Notes by Contact Report

Redtail CRM offers you a large number of Standard Reports to assist you with quickly accessing information that is relevant to your day-to-day operations.  One such report is the Notes by Contact Report.  

To access the Notes by Contact Report, click the Reports option from your Left Menu Bar to see all of the available Standard Reports within your database: 


On the resulting page, your Notes by Contact Report is accessible within the Note Reports section: 


After clicking Notes by Contact, your report will open up.  Here's a look at a sample portion of a Notes by Contact Report: 


This report displays your Note data in several columns (Note that you can sort the report by any column's data by clicking that particular column header):

  • Contact Name — this indicates the Contact record to whom the Note was added.  Clicking the Contact Name will take you directly to their record overview.
  • Note Added — this is the Date / Time Stamp for the Note's entry.
  • Account Number — if the Note is tied to a specific Account, the Account Number will be displayed here.
  • Note — this displays the Note itself.  
  • Category — this displays the Category indicated for the Note.
  • Added By — this displays the name of the database user that added the Note. 
  • Linked Document - this displays file names for any documents linked to the note (click to download)

Above your report you'll see several additional options:


Clicking the "filter" button will open up a Filter Options modal that will allow you to set up specific parameters to control the Notes displayed within this report:

  • Date Range 
  • Note Body — By default this is blank.  You can search for specific words or phrases in your Notes here to filter by those.
  • Show note body excerpt only - check off this filter if you only want to see excerpts of each note in the report. 
  • Note Types — Select from all Note Types or handpick the Types you want to see displayed.
  • Note Categories —  By default all Note Categories are displayed.  You can click this to instead filter by any combination of the Categories available within your database.
  • Servicing Advisors — By default this is blank. If you would like to filter the Report for one or multiple specific servicing advisors, you can make those selections here.
  • Writing Advisors — By default this is blank. If you would like to filter the Report for one or multiple specific writing advisors, you can make those selections here.
  • Users —  By default all database users' Notes are displayed.  You can click this to instead filter by any combination of your database users' Notes.
  • Contacts — By default this is set to all.  If you would like to filter the Report for those Notes attached to a specific contact, begin typing their name in this box.  When you see their name show up as an option, click it to select it.


Note as well the "Saved Filters" tab here. If you find that you consistently apply the same filters to one of Redtail’s Standard Reports to meet the unique needs of your office, you now have the ability to save those filter options for quicker access to the report data you’re looking for!

Clicking export will download the data and allow you to open it up in Microsoft Excel. 
The pdf button will download the report data and you can open it up in a pdf suitable for printing.   
After clicking the search option, any of the contacts in the report you are viewing will be sent to your Advanced Search page, where you have many options for further actions with those contacts.
