Chapter 19. Workplace Collaboration > Using Design Notes for Improved Workflow

Using Design Notes for Improved Workflow

The idea behind Dreamweaver Design Notes is simple: A Design Note is a small file that contains pieces of information about a document. That file follows that document wherever it goes (from your office computer to all the other computers in the office, and even to the web server itself if necessary). It can be accessed at any time by any design team member. Therefore, Design Notes allow you to leave notes associated with specific files for yourself and your coworkers. This means that you can track changes to documents, map their progress and history, or update and change a document’s completion status. Although this chapter focuses on using Design Notes to save information such as file status for HTML documents, they can potentially store any type of information you can think of and can be attached to any kind of file.

Design Notes as they pertain to image editing are discussed in Chapter 5, “Working with Images.” Customizing your file view columns using Design Notes is covered in Chapter 17, “Local Site Management.”
