When I feel a person is busy then I leave a message on WhatsApp. When he free then respond me. I think this is a good habit because no everyone will be free to directly communicate.

I've never left messages for people because I'm not use to that. The most people from my country never do like that. And I don't prefer to leave note for people. I do just send messages.

After mobile phone and internet have been developed, Leaving message is more efficient than leaving note.

Nowadays, I think all organisations must have chats in messengers like Telegram. Paper notes became outdated long time ago.

In my last job, I used to keep notes on the PC screen to show clearly to anyone. It is an urgent situation. If it isn't urgent, I usually send a message to the What's App team group.

I send messages because it's more convenient and easier for people to reply.

How do you normally leave messages for people? Do you send text messages, or do you leave notes?
In some cases, I will leave messages for people. I always text messages directly to them by messenger app.
