Leaving notes on VMs, environments, templates, and assets

If you want to share information with other Skytap users or write short reminders for yourself, you can leave notes on VMs, environments, templates, and assets.

Each VM, environment, template, and asset can have up to 20 notes.

These notes are visible to admins and any users who have access to the resource from a shared project. They are not visible to users who have access to the VM or environment via a sharing portal.
