  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. When I use the option to hide the left sidebar, the toolbar icons at the top are duplicated, overlapping each other.

    This is an accessibility bug I think. I use large fonts on a Mac, and when I use Box in my Safari browser and use show/hide of the left sidebar, I wind up with double the top toolbar icons - overlapping each other, and only half are actionable.

  4. The ability to zoom in on BoxNotes from mobile

    When small picture attached in the BoxNotes, user is often not able to see the detail as zoom-in is not supported. I need to go back to my laptop every time and that is inconvenient.

  5. 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…

  7. reference point within box note

    Option to insert anchor/reference point in a Box Note
    Box Notes can be lengthy and would be great to be able to insert an anchor within the Box Note so that when directing someone to that spot, they aren't searching the entire Note to find the spot.

  9. 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

    Hi there – Although we understand the need for unlimited page width, we do not plan to extend our existing full width experience. We will reconsider this experience once we have additional feedback and use cases.

    As a qualitative researcher, I'd like to be able to collate annotations in Box Notes so it's easy to grab all of them w/o having to copy and paste each one. Right now, I can only copy and paste some of them, but for others, while I can read them, I can't click on the text to copy and paste (the annotation kind of drops from view). This would mimic some of the functionality in the Reviewing Pane in Word, where you can see all the comments made in one spot and copy and paste from there. Note that I'm…

  11. 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.

  12. Can we connect our box account to Notion?

    Notion is a very helpful note application that provides components such as databases, kanban boards, calendars and reminders. It's very easy to use them as a task manager for teamwork. Our team like Box and put all our files on Box, but the function of Box Notes is a little bit limited. We have to use other apps to assign work and manage the tasks, but sometimes these tasks is related to some files. I hope Box can support the account connection to Notion or maybe add some more functions like @ member or task dashboard in Box Notes.
    Thank…

  15. Add Multimedia Embedding Functionality

    The minimal approach to Box Notes is great. There are times where I'd like to use my note as a report and insert embedded HTML code for video or document preview that pulls from Box documents.

  16. 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.

  17. Add "new note" to long-press/3D Touch option in iOS Box app.

    Creating notes in the iOS app really is clunky. As it seems sa standalone Box Notes app for mobile isn't planned, having an option to "create note" in the long press/3D touch menu would be great. At the moment i don't use Box Notes at all, my quick captures & notes go in Drafts or Evernote.

  18. 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.

  19. Copy button in Box Notes Shared Link

    When you get a shared link in Box, it automatically copies it and has a "copy" button front and center - would love the same thing for Box Notes.

  20. We would like to be able to edit inserted preview shared link materials with Office Online within a Box Note.

    Recently, a function to embed a preview of a shared link in Box Note has been released, this feature makes it easier to use files for meetings. On the other hand, we would like to be able to edit everything within the Box Note to complete our processes without having to open another program.
