Customer Notes - vs - Order Notes

Would be great if there could be "customer notes" in addition to "order notes"

Reason, sometimes a customer has some regular request regarding all their future orders

Instead of having to enter this each time manually as "order notes", the "customer notes" could be displayed explaining things.

I am willing to give you 90 seconds off the clock for having to open a new window and post that it was finished which should not count against your time anyway.

Hey Daniel,

Awesome! Thanks!

I took a look at the files, following the link you provided... As far as I understand I edit the files this way: add to my already existing files in OC whatever has the "+" sign and it's in green and delete the "-" lines that are in red. Is my thinking correct?

Daniel, one more question, if you don't mind. I suppose, if I make all these changes next time I upgrade OC to the latest version I will lose everything if I don't preserve these custom edited files. Which means I have keep log of all these changes.. Am I correct?

Unless my comprehension if off, by Daniel adding the code to svn, means it should find it's way to an opencart release in the future (hopefully near?). Therefore, your manual changes should show up one day in an upgrade anyway.

But if you are wanting to be cautious and teach yourself something worth-while at the same time, figure out how to install VQMod (free) and then write a small mode to make the changes you need. Your cart will always be safe from upgrades at that point.

Can you post a screenshot of this so we can see what this actually does? I think I'm interested, but a look at it would be nice.

Thanks!

DL

Great suggestion. And, I have vqmod installed, but unfortunately I'm not a coder so that's where it ends for me - I can't write my own vqmod file :(

Well you already have the code, so you just need to spend 15 minutes figuring out how to put it inside a vqmod which is really easy. Also, search for UKSB vqmod creator I think, it holds your hand step by step.

Give it a go, it's really too easy...

I doubt it's going to be 15 minutes, but anyhow, I appreciate the suggestion and your faith in my coding abilities :-)

I'm going to wait to see what Daniel says as far as this addition becoming a part of the next release of OC. If that's the case then I'm just going to go ahead and alter the existing files.

is there a version where we can just install not have to code it ourselves?

I was not happy with how the opencart system currently does customer or order notes so I built a very handy note mod that you can look at here http://goo.gl/lcG9s0. Hope it helps some of you out.

In customer notes/history, adding comments forces it into 1 line.

It does not allow any paragraphs or structure. Is there a way to fix this to allow paragraphs?
