Folder notes help you efficiently navigate folders and find specific information about their contents. Like notes on paper folders, folder notes in OnBase can provide additional information about a folder's contents, or they can act as bookmarks to let you quickly find a document. Different note colors can help you find important or related notes. By providing the information you need at a glance, folder notes can save you time otherwise spent searching through every document in a folder.
For example, suppose you have case file that contains multiple subfolders. In OnBase, the case file folders can be set up as containers for folder notes, allowing you to comment on and add bookmarks to any document in any folder in the case file. Other users with permissions to view these notes can immediately see them upon opening the case file.
