Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Visits work center (for example).
  2. Go to the Visits view.
  3. Open and Visit.
  4. On the Overview facet, see that the Notes field is not Rich Text enabled.

The same can be reproduced for Tasks and Phone Calls.


The Notes field is a standard field designed to have plain text.


This is the standard behavior of the system.
As an alternative, an extension field can be created with Type "Formatted Text".
