Notes & Events
Notes & Events are primarily used to log changes or events on elements independently from the versioning. This includes changes made by marketers, editors, automated importers / synchronisations, .... Simply everything that has nothing to do with the data itself but is important to know.
- An importer (CLI-script) that adds information to objects which changes were made
- Marketers / SEOs adding information which changes were made on documents like "optimized for keyword xyz ..."
There are really nearly endless possibilities what to do with Notes & Events.
Create Notes & Events
use Pimcore\Model; $object = Model\DataObject::getById(4); $note = new Model\Element\Note(); $note->setElement($object); $note->setDate(time()); $note->setType("erp_import"); $note->setTitle("changed availabilities to xyz"); $note->setUser(0); // you can add as much additional data to notes & events as you want $note->addData("myText", "text", "Some Text"); $note->addData("myObject", "object", Object_Abstract::getById(7)); $note->addData("myDocument", "document", Document::getById(18)); $note->addData("myAsset", "asset", Asset::getById(20)); $note->save();
And this is how the entry looks like:
Add Events in Pimcore backend UI
You could also add the note directly in the edit view of objects, documents and assets.
