  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

  2. Box Notes Export or Download to Common Formats

    It would be great if Box Notes supported a simple way to Download/Export into non-Box format like plain text, html, markdown, rtf, or Word. I am hesitant to leverage Box Notes until this feature is present.

  3. 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.

  4. Convert BoxNote to PDF, DOCX, etc...

    BoxNotes would be much more useful if there was an ability to able to generate a PDF or other document format that can be stored in a more traditional method in Box. Some customer that work in the regulated space can't use BoxNotes for various reasons. But, in many cases there is an issue with the fact that BoxNotes does not follow the same retention capabilities we have in Governance. Also, Keysafe does not support BoxNotes, so it may be a workaround if BoxNotes were archivable.

    The initial idea would be to support PDF generation, but i can also see…

  5. Add header and title to Box Note table feature

    The customer would like to be able to fix certain parts of Box Notes to be visible at all times.
    e.g header(row, column etc) of tables ,the title of section

    As you fill in Box Notes, the page scrolls down naturally and then parts of Box Notes above become invisible whether they are a "header" or a "title" of table.
    The customer wants these to be visible at all times even if you scroll down.

    An example would be like the "subject" part at the top of an email in Outlook, which is something that is always visible regardless of…

  7. We want a function to divide files created with Box Notes by category (tag).

    [Background]
    Box Notes is harder to use than OneNote.
    The reason is that it is difficult to find files from INBOX because files cannot be divided by categories (tags, folders, etc.).

  8. Add a reminder function to box notes

    Add the ability to set a reminder either push through the app or an email. For example I keep a to do list in notes or there are reports I need to update weekly. If I had a reminder then I could go back to the note and complete whatever I needed.

  9. change font style

    It would be great if we could have more text customization options. Especially changing fonts. Font style can alter your workflow, it's really important for me, and i think that for others as well.

  10. reference point within box note

    Option to insert anchor/reference point in a Box Note
    Box Notes can be lengthy and would be great to be able to insert an anchor within the Box Note so that when directing someone to that spot, they aren't searching the entire Note to find the spot.

  11. Create a hyperlink to a point within the same note

    Box Notes are wonderful, but after a certain length, they can become unwieldy to navigate. Other services, including Dropbox, offer the ability to hyperlink to a headlines section (text marked as H1, H2) to create a functional contents segment.

    Please could we have the ability to hyperlink within documents, at leas to text tagged as a header

  12. Box Note Unlimited Page Width

    Right now, the box notes page width is fixed. This is particularly frustrating when creating tables in a box note that needs more than a few columns.

    It would be amazing to have the width of the box notes to be unlimited to allow for tables to have many columns

  13. Tables - need change the background color

    I think the table need to be change background color. Background color can use to make table header or important table cell.

    As a qualitative researcher, I'd like to be able to collate annotations in Box Notes so it's easy to grab all of them w/o having to copy and paste each one. Right now, I can only copy and paste some of them, but for others, while I can read them, I can't click on the text to copy and paste (the annotation kind of drops from view). This would mimic some of the functionality in the Reviewing Pane in Word, where you can see all the comments made in one spot and copy and paste from there. Note that I'm…

  15. When I use the option to hide the left sidebar, the toolbar icons at the top are duplicated, overlapping each other.

    This is an accessibility bug I think. I use large fonts on a Mac, and when I use Box in my Safari browser and use show/hide of the left sidebar, I wind up with double the top toolbar icons - overlapping each other, and only half are actionable.

  17. transferring annotations

    Hi. I'm a professor and I created a BoxNote with a text I want my students to annotate collaboratively. I added some annotations, comments, and hyperlinks to get them started. Then I copied this BoxNote to another folder for a second section of the class. The hyperlinks transferred, but the annotations and comments did not. It would be cool if BoxNote supported the total transfer of material in a text, not just the hyperlinks. AND I can't copy and paste all those annotations so now I have to type it all up from scratch. That's a drag. Please design a…

  19. Can we connect our box account to Notion?

    Notion is a very helpful note application that provides components such as databases, kanban boards, calendars and reminders. It's very easy to use them as a task manager for teamwork. Our team like Box and put all our files on Box, but the function of Box Notes is a little bit limited. We have to use other apps to assign work and manage the tasks, but sometimes these tasks is related to some files. I hope Box can support the account connection to Notion or maybe add some more functions like @ member or task dashboard in Box Notes.
    Thank…
