  1. We want a function to divide files created with Box Notes by category (tag).

    [Background]
    Box Notes is harder to use than OneNote.
    The reason is that it is difficult to find files from INBOX because files cannot be divided by categories (tags, folders, etc.).

  2. Box Note Unlimited Page Width

    Right now, the box notes page width is fixed. This is particularly frustrating when creating tables in a box note that needs more than a few columns.

    It would be amazing to have the width of the box notes to be unlimited to allow for tables to have many columns

    Hi there – Although we understand the need for unlimited page width, we do not plan to extend our existing full width experience. We will reconsider this experience once we have additional feedback and use cases.

  3. Add header and title to Box Note table feature

    The customer would like to be able to fix certain parts of Box Notes to be visible at all times.
    e.g header(row, column etc) of tables ,the title of section

    As you fill in Box Notes, the page scrolls down naturally and then parts of Box Notes above become invisible whether they are a "header" or a "title" of table.
    The customer wants these to be visible at all times even if you scroll down.

    An example would be like the "subject" part at the top of an email in Outlook, which is something that is always visible regardless of…

  4. On Box Notes collaboration modal, display more than 5 candidate users when inviting users.

    Currently, up to 5 users are displayed on collaboration modal of Box Notes, which is far less than 50 users of webapp. We want Notes to parallel webapp on this.

  5. The menu of actions [link/comment] on text selection is confusing

    After trying to post a link, and by mistake making a comment instead, I realized that that my confusion is caused by the fact that in HTML, you insert a link with <a> as the first character... so the icon Box presents for a comment should not have "a" in it.

  6. transferring annotations

    Hi. I'm a professor and I created a BoxNote with a text I want my students to annotate collaboratively. I added some annotations, comments, and hyperlinks to get them started. Then I copied this BoxNote to another folder for a second section of the class. The hyperlinks transferred, but the annotations and comments did not. It would be cool if BoxNote supported the total transfer of material in a text, not just the hyperlinks. AND I can't copy and paste all those annotations so now I have to type it all up from scratch. That's a drag. Please design a…

  9. Box Notes Export or Download to Common Formats

    It would be great if Box Notes supported a simple way to Download/Export into non-Box format like plain text, html, markdown, rtf, or Word. I am hesitant to leverage Box Notes until this feature is present.

  10. Add Multimedia Embedding Functionality

    The minimal approach to Box Notes is great. There are times where I'd like to use my note as a report and insert embedded HTML code for video or document preview that pulls from Box documents.

  13. Add "new note" to long-press/3D Touch option in iOS Box app.

    Creating notes in the iOS app really is clunky. As it seems sa standalone Box Notes app for mobile isn't planned, having an option to "create note" in the long press/3D touch menu would be great. At the moment i don't use Box Notes at all, my quick captures & notes go in Drafts or Evernote.

  14. Using number formatting breaks if you don't want an inserted space or image to be numbered

    When I try to format a document using numbering, the sequence breaks if you don't continue the format. In Word, you can restart at 1 or continue numbering if you have a new section of numbers. This forces us to use bullets instead. Sometimes, we'd actually like to use the option of numbering when we are numbering steps.

  17. Copy button in Box Notes Shared Link

    When you get a shared link in Box, it automatically copies it and has a "copy" button front and center - would love the same thing for Box Notes.

  18. Add fixed-width font options

    Ticket # INC4849532 - Customer wants to use Box Notes to write documents that contain code-snippets and excerpts from logs. They would like to use a fixed-width font for these snippets, but Box Notes doesn't allow them to select font and there's no style for fixed-width.

    The issue is the same as the one described in this forum post: https://community.box.com/t5/Web-App-Forum/Boxnote-fixed-width-font/td-p/31194

  20. Get documents into and out of Box Notes from other formats

    My organization likes Box Notes for their online-collaboration support. But when we have existing documents, we can't get them into a Box Note. And if we want to get them out, we can't do that either.

    Add import and export support to Box Notes. I'd be delighted with Markdown, but my organization can work with just about any open format. Or publish your own proprietary format. XML or JSON, we don't care! Just make it possible to get documents into and out of Box Notes.
