Duplicating the layout of a tab

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create a new tab that has the same properties as the "Notes" Tab.  Basically, I want my new tab to be able to do the same thing...add notes, record the date they were added and the user that added them, but since these notes will be specific to a specific aspect of our job...I don't want them to get lost in the regular "Notes" Tab.  So is there a way to create a new tab that has the same capabilities as the original Notes tab? Can I duplicate the layout somehow?

 

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

Manuela

Re: Duplicating the layout of a tab

IT's not possible to add a second notes tab.  However, it may be possible to to achieve what you are looking for with the HIstory Tab and custom activiy types. With the history option, you  can have a history type for just that job tracking you are looking for and this could be turned off by filter.

If you need it, you can add an addition tab like Notes or history, but only via the SDK or an addon using it like itTables:
