Box: Edit 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.

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

Edit a Box Note

  1. Open existing Box Notes from the Box web application to make edits.
    • Just like any other type of document on Box, you'll find your Box Notes in the folders where they were created.
  2. Clicking on the filename will open any of your Box Notes in a new tab or window in your browser.
