Is there an easy way to store and view item notes?

In the item list tab I am updating our entire inventory (4000+ items) and we also use the item list as a reference when working with customers. Is there a fast and easy way to add notes using the "new notes" button and also view all these notes without leaving this page?

The only place you can see the note for an inventory item is when you are using the inventory center, select the inventory item and then click the notes tab at the bottom.

Notes do not show anywhere else in QB

Thank you for this answer. I added a note using the "add note" button in when viewing the item. When I go to the inventory center the note is not there. "Where did it go?" Does it not exist?
I added a note from the inventory center and when I OK'd it I saw the note flash in the right column but it disappeared.
I added another note and it stayed there - i.e. is visable.
I'd swear that I entered both notes the same way.

Had this same issue.  Would be infinitely more useful if the notes were accessible from Item List or Edit Item window.

I agree with the rest of the answers. Notes should be easily seen when in Inventory. Otherwise disable it I wasted much time trying to make them useful, doubting my own abilities and sanity.

"Inventory Center" is in Vendors>Inventory Activities>Inventory Center which is not very obvious. Took me a while to find that. In that Center you can view a list of items and there you can see the elusive Notes.

Thank you bboyes!  I didn't see it at first.  Once there I found the item where I knew I had a note.  I highlighted it with my mouse, then right click, and then selected "Show Inventory List and Details".  Once on the Details page there's a tab for Notes!

So in other words, notes are virtually useless? Does anyone find a use for them? If so, in what way?

I use it to remind myself that I can use this item to make x,y and z that I normally do not stock or make, but will if asked
other than that - useless IMO

But the only way it reminds you is if you go looking for the reminder, right?
