This is a short summary of the note contents, to help you remember what your note is for.
This is the body of the note where you can type the note text that you want other internal staff to be able to view.
Click on the note row to open the note and view the full note text.
Only the user who created the note can amend the note text.
The Active box on a new note is checked by default.
Active notes are shown on the organisation dashboard in the notes panel, and only active notes are shown by the default filter in the organisation notes list.
Change a note to inactive to hide it from the default view once the tasks are complete. Inactive notes can still be located in the notes list by using the filters.
Notify me of any changes
The Notify Me box is checked by default on any new note that you create. This ensures that you are sent a notification in Synergy when another user adds a comment.
Note comments are added to record further information about the note task. Uncheck this box if you do not wish to receive any notifications about comments being added to this note.
This field contains the name of the staff member who created the note, with a Synergy profile picture for the staff member (if a profile picture is available).
The date and time that the note was created is also shown.
Type a comment on the note to record extra information about the note task. Other users can add comments to a note to advise of progress on the note task, or to reply to the note creator.
Type the note text, and then either press the enter key or the save button on the comment row. On the saved comment rows the person who added the comment is shown along with the date and time the comment was entered.
