I used to put some notes within certain contact details with my N9 and they were pushed correctly to my Google account, but People app in my Jolla doesn't even show them. It would be nice to add notes to contact details as well as sync them with supported online services.

Looks like duplicate or addition to my question here https://together.jolla.com/question/2093/people-add-custom-labels/

Yes, your question is much broader than mine. But I think that notes in contacts should not be a custom field but a default one.

Reopening because NOTE is part of the vCard standard.

Generally speaking, compatibility to Google (if we like it or not) is a must for market penetration. No Googlian will consider a Jolla without havng the possibility to sync it's data.

Any update on this? This is a really annoying...

Notes are imported from sources such as Google contacts, but we don't yet have any UI to report them, or to add/edit them. It isn't a complicated task, so it's just a matter of getting to the front of the queue, I'm sorry to say.

So you say the Notes for a contact are imported - we just can't see them?

I ask because I imported all my contacts from my N9 - contacts which have a lot of notes.

So these Notes will still be there? When the People app adds the functionality / UI to show them?

Should this issue be flagged with the 'roadmap' tag?

This is a must have feature, please add notes support to the contacts (it can't be so difficult adding this to the GUI if the field already exists in the data).

The absence of this feature is the reason I can not use my Jolla. Notes represent important information and the only way to complete the details of a contact. They are the result of much personal work gathering information that may not be included in any other way. In a project like this is especially incomprehensible lose the only option to freely expand contact information. Please reconsider the priority of this feature and let us use and recommend this Jolla seriously.

In any case congratulations for this project, we need options like this.

Thank you

Yes, notes are very important to use contacts productively.
