  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. Support Box Notes in Dark Mode

    "notes are presented in a webview, so there are always black-text-on-white-background. We’d love to have it black-on-white, which should be doable by adjusting mobile css with dark appearance" - iOS Team

  4. Spell checking in actions comment box

    You need to enable spell checking in the actions for a document. This is very frustrating when you are trying to quickly respond to or post a comment.

  5. Create Pages and collapsable sections within Box Notes

    Add a feature that allows multiple Pages and Sections within a single Box Note, similar to OneNote.

    Also add a feature that allows for a collapsible section within a single Box Note - for example to use for different topics at an event, or different days at a conference - instead of making a new Note for each topic/day.

  6. Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    Delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.

    You cannot delete the history of "Inbox" and "Recent Notes" in Box Note.
    It is not necessary to display Notes that are no longer relevant to the user or that they no longer need to access.

    By deleting the history, only the Notes that are relevant to you will be displayed, which will improve the efficiency of your work in Box Note.


    Box Noteの「受信トレイ」と「最近のノート」の履歴を削除する。

    ボックスノートの「受信箱」と「最近使ったノート」の履歴を削除することはできません。
    ユーザーに関係のないノートや、ユーザーがアクセスする必要がなくなったノートを表示する必要はありません。

    履歴を削除することで、自分に関係のあるノートだけが表示されるようになり、Box Noteでの作業効率が向上します。

  7. Rearrange rows of tables

    We use Box Notes for almost every meeting and use tables to display the agenda. Many meetings have set agenda templates but often the presenters or topics will be shifted based on availability.

    The ability to rearrange the rows/columns in tables would greatly reduce the amount of time I have to create a blank row/column, then copy/cut each individual cell from the row/column I intended to move to the new blank one.

  8. adding anchor link capability to Box Notes

    Hello. When creating a Table of Contents in Box Notes, it would be helpful to have an anchor links button/function for long pages, so readers don't have to scroll to find each section. Thanks!

  9. 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.

  11. Ability to Favorite and Add to Collection Read-Only Box Notes

    Currently if someone sends me a read-only link to a Box Note, I am not able to make it a favorite or add it to a collection. This makes it hard for me to keep track of those Box Notes if I want to go back to them at a later time. You should be able to save or organize Box Notes even if you have Read-Only access.

  12. Assign Tasks to Box Notes

    We want to be able to assign Tasks to a Box Note similar to the way you can add a General Task or Approval Task to a document.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Box Notes inbox

    I use Boxnote all day long for meeting notes, agenda, drafting documents asynchronously, etc. It's great. However, I would love to see a more streamlined inbox format so I can find relevant boxnotes more easily. I can only see 5 boxnotes listed before I have to start scrolling down the page because there are three lines of text: the file name, when it was updated, and what folder it's in. All I need is the name. If the other lines and the extra blank space were to be removed, I'd be able to see many more listed. I'd like to…

  17. Feature requests

    I wish Box notes were more like DropBox Paper. Top things I like:


    • The editor is essentially a live Markdown editor so nearly all formatting doesn’t require leaving the keyboard.

    • Full support for Markdown export.

    • Comments can be attached to each paragraph - so much better than the one thread per Box note.

    • Links are properly clickable without the silly ‘link bubble’

    • Auto-generated ToC

  18. I want to add a boxnote to a collection

    Let me add a box note into one or more Collections. Seems I currently can only "star" them to put them in my Favourites.

    Other files in box show the Collections management options, but box notes do not.

  19. 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!

  20. To be able to upload different types of files

    To be able to upload different file types in Box Notes such as pdf, word, excel, etc. Currently we can only upload images.
