Feature Request: Product Admin - Hidden Notes Fields

Highlighted

It would be nice to have a notes section that's not seen by customers on admin product pages.

 

Why?  I need to store Manufacturer links with my products (AliExpress, Etsy, and others).  And possibly some other data.

 

Would you guys consider adding a hidden notes field that can only be seen on the admin product page?

 

PS - I know there are apps that can do this, but it seems silly to have to pay money for this functionality.  Plus, it's really painful to have to navigate to the product, then select the app, etc.  It takes a long time to grab a simple note or in my case a link.

This is an enhancement that we would be glad to see as well. We have the option to add notes to customer accounts and sales, it would be very helpful to be able to do the same with our product files. We use the Shopify platform as the main database for our products, but it lacks some vital information options, like the original poster mentioned, no place to manage supplier data, manufacturer order numbers or ordering history. We could use a hidden notes field to handle most of this.

We really need this option! Put in our suppliers link so when its time to reorder a product we know exactly where to go.

The workaround we have for this, is we use Stocky. It's a Shopify owned
app that let's you set up 4 custom fields for each product. So we have the
link to the product in one field, the variant name in another, and like a
notes field.

It's also what we use now for forecasting our reorder quantities.

Couldn't a "Timeline" field be added, just like Shopify has on the Orders pages or the Transfers? If we could get the code for the "Timeline" which allows comments, attachments and mentions and be told where to insert it in the Product Template, I feel this would be an easy fix.
