The Question:

I see notes are available on most pages, but I’m not sure what they are meant to be used for. Could someone enlighten me?

The Answer:

Notes, along with documents, appear in nearly every Apptivo application.  Being one of Apptivo’s collaboration tools, Notes have a few different proper uses, depending on the type of business.One common use of notes is to provide a log of changes and updates made in Apptivo.  For example, an employee could take a note of how they recently increased an estimated opportunity value, allowing their fellow staff to better informed about the history of that opportunity.Another good use to quickly write down small pieces of information related to that item.  When meeting in person, or on a phone call with a customer, you can be viewing their account information while you write down notes on your conversation.  These notes can then easily be viewed by another other employees working with this customer.

Notes work exactly the same across all applications, and will always be present in a similar “tabbed” layout.  Clicking the notes tab will reveal a listing of all previous notes, a search field, and a button to add a new set of notes.
