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.
It's a json format, but it's not documented. There's this which might be of help: https://github.com/alexwennerberg/boxnotes2html
I want to import plain text, html, markdown, rtf, Word and other files into BoxNotes.
I've been using Markdown so far, but if I could import everything into BoxNotes, it would be easier to manage and not confuse everyone.
One lesson I've learned : never ever use anything which you can't programatically get data in to or out of. All systems have a finite lifespan and you must be able to ensure your data's lifespan isn't tied to how you store it.
If you can't import your own data into it, or can't export your data out of it again (in a readable form), it's a trap and, one day, you'll regret the day you became dependent on it (as all systems have a finite lifespan).
TL;DR: Without a "export to <some standard format>" facility, Box notes cannot be used safely.
