The Quick Note field provides Store and Order administrators a field in which notes may be added to an order and displayed on the Order Administration page (Store > Orders).
A couple of scenarios where other IndieCommerce stores have used this field:
It makes it easy for order processing staff to view these notes without opening each order
Navigate to: Store > Configuration > Orders > Manage Fields
When you view an order in ‘edit’ mode you should now see a field called ‘Quick Notes’ where you can add notes regarding the order. This field can be modified until the order status becomes ‘Payment Received’.
Navigate to: Store > Configuration > Orders > Manage Display
This field is now hidden in the view the customer uses.
Navigate to: Structure > Views > uc_orders (Orders)
