratch. That's a drag. Please design a…

  17. Increase number of concurrent Box Notes editors

    Box Notes currently allows only 20 concurrent editors. For a conference or other large gathering it may be useful to have 100+. Please consider increasing the limit, or replacing the hard limit with an in-UI warning (e.g., "You have more than 30 people editing and performance may be reduced").

    In the meantime, also please clearly document the maximum concurrent user limit and behavior in the KB.

    Thank you for the feedback. Increasing the number of concurrent editors on Box Notes is not currently planned in our roadmap. We will continue to monitor and may revisit this in a future planning cycle, based on customer feedback.

    In the meantime, we will look into updating our documentation to make sure both our limits and the user experience are clear.
