So happy I found this plugin, this will make my shop-owner-life so much easier. I have almost 3000 products and sometimes need to make notes about stock-location and so on, this plugin let's me do this directly on the product page instead of numerous post-its...! THANK YOU!

This was a helpful little addition to admin-ing my Woocommerce products. I asked if it could do a couple of other things, and it couldn't. But within just a few minutes of asking, Tom added my requests to the plugin. Now I wouldn't want to work without it! If only all vendors were this responsive!
