Smart Note

This is a new module added to Modern Requirements4TFS Suite. It’s ideal for users who need to take quick notes whether they’re gathering requirements or demoing to a client. As such, this information is usually captured in a raw format and needs to be analyzed and documented for client reviews. Smart Note enables users to manage informal documents similar to the way Microsoft OneNote enables them to. This means you can record your meeting minutes and brainstorming sessions, among other things. Users can shape their thoughts and ideas, type and take notes anywhere on the page, add tags and make checklists and to-do lists. They can also share notes with other stakeholders via email.


Manage notes in a folder hierarchy

Create new folders using the folder explorer to maintain files in hierarchy. The data is stored in TFS/VSTS source control, enabling the system to maintain version history.

Version management

Files can be saved locally and only published to TFS/VSTS when ready with “Check-in-Changes.” The feature also ensures that, when someone is working on the visual, no one is able to make changes or edits until it’s checked back in.

Tag items

Highlight what’s important and express ideas by applying tags on your requirement items. And make a checklist and to-do lists for your requirements to remember important stuff.

Link to web pages

Link your notes to web pages or turn selected text into a hyperlink. You can also remove the links between notes and web pages.


One place for all of your notes

Smart Note has you covered regardless of the way you shape your thoughts and ideas in one place. Type and move your notes anywhere on the page.

Get organized

You start with Smart Note – everything lives in here. Add as many pages as you need within the folder hierarchy and put your notes in these pages to organize the requirements.
