  2. Provide link to Box root or parent folder from within Notes view

    While one can navigate to the parent folder when in preview/edit mode on a Box Note by clicking the ellipsis, it's not obvious to those that don’t know about it and can’t find it.

    This lack of navigation is likely because of the reliance on using tabs to differentiate notes from the rest of Box. However, this has its shortcomings, as it relies on opening up notes from within Box. I have some bookmarks that go directly to a Box note, so I could never before find a way to get out of the notes view when opening notes this…

  4. Shared Link Comments

    We share our creative to our clients using shareable links. It would be great if non-box users had the ability to make comments on the files shared. We are switching over from dropbox and that was a feature that we use with our clients on a very regular basis. It gives us the ability to have all of their feedback in one place.

    Please let me know if this is doable. It's top priority for our team :)

    Thank you!

  6. Should be able to save note mails. Like what we able to save in the notes database.

    As we are able to store the notes mail as with attachment in the notes database, similarly we should be able to save mails with attachments

  7. Backup Box Notes

    I would like to have the ability to create a backup of my Box Notes or at least label version history (e.g. add a "v1.2" tag at a certain point in history).

    I have tried using the Copy feature to copy the Box Note, but the copy does not retain the comments, annotations, or history.
    I have tried copying the content into Word to no avail.
    And there is no download button for Box Notes.

  10. Make error message more apparent when slash or back slash is used in Box Notes' title

    When slash or back slash is used in the title of Box Notes, it suddenly changes back to its original title as those characters cannot be used.
    An exclamation mark icon quietly appears in the right side of the title, but unless I hover over my mouse pointer, it is not apparent why it changed back my title. Please show this error message more apparent (maybe always show it for the first 10 seconds) and/or color exclamation mark icon in red, so that the users can notice what went wrong.

  13. Ability to upload a new version file with a Box Note.

    Allow existing files to be uploaded with a different file type for next version (e.g. existing word file can get uploaded with a box note for a new version).

  14. Find in Page support for Box Notes

    Add “Find in Page” text search for Box Notes. Even if you have infinite scroll i want to search a long box note for a keyword and jump to that location in the box note document

  15. Add avility to highlight differences between any 2 versions of BoxNotes.

    At this time, highlight is available but it is just once and never appear again.

    This idea makes it possible to view differences between the current version and the version one generation ago by showing hilights permanentily . Sure, any 2 versions of BoxNotes are better.

  16. Disable Box Notes for Individuals Outside the Organization

    It would be great if there were separate buttons to disable Box Notes either completely for everyone, or just for people outside of the organization. We use Box Notes internally for meeting planning, and we have this one client who uses it consistently to provide data, but we would really love it if she was prevented from doing so while those of us who work here could still use the feature for meeting prep.

  17. Create new Box Note using boxnote.new

    Similar to how other services like MS Word have word.new, it would be great to have boxnote.new to create a new Box Note from the URL

  18. Search Existing Templates when creating a new Box Note from a Template

    As a Box user, when I am creating a new Box Note from a template, I want to be able to search existing templates (by template name), so that I can easily re-use existing templates created by others in my organization instead of scrolling through the template list.

  20. git-like ‘RAW’ mode for Box Notes

    When I have a Boxnote with a trailing backslash (’\’) a copy-and-paste into an xterm (Linux X11, Mac OS Xquartz), it converts the backslash to a control character.

    When I copy a Boxnote with a backslash I get the following:

    “”“

    !/bin/env bash

    echo “Hello World!” \
    <A0>“The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”
    “”“

    And the string ‘<A0>’ is highlighted.

    It appears to me that Boxnote is interpreting a backslash at the end of a line as a ‘backslash<A0>’ when copy-pasted into an Xterm using vim. I tested the placement by putting a backslash in the middle…
