  1. Move checked off items to the bottom of list

    It would be fantastic if you have a list in Box note, the items you mark as "complete" get moved to the bottom of the list.

  2. Share link disclosure range for images and file previews inserted in Boxnotes

    It is possible to insert images and share links in Boxnotes and set up file previews, but there are users who can access Boxnotes but cannot see the images or previews because they do not have access to them.
    However, users who insert links or images often don't realize that they are restricted because they can see the images or previews.

    When inserting images or previews into Boxnotes, I would like to see a warning that says "Other users may not be able to see this."
    Or a message saying "Would you like to adjust the publishing range of the…

  4. Add 'undo' function when updating Box Notes

    It is good the file is automatically saved frequently. But the problem is once I delete something accidentally, I have to retype all of them again because I cannot undo what I have just done. It will be more convenient if there is such an "Undo" function like what they have in the office system. Thanks!

  5. Making Box Notes specific to Folders

    I use Box Notes as a running shared agenda with clients, however, it's difficult to switch between client's notes since they only allow for one default location to save notes. I try to save them directly in the folder the client is working out of.

    Could there be multiple save locations for notes for a specific folder? Or a way to assign it once created?

  6. Microsoft Teams and Box Notes integration

    Being able to view Box note files without login required within the Microsoft Teams desktop platform. Ideally you would also be able to edit Box notes within the MT platform or have a link that opens the note up in your Box notes desktop so you can easily find and edit the document through MT, rather than open up Box online or Box notes to dig around and find the note.

    Anyone else find the process a bit cumbersome?

  7. Update Notes prompt that appears when returning to a boxnote

    Currently the message that is displayed when a user returns to a box note is "you don't have access to this file"
    This is should be changed to something to the effect of "please refresh to work on this file" or something like that

  8. 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…

  10. Ability to right click image in Box Note to get Box link to image

    It would great if when you right click an image, if there was an option to get a Box Link to the image. Right now, when I need to pull an image to share from a BoxNote, I have to right click it, and save it to my desktop & then upload to Box.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Support Box Notes in Dark Mode

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    You cannot delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.
    It is not necessary to display Notes that are no longer relevant to the user or that they no longer need to access.

    By deleting the history, only the Notes that are relevant to you will be displayed, which will improve the efficiency of your work in Box Note.


    Box Noteの「受信トレイ」と「最近のノート」の履歴を削除する。

    ボックスノートの「受信箱」と「最近使ったノート」の履歴を削除することはできません。
    ユーザーに関係のないノートや、ユーザーがアクセスする必要がなくなったノートを表示する必要はありません。

    履歴を削除することで、自分に関係のあるノートだけが表示されるようになり、Box Noteでの作業効率が向上します。

  18. Rearrange rows of tables

    We use Box Notes for almost every meeting and use tables to display the agenda. Many meetings have set agenda templates but often the presenters or topics will be shifted based on availability.

    The ability to rearrange the rows/columns in tables would greatly reduce the amount of time I have to create a blank row/column, then copy/cut each individual cell from the row/column I intended to move to the new blank one.

  19. adding anchor link capability to Box Notes

    Hello. When creating a Table of Contents in Box Notes, it would be helpful to have an anchor links button/function for long pages, so readers don't have to scroll to find each section. Thanks!

  20. 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.
