  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    3. Improved tables -- for ex sorting (nice to have)
    4. Creating timelines (nice to have)
    5. Adding media

  6. 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?

  7. Ability to remove read-only shared Box Notes

    When someone send you a box note link, it's automatically and permanently synced to your account's box notes as read only. Currently, there is no way to remove them, unsync, them, or hide them. This causes synced box notes to be polluted with non-editable documents which serve no purpose other than to add to clutter.

  8. Provide link to Box root or parent folder from within Notes view

    While one can navigate to the parent folder when in preview/edit mode on a Box Note by clicking the ellipsis, it's not obvious to those that don’t know about it and can’t find it.

    This lack of navigation is likely because of the reliance on using tabs to differentiate notes from the rest of Box. However, this has its shortcomings, as it relies on opening up notes from within Box. I have some bookmarks that go directly to a Box note, so I could never before find a way to get out of the notes view when opening notes this…

  9. Shared Link Comments

    We share our creative to our clients using shareable links. It would be great if non-box users had the ability to make comments on the files shared. We are switching over from dropbox and that was a feature that we use with our clients on a very regular basis. It gives us the ability to have all of their feedback in one place.

    Please let me know if this is doable. It's top priority for our team :)

    Thank you!

  10. Insert date and time fields in Box Notes

    My office would like to use Box notes to log certain informal client interactions. We would like to create a customized Box note template for this, and we need it to include automatic current date and time field in the note header (i.e. individual note creation date and time) -- similar to the generic stock template provided by Box. However, there is currently no way to insert automatic creation date and time fields in a custom Box note template header. This should be an easy and useful enhancement.”

  14. Backup Box Notes

    I would like to have the ability to create a backup of my Box Notes or at least label version history (e.g. add a "v1.2" tag at a certain point in history).

    I have tried using the Copy feature to copy the Box Note, but the copy does not retain the comments, annotations, or history.
    I have tried copying the content into Word to no avail.
    And there is no download button for Box Notes.

  16. Make error message more apparent when slash or back slash is used in Box Notes' title

    When slash or back slash is used in the title of Box Notes, it suddenly changes back to its original title as those characters cannot be used.
    An exclamation mark icon quietly appears in the right side of the title, but unless I hover over my mouse pointer, it is not apparent why it changed back my title. Please show this error message more apparent (maybe always show it for the first 10 seconds) and/or color exclamation mark icon in red, so that the users can notice what went wrong.
