  1. Retain annotations in subsequent version(s) of a document

    We use annotations when a group of us is proofing and suggesting edits to a document. When we're finished, when the designer makes our edits to the document, and then uploads a new version. Unfortunately, once the new version is uploaded, unlike general comments, the annotations are gone so we can't check in our changes. It would be great if you could make it possible to view annotations from the previous version of a document. Right now, the only workaround is to avoid using annotations, or to open the previous version of the document in a separate browser window and…

  3. Allow editing of annotations

    Sometimes I want to change the comment I left with an annotation. But the only option I get is to delete the annotation. So I'm forced to copy the previous text, delete the old annotation, and create a new one. That's annoying!

  4. Mark comments as resolved

    Love the direct comments/annoations on the file because, when I'm providing feedback, I can circle where I'm referring to and then insert my comment. But when the owner makes the change, the comment is still on the slide. Owners should be able to mark the comment as resolved which hides the comment.

  5. Embed Online Annotations in Word Documents as Comments, and vice versa

    There is a disparity between the online annotations and the actual Word Document when it is downloaded. I would really like to see a conversion/compatibility between Box.com online annotations and Word Document (.doc and .docx). If someone adds an annotation in the online preview of a Word Document, this should show up as a Comment in the Word Document when downloaded for offline viewing. Similarly, if someone adds a Comment in the Word Document (via MS Office application), this should show up as an annotation when viewing the preview in Box.com online.

    I do see a few other requests for…

  6. Printing Annotations Attached to Box Notes

    Currently annotations do not appear when a BOX Note is printed. It would be helpful if the option to print the the annotations was given as a setting.

  7. I need to be able to tag items easier and have the tags be a different color than the file name

    I would like to be able to add tools to the upper tool bar; IE on the last program the "tag" feature was in the quick select tool bar at the top of the page. I use this to mark reviewed quotes once i have reviewed and entered that info into the bid. Having it a couple clicks away slows me down.

    Additionally, the tags used to show up as blue, which helped our team quicker see those quotes that had been reviewed VS those that still needed to be seen. Can we make the tags blue again?
