  1. PDF & PNG Export for Canvas

    When finalizing a session using visual collaboration, it's often required to export the end product to be able to share with non-Box users, and possibly to upload as attachment to other applications. A PDF (possibly PNG) export feature would be great additions.

  2. 3rd Party Integrations and Pull Data from Other Sources

    We would love to see Box Canvas have robust integration capabilities (e.g. MS Suite, Zoom, Miro, Mural, etc.) It would be great if we had the ability to pull data in from other sources (for example, MS Excel) to Box Canvas.

  3. No "print" option like in Box Notes

    There's no way to export or print the Canvas. This ability exists in Miro, so if Canvas were to offer this, we could likely cut out our Miro licenses. This ability exists today in Box Notes, so it would make sense for it to be available in Canvas as well.

  4. Canvas feature improvements

    After trying Canvas it looks like in order to get more use out of this compared to other open white board on the market it really does need allow more flexibility and improvements such as:

    1. Ability to allow GIF's for presentations.
    2. Allow links/ bookmark to files within box within a text box.
    3. Allow preview box of a video or crop a video within box to show a snippet of the video for presentation.
    4. Allow a preview link/ bookmark to Audio file to play.
    5. Currently drawn notes or shapes only allow corners to expand, it would help to add in side…

  5. Need to be able to pick my own RBG colors

    The color options are very limited. If I were to use this for my company's diagramming tool of choice, we would need to be able to load in our own color palette.

  6. Need to be able to click and drag to select multiple shapes

    If you're only selecting a couple shapes, clicking and holding down Shift works just fine. However, if you need to move a bunch of shapes or content, the ability to click and drag to highlight multiple would be helpful.

  8. UX is slightly different than Box Notes

    Notes from left pane takes you to your notes inbox. Canvas creates a blank canvas in your default save. It would be a more congruent experience if the UX matched

  9. Enable by default the option to create a new Canvas from existing template

    When creating a new Canvas board, it would be great to have the option to select from a template enabled by default. This feature is easy to miss when not enabled for new users. The option to disable/enable can remain, but it should be enabled by default for users initially.

  10. Upload an image as a background

    Need the ability to upload an image as a background. This will help with any use case for ideation sessions or anywhere you want co-workers to move things around on a map, grid, four-box etc.

    When clicking on the Box Canvas button, we should access to the folder with all the canvas. Currently, it creates a canvas whereas there is a button existing for this yet/

  12. Explain navigation mode

    Choosing the navigation mode (trackpad or mouse) is not evident and the navigation is not natural when you are on trackpad mode but using a mouse. Ther should be an interface explaining it is possible to change it

  13. Copy/Paste on Word/Porwerpoint

    Copy/Paste the work made on Canvas on an Office document could be super useful.
    At least deleting the code when you paste it now would be nice

  14. Consumes a lot of PC resources.

    I am using BoxCanvas in low-resolution mode.
    It is Windows with a core i5 CPU and 8GB memory.
    I use Chrome as my browser, but it consumes a lot of CPU and memory. I would like to be able to use it comfortably without a high spec machine.

  15. Add ability to add symbols or words on different parts of the post-its on canvas

    We're using the canvas to plan project activities and sequence them using a pull planning methodology. It would be helpful if we could edit the top part or bottom part of the note that is currently unused margin to add comments.

    We'd like to add durations like 2w, 1d, etc or a symbol that means something in one corner or a champion in another. Sort of like headers and footers on a word document but for the notes.

  17. Needs Spacing Guidelines

    There is currently no feature to help the user evenly space shapes away from each other. Other diagramming tools have a feature where you can highlight multiple shapes and then evenly space them vertically or horizontally from each other. Or when you're clicking and dragging a shape, it tells you if its evenly spaced with the others.

  18. The Connector arrow needs to touch the edge of the Triangle Shape

    Currently, when you draw a connector line to or from a triangle shape, the arrow doesn't actually start or end at the triangles border. It appears it just stops and isn't connected because its connecting to an invisible square border around the triangle.

  19. Need to be able to give Connectors a Name

    Typically, a diamond shape indicates a decision or two pathways someone can take. To create a proper diagram, you need to be able to name those pathways like Yes & No or True & False. There needs to be a way to name the line without having to add a separate text box near the line.

  20. Canvas integration into Zoom

    Once canvas is available, there should be an integration into zoom so people can use Box Native canvases in Zoom, and the result should save automatically into Box.
