A sticky note is a highlighted comment on the Summary View of a record. When there are multiple comments on a record, and you want to highlight a particular comment to capture users’ attention, you can display it as a sticky note.

Here are some use cases:

As a sales rep, you can display important notes about a deal as a sticky note. This is handy when the deal is transferred to a different sales rep. 

As a support manager, you can display case-related instructions as a sticky note. The customer service rep working on the customer case can view the instructions before taking any action.


You can use sticky notes to highlight any general rule to be followed in a process. For example, in customer support, saying greetings such as Good Morning or Have a Good Day is a must; this rule can be highlighted using a sticky note.

Where are sticky notes displayed

 Sticky notes appear on the Summary View of a record, on top of the Activity section. You can use the upward and downward arrows to view the complete note.

Note: A sticky note is also retained as a regular comment in the Activity section.
