A new feature in Joomla 2.5 is the User Notes feature. This feature allows you to log notes on users. Other Joomla Administrators can see these notes, and this can be especially helpful if you're keeping track of a problematic user in a social site. Adding new user notes in Joomla only takes a moment, and we'll show you how to do so in this article.

To add a new user note in Joomla 2.5:

  1. Log into your Joomla Dashboard
  2. In the top menu, hover over Users and click User Manager
    click-user-manager
  3. Click the User Notes tab, and then click New in the top right menu
    click-user-notes
  4. Under New Note, fill in the required fields, and then click Save & Close in the top right menu
    enter-the-details-of-the-new-note
    Note Subject This will be the subject line of your new Joomla 2.5 Note
    Note ID This will be the user the note belongs to. Click the Select User button to find the user to assign the note to
    Category If you have setup different note categories, select the appropriate category from the dropdown
    Status Much like Joomla articles, notes need a status (Published, Unpublished, Archived, Trashed)
    Review Time This is a manually entered time to help you keep track of the time the note relates to. Joomla does not by default give you any notifications of notes with an upcoming review time.
    Note This is the actual note

You have now added a new user note!
