Advisors and other authorized PS Administrators can record notes about their interactions with Advisees/Students directly into PeopleSoft. Because these notes will be stored in PeopleSoft, you can then reference the notes at any point from PeopleSoft.
Please Note: Advising Notes are currently not accessible for students due to a PeopleSoft bug that could result in FERPA violations. Oracle is working on this bug and is expecting to have a solution in place soon.
