In OpenERP, What is the difference between "`send a message`" and "`log a note`".

I found two option "send a message" and "log a note" in form view under Leads, Quotations, Sales Orders, etc., You'll find it.

What is the difference between them and what all are the uses of those options.

"Send a message"

  • "Send a message to all followers of the document".

  • It create a log as well as send messages to all followers, those who are following the document.

"Log a note"

  • "Log a note for this document. No notification will be sent"

  • It doesn't send any notification/mail to any of the followers.

Please, consider also an alternative to these 2 methods: Internal message sent only for selected recipients with no followers interruption. Have a look at the module: https://apps.odoo.com/apps/modules/9.0/internal_thread/
