  1. Add custom images by browsing to images already stored on Box.

    Allow users to add custom images by browsing to images already stored on Box. Canvas currently only allows users to import custom images from a computer. This increases the complexity of using Canvas, decreases the value of storing media files in Box, and, makes Canvas seem more like 3rd party tool than a Box feature/function.

  2. UX is slightly different than Box Notes

    Notes from left pane takes you to your notes inbox. Canvas creates a blank canvas in your default save. It would be a more congruent experience if the UX matched

  3. Explain navigation mode

    Choosing the navigation mode (trackpad or mouse) is not evident and the navigation is not natural when you are on trackpad mode but using a mouse. Ther should be an interface explaining it is possible to change it

  4. Reporting Tools for Box Relay and Box Canvas Via Console and API/SDK

    It would be nice to have a report available in the admin section for Relay and Canvas, as well as access via REST API / SDK so we can generate our own reports.

  5. Create content "frames" in Canvas

    Add a "frame" option as a new structural element distinct from a shape. Frames would allow you to move all the content inside it, and when you zoom out on a board, the caption of the frames should display so you can easily see all the frames and what they're about.

  7. When accessed by non-editors, the screen cannot be moved horizontally

    When viewed by someone other than the editor, it is not possible to move left or right.
    You can zoom in and out on the screen.
    You can also scroll up and down with the mouse scroll.
    Since there is no edit bar, I want you to change the mouse pointer to the palm icon from the beginning

  8. Upload docs to Canvas, automatic creation of repository folder.

    It would be helpful to have the ability to upload documents to steps in a Canvas workflow. Once uploaded, there should be folder within my box instance where those files are stored.

  9. Upload an image as a background

    Need the ability to upload an image as a background. This will help with any use case for ideation sessions or anywhere you want co-workers to move things around on a map, grid, four-box etc.

  10. Box Canvas user tags

    We would like to turn off the user tag that follows their mouse movements in Canvas so that each person's usage and ideas can be unanimous.

  11. canvas sharing outside the organisation

    Currently one of the great things about other canvas style products is to be able to share it outside the organisation and to be able to invite a guest to contribute/edit the document.

    Currently the external user needs to have a box account I believe.

    Also a nice to have would be the ability to copy from Miro to Canvas

  13. Add ability to add symbols or words on different parts of the post-its on canvas

    We're using the canvas to plan project activities and sequence them using a pull planning methodology. It would be helpful if we could edit the top part or bottom part of the note that is currently unused margin to add comments.

    We'd like to add durations like 2w, 1d, etc or a symbol that means something in one corner or a champion in another. Sort of like headers and footers on a word document but for the notes.

  14. Need to be able to give Connectors a Name

    Typically, a diamond shape indicates a decision or two pathways someone can take. To create a proper diagram, you need to be able to name those pathways like Yes & No or True & False. There needs to be a way to name the line without having to add a separate text box near the line.

  16. Enable by default the option to create a new Canvas from existing template

    When creating a new Canvas board, it would be great to have the option to select from a template enabled by default. This feature is easy to miss when not enabled for new users. The option to disable/enable can remain, but it should be enabled by default for users initially.

  17. Copy/Paste on Word/Porwerpoint

    Copy/Paste the work made on Canvas on an Office document could be super useful.
    At least deleting the code when you paste it now would be nice

  18. Reminder to migrate files PSU Box when a faculty leaves PSU

    I created and uploaded some vmware images to PSU Boxes. And I shared several links to files at PSU Box. When I leaved PSU, I forget to migrate my files to our file hosting platform. Therefore, all my files are deleted and lost.

  19. The Connector arrow needs to touch the edge of the Triangle Shape

    Currently, when you draw a connector line to or from a triangle shape, the arrow doesn't actually start or end at the triangles border. It appears it just stops and isn't connected because its connecting to an invisible square border around the triangle.
