Change physical items job -- adding notes
The Change physical items job allows you to add Internal notes 1-3 or Statistical notes 1-3 by REPLACING any notes that already exist in that field, but not by adding the note IN ADDITION TO already existing text. This option needs to be added. Also, the current job allows you to skip records that already contain notes in your selected field but a "successful" run does not report out which records were SKIPPED as a result.

This would be ideal for ALL note fields that can be changed through this job. We often need to bulk add notes to the fulfillment note, and it would be nice to not have it delete existing notes.
It would also be extremely helpful if we could PREPEND information...maybe the option to add text either at the beginning or at the end of what is already there.
We also need the ability to search by Statistical Note 1, 2, or 3 in Almas Advanced search. We can currently search by Internal note 1, 2, or 3, and it would be useful to search by Statistical Notes as well.

Being able to APPEND information to the end of an existing note without wiping out the other contents would also be really helpful
