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.

I think before smartphone that time, I was used to leave notes in my house and school.

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.

Basically, i send message to colleagues and employees using social media namely whatsup, viber and messenger.But, in case of urgency i prefer to send it mobile or make a call.Actually, i don't like to stick a note in the tables or others place because i don't think it is fruitful rather instant call and sms.

I usually call phone to my security and he starts to call with my team. Actually netting in my office,sometimes in the morning but usually it is to be afternoon..

I normally send text message for my colleagues and friends or call them.

I usually leave messages in the text through the cell phones.
