How to use Notes

There are a number of ways you can use Notes in Buffer. Let’s take a quick look at how to use them:

  • Adding context to a post for future reference: You might want to remind yourself to update a link or add an image to the post before you publish it.
  • Giving and getting feedback on a post: Notes are a great way to discuss content with your team. Add a note to a post to start a discussion and your team members will be notified via email if collaboration emails are turned on.
  • Responding to messages requiring approval: If you already have a draft in the Approvals tab, starting a conversation about updates that require approval is a great way use Notes.
  • Sharing notes on rejected messages: If you’ve rejected a post that was awaiting approval, you can use Notes to share more context.
