Note Attachment display

Hi there,

we are currently dealing with loads of Notes on our Shots, and we would like to know at a glance when one given Note has an attached file or not.
Right now we have to click on every Note in our Shots ‘Open Notes’ field so it pops and then we can look for an attachment; which is a bit tedious.
Would there be a possibility to display the Open Notes’ attachment in Shots page? or at least change the Notes Icon or something when they have a file attached?

Did any of you have to deal with such a demand?

Best Regards,
Francois

@François_Touvet,

A couple of ideas come to mind.

  1. Within the Open Notes popup, you can add the Attachments field to get a glance of annotations/attachments from there. You can wrap the text to see multiple attachments per note.

  1. You can create a query field on Shots that returns the number of attachments to a note that is linked to the Shot. This will give you a glance of attachments from a Shots page and you can view them via the poop-up (instead of having to open the Open Notes pop-up).

Do any of these options help?

Cheers,
Shayna

Hi Shayna,

it certainly solves a part of the problem by limiting the amount of manipulations; I will propose the first solution to my team.
Nevertheless it would still be really cool to have the possibility to know when a Note has an attachment without having to dig into it, through an icon, a text color change or - better- a display.

Best Regards,

Hi @François_Touvet,

Let us know how it goes.

You have a great idea to have some kind of indicator to quickly tell if there’s an attachment without having to dig in on the Shot level. I definitely encourage you to add your idea to product board for our product team to consider:

hi @shaynad thanks for the info here, sorry to jump in on the post, but how do you setup open notes popup window like in your sample images here? My Open Notes shows a link in the field and I can hover over it and it will show the notes but your example shows a popup window with some useful information for us to customize. Please advise. Thanks!

@nmintrasak, thanks for posting your question here! I have a suspicion that you may be showing the Open Notes field, but you’ll want to show the Open Notes Count field to get the pop-up window functionality:

Did that do the trick?
