I always leave messages to peoples but they usually are my friends or my family, now the social networks have done that the communications be easier than until some decades. I hardly ever leave notes

I normally leave message in social messenger like WhatsApp. I leave messages in the form of text or voice.

I normally leave messages for my partners using text messages. I usually use the notes for me. I had used the notes when I have meetings remind, important notices and remaining work remark.

These days I usually just leave a text message for other people. Mostly I used the notes just for myself for writing important things.

I used to leave notes, but when applications such as whatsapp, messenger, etc. have caught on, there was no need to use paper notes to leave messages anymore. I use notes for myself though to remember to do or buy things. I put them on some place so that they are easily visible, otherwise I forget I wrote them; I must admit that memorising is not one of my strenghts.

Most of the time I choose to send an instant message to my co-worker instead of leaving a note. But if the message is important and detailed, I may choose leaving a note simultaneously send a message to notify my coworker.

It depends. If I have their phone numbers I will send them text messages but if they don't I will leave some notes with their secretary or person who is in charge.
