  1. 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…

  2. Tables - need change the background color

    I think the table need to be change background color. Background color can use to make table header or important table cell.

  3. 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)

  4. 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…

  5. Create a hyperlink to a point within the same note

    Box Notes are wonderful, but after a certain length, they can become unwieldy to navigate. Other services, including Dropbox, offer the ability to hyperlink to a headlines section (text marked as H1, H2) to create a functional contents segment.

    Please could we have the ability to hyperlink within documents, at leas to text tagged as a header

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to upload a new version file with a Box Note.

    Allow existing files to be uploaded with a different file type for next version (e.g. existing word file can get uploaded with a box note for a new version).

  8. The ability to take a picture directly from Box Notes

    As-is
    Box Capture needs few steps to upload a picture to Box Notes
    1. Take a picture and upload by Box Capture
    2. Activate shared link and paste it in Box Notes

    What it should be
    Box Notes has the ability to take picture and paste it to Box Notes directly
    1. Take Picture in Box Notes and sync the same permission as Box Notes

  10. Add avility to highlight differences between any 2 versions of BoxNotes.

    At this time, highlight is available but it is just once and never appear again.

    This idea makes it possible to view differences between the current version and the version one generation ago by showing hilights permanentily . Sure, any 2 versions of BoxNotes are better.

  11. Disable Box Notes for Individuals Outside the Organization

    It would be great if there were separate buttons to disable Box Notes either completely for everyone, or just for people outside of the organization. We use Box Notes internally for meeting planning, and we have this one client who uses it consistently to provide data, but we would really love it if she was prevented from doing so while those of us who work here could still use the feature for meeting prep.

  12. Create new Box Note using boxnote.new

    Similar to how other services like MS Word have word.new, it would be great to have boxnote.new to create a new Box Note from the URL

  13. Should be able to save note mails. Like what we able to save in the notes database.

    As we are able to store the notes mail as with attachment in the notes database, similarly we should be able to save mails with attachments

  14. We would like to be able to edit inserted preview shared link materials with Office Online within a Box Note.

    Recently, a function to embed a preview of a shared link in Box Note has been released, this feature makes it easier to use files for meetings. On the other hand, we would like to be able to edit everything within the Box Note to complete our processes without having to open another program.

  15. 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.”

  17. Make error message more apparent when slash or back slash is used in Box Notes' title

    When slash or back slash is used in the title of Box Notes, it suddenly changes back to its original title as those characters cannot be used.
    An exclamation mark icon quietly appears in the right side of the title, but unless I hover over my mouse pointer, it is not apparent why it changed back my title. Please show this error message more apparent (maybe always show it for the first 10 seconds) and/or color exclamation mark icon in red, so that the users can notice what went wrong.

  18. Ability to identify "who wrote" in Box Notes

    We would like BoxNotes to see who writes note lines like OneNote does. This can make easier for users to let other users know who leave comments without typing their name.

  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!
