So I am testing out the Workflow tool for this week's sermon and following along with all of the instructions.  However, as I'm working through each step and adding notes to the step, I starting to wonder about the process and when/where does this tool work w/ notes?  In other words, if I'm adding notes into the Workflow, it doesn't seem to make sense to now go back and create a note file for all of my notes.  Or does it make more sense to open up a fresh note at the same time as a fresh workflow and add content to each as needed? 

I think the above might sound a bit confusing but the short of it is; what are the thoughts on how these two functions work together?

The notes you put in the Workflow tool are actually being created in the notes tool.  If you edit these same notes in the Notes Tool they are edited in the workflow.

Dennis, I consider Workflows a powerful new tool and the new Notes Tool an awesome upgrade. The intersection between the two, however, is still lacking IMO. At least four (more coming) of the suggestions in this post have to do with the WF/Notes interaction.

  1. WF Editor Suggestion: Support Multiple Notes per Step
  2. WF Editor Suggestion: Add "Project Name" field (significant to Notebooks)
  3. WF Editor Suggestion: Auto-set Note Attributes
  4. WF Editor Suggestion: Deep Link Notes

I sure hope that it won't need to be 'This VS That' but a 'This WITH That'!
