Could it be made possible to change the size of casual notes when opened

we use the casual notes for a variety of reasons one of which is adding the staff meeting agenda each week.

it would be great to be able to expand the size of the text box to be able to view the entire note, message or agenda at one glance instead of having to scroll through the text (and possibly miss things).

Great idea Rachel. We use it in the same way, just as a Note to staff rather than a Casual Appointment. I would love more text to be visible ...

Hi Rachel. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. In a future upgrade, we will increase the height of the text box used to enter notes on a casual appointment. 

Note that you can also hover your mouse over the casual appointment to view a tooltip containing any notes that have been entered.

Thanks Timothy,

Yes, I know we can hover over the note to see it's contents however, this is not always a suitable option as the note only displays for a short amount of time or for a lengthy note or meeting agenda the display is not great..

eg in a staff meeting, to have to constantly hover over the agenda and relocate where you are up to is not optimal but opening the note you have to scroll through and the text is contained in a very small space so again not optimal. 
I have resorted to copying, pasting and printing the agenda in Word - not my preference as paperless is the way to go but it does the job for now.

Being able to adjust the size of the text box when the note is open on an as needs basis would be great if possible.

Thanks

Hi Rachel. In Front Desk v18.1, we have made some minor changes to the size of the casual appointment window. 



Please note that v18.1 includes the new billing engine, so it is important that you familiarise yourself with the Front Desk Accounting Update January 2018 document prior to updating your system.
