Denote is a simple and powerful tool that lets you leave notes and communicate directly on live Websites with your project teams. Share feedback, manage projects, save time.
Denote’s awesomeness lies in its simplicity. It is an application that bridges the gap between web savvy designers and developers and clients who may be less technologically confident. Tools allow for notes to be assigned to specific users, alerts to be set up, files can be attached to notes when needed and a user friendly administrative area helps keep everything organized.
No Software Installation Required
The Denote Toolbar is built with cross-compatible internet technologies. It works in your favorite browser, and is loaded by clicking a bookmark.
Leave Detailed Notes On Websites Without Making Screenshots!
Denote simplifies communication between you and your clients by giving comments, questions, and errors context within a live Website. The browser-based interface eliminates the guesswork involved in tracking down an issue on your site.
List View of Active and Completed Notes
The “Your Notes” section of the toolbar makes it incredibly easy to review all the notes on a given project. Review the notes contents, who wrote the note and when it was written. Click on a note in the list and you will be taken to the page where it resides.
Project Notification Via Email
Not only does Denote make it easy for your team to leave comments and feedback in context, but it will send everyone involved in the project an email when notes require their attention. Project notifications can be turned on and off on a per project basis.
