  2. Ability to Favorite and Add to Collection Read-Only Box Notes

    Currently if someone sends me a read-only link to a Box Note, I am not able to make it a favorite or add it to a collection. This makes it hard for me to keep track of those Box Notes if I want to go back to them at a later time. You should be able to save or organize Box Notes even if you have Read-Only access.

  3. Assign Tasks to Box Notes

    We want to be able to assign Tasks to a Box Note similar to the way you can add a General Task or Approval Task to a document.

  4. Navigation of Box Notes

    We absolutely love using the Boxnotes in many ways - including as an index for projects that have for example, many presentations that are similar but different. We insert a preview and check through and check through versions to find slides we want. Some of our Box Notes therefore get very big and it would be great if there was the functionality to insert contents ad the top, or to collapse and expand based on the text style. We don't want much extra functionality - simplicity is the name of the game with Box Note.

  5. Box Note Table Functions

    We want to be able to use equations/functions in Box Notes Tables similar to Excel or Google Sheets functionality. For example, typing AVERAGE = (B2:B4) into cell B5 would find the average of cells B2 through B4.

    This would be a very helpful update.

  6. Box Notes inbox

    I use Boxnote all day long for meeting notes, agenda, drafting documents asynchronously, etc. It's great. However, I would love to see a more streamlined inbox format so I can find relevant boxnotes more easily. I can only see 5 boxnotes listed before I have to start scrolling down the page because there are three lines of text: the file name, when it was updated, and what folder it's in. All I need is the name. If the other lines and the extra blank space were to be removed, I'd be able to see many more listed. I'd like to…

  8. Feature requests

    I wish Box notes were more like DropBox Paper. Top things I like:

    • The editor is essentially a live Markdown editor so nearly all formatting doesn’t require leaving the keyboard.
    • Full support for Markdown export.
    • Comments can be attached to each paragraph - so much better than the one thread per Box note.
    • Links are properly clickable without the silly ‘link bubble’
    • Auto-generated ToC

  9. Allowing someone to edit a box note should mean they can view images

    We're often sharing box notes across teams that are used to take review notes, including lots of screencaps. But using a share link that gives someone in my company the ability to edit a box note does NOT give them the authority to view the images in the box note. Which makes the share link all but useless, because we still need to give all of them explicit access to the folder. And it makes no sense, because they can delete images that other people have added, even though they aren't allowed to view the image!

  10. 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.

  11. Allow us to change sharing settings on multiple "image" files at once!

    It's a HUGE pain in Box. You put 20 or 30 images into a Box note, and you want to share that note with someone at your company, but outside the team that has access to that folder. You must MANUALLY click every single image, open sharing settings, change to "View to anyone at my company".

    If Box could just make it so that if we change the sharing settings on the folder containing the images, all the images would have the same sharing settings, OR allow a multiselect of images to change sharing settings for all images at once,…

  12. change font style

    It would be great if we could have more text customization options. Especially changing fonts. Font style can alter your workflow, it's really important for me, and i think that for others as well.

  13. 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.

    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…

  15. 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.

  16. Add a reminder function to box notes

    Add the ability to set a reminder either push through the app or an email. For example I keep a to do list in notes or there are reports I need to update weekly. If I had a reminder then I could go back to the note and complete whatever I needed.

  17. 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…

  18. Convert BoxNote to PDF, DOCX, etc...

    BoxNotes would be much more useful if there was an ability to able to generate a PDF or other document format that can be stored in a more traditional method in Box. Some customer that work in the regulated space can't use BoxNotes for various reasons. But, in many cases there is an issue with the fact that BoxNotes does not follow the same retention capabilities we have in Governance. Also, Keysafe does not support BoxNotes, so it may be a workaround if BoxNotes were archivable.

    The initial idea would be to support PDF generation, but i can also see…
