Notes App

The Notes app shows all of the notes that have been shared across all of your conversations.

The drop-down lists at the top of the page provide options for filtering and sorting the list of notes. You can view all notes, just notes that you posted, notes posted by a specific person, or notes from a specific team/team folder. The notes can be sorted by the date they were posted, their title, or by the name of the author.

Notes can be viewed as a list, or with summaries that include a short snippet from the note.

Click on any note in the list to open it in the Note Viewer.

The icons at the top-left allow you to print, edit, like, favorite, share, move, delete, etc. There is also an Edit button prominently displayed at the top-right. If the note is currently a draft, a Post Note button would be displayed as well. Only one person at a time may edit a given note, and you will be informed if the note is already being edited.

Click on the Close button, or hit the Esc key, to close the note. 

When in edit mode, the toolbar at the top of the page provides options for formatting your note, and the buttons at the right allow you to save or cancel your work. If the note is currently a draft, a Save Draft button would also be displayed. Click Save Draft to keep the note as a draft, or click Post Note to go ahead and publish the note to the stream for the given conversation.

If you're in the middle of reading/editing a note and you want to check on some new messages or do anything else on Glip, just click on the Minimize button at the top-right. The note will collapse down into a small thumbnail displayed at the top-right of your Glip window. You can now go about your other business on Glip, and then when you're ready to get back to the note, just click on it. The note will open up full-screen again and you can continue reading, editing or composing.

    I was using the Notes app to write up some directions on how to deploy an app to a staging server, and found myself wanting to copy/paste markdown. The HTML thing is OK for most people, but for quickly writing formatted text with headings and code-blocks and tables, I find it cumbersome. I ended up just posting a .md file to a github repo instead.

    Might I suggest a toggle between the default HTML mode and a Markdown Mode?

    +1 for Markdown support in Notes. I find Markdown support to be one of those simple but often missed features that, for me, is very important. My entire workflow is Markdown based and sharing content without support causes lots of friction.

    Just signed up to say, this is essential for me too. It seems like nothing, but our projects documentation is in markdown, my blog, any personal note, etc. I can't be bothered to go click in a toolbar for bold, nor do I want to learn a new set of shortcut keys. I really like Glip, but it will be a mixed feeling until I can get app-wide markdown.

    Is there any way of writing a note and attaching it to a specific task?
    My marketing team often use Word to write their content and then attach it to a task for the design team. It would be so much better if they wrote their content in Notes, then added it to the task they'd created. Is that possible?

    Hi David - For now, the best workaround would be to post the note to Glip, and then @mention it in a reply to the task.

    I don't like markdown. I would be happier with having headers in the html editor that currently exist. With shortcuts like alt 1, alt 2 etc.

    Is there a way to do @mentions in Notes. I can only do it on TOP of a note, but not in the note itself.

    Is there s easy way to see who or what teams have access to the note? I can't seem to find a place in notes that tells me who has access to it.

    J Kim - Unfortunately, at the moment we don't have anything in either the Notes or Image viewers that shows you the conversation the note/image was posted to. I'll get that on our to-do list.

    One major issue with Notes is the ability to print them properly. They look great in browser with placed images, tables, etc. but when you go to print it all formatting goes crazy.

    If i delete a note which was mistakenly shared in a group, will it delete the original note too?
