Understanding the 'Duplicate Note' Popup Options

Upon selecting the 'Duplicate' button, a popup titled 'Duplicate Note' will appear. This popup is similar to the one displayed when duplicating a job, and presents several options for you to choose from.

Managing Parent/Child Relationships Between Notes

In the 'Duplicate Note' popup, you can decide on the parent/child relationship between the original and duplicate notes. This is done using the 'Parent of Duplicate Note' field, which offers the following options:

  • Original note
  • Original note’s parent (this option is disabled if the original note doesn’t have a parent)
  • None (if this option is selected, a conditional field titled 'Duplicate Note Becomes Parent of Original Note' will be displayed)
