User notes are pieces of information which can be assigned to registered users on your Joomla! site. For example, user notes can contain comments about 'offending' or 'difficult' users etc.

In this screen you can create a new user note or edit an existing user note. The 'editor' will be the chosen 'editor' for the user editing the note. Examples: TinyMCE, JCE or Codemirror
