  1. Add 'Insert from Box' Option to 'Embed' Box Files within Notes

    USER STORY: I have a file (a PowerPoint, for example) that I want to reference in a Box Note -- instead of just putting a link, I want to 'embed' the file so that it's displayed in a more visual manner.

    WORKAROUND: Right now, in order to do this I have to screenshot the one-slider, then drag that image into the Box Note, then manually put the shared link for the file below it.

    It'd also be nice to be able to (at a minimum) put a shared link for a file into the 'insert link to image' option that…

  2. Enlarge checkboxes on mobile clients.

    On mobile it is easier to tap the text of the item instead of the check box, causing the keyboard to pop up, etc.

  3. Ability to lock sections of a Box Note

    Currently, if a user has edit permissions on a Box Note, they can edit any part of it. We would like the ability to "lock" certain blocks of text and table headers in a note so that other users do not modify or delete these accidentally.

    We’ll keep this in mind! However, this is not currently planned.

  4. Mobile App for Box Notes (Standalone)

  5. 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.

    Box Notes at its core is a collaborative product and so many features don’t make sense in a ‘Hide Collaborators’ environment. We’d suggest turning off ‘Hide Collabs’.

  7. Checklists - Auto-Check Indented Checklists when Parent is Checked

    In a Box Notes checklist, if there are indented lines, have them auto-check when the parent line is checked.

    Interesting feedback. Not planned, but good to keep in mind when we improve checkboxes and the editor in the future.

  9. 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.

  13. Enhance UX for Viewing Box Note when Not Signed In

    Currently, when a user clicks an open shared link (a 'people with the link' link) for a Box Note, it opens in their browser as read-only (as it should). However, the confusing part for end users is if they in fact do have 'edit' access to the Box Note, it appears to them that they don't, but that's because there isn't an active browser session.

    REQUEST: Add a 'log in' or 'Need to edit? Sign in here' - type button in the header to make the UX better.

    Scenario 1: Example with Active Login Session for Box:
    This scenario is

    Thanks for highlighting. We could consider a login button on the Read-only page, a big catch would be that we wouldn’t know ahead of time if the person has edit access until they log in. So for people without access, logging in doesn’t help them.

    I don’t think we’ll do this. Unfortunately, users will just have to know they need to sign in.

    We will do our best to support any operating system-level support for a stylus. But the demand for this is more rare, so it is Not Planned for our roadmap.

  17. Tables - Ability to Copy a Row and Paste into a Table in A Different Box Note

    Requesting ability to copy a Box Note row and paste into another Box Note table (preserving formatting and links). Currently, you can paste into a new table this way, not an existing table in our testing.

    Rationale: Ease of use, consistent ability to cut and paste

  18. 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.
