  • (2015-09-27) Jean-Pierre Duperche: ne fonctionne tout simplement pas une note ecrite apparait dans tous les mail disant qu il y a une note on modifie une note et toutes les notes sont modifiees
  • (2015-08-29) Mark J: I get a notes pencil but the notes window won't accept any input
  • (2015-06-15) Does not work. Unable to type in the note box. it remains always inactive.
  • (2014-07-19) Steve Willingham: Great potential. For me, the note is about 80% transparent. Hard to see. How do you reduce the transparency?
  • (2014-06-10) Lee Kimbrell: It will not even show the icon or give any way to post a note in the gmail client.
  • (2014-06-04) Karin Friederic: For whatever reason, the icon shows up as indicated, but it doesn't accept text (as Lee Wolfe noted) AND it doesn't appear that it actually attaches notes to specific messages (but instead is a note for the whole inbox, which isn't what I was looking for).
  • (2014-05-08) Lee Wolfe: Needs a lot of work. - The icon does not show up with my other extension icons. - It made my Google Apps access icon (to the right of the Google search bar disappear along with other icons beside it. - When I finally discovered a tiny hint of a shadow near my Extension icons and clicked on it, the Notes extension opened, but wouldn't accept any text I tried to enter. Not only does it not work but it messed up other Gmail functionality.
  • (2014-03-14) Sudheer Marisetti: A simple app but a powerful. - Yes, there should be a indication whether a mail has note or note. - I hope the note shows up the email conversation and not just for an email. - for those complaining not seeing the button, just close your browser and restart it. - It be good to have the note stored in 'Gmail Notes' rather than on local machine.
  • (2014-02-24) Bjorn Behrendt: Simple and does exactly what it is supposed to do without taking over my inbox. Would be helpful if the icon changed to a different color to indicate there is a note attached to the email.
  • (2014-01-11) Eric Williams: Very handy little extension. I'm excited to see if the notes I write at home will appear in my Gmail account on Chrome at the office (or if they are just stored locally). To earn 5 stars, this extension will need a bolder change in appearance than it currently experiences when a note is filed for a particular email and notes will need to be universally available.
  • (2014-01-09) Dennis Devine: Great extension!!! It would be great if you could add a red/colored pencil when there is a note for the email item. Very handy and useful. Used in combination of tagging with label "To Do" "action" etc, you can add notes to help followup on action
  • (2013-12-31) Eugene Master: Still no buttons.
  • (2013-12-23) No Notes button.
  • (2013-12-22) Jan Paul Voorberg: doesnt work, no notes button
  • (2013-12-10) KMH Enterprise: good .i love it
  • (2013-11-26) Juraj Carnogursky: Vadí mi, že nevidím pri ktorom maile mám napísanú aj poznámku pri celkovom pohľade na všetky maily. Predstavoval som si podobný systém ako má Excel.

  • (2014-12-31, v:0.5.1) David Huffman: Main Screen needs emails with notes highlighted
    Great start. Now some how hightlight the emails with notes on the main gmail screen. You could just change the color of the receipiant's name. I need to know which email have notes associated with them.
  • (2014-06-01, v:0.5.0) Position of note
    It overlays the GMail ads and is therefore virtually unreadable. It would help if it were moved more to the boby of the email or made able to be relocated.
