When I leave my house, I usually write a note to my wife and tell her where did I go.

I have just been graduated from University. So, before I used to send a text message for people instead of leave notes. But now, I work in the office and I start leave notes for people in my office. I think we should send a text message for people who we are not sure them return to the office that day. If I were sure that them return to the office that day, I would leave a note for them. Anyway, leaving a note or sending a text message, the ultimate goal is the recipient knows the information when they're not there. So, you can choose either.

Hi. I'm Yen. I often leave my message by notes or e-mail. When I was in school, I always leave the message for me to remember what things I must do in the day. Besides, I also send a text message to my colleagues to remind them to work and attend the meeting.

Normally I leave messages for me to remember me a plan next day but when I need to inform someone of something I sent voice message or text message in WhatsApp , I can know if he saw it or no .

For my colleagues at work I leave notes on the desk. For family and friends I prefer to send text messages because it is the easiest way to communicate.
