Notes widget
Updated over a week ago

With the Notes widget, you can add text to your Start.me page. Use it as a Post-it to quickly jot down a phone number or a name. Or spice it up with Markdown coding to upgrade your note to a regular instruction. This feature is especially useful for shared pages. Here's everything you need to know about our Notes widget.
