  1. allow user to set view-only mode

    Allow me to read a box document or folder in read-only mode. If I accidentally touch or slip with the mouse - I modify the folder/document. "UNDO" will only do a little bit - but in this case I KNOW I am only browsing a folder that I will be contributing to. It's a bit of a downer to see a document marked as modified today (last modification was a year ago by the document creator) because I missed the CTRL button and typed a "c" into the text. UNDO (CTRL-Z) fixed the doc - but now it looks like…

  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. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Support Box Notes in Dark Mode

    "notes are presented in a webview, so there are always black-text-on-white-background. We’d love to have it black-on-white, which should be doable by adjusting mobile css with dark appearance" - iOS Team

  6. 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. Please add the ability to password-protect Box Notes.

    Hi..I'd really, really, really love to be able to password-protect Box Notes.

    I'm not talking about sharing things via links, rather... have docs I keep on my home computer that I regularly access on my phone. On the phone is fine -- I have the Box app set up to require FaceID to open it -- but on my home computer, there's no security (besides the password to simply log into my actual computer). It would be great if there was active protection on Notes everywhere.

    Thanks

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  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. 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,…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  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. 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.
