  1. PDF & PNG Export for Canvas

    When finalizing a session using visual collaboration, it's often required to export the end product to be able to share with non-Box users, and possibly to upload as attachment to other applications. A PDF (possibly PNG) export feature would be great additions.

  3. Canvas feature improvements

    After trying Canvas it looks like in order to get more use out of this compared to other open white board on the market it really does need allow more flexibility and improvements such as:

    1. Ability to allow GIF's for presentations.
    2. Allow links/ bookmark to files within box within a text box.
    3. Allow preview box of a video or crop a video within box to show a snippet of the video for presentation.
    4. Allow a preview link/ bookmark to Audio file to play.
    5. Currently drawn notes or shapes only allow corners to expand, it would help to add in side…

  4. No "print" option like in Box Notes

    There's no way to export or print the Canvas. This ability exists in Miro, so if Canvas were to offer this, we could likely cut out our Miro licenses. This ability exists today in Box Notes, so it would make sense for it to be available in Canvas as well.

  5. 3rd Party Integrations and Pull Data from Other Sources

    We would love to see Box Canvas have robust integration capabilities (e.g. MS Suite, Zoom, Miro, Mural, etc.) It would be great if we had the ability to pull data in from other sources (for example, MS Excel) to Box Canvas.

  6. Need to be able to pick my own RBG colors

    The color options are very limited. If I were to use this for my company's diagramming tool of choice, we would need to be able to load in our own color palette.

  7. Consumes a lot of PC resources.

    I am using BoxCanvas in low-resolution mode.
    It is Windows with a core i5 CPU and 8GB memory.
    I use Chrome as my browser, but it consumes a lot of CPU and memory. I would like to be able to use it comfortably without a high spec machine.

  8. Lock content areas

    Add the ability for the board owner to lock some content so that people cannot move it by accident. It helps when collaborating on a board with multiple users.

  9. I would like to be able to create tables in Box Canvas.

    I would like to be able to create tables in Box Canvas.
    This is requested because if tables can be easily created like in Box Notes, they can be used more conveniently as whiteboards.

    Box Canvasにて表を作れるようにしてほしい。
    Box Notesのように表が簡単に作成できるとホワイトボードとしてさらに便利に利用できるため、この要望をリクエストします。

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. Canvas integration into Zoom

    Once canvas is available, there should be an integration into zoom so people can use Box Native canvases in Zoom, and the result should save automatically into Box.

  13. Visual indicator when Box Canvas user is just a viewer, not editor

    When using Canvas as a viewer, the user may try to vote on the sticky notes, or try to locate the toolbar, and think that something is broken, when in reality they are looking for features available to editors only.

    We should consider adding some visual indicator of the "view only" status e.g. a banner or a badge at the top, an icon over which a user can hover over to get more info, or an icon by the cursor arrow to indicate editing is disabled.

  14. Adding custom shapes to Canvas

    I would like to be able to add shapes to Canvas, for example the AWS shape library to mirror the behaviour of another white boarding tool we're currently using.

    This would allow us to collaborate on complex architecture diagrams using very specific shapes/icons.

    Some ways this could be introduced:
    -shapes available to all Canvas users
    - or the ability to add templates pre-populated with custom shapes
    -or the ability to upload custom shapes for the entire instance

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  18. Add Emojis to a Canvas

    I'd like an easy way to add emoji icons to a Canvas, both to help people express their thoughts and opinion on a topic, but also to help me create a more visually captivating Canvas e.g. flags, process flow icons etc

  19. Functional improvement of Box Canvas

    I'd like to see more color variations (pastel color selection should be available).
    The aspect ratio of stickies is fixed, so please make it more flexible (e.g., make them longer horizontally).

  20. 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.
