Notes Gadget

OU Campus Training and Support

The Notes Gadget is a sidebar gadget that gives users the ability to leave notes both for themselves and others on a page.

 Administrators use the Notes Gadget when making minor edits to a page so the owner of the page will know what may have been updated or changes.

Public notes are visible to everyone who edits the page, whereas private notes are visible only to the user who made the note.

When editing a page, type in the blank field to leave a note. A save icon will appear, which must be clicked to save the note. Once saved, notes can be edited, by clicking the pencil icon, or deleted, by clicking the circled "x." Users are only able to edit or delete notes they themselves have posted.
