Allow notes to be added to the calendar.
We want to put notes on certain days. Would be really helpful to be able to put it in.
Hey Trent, thanks sharing your idea with us.
Just had a couple questions to clarify. Are you just wanting to put a note on the schedule? Would it be associated with an employee and a day?
Would this be visible to the employee, admin only? Any other details for what you are looking for would be really useful, thanks!

To expound on this base idea, for our company the way this would also help us would be to provide a way to add a note on the day to explain a lack of time. The problem this solution could fix is there is currently no way to document an explanation for a lack of time for an employee on that day. We need to keep a record of absences or really any time that an employee doesn't get a full day/week of pay, we like to maintain a record or note so that if there is a need to reference it down the road we can.
It could be a free type field to say whatever is necessary about that day, or be a more complex object with fields like category, contact made (text, phone, email, no contact), notes, etc. Category options could be:
-Called in sick
-No show/No call
-Told not to come in due to... changed manning requirements, job canceled, inclement weather, etc.
This way instead of a day being completely blank on the calendar there can be a record or a note letting HR know at a glance why the individual does not have time on the day. It could be as simple as an open text field or a more detailed item with multiple fields.
- Accessibility: create/editable by frontline supervisor and lockable by Admin so that once it is locked it can not be edited unless unlocked by the admin.
- History: edits recorded like edits on a time record
- Visibility: only visible to the manager who created it and administrators

We would like to have the ability to see special notes that can expand on the calendar view of the schedules like you can on an outlook calendar in month view.
