Notes are great ways to add reminders or events to the calendar!

Where Are They Saved?

Notes are stored as journal entries in their own folder in the journal directory. By default, this folder is hidden from view but a Gamemaster can enable it to be visible if they wish.


Only notes in this folder will be read by Simple Calendar! If notes are moved from this folder they will not appear in the module.

Note List

To view the list of notes simply click on the Note Buttons in the Action Buttons bar next to the calendar to open the note list.


The note list can always be open by enabling the Always Show Note List client setting! Each player can configure this setting.

This list shows all notes that are visible to the current player for the specified day. Each note will show the title as well as some quick details about the note. These details can be:

Bell IconThis will show on notes that the current player wants to be reminded about.
TimeThis will show what time the note takes place at on the day

or the text all day if the note doesn't have a specific time

or it will show a date range if the note takes place over multiple days.
AuthorThis will show who authored the note. If the author says System then the note was included as part of a predefined calendar.
CategoriesAll of the note categories associated with the note will also be displayed.

This icon will show only for Gamemasters but indicate if a note is visible to all, one or more players or if only the Gamemaster(s) can see the note. The tooltip for this icon will show a list of which players can see the note.

Sorting IconIf you are the Gamemaster or the Gamemaster has given a user role permission to change the order of notes on a day, there will be a sort icon displayed. Clicking this icon and dragging the note up or down will change the order the notes are displayed on that day.
