How to Add a New Note for a Joomla 2.5 user

Joomla 2.5 has reached its end of life as for 12/31/2014. Please be advised this may be a security risk to your website. You can view more information about the end of life here.

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

  3. Click the User Notes tab, and then click New in the top right menu
  4. Under New Note, fill in the required fields, and then click Save & Close in the top right menu

    Note SubjectThis will be the subject line of your new Joomla 2.5 Note
    Note IDThis will be the user the note belongs to. Click the Select User button to find the user to assign the note to
    CategoryIf you have setup different note categories, select the appropriate category from the dropdown
    StatusMuch like Joomla articles, notes need a status (Published, Unpublished, Archived, Trashed)
    Review TimeThis 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.
    NoteThis is the actual note

You have now added a new user note!
