(By default any user, irrelevant of their normal priviliges and permissions can add a note to an item)
There may be times when you want to make a note in Papertrail about the status of an item, but you don't actually want to mark it as inspected. An example of this could be if an item has been quarantined and you want to write a note about the status of repairs, but you don't actually want to make it as inspected and safe for use.
The best way to do this is by adding a note.
