Description Arthur Benoit 2016-02-24 15:18:15 EST
Description of problem:
On the system status page it would be helpful to have a loan note field. Since
the Beaker header section always stays the same, having the warning note field to add system specific information would make it easier for users to see notes. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
This would be like the " Remote power control available" field but would be customize-able.

Expected results:
Have the ability to add highly visible notes to beaker page.

Arthur, could you please give some examples of the notes you would want prominently displayed? That will help us to understand the best way to display them.

Right now, system notes are treated as Markdown and are expected to be (possibly) several paragraphs long, so we can't necessarily display them in the "quick info" box as is.
Comment 2 Arthur Benoit 2016-02-29 12:02:18 EST
What I'm thinking is one sentence. Example:

System has not serial console See notes tab for KVM information
Loans only for FCoE Bugzilla or hardware unavailable on other systems
Manual OS install is required see Notes tab
System fails to power on after, requires beaker power off and on.

The idea is to make sure users see the System Notes: no matter which tab
the user selects. I've attached an example in PDF.
