Standard Notes in Vista
Did you know that you can setup Standard Notes that can be selected when populating Notes fields in Vista??  You can use the HQ Standard Note task in the Headquarters (HQ) module to create standard notes for frequently used information, such as billing procedures, shipping procedures, special requirements, or company policies.  Once these Standard Notes are set up, they can be pulled into header or item notes in various forms throughout the Vista system (i.e., work orders, change orders, purchase orders, subcontracts).
