Hi :-)
Sometimes when working on a case, I would like to send a note about the case to the next one picking it up. Also, sometimes I would like to leave a case on my character, because the case file is full. It would be wonderful to then go to the case-page, and write some notes there about the case. This could be about who is already checked out of the case, or other information that would be nice to remember.

So, could I get a note-field for my own notes on a case?

If you go to Sleuth Community Sites, you'll see some listings for helpers, like Dr. Watson's Sleuth Helper, which I use. There you can write your notes. However, you can't save the page, so if I can't finish a case, I print out the page with my notations and use it later for reference.

I use a privately developed helper, so I guess I will have to check out the hard way if I can extend it so that I can write the comments myself, and save them. The problem will be that if I later on hand the case over to someone else, who don't use my PC, won't be able to get the information.

If you have an apartment you can save your case their rather than in your agency and write notes 'til the cows come home. Well I suppose that depends on if your apartment is in the same city as your agency of course. But it's a work around.

You can always try a pen and paper approach.

That is an interesting idea, huglover - sounds like a detective's notepad. I, like Stooby, use the pen and paper approach if I am saving a case for later. When I was in another agency, I sometimes would PM the person picking it up if there was a good bit of pertinent info to share.

Any good nerd don't know what a pen and paper approach means... ;-)

I don't want to construct paper airplanes, I am trying to figure out how to improve my sleuthing.... ;-)

- but I liked your idea Secret Squirrel, I think I will try to do that ;-)

Hey, are you saying I'm not a good nerd?! ;-)

I use the pen and paper approach all the time when troubleshooting issues at work! Of course it eventaully gets transferred over to the computer! ;-)

And the pen and paper approach is a lot more in character. Any good gumshoe carries around a little notepad.

Write small and neat and your carbon footprint'll probably be better than the extra strain placed on the computer from the other methods.

(small disclaimer... I haven't got a clue what all this carbon footprint stuff is about so don't go to nutty when corecting me!)
