Ready, set, collaborate! 4 ways to use Box Notes

Your ideas and plans in notebooks get lost, your brainstorming sessions on whiteboards get erased - these are universal truths in note-taking. With the latest update of Box Notes, your Notes stay secure and follow you everywhere - from your Box account on the web, to your phone - and now, your desktop. There are lots different ways to use Notes to stay productive and make working together simple, but here are the top 4 most popular ways our customers use Box Notes:

Capture Meeting Notes
Box Notes are a great way to keep your team on the same page before, during, and after meetings. Before your next meeting, open a new Note and create your meeting agenda. Paste a shared link to the Note into your meeting invite, and your whole team will be able to add ideas during the meeting. With easy access to recently edited notes in the new sidebar, your team can quickly come back to the note to review next steps.

Group Brainstorming
Sharing new ideas and solving challenges are what brainstorms are best known for, but the time spent in team brainstorming meetings can lead to groupthink instead of unique ideas. Instead, create a new Box Note, add collaborators, and let the good ideas flow - on your own time. Save the Box Note as a Favorite, and easily find it in your Favorite Notes list later to add ideas as they come to you. Vote on your favorite ideas with in-line comments and tag your teammates for follow-up.

Plan Projects Together
Nothing slows a project down like endless status meetings and trying to keep everyone on the same page. With Box Notes, you can organize project notes, conversations and deadlines in one easy-to-manage place. And since all the other content you work with lives in Box, you can link to different files and folders so you get the hassle-free overview you need while your team stays aligned and focused.

Stay Organized with To-Do Lists
With constant meetings, emails, and chat messages throughout your work day, you're bound to wind up with new action items to complete every day. Capture, organize and track them all in Box Notes, along with your personal to-do lists, to get stuff done and stay sane in the process.
