Notes are a simple way for exchanging information between the users of an Feng Office installation. Notes can be used as a replacement for a forum, a blog, a blackboard, or a mailing list. It supports comments, so you can discuss things; and by subscribing to a note you get notifications by mail if there is a new comment. So notes are a simple, but powerful element of Feng Office.

Main section

A note consists basically of a title and a text in plain text format (no formatting options, no HTML code).

PLEASE NOTE: The Additional text link below the regular text is usually not visible. This is a legacy feature and has no specific function at the moment. You will see this link only if you are using a Feng Office installation that has been upgraded from a pre-1.0 release and if somebody entered some additional text already.1)

In this section you can assign a note to one ore more workspaces.

You can also assign tags to a note.

Section "Custom Properties"

In this section, you will have the option to set your own new properties depending on your needs.

Section 'option' has Private Note in the picture above… But my opengoo does not show that option…! Is it because something went south during installation or something? Please if anyone knows about this, let me know! :(

Maybe you are not a member of the owner company?

Raphael, 2009-07-22 19:20

That shouldn't be the case because I used the administrator's ID&password to log in…But I will check. thanks!

I am unable to find the private option as well… Has this been removed in feng office? I am using the demo of the latest version here: -

I want to write notes to employees working on a client workspace, but do not want the clients to read the special notes I am writing.

Francisco Ponce de León, 2010-10-29 14:17

This has been removed from current Feng Office version as you can do the very same thing with different methods and other reasons

Jonas, 2010-11-16 07:49

Could you please elaborate on what methods and reasons(?) you are refering to?

Francisco Ponce de León, 2010-11-16 09:25

The reasons are permissions ones, and the methods, you could simply use a workspace where only you and your client would have access to and just write a note there for instance
