About 6 months ago Bookmarks evolved into Saves. (see: Bookmarks have evolved into Saves)

Features of this evolution are the abilities to add private notes to a saved post, and to organise saved post into lists, both of which are quite useful.

But while both of these actions are easy to do, once they are done, the only way that you can view the private notes or check which list the post is saved in, is by finding the post in the saves tab on your profile page — you can't see them on the post's page.

I often happen to come across a post that I have previously saved, but to find out the details I have to open a separate tab/window, and then find the post in the All saves list (or in one of various particular lists). Not only does this take a while (on the site that I use the most I have over 100 items in about 10 lists), but then the details are in a separate tab/window to the actual post.

Please add a box that shows what the private notes are, and which list a saved post is in, to the saved post's page.

This would make Saves much easier to make the most out of.


It could look like something like this:

To the aforementioned post, I left this answer which got lots of up-votes but no real response. I presume it just got lost in the 3 pages of answers — which is why I'm reposting it here.

    Very nice to have, but considering not a single bug or request related to the evolved "Saves" was done yet, I wouldn't hold my breath. Mar 2 at 9:16

    +1 I was thinking for a similar idea. This will actually help users who organise the 'Saves'. E.g. "Saved in Power BI" etc. Also adding personal notes will help in understanding what to do the next time you visit the answer instead of adding a comment for the same.
