Provide a visual indicator that record comment(s) exist?
Suggestion: Provide a visual clue that someone has entered a comment about a record. For example, the comment bubble image on the comment tab could be filled in instead of an outline. Or something. Anything to indicate the presence of comment(s) would be helpful for teams working with a database.
@Jen.. I agree.. And .. there should be a way to programtically access the comments.. as there is with the Attachments (files(this)) ... .. Give me an array .. or something.. There may be and I just do not know about it.
I've found it more usefull to create a subtable of lets say "Customers"-table and call it "Comments". That way all the "Comments" for that customer can be listed in any Tab in the "Customers"-table, styled and with date for the comment, who made it and so on, and then just disable the original comment-view. Something like this:
I do something similar to what Viggo does, but call the sub table "Notes".
Where appropriate.. I do the same.. I was following @Jen's line of reasoning tho... If Ninox took the time/effort to create the "comments" feature / function .. It would be awesome if they would expose it programatically rather then let us turn it on / off..
