As described here already, I created a little plugin to easily store and retrieve private notes on a per-profile system. Let me show it to you in action:
With add open:
And after posting a private note to self:
Aside from private notes only for oneself, staff members can also tick a check-box to put the note into the shared "staff"-bucket. Those notes then show up for all staff members, like the following:
You can find the [plugin on github]. Here are the install instructions from the Readme:
This simple plugin adds private profile notes functionality to the discourse forum system.
This neat little plugin adds the possibility for any user to leave private, personal notes on another persons profile allowing them to read them later. Only the user, who created the note can view them.
On top, Staff can decide to share the note with the rest of staff. In which case other staff will see what that person noted on it. This works on a per-note-bases and doesn't inhibit any staff person to still have their own personal notes.
Just two easy steps. From your main discourse do:
git clone https://github.com/ligthyear/discourse-plugin-profile-notes.git # clone the repo here
RAILS_ENV=production rake assets:precompile
Then restart your discourse and enjoy the fun on ever /user/*/activity-page.
- way improved UI. If you had a version before this one run in development, make sure to clear your cache (rm -rf DISCOURSE/tmp/cache/*)
- Bugfix: as staff all notes were shared with staff. Now only when actually selected.
(in order of importance)
- Notes can't be deleted atm
- Notes should support markdown, too
