When I make a table, there is a column we left for the things we forget to write down on it. What would we call this item? Remarks or Note?

I would use Remarks if the material was of interest to the document reader. I would use Notes if the material was a reminder to the author that re-work might be required.

  • Hi, Nice answer. But actually, I mean that what's the best choice for the situation if I just want to remind the worker please do not forget to write down the important things which was not include in the table.
