If you want to send a note anonymously to someone or to a group of note recipients read this article. By default ShixxNOTE is working like this, for example imagine local network with many computers in it. Your computer name is “STEVEN-PC” and you want to send note to computer “PETER-PC”. You will write some text on note and with ShixxNOTE option “Send note to” – “Other” you will add “PETER-PC” in your recipients list and you will click send button. User of the computer “PETER-PC” is some guy Peter. Then Peter will receive note and he will see that received note is from computer “STEVEN-PC”, also on a note title there will be time stamp and immediately he will have new note menu option “Reply to STEVEN-PC”. But lets say that Steven user of the “STEVEN-PC” computer doesn’t want anybody to know that he is a sender. Steven for some reason wants to send anonymous note to few of his co-workers.
To send anonymous note you can do it always when you are in “Send note to” – “Other” dialog where you can change “Sent from:” drop down list and select “Anonymous” so nobody can not trace to you. But now I will show you how you can set in ShixxNOTE program “Anonymous” as a default setting. Right mouse click on a ShixxNOTE tray icon which is located at your taskbar to get program main menu. From main menu select “Settings” and then go to “Network settings” tab.
There you find drop down list ”Default sent from:” where default is “Computer name”. That is a program default setting so if you are sending note to other they will see your computer name in menu item “Repy to COMPNAME”. But if you select “Anonymous” in that list then yours recipients will receive exactly the same note as you have on your screen, with the same text in the note title. Which is different because normally text in title show you time when note has arrived and also note font is set to Arial Narrow. So simply select “Anonymous” in the list and click on a “Save and apply changes”. From now on notes sent from your computer will not have time stamp, Arial Narrow font and note will be without “Reply to …” note menu item.
Sometimes it can be usefull to be anonymous in this Big Brother world which is surrounding us
P.S. As you have noticed you can select also your “IP Address”, “E-Mail” or “Name” when you can put any name which will be then showed to recipient.

ShixxNOTE program developer
Editors from FindMySoft site created short video for ShixxNOTE program. So now you can look video here or at the program home page site. Video is cool. Still I have plan to release more video material for ShixxNOTE especially about sending notes. Because in this video there is only just a quick look at the program. But I always say that ShixxNOTE is not just simple desktop sticky note program, it is also LAN messenger with many communication options.
Click play and enjoy this short video !
Let’s say you have company on three floors, and you have 5 managers in your company. And you decided to have a meeting at 11am. But you don’t want to go on the third floor just to say your sales manager about meeting. Instead of that you can use ShixxNOTE for that. First you create note and write on it when and where is meeting. When you get “Send note to” other dialog, you must click on every manager you want to be present, but let’s say you always have meeting with same managers. First time you click or enter IP address of every manager, but then you click on “Save Group” button on “Send note to” other dialog.
Then program will ask you to enter group name for saved recipients. That will be here “Managers Group”. See picture below.
Your group “Managers Group” will appear in the list box above the recipients list. So any time later when you want to call a meeting again with same persons you will just select “Managers Group” from list of saved group. You can have how many you want saved groups.
After that your group is saved as a “Managers Group”. So you can always select it from list in send note to other dialog and add some more recipients or one ideal solution is that all your saved groups will appear in note menu “Send note” and you will see your saved group “Managers Group”. And click on it and all recipients in saved group will receive note promptly. You can also see that Group with more than one recipient in it will have different icon (many small boxes).
