Here you can add a 'quick note' using the note icon. By doing so you can also add a follow up date to create a To Do item on your Dashboard. Another benefit of adding a 'quick note' is that it'll always be pinned to the header of the company record.

You'll notice the note icon highlighted yellow when a note has been added:

Associated Companies

The Associated Companies section of the Summary tab gives you the ability to create parent and child relationships between different company records e.g. where a company has different branches, divisions or brands.

By creating this relationship, users will be able to create a job or advert for either the parent or child company, but then select a contact from an associated company at interview, offer and/or placement stage.

Once saved, any child companies will be listed on the Summary of the company:
