Ability to download comments and print comments
Would like the ability to download and/or print comments associated with a file. Perhaps via additional selections to "Download Comments" and "Print w/Comments".
I understand downloading comments may need to be a separate file as the content could be in various application types and comments are not created in that document type. Printed files convert to PDF so it would be great if the comments could be converted to PDF and added directly to the printed file.
Downloading and printing comments has been a request on the Box Community site from multiple people who have also listed some of their use cases. Please see -
This would be viewed by our organization as imperative. We often use Box comments to provide feedback about many types of documents. Even if they can't be printed, if they could somehow be combined into the document, it would be extremely helpful and useful.
We should be able to download or print the comments that are made on documents from any collaborator on the folder.
It is extremely important to us. Some of our users use in house software like AutoDesk Build, Timberline, etc. When they receive RFI’s, RFPs and Submittals from their sub contractors they upload them to Box for our everyday use and record. The comments are important to them for their in house software and this causes a lot of aggravation for them and it is passed on to me because they are having to do so many additional steps to get the documentation into their system. In order to require the contractors to use Box we have to make it as compatible as possible with their everyday workflow.
Use Box's annotation function on iPad, and use Apple Pencil to annotate and save files saved in Box.
Share the saved annotation file to users who have a Box account and those who don't have a Box account.
The user who receives the document wants to print out the annotated file and perform subsequent processing.
