  1. 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

  3. 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.

  5. We would like to be able to edit inserted preview shared link materials with Office Online within a Box Note.

    Recently, a function to embed a preview of a shared link in Box Note has been released, this feature makes it easier to use files for meetings. On the other hand, we would like to be able to edit everything within the Box Note to complete our processes without having to open another program.

  8. Add "new note" to long-press/3D Touch option in iOS Box app.

    Creating notes in the iOS app really is clunky. As it seems sa standalone Box Notes app for mobile isn't planned, having an option to "create note" in the long press/3D touch menu would be great. At the moment i don't use Box Notes at all, my quick captures & notes go in Drafts or Evernote.

  9. Using number formatting breaks if you don't want an inserted space or image to be numbered

    When I try to format a document using numbering, the sequence breaks if you don't continue the format. In Word, you can restart at 1 or continue numbering if you have a new section of numbers. This forces us to use bullets instead. Sometimes, we'd actually like to use the option of numbering when we are numbering steps.

  13. Copy button in Box Notes Shared Link

    When you get a shared link in Box, it automatically copies it and has a "copy" button front and center - would love the same thing for Box Notes.

  14. 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.

  15. split screen 'saving' note is in a terrible spot

    So . . . I often use a split screen on my Mac with a text on the left and Box Notes on the right. When I take notes in Box Notes, the cursor eventually descends to the bottom right of the
    split-screen window as I type. No problem there. BUT . . . then the 'saving . . . ' oval message pops up from the Box Notes program and obscures the words I'm actually typing. Then the oval messages 'saved' in the same spot. I have to hit return several times to move the text up so that…

  16. Ability to attach a metadata template to a note template

    We would like a way of creating a note template bound to a metadata template. I’ve followed the instructions to create the template and to attach metadata. However, when creating a note using that custom template, there are no metadata attached by default. I want to avoid having to add the metadata template each time after creating a note.

  17. 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

  18. @'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.

  19. Automate email address for box folders

    Our system automatically creates a box folders for each opportunity. In order to create an email for the folder we have to manually go into setting and create the email.

    Can we have an option in the admin console to automate this?

  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.
