  1. Ability to copy and paste formatted text from other text editors (i.e. Word, BBEdit, etc.) into Box Notes better

    Our users experience a lot of trouble when trying to copy and paste formatted text from other text editors (Word, BBEdit, etc.) no matter the format they try to paste it in. They typically always lose numbering, bulleting, and more.

  2. Image Shared Link Permissions should Match the Box Note's Shared Link Permission

    For example, when a Box Note's shared link is set to 'people with the link', all images in the Box Note should also automatically be updated to be 'people with the link' links.

    The current issue is that when I set a Box Note's link to 'people with the link' but my company's shared link default is 'people in your company', all the embedded images in the Box Note are still set to 'people in your company', meaning if a non-authenticated user accesses the 'people with the link' Box Note link, they'll see 'insufficient privileges' for all the images in…

    Thank you for the feedback. We understand that the current permissions behavior for Box Notes images is not necessarily intuitive, and are actively looking into ways to improve that user experience. We don’t yet have a timeline for delivery, but will update here when its available.

  3. Ability to Archive Old Box Notes

    Or at least add different view categories so that all the notes don't just appear under Recents

  4. Copy and Paste formatting of bullets to e-mail

    Formatting does not translate from Box Notes to e-mail well, especially with things like bulleted or numbered lists

  6. Support Password-Protected Shared Links for Box Notes

    There's a known issue/limitation currently (https://community.box.com/t5/Managing-Your-Content/Box-Notes-Notices-and-Known-Limitations/ta-p/340) where Box Notes do not work correctly when the shared link is password-protected.

    REQUEST: Allow Box Notes to have password-protected shared links just like any other file on Box.

  7. Support Markdown tags in Box Notes.

    We want to be able to use Markdown tags in Box Notes. On a side note, Preview for MD files currently does not support UTF-8. Supporting Markdown in Box Notes will help as a workaround.

    Although we’ve heard this before, Markdown is not an area we plan to go into for Box Notes.

  8. Enable Tasks in Box Notes

    Client is a heavy user of Box Notes (for project plans, team meetings, checklists, lists and other). They'd like to be able to assign tasks related to those lists/activities/other from the Box Note to collabs.

    Thank you for the feedback. Adding Tasks to Box Notes is functionality that we are actively researching, but is not currently on the roadmap. Please continue to submit feedback and use cases, and we’ll update if and when this becomes a priority.

  9. Ability to highlight single column in box notes.

    You can't currently highlight a single column in box notes, but you can highlight a single row. This would be helpful for formatting and organization.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate this request on a one-off basis. Thank you for your suggestion!

  10. Tables - Allow Merging Cells in Box Note Tables

    A standard function when working with tables (in Excel and other tools) is a basic 'merge cells' feature that allows multiple cells (whether in a row or column) to be merged into one to function more as a grouping of multiple rows/columns. Box Notes don't currently support merging table cells.

    REQUEST: Support merging 2 or more cells in a row/column within a Box Note.

    This is something we’re unlikely to do. We want tables to be there for basic use cases. For anything more advanced, users will need to use a dedicated tool.

  16. Add support to import notes with specific file types (such as .ENEX) from other systems like Evernote

    Implementing a more seamless way to migrate their data would help us adopt and use Box Notes as our main repository for notes and note taking.

    This is a resource-intensive request which is not on our short-term roadmap. We will update you if anything changes.

  17. Native Picture Storage - No More 'Box Notes Images' Folder

    Adding a photo to a Box note currently creates a 'Box Notes Images' folder in the parent folder where the Box Note is located. This seems somewhat odd and unintuitive, especially with the shared link permission quirks with the photos.

    To resolve this, Box Notes should natively 'store' the pictures within the Box Note itself and not as part of a separate 'Box Notes Images' folder.

  18. Notes Desktop App - Add App to Mac & Windows App Stores

    We push users toward downloading software from the Mac and Windows App Stores, especially the Mac App Store as that is Apple's officially 'approved' method for downloading software to a computer.

    We intend Box Notes to be for casual documents. Meeting notes, project plans, etc.

    It’s not intended for flyers, fancy collateral, perfectly formatted PDFs. For those, we still recommend a program like Microsoft Word.

    We do not plan to add these types of things to Box Notes.

  20. Notes Desktop App - Allow Multiple Windows

    Users may want to have multiple Notes open at the same time. Request is to allow a user to 'double click' a note in the list on the left sidebar to open it in its own window (exactly the same UX that the native Mac Notes app already has).
