Admin Notes for Elgg 1.7

Allows admins to write and share brief notes about a user

Last updated 1316 days ago

Admin Notes lets admins make notes about users and share the notes with other admins.  The idea is to create a single spot where admins can leave notes about actions they've taken, which can then be later referenced.

It can confusing when multiple admins maintain the same large site--Was this user already warned about inappropriate behavior?  Did someone help the user with a question?  How long ago did we tell this user to change his profile picture?  Admin Notes aims to make it a bit easier.

Requires Elgg 1.7.3.

Release Notes:


  1. Using all AJAX to save the note.
  2. Fixed bug that would WSOD on list page if a user with notes was deleted.
  3. Option to delete notes when deleting a user.
  4. Formatting fixes on list note page.

    Very useful plugin indeed! Thank you Brett. Will this be available for elgg 1.8.xx?

  • Brett 647 days ago

    @michele - There's a version that works on 1.8 available on github master. For reasons unknown, I haven't made an official release here. I'll look into that when I have some time.

    hey brett thanks it will come in real handy and is brill for my site already using it (ok ok ok i am the only admin on two account my personal account and my admin account but it works a treat) just wish there was a way to see all admin notes in one page like a cronolical order as that would help greatly for to catch up quickly when i have many admins on and i just come on and know who has been warned for what and when if you catch my drift

  • Brett 596 days ago

    @enkce - It does. Look under the tools menu.
