Email Sticky Notes

By: rrao

Starting from Zimbra Collaboration 8.0.x and ahead, please use the next Zimbra instead. This Zimlet is not supported in ZCS 8.0.x or ZCS 8.x

Lot of times when you are reading an email you get some thoughts like "oh I need to confirm dates", or "John's phone # is 650 350 1122" or "Need to include that PPT" etc that you want to remember. But there is no easy way to capture that thought.

This Zimlet solves that problem by allowing you to make quick notes and attach them to that email. Once you attach a Sticky Notes, it will automatically pop-up that notes next time you re-open that email.

UPDATE: Version 1.6 now allows adding Sticky Notes to Contacts & Calendars

How to use:

Click on the StickyNotes button or drag-and-drop a message onto the Zimlet to apply a stick note.

Visual Indication (via Tags):

After enabling the Zimlet, a yellow-colored tag called "Emails with StickyNotes" is created. When a user attaches a stickyNote to a message, the Zimlet tags that email or conversation with this tag. The tag is removed when the stickyNote is deleted.

Searching (via Tags):

Users can search and keep track of all stickyNote emails by clicking on the tag or by searching for it in the main search bar.

Release Notes:

  1. Version 1.6: allows attaching StickyNotes for Contacts & Appoints as well
  2. Version 1.5: This version adds scalability via CustomMetadata API. You can now add Sticky Notes to as many emails as you want.
  3. This is only compatible with ZCS 6.0.7+
  4. Previous data stored in LDAP is kept/converted to MySQL.**

  • Voice Mail in your inbox no problem plus be green! 

    By: Mike G on on 7/1/15 for version 1.5

    I use this Zimlet to make notes on calls that come into my inbox from sales.  I'll click on the wav file and the sticky note.  I can put in the persons name, phone number (since sometimes it's different) and purpose of the call.  Then I call them and can make even more notes.  This Zimlet makes me more productive and GREEN.  I'm not wasting paper.

  • New version available 

    By: zetalliance on on 7/1/15 for version 1.6

    Please see https://github.com/Zimbra-Community/adopted/tree/master/com_zimbra_stickynotes for a version compatible with 8.x!

  • Great work! 

    By: aitormartinezvalderrama on on 7/1/15 for version 1.6

    Great work! It works fine. Thanks.

  • Very Cool 

    By: gimecoffee on on 7/1/15 for version 1.6

    How hard would it be to allow mail in shared folders to be sticky noted by shared users?  My users can already see and edit sticky notes added by the folder owner but they can't originate sticky notes and the stick tag doesn't show even though the owner tagged it.Thoughts?

  • Does not work in Zimbra 7 

    By: gurubert on on 7/1/15 for version 1.6

    This zimlet currently does not work in Zimbra 7.

  • Zimbra 8.0.2 and this zimlet 

    By: mitesh.choksi on on 7/1/15 for version 1.6

    Does this zimlet work for Zimbra 8.0.2 and has it worked? I can't get to see it

  • ZCS 8.5.0? 

    By: KiegKhan on on 7/1/15 for version 1.6

    This is a great Zimlet, but the fact it only seems to work on 6.x means that all the new versions of ZCS cannot use this one.  I loaded it onto my 8.5.0_GA, and while it appears to load without any problems, there is no way to actually create a Sticky Note on an email.Zimlets are a great idea, but if they are not updated when the main application is updated, or new versions of the main application remove the compatibility for Zimlets, then they are essentially useless to deploy.

  • very cool 

    By: postman on on 12/22/14 for version 1.6

    Just like post-it notes, very cool

  • Great Zimlet 

    By: savebyj on on 2/13/13 for version 1.5

    Does as advertise. Would be perfect with these improvements (at least in my opinion):1. Tags will sync between ZD and Webclient. Right now they show up as tagged in the web client but the actually data note is not there. Would be awesome if they synch.  2. Note window would close when you scroll down to the next window.  Otherwise fantastic!

  • Zimbra 8.0 and Stick Notes 

    By: apintaudi on on 9/30/12 for version 1.6

    With Zimbra 8.0 I missed the stick notes button on some windows (e-mail and address book).Are they compatible ?Will come a new version to resolve this ?Thanks !!!

  • Works not with contacts and calendar on Zimbra 7.1.3 

    By: reinhard on on 12/13/11 for version 1.6

  • Doesnt work with 7.1.3 

    By: soba@ukw.edu.pl on on 8/9/11 for version 1.6

    Doesn't work with 7.1.2 version and later (with external GAL). https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=63170

  • Disappointing 

    By: Pat Soutter on on 6/24/11 for version 1.6

    I use Windows 7 and ZD 7.0I wanted to be able to add a note to an email that I could use to locate later.The note does not attach to the email unless you manually add a tag.Any tag will do. There is no specific "StickyNote" tag.I can search for emails with a StickyNote but cannot base my search on the contents of the note.The note does not disappear when I highlight another email.

  • Sticky Notes is not on calendar 

    By: fabius910 on on 4/5/11 for version 1.6

    Hi! I'm an Italian user of Zimbra... I'm sorry for my bad english... I have a question of this zimlet... i have installed this zimlet but it isn't in the calendar... i would to add a notes on appointment but there isn't the symbol of sticky notes while in the emails i can add notes with no problem... Thank's for the reply!

  • Close sticky note? 

    By: i2ambler on on 2/22/11 for version 1.6

    The sticky does not seem to go away once you click on another message.. Can this be fixed?

  • Viewing the sticky notes 

    By: dmcdermid on on 1/4/11 for version 1.6

    I installed the zimlet and can create a sticky note.  How do you later view a sticky note that is created?

  • Only display when I click on the Sticky Notes button. 

    By: Hatrix on on 10/21/10 for version 1.6

    That extension would be so incredibly usefull to me, but my main issue is that I do not want to see the post it's every time i just look on the mail. My laptop is very small so the sticky note takes away lot of screen real estate and it is enoying if I just browse quickly through different mails. A configuration parameter "Only show on Click on Sticky Notes" would be fantastic, so I know they are there (Tag), and I can few them when I want (Click).  thanks, bestRay

  • Does not work with shared folders 

    By: signal_noe on on 9/1/10 for version 1.6

    I hoped it works with shared folders because that would make thinks much easier. But unfortuatly it does not. 5 Stars as sonn as it works with shared folders.

  • Great feature 

    By: krabina on on 6/7/10 for version 1.3

    would be a nice improvement if it would not only be available for e-mails, but also folders, contacts, etc.

This Zimlet brings a "sticky notes" feature to Zimbra. But instead of being stand-alone sticky note feature, a user can attach different sticky notes to different email messages, which is similar to tagging + flagging messages. Visual Indication and Searching: After enabling the Zimlet, a yellow-colored tag called "Emails with StickyNotes" is created. When a user attaches a stickyNote to a message, the Zimlet tags that email or conversation with this stickyNote. The tag is removed when the stickyNote is deleted. Users can search and keep track of all stickyNote emails by clicking on the tag or by searching for it in the main search bar. Click on the sticky note toolbar button or drag-and-drop a message onto the Zimlet to apply a stick note.
