User Notes in Joomla 2.5

User Notes is a great new feature that has been added to Joomla 2.5 to help manage all those administrators and registered users that have accounts on your Joomla website.

In large websites with hundreds of user accounts it is sometimes hard to remember, over a period of time, who is who and what role each user may have on the website.

With user notes in Joomla 2.5 you can add in extra little bits of information about each user to help remind you of who they are and their exact role on the website.

User notes can also be used to track issues that registered users may be having on a website. User related problems with their accounts can be added to User Notes allowing website administrators to follow up and attend to issues a user may be having.
