Adding Notes

For record types that support the notes feature, you can add a note in two ways:

  • By clicking the note icon at the top-right of the record Detail page. This is available if the Message Center is enabled for your company. With this method you can add notes to a list of notes for the record, and subscribe to notes that are added to the record.
  • By clicking New in the Notes section.

Typically, if your company administrator has made the note icon available, the Notes section will not be available. However, if the Notes section is present, notes that you add to the list of notes are also added to the Notes section.

For more information about the Message Center, see Working with the Message Center. For more information about using the list of notes, see Working with the List of Notes.

The method used to create a note makes no difference to the access permissions to the note.

  3. Click New Note.
