The additional notes and descriptions in your FileMaker solution are not just for developers. Layout design, table structure, fields names, and other specific tools can make the entire commenting process easier for both the developers and the end users.

    There are so many ways of commenting/documenting to set up a solution to have that little extra 'something' that makes it more enjoyable for the end user and easier to troubleshoot, maintain, or improve later by developers. Those handful of seconds it takes can pay off a hundredfold during the lifespan of a well documented solution.
