    This is not on this year’s roadmap. But the changes we are making to Notes this year will allow us to innovate and build new features much faster going forward, and we will definitely revisit this ask given the popular votes.

  2. Box notes client for Linux

    Trying to migrate away from One Note to Box notes. Hence need a client that works with Linux. Specifically debian.

  4. Add fixed-width font options

    Ticket # INC4849532 - Customer wants to use Box Notes to write documents that contain code-snippets and excerpts from logs. They would like to use a fixed-width font for these snippets, but Box Notes doesn't allow them to select font and there's no style for fixed-width.

    The issue is the same as the one described in this forum post: https://community.box.com/t5/Web-App-Forum/Boxnote-fixed-width-font/td-p/31194

  5. Enable Tasks in Box Notes

    Client is a heavy user of Box Notes (for project plans, team meetings, checklists, lists and other). They'd like to be able to assign tasks related to those lists/activities/other from the Box Note to collabs.

    Thank you for the feedback. Adding Tasks to Box Notes is functionality that we are actively researching, but is not currently on the roadmap. Please continue to submit feedback and use cases, and we’ll update if and when this becomes a priority.

  6. Native Picture Storage - No More 'Box Notes Images' Folder

    Adding a photo to a Box note currently creates a 'Box Notes Images' folder in the parent folder where the Box Note is located. This seems somewhat odd and unintuitive, especially with the shared link permission quirks with the photos. To resolve this, Box Notes should natively 'store' the pictures within the Box Note itself and not as part of a separate 'Box Notes Images' folder.

  7. Increase number of concurrent Box Notes editors

    Box Notes currently allows only 20 concurrent editors. For a conference or other large gathering it may be useful to have 100+. Please consider increasing the limit, or replacing the hard limit with an in-UI warning (e.g., "You have more than 30 people editing and performance may be reduced").

    In the meantime, also please clearly document the maximum concurrent user limit and behavior in the KB.

    Thank you for the feedback. Increasing the number of concurrent editors on Box Notes is not currently planned in our roadmap. We will continue to monitor and may revisit this in a future planning cycle, based on customer feedback.

    In the meantime, we will look into updating our documentation to make sure both our limits and the user experience are clear.

  9. Image Shared Link Permissions should Match the Box Note's Shared Link Permission

    For example, when a Box Note's shared link is set to 'people with the link', all images in the Box Note should also automatically be updated to be 'people with the link' links.The current issue is that when I set a Box Note's link to 'people with the link' but my company's shared link default is 'people in your company', all the embedded images in the Box Note are still set to 'people in your company', meaning if a non-authenticated user accesses the 'people with the link' Box Note link, they'll see 'insufficient privileges' for all the images in the…

    Thank you for the feedback. We understand that the current permissions behavior for Box Notes images is not necessarily intuitive, and are actively looking into ways to improve that user experience. We don’t yet have a timeline for delivery, but will update here when its available.

  11. @Mention Someone When Replying to an Annotation in a Box Note

    iIt would be nice to be able to @mention someone in a Annotation within the Box Note. I know you can do it in the comments, but if a note is lengthy and you want to put someone's nose right to where you want them to look (or a tasks you've assigned them to), this would be nice to have.

    Thanks for the feedback. Adding @mention to the body of the Note is something that is on our roadmap. We will evaluate at that time whether we can add the capability to an annotation as well

  12. @'ing box groups in comments

    Is there a way to @mention a box user group in the comments section? We have executive team groups of 4-7 people that need tagged in the comments for notifications to approve and discussed projects, but when you are @'ing all 7 it looks a little messy as well as remembering all of those users. Since the email addresses are linked in the box group, would it be possible to @mention that unique group name in the comment and get the same result as @'ing a single user name?
    I look forward to hearing your thoughts/feedback.

  13. Ability to remove read-only shared Box Notes

    When someone send you a box note link, it's automatically and permanently synced to your account's box notes as read only. Currently, there is no way to remove them, unsync, them, or hide them. This causes synced box notes to be polluted with non-editable documents which serve no purpose other than to add to clutter.

  15. Notes Desktop App - Provide .MSI / .DMG / .PKG Installers

  18. Improved project/task management

    Will be great to have some of the Dropbox paper features in Box notes.
    1. Improved checklists -- tagging people and having dates (must have)
    2. Ability to tag people within the note (great to have)
    3. Improved tables -- for ex sorting (nice to have)
    4. Creating timelines (nice to have)
    5. Adding media

  19. Get documents into and out of Box Notes from other formats

    My organization likes Box Notes for their online-collaboration support. But when we have existing documents, we can't get them into a Box Note. And if we want to get them out, we can't do that either.

    Add import and export support to Box Notes. I'd be delighted with Markdown, but my organization can work with just about any open format. Or publish your own proprietary format. XML or JSON, we don't care! Just make it possible to get documents into and out of Box Notes.

  20. When selecting text in a Box Note, you get the option to make a comment related to that selection. We want the ability to @mention there.

    You can @mention someone someone in a sidebar comment on a Box Note. You can select text in a Box Note and make a comment related to that selection. But you cannot @mention someone in a comment related to a text selection.

    We have a user group that uses Workfront for that specific functionality but would shift that workflow to Box if this functionality was added.
