Advising Notes: Private, Shared, Public

When you create an advising note, it automatically creates a shared note and shares it with everyone who has access to the notes for the primary school of the advisee. For example, if the student’s primary program is in the Gabelli School of Business, every note on the student’s advisee case record will be shared with all advisors and staff with access to notes for the Gabelli School of Business.
