We use workflows to automate many tasks we would normally be manually managing. I would like the ability to use workflows to "Create Note" on a Contact and/or Company record.
Example 1: Following a training, we provide our clients incentives. Currently our team manually adds a Note to the contact record of the individual who attended and also associates it with the company record of that individual. The note is the same for every individual that attends, but the incentive differs depending on the training. This helps our sales and support teams know exactly what was offered and when the incentive expires.
Example 2: Occassionally we use workflows to fix/update/change properties as we improve our internal processes. For these situations, it would be helpful to include a generalized Note on either the Contact or Company record explaining why the record/property was changed. Especially since we typically delete the workflow after the updates have been made.
