Until now, Notes for a person had to fit into a single field with a 500-character limit. Clerks and pastors can now create multiple Notes (no limit on size) with “happened on” dates. All existing Notes have been converted to a new Note with “date unknown”.
To create a Note, just click on the “Add a note” link.
As you enter the new Note, you have the option to choose the “Happened on” date.
Saved Notes display with the most recent at the top.
Right now, the “Who can see this?” drop-down only offers “Everyone”. This is how the Notes field has always worked. In the near future, options will be added to allow pastors and clerks to add private notes.
