Box: Create a Box Note

Box Notes is an easy-to-use document creation tool built natively in Box and available to all Box users. With Box Notes, you can quickly take notes, share ideas, and collaborate in real-time with your team€”all without leaving Box.

Notes are web-based documents and do not require any other software in order to create, view or edit. If you are collaborating with users outside the University that do not have access to Word Online you can use Notes instead.

Creating a Box Note

Create new Box Notes from the Box web application. Just like any other type of document on Box, you'll find your Box Notes in the folders were you added the new Box Note.

  1. Navigate to the folder where you want to create the new Box Note.
  2. You can add a new Box Note using one of two options:
    • Click the Box Notes icon
      The Box Notes Icon

    • Or click New > Box Note
      The New Menu expanded with Box Note highlighted in the list

  3. Enter the name for the Box Note and click Create. Your Box Note opens in a new tab or window in your browser.
