One thing I love about the Notes system is the ability to connect a note to any entity or entities. To do so right now, I have a couple of options:
- Nav to the detail page of a given entity (task, shot, custom etc); click on the "Notes" tab, add a note
- Create new note from the universal "+New" menu and try to find my entity via autosuggest.
I'd love to see a quick link or button ("Add Note about this...") that allowed my users to quickly post notes without additional clicks or autosuggest hunting.
- In a List View, include a "new note" button column
- In card or detail view, allow a "new note" button or link to be enabled
I guess in both cases this boils down to a new field type (of sorts). In any case I think this would speed up things and encourage users to make use of the notes system--which I want them to do.
