  2. Collapsible folder tree/structure for Box Notes for Desktop

    As mentioned in other feedback, right now only having "Recent", "Favorites", and "Inbox" as filters makes organizing and looking through notes difficult.

    It would be interesting to either 1) integrate the user's folder tree in the Box Notes view or 2) have subfolders within "My Box Notes" show up as the structure.

    May be related to PF-02982.

  3. Images pasted in BoxNotes are not displayed due to the "Shared links expiration settings".

    If you have enabled the "Shared links expiration settings", images pasted on BoxNotes will also have that expiration date setting.
    Therefore, after the expiration date has passed, images pasted on BoxNotes will no longer be displayed in BoxNotes.
    We would like to see the specification changed so that images pasted on BoxNotes are not affected by the "Shared links expiration settings".

  4. BoxNotes app for mobile devices

    I want to create BoxNotes immediately on my mobile device, so I want a BoxNotes app for mobile devices.

  5. Ability to search box note’s content

    Box notes are currently only searchable by the title of the note. We’d like to be able to search the content of the notes in addition to the titles.

  6. Ability to unfollow Box Note when no longer needed to collaborate

    We get access to many Box Notes on a daily basis to collaborate. When the Box notes get edited, we get an update on our Box Note page with a little blue circle + an additional number on our box notes app. I'd like to stop following those Box Notes I am no longer collaborating on, so I don't receive those 'updated' notifications.

  7. 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…

  9. 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. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
