  1. Responding to question on the comments section

    it would be good to respond to questions asked in the comments section. Or like, thumbs up etc. Currently you have to start a new comment to respond to a question and it doesn't flow.

  3. 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.

  4. 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)

  6. Enable spell check in Annotation comments

    Annotation comment pop up windows do not currently have a spell check function. Comments can be modified under the activity section, but spell check doesn't work there either.

  7. Enable option to redact sensitive information manually via Annotations or automatically via Optimal Character Recognition (OCR).

    Enable option to redact sensitive information manually via Annotations or automatically via Optimal Character Recognition (OCR).

    E.g. Box Shield could add OCR functionality to Smart Access for DLP.

  8. Add "Like" button to comments

    I would like to "like" comments on the preview so that is is easier to show that I have checked the comment without typing a new comment to say I have checked it.
    We are now getting more use to using reactions from Slack/Teams that it would be nice to react with a "like" or a thumbs up reaction.

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  13. I want to be able to make annotations permanent in PDFs and other documents.

    Good morning. I am new to Box. I would like to be able to make permanent annotations to documents (such as a PDF) and then be able to share that annotated document without having to do the annotations in another app and then re-upload them into Box. It seems like a waste of time when I am trying to streamline the process of document review. I think that many people would appreciate the ability to do this. Thank you for your consideration! Keep safe. Have a great week.

  14. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. Use of iPad’s Markup for annotating. Box’s implementation of annotations is poor.

    iPads have a built in document markup function for annotating documents, it’s tragic that Box doesn’t permit this tool to function.

    My current work around is to copy the file to my iPad then use Markup to annotate my document, then finally copy the annotated document back into Bix.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Ability to Enable/Disable Annotations

    We would like to request for a feature to be able to enable/disable Annotations.

    Annotations is very convenient, but sometimes it could make users confusing, if they do not know how to use it.
    Therefore, we would be grateful if there is a feature to be able to disable Annotations, and then enabling afterwards.
