How to Create Admin-Initiated Notes in AccessAlly

With AccessAlly Pro, you can create admin-initiated notes that are specific to each user. This is an advanced feature, so make sure to follow the tutorial below to learn how to set it up:

What is an Admin-Initiated Note

An admin-initiated note is a note that a user can see, that is started by an administrator. Users will not see this note until it has been created for that specific user.

Creating the Note

This section will walk you through creating your admin-initiated note.

Step 1: Create the Note

Go to the page you want the note to appear on. Scroll down to the ProgressAlly Page Settings and click on Private Notes, click on the ADD NEW NOTE button, and then name your note and select ‘Admin-initiated comment’ for the type. Give your note some context and placeholder text.
