  1. Insert a photo in Box Note within Box Mobile

    I would like to be able to (easily) insert a PHOTO into Box Notes from the MOBILE platform.
    I know we can do this in the browser (https://community.box.com/t5/Creating-and-Editing-Box-Notes/Inserting-Images-in-Box-Notes/ta-p/46192) but it is more likely that I would take a photo of an object and have a discussion with my team about it within Box. If I am exclusively using Box mobile while at remote sites, it keeps me from easaily communicating with the team real time if I can't uplaod photos. (We currently use texting to resolve this, but then the conversation is not recorded within the project)

  2. @'ing box groups in comments

    Is there a way to @mention a box user group in the comments section? We have executive team groups of 4-7 people that need tagged in the comments for notifications to approve and discussed projects, but when you are @'ing all 7 it looks a little messy as well as remembering all of those users. Since the email addresses are linked in the box group, would it be possible to @mention that unique group name in the comment and get the same result as @'ing a single user name?
    I look forward to hearing your thoughts/feedback.

    Thank you for your feedback! We believe this feature is important and can provide significant value to the Notes product experience. However, we cannot prioritize this feature in the near term. We will keep this under consideration for our future roadmap.

  3. Is there any way to get Safari Reader support for Box notes? I just get the title when I put it in reader mode.

  5. Remove or filter out particular Box Notes from Inbox without deleting

    The Box Notes Inbox contains a long list of items that are shared with me but that I may never access again. I can't remove my collaborations because they are stored within enterprise-owned folders that are shared with the entire company at a high level (e.g. all "Projects" are shared with the entire company in case we need to reference them, but I am not part of the project team for most of them). We would like a way to remove or filter certain Box Notes from the Inbox so it is less cluttered.

  11. When selecting text in a Box Note, you get the option to make a comment related to that selection. We want the ability to @mention there.

    You can @mention someone someone in a sidebar comment on a Box Note. You can select text in a Box Note and make a comment related to that selection. But you cannot @mention someone in a comment related to a text selection.

    We have a user group that uses Workfront for that specific functionality but would shift that workflow to Box if this functionality was added.

  12. Improved project/task management

    Will be great to have some of the Dropbox paper features in Box notes.
    1. Improved checklists -- tagging people and having dates (must have)
    2. Ability to tag people within the note (great to have)
    3. Improved tables -- for ex sorting (nice to have)
    4. Creating timelines (nice to have)
    5. Adding media

  13. Insert date and time fields in Box Notes

    My office would like to use Box notes to log certain informal client interactions. We would like to create a customized Box note template for this, and we need it to include automatic current date and time field in the note header (i.e. individual note creation date and time) -- similar to the generic stock template provided by Box. However, there is currently no way to insert automatic creation date and time fields in a custom Box note template header. This should be an easy and useful enhancement.”

  14. split screen 'saving' note is in a terrible spot

    So . . . I often use a split screen on my Mac with a text on the left and Box Notes on the right. When I take notes in Box Notes, the cursor eventually descends to the bottom right of the
    split-screen window as I type. No problem there. BUT . . . then the 'saving . . . ' oval message pops up from the Box Notes program and obscures the words I'm actually typing. Then the oval messages 'saved' in the same spot. I have to hit return several times to move the text up so that…

  15. Ability to attach a metadata template to a note template

    We would like a way of creating a note template bound to a metadata template. I’ve followed the instructions to create the template and to attach metadata. However, when creating a note using that custom template, there are no metadata attached by default. I want to avoid having to add the metadata template each time after creating a note.

  16. Ability to remove read-only shared Box Notes

    When someone send you a box note link, it's automatically and permanently synced to your account's box notes as read only. Currently, there is no way to remove them, unsync, them, or hide them. This causes synced box notes to be polluted with non-editable documents which serve no purpose other than to add to clutter.

  18. 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…

  19. 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!
