  1. View folders in Box notes

    Right now you see a large collection of recent notes but no folder structure - have a view showing folders.

  2. Add avility to highlight differences between any 2 versions of BoxNotes.

    At this time, highlight is available but it is just once and never appear again.

    This idea makes it possible to view differences between the current version and the version one generation ago by showing hilights permanentily . Sure, any 2 versions of BoxNotes are better.

  3. Disable Box Notes for Individuals Outside the Organization

    It would be great if there were separate buttons to disable Box Notes either completely for everyone, or just for people outside of the organization. We use Box Notes internally for meeting planning, and we have this one client who uses it consistently to provide data, but we would really love it if she was prevented from doing so while those of us who work here could still use the feature for meeting prep.

  4. Create new Box Note using boxnote.new

    Similar to how other services like MS Word have word.new, it would be great to have boxnote.new to create a new Box Note from the URL

  6. git-like ‘RAW’ mode for Box Notes

    When I have a Boxnote with a trailing backslash (’\’) a copy-and-paste into an xterm (Linux X11, Mac OS Xquartz), it converts the backslash to a control character.

    When I copy a Boxnote with a backslash I get the following:

    “”“

    !/bin/env bash

    echo “Hello World!” \
    <A0>“The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”
    “”“

    And the string ‘<A0>’ is highlighted.

    It appears to me that Boxnote is interpreting a backslash at the end of a line as a ‘backslash<A0>’ when copy-pasted into an Xterm using vim. I tested the placement by putting a backslash in the middle…

  8. Ability to identify "who wrote" in Box Notes

    We would like BoxNotes to see who writes note lines like OneNote does. This can make easier for users to let other users know who leave comments without typing their name.

  9. Search Existing Templates when creating a new Box Note from a Template

    As a Box user, when I am creating a new Box Note from a template, I want to be able to search existing templates (by template name), so that I can easily re-use existing templates created by others in my organization instead of scrolling through the template list.

  10. Rethink Box Notes as a Collaborative Tool

    Many of the comments about Box Notes, and the shortcomings that make them seem only marginally useful to me, arise from them being treated/implemented as something totally "other", compared to other file types that one might load into Box.

    Unlike other files, Box acts as if Notes all belong together rather than in the user's folder structure, and they have their own type of page or tab that is confusingly different from the standard Box interface, rather than simply opening up in an editing window if the user wants to make changes. An editing window would be much more intuitive,…

  11. Allow users to select a folder when creating a new note in the notes console

    When creating a new note from the notes app, you should allow users to select which folder the note lives in. It currently defaults to the root of the user's drive. Or improve upon the move note feature.

  12. Timesheet

    Dropbox Paper has a feature for a timesheet. I want to use such a tool in Box. It would be better for an easily planning of Projects with a little calendar or something like that. It would be great if you can develope such a tool.

  13. ITAR Support for Box Notes

    Currently, if we need to be ITAR compliant, we are unable to utilize Box Notes. I realize this would require a backend modification, but it would be great if we could utilize Box Notes and remain ITAR/EAR Compliant.

  14. Improve Box notes sharing and Home page

    Box @ IBM is easily my most used and least liked product at work. The link sharing is a horrible experience. Everyone in the company disses Box's link protection. Enabling Link Expiration by default on the shared links is the worst idea and the product manager that approved this feature should dogfood features before subjecting customers to its horrid UX. I can't easily drag drop files like in Google Drive, the home page I land is useful in 0.01% of the cases. Usually I easily spend upwards of 5 minutes just looking for files. I have taken to adding all…

  15. Need a better way to track locations of Box Notes

    Bread crumbs are very useful on BOX documents and folders to explore relevant related documents, but they don’t exist on the page of Box Notes. You see them in the index on the left, but that doesn’t correspond to the Box Note you happen to be on. I have to hunt & search if I want to see other docs in the same folder. It would be great if this functionality could be added into Box Notes.

  17. Ability to discern between your notes and notes shared with you on left menu.

    This would make finding your own notes easier and also help you easily know if a note was created by you or someone else. This would be a variation of the different colors of Box folders.

  18. Align box note shared link experience with file/folder experience

    With Box note there is nor "copy" button, neither "email" button. This is not consistant with shared link for file or folder and requires extract actions

  20. Fix the copy/paste feature so that random spaces are not removed from the pasted content

    When copying from one Box Note to another (and probably from other rich text sources also), numerous spaces are removed from the pasted text. Often times, spaces are removed immediately following hyperlinks, but also from between random words throughout the text, requiring a complete, time-consuming review and cleanup of the new content.
