This article shares the process of adding the Notes module to site pages. This module lets you add notes on your website, which do not expire as news posts.

Follow these steps:
- Log into your SL account with the webmaster rights.
- Navigate to the Toolbox > Site Center. If you do not see this option under the Toolbox, it is likely that you do not have the necessary rights.
- Select the intended page to edit.
- Click the Edit button. The Edit button does not show on selecting a Navigation Header or a Minisite in the site map. Make sure you choose the intended page correctly, as seen in the example below.
- Hover over an empty block and click on it to add a module.
- Select the Notes tile from the Insert Module screen.
- The following pop-up appears. This is similar to the news module, expect that there is no expiry for the notes. Adjust default settings if necessary.
- Number of News Post to Show: This is the number of most recent news that will appear in this module.
- Alternative Source: This is the source of the news. For example, select District if you need only district news to appear here.
- Show "view all" link: This will show a link at the end of the module to open a new page with all the news.
- Hide if no content: This will hide the module if there is no news to show.
- Click Options on the toolbar of the module to revisit these options when changes are needed.
- Rename the Module on the toolbar. The title will appear in all caps.
- Add a new note by clicking the 'Create New Note' button on the toolbar.
- After clicking, you are redirected to the Notes page, where you can create and publish your notes.
- You can control how many notes are viewable using the Options menu on the toolbar and by deleting old notes.
Note: Do not type notes text in all caps to keep your site 508 compliant.
The Notes display on the page where the module was added and displays in the page preview, as configured. The size and shape of the module depend on its location on the page.
