Allow Reviewers to create Notes

The introduction of the Notes feature was great, my team needs a place where all our discussions and scrum meeting minutes can live. But Reviewers - who are often the type of developer/team member who is most likely to need a place for general note taking cannot create them. It sort of makes a feature which would have been really cool, inaccessible to the people who'd benefit most from it. 

I understand that from a business logic level Aha wants to limit what Reviewers can do but from my and my team's perspective this might be a deal breaker. We need one source which contains all our team's work and insights. Right now there's no place for them to do that.

    As I have more of my team use this tool having them have the ability to add notes would be very useful.

    Each of the different roles within Aha! have specific permissions and capabilities. As you know, contributors and product owners are the users who have the ability to Add/edit notes. Reviewers are able view and comment on notes, as well as to create To-do's (essentially reviewing capabilities)

    We are resistant to expand the capabilities of that role as we have spent time in this area based on substantial customer feedback to land at the current permissions framework where Reviewers

    For this use case, your developers and additional team members can comment on the Notes (which may be useful to see conversations and thoughts from specific people), but they would not be able to add notes. I hope this makes sense.

    I think you should update your user research on this one. What is the mechanism for a "reviewer" to provide feedback if not through a note? Creating a ToDo seems clunky.

    Echoing Ian here. We have a lot of tertiary members of the product team that we would like to be able to interact with notes. To-do and notes is cumbersome in many cases.
