How to change "Note modified by" to "Note Created by" in the timeline feed?

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Does anybody know how to change the default behaviour of notes in the timeline so it displays the "Created By" field rather than the "Modified By" field?

Your suggestions are greatly Appriciated.

    You can change the default form layout for Note enitty in timeline component.

    1. Go to make.powerapps.com and get in the edit page of your form.

    2. Select the timeline component on form.

    3. Find "Record settings" in the right panel and target "Notes" under REcord settings, Click the "Default form".

    4. Change the "Data field" to Created By.

    5. Publish all the changes.

    Hi,

    There is no OOB way to customize the notes on the timeline. We can’t display the "Created By" field rather than the "Modified By" field.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks!

    I think there is no OOB functions to change "modified by" field display on timeline.

    Please see annotation entity records to check it.
