  1. Warn users that annotations will not be added to a Word document as comments

    Since Annotations do not get added to Word documents as comments, a warning should be presented to users stating this to avoid any confusion by the user who may be expecting this to happen.

  2. I want to switch pages by swiping pdf or powerpoint on iPad even when in the middle of filling in annotations.

    Sometimes I want to see the other page of pdf when I am in the middle of filling in annotation. However, the current behavior of Box's annotation, you need to save the annotation to move to the other page of pdf or powerpoint.

  3. Want to have an option to skip the "Save" button

    Every time a user finishes writing, the user needs to click Save button. As it is not intuitive and effective so it should be the same UX as iPad's markup (Apple's standard annotation)

  4. Possibility to share with non-Box users annotated files including the annotations.

    Annotating files, especially pdfs, inside Box would be much more useful to me if I could share the annotated file, including the annotations, with non-Box users. A setting on the shared link dialog like "Allow persons with the link to view annotations" would be a great enhancement.
    Thanks

  5. Ability to turn off comment function

    There is no way to turn off the Comment feature as a default setting. When using a touchscreen laptop, every touch designed to navigate triggers the comment function. This requires manually turning off the Comment function on every single document when using the touchscreen, functionally eliminating using the touchscreen as a viable UI. PLEASE either allow the Comment function to be turned off, or default to Flagging when a laptop touchscreen is detected.

  6. Editing existing tag names

    It would be helpful to edit an existing tag name, to make it more descriptive, and have that propagate to everything already tagged. For example, I would like to change a first-round tag of "Minutes" to something more descriptive, such as "Minutes Admin Meetings." Right now, I can simply create a new tag and retag all the appropriate items with the prior. HOWEVER, every time that begin to type the name of the new tag, the old not-used one will keep appearing.

    If editing an existing name is too complicated, is there a way to delete an old unused tag…

  8. Multiple markup, and Single comment, on annotation

    If we only need to write a comment in one place after multiple markups for annotation, the work will go faster.

    When annotating the same requirement in multiple places, the same annotation is currently marked up in multiple places and the same content is written multiple times.

  9. Annotation lock function

    When annotating by multiple people, one annotation disappears or a conflict problem occurs.
    Also, if multiple people annotate, the drawn parts will overlap, making it difficult to understand.

  10. I need to be able to tag items easier and have the tags be a different color than the file name

    I would like to be able to add tools to the upper tool bar; IE on the last program the "tag" feature was in the quick select tool bar at the top of the page. I use this to mark reviewed quotes once i have reviewed and entered that info into the bid. Having it a couple clicks away slows me down.

    Additionally, the tags used to show up as blue, which helped our team quicker see those quotes that had been reviewed VS those that still needed to be seen. Can we make the tags blue again?

    When I upload a new document on box.com and I tried to tag all colloborators at the same time, I seems cannot do that. I would need to tag one person at a time to see my new updated file.

    In other platforms, I used @all or @board then it will notify all colloborators at once. This will save lots of my admin time to tag 30 different people in my team.

    Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  12. Add attachments to a comment

    When I mention some images or files for reference in a comment, I would like to add them as attachments, so whoever read the comment can easily understand what I'm referring to

  14. copy and paste

    I've switched over from Dropbox where I was able to copy a comment placed on a file via the app

    Please include that feature (3 dots in the right corner of every comment) in the app to be able to copy the text to paste elsewhere

  15. Adding a granular sharing option for Annotations

    I would like to use annotations as a personal note. It would be great if an annotation is not shared with anyone by default and a user can choose an option to share/show it with collaborators.

  16. Box for iOS Annotations

    The pen and and marker options when using the Annotations feature within Box for iOS is limited as the lines are often too thick and obscure information on the documents used by our customers.

    The suggestion here is to add a line thickness slider for both the marker and pen options so that users can experience the same pencil thin annotated lines in the Box for iOS Mobile Application as they do when annotating via Box.com
