add Notes pane to workflow task view
The only way users currently have of adding comments to a document as it goes through a workflow is to use the "edit text annotation" function, which is not very visible and can easily be missed. A good idea may be to add a Notes pane to the task area in the bottom-left. In the same way that the users can flip between the various decisions they have as part of the task by clicking the decision buttons on the left side, a couple of buttons can be put on the top: one saying "Task" and the other saying "Notes". By clicking on Notes they can see all the notes that have been added to this workflow by other users. They could add a note themselves and it would sign it with their username and the date/time.
Thank you for your idea. We added it to our collection of ideas and features and will further investigate it. We currently cannot say exactly when this idea will be implemented. As soon as we have more information we will update its status.
