  1. 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.

  2. 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

  4. 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.

  6. Improve Box notes sharing and Home page

    Box @ IBM is easily my most used and least liked product at work. The link sharing is a horrible experience. Everyone in the company disses Box's link protection. Enabling Link Expiration by default on the shared links is the worst idea and the product manager that approved this feature should dogfood features before subjecting customers to its horrid UX. I can't easily drag drop files like in Google Drive, the home page I land is useful in 0.01% of the cases. Usually I easily spend upwards of 5 minutes just looking for files. I have taken to adding all…

  7. Need a better way to track locations of Box Notes

    Bread crumbs are very useful on BOX documents and folders to explore relevant related documents, but they don’t exist on the page of Box Notes. You see them in the index on the left, but that doesn’t correspond to the Box Note you happen to be on. I have to hunt & search if I want to see other docs in the same folder. It would be great if this functionality could be added into Box Notes.

  8. Align box note shared link experience with file/folder experience

    With Box note there is nor "copy" button, neither "email" button. This is not consistant with shared link for file or folder and requires extract actions

  10. Box Note "Active Shared Link" indicator on Sidebar Box

    The only way currently to know if a Box Note has an Active Shared Link is to go to the folder which contains it (in the regular Box.com UI, not the Box Notes UI), and look for the "Active Shared Link" icon on the row for the .boxnote file.

    I suggest adding this same icon to the sidebar box for the note in the Box Notes UI (i.e. the box you click to load the note in the main right-hand pane).

  11. I'd like to see the language in Box Notes match that in Box.

    I'd like to see the language in Box Notes match that in Box. For example, in Box Notes sharing is Get link and Invite people to edit. It would be nice if the same language was used to make learning easier. Also, It would be nice if the link dialog box was similar where you can click Copy, and also type in a person's name to send an invitation.

  16. Long-term archiving format for box notes

    Currently it is impossible to have box notes in a long-term archiving format. This may be a compliance issue.

    European GDPR has rules around data portability: it must be easy to transfer your data from one place to another. Box notes are not portable.

    Box notes can hold PII or other legal relevant information, thus making them discoverable. Hence a long term archiving format is required.

  18. Add 'Insert from Box' Option to 'Embed' Box Files within Notes

    USER STORY: I have a file (a PowerPoint, for example) that I want to reference in a Box Note -- instead of just putting a link, I want to 'embed' the file so that it's displayed in a more visual manner.

    WORKAROUND: Right now, in order to do this I have to screenshot the one-slider, then drag that image into the Box Note, then manually put the shared link for the file below it.

    It'd also be nice to be able to (at a minimum) put a shared link for a file into the 'insert link to image' option that…
